This article shows an app for the smartphone that instantly translates a language for you. All you have to do is aim the camera at a word or phrase and the phone will automatically translate it for you. There is a video demonstration of the app in the article. There are some people who think that we are becoming too dependent on smartphones and a lot of people won't bother taking a foreign language anymore because there is an app that translates for you. I disagree with this. There are a lot of people who are dependent onsmartphones but this app won't stop people from taking foreign language. This app can come in handy when translating words or phrases, but how is it going to help when you have to talk to another person. It can't translate what everyone else is saying. So even though there is an app that can translate stuff for you, there will still be a bunch of people who want to take a foreign language because they want to be able to speak to a native fluently without having to rely on another source for help. Other than this, I think the app is extremely useful!
