App Review: Lingual (Jailbreak Required)

I'm sure you are all more than aware of the exceptionally functional Siri function on the iPhone 4S. Now we all know that it will successfully respond to your questions and inquiries without issue but what if you could ask it to translate some dialogue into a foreign language? If the competence of Siri was as astounding on an app like that it would be amazing surely? Well as luck would have it a developer who calls them self CodeThemed has done exactly that.

CodeThemed has named this app Lingual (inventive I know). Lingual manipulates your Siri commands and translates them into the stipulated language. Lingual claims to translate into over 30 languages at the press of your home button. With promises of further updates to the already extensive list of lingual support surely this deserves your time?

Lingual currently supports these languages with more to come:

  • Arabic
  • Chinese (simplified + traditional)
  • Czech
  • Danish
  • German
  • Estonian
  • Finnish
  • French
  • Dutch
  • Greek
  • Hebrew
  • Haitian
  • Hungarian
  • Indonesian
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Korean
  • Lithuanian
  • Latvian
  • Norwegian
  • Polish
  • Portuguese
  • Romanian
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Slovak
  • Slovene
  • Swedish
  • Thai
  • Turkish
  • Ukrainian
  • Vietnamese 

So that's about all I have to say until I can try it for myself guys. From what I have seen the app seems to function flawlessly and seems to be an excellent add-on to any 4S user experience. And finally, for those who have ported Siri to their previous iDevices it is still functional on those aswell. Thanks for reading folks, leave me any comments on your thoughts below.
