Captize: The underdog productivity app makes document management effortless

Captize, a new document management app developed by a small team in Germany, is gaining popularity in the productivity category for its focus on privacy, optimized PDF workflows and great design.

From an idea to app of the day

The app was developed with a clear mission: to provide a privacy-friendly way to scan, edit, and organize documents on Apple devices. With this vision in mind, founder Marco started the project in 2020. A few months later, the first version was released to the Apple App Store. In the following year, Captize quickly gained popularity as a must-have productivity app for anyone looking to streamline their digital workflow. 

Finally, the Apple App Store team awarded Captize as “App of the Day” in May 2021 and also as one of the best apps of the year. “It was a great moment when you finally get rewarded for all the hard work. This really shows that you can make it, no matter how small your team or how big the challenge is. If you are passionate about it, everything is possible”, states Marco, founder and developer.

Privacy first

Privacy and security are always a concern when using mobile apps, especially when it deals with personal documents. The developers of Captize raise the bar with user privacy, collecting no user data at all. This is possible due to using the user’s existing Apple Account for cloud sync, which is why no extra account is needed for the app. In addition, Captize uses on-device image processing and text recognition, which means that the users scans are never sent to any external servers.

Made for Apple users

Captize is exclusively built for Apple devices, with focus on the newest hardware and software capabilities to create a great user experience. From AI boosted text recognition, super fast app start and iCloud sync to clean and intuitive UI design, the app focuses on what many Apple users value.

What’s coming next?

“We are constantly in dialog with our users to find out their needs and translate this to new features for the app. For example, the new optimized scan workflows really help users to digitize and organize their paperwork easy and efficient” explains Marco. “We also share the development process on social media in our newly installed Twitter page, where users receive the latest news, tips and offers.”

Small development teams can definitely compete with the established competitors, because they can adapt faster to new technologies and tend to be more user-friendly when it comes to privacy. Captize is a good example of that and might be worth a try for anyone who wants to digitize and manage documents on their mobile devices.
