Life saver

I really have a hard time reading and retaining what I read because my mind wanders. I love this app because it gets me through all my college readings. I wish the scanner was a smidge better but it may be a user error lol. I tell all my friends about it. I wish I knew about this app as a freshman!

Great to hear! Thank you for the kind words. /TC

Really good so far

I’ve been using another scanner app happily fo years, but it keeps getting more complicated and finally pushed me away. This app does what you need quickly and very well. So far the image clean up and OCR have been excellent. I’m using the option to save to Dropbox and it works well.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for the kind words! They're really appreciated. /TC

Great idea, lacking in important features

This app ha some promise, but from what I can determine, you are limited in Cloud selections to iCloud, or pay for the developers cloud service. They need to allow Google Drive, Box, Dropbox, AWS, etc always in order for this to be a truly remarkable app. If I could give it a “no star” rating I would, just because of this lack of, frankly, common sense. Update: the author claims onefrive and others are supported, but conspicuously left of Google Drive. Pretty bad

Developer Response ,

Hello. As detailed in the app's description, Prizmo supports the following cloud storage services for the auto-upload feature: iCloud, Dropbox, OneDrive and WebDAV. You will need to connect yourself to one of these within the app.
Please note that the Cloud Plan is not a cloud storage service. It allows you to use the Cloud OCR (usually more accurate that the built-in one) and it also unlocks all the features of the Premium Pack. /TC
