About CTRL-F - Search the real world
Stop tracing your finger through long documents - CTRL-F allows you to quickly search all types of printed texts: Books, magazines, user manuals, and everything else you can think of!
To search a document, simply scan the page using your device's camera. The app then analyses the document and you'll be able to search within it after a few seconds, just like you would with a digital document and CTRL-F on a PC!
* Search any printed document!
* Export as a fully searchable PDF
* Searches texts in over 50 languages
* Free and without ads
For best results, please make sure the document is well-lit. Use the flash, if possible. Keep the camera steady - if the image turns out blurry, taking a new picture is often quicker than using the blurry image.
Please note: CTRL-F doesn't work with handwritten notes and can occasionally be stumped by very strange fonts. Please let us know via e-mail if you've got feedback or questions!
