Please be aware current OCR technology need your help to get magic result. The magic is predestined when you take pictures:
- Pictures should be taken in bright environment. Normally if your iphone flashed (in auto mode) it means not bright enough (even with flash);
- Pictures should be cropped to exact rectangle just include target texts, OCR engine will take everything inside as text to recognize;
- Pictures should be clear to identify characters, usually shaking or dark environment is the reason of ghosting image;
- Avoiding deep fold document, OCR engine will take everything inside cropped rectangle as text to recognize;
- You also can transfer pictures from other devices (scanner, computer, digital camera, etc.) to your device, then use this app to recognize.
- The only difference with Pro version (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/english-ocr-pro/id562211141?mt=8) is advertising.

A robust friendly OCR app
The app is easy to use and has been spot on when it comes to extracting a wide range of text even against different backgrounds. I've been using the free version and am now considering upgrading to the pro version.
