Ratings and Reviews
Pixter OCR app
I don’t remember how long ago it was that I wrote my original review below, but opening up a Pixter to “OCR” a page out of my son’s book, I find that if I want to do what I have been doing for several years, I now have to pay for it.
It seems that there have been other changes to this app that had me scratching my head. It had previously been simple and intuitive to use, but not today.
So, I withdraw the five stars I had given it in my previous review from whenever that was.
Like one of the reviewers before me, this is my first time writing a review for an iPhone app. This one is perfect. I went to a bulletin board nearby, used this app to take a picture of a lot of text in the ad, and converted it to text that I was able to use immediately. This is awesome!
I have to agree with others with this app
I used to love and rely on this app to copy text from things that took forever to type up. But now typing is way more worth the time than spending any money on an app that doesn’t work. Nice try guys, but you should go back to how the app was. I can’t remember if this app was something that was free or if I purchased it; if I was to remember that I spent money on this app I will be very unhappy cause I’m definitely deleting it.
Former great app rendered useless
This used to be a great app where you could take a picture of text, OCR it, and then translate it. Having upgraded to the most recent version, the translation module is disabled. Spend 7 bucks to enable it, and it still doesn’t work at all. I’ve been screwed, learn from my mistake.
