Cant turn off subscription
by upsetchild2020 on 2021/05/12 12:41
There is no way to turn off the subscription. It auto bills you and won’t let you cancel the subscription. So far I’m still waiting for customer support to contact me via email about canceling subscription.
Scammer App
by pissedoffroi on 2021/05/08 16:51
No way to cancel subscription during or after free trial. No way to contact them and ask. Clearly an effort to try and get people to sign up for free trials and then scam them into having to pay for the app until they cancel the card.

Deceptive
by michl p on 2021/04/14 20:13
A little deceptive that a free app requires you to sign up for ‘free’ trial then makes you cancel if you don’t want it or you get charged. Let me use it and if I like it then I will sign up!

Bought this app 2 years ago by accident. I immediately canceled it when they charged me 43 dollars for it. 2 years later they just charged me another 43 dollars which means I missed this charge on my account last year and I’ve been charged a grand total of 134 dollars for this app that I haven’t used AT ALL.

The Best Scanner of all
by kenwms on 2021/03/20 00:02
Scan Hero is very easy to use. It does a better job than my large printer/ scanner. And it has an OCR works very well. But the scans are very clear. The Scan Hero locks in on the page or paper and takes a very nice and clear copy. Whoever made this app has done a wonderful job of it.

Bugs after latest update
by chr15hawk on 2021/03/18 13:27
I frequently use this app to scan documents and convert them into pdf files. After the last update, adds popped up and you can’t see the buttons (functions) anymore. Why would some “smart” developer do that. It’s ridiculous.
Just charging money.

Glitchy
by Faith1846 on 2021/03/15 23:23
Half of the pictures were turned sideways. Had to retake them multiple times to turn them vertical. Then the app kicked me out twice and I had to turn my phone off and back on twice to get it to work end when the app came back up it didn’t save half of my progress each time. Would not pay for this app.

I deleted before I could waste another payment on this garbage app. It didn’t scan correctly. I need pictures of the WHOLE page! instead it kept scanning what was in the blue box. I tried everything to get it to scan the whole page. I even took my own pictures off my phone and imported it to see if that worked. Sometimes it worked most of the time it didn’t. Not worth my money

Can not seem to turnoff the auto focus. Extremely frustrating.it try’s to focus on what IT chooses to! And even trying to turn it off doesn’t work. And I even uninstalled it and reinstalled it now it’s trying to make me purchase the app again. I purchased it a few years ago. I got a new iPad now the app is useless!

Horrible App
by Destiny NC on 2021/02/22 18:57
App only allows you to take a certain amount of scans and share only 5 pages of scans per day for free. If you want to share more, you have to pay a ridiculous amount of money in order to share more than 5 page per day. I recommend not using this app.

No manual crop

Advertised as Free*
by Lady Wild on 2021/01/28 13:21
Buyer beware. This app advertises as free but the fine print says otherwise. They pull you in with false information, and claim that you can easily cancel after the trial. I am trying to cancel right now and have found it almost impossible to speak with anyone or find help with canceling a subscription I did not want. You’d be better off using the notes app from apple that comes with your phone. Don’t make my mistake.

When I changed phones in 2019, they could not add the paid app on my phone so I canceled. They billed me again in 2020 and would not refund saying I did not cancel in time. I had to pay another year and could not use the app. They just billed me again in 2021 and I cannot get a refund. I have to dispute through my CC company. Absolutely the worst experience!!

I have 8 scan apps most have to many options making it harder than it should be for scanning a document or photo. This app scans, text is sharp, clear and saving were I want to save is easy. I have to give it a 5 out of 5. I haven’t purchased the paid premium yet. Have 2 more to test out, but doubt they have the simplicity to capture a document text as easy as this app.

