Skootch is the brilliant new app which converts photos to editable text documents and PDFs, as well as posting images and text straight to Facebook.
- Free to download
- Free to post to Facebook
- Buy in-app credits to convert images of text to editable text documents or PDFs; only pay for what you use
Download it from the App Store or www.mutantsoftware.co.uk.
Using fast and highly accurate optical character recognition (OCR) technology, Skootch is great for writing projects, presentations, references and any other time you need to create, backup or share text.
You can Skootch images from your built-in camera, pictures from your photo library or screen captures of maps, information or interesting pages from the internet. Take screen captures by pressing and holding the round Home button on the front of your phone and then pressing the Sleep button on the top. Skootch the images to extract the text as an editable .txt or PDF document which you can then send via email. Alternatively you can annotate and post the images quickly and easily to Facebook, keeping your personal or corporate Facebook page up to date. Brilliant!
Buy in-app credits through iTunes to perform text conversions; the more credits you buy, the less you pay per conversion. One credit converts one image.
- £0.59 = 5 credits
- £1.79 = 20 credits
- £4.99 = 60 credits
- £9.99 = 140 credits
The ‘Saved Scans’ section contains all the files you have converted using Skootch. Once you have converted a file you can download it in different formats from here. Internet connection is required for Skootch to work. Focused, well lit photos will give optimal results. Skootch works best on iPhone 4 due to its’ high resolution camera but it will run on your 3/3G/3GS if you download the iPhone 4 software from iTunes.

Skootch is the first software release from Mutant Software Ltd and is the brainchild of Doctor/Inventor/Entrepreneur Toby Bateson. He hopes you think it’s as great as he does.
