Prizmo Go

Creaceed

Aim at text. Shoot. It's yours! Prizmo Go lets you quickly grab printed text with the camera. After text is recognized in a blink of an eye, you can interact with it in many useful ways. Or just send it to other apps. And if you've got a Mac, you can even copy/paste it there (*). No more retyping. Feels like magic, just at your finger tips.

About Creaceed

Our company was founded in 2008, and is based in Mons, Belgium. Belgium hosts Europe capital city Brussels, and is well known for its chocolates, waffles, and beers (yeah, those are wonderful). But Belgium is also a country with a strong tradition for science & engineering.

Here at Creaceed, we're a small team of 4 people, and we are passionate about app development. We focus on making a few great apps that solve specific problems in elegant ways. We like to make our own technology but at the same time keep that complexity away from users and focus on usability.

Many people ask us, what does that mean, “Creaceed” ? Well, it's the result of some thinking ;-). “Crea-“ stands for creativity, as we want to make apps for creative people. “-ceed” like ex-ceed, suc-ceed, comes from Latin “cedere”, meaning “to give way for” or “to go”. That also inspires the ‘seed’-like logo.

Features

Aim at text. Shoot. It's yours! Prizmo Go lets you quickly grab printed text with the camera. After text is recognized in a blink of an eye, you can interact with it in many useful ways. Or just send it to other apps. And if you've got a Mac, you can even copy/paste it there (*). No more retyping. Feels like magic, just at your finger tips.

Additionally, Prizmo Go provides rich interactions with the captured text. After shooting, text from the original picture is revealed, and swiping through it allows fast and accurate text selection directly from the image. Selected text can then be read aloud, or you can tap to browse to any printed website address, call phone numbers, trigger Mail app from an email address, or even reveal physical address in Apple Maps and initiate navigation to that place.

Prizmo Go comes with enhancements specifically built for VoiceOver, in addition to spoken guidance prior to shooting. That, combined with its text-to-speech capabilities, make it a great companion in case you need help reading printed documents.

Note: Prizmo Go won't let you create PDF documents. If that's what you need, please refer to the standard version of Prizmo.
