Prizmo Go 2.0 – Instant Text OCR for iPhone and iPad

Creaceed announces today the release of Prizmo Go version 2.0, a major upgrade to their text capture app for iPhone and iPad. Prizmo Go 2.0 brings a new, more powerful, built-in neural network-based OCR in more languages, cloud-based handwriting recognition (English only), and translation to 59 languages.


Prizmo Go 2.0 is an innovative app that lets the user take a picture of printed or handwritten text and then recognizes it using optical character recognition (OCR) technology, avoiding the frustration of retyping it on screen. Part of said text can then be selected directly from the photo by swiping through it. Users can then interact with it or just copy/paste it to other apps or to the Mac.


Recognized text can be edited within the application, or read aloud with built-in speech synthesis. Information detected in the text such as website urls, phone numbers, email addresses, QR codes, or physical addresses can be specifically activated. Text translation to 59 languages is also available as a new feature of version 2.0.


Blind and low-vision users can also take full advantage of Prizmo Go 2.0, as not only does it propose extensive support for VoiceOver but it also brings specific features such as pre-shooting instructions, automatic angle correction, and automatic text-to-speech playback.


Prizmo Go 2.0 also introduces a new subscription model, as an addition to pre-existing options that remain valid (see details below).


New features in 2.0:
* Cloud OCR option in 26 languages, including Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Arabic

Cloud OCR requires units to be operated, units that can be purchased directly within the app: 100-pack is $0.99, 1000-pack is $4.99 (USD).


Premium Plan is a new subscription option introduced with version 2.0 that unlocks all the features of the Export Pack and allows unlimited use of Cloud OCR recognition (print and handwriting) as well as a new cloud-based text translation to 59 languages (exclusive feature).

DEVONthink To Go 2.4.3 Now Available

DEVONtechnologies updates its mobile document and information manager DEVONthink To Go with synchronization enhancements and more. Version 2.4.3 synchronizes its databases in the background when the user switches to another app. The update improves sync status reliability, too, as well as compatibility to some WebDAV services. It’s also faster, more reliable, and uses less memory. The update to version 2.4.3 is free and recommended for all users.


DEVONthink To Go 2.4.3 Now Available


DEVONthink To Go is DEVONtechnologies’ document and information management solution for iOS. Serving as repository for a large variety of data types it lets users keep their important documents with them at all times. It offers a rich set of organizing features as well as built-in viewers and editors for many file formats. Document provider and file provider extensions make documents available in other apps, and an encrypted synchronization keeps all data in sync with other iOS devices as well as with its Mac counterpart, DEVONthink, without compromizing the user’s privacy.


Use DEVONthink To Go to put all your text files, PDFs, notes, images, and bookmarks into your pocket and have them at hand even when you are not connected to your office network or the internet:

  • Take your documents with you
  • Organize your data on the go
  • Use super-fast full text search
  • Sync locally, via WebDAV, or Dropbox


What’s new in DEVONthink To Go 2.4.3:
The update to version 2.4.3 is all about improving the usability and reliability of the built-in synchronization. When the user switches to another app, DEVONthink To Go uploads changes and retrieves new data unless the user chose to synchronize manually. Should the user lock the device, iOS immediately removes access to all encrypted data on disk. In this case DEVONthink To Go stops the synchronization quietly and retries when the user brings it again to the foreground.


Further enhancements include basic authentification for bookmarks and better compatibility to some WebDAV services. Downloading documents is more reliable, too, and so is the sync status indicator. Finally, the update improves the performance, reduces the memory usage, and fixes bugs and glitches. It’s free and highly recommended for all users.

DEVONthink To Go is available world-wide for $14.99 USD (or the equivalent amount in other currencies) through the iOS App Store in the Productivity category. Some features require a one-time in-app purchase. [GET IT HERE]
