  • Issues with iPhone 14 pro max and 15 pro

    By DanielleDestroy
    Can you please make this compatible with the newer iPhones? I am not able to zoom in enough for the photos to be clear while scanning. I’ve always loved this app and I am so sad it no longer works for me.

    I can’t believe I get to enjoy seeing my grandparents / great grandparents and their childhood right from my phone.

  • Makes it easy to digitize old photos

    Wish I’d discovered it earlier. The auto straighten and crop is great. My only quibble is that when it’s been a while since I last used it, when the circles show up, it isn’t obvious whether to tap something on screen or move the phone, but that’s minor.
  • Wish I knew about it sooner

    What a great tool! Was going to send out my boxes of pics to a service and almost had a heart attack to find out the cost. This is so easy and gets rid of the glare. I’ve used a scanner in the past and the pics would get these weird marks on them from the scanner.
  • I was skeptical, but it’s saving my life!

    I was expecting this to be absolute garbage. Definitely a great app to get all these old photos with me wherever I go.
