Word Lens: Real-Time Translation via Augmented Reality


Word Lens is a real-time translation app that uses optical character recognition and augmented reality to translate text.

The App is free at the itunes store however, the free version only offers 2 demo modes.: Erase Words and  Reverse Words.  The Spanish/English &  English/Spanish translator costs $4.99 each.

The demo looks awesome but the app only works well under adequate lighting and clear text. Handwritten fonts and stylized fonts don’t work at all.  More languages are coming soon!
