On the Phone
Unlike other offerings, OCRKit performs all image processing including the OCR directly on your iPhone. No image data is transferred to servers over the air, your data plan is saved and OCRKit just works while abroad.
The OCR requires a sharp image with macro focus, and thus works best with the iPhone 3G, iPhone 4/4S and iPad 3. Older iPhones will only yield recognition results if used with a close-up lens case, such as Griffin's Clarifi.
The 5 mega-pixel camera starting with the iPhone 4 and OCRKit can potentially replace an entry-level portable scanner for roadwarriors working with paper documents abroad.
We recommend using OCRKit with the iPhone 4/4S or iPad 3.
