Excellent App, Finest Quality!

Ever since I started using the app many years ago, I’ve never gone to search for something better, you know, like you download a promising calculator only to find it’s useless, full of problems, plagued by incessant ads or just has no value. Well, this app is perfectly adequate in all respects, I’ve recommended it to many other users, who also think it’s great, and have not needed to find alternate scanners. It just does the job wonderfully. Even after updating the app over the years it hasn’t become a POS like Skype, Viber, Text-Free and many other apps that will lose traction.
Keep up the good work guys, without the bloat of other junky apps - I am impressed!

Makes my receipt management so much simpler

Been collecting various pieces of paper on my travels for years now and inevitably lose/drop/mistakenly trash/soak/wash them. You name it it has happened, even drove off with a bundle of them on the roof of the car once 😔

Takes a little change in habit, now I pretty much scan them when I am handed them, whenever possible. Sync them up to OneDrive and my expenses are complete without issue. Now I can stuff all the receipts in the bin legitimately and without ever needing to have them filling my wallet for weeks.

Excellent app and makes my travel claims headaches a thing of the past.

The paid upgrade it is worth it

The free version is great in that most of the functionality is already there but the paid upgrade is also worth it for the direct printing capabilities. I found this app due to the need to scan several a3 documents and my home scanner being a4 only. This scanned and converted the documents in seconds. Since then I’ve used it to scan important pages from technical books when revising making indexing and crib sheets far easier. Extremely impressed. I hardly ever write reviews.
