Prizmo - Scanning, OCR, and Speech

       iOS Universal

Prizmo 4 for iOS is now available with improved design and workflow, alongside brand new iOS 8 features!

Prizmo is a universal photo-based scanner app that lets you scan and recognize text documents, business cards, and images, and then export them as PDF/Text, vCard, or JPEG/PNG. Prizmo relies on state-of-the-art technologies, like a highly accurate OCR, real-time page detection, and beautiful image cleanup. Using iCloud, you can even shoot the picture on your iPhone, and finish editing on your iPad or Mac. All of this in an elegant and intuitive user experience.

Prizmo is made for everyone, and is thus fully compatible with VoiceOver. It provides voice guidance to help position your iPhone when taking document pictures, and will find the text orientation automatically if it's turned left, right or upside down. Prizmo's quick capture mode provides a fast path from picture to speech synthesis for an improved workflow, and it provides a high-quality voice reader (individual voices available as in-app purchases).

What's new

User feedback integration to fine-tune a number of features (Dana, Richard, Fred, Tiziano, Marcelo). Thank you all for your feedback and help to make a better Prizmo!

Workflow Improvements:
- Changed the quick action "Copy to clipboard" to a more generic "Capture Text" (Marcelo). This now enables previewing (and correcting) the recognized text before copying it to the clipboard, and also permits sending the text to other apps without creating a Prizmo document.
- Restored the black cleanup mode of the previous Prizmo (Dana). There are now 4 cleanup choices [None, Black, Gray, Color] that you can choose from, with Black more suited to text (very high contrast), and Gray/Color more suited to mixed image and text documents.

Enhancements & Bug Fixes:
- Photo extension: image is now saved if the cropping panel was opened while tapping on the Done button.
- Crop tool fix: the magnifier attached to the crop handle now displays preview with correct orientation in all situations (Tiziano).
- Image picker improvement: adaptive layout depending of the device screen estate.
- Fixed PDF quality and dpi matching (Richard). Internal DPI estimate for a PDF document is now more accurate, depending on the included images.
- Fixed PDF Crop Frame (Fred). Some PDF documents could have unusual crop frame that would not be correctly interpreted by Prizmo. They are now correctly handled.
- Selecting an image in the image picker no longer fails in some situations.
- Fixed a crash that could occur while OCR'ing a business card.
