Stuck In A Foreign Country With A Language Problem? Use Google Translate On Your iPhone!

Who here can say they speak 64 languages and can translate from one to another in the blink of an eye? I know I can. I just need to pull out my iPhone and start Google Translate, a free app downloaded from the App Store.

Google Translate offers two methods for inputing the text to translate from one language to another. You can choose to type the text unsing the keyboard or say the words out loud. I should note however that speaking the text instead of typing it is not available in all 64 languages. When it comes to Google Translate returning the translated text back to you, the same methods apply. The app will either show you the text or speal it for you, again not all languages benefit from this.

The app’s interface is dead-easy to use. You have to pay attention to the two languages you’re translating from [...]

Breaking! Google Maps Helps Luke Skywalker Identify Death Star Trap

Since Apple’s iOS6 debut, the company removed Google Maps as the system’s default Maps app and replaced it with its own internal creation, which people have dubbed to be an abomination. Memes started springing all of the internet, some straight up funny, others as silly as the Maps app. My two favorite memes have to deal one with Star Wars and the other with one of the most used joke intros of all time (photos courtesy of and respectively.)

While the punch lines may still very well apply to the default Maps app, iOS users now have an alternative in the form of…wait for it…Google Maps. Yes, that’s right. The internet search behemoth has finally released its own maps app in the AppStore. And the Apple review team has approved it, thereby making it, within 24 hours from its release, the number 1 top free app [...]
