Omg Thank you!!
I have about two months worth of handwritten notes that I needed to transcribe for a book I’m trying to finish writing by the end of the year. My laptop is currently on it’s way back to the manufacturer for repairs which meant about a two week delay was in my future. When I heard (and prayed) that such a technology existed where you can do this I checked it out. For me, if the app isn’t user friendly and comprehensive right away I’m done. This app blew my mind. It was simple, quick and, amazingly, almost completely accurate on every hand written page I had. I was thinking “no way this thing is going to be able to figure out my chicken scratch” but it proved me wrong. I had very few corrections to make but that’s more because of his sloppy my handwriting is than anything else. Then saving/transferring to Google Drive where I’m keeping the rest of the notes I already have for my book was cake. I don’t think you could ask for a more perfect app for this particular need.
I think I’ve finally found the app for me!
I have been looking FOR AGES for an app that could help me with the MOUNDS AND MOUNDS of handwritten notes, ideas, research, etc. that I have lying around my house in boxes, file cabinets, folders, and stuck to my wall. And let me tell you... THIS IS THE APP TO GET THINGS DONE!! I have excellent handwriting... normally. But when I get an idea for my book or new OC, I don’t have time to be neat or even legible. I just scribble as fast as the thought/idea/eureka moment hits me and hope my hand can keep up with my new revelation to end all revelations. So you can only imagine the state of these notes. I honestly thought no handwriting recognition app would be able to help me... but then I found this one and I can honestly say, I’m BEYOND impressed. It’s not perfect, but BY GOD DOES IT GET AT LEAST 85-95% OFF THE WORDS. FIRST TRY! And THAT, my friend, is an app worth keeping around!
This app is amazing
The app is so great. I used it to take pictures of my personal cookbook to digitise a recipe I made up and it does such a great job with cursive handwriting. I tried another app at first that made you edit the image line by line and in the end you weren’t able to save the text anywhere unless you bought the premium version (why even bother giving you a free version of the app then?)
This app, however, allowed me to save my recipe to notes and when I scanned in the next page and edited it, the app, by default, appended the text to the first note it had created so I was able to build my three page recipe into Apple notes without having to do much typing at all! I would highly recommend this app if you’re looking for OCR software.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
