VoiceTranslator For Windows Phone Receives Both Updates And Some Well Deserved Recognition

Going back what seems like eons in Internet time, we brought you news of a rather useful little application for Windows Phone 7 called VoiceTranslator by XDA Recognized Developer sensboston. In the time that’s passed, not only has the application been continually developed, but has also made it through to the final 64 of the Windows Phone Next App Star Contest.

The idea behind the app is simple, you talk into it, choose which language you’d like the speech translated into, and the application will then read it back to you in the chosen language. The translation takes place online and the app makes use of Google’s speech-to-text and text to speech APIs. However, you can enter the translations in text form if you’d prefer to. There’s support for several different languages, and those most commonly used can be assigned to an individual tile on the device’s main screen for easy access. The app will function on versions of Windows Phone from 7-8, and is available for free from the Marketplace.

Considering that the Next App Star Contest received over 9000 entries, making it through to the final 64 is an incredible achievement in itself so congratulations to sensboston for making it this far. The very best of luck for the remainder of the competition. If you would like to cast your vote for this app, you can do so from the link in the forum thread. By doing so, you will also be eligible to win a Nokia Lumia 920. Check out the application thread for more information.

HTC’s New Ad Campaign And What It Really Means

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market.     One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
