  • Good but not great

    This app does not replace a dedicated photo scanner. While the results are decent at best, a large amount of aliasing can be found on the compiled image. The quality is significantly less than that of the native camera and often looks blurry. If you would like to quickly scan prints or pictures at the cost of fidelity, this app is for you. Otherwise, you are better off staging your pictures with the native camera or better yet, get a decent scanner. quick+ I like the icon of app. Very nice
  • A little bit of a learning curve.

    By why did you gut the app
    Scan photos on a horizontal surface like a table. Doesn’t work vertically on a wall.
  • Slow, can’t find edges

    The app itself is very slow. It takes a minute or so per picture and sometimes the little dots to follow go entirely away from the photo which doesn’t make sense. I wasn’t checking after each upload but after going back through the pile of photos I scanned, I discovered that many edges were missed entirely. Some 4x6 photos ended up square or looking like panoramic pictures with parts of the photos missing. Don’t recommend.
  • Incredible!!

  • Horrible glass glare all over the place

    This is terrible !!! It does not get rid of glare from glass in photo frame at all!!! Did it many times, no flash, but window glare is all over it. Worst experience I have ever had with an app.
  • A Great Tool!

    Love the idea of this. I was a scanning machine last week with a bunch of old family photos, but then yesterday I was looking through all the scanned photos and it’s “auto-crop” is off on the majority of them. I even laid the photos on a white or black (depending on the color of the photos edges) poster board so that the app could find the edges of the photos easier. And the glare-free feature is nice, but it doesn’t do anything about shadows... Most of the photos I scanned last week.... Have the shadow of my phone and hand in it. Super bummed.
  • Awesome app!
