Perfect OCR gives you both a very accurate general purpose OCR app and a high-quality document scanner. Now you can scan and OCR your letter-size or A4 documents with an accuracy of 90% or more, edit, copy and store the recognized text, and e-mail your documents as PDF files with text, SINGLE page image, or both together!

★ NOTE: To ensure the advertised results it is important that you follow the OCR TIPS below (or in the app's help).

★ NOTE: Not designed to work with iPod Touch / iPad 2 camera due to the lower resolution. It is harder to achieve good OCR results with iPhone 3G or earlier model.

"It worked great for me! I translated a whole story in spanish using the espanol language preference and then I copied and pasted it into a translator to get the whole story in English!"

"This app is really very good and I find it to be very accurate!"

>> Perfect OCR users.

Perfect OCR scans your documents using advanced image-processing algorithms to eliminate uneven lighting and shadows and improve contrast. The result is the clearest and most readable scans possible from the iPhone's camera. Perfect OCR also offers SureScan, our proprietary scanning mode that delivers sharper images with less jitter or smear.

Our unique "Email to myself" feature lets you send documents to a predefined address, or even upload them to an online storage service like Evernote or, with a single tap. Uploading documents to online services via email is fast, secure, and can be done even if you're temporarily off line. Refer to app help for details.

All processing happens on your iPhone, and the confidentiality of your data is never compromised. There is also no subscription fee, and no Internet access is needed to scan documents or run OCR.

    What is with the low battery?


    Update: still trash scans, nothing good. Now it freezes.

    First scan was okay the rest were trash. I total was of my money. I too keep getting a low battery. If I could, I would get my money back.

    Awesome app! Incredibly helpful.


    I am always wanting to write down recipes, notes and etc. This app saves me from all the typing. Works so well for me that I only have to take one picture and the OCR gets all but two or three words. Usually just a edge word that I correct easily, or a bad picture on by part. Well worth the cost.

    Clumsy file management :(


    This app has some potential, the OCR is very good, but the file management is terrible! I don't know what the developers envisaged for how people would use this, but it's perfect for students who are studying out of books, or for authors in general who need a workflow solution for digitizing notes for ease of wordprocessing. What is really frustrating about this program is that it dumps the image file when it processes the OCR! There's a tiny window before you press the "main" button where you can email yourself the jpg and the text, but after that it's gone forever. So stupid! If you're going quickly and you have a lot to do, there's no point correcting every tiny error in OCR, and being able to recover the original picture file is critical. Also, I made the mistake of using the title of each OCR for storing the page number for purposes of citation later, but the file is just called a generic "document.txt", which now that I have hundreds of notes is completely useless (making them sequential doesn't help). There's no way to export the titles with the text files unless you extract them from the xml file or email titles, which is again just unnecessarily difficult. The documents should have the same title as the user gives them inside the GUI (duh). Please add these obvious features for the serious user and get rid of the wood finish interface and I'll give you 5 stars!
