    Fantastic OCR! Sadly, it won't appear in Android's "Share with" dialog, which really hinders workflow. Please add! CLARIFICATION: Thanks for the reply, but I was referring to TextGrabber not appearing in the Android "Share with" dialog, which you'd need to be able to open an image or screenshot in TextGrabber directly from within Gallery, Google Photos or so. Currently, you have to make the screenshot, then open TextGrabber, then reopen the image from there. This could be simplified. Thanks!

  • Great Text Recognition app Oct 7, 2019

    By cb4ujudge
    If you want a great application to capture text, whether it’s from a book, a document, or an article in a magazine, etc. this is the go-to app I would recommend. It’s not perfect - some text is incorrectly recognized, however, that is usually the fault of the lighting of the document being scanned. If you evenly light the image that you’re scanning before doing a scan you’ll have great results, although a couple of words may be incorrectly recognized. Minor effort is required to edit them before saving the documents or emailing them. My only gripe is that when combining multiple scanned pages, they are combined in a non-intuitive order. It would be nice if you could somehow number each page that was scanned in the order that you want them combined. Maybe this could be fixed in a future release!

    It is a good app, in general. It is ok, since it does it's job, but if you want more than three stars make it a really free app. I mean the ads are ok and aren't many. I suggest increasing the ads, in order to make it free and the premium should be with no-ads, please improve this in order to make it better than other apps for translations, thank you

    So many scanner apps promise test digitalization or OCR, yet when it comes to it, a simple extracting of a telephone number from the bank transaction (charge description) becomes more work and steps than one would care to perform or remember. This app takes care of that and even remembers the results, without the need to bother with saving files. Ability to specify this app as a target for sharing in the helper menu is a key feature, not to minimize how well the app is made to handle all various OCR situations and text translation to/from 100 languages, even language detection, which is major, when you really need it, like to translate a message in a global chat. Best app.

    Please think about adding ability to replace replace/all in text that has been captured. Or a list of word/sentences to never render into ocr’d text. I’d pay for this as an in app purchase! 1: please add more flexibility. Like ios share sheet extension access to send to textgrabber. Ability to take screenshot in iOS 11 and immediately send to textgrabber by clicking on the screenshot thumbnail. Ability to edit straight in textgrabber from where a photo is full screen opened from camera roll eg three little dots within circle ... 2: The latest ipads and phones are quite powerful. Looking forward to the app, hopefully this one, that let’s me upload a OCR pdf and automatically snapshot all the pages into editable text. That will be the holy grail and I’d surely pay for the update or in app purchase.

    I think you should put the languages that can be translated by this app in the decription here. I downloaded this for translating a content printed in sinhala, only to find you do not support sinhala to english translation 😪

    Works well but subscroption is a con and overpriced compared to what was previously offered. I own this (paid) on IOS and its been great with a one time payment giving me years of translation/ocr. Installed on my work Android and found they moved to a subscription and crippled the demo badly and added in ads making the demo more of a monetised proof of concept. I noticed it also doesnt work well on this phone (Galaxy S series). Bring back the one-time purchase.

  • Needs work and improvements Jan 19, 2018

    By Sam Winston Hawk
    Such high ratings for an app that constantly either not doing what it’s suppose to. OCR feature need work more text recognition...I could really do without all those symbol @&$”#%*€£¥> when it’s done scanning. It is annoying, very annoying. The paid finish product is very disappointing. Also, I’d like the developer to include Lao and Thai language in the translation feature. If I had known that Thai and Lao language translation was not included, I would not had bought it because it’s practically useless to me. How do I request for a refund in that regard? Edit: I just check again, there is no Thai or Lao language option for the translation feature? If there is it certainly isn’t on mine. How do I get it?

    You guys are my heroes. You make all other developers of OCR tech look silly with their internet connection prerequisite. Not to say that there isn't room for improvement. But just for being an efficient offline OCR app, you blow everyone else out of the water.

  • So far so good Dec 16, 2019

    By MhoneyJ
    I’m testing the app and it’s pretty accurate for recognizing English, which I really need it at this moment. However, there are a few things that doesn’t accurately. First, the app couldn’t recognize the words lie on the distortion of the photo during the photo taking process. Second, online translation into Vietnamse which has 20% vocabulary that could not be translated, and the translation is pretty wild (not smooth translation). Please take a look into those points. But in general, I am much appreciated how it works right now.

  • Works very well! Sep 28, 2019

    By BestAppsUser
    I’ve used this app for a long while and I’ve been quiet about it, because it WORKS! Even when I give it a grainy pic. Recently took the iOS13 upgrade and was kindly asked to rate it. Sorry for waiting so long but rest assured I have recommended the app to many of my colleagues and friends over the years, primarily in the technical field. Hopefully they will add to the accolades and review it ALLSTARS as well. Keep up the good works. Btw: When a file export or save fails in other apps. I say “screw it” I got TextGrabber and they get the NOStars.

  • Great Tool Nov 4, 2017

    By Statsoul
    I have been in Germany for the last few years. This application has been extremely useful. I have been able to translate everything written communication I get in German into English. The application is not perfect but it does the trick. I can read menu's, adds, shopping information, food labels and many other things on the spot. There is still room for improvement but I better deal with the 10% opportunity than with 100% ignorance. Bottom line, it is a great application worth having.

  • Great + one suggestion Aug 20, 2018

    By D_or 2000
    Very handy. Text recognition is good/excellent My suggestion: It doesn't correct parallax of a scanned page. If you take the picture of a book there will be a distortion due to the page curve. It seems this causes issues with the OCR. Since we know that a lign should be straight, the software should be able to correct the parallax and correct distortion at the beginning and end of the lines. This, I assume, would improve the OCR of the scanned page. Anyway, great app

    Just awesome!Easy user interface, fast recognition, fully functioning offline mode. The reason why I'm not giving 5 stars is that the app recognizer doesn't support Arabic and uzbek (krill) characters.Can you add them in the next version?

    Liked your app, it helps when needed. But just because I subscribe for 2 months, you guys cant automatically deduct money from my account and keep renewing the subscription when i dont need your app. You guys to to ask before you take people's money away. Uninstalling your app now.

    Only 3 trial translations-not enough to compare with others fairly. MONTHLY subscription. Received translations were only so-so. Not the best UI workflow. Quite bad actually when compared to others.

    So far every attempt to get text from a picture it comes out in garbled computer language. It cannot capture text. Even regular form words in standard font get garbled, unusual spaces added and misspellings get transcribed.

    Junk skip it You have only couple tries to get it to work. Then it wants full purchase price for an app you haven't been able to get working. If you really need it buy it use it get refund.
