This app works super quick and is super helpful! I 100% recommend it! The translator worked really quick and accurate (from what I could tell) and the scan documents even worked on my handwritten document! 😄 Thank you for making such a great app! Five stars!

Too many interruptions!

Unfortunately, when you’re in the middle of scanning or creating a playlist the app closes each time. You have to start over and try to figure out where you left off! Unfortunately you cannot scan and make a playlist at the same time you have to scan your item 1st then create playlist there’s no shortcut so you got to figure out how to create a playlist by adding pictures from camera. It’s too time-consuming especially when you are a college student and you have a lot of material to cover. Once you have everything scanned and added to your playlist it works really well otherwise.
