Word Lens – Now thats clever

Iphone smallI’ve just downloaded an app for my iPhone which is very clever. When the iPhone came out I thought of ideas for great apps, one of them was to be able to point your phone at foreign words like signs and for the phone to translate the sign with the words translated. It would work like how you would see the sign if you knew the language, like looking at foreign words through some magic english translator glasses. I thought to write an app like this would be almost impossible, but there is now an app called ‘Word Lens’ which does this. Currently it only translates from English to Spainish and vise-versa, but I can imagine it would be great if it could work if you visited places like China or Japan.
