sounds really interesting.
I've tried it on my i900. Here are the results

- connexion to internet for add and banner (ok, it doesn't disturb me). May be you should inform the users about that.

- I was blocked at the first screen, with the texte to donate. The continue button was grayed. I've waited for several minutes, clicked on the black screen... which will not disapear. Finaly I click on the link at the bottom of the banner (at the end the page of free-ocr.net) and then the continue button comes black and I can go on. [i]So maybe you have to inform users what they have to do to be able to continue (wait or click,...).[i]

- taking picture works well. Loading picture works as well. As I've found, the taken picture was saved on the software install directory, named img.jpg. And if I want to use another option I have to rechoose the jpg one... but if I will not have my PC connected I will not have found the place of the picture. May be you can inform, on the warning/info popup message that, if a img.jpg file exists, that this can be used, or where the picture can be found.

- question : does the img.jpg file be deleted ?

- with french texts on picture, the OCR gives nothing as hieroglyphs.

Else, a really great application which ask to be magnified !

keep up this good job

Study material for Mossad Academy in Hertzlyia Pituach

Should we trust this program?
And send scanned our private documents as exercise material for Mossad academy in Hertzlyia Pituach?

I was there (lived in Hertzlyia Pituach almost a year in 1987-1988)

However, due to nowadays international situation, I personally should not trust this program.

Why sending SOMEWHERE my private documents??
Want to make money of your program, make it save locally (on device!).
