● Generally quite good. However, for Text Capture, some words, icons, symbols , imojis, etc appear as text misspellings. Text capture engine needs improvement to 98% or more accuracy. ● For Samsung Galaxy A54, the "copy text option" fails to recognize copied text (=> "No Text Detected"). ● The ability to rearrange the order of opening screen options would be a great improvement ● as would a floating screen shortcut on the main screen. Ultimately, it's free, reliable, user-friendly & has no ads!

While I really appreciate the more modern clean interface compared to other apps like this, it unforunately doesn't seem very good at what it does. Maybe it is for simple straight forward images but I had a lot of bullet points in my pdf file (both with check boxes and numbers and letters) and it strangely didn't know what to do with it and would put things out of order.

Great app! Square box quick and easy to position on the page for getting all the text selected, if necessary. Does an amazing job of "sharpening" and straightening the text, recognizes columns. You can create a PDF from some pages, and then add more pages later if you wish. The developer is super and responded unbelievably quickly, worked with me until a problem was fixed with an update. The ads didn't bother me, but I bought the ad-free version just to help support a good program/developer.
