    There is an app called "PDF Scan" it turns your camera into a scanner and saves it as a PDF file. The free and paid versions are in the Android market.

    That's what Scan PDF does. It takes a picture of your text and saves it in PDF format. I'm sure you can convert it to .txt format.

    As far as I know, Scan2PDF doesn't do OCR, like the OP is requesting.

    This. I don't know of any image to text apps.
    I'm sure Goggles can do it with enough time.

    I believe 3Banana :icon_ banana::icon_ banana::icon_ banana: does that but if you want OCR in addition Use Alchemy Clip - It takes a pic of the text and uses OCR to place the text in the clipboard to send to the app you wish to export to as well as save the text too. I have a new Droid and have played around with them both and find them both useful :reddroid:
