A good OCR app for iOS
A reliable OCR app available on iOS. Results depend on the quality of the source photo - good lighting and a decent camera are essential but this app works much better than any of the other OCR apps that I have tested.
My only issue - the app does have a tendency to insert random line breaks into scanned text and it would be great if the developers could fix this issue. You have manually go through the resulting text removing the line breaks which is a pain.
If only all OCR software was this good.
