    Viewed it-I am in awe. It appears at a well timed speed and is easy to follow.

    No doubt it will arrive on Android pretty soon, too bad the camera in my phone is so ****ty that it won't be able to read any signs anyway


    But a great concept, I could almost want to buy an iPod Touch for it.

    Google Mobile with Goggles on my iPhone does the translation in any language, but it is a three step operation and you need the network.

    Makes no difference as you don't have the hardware for it anyway.

    John- whether I can load it or not I really don't need an English/Spanish translation for anything.

    This is a cool app. So many apps are solutions looking for problems. This one seems very useful.

    Maybe, without Word Lens, they wouldn't even know you can get food in a Cantina.
