App Reviews

  • Love it

    By WacPax
    Great app
  • Excellent app.

    By ademarzio
    Works as expected.
  • Great app

    By John615
    This is a wonderful app! The only thing that would help a bunch would be an Action Extension so I could send images directly to it rather than saving them, opening the app, and then pulling them in. An extensive URL scheme would also be fantastic, but that would just be for the advanced users. Thank you!
  • Works well enough

    By NGD14
    The app is good, but has trouble sometimes recognizing the characters. I.e., mistaking ‘F’ for ‘P’ and other simple swaps. Characters will sometimes be mistaken for punctuation marks and split into random strings such as “/-:.,”. It works well enough for anyone to get it, despite its issues.
  • Convenient for Kindle pdfs that don’t support cut and paste

    By Speartooth
    I save quotes of my reading. When cut and paste does not work I instead take a screen shot, open this utility, open most recent photo, OCR then cut and paste.
  • Awesome app!!!

    By TheQueb
    Does everything I need and more
  • Great App but not for Type-written Pages

    By TRibbons
    The main reason I got Text Grabber was to transfer courier-font typewritten pages to editable text. Although it performed the best out of all the apps I’ve tried so far, it’s accuracy for my needs is still sporadic and incomplete. For everything but what I needed, this app is excellent.
  • TextGrabber

    By Qfhuggjgg
    This app doesn’t have any Philippine languages. They don’t tell you this before you purchase it. Then you are stuck paying for money for something you can’t use.
  • Outstanding app!

    By RonBSenior
    Outstanding app! Supremely simple and straightforward to use; OCR accuracy is essentially 100%; and English to Spanish translation is also outstanding. I would, however, being able to have the app intelligently recognize multiple column (like newspapers and magazines) articles, and thereby recognize the text per column instead of recognizing the article strictly from top to bottom disregarding the columns—which products unusable gibberish. Additionally, it would be nice to be able to scan mute-pages in one session by appending successive pages to the initial page scanned. My extra desires aside, however, this TextGrabber version earns my 5-Star rating!
  • 95% of the time it doesn’t work.

    By ;45/3)
    I’m in Korea and trying to read package labels in grocery stores and public signs explaining a statue or tourist site. The app usually says it can’t identify the language and stops there. Or, it will let me know it’s having trouble and ask if I want to continue. I click yes and I just get gibberish. It’s a great idea if it would work.
