Worth the price first time I used it!

I found it worth the price of in just two weeks for fully unlocked access! I had been emailed images of text documents that I needed to quickly edit. Instead of laboriously transcribing the text via keyboard, I used the example Scan Text shortcut in Toolbox Pro to convert the images of text into text files, saving me a huge amount of manual typing.

If you are serious about using or creating your own shortcuts, I highly recommend this app.
