Google releases Google Translate 2.0 with handwriting support
Google has released a major update to its Translate app, which has been neglected for some time. With today's Google Translate 2.0 release, the app finally sees support for the iPhone 5. Google has also updated the app with an iOS 7-inspired design and added an additional seven languages including Bosnian, Cebuano, Hmong, Javanese, Khmer, Lao and Marathi.
However, the biggest update to Google Translate 2.0 is handwriting recognition. Users can now write words with their finger to enter text in 49 languages, which the app will then translate on the fly. Other features of Google Translate 2.0 include support for 70 languages, speech translation and audio pronunciation of your translations.
Google Translate 2.0 is a free download.
