Imperfect, but Excellent Enough for 5 Stars

Fantasy Mistwood

While I agree with the reviews that complain about the shortcomings of is software when it comes to the camera and processing multiple columns of writing, particularly in Asian languages, I have to say that despite those issues, this software has been the most useful to me out of anything else I have found. I just process one column at a time. It does a far better job than anything else I have tried at identifying the characters in other writing systems. When it comes to Kanji and Hanzi, it is an amazing feat to have a $3 software that can identify these characters, considering there are over 50,000 characters in written Japanese and Chinese respectively. It can be time-consuming to translate one column at a time, but it works and is very useful. Where current technology stands, this application and software are excellent. As someone trying to learn Japanese, having this resource to help me identify Kanji symbols has been incredibly helpful, and I am grateful.

Worth paying for!


I am a nurse and a student. We have so many poster like educational material that I work in information overload always and people do not speak the same language. This is a great resource to translate our educational material and send via email or print for our patients. I even use it to move information from power point slides in class into study notes strait from the professor. Many sites don't let u copy and paste because of right infringement. This bypasses that and since I paid for the information I can't find any reason why I can't use as I choose for myself in the study notes. Fabulous. When this is able to read scribble from my handwriting - than it would be better than almost perfect.
Thank u for this App!!

Slowing down over time


Have been using this app for about 6 months. After about 70 scans or so, noticed decreased performance. Otherwise would give 5 stars.

Deleted the saved scans, and it improved slightly. I notice the biggest slow down in the camera related steps. The OCR and translation are relatively fast still.
The slow down may be affected by the iOS change that has slowed down the clock speed on iPhone 6 and 7 devices. Regardless, it is frustrating.
I use this app frequently, and have been helping a friend who lost the electronic version of a couple books, one in English and one in German. The scan and OCR capability has been nice to re-generate the electronic version from a printed copy.
