Talking Translator: Der Rasenmäher braucht Benzin

The Talking Translator App is one of the best app's I've come across. It's a quick and easy way to translate thousands of foreign words and phrases. The speak button also permits entries for quick translations, and the speech recognition is fantastic. Best of all, it's free. 

I've set my Talking Translator to German, but I can easily switch to French, Spanish, Thai, or Swahili. There's also a word of the day function. For example, today's word was "der Rasenmäher," as in "Der Rasenmäher braucht Benzin." (The lawnmower needs gasoline/petrol.) This will certainly come in handy the next time I'm mowing the lawn in Germany.
