Which OCR app for my needs?

iOS & iPadOS
I am using an iPhone 4, so not the best camera of the Apple lineup, but I'm hoping I can find an OCR app that will meet my needs. What I am wanting to do is OCR the inserts for a number of my Blu-ray movies so that I can get the code to allow me to download the free digital copy that comes with the discs. The print is pretty small, so perhaps my camera isn't enough to do the job, but I thought it worth looking into. Any recommendations for an app would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chris
You can use digit eyes it is a OCR app.
Isaac, you've suggested Digit Eyes a couple times now as an OCR app. Is this a new feature I missed? I use it for reading bar codes, but I don't recall hearing anything about reading text. Unless it has this new feature, or, the DVD code the original poster is looking for is a barcode, I don't think Digit Eyes, as great as it is, is the right app for this application. Having an even worse camaera in my iPod 4g, I haven't had much luck with any OCR apps, but I've heard great things about Text Detective.
