It allows to edit and furthermore copy and paste the text to other iPhone applications. 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.
OCRKit is developed with the main focus on usability and simple to use. By taking a picture of a document, letter, contract, poster, note or business card it recognizes the text and shows it on the screen. Ready for processing, which allows you to further edit and work with the text. Copy and paste it to another apps and exchange it with friends and colleagues. It helps you to easily bring graphical information fast and into a textual form on your iPhone.
