    Works great
  • Slick but HORRIBLE!!!

    By 13faces
    The app itself functions pretty slick. But.... It only supports super LOW resolutions for your final image. It’s barely good enough for social media. My phone 10 years ago could take higher res images than what this saves. My newest phone has some of the most advanced lenses and camera technology widely available as it’s the newest pro model. Why can’t google make use of this????? Do not trust this for any archival purposes!
  • Great app!

    So easy and quick!
  • Easy to use

    An easy to use phone scan app once you get over trying to control the circles; just follow them no matter what you see by the circles, the app fixes the pic perfectly.
