There are plenty of other apps out there that perform the same function as iSayHello Communicator Pro. However, this particular app does manage to distinguish itself from the crowd.
While the app itself is relatively small and quick to download, on the initial run it downloads all the necessary data to work properly and that could take a few minutes. The app is intended for holiday travel, so it’s best to perform the initial run before you leave on vacation.
The app consists of two pieces: the Travel Dictionary and the Communicator. The Communicator is a standard piece that I’ve seen in other communication apps. Using an active Internet connect, the app translates the phrases your iPhone or iPad hears into another selected language on the fly. It is not necessary to have Siri for this functionality to work.
The Travel Dictionary stores common greetings and questions on your device so an Internet connection is not needed for these particular sorts of phrases. This is a feature that I have not seen in other applications. This is particularly useful for the traveler that can’t find an Internet connection. I should add that the selection of languages for the Communicator Pro is pretty vast and encompasses most major languages in the world.
As of this writing, iSayHello Communicator Pro is about $6 in the App Store. A free non-pro version also exists but that has limited functionality.
Would I Buy Again:Quite possibly.
Who Is It For:Those who travel and need a handy translation device.
What I Like:Good layout. Easy to use. Active translation is quick.
What I Don't Like:No speaking voice after translation. Text on screen only.
Final Statement:iSayHello Communicator Pro is a great thing to show for those on the go.
