Good but has issues Absolutely love being able to scan and send images directly to my computer. However, their "destination" function to add a location so you don't have to continue to click on folders to get to the final folder destination is experiencing issues. I contually have to restart the app and it ultimately has to shut down and I can't use the "destination" function. Other than that I would have rated it a 5.

I've been using this app for a couple years and I've had a great experience. Scans comes out really clean and the filters capture whiteboard text really well. I LOVE the auto export through WebDAV. Although, I would love a toggle button on the scanner for the document detection. Sometimes I want to capture the entire image, but the document detection forces the camera to only capture a portion of the image and cuts off content (primarily when I'm scanning a whiteboard)

Does exactly what it says... and does it perfectly! I use this on a semi-daily basis and this thing scans everything that has 4 sides flawlessly, picking up details that I had to verify when I first started using it because I thought it could never get that. Great sharing and integration options... I can upload to Google Drive, email, etc. Filters after scanning do a great job for lighting / color issues. Can't recommend this enough, it is fantastic. Keep up the great work!
