Text Detective is a fully accessible app that reads text from the camera in your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad within seconds. Point the camera and sort through mail, read menus, cards, product packages, medication labels, and all kinds of other print around you. The text can easily be read, edited, copied and pasted into documents, emails or other apps. It even keeps the text in a history for future use.
Text Detective works best with the clean and crisp text you find in documents, and at a distance of about the length of a forearm. You can use it wherever you go – no need for network coverage – it even works on the plane.
The app is optimized for iPhone 4S or 5, but can be used with iPhone 4 and iPod touch. If you want to use Text Detective on an iPad, please be aware that the camera position is different to the one on the iPhone / iPod, which might require additional training and practice to align the camera lens and align the text.
