It took 8 tries, but if I hold my Samsung Galaxy S5 perpendicular to the page, I get great results in English and not bad ones in German. Can't beat this discount price of $3.99 in Canadian dollars.
It's simple, fast, accurate and fun to use. Latest update minimizes the need to clean up results. Accuracy is astonishing! Handles to resize the capture window gets exactly what you want, and nothing else. If your phone is running a fast CPU, the speed is outstanding. Very well done indeed, and more than worth the price.
Great app to have.
It's not as good as the iOS version for recognizing text. I tried basic English and it would still fumble over the clearest of pictures and words. Needs a lot of working and not worth $9.99 although I picked it up on sale for $2.99. Also signature addition was removed from the iOS version but still persists in the Android version which in my opinion is unwanted advertisement on a paid product. Remove please.
