I don't want to give you a bad review. But, I can't even get past registration. I keep getting an error. I used different email addresses and I turned off my VPN and still the app gave me a domain error. This required login has given you this bad review. I am also severely dyslexic, I was looking forward in using your app.

Doesn't Work

Awful! It can only recognize text if it's really big and very neat. It's not useful for anything, don't bother with this app. I would give it 0 stars if I could

Horrible Image Processing

The image processing on this app is terrible. It gets about one in every five words correct. Not worth your time.
