While I have had my gripes about ABBYY’s price and what I believe is a clear loss in the quality of the apps (ie it’s still hard to find better desktop software!), I nonetheless have to say this app is excellent. I am a PhD candidate in the humanities, and had to pass four research languages in order to complete the program. That meant I had to learn to translate quickly, and recognize common phrases in each language. If one is looking for the parsing or definition of a word then a lexicon is best, but if one needs to actually translate and work through sentence structure, then this is one of the most helpful apps I’ve found. I continue to use it for quick translation or to check my own rendering. *i do echo previous comments regarding whether the app utilizes the hardware of the latest iPhone effectively (it doesn’t); the iPhones have the best cameras on the market, and yet the ABBYY apps seem to struggle to take decent pictures. Sadly, it’s often easier and more accurate to take a picture with the native camera app and then import into the suite of ABBYY apps. (I have received multiple responses to this issue telling me I’m doing it wrong, but I have an actual lighting setup and a device that holds the phone over the page...I’m sure I will get corrected again 🙄 but there is some difference - that said ABBYY is still the best available).

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!

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.

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?
