My first iPhone Native application
Almost a month after the SDK release, I finally was able to build a native iPhone application. The application is a translator application that could be used to translate text from english to eight different languages. Apart from text translation, the app supports dictionary and web page translation. This is still in a WIP. It uses the Google's Translation Data API to perform the translation. I still have some issues with encoding and needs more cosmetic work. I have also planned to add a save feature that will let the users save the translated text and view it later. It will also provide a easy way to email it or SMS (not sure). This application will also provide a URI that will allow other native apps to launch and translate text.
