Question

Address Scanning App?

by MochaLatte411 / May 23, 2013 4:25 PM PDT

I'm in college and deliver pizza. I use navigation on my phone a lot, and as such, have to type in the addresses all the time. It gets tedious, especially because most of the streets aren't in autocorrects language.

It would be so convenient for me if I could just use my camera to scan the receipt, and have my phone recognize the address and navigate to it for me.

Has anyone heard of an app that does something like this?

.....product in mind, but I was wondering if the OP could save the address as a QR code and then scan it with his phone that it might solve the problem. Just thinking.
