Agreed. It's a shame, since it's exactly what I'd want for a trip through Central America.

Just for fun, I printed off 2 restaurant menus and a screen capture from Telemundo and pointed this app in their direction. It kept changing its mind about the translation, to the point that it was impossible to read. It did pick up the "Camarones $2.95" as "Shrimp $2.95" but had trouble with almost everything else.

It would probably be better off having the user take a still photo then translating that.
