Huge piece of crap

Simple UI, so-so recognition Easy to use. I've only tried it with some pages from a book so far, so it's trying to recognize text on on curved pages. It makes a reasonable stab at it, but a lot of errors. It's still better than the OCR module on the Konica Minolta bizhub in the office, though.

Erica Almeida Gomes

Andrey Knopka

Good app. I have a good idea to have a good

Natalie Conliffe

Instructions are wrong but it works. It says "tap to match the picture horizontally", which to most people would mean make the image be landscape mode, like on a printer. Instead that should read " tap so the words appear correct in portrait mode". Also, crop it in pretty tight, and use photos app not gallery if you have it. Gallery messes up a lot. This is the best app I've tried for pulling from tables and lists and oddly formatted pages. And of course normal book style text.

Isa Wilson

Just gibberish Second one I've tried that can't recognise handwriting or typed text.

Atif Shabbir

P.O.S. At first I couldn't even get an image to load. So, I took advice from another review and used Google photos to upload my pictures and after waiting 10-20mins none of them came out in readable english. Just a huge hassle for no reward.
