What's New in Version 5.5.4
In this release, we've made some improvements to the app, fixing a number of minor bugs along the way, including in VoiceOver.
Please post your thoughts and ideas about TextGrabber on our AppStore page! Your feedback is very useful both to us, the developers, and to other users of the app.
Cool, this app is so amazing! It saves a lot of time from writing a lot of text, instead I can take a snapshot of the text & instantly recognizes the text.
Major bug: it sometimes skips a word in a paragraph. Also it cannot recognize handwriting, but only super fine print.
One thing that I would like for it to do is for it to recognize a handwritten notes. Like for example "cursive writing". The odd thing is it can only recognize fine print but not handwritten letters. Please fix this. Thanks.
Simple and Effective Interface
This app is great and pretty good for my uses cases. A lot of OCR apps l have used are clunky and require a lot of steps, this is not and has become a useful tool when it is needed.
Don't get this app!!!
This app is so useless. The very first text I scanned into the app included very many letters and symbols that were not there making it very hard to read. It was from a text book so it should not have had this many errors!! It was clear text. This app is not worth the 5$!!! DON'T GET IT!
