Text recognition finally made easy, super efficient and confidential (no server, your data stays on your device). Textify analyzes images, recognizes text, and creates PDF files with the text integrated such that the files are searchable. Or you can simply export to a .txt file. Very useful and powerful for managing documents.

• Select any images or PDF as input
• Recognize text in any language
• Output as .pdf or .txt
• The created PDF have the text integrated and can thus be searched, copy/pasted,...
• Choose the output file quality, apply filters on the image
• Instant output file size preview
• Works offline, no server, 100% on device

Your privacy matters! No server, no internet connection is required. Your data is safe.

I hope you enjoy the app.

Special note: if you plan to OCR very old (from 1980's) dot-matrix printed documents scanned in very very high resolution, the results might possibly be questionable, due to the nature of such documents. Anyway, the app offers OCR for free, so it's best to try it and see if it fits your needs.

What’s New

Works well for scanned images like patents

I use this for making document images searchable and it works well for this. It appears to do an optical character recognition on the image and then embed that text beneath the scanned document so that you can still recognize the text and formatting of the original document and also select and search the text in the document. However, you cannot easily convert the resulting PDF to a an equivalently formatted Word document (at least I could not). The app generates a watermarked PDF file for free. If you want the watermark removed you have to pay a fee. For most or all of my work, the watermark does not bother me.

Yep, it works

Works very well with normal looking fonts and non-handwritten docs. I didn't expect it to get any handwritten words, but it does get about half of the letters right which is more than I thought it would.
