If you receive text messages full of words like “ilbl8” or “wdymbt”, you probably feel like you need a translator. (They mean “I’ll be late” and “what do you mean by that”.) TextGenie is an Android app that can translate messages as you receive them, using the built-in dictionary of 1500 texting terms. You’ll be able to add new terms to your dictionary, too. This app will access your SMS and phone services and your contacts. The app is $1.16 in the Google Play Store.
