Ratings and Reviews
How many times have you wished you could just take a picture of a flyer and auto magically call the phone number or go to the website? Well with this app you can!
The developer is very responsive and also has a great offer: whatever subscription you get on your iPhone isNot only available on all your devices but via family sharing all your families devices. We just bought the $9.99 lifetime subscription-WHAT a deal!
One of those does-one-thing-well apps. Very very well in this case. I'm surprised at how often I pull it up to scan a text image or something I'm citing from a book I'm reading. Nice to have it on all my platforms (so thanks also to Apple for making that easier than it has been in the past).
I have been wanting this for years
I have had the need for exactly this app for years.
Suddenly I hear about it and I have already used it half a dozen times in one day for real!
Works seamlessly and fast. Zero mistakes that I have seen. Thanks to whomever developed this app, it's so rare to see new softwre that just does something you need. Poof!
