I want to ctrl-f my written notes

What it does

Take a photo with our iOS app and we'll convert the photo with text on it to a latex pdf that can be searched on our web application

How I built it

iOS(swift), Flask(python) for server, js for front-end, tesseract for OCR, MongoDB for queries

Challenges I ran into

lol the technology for OCR is not quite there yet

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Integrating our iOS and Web applications

What I learned

MongoDB indexing feature Swift Flask Framework

What's next for Latex my Notes

Automatic categorize notes into collections waiting for open source OCR technologies to get more accurate