Happy user
by BMM&BSM on 2019/05/06 18:21
The app worked perfectly for an important document I was taking care of for my husband. Easy interface and capable of many mailing options including printing. I had 9 pages to scan, our printer wasn’t scanning so this was a great substitute. It only took a few minutes to do scan and send. As for subscriptions: READ people! Take responsibility for your decision- you really think this type of app is free to develop and keep up to date. I’m not a geek but I’m aware that I need to read about what they offer and their terms and all the information was there about the free use for 3 days and I had 3 days to cancel, and they were great about telling me where I needed to go to cancel. It was right up front.
You Scammed Me
by kevinch0514 on 2018/06/10 04:22
I looked into this app knowing that it was free and because I need this for a school project. The first thing this app asked me was a subscription with a free trial followed by monthly payments. Knowing that I can unsubscribe anytime, I subscribed to the app only to find out that the app didn’t suit my needs. I immediately uninstalled the app from my phone and went to the App Store to remove the subscription. Somehow, this app still had access to my account and took money from me, which I was notified of today because I didn’t have enough money in my account. This is not ethical, and I want to get my money back. As proof, I can send the photo of my downloads. This app was downloaded on May 1, 2018 and deleted May 1, 2018. Please address this concern. Thank you. EDIT: To whom it may concern, I did go to the App Store and remove my subscription. I don’t understand how it my removal did not work. Again, I downloaded the app and found out it doesn’t work well on my phone. I then deleted the app from my phone and went to the App Store. I made sure that I removed my subscription the day I registered for the subscription. Somehow my cancellation did not work. I know how to unsubscribe from apps from previous experiences on my personal device and other devices. I just don’t understand how the I couldn’t unsubscribe this one time. Thanks for your response.
Charged $43 for free trial that I cancelled BEFORE free trial ended.
by kaitlyntk on 2019/02/07 20:37
I am very disappointed with the developers of this app. I temporarily needed this app to scan some paperwork for school, so upon opening the apps, after it gave subscription options, I chose the 3-day FREE trial. After I scanned the documents that I needed to scan, I promptly went into my App Store profile and went ahead and cancelled my subscription to be sure I didn’t get charged once the free-trial ended. All was well. A couple of hours later, I checked my bank account and noticed that my there was an apple store transaction for $43... mind you that it was a 3-day FREE trial and I was charged for a 1-year subscription to the app within hours. I never authorized this purchase and never provided and password, fingerprint or anything to verify or authorize the purchase. Overall, the app itself is fine, but because of this “scam” I would not suggest this app to anyone, nor will I ever purchase it again. I am not one to write reviews, but I am very upset and disappointed with this situation.
Buggy and Infuriating but Works If You Have No Other Choice
by reviewer585959 on 2020/02/14 16:34
I do not recommend this app to anyone trying to get something done quickly, easily, and/or effectively. It’s full of bugs, crashes often, takes forever to apply edits and randomly reverts images back to their original form, and won’t let you send anything to yourself unless you buy their premium subscription which is ridiculously overpriced and used to be free. Even after you break down and buy the subscription because you have no time to do anything else, it takes two or three app restarts to get it to recognize that you’re a premium member and let you send anything. This app is a recipe for frustration and again I do not recommend it, but if you have no other way to get something scanned, I will admit that it EVENTUALLY produced a legitimate copy of a document I needed and so will probably do the same for you. Or you could just go find a different app that works correctly.
Like being relentlessly bombarded by ads?
by Schwadam on 2017/10/08 10:24
I couldn't make a single move with this app without being dragged to the App Store and having some random app thrown in my face. I've never had to fight through so much crap to execute a simple function before. You hold it above a document and once it's got it in focus, it automatically takes the picture and cues itself for the next page, and this function seemed to work very well, actually. Then, I selected three of the six pages (the limit of the free version of the app) of the document to email to myself. What arrived was the first page, followed by some blankness which it called "pages 2 and 3". So, the violent onslaught of ads, combined with its failure to include the three scanned pages that it claimed it would send in the email attachment earns it zero stars! I will admit that it was good at the scanning part. Maybe everything functions properly when you buy the full version, but the free version doesn't even do what it claims it will do, and that makes me sad.
