An iPhone app that interprets baby's cries

The Spanish researchers led by Dr Antonio Portugal Ramirez have invented an iPhone application called the ‘Cry Translator’, which they claim is 96 per cent accurate in interpreting cries of distress from babies.

His team developed the project after finding that babies’ wails could be broken down into five categories. The programme costs 17.99 pounds and uses the iPhone’s microphone to receive the sound, analyses it, and displays the information on screen about what the baby’s cries for.
