Win a Free Copy of Prizmo 2 from AppStorm!

We just closed our giveaway, and want to say a quick Congrats to our winners: Glendson, Jon, Richard, gustao, and Matt!

If you’ve been looking for the best way to go paperless with your Mac, Prizmo 2 is the app you need in your arsenal. We gave it a 9 in our recent review, and found that it was one of the best OCR apps for the Mac that we’d tried out. With a modern UI and a speedy text deception engine, plus extras like curvature correction and translation, it’s the companion your scanner has been needing.

We’ve got 5 copies of Prizmo to giveaway to our readers, and all you’ll need to do to enter the giveaway is to leave a comment below and let us know what scanner you use to get your documents saved on your Mac. You can also share the contest on Twitter, Facebook, or App.net, and share a link to your post here for an extra entry.

We’ll be closing the giveaway on February 6th, so hurry and get your entry in!

Envato staff or those who have written more than two articles or tutorials for AppStorm are ineligible to enter.


  • Vin

    I’m currently using a CanoScan 656U with Vuescan software—very outdated! Would love to give Prizmo 2 a shot at going paperless!

  • Romeo

    I just use the simplest way to do that… Photo with iPhone and save in my MacPro.. Its not just the best way but it is the only way without paying for an Software/Hardware as a student.

    Hoppe i am one of the lucky winner :)

    I’m also using my iPhone.
    At the moment I am writing my Bachelor Theses and I’ve been using my phone to make some ‘scans’ of the chapters I need.

    With Prizmo I could make them searchabel which would really be a big relief!

  • http://wijou.com Kareem el Buckley

    I use an HP Deskjet F2200. It’s really old, but still kicks!

    I’m using an HP Deskjet, with WiFi. Now I can scan remotely.
    I have Prizmo (1) but not tried yet. I would be delighted to jump directly to newer Prizmo 2.
    I have a list of jobs to be done with it in my mind…

  • yeld

    Similarly to Romeo and Manuel, as a student I also use my iPhone as a document scanner. It is not only cost effective but thanks to iCloud it is also (most of the time) hassle-free. Prizmo would be a welcomed addition thanks to its OCR superpowers. :)

  • William Barrera

    Prizmo 2 will be perfect to achive an evasive goal in my company: To be Paper-free.

  • Leo Kennis

    Currently using a Cancon D2450, Image Capture and PDF OCR X. Would love to replace this with a one-app solution and Prizmo 2 looks awesome for that!

    So I’m in (to win ;-) ).

  • Bruno

    Awesome! Id love to win this.

  • http://mcnight.fr/ McNight

    Hi ! Thanks for the contest !

  • Lawrence

    I use a digital camera to store all my documents.

  • Holger

  • Brice

    I’ve been wanting this for some time but could never get myself to drop the cash. I’ve had the iPhone app for a long time and love it. Would be nice to complete the set!

  • john

    I either use my iphone or the large scanner available in the library at my school

  • Brian B

    I’d use my DSLR, iPad, and hopefully at some point in the near future, a dedicated document scanner.

  • Shaun C.

    To get my documents from the outside world into my computer, I use a Canon CanoScan LiDE 100 (or my iPhone if I’m in a bind) in combination with Image Capture. I’ve been looking for ages for a way to make my pages searchable, and I recall seeing the Prizmo 2 review here on AppStorm and dreamt of hopefully one day being able to purchase it.

    Sadly, the funds haven’t become available as I’m just a student. I’ve resorted to other ways to perform OCR, but they all fall flat and left a lot to be desired. I’d love to be able to show my friends, family and classmates what Prizmo 2 is capable of!

  • http://manmohanjit.com/ Manmohanjit Singh

    I’m in college right now, this would be so helpful. Plus my college is going to be using iPads from now on.

    Hi! Love this website and check on it regularly because it features some cool apps and I have downloaded some. Keep up the good work!

    I am interested in winning this app because I do alot of scaning and saving to my computer for saving papers and important documents and I hate having so much paper clutter.

  • jlambrix

    I always rely on appstorm to provide the best solutions for all things Mac. Prizmo 2 looks perfect for going completely digital. I’d love to use it in my gallery to convert artwork labels and various documentation into our digital database. Thanks for the opportunity!

