Ocular - OCR PDF Scanner

share:

TrueBlou today is pleased to announce Ocular 1.0. The app allows iPhone/iPad and iPod touch users to scan multi page documents and store them directly on their device. Scans can be transformed into editable text files using the built-in OCR functions. The scans, edited text files and photos can be converted into PDF files and shared by email, print, iMessage, AirDrop and the built-in Wi-Fi Server. Ocular is available exclusively on the Apple App Store for USD $1.99.

Ocular has been designed with ease of use in mind yet includes many sharing features, its own feature rich text editor which can be used to create documents or edit converted scans. A Wi-fi server to quickly copy documents, PDFs and scans to a desktop computer or other internet enabled device and being iCloud enabled allows Ocular to keep all of its scanned documents and text files in sync across many iOS devices.

Ocular takes great advantage of the camera in the iOS devices and uses advanced algorithms to enhance image quality. Users can further choose from three preset image filters to make text sharper and clearer. Ocular currently converts scanned files into editable text documents in 14 languages.

Ocular supports a number of ways to share the PDF documents it creates. The PDFs can be synced using iCloud, sent by email, iMessage, AirDrop, printed and transferred to Mac or PC over Wi-Fi.

All of the processing done by Ocular is performed entirely on the users device. This means no data at all is sent to us or any other third party. A users documents remain completely safe and secure. Indeed the only time an internet connection is used is to perform sync functions with iCloud.

Pricing and Availability:
Ocular is available exclusively on the Apple App Store at $1.99 (USD) in the Business category. Ocular is compatible with iPhone/iPad and iPod touch devices running iOS 7.0 and later and equipped with a camera.
