Norfello says DocScanner Mac, a Mac OS X version of the DocScanner iPhone scanning app, is now available on the new Mac App Store.
DocScanner iPhone turns the iPhone into an OCR scanner. The app allows users to take an image from a paper document using iPhone’s camera and it automatically transforms the picture into a clear PDF document that looks like it has been scanned with a flatbed scanner.
DocScanner Mac is an US$14.95 Mac OS X version of the iPhone app. It brings the same functionality to Mac OS X and it now works with any digital camera. Porting the iOS app to Mac OS X allows DocScanner to take advantage of the OpenGL 3D accelerated graphics and fast processor on your Mac. The results are much faster image processing and OCR extraction, says Tuomas Rasila, Founder of Norfello.
