QuestVisual have come out with a fascinating iPhone app (that I’ve yet to test) that translates English<->Spanish in photos on the fly – it really is quite amazing to watch. I’d love to know how they do it, or more about Quest Visual, but there isn’t much more than an intro from the author.

It doesn’t work on handwritten text or stylised text, but nor does it need an internet connection to work and best of all, it comes at the price we can all afford.
