  • Easy to use

    I’ve scanned over 500 photos so far. Great app!
  • Great if it didn’t crash

    I love the app’s concept, but it keeps crashing on me. I have an iPhone that is up to date so I’m not sure what the issue is. The ratio of crashes to photos scanned is 1:1 for me so far. Very frustrating to say the least.
  • So easy!

    I am putting together a slide show for a 50th wedding anniversary and have a ton of printed photos I want to include. This app is amazing! It’s so quick and easy — and I’m pretty tech illiterate. Had to do this same task a couple years ago using an actual scanner and it took forever. This is way better! Photo quality is quite good, as well.
  • Fantastic!

    This app has enabled me to quickly scan old photo prints and turn them into digital photos. The quality is great and so easy to do.
  • The Best Photo scanner app

  • No

    It doesn’t even remove the glare, trash.
  • Used to be a great app

    Very disappointed since the last update to fix the app for iPhone X, it now crashes on my iPhone 6s Plus. Been waiting for another update hoping it would fix the issue, but no such luck. App is now useless...
