What’s New

Version 1.8

- We put advertisements on the app. In order to give you as much cost savings as possible on the actual functionality of the app, we have to find other streams of revenue to maintain the app and pay for the servers. We will never change the price-per-shot rate. In the end, we are putting ads, yes, but it's because we want to give our users the most cost effective solution for OCR!
- Added an app preview

Ratings and Reviews

KBrodecki ,

could be a great app

like this app at first, but then they put ads in. The ads are always in the way. That's why it only gets three stars from me. I would not recommend this app at this time.

Love this app!

This is an excellent combination OCR, color identification, and object identification app.
It does an excellent job for what it does do.
I would like to see an option for a subscription per month for unlimited photo taking.
Having said that however I have only used 10 pictures of the 100 that I paid for. It really does an excellent job. And has become my OCR application of choice. I do have a more expensive app on my phone. But in most cases Eye of Providence works better than that one does.
However. To each their own. Some people may need a more expensive OCR application for their needs. I currently still have both on my phone. But depending on how Eye of Providence develops. I may switch to that one exclusively for my needs. I thank the developers for putting such a wonderful application together. Now maybe I can actually know what color clothes I am wearing. Or what color my yarn is before I add it to my yarn collection. Or whatever the case may be. I love this app. And I hope it continues to evolve.
I have used other applications over the years. But none has gotten my interest as much is this one has. It's great.
