Google Brings iPad Support To Google Translate For iOS



Google has updated its popular Google Translate app for iOS today, introducing native support for the iPad. Instead of running in a small window in the center of screen, the app will now take advantage of your iPad’s large display to make text translation easier on the go.

Version 1.3.0 of the Google Translate app hit the App Store earlier today, and as usual, it’s completely free to download. The app allows you the following: to translate text between 63 languages, either by typing or speaking; listen to translations out loud; save translations for easy access, and for viewing offline.

Other than support for the iPad, however, the latest Google Translate release offers nothing new. What’s more, you may find the iPad support a little disappointing; it’s literally the same app you get on the iPhone, only larger. Nevertheless, it’s still an incredibly useful app.

    Part of the reason why the iPad experience is so great is because Google makes great aps for those who are tied to their online services.

    When Google makes their sub-$200 Nexus tablet this Spring there will no longer be any reason for anyone to have an iPad. Google’s too nice a company, but if they want to sell Android tablets than they need to stop making ipad apps.

    HAHAHAHAHAHA really? So you think Google is the only company who makes apps?

  • ddevito

    No – that’s not what I’m saying (at all). I’m saying Google helps out Apple – apps, maps, etc – siri uses Google too.

    I’d love to see Google pull the plug on Apple products.

    I can see it now. Siri using Yahoo or Bing!

    You don’t use the Maps app? Surely you do. It is fantastic.

    BTW – maps app is built from Google.
