Absolutely Fabulous!

Works as well as a $300 scanner.

The Best!

I have a nice scanner connected to our computer but if I can’t get to it because someone else is using it, this is great. And actually if I’m in a hurry this is faster. I’ve been going through old pics of my parents and this is doing an amazing job. THANK YOU! I love this app.

App crashes and phone heats up when scanning multiple photos

4
Overall I like the app and it does what it's stopped to. I like how the photos automatically upload to Google photos. I encountered lagging, lots of crashing, and my phone heating up when I was trying to scan a whole photo album worth of photos (around 50). I had to take a break and let my phone cool down and then continue after 30 min or so. This process happened continuously. If you're planning on scanning a few photos at a time, this app is excellent!

Great for archiving old photos

I use this app all the time! So easy and great results. Great way to preserve photos digitally.

Thank you

This app is the best. I’m currently going through my mother’s secret photo albums (she just passed), and needed something to digitize my family history. The app is easy to use, and automatically (and VERY accurately) cuts the photo and removes glare. Again, thank you for helping me during this rough time. I can’t express how grateful I am for the intuitive and easily accessible products you make. Tytyty

Slow, but then also poor quality

1
Very disappointed in this. Very slow. Crashes or fails to save photo maybe one third of the time. And saved photos often obliterated by glare. Supposed to be glare free?? Nowhere close. Some photos come out okay but a good fraction are just not usable. I’ll try different lighting but so far this is a failure.

No way to save photos natively on iOS

2
At some point, it became impossible to save scanned photos to anything but Google photos. Exporting them reduces the quality and adds a garish border and Google watermark. It’s a free app and it’s certainly Google’s prerogative to lock the functionality as they see fit, but if you’re not using their Photos app, this probably isn’t the app for you.
