What’s New

Version 1.6.6

Hello everyone!

Firstly, thank you so much for the amazing support we've received from you guys over the past week. And also, thank you for all the feedback you've given us over the past week. We've incorporated a few things with this update and will work towards adding more of your requests in the coming weeks. Here's what's changed with this update:

1. We've fixed a crash for some users when no product was found or if an invalid barcode was detected.
2. We've updated strings for Arabic, Czech & Chinese strings.
3. Some more under the hood improvements that should speed things up within the app.

Awesome, but...

But... Seeing AI is free for iOS devices. And is Envision AI’s main ‘competition’. I get it though, not every company can afford making free apps (like Microsoft can). That said, the prices are fair.
I like everything else so far, and I’m sure it’ll get better and better with each update.

Best OCR engine available even beat Orcam! When will we see a glasses version?

I use this app every single day. Are used to use Seeing AI or a lot of other different apps and other devices like Orcam and E Sight. But I have found is this app actually takes the place of almost all of them! I am waiting for these guys to find a pair of smart glasses that will support their app on them! When are you guys going to put your app on a pair of smart glasses? I know you looked into views explains? Have you looked into the X2 by Third Eye Generation? I think you guys would partner quite nicely and they are quite inexpensive and allow for many different apps to go onto their App Store. I think I can’t wait for the partnership or at least with some other type of glasses because I am tired of hanging my phone from my neck to use your app all the time the facial recognition really doesn’t work well that way and I think you guys would be amazing in a pair of glasses and tent to some developer out there!!!

Loving this and looking forward to more

This has been my go-to app the last few weeks because of its accuracy in reading text. I prefer this over seeing ai but that works only for folks who want use this the app in English. Envision AI works in German too which is my 2nd language. I love that the developers are taking the effort to do this! Worth the subscription!
