iTranslate

30 12 2016

If you are urgently looking for a translation you should try out iTranslate for  Watch.

All that glitters is not gold especially when it comes to automated translations.

I don’t have experiences in other languages than German and Thai but translations from English into these two languages are most often horrible. Microsoft’s automated translations of their knowledge base articles are good examples for the lack in quality.

So use iTranslate just in the free version if you like to look up some word translations on your Apple Watch or iPhone. The app is quite good but it again shows the sheer impossibility of acceptable automated translations.

Btw, as long as the grammar of languages isn’t changed into processor-friendly rules we won’t see acceptable translations done by machines. Sadly.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose your language
  2. Use Scribble or Voice input
  3. Wait for response of iPhone
  4. See and hear the translation

Thanks for surfing by.

Bug fixes and stability improvements

“The method, as modeled by Andrew Cornett on Twitter, uses stretched ear piercings to hold the AirPods in place, allowing you to listen to music with only a mild level of discomfort. Think of your holey lobes like little earphone cup holders, finally giving purpose to vestigial parts of the human body that otherwise serve so little purpose that societies across the world ritually stab and force objects through them for no real reason.”

Just a camera shot

21 12 2016

The surrounding area of Ban Dong Phong, a small village near Khon Kaen, Thailand, where I live since 4 months.

The shot was taken with my iPhone 6S Plus at 6:30 this morning.

Modern smartphones can replace classical cameras not only for normal users like me. Most often it’s not the image quality which is important but the brain adding lots of thoughts to it.

Thanks for dropping by.





iOS Feedback

19 12 2016

Dear iOS developers.

Why don’t we have this landscape mode on other iPhones than the Plus series?

The form factor of the smaller sibling is not too small. I tried it out on a handcrafted dummy with the exact size of an iPhone 7 and a fixated true to scale screenshot of the 7 Plus.

So what are your arguments to not enable this feature?

Thanks in advance.
