Totally useless. I scanned 150 pages from a book and it just couldn't save the file. No indication of how far in the process it is and it took extremely long, so I just exited the app. When I reopened the app, all the scanned images had disappeared. I downloaded another app to see if it had saved the images somewhere but to my horror all the time spent was out of the window. It actually DELETES the images taken after exiting the app. W t f ? Total waste of time. It seemed really quick and all but when you can't even SAVE the stuff, AND you can't even "remake" a pdf with older photos you've spent half an hour or more to make, it's useless.

What is ocr? It says save with ocr or save without it. I click save... and it shows the progress bar moving, but never confirms it saved it and does not confirm where it saved and I don't know what OCR is? Please help.
