I needed this app to help me organize my sheet music and distribute to my choirs. What a huge help. I can easily share pdfs to gmail, google drive, onedrive, dropbox, and even whatsapp. This has been an invaluable tool for this musician. After using the free version for a few years, I upgraded to the paid version to get access to more features. I like not having the watermark on my pages, and not dealing with ads. I'm still exploring all the extra things I can do. I highly recommend.

Overall this app has been excellent for everything I've tried to use it for. I've been using it for about last 4 years. Works great for making pdf receipts ready for reimbursement requests. I love the cropping and resizing tool, which is intuitive and works much better than just taking a photo of paper. Sharing is easy, renaming files is easy.

From my phone, it is easy to quickly make and share multi-page scans converted to multi-page PDFs faster and as good or better than with a conventional printer/scanner connected to a computer. Images are auto-squared and sized, converted to multiple file formats (pdf, docs, image), with clean, sharp image reproduction. Terrific app I've used for years, with upgrades that continually improve usability and results. I'm a fan.
