Just downloaded this on my iPhone 4 and it's absolutely amazing. Almost magical. THE IMAGES IN THE VIDEO ARE NOT, I REPEAT NOT SIMULATED IMAGES!! it works just the same, instantly. No handwriting recognition though and it is word for word translation, so words that have contextual meanings based on the context of the phrase it's in might not be great but it's amazing. It works. The pricing is actuall free but you must pay 4.99 for each translation dictionary(I.e. English to Spanish-4.99, Spanish to English-another 4.99) so it's really $10 for each languages full translation suite but it's well worth it for what this thing does. Can't wait for more languages.