Sneaky
by temporalJavelin on 2019/10/04 13:35
It’s a really great app! Gets the job done exactly how I want, zero issues. I have no interest in paying for this app and the functionality of the free version is great. That being said it is a little misleading because it makes it seem like you’re required to either pay or start a free trial (and eventually pay) to use it which isn’t true. There’s a small x in the corner of these pop ups but if you don’t know what you’re looking for it seems like you can’t use it without paying money or agreeing to pay money in the future.
The most annoying and inconvenient app ever
by YejOh on 2018/06/21 14:39
I downloaded this app to take a picture and scan just one document. I deleted it right after and had my automatic renewals setting turned off on my iTunes account but still got charged. After being charged I went and double checked that I wasn't subscribed for another week and it seemed like I wasn't. I got charged again. I checked AGAIN and there is no "unsubscribe" or "cancel subscription" button. I contacted the support team and they responded with: A successfully cancelled subscription should have its expiration date specified, have no subscription option selected and no "cancel subscription" button available. --to my knowledge all this was and still is true and yet if I get charged for another week I will be so much more furious than I already am! This app is not worth the hassle of using once unless you don't mind it eating slowly eating your money.

by kailsone on 2019/02/09 23:42
I downloaded this app to scan 12”x18” documents for work. It helped me get the job done, so for that: 2 stars. However, the UI is not super friendly, there were some glitches when I tried to upload photos to my library, and the app processes photos with a high contrast filter. My documents were white and I took the photos on a black table as recommended. Still, the resolution came out not great. Why anyone would pay $40/year for a subscription is beyond me. I originally signed up for the 3-day free trial (which automatically enrolls into a year subscription if you don’t end it within 48 hours of downloading the app!!) It took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to end the subscription in my iTunes account. This could be a problem with iTunes itself, so I won’t blame Scanner. Anyways, would not recommend!
Good image quality, but horrible cropping tool
by La garra chapina on 2020/03/05 19:32
If you are going to use this app to scan from camera or photos app, it will give you good image quality compared to other apps I’ve used not compared to a 600+ dpi scanner, of course. The downside of this app is it’s cropping tool. It takes me too long to crop an image nicely with their current cropping tool. It’s so imprecise you could only guess you are cropping the edges. I’ve mainly use this app to combine pages I scan with my desk scanner and to split pages into separate files. The app is awesome to combine files from different sources, not optimized to split files though, because you can only do it with one or two extra steps. Once they fix the cropping tool I will give one extra star.
You can take pictures with your phone just as easily
by ComboRobo on 2019/07/24 01:35
I got the app in order to take pictures of documents (of course) for enrollment for my benefits at work. I’ve used a docuscan through the Dropbox app and fell in love with the scanner. Unfortunately I can’t use the Dropbox to email docs from my phone so I searched for an app that I can just save documents to my phone. I was disappointed when realizing these apps require paid subscriptions but I downloaded this one anyway. I couldn’t believe the lack of quality for this app despite the requirement to pay a subscription for it. The document sensor is off and clips non document backgrounds and the quality of the image is lack luster. I was just as well off taking pictures of my documents with my camera phone with no app and sending them. Very unprofessional looking, I hope my HR department even accepts them.
Can’t email?
by dombrager on 2020/10/22 15:41
App keeps telling me that I need to set up an email to send scans but does not give any place (that I could find) to set up an email address??? I need these files emailed to me so what am I supposed to do? Update: you need to go into your phone and actually change your settings for your whole phone which I personally think is not something I want to do. There’s a reason I didn’t have an email address connected to my phone. Also the app should have those instructions somewhere instead of leaving the user hanging. Just saying “you need to set up and email address” does nothing to help me. Especially since most functioning apps allow you to set up an email address within them. I think it’s poorly designed but whatever.
