        • Southern and Northern Vietnamese Dialects

          I have not found any app or online translator that features a Southern Vietnamese dialect. All translators that I have found use the northern dialect, which is the more formal, but less-commonly spoken dialect for many Vietnamese communities outside of Vietnam, especially those in the U.S. An option for the southern dialect would be immensely helpful.

          • Lets go works in landscape mode too! iPad etc...

            It is truly annoying not to allow landscape mode on IPad.

            • Support for split screen

              So this app is really awesome and for the iPhones is just perfect but for IPad is missing 2 features. I am talking as a guy who reads a lot in other languages than my native one so all the time I have 2 apps opened one of them being an translator. So the features that I am talking are landscape mode and split screen support for IPad.

              • Keep the mic on

                It would be a lot more helpful if the app wouldn’t auto stop the microphone. After maybe 10 seconds it will stop listening and play what they have said so far. I guess it’ll detect a slight pause but it would be better if we determined when to stop the recording.

                    • Transliteration into English/Latin alphabet

                      What is your name? tranalates to तुम्हारा नाम क्या है? in Hindi. This is useful only if I know how to read Hindi. The usefulness of the app can be multiplied by many times if the transliteration for तुम्हारा नाम क्या है? which is "tumhara naam kya hai" is also shown.

                      This is true for any non-English translations.

                      • Remove text limitations

                        The number of character allowed in this app compared to google is far less. Pls remove the limitation

                                  • Real-time Camera Trabslation

                                    Just installed the app as I was using Google’s but its Japanese ttanslation can be unintentionally hilarious. Howere the great thing about it is that you don’t need to take photo to translate as it translates in realtime with its camera function. Something I still can’t see in this app or haven’t figured put yet,

                                    • Enable External Keyboard Support

                                      With the new iPad Pros coming out, more and more people will be using iPad's with external keyboards. Having support for keyboard with shortcuts as well would be great!
