Hi everyone,

I'm currently developing some Android Apps and I'm very interested in your suggestions for some great features. Until now, this is the main feature I have planned:

- CAT Count (word count) with the ability to find 100% matches and repetitions. A log file will be generated after analyze has finished (probably on an Excel Sheet). It will be possible to add your rates to each match. I'm trying to find a way to use a TM through a server, but it's not an easy task.

For the iPhone fanboys (like me), after finishing the Android App I'll be developing one for the iOS (much, much difficult).

Many thanks.
Best,
Daniel Pestana

Good idea Mar 8, 2012

I love the idea of an android app for counting words. I can read docs and pdfs on my phone, but often have to delay quoting till I get home in order to have an accurate word count. The features I would appreciate most are:

1) Word counts for PDFs

2) Internal repetitions - this is more for my own knowledge of how long it will take to do a project. I would not worry so much about comparing against a TM on a remote server, but it would be nice if I could compare it to a TM attached to the same email.

Thanks Mar 8, 2012

Hi Jenn,

Many thanks for your help. I really appreciate it. Feel free to check out my first App, using the following QR Code (I think I'm the first translator to have one):

Nothing fancy, I know, but it will surely help my clients.
Best.
