  • Annoying

    By daniimarie97
    I loved this app at first. It scanned my pictures so easily & auto-cropped them. So simple. Then a couple hours later all of the pictures I had scanned updated in my photos. They again all had my carpet background I scanned the pictures on. If I had wanted to sit there & crop all the photos, I would have simply taken pictures of them. This app was a waste of my time.

  • Really good and easy to use...

    By Dave Mac
    This is a good app. It is easy to use and the finished scanned quality is really good. I wish it would upload directly to google photos or the iPhoto . Right now, after scanning, I have to share to my iPhoto app. Still, I have a scanner that I still use, but this app really rivals the quality of my scanner.

  • Great App

    We have scanned thousands of photos and have had no major issues
  • Great!!! But...

    This is fantastic. The only problem I have with it is that it lightens some of my photos too much and they end up looking washed out. Please make that an option to keep original format of photo or to “auto edit”.
  • App closes and doesn’t work for long period of time.

    This app works great sometimes, and then it shuts down and won’t work at all. Ugh!

    This is the very best app ever! I have hundreds of photos and now I have a way to save them forever without taking up much simple and easy to do! Grateful that I was watching “Good Morning America “ when they recommended this wonderful app!
