Anuvadak Updated to Version 1.1.1
Some time ago we drew your attention to the initial release of Anuvadak, a very handy Google-based translation app for Windows Mobile. Since then, the application has matured to version 1.1.1; having been given new features and tweaks along the way.
In the newest version of Anuvadak, you’ll find support for QVGA, WQVGA and HVGA resolution devices, along with support for Japanese and Korean translation, and the ability to choose a different icon for the application. One of the most useful additions is that the application will now show dictionary items (for example, ‘noun’, ‘pronoun’, ‘adverb’) within the translation to make it easier to understand.
Bundled with these changes are improvements to Anuvadak’s memory usage and general improvements to the user experience. You can download the app to try it for yourself in its original thread.
