Easy, Intuitive, and accurate OCR As soon as I loaded the app I used it to do OCR on a paragraph in an old book. I got it within seconds. It prompts you to copy the text to the clipboard and I pasted it where I wanted. Highly accurate. It seemed to confuse "i" and "1" in some spots, but it got the rest "right on."

Used to be SO good! The newest update has it accessing a column of data just a little too low, a little too far left of where the data area was selected. It doesn't seem to matter if you change the original selection block, the column selection cuts off the left most data and will not let you move the box to adjust

Great app, no issues so far. I do have one question though: is it possible to disable the OCR? I know that it's specifically what the app is marketed for, but I also want to scan documents with handwriting, which fills the PDF text with gibberish. I tried deleting all the languages in settings, but after doing that the app goes back to the setup and re-downloads them
