If you use your camera for taking notes, like photos of whiteboards, ads, notes, posters, receipts, business cards etc, PhotoText will certainly ease your life. No more pen and paper needed! PhotoText is the perfect tool when an OCR app is not working well or is too time consuming.

If you have ever tried to recall a phone number from a photo in your phone, you understand the difficulty of trying to memorize a phone number in order to make a call.
----
Open the Photo app ... find the photo, zoom, rotate, memorize, memorize ... start the Phone app ... recall number, start typing the number ... Aaaargh! ... back to the photo app ... Help! - PhotoText to the rescue!
----

Use PhotoText to open a photo and then simply type the text of interest from the photo. Zoom, swipe, pinch, rotate to select the area of interest.

Use the text you wrote to initiate a call, create a contact, create a calendar event, write a text message, internet search, email, twitter. Use copy & paste to use the text in any app. Open maps from latitude/longitude data or an address.

PhotoText requires manual input of the text, as it doesn’t have an OCR (optical character recognition) feature, so don’t expect it to do all of the work for you ;)

Photo notes will be more useful than ever. This is an app that should come standard with every cellphone.

Note: PhotoText is ...
- Not a photo labeling app!
- Not an OCR app!
- Just the perfect tool when you need to read and type text from a photo!
