TIPS FOR OCR: • Make sure your document is flat and well lit. Hold your iPhone still while shooting. Turn the flash On (but beware of glare).
• Scan using "SuperScan 3x" mode.
• Glossy paper may not work well (avoid glare).
• When scanning books keep the pages as flat as possible.
• SmartOCR cannot recognize handwritten, very large (or very short) or underscored text correctly.
• Make sure to select the right language for OCR.

Good Scanning in most Scenarios

The scan tool is simple to use, and the OCR is pretty accurate (only a few garbled words) as long as you have good light and can get the page you are scanning mostly flat.

This version has some nice improvements, such as the ability to control the camera flash. It also has a setting to control line breaks, which is a nice addition.

There is still room for improvement: The OCR produces lots of gibberish when there are any underlined words, lines or other "decorations" on the page. I doesn't read text that is not black very well. It fails to read fractions or special characters, such as a degree symbol (I scan lots of recipes). It also randomly capitalizes some words, particularly ones that start with a "w".

Missing Instructions: How to Use❓— Developer website in Chinese NOT English…

Usage instructions are missing in the app and the Developer provided link takes one to a blogspot that is in some variation of Chinese — not English — and translator widgets don’t provide a clear translation. How are English speakers supposed to get help understanding how2use this app?? ** Developers, please provide instructions and let me know — then I might be able to actually review this app. **
ALSO, the text from image grabber is riddled with mistakes that make it very awkward to, for example, accurately extract a lengthy website address from a screenshot of the website address —might as well just use pen and paper… FAIL - PLEASE FIX ❗️❗️❗️

Major issues

First I’m not sure how it opens all your photos the first time when you did not give the app permission to view your photos the first time you ever use the app.. but besides that. Basics, in edit of either type of upload/photo, there is no undo button/option. Also, basic like cropping and moving dimensions doesn’t work. It gives an overlay over a blank screen, but if you move it around and return to the photo, you see it must’ve moved around according to this overlay w corner points.

Anyway lots of basic problems and I guess I need to change my iCloud account passwords now.
