Saved me hours

I was able to turn 17 full pages of cluttered writing into text

Of course there were plenty of errors, but that’s understandable considering I have the handwriting of a small child. Going through and fixing the mistakes is much faster than typing it all up from scratch

From what I saw, it was all free and there was nothing asking for subscriptions

Love the app!

High fidelity reproduction from handwriting to text saves me so much time and effort!
Much better at this than other apps that I tried, requiring much lighter editing. Love that I can then export the PDF. All this free, unlike other apps. Truly, incredibly grateful for this app!!! Please continue this and never stop!
