Customer Reviews

Completely Delighted

I am completely delighted with the ability of text grabber to OCR text. The crop feature can reduce text to a single sentence. And the app has been able to translate text from a small size compared with other OCR apps. In addition this app translates with amazing speeds. This is one of my favorite apps that I am quite pleased with.

Great for students!

I've searched and this has to be the best OCR app in the market. I like to type my notes and that also includes information from textbooks. A real time saver! Please do include any option to directly transfer text to google drive in the future.

A life saver

I spent hours trying to convert a plain scanned document to text on my Mac. All the free programs did a horrible job. Then suddenly I remembered I had this app on my phone, and voila, it converted everything perfectly. Thanks text grabber!
