  • Used PDFpen for years - it does OCR very well

    By 77dmb
    This app is an inaccurate farce. Don't waste your time.
  • Complete Piece of Junk

    By Bob Kohn
    The OCR works but the output looks like a 100th generation fax of the original that is hardly readable. Worst app I’ve every purchased in the App Store. Tried to return it and get my money back, but neither Apple nor the developer seems to know how to do that.
  • Years of uselessness

    By Xevious Mann
    I’ve had this app for years on multiple phones and have never gotten anything but jiberesh from it. It can take 20 shots of the same page to see if any will produce snippets of usable text. There’s also no way I’ve found to delete the excess pages from a doc, only rearrange them.
  • Just finished 200 pages...

    By EE_SteveT
    And this app is amazing. Scanned the docs on my sheet feed scanner and it saved me from having to retype anything. Accuracy was much better than desktop apps I’ve used. Handled page rotation much better.
  • If I could donate the dollar I spent on this app,

    By Schabra
    it would be well worth it. What a horrible ocr app. Don’t buy... if you feel like experimenting, try an alternate app.
  • Just right

    By WWBillG
    Does just what it says it will do. Does it well. Best I have found. Nothing more. That is exactly what I want from an app.
  • Don't waste your money

    By lowerliquid
    This app is typical of apps that are full of hype, but deliver very little in functionality. The OCR function is confusing to use and does not deliver what the developers state. I would rather pay double or triple for a app that does what it says, rather than pay what they ask, but get nothing
  • Very Handy

    By Velvetviol
    Very handy when connection my scanner crashed, and especially when I'm away from my equipment.
  • Gave away my scanner

    By c3nme
    I'm a big fan of Smile Software and this utility really helps me get documents into PDFs which is especially useful when buying a house or sending tax documents in. I may not use it everyday but it's a tool I have to keep around.
  • Maybe not for everyone, but perfect for me

    By PurpleRayne65
    I use this to scan receipts. To get reimbursed by my employers. And anything else I need easily scanned. It's nearly perfect and I won't consider using anything else out there.
