Ratings and Reviews
Great App with hard to find features
One of the great features is the ability to see where the ODR is reading from. As an example, it reads the phone number and puts in what the OCR thinks it is. When you click within the phone field a small window of the image displays the exact character it is "reading" as a 9 (or whatever).
After reading fairly good reviews, I downloaded app and have been using often. It is VERY hit and miss. I often (1 out of every 3) get gibberish in all or most fields - and more often, I’m manually correcting at least one field. I can’t figure out why… Sometimes it’s over cellular, sometimes it’s when connected to Wi-Fi. And doesn’t seem tied To whether bus. card are white paperstock, traditional formats or more creative in layout. Other times it works like a charm. But if you’re looking to frequently and put cards as I am, having to manually enter 1 of every 3 is neither impressive nor useful.
Latest update has bugs.
I’ve always love this app. It was accurate and quick. That is up until the last update. Now it’s started with multiple pictures. Crazy symbols inserted. I find myself have to correct and manually insert information.
I just don’t understand why these updates go backwards.
It was great. Leave it alone.
