    I was surprised at how fast I was able to start scanning photos with my phone and not having to worry about glare or alignment.

    I just started using the app to scan photos, and so far, it seems very user friendly. It also seems easy to send the scanned photos to others.

    This does a pretty good job of duplicating the picture to digital format. Would love an added feature where I could add a note about each photo so I could remember the date it was taken, which is written on the back of most of my photos.
