Google Translate App. Just Got Better

There are two major changes to the translate app that runs on both the iPhone and Android phones.

1. When the app is open you can tap the camera icon and point your phone at the foreign  phrase. The app then translates on the fly the whole image. Worked very well for me today on my first tryScreenshot_2015-01-17-12-38-24

 

2. When two people are speaking (Spanish/English) you can tap the mic and the app will start a dialog with the two languages. Very cool.

How Much Time Do You Spend On Your Smartphone?

The answer for me is about 3 hours a day – which translates to about 16% of my day interacting with my Nexus 5. Too much? A minute percentage is talking on the phone. In fact my Claro records say that I average about 120 minutes a month which is about 4 minutes a day.  I use my phone for research, email, photos, podcasts, movies, reading. I’m never bored and I feel that the phone is an aid rather than a dependent.

NPR has a brilliant story – Bored… And Brilliant? A Challenge to Disconnect From Your Phone.

I encourage everyone to listen. And lets start a dialog.
