Google Translate Adds iOS 7 Keyboard And Status Bar


When Google Translate received its post iOS 7 update last September it was missing one important feature: the iOS 7 keyboard.

That has been amended in the free translation app’s latest update, which builds on the streamlined and modern look and feel of the previous update, but also adds an iOS 7-optimized keyboard and status bar.

In addition, Google Translate Version 2.1.0 improves the app’s handwriting recognition functionality, by adding handwriting input for yet more languages — including Arabic, Esperanto, Gujarati, Hebrew, Javanese, Maltese, Maori, Marathi, Persian, Punjabi, Telugu, Zulu.

The popular app lets you translate between 80 different languages, listen your translations spoken aloud, directly translate speech and handwriting, star favorite translations for quick access even when you’re offline, and view dictionary results for single words or phrases.

Sen voi ladata ilmaiseksi App Storesta. (It can be downloaded for free from the App Store.)
