About this app

Does your phone take blurry low resolution JPEG screenshots (Samsung device users, we’re talking to you)? HiQ OCR Screenshot Tool is the answer.

Our screenshot app is configured out of the box to take high resolution screenshots for our OCR apps such as Word Breaker and Snap Assist. These screenshots will be perfect without any of the strange artifacts introduced by the JPEG image format.

We offer 3 ways to take a screenshot.
Shake your device.
From a button on the overlay. (We even hide the overlay momentarily while taking the screenshot for a perfect snap every time.)
From the app’s notification.

Permissions - our app asks for a few permissions that are mandatory. The permissions are:

1) Read/Write permission to your SD Card. We require this permission to write our beautiful screenshots to your SD card.

2) Capture your screen. This permission is required to take a screenshot of your screen. Don’t worry, we aren’t recording all the time. We only record for a brief second, just enough for a single screenshot. You can see when we’re recording because an icon will briefly flash in your notification drawer.

3) Draw on top of the screen permission. This permission is only necessary when you activate the overlay.

Snap assist gave me error messages that it could not recognize a tile. It recommended that I should download this app that reads it in PNG instead of the JPEG image. Unfortunately, after downloading your app, it freezes up. I hit the "start" button per instruction on , then I push the "start now" button and the "do not show this message again". That's where it freezes up. Tried uninstalling several times but still nothing. You say its new so I will stick around and hope the bugs get fixed.

Nope. Still doesn't work. I'm not checking anymore. With the image I want to capture on screen, I bring up the app and click take screen capture. When I look at the image it is of my home screen or sometimes the image is very transparent. It usually does get the image eventually, but I've had to repeat the process up to 10 times.

The scshots are very good. However, after each shot the overlay button takes 1-2sec to reappear. Also, when the shutter sound is off one doesn't know if the shot was taken. More options to customize the button would be welcomed.
