TIPS & TRICKS

Recognition results are available as unformatted text (TXT). If you want to scan books or large multi-page documents with preserving formatting (for example, DOC, XLS), please try ABBYY FineScanner.
· Translation is performed by a third-party service, so we do not have full control over the result.

Inconsistent OCR. The real-time camera OCR feature ("video" option) looks great in theory, but quality of the result is bad. It doesn't recognize characters that are very clear and sharp. As for the "photo" option, OCR is somehow even worse. Every test was done with images properly focused and enough light.

It is a good app, in general. It is ok, since it does it's job, but if you want more than three stars make it a really free app. I mean the ads are ok and aren't many. I suggest increasing the ads, in order to make it free and the premium should be with no-ads, please improve this in order to make it better than other apps for translations, thank you

Really impressive app, the level of accuracy to me is almost 97% except for some symbols that it can not capture but it's understandable, but when it comes to capturing words there is no issues what so ever. I don't know why the negative reviews left by others, it seems like they don't have a good understanding on how this app works. I am also a fan of ABBYY other apps and desktop software. Really good quality software deserve appreciation.