Bad News — HORRIBLE App
by Dj this stinks on 2020/05/16 20:54
Since you updated this app it’s been very difficult to manage. Please put it back the way it was and I will give you five stars again. But, leave it this way and I will drop it down to a -5 if I could. It’s difficult to know where to go to scan. After I hit everything a pull down menu shows up with scan at the very, very bottom. It’s a SCANNER to scan something should be placed at the top of the app not at the bottom of a pull down menu. I don’t like this app anymore. The scan button goes round and round about ten times before it clicks. I finally found the scan button but this whole app needs to be put back the way it was eight months or so ago before the update. It wasn’t broken — now it is — FIX IT, please!!
System Failure
by Light Dweller on 2019/03/24 05:22
I downloaded this app last past summer. There wasn’t much I needed to send, and it ended up not working well for me, even when I added the free trail to try for better usage. Once that proved ineffective along with the poor organization of the app, the ambiguous layout of features, and the layers of fine print, I terminated my subscription and deleted the app. It was worthless. This last month, I noticed an odd charge on my bank statement. In spite of going into iTunes, canceling the subscription, and deleting the app months ago, I’d been charged for almost eight months!!! I reached out for help to end my subscription and seek restitution for this misuse of mutual trust and ethical dealing. This is unacceptable, and I see in the reviews that I’m not the only unfortunate drained by your parasitic app and its fine print.
Couldn’t quite figure it out, but help arrived. Great app!!
by SuzuQ14 on 2017/10/10 02:53
Easy to scan and scans well. I’m by no means very tech smart so I struggled to send 5 copies to the same place. The tutoring that they offer only shows how to capture the image which ch is great, but to novices like myself, it’d be so much better to give more ‘how to information... HOWEVER, the developers left me a message following my review and it was super easy. Hopefully they’ve corrected the tutoring option for us non-techies... lol If you ever have any trouble, the app’s customer service is very quick to respond and help. Great app! 😃
A Good Scanner but I wish it would..NEW UPDATE ⭐️
by Tradermama on 2020/08/05 11:01
This scanner app is pretty easy with the one single exception, one cannot increase the size of your text when you want to review a document ! Ive tried everything I could think of but to NO AVAIL! I open a document to see what it says and the font is so tiny you can’t make out what the darn thing says! Example I tried to read a date on a insurance policy to see if the insurance was still active and forgot it!! I’ve tried emailing support and I hope they respond soon! Other than that I would have given it 5 ⭐️ stars! A NEW UPDATE! This scanner is now a FIVE STAR ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ app! With in minutes of emailing support I received a reply with the most simple instructions on how to increase the document in order for me to read it!! ( Im almost embarrassed as I didn’t think of everything to solve my dilemma... SO MANY THANKS 🙏🏼 YOUR APP IS AWESOME AND SO IS YOUR SUPPORT!!
BEWARE: Avoid
by DylanCobain on 2019/01/14 21:30
Figured there would be a free version like with some other scanner apps, but user is auto-enrolled to a subscription. Developer response here will be that it can and should be cancelled on my end. Here’s the thing. The app (already deleted) will show up in your “purchased” but if you go to cancel the subscription, as I have, during the trial period through apple settings, the app is not listed and no cancellation is possible within the trial period from what I can see. Instead, I froze my Apple Pay and payment information before this bait and switch operation takes $40 bucks. Run. I’ll deal with the adds from other scanning apps (which I was also already bombarded with in the 10 minutes of figuring out how to get rid of this app).
Scam
by T.B.2018 on 2018/09/21 18:23
Do not use this app! I downloaded it for free because I needed to scan a few things. I then deleted the app from my phone and thought I was done. This morning I got hit with a $40 charge out of the blue. This app relies on the fact that subscription cancelation is a separate process from deleting the app; it’s deceptive, unfair, and disappointing. The app is looking to swindle anybody who doesn’t spend their entire day reading the thousands of pages of user agreements we’re all subject to just for existing in a technologically sophisticated world. So much for good faith and fair dealing! My refund request through Apple was denied, and $40 is a lot of money for a grad student with no income. Bottom line: don’t bother with this app because it preys upon people who assume that the company is acting in good faith.
