VisuSurfer instantly scans printed web addresses and automatically launches your web browser. Its QR Code scanning like behaviour but with printed web sites - useful in the MANY situations when QR codes are not available. It is intended to work with simple printed urls, like what would be found on a business card or magazine/newspaper advertisement or flyer.
VisuSurfer complements our other scan and launch apps called VisuMapper (map addresses) and VisuCaller (phone numbers). VisuCaller is frequently FREE to download so you can try the OCR technology before you buy - no risk - so download VisuCaller today and try it.
A viewfinder is used to enclose data to be scanned and detected answers are displayed in a list. If an answer is detected multiple times in succession, the App will automatically launch it in your web browser (if enabled in settings). Sometimes, multiple answers will be detected that differ by a character or two. This is where you can double tap the correct detection in the list to launch it in your web browser.
You can also edit detections in the list to correct errors by holding the list item and then editing. You can also share any detection in the list by holding the list item and pressing 'Share'.
After a web address is launched in your web browser, you get back to VisuSurfer by pressing the home button and rechoosing the VisuSurfer App.
The most helpful advice when using this App is to ensure you get familiar with 'tap to focus' and 'swiping' across the screen to clear answers while detecting. Best results are obtained when the data is focused - tap the viewfinder to focus achieves this. As you move the viewfinder rectangle over data, it is possible that errors could happen. Generally, after swiping to clear, the data will be read again instantly and in most cases correctly.
The current version only detects web addresses that contain all English letters (no digits).
