One complaint

Using ios5 with an iPhone 3s, no beep and the auto shoot didn't seem to work automatically, but having someone double check it, it read with an 85-90% accuracy. The misspelled words could be determined using context clued. I'm reading a book with it. Noted that a bit below center seemed to work best. Hopefully someone with a 4 or 4s will try it. The 3s doesn't have a flash but I had a desk lamp on and it seemed to do fairly well. Give it another go. Work on the beep though if you guys would?

Auto shoot does work 👍👍👍😄

After Using this app for few days, found out the auto shoot does work on both of my iPhone 4 and 4s. You just have to make sure to scan a whole page and not just portion of the page. And dark letter on white background is important too. A steady hand can help too.

Impossible to use

To think that this was made for the visually impaired makes this app all the more frustrating. After 20 minutes of it picking up no actual words and numerously flipping the orientation the wrong way, im more upset that i wasted my time rather than just reading the dang thing. Had great potential for audio learners such as myself but very poorly executed.
