Customer Reviews

"Like" if GigaOM brought you here!

So after the review on gigaom appeared I went ahead and bought the app, works fine on my 3GS, probably works perfect on iphone 4

I don't mean to be rude or something but those of you who purchased an OCR app for iTouch or a 3G must be doing something wrong :) Clearly the camera on those devices will not take OCR-quality images. And yes, this also applies to iPad 2.

nice

app does what it says pretty good
it takes some time to be loaded on my 3gs, i mean its start is not "immediate", needs like 1-2 seconds to be loaded
is it that my 3gs is getting old or is it the same on iphone 4?

Not for iPod

If you've been wondering if this app will work with the new iPod, wonder no longer. The camera on the Gen4 iPod is not detailed enough for the OCR function to work properly, apparently. Even with good lighting and the device held perfectly still, it would only recognize maybe one word in ten. It may work fine with the iPhone 3GS, but don't buy it for your Pod.
