If Only There was An App That Ran On Magic???
My wife is studying to transfer her nursing license and since we live in Israel, most of the studying is in Hebrew.
Crappy for her since its not her first language. She spends a lot of time translating every word one by one on Google translate.
Well, I have had an incredible app on my phone called WordLens which I did NOT delete during my app purge.
Good thing too.
I just scored big time points!
It’s an app that when you hover over the words, it automatically changes them to a different language on the screen.
I think I rushed to download it when it first came out because I thought it was ridiculously cool, but never found any value in it because it didn’t have the languages I needed.
Too bad it’s not in Hebrew because for my wife who is studying out of Hebrew text books, this would be invaluable.
But for kicks, I thought maybe there would be an update that had Hebrew.
Google Now Owns WordLens
Well, Google now owns the technology. Apparently this happened in January and I missed it. And it does Hebrew.
Have a look.
I shouldn’t be too surprised considering the other amazing things they are doing with images and Google Translate.
Did you know you can talk to people using the app. Almost came in handy in Russia… except I forgot to use it.
I love living in the future!
