This app has exeeded my expectations. It's is very simple to use, the quality of the scan is very good, and I can easily send a saved copy of each scan by email. The ability to scan multiple pages into a sing PDF is a bonus. Having tried a few different scan apps before, I have finally found one that does everything I need, easily, and in with quality. Thank you developers.

The only scanner/PDF creator that doesn't make you pay to remove watermarks! That's enough for 5 stars from me. The corner/edge detection of documents could be a bit better - I usually have to adjust the corners even when I take a picture of a white document on a black background with optimal lighting, but I can't really complain for a free app from a reputable software company.

I had to use this for classes, and it was easy and useful. Then tax season came... me and my wife had 29 pages to scan, and it was a nightmare with the printers. I remembered that I had this app... All I had to do was take a picture of the pages and then email the one pdf! It is so much easier than the printer/scanner hassle just to convert file types... This was cake.
