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".

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.

Not intuitive

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.
