MobiReader Pro iPhone App Review – Great Tool with Less Perfection to Manage Paper Works

Managing the business cards and important documents on the purse or table is really an exhausting work right? Of course, if you are someone who used to manage lots of cards and documents (Especially for the business people), MobiReader Pro can a right choice on your iPhone.

The camera is based on the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to scan the cards and documents. I have tried some cards and documents with the app and the results were not much satisfying comparing the other apps like Business Card Reader and Worldcard Mobile, which does little more clear recognition.

So what MobiReader Pro does more than others? Apart from the scanning quality this app has some nice features like, image to PDF conversion and an Augmented Reality (AR) feature to spot a particular address on your camera view. Also, it offers translation of the scanned results to 54 languages and supports scanning of cards from English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Russian.

You can scan the card or documents by simply aligning them into the scanner area. There are two options to capture; by default an auto capture, when the card fits the scan screen and a manual capture. You can change these options from the Settings. The captured results are stored into your address book and you can edit them if needed. As I said, the recognition quality was very poor. I am not sure what was wrong, my guess is the app needs the cards or documents in pre-defined styles.

MobiReader Pro has its own storage area to store the scanned cards and documents. There are options to store the cards and documents separately. Or else you can pass them to your Google docs as well. Once stored you can easily mail or call them directly from these folders.

Image to PDF conversion is a good choice from the developers. It works pretty decently. App design and user interface are clear. You can set the fields while scanning a card by changing them from the settings option. Apart from the OCR failure (But that was the much needed to improve) this app is a great tool to clean your pockets or working tables from papers.

MobiReader Pro is available on the app store for $3.99
