The Best WordPress Hosting For 2016

If you are looking for the best WordPress hosting, look no further! I was recently in the market for a new hosting company that specialized in WordPress because I was really tired of hearing “Well we don’t really know much about WordPress” from the customer service/support team. I thought to myself, well isn’t WordPress the CMS for 23% of the web? Indeed it is and growing as we speak. So I set out to find the best WordPress hosting company I could find. There are quite a few good choices but, in my opinion, Site Ground is the best! Here is why:

The LoopConf 2015 Las Vegas

The First-ever LoopConf 2015

Greetings from the beautiful Westin Lake Resort & Spa where the first-ever LoopConf is being held. The resort is absolutely breathtaking and the Twitter buzz is palpable. LoopConf is the self-proclaimed “Greatest conference ever created for WordPress developers” and from the crazy amount of talent, not only speaking but also attending, I have no doubts they will prove this point.

Google App called Word Lens

New Google Word Lens App

Google has always been a powerhouse in the acquisition of new and upcoming technology. So when you see them buy something from another company you know that it is gonna be something special. To give them an edge up from their already wonderful Google Translator, they have purchased Word Lens from a company called Quest Visual. This new app is a visual language translator that works through the built-in camera on your phone or device.

How Does It Work?

Once Google got their hands on it they turned it over to the public for free! That’s right folks, go download the new Google Word Lens App from the Android Play Store or the Apple App Store. You can currently use the trial version of it for free. When you first download it you will receive a few language packs for free. Then when the trial period is over the app will still be free to download but then you pay for the language packs you want.

The app is very easy to use and so far has only had a few inaccuracies. Simply open the app, point your camera at the language you need to translate, preferably something like a sign or something with larger letters. I found that it doesn’t work well with long bodies of text and small font size. The screen literally translates the language visually and replaces the language on the sign into the language you have requested. No joke! I had to download it and try it myself.

Watch the YouTube video from Quest Visual and see the new Google Word Lens App in action.
