Mons, Belgium – Creaceed today is proud to announce the release of Prizmo 3 on the App Store worldwide. Prizmo, the best scanning/OCR app for iPhone and iPad, was completely redesigned for taking full advantage of iOS 7. Prizmo comes with iCloud support, so that you can start processing a document on your iPhone, and finish it on your Mac. As particular attention was paid to accessibility, Prizmo is also a valuable tool for the visually-impaired, students with learning disabilities, and dyslexic children.
Prizmo offers a streamlined approach to document processing: scan with a camera, recognize the text, edit, export. With Prizmo, you can skip any of these steps and go straight to the results, or instead dive into advanced editing if document requires it (brightness correction, readability improvement, multiple languages, OCR regions editing, text correction, etc.). Export options include PDF with searchable text, and allow sending to various cloud services, like Dropbox, Box, SkyDrive, Google Drive or Evernote. Prizmo also allows processing and editing business cards, and then exports them to your contacts.
“We want to raise the bar of document scanning on iOS devices, and hope our users will like it as much as we do. We worked really hard throughout the summer to make version 3.0 which was initially scheduled for next year, and we propose it as a free upgrade.” says Raphael Sebbe, CEO.
