Customer Reviews

Good Scanning in most Scenarios

The scan tool is simple to use, and the OCR is pretty accurate (only a few garbled words) as long as you have good light and can get the page you are scanning mostly flat.

This version has some nice improvements, such as the ability to control the camera flash. It also has a setting to control line breaks, which is a nice addition.

There is still room for improvement: The OCR produces lots of gibberish when there are any underlined words, lines or other "decorations" on the page. I doesn't read text that is not black very well. It fails to read fractions or special characters, such as a degree symbol (I scan lots of recipes). It also randomly capitalizes some words, particularly ones that start with a "w".

Works pretty well with my 6 plus.

I needed to be able to scan a store receipt and have it output into a text file so I can put into MS Werd (Didnt want any issues naming another software in review).

This app didn't do to well with receipts and iphone 5. Maybe it was due to the camera quality or the case I had on the phone which had its own lens cover built into it. Other apps had issues also with receipts that I tried.

I have a iphone 6+ now and just tried using this app. It did pretty well with a store receipt. It still got a few of the characters wrong but most of them were correct which can be fixed in the text editor of your choice.

Problems with iOS 9

Since I have upgraded to iOS 9, this app doesn't work very well. The app keeps aborting when it tries to use the camera to scan. It will have five stars from me if the makers updated the app to be compatible with iOS 9.
