    Hi guys
    Just back from Ireland and found a great app for you,
    It's called word lens , it allows your camera to read text in French/German/Spanish/Italian/ Russian into English in real time, you don't need to be online to use it,
    At last foreign menu will be no longer a game of chance,
    At the moment it's free including the language selection so suggest downloading asap,
    Apparently more languages will be available at a price later,
    IMO it's an amazing piece of software and free at the moment,

    Downloaded and tried.. clever app, but found it a bit of a faff to use..
    a bit like all the junk in the shed.. it might come in useful

    the reverse text.. ? what can that be used for apart from reading the bonnets of ambulances .. and fire engines. :LOL:
