Save time and avoid hassle by reading and recognising numbers automatically. With Number Scanner you no longer have to type in, write down or remember long phone numbers - simply use the camera on your Android device to quickly scan the number you want, and Number Scanner will recognise the digits for you automatically, accurately, and within seconds. You can then phone that number, add it to your contacts, or copy and paste it into another application or document.
Number Scanner runs entirely on your Android device - unlike almost all other Android OCR (optical character recognition) software, it does NOT require a network connection to a server and does not waste your money or bandwidth, nor does it share or upload your numbers with any service or organisation.
Use Number Scanner to take the hassle out of numbers by scanning them with a single finger tap - use it on business cards, directories, contact details in leaflets or adverts, or anything that has the number you want without the need to type. It also works on other kinds of number you may need to note down quickly, such as product codes, serial numbers, zip codes, and so on.

Usage:
(1) Hold your Android device over the text with the number you want to scan. Position it such that the number (and nothing else) appears in Number Scanner's focussing window. If necessary, you can change the size of the focussing window by moving the boxes in its corners.
(2) Make sure the number is in focus. If your device doesn't have auto-focus and you are trying to scan a number with small print when holding the camera close, you may need to change the camera settings to "macro" mode. Scanning also works much better when there is good lighting.
(3) Tap the camera icon to take a picture of the number. Number Scanner will analyse the image you took and recognise and display the number within a few seconds. You can then tap the number to add it to your contacts, make a phone call, or copy it into another application.
(4) Recognition works best on numbers written in large clear fonts with good contrast (i.e. dark numbers on light background or vice versa). If there was a problem with the recognition, then simply correct any errors or try again. Number Scanner is designed for printed numbers, although clear handwritten numbers (not joined-up) are also often recognised. Number Scanner also recognises certain symbols like the "+" used for international dial codes.
(5) To take a new image, simply press the 'back' button on your Android device.

Good but needs to be fixed on digits that are bold This application doesnt recognise numbers that are in BOLD, I hope for an update soon because I love what It does

Got an update! Now the app works like a charm! :-)

Great little app! Excellent little app, very useful and easy to use, works well and does not even need a network connection, so no extra costs.

A useless toy This is practically unusable in any scenario without appearing as a freak. Why does it has flash in always ON mode? And why is only landscape mode?

Great app Just what I'd been looking for. Scans quickly, accurately and doesn't need a connection so no data charges. The best app of its kind.

Does what it says on the tin! I put the box the number on a business card, and it grabs the number. Sometimes I have to jiggle around a bit to get the number in the box, but it's still a time saver. And it seems to do this without any data connection, which is a big plus over the likes of goggles. It actually worked for my handwriting too, but I was being quite careful. I'd quite like to be able to turn on the macro focus mode from the app, but I'm guessing this is tricky to do for all devices. Anyway, a nice little app.

Great value Really works well once you''ve gotten used to holding it steady when taking a pic

No problem Works well, no frills but no fuss.

Exactly what I needed, but doesn't work I installed this on my LG G3. It was exactly what I was looking for, even gives you the option to recognize letters as well. But, it couldn't even recognize decent sized serial numbers printed on white backgrounds...the most basic thing! I really wanted this to work. Oh well.
