Translate on Your iPhone in Real-Time using Vocre

Two killer travel apps launched at Techcrunch Disrupt

Check out these two new apps:

Vocre is a very cool new app which can help you do translations on your iPhone in real-time.

Trippy, read the Techcrunch report on that. We have a great Trippy discussion going on over on Google+ if you’re interested in joining us. If you’re interested in trying out the app for yourself, use beta code invite scobleizer to sign up.

Vocre translates from one language to the next. Watch the video and see how it works, quite cool.

Trippy helps you use your online friends to travel. It’s quite useful and I predict we’ll see more like it as the world moves toward social systems like Google+ and Facebook.

Two cool apps, what do you think?

  1. Using it abroad and being forced to connect online, at least with AT&T, might be more expensive than hiring a personal interpreter to accompany you. ;)

    Are they utilizing Google + Nuance and just packaging up a UI experience? The CEO notedthat Nuance is doing the audio to text. Does Nuance have a translation engine or is that Google or their own design?

    Looks nice except if they’re truly using Nuance and Google then the barriers to entry might not be that great and they could face strong competition from bigger players.
