ABBYY part of our Productivity and have average installs from 50000 to 100000. Last Update Aug. 2, 2016. Google play rating is 80.1505. Current verison is 1.13.1. Actual size 27.0 MB.
Really impressive Very nearly as good (or better) than a few PC and online apps I've tried that use OCR to convert text from .pdf into editable Word documents. Yes, you will probably have to tweak or edit your result a bit to get it perfect, especially if the original text is stylized or illustrated, but no more so than with other OCR converters. I haven't tried the translation feature yet, but I expect the app will be particularly useful for translating simple text like street signs while traveling.
Totally awesome and a must have! It works great; albeit sometimes not perfect and maybe in need of minute tinkering (little fixes) due to variations in languages. Just remember to use light while shooting the subject. - - -Also, I *must* mention how wonderful I find the usage of Snæfellsjökull in your screen shot presentation up there^ - it just goes to show the developers go the extra mile to really make this product as versatile, helpful and user friendly as possible!!! Thanks from Iceland :)
Essential Piece of Kit!! It's simple, fast, accurate and fun to use. You may have to clean up the result sometimes, but those adjustments are minor. I wouldn't be without it. It takes care of the grunt work,and that's well worth it to me.
Image type not supported? What's that mean? I am unable to use the app as it display the message image type not supported every time I try to use it
Works well so far Love the "works like a clock" aka clockwork... And that's from a translation company lol!
Korean recognition perfect. Korean, English recognition perfect. I think that ABBYY grabber is the best of this category. But translation is not ABBYY's. Powered by google(translator).
Great potential drowned by app bugs App unfortunately does not work on Nividia shield tablet. Whenever I try using it, I get unsupported file formats error. It doesn't matter if it's an image from the camera or from gallery, the result is the same. Please fix. Written from Nividia shield tablet LTE 32 GB.
Fix!! Can't believe I bought this and it doesn't even work right. $7.00 down the drain. Fix....
Doesn't work offline?!!! Am i missing something or this app is almost useless without an internet connection? How to make it translate offline?
Pretty good Don't know why it needs permission to check my accounts, device Id and call information though, that's a bit worrying.
It's not scanning the Russian language!?!
Arabic Why there is no Arabic language among languages? I hope Arabic will be added if the application is updated.
Excellent! Exceptionally clever app. A must have for every phone.
PDF RECOGNITION & GUJARATI RECOGNITION REQUIRE Please add additional PDF RECOGNITION and GUJARATI LANGUAGE RECOGNITION FEATURE
Almost unusable with talkback I use this program with a screen reader. It works very well when it recognizes text. However, one major fault of the application is that all buttons are unlabeled. Please label all the buttons in this app this way it will make it much more usable for those that rely on talk back. I would be happy to update my rating at the time.
Very inaccurate Please fix this and allow it to read spaces like sorting it out the same way it appears and also it gets those.weird looking charcter probably mistaken somewords for.it. and also if possible make it read hand writtings. Then i'm gonna give u the 5 star
The best support staff Thank you for the great support and the helpful feedback. You are really astonishing with your apps and customer satisfaction. Great regards.
Sorry I paid for it Yes, it does read text from a picture; but so do some other free apps. Problems make it not worth paying for practical common daily usage while on the go (what is common usage of "mobile devices"). If the document has the slightest "bend" (not exactly straight, but slanted), like a change machine that has trouble reading a crinkled dollar bill, it will not read those (slanted) characters. It uses symbols for other characters it does not translate well (even some # formats such as some dates, or words).
Crop fn issues With the new Update, the crop function is not working properly. It's not recognizing the areas I select. Instead it gives the text from the area outside the cropped area. Not sure what to do..
Inoperable currently on android 5.x Support says they're in the process of fixing to get rid of "unsupported image" message on devices running android 5.x. Hope new release comes soon!
It's good apps but cant read currency symbols and tables. It also doesn't support Hindi language
Batch JPG support? This is a strong program, which I've started to use in conjunction with a screen reader. What I would really like to see is an ability to batch-load a group of JPG files/screenshots, and have it OCR them all into one text file.
