Ratings and Reviews
This is the app to bridge the physical world of data (notes, books, papers, etc) and the digital world.
Well executed scanning, cropping, annotation, then send the result to your preferred notes app for filing.
Good cropping; can print without paying
Of the handful of scanning apps I tried, this one was my favourite. It was the only app that auto sensed the document correctly, and the only one that I could print from without paying some ridiculous amount for a paid subscription.
Best scanner app, period
This is the best scanner app out there - simple, clean, super easy to use, top quality - I don’t use anything else for scanning. Period.
