    I did use Scanboot before to iOS to scan documents etc.
    Basiclly what Scanboot does is that you import a image and then Scanboot make it black and white and with OCR tech it "clean" it up and makes it to a PDF-document.

    It's really good but I don't have any iOS device anymore so that's the issue.
    But I can't find any application for it to OS X.

    Does someone have any ide?

    that was really expensive - can't see why they have that prices as the mobile application does a good job for like 1 USD.

    They're made for different markets. One is for consumers to scan business cards, receipts, notes, and pieces of paper with your phone's camera. The other is for professionals to have pristine copies of paperwork, books, etc that depends highly on accurate OCR.

    Yeah I do understand that but ScanBoot on the iPhone are not just for business cards it's for much more then that.

    But I guess that I need to purchase it as I need the application.

    I just bought scanbot for the same purpose and one day later Microsoft OneNote did a free update offering OCR support however I read it takes up to five minutes a pic to pull text from it.

    Maybe you can upload multiple images or take multiple images and come back to it later?

    Anyways it's free and available on all apple computing devices.
