    Read for Me! v1.0

    Read for Me! makes it insanely easy to get a translation of a printed text simply by taking a picture of it. The app recognizes up to 30 languages and translate them between 36 languages.

    Why Read for Me!?

    You may already have encountered a situation where you want to read signs, menus, notices, etc... but you can not do it as it is written in a foreign language you don't know. Read for Me! will help you to get a translation of that printed text simply by taking a close-up picture it.

    Price: 2.99$

    Thanks for the interest!! Please let me know what you think of it on the appstore, by email or here.
    Also one thing to consider (it's written in the app description on the app store) is that it only support printed text. Handwriting have poor results as well as if you take a photo of a screen due to the refresh rate of the screen.
