The KNFB Reader for iOS is nearly here....

The KNFB Reader app is nearly here and boasts a great array of features. Two of the features that will be useful to many people are the book mode, allowing a user to scan multiple pages extremely quickly, and the ability to do OCR at a distance (for example on PowerPoint slides from up to 25 feet away)!

Once scanned users can navigate by word, sentence etc. and multiple languages are supported, with the app automatically detecting them and being able to perform translation.

All in all we think this app is going to be fantastic, and although pricey at $99 it will be worth every penny if it works as advertised. So far it has received glowing reviews, stay tuned for our own review as soon as it is released!
