Always updated, always useful. Been using this app for many many years, and it has always served me well. Not often an app this old continues to receive updates and support. Stop looking for other scanning apps, get this one.

Edit: Updating my review. Bought this app back in 2009 and it's still being updated and maintained, 7 years later! Still extremely useful, clean, and easy to use. If I had to choose one word for this app it would be "reliable". Can't give Jotnot enough praise.

JotNot pro

This is one of the most seriously useful programs on my telephone.
I use it constantly to make PDF files from a range of documents sometimes to email to others sometimes to convert to editable document for myself.
It is a star app

Confirm my previous review from last year. Still one of the best, most useful.

Wouldn't be without it

Love love love this app. Never had a problem, in the 4+ yrs I've had it. So handy, for work and play. Yes, you could take a photo, but quality and options JotNot offers is like saying you could write a note of the doc's content: you could, but why would you?
