  • Great app!

    By CoyoteLady
    This is a terrific app. It very quickly scans in print photos and removes glare. I scanned older polaroids and now have them in my digital photos!
  • Good App

    Some of the photos still have a glare from the lighting but it is much better than other apps I’ve tried.

  • Love this!

    By HannahR!
    That app works great! I have several photos of my Grandfather who died when I was very young. I love that I’m able to have digital copies! I’d give it a higher score if I could!

    I had low expectations but boy was I wrong. An amazing piece of software, although not perfect. Good one Google!
  • My go-to photo scanner

    By Sprucenbirch
    Why is this not available for iPad? I love the way it works, the way it takes for sub scans of each photo, that way I can adjust the corners.

  • Best scan app

    By Sunnz316
    I have downloaded a bunch of free apps, and thanks to this app I was able to delete all the other apps. I almost gave up and bought a real scanner, until I found this app. This is quick and easy to use, and has not given me any problems. I scan all my receipts using this, even when paper is creased and folded it will give you a clean clear scan.
