  • Not very accurate and misleading

    By Kalthrix
    First time using the app today to try to inventory some items that don’t have a barcode. It took nearly 3 attempts for it to read the text correctly. Note, that it is clearly printed and legible. It just saves me some time from having to type it all in since I have about 30 items to go through. Also, listing it as FREE is misleading. It should be noted somewhere on the product page that it is “in fact” a trial and you only get 3 uses to “experience” the product before you “have” to sign up for a premium membership. Overall, the app has a lot of potential. @Developer, your reply suggests that you either didn’t read my review or understand what was written. I’m stating that your product is misleading. It is NOT FREE, it is a very limited TRIAL and needs to be advertised as such.
  • The best OCR app  App Store has to offer!

    By Jposey08
    Top notch OCR app, that has been on my device(s) for nearly 10 years. Nothing I have used compares to this apps accuracy, simplicity, and overall function. Download this app, and never have to install another "OCR" app again.
  • Immediately Uninstalled

    By TW Smith
    for an app that touts you don’t have to be online to scan a document, when you download, you are supposed to agree to letting abby monitor your usage, accept communications and other privacy concerns, just to test it. also, it is a subscription base model, which I did not see in their ad.

  • Absolutely cheap as** force to upgrade to premium

    By KkgLpc
    Bad app and worst developers trying to force users to premium version. Pathetic and total waste of time. These thieves should be banned from App Store. Total disgrace, shame on you suckers!
  • Haven’t finished trial

    By Jonchicker
    I’m only submitting this review because the app keeps popping up the rating screen while I’m trying to email a capture to myself, keeping me from being able to complete the email!

  • Agree to ads?

    By Egadzooks!
    I’ve had this on my iPhone for a long time, but update demanded I agree to receive ads from third parties. The app is now gone from my iPhone. Developer response said I can turn off ads. I’ve added a star.
