What if you could find text in real life? With Find, you can - it’s like Command+F, but for your camera.

Powered by Optical Character Recognition, Find is faster than the human eye. Look for text anywhere, whether that’s in books, worksheets, or even nutrition labels - all in real time. Blast through hundreds of photos in minutes, or just a split second if they are cached. Make lists, and look for multiple words at the same time.

• No ads or in app purchases. Find is completely free.
• Camera - find text in real life. It’s that simple.
• Caching - get insanely accurate and fast results. It takes a couple seconds at first, but results will appear instantly from then on.
• Photos - redesigned in 1.2, you can now find from all your existing photos. Got thousands? No problem, just give Find a couple minutes.
• Lists - the definition of efficiency. Have a vocabulary assignment? Some ingredients that you want to avoid? Group the words in a list to concurrently look for them.

Fantastic IRL Ctrl+F

This app does a surprisingly good job at searching text that you point your phone at. Being able to search through your photos and not saving any data from the app is just the icing on the cake. Can’t wait to see what’s in store! (If you ever set up a system to donate I’m sure a lot of people would love to show their appreciation)

Great for Students

Heard about this app on reddit, super easy to install and use without asking for any unnecessary permissions like 90% of apps do now a days.

Works as intended, which is also better than 90% of apps.

If you still have to use non-digital textbooks, this is almost a must have, 10/10.

Works With Voice Over

I’m a blind, VoiceOver user who was a beta tester for this app. Initially, many of the buttons were either inaccessible or unlabeled. After contacting the Developer to inform him/her of the problem, they were quick to resolve it. If only other Developers could be as thoughtful.
