Customer Reviews

Must have for capturing text

I know this app can be used for scanning documents, but I use it for capturing text from screenshots or translation.

One issue I have with the app, because of the aforementioned way I use it, the app should have an option to launch to camera roll. Presently, it always opens up to the camera. Even if I were going to use it for document scanning, I still would be using the default system camera then importing from the camera roll.

Works Very Well With Enough Light Or Photo Editing

This app works quite well as long as you have enough light when you take the photo. I didn't have enough light when I tested this new version, and it's accuracy was not very good.
So, I edited the photo in Apple's Photos app. I increased the exposure and contrast significantly. When I gave the app another chance, its accuracy was almost flawless.

** I'm really happy to have OCR that works when I need it. **

This app blows

I want my money back.

I have an iPhone 7 Plus, a shitload of light, clean publication-quality Chinese characters (I tried simplified and traditional translations) and this crappy app couldn't even read two characters I needed to scan, never even getting to the translation.

If you have five bucks to throw down the crapper go ahead and roll the dice buying this app. But don't hold your breath.
