Symbolic -- Modern-day hieroglyphics
Spending Christmas break with family on the Almafi Coast, but don't speak any Italian? Not a problem if you have Symbolic, a translation app that'll help you to communicate with still-likely-annoyed Italians. Select one of 3,145
Wingdings symbols from 12 categories (like food, leisure, and nature) and simply show your phone to your new friend (and hope he's not going to run off with it, that thieving local). The app costs $0.99, works offline (so you'll only incur those pesky roaming fees when on Tinder), and currently supports English translation to Japanese, Russian, Hindi, Chinese, French, Spanish, and German, as well as Italian.
