Reading a magazine or newspaper and want to keep the article electronically? Need to capture receipts, business cards, labels, instructions or maybe a recipe? Simply take a FotoNote!
FotoNote is the premier solution for converting an image to electronic text. Commonly known as OCR and widely used in the business world, FotoNote brings this useful technology to the iPhone! Now even casual users can OCR their every day items like restaurant receipts for expense reports or tax deduction for example, or maybe take a screenshot in another app that you want to save the text.
Take a photo with your iPhone and FotoNote will convert the photo into electronic text that can be emailed, copied to clipboard, or exported to Facebook, Evernote, Dropbox, or MobileMe. And FotoNote automatically tags your FotoNotes to make them searchable in apps such as Evernote.
Get it now with introductory pricing of only $1.99 for unlimited volume! Capture text from as many photos as you wish and save and share the results.
Unlike other apps, FotoNote performs image enhancement to optimize OCR results. Additional tips for optimal results:
•Photos should be taken on a flat surface with focused, lighted, clear text.
•There should be no bend in the paper that alters the shape of the text.
•Fuzzy, blurry, speckled, or dark photos taken in low light will also negatively affect results.
•Glossy images may also cause glare which may block camera from capturing text.
•Use the crop function to remove any areas not containing text.
•Use the rotate image function if needed to make the image horizontal.
Support for multiple OCR languages:

Minor bug fixes
Not bad. Probably the best OCR app out there
I really like this app. It does what it promises. It also crashed several times on me (otherwise I would have given it 5 stars). The only way I could prevent it from crashing after 4 or 5 scans/pix was to save it after every new page was added. That's too bad because it really slows you down. But overall, this is the first app over $.99 that I haven't felt cheated by after downloading.
amazing for the price!
perfect for voice recognition, text-to-speech that I wanted it for. with the flash turned on, even under less than ideal lighting conditions (cast shadows, a bit of glare), it produced strong results, even when shooting entire pages of text, even with two columns. I'm very happy with this purchase!
Best OCR scanner I've tried.
There is one minor bug I've noticed. You can't export text only. If you choose the menu option, it gets stuck on image only. Not a huge deal. The OCR works as well as anything out there. I wish there was an option to correct perspective. As far as I know, this is the only app that grants access to the ocr text, which is awesome.
