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.

this records EVERYTHING on your screen once you've activated it and the only way to get it to stop is to restart your phone or uninstall the app. that means if you log in to your bank account they have all of your details. have naughty pictures on your phone? now they have them too. it's function is fine but use it then delete it immediately. response to developer: my phone says otherwise. other screenshot apps dont cause my phone to send the same warning.

That's not what the permission does. It allows framebuffer access so the app can take a screenshot at the precise moment you tell it to. It captures a single frame and saves it to a file locally. It does not communicate your data to the outside world, and it is not capturing more than a 60th of a second.
