Image to Text Document Converter App for Android and iPhone

Have you ever encountered a scenario where you are required to convert image to word. The world is completely dependent on gadgets at this time. There is a software for almost every task that we are performing manually. However, we are not aware of the existence of those mobile apps or web apps. Here, I am going to share my review on one such mobile app called Image to Text App for Android and iPhone.

It is either converting your business card or converting the page of a book or any other printed material, you can convert them in few seconds (in paid version) if you have access to an android phone or iPhone.

The technology used behind the image to text conversion is called OCR (Optical Character Reading). The text printed on an image is converted to an editable text format. This technology helps us to convert any image to text. In my personal experience, I am also working on Amazon mechanical turk. There are few tasks where the bills are provided as images and we need to feed those values in the corresponding boxes. With the help of OCR Softwares like Image to Word, the task is made easy.

I figured out the Image to Word app as one of the best OCR apps available. Few reasons why I love image to word app are:

  • Simple and clean interface
  • The memory size of the app is less than 3 MB.
  • It has the option to take a photo using your phone’s camera or upload a photo from gallery.
  • It is available for both android and (iPad) operating systems
  • The conversion takes place virtually on their server and hence the task will not be interrupted due to your internet issues.
  • In free version, the time taken to convert one image to text is almost one hour. But, the file is converted.
  • In paid version, the conversion happens in seconds.

You can install the image to word converter application from play store or from your pc to mobile phone. Please refer to my guide for installing android apps.
