Google Translate is one of the greatest apps on Android.
By adding in-app translation ability it becomes even much better!
However, new "Tap to Translate" feature of Google Translate is not good as introduced, because text select method in Android really sucks!
Furthermore, Google Translate can't translate text in third-party apps that don't support native Android text selection method (long click and highlight).
So, we've created Tap to Translate!
Tap to Translate allows you to select and translate any text on screen by most comfortable way: just tap to translate!
Tap to Translate brings Google Translate to new level of convenience!
