iPhone photogs who grow weary when scrolling through their phone for a spoecific photo now have a solution. Retana released an AI-powered iOS application that makes digital camera rolls easier for users to search and document information. Users of the app can locate text information like phone numbers and email addresses in photographs and then make a record of them.

Aside from recognizing text, the app allows users to search through their photos and create tags that ease the finding process. Also available are a voice assistant that makes the search hands-free as well as a library that is backed up on the cloud. This app makes finding a photo of class notes or that important business card a smooth and stress-free process.

The app is free, but there are two subscription plans available for those wanting more assistance. The Retana Basic is $0.99 a month and provides text transcription as well as direct email and call services. The Retana Pro is available for $4.99 a month and offers the same services with an additional 1,000 photos per month.
