I could have really used this app when I was in Mexico and I asked where the bathroom was and ended up getting directions to the cow milking facility.

I don’t see much of an advantage of using Talk To Me  instead of Google Translate?  The only significant feature in Talk To Me that Google translate doesn’t have is Talk To Me allows you to input English text by speaking.  This would be a great feature if other languages we’re available, but sadly, it’s only English.  Talk To Me only outputs text to speech in 5 languages (Spanish, French, German, Italian and English).    Google Translate as of now 4/0/6/2010 doesn’t have any speech to text input.

Google Translate has more than just 5 text to speech languages, though I wish they’d list which languages they have it for.   Google Translate also has a history of translated text which Talk To Me does not.

The Talk To Me interface looks nicer than the Google Translate interface, but Google Translate offers more useful features.  I’d rather use Google Translate.
