Good scanning software, but the paid members to directly upload things to your drive is annoying and pointless, because I can email it to myself and download it to upload to my drive. Sometimes I also wish I could change brightness on specific parts of scams. Overall very good. some brightness change tools would be nice, and get rid of the pointless paywall.

It works great! It scans everything in full color, and you can share it over social media. It doesn't pick up most erased marks, so you can make plenty of changes without it being too noticeable. The main problem, however, is that lighting can render your scanning to be unreadable. This is an easy fix, though, and is largely inevitable. It serves it job perfectly, aside from that.

I was looking for an app to keep digital copies of receipts, and was blown away by how easy this app is to use, and the clear thought the developers have put into the features. I'd highly recommend upgrading to the + version--it's a one-time $10, no subscription needed. I uninstalled the rest of the scanning apps I was going to try after this one. I ended up scanning the entire stack of documents I've been putting off running through the printer for months, and it took like 10 minutes.
