Essentially, I’m referring apps that uses the phone’s camera to take a picture of particular documents, receipts and notes etc… and either save them on the phone or convert them to a different format. Few apps that comes to mind: https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/genius-scan-pdf-scanner/id377672876?mt=8 |
and Google’s instant translate function ( which instantly translates text in real time using camera app)
My question is how exactly do you take the data (photo) and save it as a pdf? what are the apple frameworks involved? obviously you need AVFoundation to access the camera, but what’s next? im pretty lost…
I want to be able to take the data (photo), extract the information presented on the photo then present this info in a useful manner.
Thanks for reading!
