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.

Ratings and Reviews
Poor recognition. I downloaded this app a while back and just recently had an opportunity to use it on instructions printed on a flat piece of packaging. This was an easy scan because the text was very clear.
I spent quite a bit of time having to correct errors and then the app notified me my "free scans" had been used and they would be $1.99 each in the future.
A bit hard to navigate and won’t save the picture of scanned documents along with the text it saves. There are likely better options; don’t waste your time with this one.
Too many errors
I chose a screenshot of English text from a news website to test the OCR. Even after cropping the image to one paragraph with a large and clear font, it mixed up simple words and entire lines of text. Not recommended.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
