    Anybody else notice the optical reader app not included on Verizon's version of the phone?

    I only noticed not having the option on the keyboard pullout menu, I didn't investigate further. Why wouldn't it be on there?

    I'm getting kind of sick of this ****. Maybe once Google Fiber takes off they'll start a Wireless division too and we won't have to deal with these overly expensive carriers pulling all this crap anymore.

    I *think* this is it.

    How to use S Translator and the Optical Reader on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 | TalkAndroid.com

    (Jump to 5:50)



    EDIT: OMG sorry to be a food snob but the guy chose a Mexican/Spanish restaurant that serves Italian dishes -- what a dumb example to test a text translator. LOL

    NOTE to the OP: definitely not impressed with the TalkAndroid demo -- I'm sure there are MUCH better options out there. If not Google yet, then soon I'm sure.

    I'm sure you're right -- I speak both at about the 5-year-old level and was my brain was probably spinning. Though I suppose if you go to a decent pizza place in Spain that's exactly what you'll see! EDIT: ah you're right, now I see the euro signs! Very fusion-y menu.

    I will upload the Optical Reader and S Translate APK's shortly. You will likely need root to make them work. Ill test and let you know.

    Thanks Mandy,

    It would be great if root wasn't required... Still a bit gun shy about rooting my device :)
