Apps Needed To Go Traveling

Have you gone to another country that doesn’t speak English? Ever have trouble trying to communicate with the local people. Feeling frustrated with yourself because you have no idea how to say “where is the toilet?” Or actually understanding what is on that bottle that you want to buy is it the right product that you need. Worry not I have a solution for you. Now what you need is your iPhone iPad, android, computer and any other technology that you can carry around with you without doing your back in.

This app is called IMG_7911, it’s an amazing app that can translate to mostly any language that is popular. What it does is taking the picture of the image of letters and translate it into the language that you need. This app will save your life, your hair and your stomach will thank you for it. (My definitely did) so there is no need for you to poison yourself anymore, now you know what you are buying. I would also suggest for you to find a translator apps. A good translator I will help you communicate with the locals, I know, I know a lot of you out there will be saying actually translate app is not very accurate or very good. But do you prefer not to be able to say anything to the local or would sacrifice that bit of accuracy just so you could communicate with the people? Even though it would be through an app that is not that accurate but it still is getting across and communicate what you’re trying to say. (You can choose which direction you want to go to.)

Now for your laptop, I would recommend that you use Google Chrome or safari they would have translation widget that hopes translate any website that is in another language. It won’t be 100% accurate but at least, you know what you’re looking at and what you’re getting into. You don’t want to be signing up for any crazy schemes and being tricked into doing that because you don’t know what you’re signing up for. (So just be careful out there you never know what’s really is going to happen on the Internet. There is some crazy stuff happening even if it’s 1000 miles away from you. Scary right)

Hand Writing On Ipad and Iphone

Writing on paper and using Photo Translate apps is still not quick enough for me seriously I have the attention span much less than a goldfish, that saying would be true on me. Do you  ever find yourself being completely and utterly so LAZY that even the quickest way you found a to do something still end up being very slow. That Happen to me seeing as I found the Photo Translate method still quite slow for me. I when ahead and try to find another way to do handwriting even quicker. 

What you need is your  iPhone or iPad. For iPad make sure you enable the Multitasking Gesture if you don’t want to be banging your head against the wall or on the edge of throwing your iPad against the wall. (That is the no return action, the only thing  you can do is cry your heart out for your injured Ipad.) Also, you can use another device if the apps work on there. and one last thing a touch pen would help a lot.

Any Kind Of Touch Pen: SO MANY PENNNNNN

goodnoteswork for IPhone and IPad. You write on the device and once you finish you can easily just select the writing and convert it into text. The only thing you need to watch out for is on the iPhone and iPad there is a close up box, a zoom in the box and that need to be the smallest it would go. So that when it is converted from the handwriting to text it will fill the full page. If you don’t do it, once you get it to Word it would just fit half of the page and you going to have to sit there going back line by line to get it to a full sentence. (I made that mistake so learn from me, I wanted to bang my head on something.) On iPad The only fault would be that it is big and sometimes it hard to write on it if you’re not on a table or just in bed writing (who doesn’t do that) but luckily the armrest function works very well so you can rest your arm writing HOORAY! Overall it a good app and it sink very well from iPhone to iPad I use this the most. It is £5.99 but so totally worth it and there is are the function that you can do with the app but I don’t really use it much.


My Script Memo: this app only works on iPad, sorry iPhone. It has an area where you can rest your hand and just write, it might make your risk a bit tired because you are moving from section to section like writing on paper. There is no zoom in function on this app. However that doesn’t have any effect on the converting part, you can write as big as you want and it would recognize that you’re writing a sentence. This app is free. (Yeah, we all love free stuff.)

unnamed (1)Write Pad: work on Ipad and Iphone it will automatically change your handwriting in the text as you write, this is not my favourite app. As I have to wait for it to convert the writing, it’s really distracting me from my writing flow so it’s not really good for me. However, I am only a one person opinion a lot of you might like this app because of the fact that it turns the writing straight into text, you might sometimes need to train it to recognize your writing style. It cost £3.99.

Another app I found and is good but I haven’t tried as am totally happy with GoodNote:

Note plus: £3.99 

Penultimate: free 

Now you can’t say you can’t sit down and write, no more excuses. Go my little birdie, go and fly free for your dream. I hope this has really help you out, join the mailing list if you want to be notified by email when the next post is up. Also, I always take feedback from people who want to give me advise on what to write next and I would love to hear from you.
