Fantastic Scanner

I spend quite a bit of time in the MTG space with a lot of interaction with developers of apps and websites related to Magic. This is one of the best apps that I've used, and probably *the* best scanner that I've encountered. I have used many scanners and this is the only one that I've had success with consistently and accurately scanning funky SLD cards.

The owner and developer is very receptive to feedback, active daily on Discord, and noticeably passionate about the project. The price is fair and absolutely worth the cost of what...a small black coffee once per month? Easy decision for me. I highly recommend this app!

Developer is super responsive and the app is better than all the others I tried. Love how simple the interface is and isn’t loaded down with adware like some of the other apps! Thanks for a great app and thanks for the quick responses to questions.

Great app for card collections and value trackers

Saw a recommendation on Reddit, the old app I used was having issues being consistent with updates.

This seems to be pretty on top of things and so far is great!

Just marking a 4 out of 5 as it would be nice to just have a full permanent upgrade purchase rather than a subscription. I would use this for years so something like $15 now would be a good deal to me, but forgetting about a yearly subscription would be upsetting.

Hi 25521177! Thanks for the kind review. I’ve been considering a “Lifetime Unlock”, and appreciate the feedback.

If you have questions or more feedback feel free to email me at
