I'm really not sure what's up with this app. Sure the text is selectable, but not copyable or searchable.

Just converted my first pdf picture document to an editable pdf document! (12 pages long academic article) So helpful though, what they don't tell you is that if you want to convert more than 15 pages they want to charge you.. that is not what it says in the description. Disappointed.. It worked though..

Hitting the OCR button does nothing at all - worthless for my purposes.
