"Your paper-less life starts right here"

What's more, Scanthing extracts text from pictures and documents and allows you to search by keywords on your phone using OCR tech. Scan cards, newspapers articles, letters, full articles, pictures... whatever you need. Actually text extraction is its added-value feature. However, unlike other scanning apps, it doesn't includes conversion to different formats. Anyway, we must insist that its OCR tech seems really above average.

After capturing the document, you can rotate and crop the text you want to extract. Bear in mind that it works with all kinds of typefaces but not with handwriting. It works along Google Translate, so it supports up to more than 30 languages. After scanning you can search for your documents by means of the search bar at the top. What's more, you can convert by batches and after that associate tags to your documents.

In a nutshell, this a useful app if what you want to do is an specific thing: extracting text from scanned documents. As scanner itself, there are other more complete apps on the Android Market. However, the most of them don't extract text or don't do it better than Scanthing. For this reason, it's well worth to give it a go.
