  • Awesome app for preserving memories!

    This app is awesome! A great way to quickly scan photos and save them to your phone. Only problem I've run into is that the same great technology that allows you to edit corners and cropping and save it across the app and the rest of your albums is that if you try to remove them from the app it will delete them everywhere. This is causing me problems since the app has a lot of data in it and is therefore crashing a lot. Other than that it's awesome. Definitely recommend.

    So, my parents have boxes on boxes of photos from my childhood with a bunch of family. My dad always panics when I take any photos to show anyone so having this and being able to put it on google photos was honestly the best. Safe from fires, water damage, hurricanes, all that jazz. Thank you for a wonderful app
  • Easy Peasy!

    God send, I’m in the process of getting a photo album ready for a visitation. This app is phenomenal
  • Great tool but difficult share interface

    By paxdonnaverde
    Perfect for digitizing old photos but should be able to share them to mail, Facebook, Shutterfly, etc without going through Dropbox first. You’re shooting yourselves in the foot and frustrating the customer.
