    Google buys Word Lens - Available Free Download
    Google just bought the APP Word Lens and it is currently available for free with all the in-APP Language Packs free as well.
    Possible limited time offer, so if you are interested, jump on it.
    I'm playing with it now and seems to work fairly well.

    Thanks a lot!!

    I have admitted to my weakness before . . . but I get a pass here because this is FREE.
    Engineer rules at an EXPO say you don't have to need any of the freebies being handed out at the display booths as long as you still have room in your bag.

    Plenty room in the bag - don't forget to open it up and add all the translation languages while they're free.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    I tried this last night and I have to say, it's quite impressive. It's certainly not perfect but it gets the job done for a quick and rough translation.

    Off to Russia in a couple of months - this app is going to be brilliant!!! Practising on Russian images from Google images displayed on iPad. Am totally amazed.

    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.
