What is OCR Search? An app that scans an image text and does a quick Internet serach on it.

The OCR Search app uses OCR technology to scan for a word and searches various sites, such as Wikipedia, IMDB and All Music, about that search term. This is an experimental app that tests the power of the current Tesseract OCR technology.
