Still the best OCR scanner in my opinion

After using the latest version of "Quickscan" I continue to be impressed with the quality of the scanning output and the English OCR.
Regarding English OCR, the app is almost flawless in reading even poor quality photos or PDFs and translating them into readable and searchable PDF text versions. The app also continues to do a non-destructive conversion. That way if a word doesn't correctly translate, it will still appear as the original.
This latest rollout includes the ability to store your scans in the app. That is really helpful sometimes when you need to go back and make a change to a prior scan. You can now do some basic editing within the app, such re-ordering or deleting pages before the conversion.
This update provides a noticeable improvement in the image quality of PDF scan, especially if set to the highest quality scan setting.
Best of all, this app is *free*. I find that unbelievable given the quality. So if you download it and find it as useful as I do, give the developer a tip and we will continue to receive updates to the best OCR scanner on the App Store, IMO.

best scanner app I ever came across

I’m not a person usually wrote review or comment on something. To thanks 🙏 and show support to the developer of this app especially, I would like to give short review of this app. I’ve been tried so many scanner app on the market, but I find this app is the best compare the rest I’ve been try before. The scanner feature is excellent, it can capture the edges of the paper precisely even our hands shaking hold the phone. It have the OCR function afterward if you like it to be read. You can save it as pdf, as text or jpg format. It simple and do what the app function perfectly, and the developer made this app totally free. It outstanding... I wish the developer can create more useful apps in the future. Thank you to the developer sincerely.

Quick and Concise

OCR scanning is such a great feature that I now use daily. The ease of just taking a photo of a product, device, document or whatever it may be, scanning the image, copying the extracted text and pasting it into my notes, tasks, messages, etc. saves so much time and effort.

Now that I'm consistently using QuickScan, it is just that easy. I initially purchased a few different apps and have found them to be slow or lagging, inaccurate, posting error messages and inconsistent.

It's very impressive how well QuickScan performs, even when reading text that's out of focus to some degree. I have briefly tried one other app comparable to QuickScan, but it's expensive and requires a subscription.

On that note, I want to thank for providing such a great app and of course in addition to not actually charging, not going down the subscription path.

I did initially make a donation to buy you cup of coffee, but just prior to writing this, I bought you a sandwich as well. I also appreciate the fact that you don't request donations to purchase lottery tickets, because those people just take forever in line at the convenience store...
