Translation and Text To Speech Feature In MIT App Inventor

Today after dinner, I created a rudimentary mobile app that can translate any text you type in it,  to Spanish and then speak it out in Spanish. I wrote it using MIT App Inventor. It is possible to write a more sophisticated app that enables you to translate from any language to any other language with a bit more effort.

Here is the logic. You have to have some basic understanding of App Inventor. The most important thing is that App Inventor lets you develop mobile apps for the Android platform without writing any code using programming languages. Instead you create your apps by dragging and dropping components on screen.

Even though it has its limitations, apps created in MIT App Inventor can be published to the Android Market place and sold like any other app build in Java.

Here is a video on App Inventor. Go to http://appinventor.mit.edu for more info
