What's New in Version 5.4.7
We’ve fixed some small bugs. Previously iOS 10 was fully supported in TextGrabber.
We are looking forward to your reviews and suggestions. Your feedback is very useful both to us, the developers, and to other users of the app.
I don't usually write reviews however this app is saving me a tremendous amount of time. It isn't perfect when it's grabbing text but the small errors that it makes in the greater scheme of things are inconsequential compared to the amount of time that it's saving me. I can email the text to myself pasted into a word document get an accurate word count, create a vocabulary list, look for words that have my targeted articulation sounds the list goes on.
This is an awesome OCR app. It is one of the best apps I have downloaded on my phone. It is very dependable. Not one time have it shut down on me while working. I was using it to my benefit and it did not fail. Easier to work with than my multifunctional printer. I have had the app on my phone for some time but never really used it until now.
Great + one suggestion
Very handy. Text recognition is good/excellent
My suggestion: It doesn't recognize paragraphs so lines of the same para are broken by a line break. Result: painful work to find each line break and backspace = waste of time.
I would suggest adding possibility to reconstitute paragraphs. I.e. Replace a paragraph mark that is followed by a lower case with a space.
Anyway, great app
