    I had a phone for sale, someone contacted me and we set a place to meet. When I get there is was a Spanish speaking person, they didnt speak English. I whip out Google Translate and speak into the app and it translated it out good enough I am assuming since he was able to reply and we were able to make a deal.

    Have you had any real world use with this app?

    It is very good. Although you do have to put a lot of faith into the translation - and if you don't have any idea of the language your translating into - you can never be 100% sure it hasn't made a #meme

    Yes, I have.... and it nearly caused an "international incident". I will never use it again. It might be passable for Spanish, virtually useless for Romanian.
