Fast text recognition (OCR) to create searchable PDFs. More than 100 languages available for fast and precise results!

Compose PDF from many sources like existing PDFs, images, emails, web pages, scans, screen shots.

Great compfortable support for desktop scanner devices and iPhone's built in document scanner (Continuity Camera).

Drag or paste every kind of data on the window to append it to the current document and text recognition will automatically be applied if required.

Squeeze reduces the size of your PDF files by compressing images and saves space on your drives.

Emails and web pages get converted to paged PDF files which is great for archiving invoices you get by mail like from AppStore.

Save, copy, print or share the PDF files you created on a fly.

Have the text being read to you.

Undo and redo your changes.

Limitation: Please note, that text recognition is not performing very well for large documents.

If you like PDFify also take a look at our Receipts app for your invoice and document management.

Did exactly what I needed it to do.

I had a scanned file in PDF form that I wanted to convert into searchable text. Simple, right? Apparently not. The document was too large for most online services, and those that would accept the size of the document were painfully slow (to the point I wasn’t even sure they were working). Adobe Acrobat Reader has this feature, except it requires a full subscriptioe and I don’t want to pay for an entire subscription service just for this single document.

So I decided to try the app store. It seemed most other apps that would accomplish this task are paid apps only. At first I overlooked this one because it didn’t have enough ratings to display anything under its icon in the app store. Out of desperation, I guess, I eventually clicked on it for more info. Sounded primising. So I downloaded it and gave it a shot. It worked *beautifully*. I am so glad I came across this app. And it’s FREE. Would recommend. 5/5.

Impresive for a free app!

This app did an excelt job convering my PDFs to searchable ones with a invisible (selectable) text overlay.

I wish it had a batch mode or Automator integration.

Works better than expected

Since I switched to Mac I've been looking for a program to create PDFs from my scanner. This app exceeded my expectations and works well with my 8 yo HP scanner. The resolution can be varied and it even reads the document. Much better than paying $14.95/month for Adobe Acrobat Pro :-).
