DivvyUp with OCR tech updated for Windows Phone, brings Lens support and more for the end of your meal

A little over a month we showed you guys a really cool app for Windows Phone 8 called DivvyUp. It’s super useful, features beautiful UI, and is only on Windows Phone. That makes it an instant win for us. The latest update brings some handy new features. Let’s check it out.

Head to the Windows Phone Store and you’ll see version of DivvyUp ready for you. The app is perfect for the end of meals, it helps split checks, calculate tip and more. By far the coolest feature is using the camera to scan your using and have it all done automatically using optical character recognition (OCR). Here’s what’s new in the latest update:

  • Added a camera lens so app can launch directly into OCR
  • Hold down menu items to pin them to start screen
  • Added new setting to toggle auto-itemize instructions
  • Misc. bug fixes and enhancements

By far the most useful feature in the latest update is the Lens support. The OCR tech works great with DivvyUp, now you can just jump to that feature by pressing the camera button and selecting the DivvyUp Lens. The various other additions are fairly routine, but do add up overall to make this app even better.

DivvyUp is a great app and totally worth picking up. At least download the free app and play around with it a bit. There is a $0.99 in-app purchase that unlocks some cool features (like the OCR magic). Grab it in the Store for Windows Phone 8 devices, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app.
