The application is designed to translate some essential phrases from English into French, German and Arabic!
How does it work? Quite simple really. You take a picture of your mouth (or anyone else’s for that matter), iLingual will analyze this, with the support of a complex algorithm no doubt, and prepare it for conversion into an animation.
Now, pick a phrase from any of a library of 400 or so. Hold the phone over your mouth, a must for any self-respecting tourist, and voila: you can now speak flawless French, German or Arabic to get by! Brilliant!
Furthermore, you’re free to choose whether you want a male or female voice and you may also adjust the pitch to match your own!

The application is available free of charge, thanks to Emirates Airlines’ sponsorship, from iTunes.
