Review from Carlo Wolter
Very good and useful Best so far. Fast and simple. Very keen at aligning skewed images.
So many limits.. Crippled. Ads and rating nags and "go pro" ads and watermarks and also limits on the number of pages? Limited, free versions are fine, but when they are so crippled as to be useless, and so intrusive to use, the dev had already lost any chance for me to buy the pro version.
Poor UI I pictured a few receipts and that looked good. The pictures needed to be cropped and the app put nice frames around them. From there I had no clue what to do. Two different icons offered sharing and I tried the one that looked like the Adobe logo to send an email to myself. Mail was empty. Will uninstall
Essential !!! Better than the real thing ;) 1. You should add a "get our pro version" button somewhere. You'll lose customers without it. 2. You may want to replace your corner detection with side/line detection. Corners are usually more crumbled, while the page sides are (in my experience) more accurately detectible. Going pro version now!
Real time saver I've been using handy scanner for about a week. So far it's saved me 3 trips to the bank or accountant's office and allowed me to stay at my kids school function instead of running off to find a fax machine. Love it.
What makes it versatile is it auto detects corners, corrects perspective, and enhances images for fax, colour print or b/w printing. But I removed a star because it seems to capture using the lowest resolution possible. I know it's a freebie version but I was hoping it would use at least 200 DPI at the medium setting but it seems to use something below 80 DPI with no indication if we pay the whopping upgrade fee, of what the upgraded quality of the images would be?
Useful tool but... The end result is NOT a .pdf file but an instead an image saved as .pdf which is pretty lame. And, don't be fooled by the language.. the description says save as .pdf or .jpeg and YES I know the difference. Other than that it does have an easy to use user interface (UI) and stitches the images together which is nice for multiple page letters, contracts, etc... which is the only reason I gave 2 stars. Come up with a true, editable, .pdf scanner and you'll get 5 stars across the board!
