  • Abstract


    Snap and split is a mobile application which uses Optical character recognition to recognize the bill from a printed sheet. It provides an option to tag users and telling them about the shared bill by pushing a notification. Users can tap and pay the bills instantly.Tesseract is one of the best image recognition tools present and uses separate packs for various languages.
