I normally don't do much of this ratings but I had to. I had some urgent documents and pictures that needed to be scanned and emailed. I couldn't get my office scanner to work and I had over 60+ pages and pictures to send as PDF. I remember having the app on my phone but I had never used it. I immediately went to it and it was the most smooth and easy, stress free, Scan I have ever done. Very accurate scan of docu., clear and clean. Good job!!! Love it!!!!

Been using this app for a year almost now, it never crashed, lagged or had any kind of technical issue. I've switched multiple phones as well and every new phone the app pulled all of my scans after successfully logging in each time from a new device. This app even though I use just the free service, it still serves as an excellent tool for small business daily activities, as well as for personal, home and banking services and management tasks, Absolutely, Love it can't think of a better app !

Impressive. I was able to make a rather crumpled document look good with just a few clicks. It's definitely a step up from Google Docs in terms of image capture and manipulation. I'm a career-long user of Adobe's desktop products but my experiences with their mobile apps has been, well- hit or miss in the past. In this case however, I am very pleased with the intuitive interface and features that actually make sense.
