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

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

  2. 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.

  3. Cantonese Offline Language

    One advantage this app has over other translator apps is support for cantonese Chinese. It would be good if we could offline download the language for use in Hong Kong instead of relying on constant data transfer.

  4. 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.

  9. One-Click Translate Last Photo

    I like your translator, but I have so far refused to “love” it.

    It’s too clumsy to translate an image... On iOS, I need to:
    - open translator
    - click the camera button
    - click on the photo library button
    - click on moments
    - click on the image

    It’s a pain.

    As far as the language is concerned, I live in China, so my default behaviour for photos should be translation of Simplified Chinese to English.

    Can we PLEASE have one click from the main screen to translate the last photo using the default translation?

    Otherwise, I love it.

  11. Full Blown IM

    While I can have conversations, they appear to close when using different parts of the app. Is there a way to have multiple permanent conversations (like in WhatsApp) with the different members connected in their own languages?

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  19. The translation is not smart when the sentence split into two line in camera mode

    The translation is not smart when the sentence split into two line in camera mode. The Mr.Translator has a”Join” function for this. I’ve tested it using English to Chinese.

  20. 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,
