I can use this app very much the same way I use Google Keep, which is great.


One thing it doesn't seem to do is the absolute godsend that makes Google Keep special- when you search for a keyword, it doesn't just search the comments you entered for that picture, it searches the words it sees in the picture itself.


Example, when I take pictures of dataplates or business cards, I don't have to write in the comments section.  I know when i search for that company name, Keep will scan all the pictures and find the words it needs to.  It happens instantly, and it's wonderful. 


Any plans to implement this type of feature?

Hi @NickY,

Thank you for writing to us.

I believe you are mentioning the fact that the search works, but it does not search the text from within an image file. 

I will discuss this with our Product Team. This post will be updated when we get updates from them.



Yes that is all I am saying.    Would be a great feature to add!   Thank you

We are starting to work on automatically performing OCR (optical character recognition) to extract the text from images and PDFs in order to make them searchable.


Excellent!  Great news.
