I started scanning old photos one at a time for posterity for my family. Was long and painful process. Happened to read about this app and downloaded it. Made things so much easier! I don’t even need to take pics out of albums. Just open the page, focus on desired pic, click and follow the dots. Then, just download them all from phone to hard drive. It takes a bit of getting used to so That the pic doesn’t get overexposed but it’s not difficult. Really appreciate how this app made a huge long-term project a lot easier.
Love it — it is simple & intuitive. Works great!
Easy app to use with garret results!!!!
I come from a separated family where I have printed photos but not the digital version. This has allowed me to save photos and is so easy to use!
This is the best app I have ever got. It’s just amazing 😉 don’t you guys think
Try and error, try and error, try and error... it’s difficult finding the right “balance” for the dots
I love the quality of the scanned photos and the ease of use of this app, but it crashes on me all the time. It starts to scan a photo then just shuts down and sends me back to my home phone screen. It’s great when it feels like working, though. Makes my phone hot too. It must really churn some cpu.
