I really used to love this app.
It could discribe immages from a book and read the texts on the page.
I have to give this a poor rating since I keep getting an error message saying internal server error. I contacted the dev without any response or eta of a fix. The app is useless in its present state.

Wow! Feels like there's somebody in my phone

Just 2 -3 years ago I was scanning with a flatbed scanner at 60 seconds per page, then for $100 I struggled with KNFB's document positioning nightmare, for pure text - AND NOW! BRAIGO! I can identify and actually read print on objects including their labels in less than 20 seconds! Can life get any better?
