  • Won't save documents

    By RenLBee
    I needed this app for a situation at work, but for some reason, it wouldn't save any of the pictures/documents I was taking. I thought maybe I had to pay to subscribe for my work to be saved, but it still wouldn't save. I couldn't figure out how to cancel it so I ended up paying $10 a month for an app that wouldn't work. I just tried to request a refund but it was not accepted (even though I haven't used it at all). I used this app a year or two ago and it worked, which makes me sad now to know that all the files I saved back then were also not saved when I checked. So it's a good idea, but beware of losing your stuff.
  • Forced upload to Adobe servers, forced download on WiFi

    By Vancefan2020
    App forces you to upload and download all documents from their servers when you're on WiFi. Why? Obviously Adobe has a reason for not letting us store our documents locally. And I'm willing to bet it's not a good one.
  • Ok! But Resolution Pretty Bad

    By ThirtyOhSix
    I was using this to scan Sons of the American Revolution applications for genealogy purposes. I screenshot the pages, which the pictures turned out great by the way. Then I used this app to turn these great pictures that were easily read into a PDF. The app worked as advertised, but the applications were barely readable. I scoured the app to see if there was a way to increase the resolution and did not find anything. I am an adobe cloud subscriber since the service started and app purchaser before that. I wish the resolution was better b/c it is useful to store these together.
  • Amazing!

    Puts the other scanner apps I’ve tried to TOTAL shame. Literally the best app on my phone, it’s a total life saver during my residency.
