The product itself is very good, but the app is something you would see out of beginner programmers. It is very poorly done and the capture is disappointing. Half of the time it does not find the boundaries and the other half when it does, it takes it a few minutes to figure it out. The app is sluggish, slow, and pauses partially through capture movements. The app itself is enough for me to stop using the actual product or even use competitors instead who have better apps and practically similar products.

I tried using an earlier version of the app, and I found it cumbersome and counter-intuitive. I just bought the loose leaf binder and tried the "updated" app, but I see no improvement. It is easier to use the Adobe Scan app, which automatically crops the pages, and captures the image, converting it to a pdf with OCR. Also, I'm going to return the looseleaf notebook. The spiral book works fine, and I can child the cover back so it takes uo a minimal about of surface space, unlike the loose leaf notebook.

I loved this app until it just stopped uploading the PDFs after a month of use. This defeats the point of having the eraseable notebook for me. I have not been able to get any response from tech support whatsoever. Uninstalling and reinstalling didn't do anything. Funny that it worked long enough that now I can't get a refund and now I'm stuck with an app that can just take pictures of my pages, but doesn't allow me to save them as PDFs or upload them anywhere I could actually make use of them.