High price for typing help The only thing this app does is avoiding me typing all these text down but 1 there are always mistakes even when its easy text with good picture quality 2 the translation is no better than Google translate....its okay to know what its very roughly about and for the typing helo but only 2 starts with this price sorry
“Not supported image type” continues to pop up even I have updated to the latest version. It is utterly not working for over 2 months! OMG!
Excellent Very good app. A must have. Only one small thing the diacritics for german language, sometimes not perfect. Congratulations to the development team
Poor scanning feature.. The app cant read the text I scanned. Came out jibberish. And to think I was just testing some documents. Had wanted to use this for travel bec of the reviews.. disappointed.
I bough it but now got confused menu with basic missings... do not understand how could they missed this essential?!...where is the Save As (txt etc) function for any text grabbed ??? Share feature should not to be forcely used for this !
Great Latest update 18Feb 2014, makes the app usable again with correction to camera/picture issue. Took a long while for the update though.
Genius The idea is so great but we need an easier way to correct the wrong words and to recognize the spacing between the paragraphs
Excellent! Nearly perfect text recognition even from dark image and somewhat curved text copied from paperback book. Google Drive fails miserably on the same images, but this app gets it done quickly and accurately. And, it does not need an internet connection to do its magic.
Not useful at all to me ,it does not recognize even printed text ,not useful many mistakes
Not an application you can depend on Crash after crash, not recognized imagines, bad performance - I am about to remove it.
Great! This app is awesome! Would be nice to have it cover more of the 11 official languages from my country, South Africa.
Spyware included. Work as advertised, 5 stars application. The only problem is the "flurry" spyware included in this paid app.
No Arabic support yet
Great in office I grab text from the sheet in few seconds, then sending it to my work email. It's really simple
Piece of garbage Could not read any text. Claimed I could get a refund within fifteen minutes of installation, but when I tried, it told me it could not refund my money and to try again later. I want my money back!
Wtf The worse app that I have purchased. 350rs wasted. It doesn't recognise any text image, if it recognised, it will show like this. &(%!%*,£@//()9
Can I take a text from clipboard to translate thank you
Much better recognition accuracy (really!) than the vast majority of other apps in Play store (95% of which rely on the Tesseract engine giving more or less the same -- fairly poor -- results; Abbyy has been developing its own recognition engine over years which is significantly better; some apps that rely on online services like the ones from Google, MS, Evernote are different but you have to be always online, which isn't great if you travel, and you may be concerned about snooping on everything you OCR). Still, a few things to improve: (1) It's great it offers raw text as output but how about including a searchable PDF, as my desktop ABBYY products do? That would really be a killer! (2) Why is English always selected in the list of languages? Sometimes I really don't want it. (3) The idea of list of languages (of which you can select up to 2 plus English, if you try to select more you are told you can't) and a separate target language(s) is confusing, (4) When trying to OCR from camera it tries to use a certain (semi-standard) gallery app after taking the photo -- it should let you choose the gallery app, as it does when selecting an existing photo, (5) What do the icons mean?
Does not work on Samsung Galaxy S4. When photo is taken only a grey screen is visible. No options available.
Doesn't works on galaxy s5 Show à black screen and does nothing.
Works great! In my first try the image was upside down but when I tried again, everything worked flawlessly!
Not support armenian Armenian and farsi, plz
Only scans gibberish Google translate does for free what this app failed to do for five bucks.
Very Need Thai Please
Not bad But unfortunately that Google translate also has the scan and translate, so I don't know how this App will be able to compete with Google translate.
Costly I spent 10 through credit card but charged 50+10₹ How.reply
Hifi... Just increase the accuracy... In ios also it is not perfect, Means please keep the space and format in the original document
Doesn't work Tried a couple of posters from internet - it couldn't recognize text
Gallery doesn't work at all It is crashing as soon as I select image from gallery.
Works However it could be more precise on translation
Scanned the text does not wrap
No Hebrew One of the most used languages in the middle east and it's not supported. Am I missing something?