Horrible
by Acb84 on 2020/02/17 19:56
Not sure who is writing these reviews but I regret this (accidental) pro subscription. This app is horrible at capturing VERY clear and defined pages. Wife has another app that was MUCH CHEAPER that’s able to capture pages on the FIRST try without having to hover over a page for days on end for this piece of **** to recognize it. Even still you have to go back into the image to trim the edges (which is upsetting given the obvious contrast between the black surface and the white 8.5 x 11 piece of paper. SMH. Worst decision of my life [insert face palm]
Incredibly useful and always works
by wknmama on 2018/05/31 16:23
Much more efficient than purchasing a scanner for home. Also serves as a file folder to always have with me. Extremely practical for a small business or just a busy person who hates the clutter of paper. Hasn’t had any meltdowns, is always ready and the ads on the app are discreet so you can still get the job done without flipping through the constant pop ups that some other apps have. Great deal for a free app!
App Works Fine, Charged Me a Yearly Subscription after 3 Days
by cturney on 2019/01/08 16:37
App works decent for what it is: a way to take pictures and automatically convert to PDFs. I downloaded this app and agreed to the free trial period. When I read it, I thought it was a 7 day trial. It’s my fault for misreading, but there was no notification from my phone like other subscriptions that it was about to renew/convert to a $40 charge. Again, I misread, BUT all of my other subscriptions have alerted me and this one did not. It wouldn’t have been a big issue if it had been $5, but $40 is a MUCH different issue. Pretty unhappy overall with this issue.
Meh
by sarahb37 on 2018/12/05 17:17
I downloaded this app for the free trial, intending to only use once as a convenient option to a scanner. Upon using for the first time, I found that it would not focus in on the documents I was scanning and would not allow for manual capture of documents. It would try to crop out bits and could hardly capture the full document. I had to end up finding a scanner to make the scans come out correctly, so this was useless for what I needed. Also, the app will automatically subscribe for you to begin paying a yearly subscription ($39) without mention. So be sure to either change that option or delete your subscription on your account after a few days before it charges you!
Scanning has never been easier!
by Mahersinjary on 2018/03/06 19:42
As Graphic designer I scan very often, especially the illustrations that I sketch on paper then I need to refine them and color them so I scan them using ‘Scanner for Me’ app and I love it. Because it gets me. I usually need the outline in black color and it has the feature where you can actually makes it only black and white so the result is so easy to convert it to a vector visual and use it as the base of my artwork. Thanks for this great app!
Charged for year subscription; did not want!!!
by kscanjipped on 2019/01/07 19:52
I was charged for the years subscription when I only intended to use the app one time. I assumed the app would do the monthly subscription and I would cancel. I have contacted apple and they will not refund my money. App works fine, but a shady way of doing business. I was glad to pay for my usage, but I do NOT want nor do I NEED this for a year. It’s a shame no one is willing to help. Great app, but lousy support!!! I do not recommend. I take responsibility for assuming the app would only renew at the smallest subscription, but it only renewed 2 days ago and for a year. I don’t understand why this can’t be changed to one month and my additional money refunded.
Be warned! They auto convert trial to paid and in 48 hours
by Ptk1071 on 2018/09/13 03:34
Saw this app in store from ad and said it was free to try. I downloaded and installed and didn’t get to try it and was auto subscribed for almost 50 bucks. Only after that did I see that there was a no refund policy. Deceptive policy to say the least. They should give at least a week or two or limited trial before opting to buy. I may have like this app but had to give it one star due to taking my money without adequate notice there was no way to back out. Dev response is typical and inadequate. Don’t download this app unless you want to get charged after 72 hours, barely enough time to even look at the app. Total rip off!
