    Just point the camera at the document and take a picture, and the scanning begins…wow, this Evernote Scannable is pretty cool!

    Hmmmm…If they can make this Google Translate app able to successfully recognize the handwriting I’d be pretty amazed, but for now I don’t think it’s anything special.

    The fact that google translate can translate speech instantly and it listens to response makes things so much easier…..thanks….

    @MoonFy*, agreed, i like it even better that it works also by taking a picture of the text and it just gets translated….I really think this one’s useful because we’re all in a constant need of translating things, so it’s good to have an app that makes that easier for us….
