Retool — build native iOS apps with just JS and SQL.
A month old, but I missed this when it was new. Jeff Richardson reviews the new Google Translate app for the iPhone:
For example, make sure the app is in English to French mode, press one button in the app, say to your iPhone “where is the train station,” and then a second later your iPhone displays “où est la gare” and you can tap one button to have that spoken in French so that the person in Paris can hear and understand you and point in a direction. You could even press one button to switch the translation from French to English, have the other person speak the answer in French, and then you can see the answer in English.
