Quotle App

Smartphones have revolutionized our daily lives. Things that were unheard of a decade ago, are now being made possible by innovations in smartphone technology. Apps have a major role to play, in transforming the way we carry out day-to-day tasks. While millions of apps are being launched around the world, only a few manage to capture the interests of a large audience. Quotle app is one of them!

Introducing Quotle App

Quotle app is a book recognition app, developed specially for book lovers.

Touted as the Instagram of book quotes, Quotle app incorporates text recognition technology that allows smartphone users to discover, save and share inspiring quotes and pieces of texts by turning the smartphone into a powerful social scanner.

How does it Work?

Quotle app converts a user’s smartphone camera into a scanner, and enables users to capture content from a book. Users can also type the content and the Quotle app will then define it and provide options to correct or edit the content. If the user likes a quote that he reads in a book, he can capture the content from his smartphone app, after which Quotle will discover the author and users can share the content on their social networking profile by adding different colours and font styles. Users can also insert the author name, title and date for the publication.

Quotle Community

While Quotle app enables users to capture and publish quotes they love, it also allows users to be part of the Quotle community and browse through published quotes from other members. Users can follow other people and comment on their uploaded content. They can also search for quotes and content in the topic of their choice – from business and history to poetry and science.
