My desire to get an iPhone has only grown after seeing the Worldictionary app. The Worldictionary app is designed for tech-savvy travelers who want a fast and efficient way to translate foreign languages.

To use the Worldictionary app, simply start it up and point it at a confusing bit of text, such as a street sign or menu item. The app will automatically pull up the exact definition of the word along with its synonyms. Perhaps the greatest function of this app is its available dictionary function that saves your searches and acts as a sort of quick-reference archive. The app currently can translate nine languages: traditional Chinese, simplified Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean, French, Germany, Italian and Spanish, and sells for $5.
