Completely New User Experience
The user interface has been finely crafted with retina-optimized visuals for a pleasurable user experience.
Universal app designed for the following devices with iOS 6.1 or higher: iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, iPad 3, 4, and iPad mini.
Seamless experience across devices: Shoot with iPhone, edit with iPad, and finalize on Mac. iCloud enables you to share work-in-progress documents across all your devices automatically.
Improved Camera Operation
Prizmo includes sound feedback for image stabilization. This feature helps you avoid taking blurry pictures, which typically prevent performing OCR accurately.
Many Export Formats
PDF (text only, and image and searchable text), JPEG, PNG, vCard, TXT. JPEG and PDF output quality/file size can be adjusted in the settings.
Various Export Destinations
Export to any compatible app/service installed on your iPhone/iPad like Evernote, Dropbox, Google Drive, Box, etc.
Real-time Page Detection
The page or business card frame is automatically detected while shooting, which makes manual cropping optional (but still possible if needed).
Cropping tool now snaps to page edges, and provides a loupe for accurately positioning page corners. Convenient for correcting perspective.
Advanced Image Enhancement
Prizmo works like a perfect scanner. It includes perspective correction, brightness and contrast adjustment, text color inversion (i.e. dark vs. light characters). All editing is non-destructive and can be reverted.
Beautiful Image Cleanup
Remove uneven lighting and paper texture for a nice black text on white background. Prizmo even supports color cleanup to preserve marker colors for whiteboard shots.
GPU-optimized Image Processing
Core Image and OpenGL technologies have been used at their best. They guarantee image processing at maximum speed and quality on mobile devices.
Extremely fast and powerful OCR engine, for highly accurate text recognition in 40+ languages. (1, 2)
Advanced Editing Capabilities
Text regions can be user-corrected (add, delete, merge, resize, and reorder).
Text documents can be re-OCR'ed in real time as well. Move a region around some text, and look at it as it is magically recognized.
Scan several pages into a Prizmo document, and export it as a single PDF file.
Business Card Scanning
Streamlined processing: business card recognition, labeling, correction, and export. Save to the Contacts application, or send as vCard.
The Quick capture mode skips document creation to quickly copy some text out of a picture to the clipboard, or to read it out loud.
VoiceOver Support All Over
Full VoiceOver support, from document management to image capture, text recognition, voice reading, and export.
Voice Guidance to Help Locate the Page
Prizmo gives specific instructions (up, down, left, back, etc.) to help position the camera above the document, until a 'Ready to shoot' instruction is pronounced.
High-quality Voice Reader
Read scanned text out loud with built-in high quality text-to-speech technology developed by Acapela Group S.A. 65 male and female voices in 20 languages are available through the In-App Purchases system.
Text Reading Experience
You can choose voice and speaking rate, and Prizmo will start reading the text. There are several controls like phrase by phrase navigation, and each word is highlighted as it is spoken.
Built-in Text Translation
Scan a text in French, get it translated into English or Russian right within Prizmo (using Microsoft Translate web-based service - internet connection required).
41 translation languages are available. (3)
Other apps can invoke Prizmo to scan and return text, or to initiate text reading in Voice Player. Prizmo can be integrated into any workflow (handled through callback URLs).
