    I used to use this a lot but misplaced it. I keep a list of apps, their price, what the in-app purchases and ratings when I buy them. When I write a review I save a copy - after all, if I gave it one star 3 yrs previously it's probably not something I’ll bother with unless the version history looks promising. (some developers maybe shouldn't be so eager to truncate theirs). Getting rid of glare & shadow is unique to this app so not having it was distressing. How could I lose it and my review? I've had to reset to factory settings multiple times because the native Notes are crashing. I *love* Notes and used it daily. Crashing means I have to run in & run out before it crashes and guess how effective searching through all the apps named Photo Scanner, Scan Photo or some variation is? Right.* I couldn't count on my review helping me find it- if there's been a major rewrite of the app the App Store wipes the "out of date" reviews. * one star down for having a non-memorable name; pretty much the same name as least half of the others like it

    Just follow the arrows, then line up your corners. The green check mark means you are a success!
  • Great app

    I had 300 pictures I needed to copy and decided to use this app but was skeptical at first. The pictures turned out fantastic and it was much easier than I thought! For all you Boomers out there, this is a great and inexpensive way to capture all those old photos and preserve them.
  • It’s great…

    Great at reducing reflections but it trims the photo a little.
