Great support!

I was very frustrated when the app’s new features were giving me problems:

“This app was great for years. I used it daily for work. A couple of months ago it was “improved.” Now it is useless. When you go to snap a shot the auto picture jumps all over the place, making it impossible to picture your entire document. There’s a lot to be said for, “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it!”

However, the developer contacted me within 24 hours & explained how I could shut off the “auto picture” feature by tapping the yellow icon in the top left corner of the camera screen. Now it works great again! Couldn’t function without it. Best pdf scanning app I’ve ever used.

Developer Response ,

If you put a “white” document in a dark background or a “dark” document in a white background, and keep the background clean as possible with only the target document in the camera screen, it will detect very well and the orange overlay should be stable.

Otherwise, you still can take a picture and then tap on the rectify button to adjust the corners no matter what the app detected.

If you really want to turn off the new auto detect function, you can tap on the On/Off button in the top left corner in the camera screen.

False Advertisement (misleading)

I have been using DocScan and needed to fax a document (I never use a fax for anything but this seemed faster than snail mail which were the two options I was given to submit some paperwork) so I scanned all my papers and then went to fax and put in all the info and then was told it would be $9.90 to fax?!?! Well it kept asking me to upgrade and it read that you could fax in this new “Pro” version. Okay so $5 seemed better to me than $10 so I upgraded it and went through the process again typing everything into the one screen where I was sending and then it again told me $9.90?!? So obviously where I read inside the app where it asked me to upgrade it did not say you still had to “pay per page” and I emailed the company and they basically said “we never said it was free fax...” ?!?! Personally I think just giving me my $5 back would have been better customer service given the misleading description that I’m sure will be promptly changed but bad business guys....

Great app

This app is great for taking pictures of receipts so I have a permanent record to attach to each transaction in Quicken. I like the fact you can email as photo or PDF. I have also used this app for coping pictures from many of the photo albums we’ve collected over the years. This app takes great pictures and is easy to use. You can rename the folders which makes it very useful. The app also gives you the option as to what size you want to send thru the email system and tells you how many megabits each size is. It also lets you crop and turn each photo. I’ve used this app for many years and have never been disappointed.
