Introducing fooView | Your Floating Pal for Android

    imagefooView Text Recognition 

fooView [Google Play] is an Android App that I used recently. One incredible useful feature I found on this app is the Optical Characters Recognition (OCR) . Although I can’t say it works well with handwritten text but it is able to accurately recognize printed/Computer text. What make it worth installing is that the Text Recognition works offline. 
1) Screen Capture and Edit
2) Text Recognition [Work Offline]
3) Translate/Search Selected Text or Images
3) Gestures (You can configure the Float Icon to Turn Off The Screen or Switch on the flash light etc)
6) Built-in Viewers, Players, Downloader
7) and More…

Personal Tips
1) You can obtain better OCR results if you use it together with scanner app like CamScanner, ScanBot etc. Although the scanners app I mentioned do have OCR feature but it doesn’t work as well as the OCR in this Android App.
2) Install Google Translate App to get better translation experience.
3) You could also use this to select text on app or website that have text selection restriction.
4) You can configured so it auto-disable itself when running certain apps [Under Settings ⇨Float Icon]
5) The apps will also read the QR code of the selection when used, ps, you can use it to get your wifi passwords from QR code if you forgotten it.

Here a Official Demo video demonstrating how to use it
