Scan and OCR (Optical Character Recognition / Recognize Text) documents in PDF.

OCR and all image processing are performed on user devices so there is no data exposure risk.

DocOCR turned your iPhone / iPad into a powerful scanner for text recognition.

Use it to scan and OCR not only documents, but also books, whiteboards, receipts, business cards, posters, coupons, ...etc. as PDFs, and annotate or sign the scanned PDFs.

Photo Collage:
- Combine multiple pages into one sheet.
It's very useful especially when you need to print multiple pages (e.g. two sides of ID cards) on one A4/Letter paper.

It can automatically detect document edges and surface in a picture, dewarp curved surface, correct perspective distortion, remove shadows and brighten it up to produce a clear and sharp document, especially useful in a low-light environment.

It is easy to drag and drop files to group them in a folder and organize in many ways: create, delete, edit, rename, deplicate, merge, split, and move documents between folders. You can search documents by name easily in the app.

By turning on the auto file sync with iCloud Drive, you can easily access your scanned documents from any other device. (Pro version only)
By turning on WiFi file sharing, you can read all PDF files on the device.

You can also email documents out as PDF or JPEG files.
Export OCR result as txt or docx file.

Best Scanner App Hands Down

I am a big hobbyist for scanning books. I even have a $400 book scanner. This app makes it look so easy. Beautifully dewarps using the lines of text for curvature correction. I wish you would release a book scanning app that would split the pages at the middle. Will make scanning so fast and I can sell my scanner 😀

One feature request for DocOCR. After scan correction, I can resize, set color or rotate. How about crop? I sometimes want to crop the image only after flattening it, for best results. That’s missing right now. If you can dewarp so beautifully, cropping would be a piece of cake for you.

Very useful to flatten page sides compared to notes

This is an impressive app! I had to scan a document and I was pleased to see that the result was almost the same of an actual scanner, brightness enhancement and side page adjustments (flattening the edges) were incredibly good and the result was a million times better than what you get with the notes app. Highly recommend.

Spectacular warp correction for OCR purposes

I am extremely impressed. As of the day I write this, I haven't found a Mac OSX app that does the same thing. Auto warp correction, deskew and sharpen far exceeded expectations.

Enhancement requests: a button to convert to grayscale, and a button to rotate in 90 degree increments (your wheel is cool and useful, but not ideal as the only way to rotate).

Simply put: this app is a necessity for taking pictures of book pages before OCR process begins. Great app!
