What's New in Version 6.0.1

We are excited to announce the completely new TextGrabber 6!
The new real-time recognition feature brings TextGrabber to an entirely new level. Try it now and leave a review, please!

With our innovative real-time OCR technology, you can capture text directly from your camera screen, without the need to take a photo and crop it. The digitized text instantly becomes actionable: it can be copied, edited, shared, translated into 100+ languages or read using VoiceOver. Links, phones, emails, street addresses and dates become clickable to easily perform the corresponding task – follow, call, email, find on maps or add to the calendar.

The UI has not been neglected either. TextGrabber has been redesigned in crisp green and white and the following improvements have been made:
• A “Save” button has been added to the results screen to enable you to save only the fragments you need.
• The camera can now be launched from the notes screen with the large convenient button.
• The “Share” dialog box has been replaced with a system one, where you can send the results to any app on your device.
• Photo OCR has also been given a complete overhaul to achieve faster OCR speeds and a smaller memory footprint.

Thank you!

Customer Reviews

great but

We need arabic language please.


Almost perfect OCR from photo.
But what makes this better than all the others is it keeps the formatting of the text. I use it to OCR poetry and after scanning, the formatting is just like the original. Bravo!

Great app

This is a good app to have especially if you're a student. You can copy the words from the pages and then search the text to find specific details.
