CamScanner is a fantastic app. The features and UI (User Interface) is very cool, and it is super easy to use. You can do so much more with this app like scanning the text of your document, scanning your document and converting it to a Word document. It has the ability to compress your file making it easier to send through text messaging or other email platforms, and overall is very user-friendly and easy-to-navigate even those who are not tech-savvy. This program allows you to do many things.

Have used this app for a very long time with no issues. Yesterday, my wife accidentally deleted several pages of tedious typing including a table. She had printed it. I scanned it into Adobe hoping to use their OCR. What a mess. Then, remembering the OCR capability of CamScanner, I scanned the pages, used the OCR saving it to a Word doc. After a few minor typing changes and highlighting all the text to change the font, the document was successfully saved and emailed. WOW!

This app used to be really good, but recently with the free version, really annoying pop up ads that are hard to close show up all the time. Plus, when I send the documents to email, sometimes I can't open them and receive a message saying "file type not supported" even though I'm sending them in PDF. Plus images often turn out blurry even though they appear clear in the camera. App has really gone downhill and don't know why you would pay for an expensive subscription.
