Summer Break is here!
If you are traveling this summer (and even if you are not) we encourage you to share your favorite travel app!
In the comments section, share the app you love, the cost (if there is a cost…many great apps are free), and a brief description of what it does and how you use it.
Check back often as others share to learn something new!
To kick it off, here is one:
Google Translate is available both on Android and iPhone. It is FREE! It can translate close to 90 different languages including Italian, Spanish, French, Chinese, and Japanese to name a few. There are several very handy ways to use it.
You can type the word or phrase,
speak the word or phrase,
or use the camera to instantly translate a sign or a menu!
(Currently, this feature works with from French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish)
Here are the links to download the free app. Happy translating!
Note: Android users may download language packs so Google Translate can be used offline. This feature is not yet available for iPhone users.
We look forward to seeing your posts.
