What a great app

After a couple of trials I figured out how to use the app and am now able to copy my old photos perfectly. No more photographing and the having to crop to size, all done for me. A great time saver and great results.

Very frustrating

After a bumpy start I managed to scan some photos. Backing up to my computer is not an easy process. Would like to be able to treat my scanned photos the same as photos taken on the phone The app has frozen a few times and I’ve had to reboot phone to fix. Now I’m taking a photo, it says it’s saved it but there are no pictures saved. Very frustrating!
