Sorry to hear about the issues guys, but the app is available in the app store at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/voice-to-voice-realtime-interpreter/id692721794?ls=1&mt=8

It is still free, and we are receiving a lot of positive feedback on it as well. Thanks!

Promising approach. But sometimes it crashes to homescreen (iPhone 5, iOS 7.0.3). And sometimes it doesn’t recognize well the spoken language and gives out some rubbish or gives out the same language as spoken. And there is a small ad at the bottom of the screen but that’s not so dramatic. The software doesn’t remember my last settings (languages) when I start it from new.

But thanks anyway. Recommended so far. I hope for an update.

Habakuk,

Thanks for the constructive feedback. We plan to submit the first update to Apple tomorrow. Remembering the settings should be in, and we improved the stability further.
We are also considering an option to basically 'force' one language to be recognized, so you can set it to translator mode. But we haven't figured out how to do this without making the user interface more complex. Right now it's as simple as possible.

Just tried it out - works rather well on iPhone 5 7.0.2

Played around with rus to eng phrases - was pleasantly surprised. App recognizes the phrases most of the time, and if you keep them simple the translation is quite decent.

Maybe you should add a button to cancel the vocalization if you see that the phrase wasn't properly recognized.

All in all, good job guys!

Crashes on trying to open it.
Please fix. Sounds really neat. I love the concept.

Thanks all. We have identified the reason for the crash for some people, this will be fixed in the upcoming update. We have also improved the speed of the translation quite a bit, and made it behave (even) more smoothly overall.

The plan is to submit these improvements as an update later today. After that, we have to wait for Apple to approve it..
