TextGrabber - App Review

How many times have you seen some text that you wanted to share, perhaps putting it into context? The fact is that sharing whole articles often bores the recipient, and tediously copying the desired content is time-consuming for the sender.

This App claims to effectively resolve the issue, as well as, obviously, being useful in a plethora of other circumstances.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Here's an example of how to use the App, having downloaded it.

Simply press the button, having aimed it a newspaper article. This will create an image which you can easily crop and then watch the App scroll down the image and turn it into text. As soon as this happens (and it is very fast), you are presented with the option to translate the text into another language (with excellent results).

This can then be copied and pasted wherever you want, as when as shred directly from the App with Twitter, Facebook, Evernote (nice one), E-mail, or Message.

It really is as easy as that.

The App Costs $5.

If you want to share information, and edit it, this is an App for you.

The App recognises 61 languages; they weren't all tested but the four I did worked fine.

The only irritation is that a solid carriage return is put in at the end of each line but, this is easily dealt with.

The App needs access to your camera and photos.

ACIDS Test Rating:

The call's yours, boredom, time wasting, or appropriate content.
