Prizmo – Scanning, OCR, and Speech
Prizmo 4 for iOS is now available with improved design and workflow, alongside brand new features! Prizmo is a universal photo-based scanner app that lets you scan and recognize text documents, business cards, and images, and then export them as PDF/Text, vCard, or JPEG/PNG. Prizmo relies on state-of-the-art technologies, like a highly accurate OCR, real-time page detection, and beautiful image cleanup. Using iCloud, you can even shoot the picture on your iPhone, and finish editing on your iPad or Mac. All of this in an elegant and intuitive user experience.

Snappy for Mac and iOS Snappy is perfect for clipping stuff from your screen, visual note taking, reference information between windows on top of the many creative uses you’ll discover along the way. And because snaps are always visible until dismissed, you don’t have to Alt+Tab all the time, thus keeping your focus intact.
