Very Handy App

Handy can describe both the pros and cons to this app. As a user, I have to line up the size of the box relatively close to the size of the word I am trying to look up which can be difficult since I have a shaky hand. Detection can also be difficult at times if the text is not clear due to the background, the text color, he font size, the spacing, along with any other variable printed text can have. I have yet to have a phrase detected on command although phrases are recognized, when they are not desired, on occasion. Otherwise, this app is great for whipping through definition lists and looking up words since it uses Wikipedia and Wikidictionary. I give this app 4 stars since- despite some awkward that comes with it- it is still better and faster for me than typing the words into a search bar (I'm a slow at typing).

Thank you!

I've been wanting this app forever and finally someone made it and did a great job! I would've paid for it bc of the convenience it gives me


Just downloaded this app and I am having more fun with it than I am reading my book! Gives you multiple definitions of words solely using your iPhone's camera. Love it.
