The User Experience

The Sumrize app has been made specifically for all those people who don't have the time or desire to read through the full text. Of course you can't take the chance of missing the details and you won't have to with this app. You will be able to use a picture from your Library or you can take one from within the app. Once you have created a summary you can save it so you can refer to it at any time. The app uses its own high-tech algorithms and OCR technology in order to create the summary. You can also select a specific area only if you like by using the select tool.
