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).

If all you want to scan is business cards...

…then this is the app for you. It has really lacklustre results scanning anything else I've tried; if the image is at all noisy or colourful it seems to have a fit and can't cope with it. The whiteboard scanning feature is essentially useless, it's merely taking a photo of a whiteboard and offering some upload or email options (marginal improvement over the standard camera roll).

To its credit the business card scanning function seems to work admirably well, but for the price of this app I feel it should do more. What about handwriting recognition from whiteboards? Or some decent OCR for printed text that's not just lines on a page? Those would be worth paying for - as it is, this is expensive junk.

Brilliant OCR App!

Easy 5-star app. Stands out way above the other scanning apps! The strengths of this app is the multiple column OCR feature that makes this app as powerful as a desktop app, and saving you heaps of time. I use this app for research purposes, scanning & OCRing newspaper and book columns. Then I export my notes to Evernote. The Read-aloud features would be a real bonus for eyesight impaired users as well. Defiantly consider spending the extra $$$ on this app than the other single-column scanners.
