    Scanthing (OCR & PDF Creator)'s review

    Published: 2012-03-07, by .

    Scanthing allows you to scan any document from your gallery or using your back camera

    • Text extraction from scanned documents
    • Extract by batches
    • Supports up to 33 languages (Google Translate)
    • Interface could be improved
    • It doesn't convert documents to different formats

    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.

    UPDATE It NO LONGER WORKS! It ran just ONCE, and then HUNG It seemed to work well - albeit via the Internet & their Server, but quickly & pretty accurately. Just hope that continues, and that the "doom sayer" comments made by others are just a reflection of (other) User incompetence!

    If I could rate this app as zero stars I would. No customer support, and message for several days saying their server was down, rendering the app TOTALLY USELESS, as it needs to upload text to perform OCR. A total waste of time. Avoid.
