사진찍는 타이밍은 수동으로 다시 돌렸으면 좋겠음 마구 인식하고 찍어대니까 방법이 없음. 인식없이 수동으로 찍으면 글자가 다 날아감. 예전에 어도비 어플에 같이 포함되있었을때가 훨씬 100배는 좋았음


행복한 사과

제가 처음으로 아이패드를 써봤는데 어떻게 필기해야 할지도 모르고 노트필하기에 좋다고 해서 산 아이패드인데 막상 써보니 어떤 맵을 쓸줄 잘 몰랐습니다. 그러던중 이 Adobe Scan 이라는 맵을 처음 써봤는데 사진을 찍어 스캔하면 마치 내가 직접 필기한갓 처럼 사진이 만들어 집니다. 정말 너무너무 감사합니다. 애플 유저 된걸 정말 다행이라고 생각합니다.

혁신 그 자체


어플 리뷰 처음 남기는데 진짜 너무 좋네요

프린트물을 책상에 올려두고 아이패드를 갖다 대기만하면 자동으로 사진찍어서 텍스트 추출 다 해줍니다... 다른 스캔 어플 다 필요없어요 인식도 거의 정확합니다. 최고에요 어도비
