OCR for iPhone Developers

ABBYY’s OCR technology automatically transforms images of text and documents captured with a camera into editable and searchable text, eliminating the need to input information manually. For example, using a camera phone with an OCR application, business cards, clippings from magazines, books, receipts, ads and other documents can be captured and automatically converted into text, which may then be edited, stored or sent via email or SMS. It can also be used in other mobile and PC applications including notepads, calendars and so on.

“iPhone’s developer community has been growing very rapidly and there are tens of thousands of applications available for this platform worldwide today,” said Katya Solntseva, director of mobile products department at ABBYY. “In order to be competitive, application developers need new, unique features which are truly useful for a broad audience. With ABBYY’s Mobile OCR Engine SDK, developers can create solutions ranging from simple business card reading applications that automatically store the contact information on the mobile phone’s address book, to more complex business tools which support integration with various enterprise solutions such as CRM or ECM. The possibilities for mobile solutions are endless.”

Moreover, because the ABBYY Mobile OCR SDK supports many popular mobile platforms, including Windows® Mobile, Symbian®, Linux®, Android and now iPhone, developers will benefit from using the same OCR technology to create high quality applications for a variety of platforms and devices. This minimizes the developers’ dilemma to use SDKs from different providers for different platforms.

ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine 3.0 was designed with the needs of mobile solution providers in mind, combining strong platform support with powerful technology innovations to optimize software performance and accuracy, while minimizing its footprint on hardware resources. The SDK provides powerful recognition capabilities including intelligent analysis algorithm to ensure accurate and fast OCR processing, advanced capabilities to reproduce the structure of original text and a range of image pre-processing features such as skew correction and image binarization.

ABBYY Mobile OCR SDK recognizes text in 58 languages including Latin, Cyrillic and Greek characters, enabling creation of multilingual solutions. In addition, integrated business card reader dictionaries for 16 languages and their business card formats are also available as part of the SDK.

ABBYY Mobile OCR Engine was recently awarded the Silver Mobile Star from MobileVillage® for the Best Enterprise Software: Data Capture/Collection.

I think people claim for every little thing these days and it is really no need to.In the company section Malwarebytes has designed the items as per the needs of the section. As the needs of method and small companies (SMBs) are different from the huge companies, hence they have released items as per the need. They provide the Anti - Viruses foundation with 1-99 permits, preferably best for the needs of SMBs. This is suitable with all recognized Malwarebytes review. It has many innovative functions not available in the Home inclusion to match the needs of SMBs so as to give fantastic rights to details of other important company details from strike of any malware.
