  • Scanning photos

  • I love it!

    By fionabri
    By far the easiest way to save and share photos.
  • Great app to save family history!

    By Family Photo Friend
    My family passed down a big box of old photos. I wasn’t sure what to do with all of them. I looked through the box and picked out the important pictures and used this app to digitize them. Now I can make a family history book! I don’t feel guilty anymore about ignoring the huge box of photos.

    I have tons of photos in scrapbooks that I wanted in digital form and this app has made it ridiculously easy. Even better the quality of the photos is incredible.
  • Keeps crashing!

    By My Cavaliers
    This app came highly recommended but while using it to catalog family photos it keeps crashing. Maybe there’s a problem tonight but still is very frustrating!!!!
  • Low resolution

    By HansOCD
    Very low resolution. Turbo Scan works much better. Trust me, I'm a Googler and I'm honestly recommending you not use this app. Not sure how it got so many good ratings.
  • Works as advertised

    This app is amazing. It works wonders right out of the box. Removing - or at least limiting - glare is great