  • Matt

    I’ve been using a Brother multifunction scanner and on other occasions just have taken a photo with my phone.

  • styfic

    I’m using my Epson SX100, ScanDrop and Evernote. Better scanning software would be appreciated :)

  • Filip

    I use Canon Pixma mx715 all-in-one. ADF with duplex scanning is a lifesaver when trying to go paperless! I only need some good OCR (the one bundled with the scanner is crap).

  • FabiDrive

    Oh cool, this piece of software is so brilliant. It’s beautiful and it works nice.

    Been testing it as demo product for a while, but can’t pay the price.

    So now I’m using Prizmo 2 demo or, if I need a document scanned with more features I have to use my old Adobe Acrobat Pro fallback solution.

    I really hope I can be one of the lucky ones. I tried every OCR solution for the Mac on the market. None of them does its job so nice and Mac-like

  • trashbag666

    i’m using a brother mfc-490cw to scan and print all my stuff – software is the os x integrated.
    i’m a designer and i have an eye on prizmo since a long time to have one professional software for scanning and ocr.
    so it would be great to have it for free.

  • Glen

    I use the HP 8600 Pro All In One at work and home.

  • Egon

    Just in time, I’m currently working hard to get a paperless office. Scan after scan after…

    I use my HP Photosmart wifi printer/scanner or my antique HP Scanjet 4300c. It’s takes up more space than my iMac LOL.

  • Chris

    I have an HP Photosmart printer/scanner combo that works like a charm with the stock OSX scanner application. But as OSX doesn’t offer OCR, Prizmo would be a neat addition to my workflow.

  • Damian deleon

    This will be great for me. As an independent contractor, I deal with a lot of contacts and paperwork. This will be great to assist me in gathering my old paperwork and scanning them to my computer.

    Hello,

    I use two ways to scan my documents. When I’m in the road I use the camera of my IPhone. At home I use the scanner of my HP OfficeJet 6500 and at my workspace I use the scanner of my HP OfficeJet 4500.

    Compliments for the great Sites you offer. And I hope – of course – to win one of the copies.

  • Eddy

    I don’t have a scanner so I use my iPhone or a digital camera.

    I use an Epson NX330 wireless printer/scanner in a home office. When travelling (long trips, frequently, for a not-for-profit org) I use my iphone to snap pics of receipts, etc. This OCR software will be very beneficial.

  • Dennis S

    I use Canon scanner DR-2050C attached to an old PC to do my bulk document scanning to PDF files.

    I use Macs now but I still use PCs to handle legacy Windows programs.

    If my Canon scanner dies I will change over to Mac-compatible scanner.

    However I would like to use my iPhone to do quick and dirty scanning for loose documents.

    I don’t often require OCR, but if Prizmo supports OCR in Chinese it will be a welcome bonus.

  • Chris W.

    I had to leave a Canon MP980 behind when I moved out, so this would be fairly handy, really… at least for grabbing photos and “scanning” them as a temporary cheat…

  • Georgi Kostadinov

    This application is just amazing. I just saw it supports bulgarian which makes it even more awesome. I am using Canon MP620 with the Mac OS X’s scanning software and this app will be a really good addition.

    Thank you for the giveaway! :)

  • Marinus Sanderse

    I’m using an HP Officejet L7680 to scan my documents.
    This one is capable to store the results in PDF format on my QNAP fileserver, where I can pick up the document to store in my iMac iDocument storage, after using the OCRKit.
    This is for me a great solution, everybody in the house can scan their documents or pictures to pick up on the fileserver!

    I use a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i and backup all PDFs via Arq to Amazon S3 and Glacier.

    And here is me thinking scanners are something from the 90′s. Awesome software like this finally makes scanning a useful thing again! I can type with 10 fingers but going bzzzzz done is so much faster…paperless everything here I come!

  • Ed

    I use a HP Officejet Pro 8600, and I scan to a network share on a USB thumbstick plugged into my router. That way I don’t need a computer on. Also this works great to receive faxes and automatically save them as files.
