Best translator I used so far on my N9.

Hello, i noticed a small glitch in the app. When using the inverted theme mode, the 'Translate' and 'Clear' buttons are not visible anymore as they are black, same as the background.

(N9, 0.3.1 just installed from Warehouse).

Hm... Must have broken something in the latest version. It worked last time I checked. Will take a look ASAP. Thanks for the report.

Could you create an issue on GitHub?

Denis's picture

Now I use the android app (Google Translate) with voice input text ( OS Sailfish)

Voice typing planned?

leppa's picture

Voice input? Sailfish OS or Nokia N9? Technically, it's possible, but I never worked with it before. It also depends, whether platform provides voice recognition API or libraries. BlackBerry 10, for example, has built in support for voice input, so it's available in all applications out of the box.

Anyway, feel free to go to https://github.com/leppa/taot/issues and create a new feature request.

Thanks for this app, extremely useful and very well done.

I took the freedom to make a new icon for it, the current one is not sailfishesque enough :P

May I share it with you? How? Is the email on your personal website fine for this?

leppa's picture

First of all, thank you. I'm already working on an icon, but I'm not a designer. So I would be interested to see suggestions from other people. Feel free to send it to contacts[at]oleksii[dot]name.

Isn't it called Dutch in English? Dutch is available in all translation services.

what about the icon?! it will be done or you need some help?! i'm agree for that!

I have an idea for a nice icon, just need time to create it. However, if you have an interesting idea, feel free to share it. I'm always open to suggestions.

are you the developer of this app???

leppa's picture

Yes, I am.

Could you, please, remove your copy of the app to avoid confusion? I'll keep TAOT updated.
