  2. Translate last photo taken

    Perhaps the writers of this app don’t use it, but when living in a foreign country, much of what needs to be translated comes from an app, or a source which can be captured by a screen shot.

I have to put my phone into airplane mode for the Translator app to work now, if the data connection is active, the app just hangs in the home screen and…
