    ain't free if you have to get full version to send documents via email
  • by Robert 3/30/2014
    Free version is worse than taking a simple picture with the camera.

    Doesn't upload to SkyDrive and can't save full doc to pictures
  • by User 3/25/2014
    Good, but wish it wouldn't crash. It crashes the most when you save files to your pictures library. But very good at scanning, quality beats the living 💩 out of 1000$ laser scanners, but you have to put at least ten minutes aside if you wish to email or upload or otherwise move the file in any way. To sum it⤴ up, its fabulous, but isolated from other applications. It's kinda like it lives in a dome. It's hard for files to break through this dome, and they usually crash if they try to upload or move outside

    Records image but doesn't allow any use of the image without buying full version. Not a free app if you actually want to use it.
  • by Crispin 3/19/2014
    Every way I can find to actually save a scanned document so that I can make use of it is blocked and demands that I buy the full version. Thus this adware version seems to be nothing but a useless toy. Skip this app and just use the camera.
