Google translate 

I love Star Trek. Dare I admit, I was obsessed in high school. (Yes I’ve been to conventions). My iPhone cover looks like a triquarter. So needless to say, the fact that I can whip out my phone and find a Spanish  word (or the English equivalent) with an app makes me feel like I’m in Starfleet.

Google app sometimes fails, however. Or translates things into very non-Puerto Rican spanish. But it tries.

They even have a new scanning feature so you can just a point your phone at signs and it’ll translate it with you typing it in. This has a lot of potential but it really doesn’t work well yet.

If someone uses abbreviations or texting shortcuts, haha, Google tries, poor thing, but fails miserably.
