We propose a method to make mobile screenshots easily searchable. In this paper, we present the workflow in which we: 1) preprocessed a collection of screenshots, 2) identified script presentin image, 3) extracted unstructured text from images, 4) identifiedlanguage of the extracted text, 5) extracted keywords from the text, 6) identified tags based on image features, 7) expanded tag set by identifying related keywords, 8) inserted image tags with relevant images after ranking and indexed them

We developed novel architectures for components in the pipeline, optimized performance and memory for on-device computation. We observed from experimentation that the solution developed can reduce overall user effort and improve end user experience while searching, whose results are published.
