    I Found a ton of vintage photos of my family (300+) and would cost me a years worth of morgage payments to scan. Using your app I was able to scan the ones I really want to share with my family and the app made it so easy. Would recommend your app to anyone.
  • Used to work well

    Since the addition of these circles I can't get any documents properly scanned. Thanks.

    This is such a helpful app! So much better than just taking a picture on camera! There are things you can do like flip the photos and crop them and it doesn’t even need to be square! If you are looking for a perfected document then this is a great app for you. I can’t even believe the work it has saved me, and I think that the only thing it could change is writing on it digitally! If that happens I will gladly give it a 5 star review!! Perfect photos!!
