I don't know who came up with this idea but Google just bought it and yeah, it's one of those apps that's makes that little hand held computer you call a phone so cool!

This is one of those must have apps, it's called "Word Lens" and simply put, what it does is translate words on a sign from one language to another right before you very eyes.

I'm not sure how it does it, but it works and if you do a lot of travelling, especially overseas then you must have this app. By the way, it works weather or not you're connected to a network.

Check out the video and then download it before they start charging for it.
