Poor - needs a lot of work doing to it

I tried it last week and it worked for a couple of pages. However I've tried several times today and no luck (and having to buy 30 credits - thanks guys!).
To be clear I took perfect hi-contrast photos using a canon SLR and the images were perfect. However the app did nothing with them. No confirmation that the images were or were not acceptable. This is just not good enough

Pretty poor

It's a bit misleading this App. It says it gives you five daily credits, but once you use these up you don't get any new ones the next day. Also if the text recognition fails, you will just end up with no text and it uses one of your credits. Apart from that it's just about functions. Pity it doesn't carry over any formatting such as paragraphs as it is all bundled into one big long piece of text. Badly needs updating. I found it actually quicker to take a picture with my camera, email it to myself on my laptop and use an OCR program there to convert it. So at the moment it's a bit of a waste of time to be honest.

I think it's important to make sure you start with a good, clear, focused image, and you crop the text you don't want before hand on the normal photos app, and obviously you wouldn't use this with handwriting or unusual fonts (obvious I know, but some people I know don't think of this ...) and yeah worked very quickly and accurately! Very useful :)
