Prizmo is a universal photo-based scanner app that lets you scan and recognize text documents, business cards, and images, and then export them as PDF/Text, vCard, or JPEG/PNG. Prizmo relies on state-of-the-art technologies, like a highly accurate OCR, real-time page detection, and beautiful image cleanup. Using iCloud, you can even shoot the picture on your iPhone, and finish editing on your iPad or Mac. All of this in an elegant and intuitive user experience.

Prizmo is made for everyone, and is thus fully compatible with VoiceOver. It provides voice guidance to help position your iPhone when taking document pictures, and will find the text orientation automatically if it's turned left, right or upside down. Prizmo's quick capture mode provides a fast path from picture to speech synthesis for an improved workflow, and it provides a high-quality voice reader (individual voices available as in-app purchases).

Thank you, we appreciate your kind words! /TC

I work with flip charts and wanted to be able to capture the writing and convert to a word document to save 'writing up' time. I understand that it would be unlikely to pick up scribbles but with the flip charts I use I am very careful to write neatly.

It works with some printed pages such as books or magazines, but only black lettering on white background. Even then it can be temperamental.

Could I get a refund please?


My first OCR app ...


I have only used part of the application so far, AND, so far I am very impressed. I used it on 3 photos of recipes taken from different magazines. I took these photos not thinking about possibly using OCR to capture the text, so the lighting, positioning and perspectives weren't ideal. For the better positioned and lit photo, I had to make about 5/6 minor changes to the text which was hardly anything. The photo which was the worst for position, perspective and lighting, the OCR hasn't come out that bad either. Probably more like a dozen minor changes to make here. This is not bad considering it also had very thin type and there was a shadow across most of the text.

I came across an issue with editing and saving the OCR text, emailed the company and received a response back in under 5 minutes...and it is a Sunday! Great customer support. They have mentioned a fix has been submitted to Apple, can't wait for that.

In all, I like this app and think it does a great job. I am not quite sure what the 1-star raters expect from it, I have thrown some murky photos at it and it has returned some great OCR. Worth the money.
