Works well on both tribes of mobile devices collecting difficult images. Corrects for image perspective, clearly imaging machine nameplates in nearly inaccessible locations, making them searchable. Great for internal machinery pictures and project shots, letting you crop images to remove junk, mask information, and minimize size. I wish it remembered the settings it closed with, like photo mode, annoying me enough to lose a star because 4.5 rounds to 4 (even split). Absolutely recommend.

Update 2: Stopped working again. Update: the issue has finally been fixed, so I'm happy to change my review. Used to be great, but now it keeps giving an error anytime you try to extract text from a document or image. Reached out to the support team, but they're completely unresponsive. Too bad.

I used this app since July of last year. There's some thing bad that happened a few months ago, perhaps after an update. The previews are entirely inconsistent with the pdfs that are generated. The edges just eventually go crazy and look horrendous, missing completely the purpose of margin adjustment the app seems to do. It's very sad of what happened to this app. I think it's time for Microsoft to improve the quality control of this software. It is really awful and below their standards.
