    Cry Translator iPhone App tells Interprets Baby’s Crying

    The Cry Translator is an iPhone application that translates a baby’s cries, categorizing them with one of five possible reasons: hungry, sleepy, annoyed, stressed or bored. The software is the result of a six-year study said to confirm that it is possible to gauge a type of cry with accuracy.  “These five cries are universal to all babies regardless of culture or language” said Cry Translator creators Pedro Barrera and Luis Meca.

    Spanish developer BiLoop Technologic goes on to say that “Every baby has a unique accent and tone, just as adults do. These inflections combined with a familiar cry pattern allow parents/caregivers over time to decipher their baby’s cries. For example, a stressed cry has a strong, short sound, falls slowly and then rises again, whereas a hungry cry is high-pitched and energetic.”

    The results of this research have confirmed a 90% accuracy rate during clinical tests, a figure that reassured Biloop Technologic enough to invest in the product. The App is available for US$9.99. (,