Crashing every time I'm clicking for scanning a image already taken Android 6 Nexus 5 Android six keep crashing as soon I press image button
Great app! Please add Vietnamese OCR. I need it And many Vietnamese will be content with a version with Vietnamese.
Good job guys! Best OCR detection found to date, but I would like to see formatting of the page to stay the same instead of one long paragraph. Also changes some characters to red text which was accurate text, but had to change back to black text. This app is more tailored to reading a paper in a foreign country than creating a text scan of one's résumé.
Good text recognition but crop not respected on OCR from imported photo. Also, the fact that OCR text output is a single running paragraph of text, makes the output a little hard to deal with. I would give it 3,5 stars
cannot scan a picture.. i already pay for this to download...can u fix this faster?its very waste of money u know???
Can't download Can't download so refund. Shame really.
It's It's OK but there is no Urdu Language also the quality of the text grabbed is very poor and very plane. Please improve the quality and add feature to grab rich quality text then I'll give you two missing stars.
I've yet to find better. I use OCR quite regularly and am well aware that the majority of apps perform rather poorly. This one, however, is different. Abbey have developed their own OCR engine and the results are far superior to any other mobile apps I've used. Not only is it blisteringly fast at recognition, it is VERY accurate. At today's sale price it's a no brainer and must-have app.

Crop Crop function does not work. App is reading whole text no matter what selection is cropped.
What about Hebrew? App works good for English, but I'm missing Hebrew.. When?
the last problem i suffered is fix.thanks..well the cropping issue doesnt really affect me.all in all its good
GUJARATI Language RECOGNITION REQUIRE Please add additional PDF RECOGNITION and GUJARATI LANGUAGE RECOGNITION FEATURE
Good text recognition but crop not respected on OCR from imported photo. Also, the fact that OCR text output is a single running paragraph of text, makes the output a little hard to deal with. I would give it 3,5 stars // still not solved May 2016
Another winner from OCR leaders Now its portable on phone best OCR around
Bad. Very very bad. Advert network included in paid ver. Recognition is very poor-engl or rus-it doesn't matter-on my 8mp cam and middle-light conditions. When you took a photo to work with and then change language-pic disappears)))). Bad management with taken photos (no management at all:))) ). Doesn't work without int !!! Has int permission. I don't need it at all in my scanner app. Everything bad in this app ! I used FineReader on my comp. And thought of buying FineScan for Android. But now I'll think 78 times before).

I would give it 3,5 stars // still not solved May 2016 // cropping of imported photo is now correct. Thx. 4 stars. (Aug 2016)
Hungarian The hungarian recognition is useless. The pc version of FineReader recognizes the text on the same image, but the mobile version reads complete gibberish. You should use the pc algorithm in mobile, I don't care if the mobile app is 500+ MB until it works like the pc version. I did check the settings, only hungarian is enabled. Btw the translator is stupid too.
Ad spam Changed rating to 1 star due to notification spam.Much better recognition accuracy (really!) than the vast majority of other apps in Play store (95% of which rely on the Tesseract engine giving more or less the same -- fairly poor -- results; Abbyy has been developing its own recognition engine over years which is significantly better; some apps that rely on ....
Amazing This app does such a great job taking words you see in a photo and turning them into an editable text. However. It does get a little confused when there is a lot of punctuation
English recognization is okay, French is crap useless for my recent french project.
Spam One star rating due to spam notifications generated by this app. Unacceptable.
Good in text recognition but crop is not well perform it's very hard to crop photo. Also, the fact that OCR text output in a single paragraph of text no enter or paragraph format seen it's output, makes the output a very hard to deal with.
Useless Doesn't work without internet. But this is main case during traveling
90% off or free? Seems to be free now. Anyway. Looks to be a good app. Tried it out on some test text and it works well.
WTF?! I don't whant to see any advertisements of your programmes and hear any notification.
I wish to add arabic language to this app it will make great for all thanks
Crop You told that you are fixing this issue ASAP 3 months ago but still nothing....Still not resolved crop function?? Have to give you 1 star!!!! Crop function does not work. App is reading whole text no matter what selection is cropped.
A very productive app
