    Hello,

    When I first got my curve 8310 about a year ago, I remember installing an app or using a service in which I could take a picture of writing (on a piece of paper, a whiteboard, ect...) and then email it to a server or something and get it back about 5 minutes later with my picture transcribed into a text document. I would love to use this again on my 8900, but I can't remember the name of it. I have searched all day and have found nothing. If anyone here knows what I am describing and could give me the name and/or post a link, I would be very grateful.

    Thanks,
    Eric

    Yeah me too. I haven't seen it in a very long time. I have looked on countless webpages and all throughout app world and have found nothing. Im starting to think it may have been discontinued or something.

    I believe the process you are describing is known as "optical character recognition."

    Try searching for that.
