Boy, Bye ,

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!

MUST HAVE, I cannot express this enough! BEST app that translates image to text.

I have never rated any apps before but I just had to for this app. I spent countless hours with several apps, some even paid apps and this app was the ONLY app that did what I wanted to do free of cost. It is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I work at a school with non English learners and wanted an application that was able to translate the text from a piece of paper and put it in text form so that I was able to put it into google and translate the text from English to another language. It was the only app that was able to transfer the text from an image I took and write it out so that I am able to select it and translate it into google. I HIGHLY recommend this app if you are looking to transfer image to text, and the plus side, it is free!!!
