Great OCR application - I've been evaluating the trial version available on their website and that has convinced me to purchase the full version. Previously I tried two other brands and OCRKit really stood out. I had to OCR a number of difficult mixed-language documents filled with technical acronyms, and it did the best job by far. Also, it wasn't one of my original criteria, but when I found out that OCRKit supports applescript I was able to automate much of my work. I was going to buy it anyway, so that is really just icing on the cake.
Doesn't Work - I purchased this app because it seemed in comparison to other choices in the App Store to actually work most of the time. However, that is not my experience. Of the three pdfs I've now tried to run through the app, none of them have come out successfully with the OCR having worked. In some cases, there are words (or part of words) here or there that are searchable/annotatable, but overall my pdfs came out of the app in the exact same condition as I put them in. Waste of $50. I want my money back. If there is a good OCR product on the Apple market, I haven't found it yet, and if this is what they're peddling for $50, I'll stick with the free ones that only work half the time.

Hasn’t worked for a while... - When I bought this program a couple years ago, it was great — it reliably turned scanned pdfs into searchable, annotatable documents. For at least the past six months, however, it has ceased to work. The text comes out so blurry it’s unreadable. I’ll be looking for a new OCR now...