Easy use, clear documents scan!
by Mike J. R on 2020/11/25 21:34
I have 8 scan apps most have to many options making it harder than it should be for scanning a document or photo. This app scans, text is sharp, clear and saving were I want to save is easy. I have to give it a 5 out of 5. I haven’t purchased the paid premium yet. Have 2 more to test out, but doubt they have the simplicity to capture a document text as easy as this app.
Amazing
by mmg123......... on 2020/07/13 15:41
I had to have a pdf scanner for a class and I did a few free trials on different apps and ended up getting a subscription for this one because it is so good! I had to take pictures of my homework pages in the car and even though all the pictures were super blurry and shaky when I took them, the results were amazing- all of my pages turned out so clear! Highly recommend
Review
by yamahafzr71 on 2018/08/16 05:30
I love the app for the way it works and stores the information neatly and super organized. Price of subscription for full app is quite expensive for what it is and what I need it for You should offer to option one such as a subscription and second option $2.99 at to purchase for someone that is just looking for basically for better words a digital filing cabinet on his phone.
Scam
by krymdelakrym on 2018/11/05 00:23
I literally just needed to scan one document, but the app made me agree to the *optional* 3-day free trial and the $40 charge before I could even see the rest of the app. I was desperate, so I wrote down how it said to cancel and scanned my document. To be fair, it did scan pretty well, especially for an app. Once I was happy with my scan, I followed the instructions to cancel my subscription, but there was no “cancel subscription” in the app as was stated when I agreed to the trial. There is no way to cancel by computer either. I had to log into iTunes and go to “manage subscriptions” in order to finally cancel and avoid the $40 charge. Next time I’m just going to buy a printer.
Does not recognize textbook pages consistently
by Freeman Cooper on 2020/04/26 21:51
I downloaded this app so I could scan my textbook so I do not have to carry it with me everywhere. Whenever I use the manual or automatic setting for recognizing pages, it ALWAYS zooms in on a small section of the page and not the entire page. There have been a few times it will focus on the entire page, but a majority of the time it’s a hassle to deal with. If you value your time, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. I should not have to spend several minutes taking a picture and then correcting the size for a single page when I need to scan 80 other pages. I also paid for the pro package to use the OCR, but the OCR failed to recognize more than a few words on my documents. Wish I could get a refund because if I had known this was how the app would function, I would not have bought it. The quality of scans is ok, which is why I give it two stars instead of one.
Scanner App.!
by K Az. on 2018/07/09 23:18
I think so far it’s a great app.! It was alittle of a bummer when I found out I could only do 5 pages a day, (scanned and sent pages) but it is easy to use and simple to send a pdf to someone. And I was very happy to find it and not have to go to office supply center! My printer burned up in a fire and I really miss my scanner printer. All in all it’s very convenient, but I do not like being asked all the time to upgrade!! And I have to be careful not to hit the ok and accidentally sign up! One day maybe?
Good but it just needs one thing
by Jackieteaches2016 on 2017/11/27 03:14
I use this app so much as a teacher and also student. The only thing that is REALLY ANNOYING is the “auto select” (for lack of a better term). When I want to capture a page of something, the app automatically selects what it thinks I want to scan (9.5/10 times it’s wrong). It would easily be 5 stars if this feature was optional because it is so frustrating to try to scan the same thing again and again and again.
Awful app. Doesn’t scan properly and free trial tips you off
by DigiFreeze on 2019/09/26 01:59
I signed up for the three day free trial. I tested out a number of documents on different surfaces in different lighting conditions. The app is useless. I had to resort to manually cropping each individual photo. Would rather use built in camera function than this clunky app. Worse yet, when I went to cancel, I had already been charged 40 dollars. The company has refused to refund me. Charging customers a full years’ worth of subscription for a product they dislike after a trial period is bad business and disingenuous to your own product. Thanks for reading, everyone.
