Great app

This has been a exciting journey through all my old photos from the 110 to Polaroid to Kodak era. The digital age excites me and being nostalgic it has been awesome journey to the digital age. I love this app and have recommended it to tons or people through my daily blog. It is sitting the top 8 apps on my list. The basic app is so thorough there has never been a reason for me to upgrade to the gold. But I’m surely going to. Thank you for the developments of this app it’s helpful, useful, wonderful the gambit of photo scanning at its best. I hate to look at a picture and notice it’s a picture of a picture. Enjoy keep up the great work.

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the awesome feedback. Our basic app is better for older devices; Gold for newer ones, i.e. iPhone 6/6s and later (Gives higher resolution scans, has many editing tools, more export options, and extra features clubbed under 'Goodies').

Great app!

I’ve got a ton of old photos to scan and didn’t want to deal with buying and installing a scanner, so I bought this app. I tried it out on a photo and then went to Walgreens to use their scanner, and when I had both photos printed they looked nearly identical, other than a slight color difference which can be adjusted. I’d highly recommend this app!

Developer Response ,

Upgrade at a discount via this app bundle: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app-bundle/photo-scanner-apps-pack/id1260144025?mt=8.

Amazing for genealogy and archival research

A big struggle for me is digitizing images during my research. I really hated going through my collected files and finding really low quality images, but I haven’t had that problem at all with Pic Scanner. Everything is so fast, easy, and high quality.

Developer Response ,

That's great to hear. We would love to hear what could make this app even more useful for you and other family history researchers. Please email us? Perhaps we can also offer you some extra tips.
