When you are on a business trip, you are always told to keep track of your receipts, but that can be extremely hard to do in practice. As part of its new wave of Microsoft Garage app releases, Microsoft has launched a new Windows Phone app, Receipt Tracker, that uses Optical Character Recognition (OCR) to extract information from photos of receipts.
That's not all it does, however. Microsoft says:
" Receipt Tracker allows users to categorize and visualize their expenses into organized collections of receipts which can then be emailed or sent to OneNote."
The app was created by team members at the Microsoft Foundry Intern Program in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
