    Looking for an app where I can take a pic (got the droid x 8MP camera) and want to take pic of a text document and have it convert the text to a text file?

    I found these:

    Alchemy Snap - Android app on AppBrain

    Alchemy Clip - Android app on AppBrain

    They don't get much in the way of reviews. I'm surprised there's even such an app for Android. Good OCR software is typically not cheap.

    OCR Reader might do the trick.
