Most helpful scanner app!

I downloaded this app just because of an advertisement on FB. You know, at fist I was skeptical about all this FREE trial thing, but this scanner saved me several times when I was on a trip and need to scan and sign documents asap. Cannot believe I did not use this app before. It’s easy, convenient and I would definitely recommend it. You can scan in b&w, color, add stamps and other things. Great job developer. There were some troubles when uploading large pdf files, but apparently they fixed it.
I haven’t used other scanners, but truly don’t need them. It must be the best of its type around.

The one thing I wish were different is the cost obviously, but I understand business is not a charity. Developers need money to keep all this stuff live.
Seen a lot of reviews with scam complaint. Well, people you’re in 2020, you should READ carefully what you are signing for. Besides, you can cancel free trial right away (ask google how).

For example, my friend use it’s free version and totally okay with the limitations. I think it’s great when you have an option to pay or not to pay.

Good But Could get better

I love the App, i have a few qualms that I wanted to fix: one is that converting image to text takes a long time and two when I grab The documents I have to size it out from the 4 corners rather then have an option in the middle of the corners for the horizontal/vertical sizes. That could be a little faster just to have another vertical/horizontal bar. But otherwise you won’t find a better one on the market for the price, so i guess I’m happy, but not 100% elated yet. I hate paying so much for apps now and at least I have a lifetime subscription so that is nice, so I’m not crying every month like some.

Question to the developer:
I also was wondering if the text that we capture could be enhanced? Such as making books in dim lighting lighter?
I though that was included but I couldn’t figure out how to make that happen? And drag and drop files would be nice too.

Specifically for written words to text capability

TLDR: more expensive and not as good as other apps dedicated to handwriting to text. Manipulative pushy-feeling customer experience for someone just wanting to try out the features quickly left a bad tast in my mouth.

What I didn’t like: took a picture of a rather messy handwritten note. Had it translate it. This was the third program I tried with this, and the conversion was by far the worst. Text was split up into way to many lines. Lots of errors.

What a REALLY didn’t like: the mercenary nature of the pressure to give them money. This “free” version was the most limited of all the three options I tried and the most expensive. I had to sign up for the premium version just to try out the handwritten to text conversation capabilities. Yes, there is a 7 day free trial. And yes, I know the point of that is so I forget to UN-sign up for that and you get some money. That’s ruthless. That is why I’m taking the time to leave a bad review, along with your pestering me for a review and repeatedly trying to get me to sign up for your paid service before I had a chance to test out the product. Your customer experience starts off leaving a bad taste I my mouth.

Can’t speak to the other scanning features because that’s not what I was interested in, but you came up third or something when I searched for handwriting to text, so you should expect that type of customer.

Developer Response ,

Hello Isaac1082! Thank you for sharing your feedback; we always try to improve the app and user experience. We do not force users into a paid subscription. But the best way to test the app is to activate a free trial because it gives you full access to Premium features for free. You can easily cancel it at any time. We strive to be clear and consistent to our users, and we inform them about all the terms on our description page as well as on the sales screen. Regarding the pricing policy, our current prices allow us to bring more value for Premium subscribers while keeping Basic features totally free.
