First app I've seen with a Royal Straight flush in spades

Really, up till now I have always found those who were having a bad day, and those who wanted free or low cost apps to read their minds, pick their clothes, and then get ticked off by the app when it did what it said what it was going to do. When I saw the graph with no lower outliers, or for that matter no midrange likes wow! I was honestly shocked. I hit the the 5⭐️ button before, I took my look at the stats. I assure you, that this one is my first 5! I sorta believe that people who give out 1s, or 5s, just hit my tech background as outliers. So I usually try to get the true skinny from the mid opinions. and many of those work out fairly well. I read the lower than 5s, then make decisions.
Took all of that to say that I'm truly bowled over. This one leaves the term 'user friendly', back at the starting block! Software that is intuitive is another understatement.
Well Done Ladies and Gentlemen! So when the giant asteroid has a bead on us, guess who I will be asking for.

Very, very good, but not perfect

I didn’t expect much for a free app, but I was pleasantly surprised. Quick on-device OCR is very good. However, it does not learn from its mistakes. It has some problems with some italic letter combinations, and there is no way to teach it otherwise.

As indicated in the description, this app is a demo, … an extremely functional and useful demo. There are no ads to interrupt your work.

Fast, accurate and easy to use

This is one of the most easy to use apps I tried, the user interface experience is a pleasure.
I tried scanning some documents I have and the results were so accurate, this app helped me extract text from the documents I have exported it to notes and now it can easily be searched.
Give it a try!