Fraud
by dontdownloadifyoulikemoney on 2019/02/19 18:45
This app is a complete scam. You have to call and unsubscribe as soon as you download this app. If you don’t you are immediately charged for a full year. You can call the 866 number to complain and it is a recording saying this charge was no t a mistake and then they hang up on you. This app is just hoping that you don’t want to fight with Apple to get your money back and they’ll keep it. You will have to contact your bank to dispute the charge and then contact Apple directly to receive a refund that takes up to 30 days to receive. Please read all reviews and report this app as a fraud if you come into contact with it!
NO MORE HASSEL
by MississippiArab on 2019/07/10 14:13
I am well into 6th decade & I’ve been scanning documents for well over 40 years...what a hassle but with this scanner App “the hassle is well over”. THIS APP IS SO EASY!!! It takes me about a minute to scan 21 pages. And I can scan anywhere in the e world. the old scanner way, would’ve been two hours to scan two pages and I would have had to find a scanner somewhere or go home.
Do not download
by Judie small on 2018/08/31 03:55
This app is a scam. I accidentally downloaded this app and it said it was free. I have to use my finger print when downloading an app. I immediately deleted the app after getting it, because I did not need it. A few days later I get a notification in my bank statement saying I was charged for the subscription. I tried contacting support but said that I could of canceled the subscription before the trial ended. When I downloaded the app my finger print must of been “agreeing” to the subscription and I had no idea. Now I’m out $40 I’m so upset with this company. I only had the app downloaded for minutes before deleting it.
SCAM - DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by abramski92 on 2020/03/26 14:35
It’s so sad that scams like this still exist. They tout everywhere that they are a free app, but sneakily sign you up for a subscription that doesn’t get charged for a while— they hope you’ve forgotten about it. Like many other reviewers, I downloaded and deleted this app in 1 day. They are relying on people who aren’t aware of how to cancel subscriptions (which is most people) to make money, which is very deceitful. I’ve disputed the charge on PayPal, reported suspicious activity on the App Store, and contacted them directly. Oh and of course I’ve canceled my “subscription.” I hope to get a full refund as it is not cheap!
Don’t Trust Free Trial
by Leah Elaine on 2018/07/01 18:42
This is a good app, but I too got charged because I did not understand how to cancel my subscription. This is more on the fault of iTunes than the app. iTunes needs to make the deletion of app subscriptions a more clear and well known process. However, it would help if apps like this had a “how to cancel subscription” notice so that users know to delete in their phone settings. Otherwise one feels like the app is hiding this info in order to scam.
Poor replacement for tiny scanner
by LavaPirate on 2019/06/12 22:50
I had tiny scanner (free vs) for several years that worked very well. Drawback was u could only save 2 docs at a time. It stopped working and only pro is available- but at least its only a one time five dollar purchase. This app instead charges five dollars a week if you want the pro version. Absurd. The free version has convinced me he pro is deinotely NOT worth it. Ok so it would eliminate the constant annoying ads that pop up constantly. But the real killer is it iust doesnt do well at scanning. It often cant tell where a legal size doc ends- cuts it short half the time. And he worst part is even when u play eith b/w or greyscale and the filters to try to get it as clean as possible for printing, it fails. Tiny scanner did a much better job. So when u actually need to print out a scanned doc, it looks terrible. A ditto mahine would be 1000xs better. Probsbly more like 1MM TIMES better. Will be deleting this crappyapp
Maybe it’s just me...
by Kaylasue14 on 2019/03/11 23:17
I like that I can do unlimited pages for a document. That feature is great. The negative aspects that are just driving me crazy, the auto detect doesn’t work well. I find I have to keep going back into the document and cropping it. Then the cropping tools, you have to scan, go back a page, then click threw a couple times to reach the cropping tool. VERY ANNOYING. I am doing massive scanning for my business and to have to go through this is rather tedious and I may just cancel even though I just purchased the membership today.
