Built at HackMHS
Almost everyday day at school I see kids scrambling to open their hw folder because of the teacher forgetting until last minute. Wouldn't it be better if the kid could simply take out their phone, take a picture, and instantly have it on their in-app planner?
What it does
By taking a picture, the Inputted OCR algorithm will scan the picture for any text. It will then let you choose which class to put it into and when it is due
How I built it
I used Swift in XCode to create this mobile app.
Challenges I ran into
The iphone would glitch whenever using the tesseract algorithm, therefore I had to use the XCode simulator and a pre-shot image to run tesseract
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The OCR that was able to read all of the text
What I learned
Improved my fundamentals of Swift Learned about Cocoapods Learned about Tesseract OCR
