OneTongue App: Your Translation Companion
If you plan on traveling to a foreign country in the near future or you have friends, clients/co-workers who speak a different language than you, we've got a communication tool for you.
First Mobile app to provide instant translation of any language while chatting
iDevelopment LLC, an app creation company, announced the launch of its new OneTongue (https://itunes.apple.com/
“We’re excited to be first app development to launch an app that allows chat-mates to chat in their own language while chatting with the person who speaks different language. Now a english language speaking person can chat with Spanish speaking person without any language barrier.” Said CEO of iDevelopment LLC
Users need to following steps while using OneTongue:
1. The Handshake: flick your phone with your wrist, at the same time as another phone, and the two phones will automatically connect
2. The Language: set the language you want to type in by switching between international keyboards
3. The Chat: start chatting and watch how messages are instantly translated back and forth between phones - in each phone's own language!
iDevelopment LLC is US based app development company. The company is very dedicated to only app development. iDevelopment has already 1 more app on Apple App Store with name of “CurryVideos”
The OneTongue app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone to offer instant translations so you can easily and quickly communicate with others. There is no need to carry around a book of translations, or worse yet, spend hundreds of dollars on language courses when you can refer to this app instead.
Not Your Typical Translation Tool
This app is just so different than your typical translation tool, it actually feels really fun and cool to use. Using this app requires you to do a "handshake" with the other person's mobile device. This means you need to flick your phone using your wrist while the other person does the same thing, at the same time. This is called a "handshake" and allows them to connect to each other.
Now you're ready to choose the language that you plan to type in and you're ready to start talking. You type out what you want and the messages are translated between your device and the device of the person you are chatting with.
This instant translation requires iOS 7 and of course both parties need to have the app. As well you need to add international keyboards to your device and turn on your Bluetooth.
The app has recently undergone a number of bug fixes so that users can look forward to a smoother performance.
What is Supported?
There is actually a very large list of languages that the app can translate between: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese, Italian, Deutsch, Korean, and plenty more.
The translations are instant so you can have a real-time conversation with each other and not have to worry about looking up words and in the process losing your whole train of thought. This makes communication so simple and quick and really can help you in so many different ways.
I find the user interface to be quite pleasing as it is incredibly simplistic and looks much like a text message conversation would. You can see the history of messages allowing you to follow the conversation flow. You can even speak your text in rather than type it if you want. It’s all about making your life simple.
