This is a great app, that does what it says it does.. Scan, edit, enhance, modify and send any document.. I'm not too sure what the free version of this app allows you to do, but for a small one time fee, you can scan and modify as many documents you ever need! Everything I've needed to do has come out as good as I can expect, maybe better...

This is a 5 star rating! The app is extraordinarily useful for document management!! Filling out and/or signing a form for a doctor, employer, police, insurance, and business, etc. I can use this app to scan and organize the document right onto my phone. (Reasoning for the four stars and not five is only one small catch: The field for naming the file, when sharing and exporting, needs to auto-populate with the default given name for the best UI efficiency. "OK"ing w/ no name means ".PDF")

Fantastic app. Intuitive UI. Being able to create a signature goes a long way with forms available online. The only criticism is that I need to have it in pdf after I'm done . I've sent docs in the ScanWritr format accidentally. There should be a dialogue box asking to convert it before closing out the app.
