  • Fantastic

    By Armin Hasanpour
    it suprise me
  • Good scanner

    By ex-trumpeter
    If you need quick scans for online use or other sharing, this works well. It works best in good natural light, so the dim light in your bedroom is a poor choice. Do your best to keep a steady hand and keep the phone parallel to the workpiece, which can be hard to do.
  • Works well

    By Lopresb
    I have several scanner apps that I’ve tried and do far I like this one the best. I didn’t quite understand how to scan with it at first but figured it out after a few tries. I like that I can scan and then send the picture by text or email right from the app.
  • I love this app.

    By isatetterton
    Highly recommend to anyone who can’t afford/ doesn’t want a printer in there home or a laptop/home computer. The picture quality is really good and when I put this app with google photos and all my old baby pictures I no longer have to worry about losing them (especially thankful for the one that have about had it.) this is an amazing app and I think it’s defiantly worth the download.
  • Easy scans with compromises in quality

    By Bezaleel31
    Quality is significantly lower than taking a picture of the print –details are lost– and colors take a yellow hue when using the flash. Can’t edit photos’ dates on the app –something essential given the fact that most scanned pictures are old
  • Good but not great

    By polaroid photographer
    This app does not replace a dedicated photo scanner. While the results are decent at best, a large amount of aliasing can be found on the compiled image. The quality is significantly less than that of the native camera and often looks blurry. If you would like to quickly scan prints or pictures at the cost of fidelity, this app is for you. Otherwise, you are better off staging your pictures with the native camera or better yet, get a decent scanner. quick+ I like the icon of app. Very nice
  • A little bit of a learning curve.

    By why did you gut the app
    Scan photos on a horizontal surface like a table. Doesn’t work vertically on a wall.
  • Slow, can’t find edges

    By J. Olson
    The app itself is very slow. It takes a minute or so per picture and sometimes the little dots to follow go entirely away from the photo which doesn’t make sense. I wasn’t checking after each upload but after going back through the pile of photos I scanned, I discovered that many edges were missed entirely. Some 4x6 photos ended up square or looking like panoramic pictures with parts of the photos missing. Don’t recommend.
  • Incredible!!

    By dannyidol
    Can’t believe how easy and effective this app is. Saves hours of frustration. Can easily scan all my old family pictures!
  • Horrible glass glare all over the place

    By Second-Mouse
    This is terrible !!! It does not get rid of glare from glass in photo frame at all!!! Did it many times, no flash, but window glare is all over it. Worst experience I have ever had with an app.
