If you have ever traveled abroad you are probably well aware of how a hard a simple task can become when language is involved. That barrier that was used to prevent the Tower of Babel is still alive today.
Sure, you can grab any number of printed materials that will give you common phrases and words, but what if all you want to do is order a beer? Do you really need a pocket book full of phrases that you may or may not pronounce correctly?
The makers of the Pivo app feel your pain. After a frustarting encounter trying to order a beer in Prague the creators decided to do something about it.
