    This makes taking a quick picture and emailing super easy. In the past are used to have to scan it in log into the computer attach it to an email… It would take a couple minutes. Now I’m done in 15 seconds

    I downloaded this as a means for saving all my receipts. Before, saving receipts was such a hassle and despite my best efforts somehow I’d always manage to lose important ones. Using this app to scan my receipts as soon as I get them will definitely help keep me organized and efficient. These ease with which this app scans documents is so seamless that I’m going to use it to scan notes and text for school. The app also scans receipts incredibly clearly. Its ability to cut out borders and crop the document works wonderfully. I also love that I can make adjustments to the cropping which typically isn’t necessary at all. I tried the photo scanner function that searches for documents from camera roll and it found a speech I had given months ago that I meant to save and eventually forgot about. So glad the app found that speech for me. I’ve only just started using this app but so far I’m impressed.
  • Working Good

    A couple of minutes of use and loving it. I am just scanning documents and cropping from my cell phone and it is working out great. By the way, look me up. George Carreno - The Pirate King. I’m on Facebook and Twitter. I wrote a guide on too. It can be found on my Facebook. I was literally touched by God. Read all about it on Facebook if you want. I like the app by the way. It’s working out. :)