App Works Really Well, but waaaayyy too expensive
by cc app hater on 2019/08/09 19:26
Honestly if the free version was the same but just let me email my whole document at a time, this would be a five-star rating. I would even pay like a one-time $5 to get that feature. But instead it only lets me share 5 pages a day and it’s incredibly frustrating. I rarely need a scanner on my phone. I certainly don’t need it $40/year bad. It functions beautifully but it’s crazy over-priced and the free version limits it to near uselessness.
Impressive
by ceeblanco on 2019/04/29 10:35
Let me start off by saying, I always look for great apps to make things more convenient for my life. This app is trying amazing! I had a situation with my bank and I needed to fax some documents over and I didn’t have a fax machine. This scanner app gave me the ability to fill out their document scan it and email back within minutes! I love it!
Fake and just want people’s money
by Don't buy their subscription on 2019/02/26 12:45
I used this app because it was free for three days and then suddenly I got charged after three days. I was shocked because I didn’t have enough money in my account but this most idiot, poor and faulty app chat charged me. My balance is negative now which affects my credit history. They don’t say we don’t have access to people’s account for refund then how come you have access them to charge. Never ever buy their subscription. I hope there would be a negative rating for this app. I would like authorities to take notices about these fakes apps who just want people’s money.
Helpful
by misjustine on 2019/01/20 04:27
I am a contractor and am still stuck in my Post It and hand written notes world. I tried a couple different scanner apps bu found this one to be the most user friendly. It does what I need it to, and saves it to my cloud as well. Very happy with the app. I gave only 4 stars because the scanner is at times a little picky with capturing the document, but not enough to warrant me looking for a different app. Two thumbs up! Thank you.
Horrible. Is the same as you phone camera.
by Juliana Recart on 2020/01/23 08:08
Unbelievable. This app advertises and being capable of scanning a documento using your camera from your phone and turning it into a PDF file but it doesn’t do that at all. I scanned a PDF document that I need to send over email and the result of the “scanner” is the very same of taking a picture of the document. To make the experience even worse, I chose the option free trial ( 3 days ) and was affirmed I can cancel at any time but can’t find the option anywhere to cancel it before they charge me $43 or so for the whole year. That’s absurd.
Great App
by Cerberus2102 on 2018/12/28 15:52
So the app os fantastic! Does everything you could want with the ease of access you need! The only thing I don’t like is all the pop up stuff about upgrading. I get it, you wanna make money, but give me a break. Tell me the options available one time and then let it go. Now, I’m saying that.....If I scanned enough daily for a paid subscription it would be well worth it, but I don’t at least not currently.
Unnecessarily complicated
by gfhnhdjv on 2019/05/21 19:10
The app first offered multiple options for subscriptions to use the full features, then removed them when I came to purchase the original one I wanted. Did not fully explain the limitations that come without a full subscription. Outside of withholding information that would have been EXTREMELY useful prior to my using the app it works well. Personally I wouldn’t have minded paying but the hoops they made me jump through ruined the entire experience for me. Be ready to pay.
Great App!
by WyattBrule on 2019/02/24 18:04
Great so far, my only gripe is trying to crop the scanned document image, the software keeps moving the crop corners back to their original location. I also wish it would replace image text with actual text in the same size and format to reduce the size of the PDF. Also wish it would align text that’s wavy due to paper that isn’t flat (flatten). I think it tries to, but it could do better.
Horrible
by Obi1&&1!/:91 on 2020/04/03 14:34
Stop making apps that charge you after a couple of days so hard to unsubscribe from!! Predatory techniques at making money, not good business or showing any care for the customer! Edit: Whoever is running this company should be ashamed when they read the reviews Response to Developer: Thank you for explaining what signing up for a trial means. If you read, the problem with the app is how difficult it was to unsubscribe from it. Kept asking for information that was never made available in order to unsubscribe.
Subscription
by Wolflover0 on 2018/07/31 15:00
I accidentally signed up for the 3 day trial then subscription. I immediately emailed support and tried to cancel. The instructions they sent me to cancel were difficult for me. I emailed them again on the third day for assistance on cancelling. I did not receive a second response from support. I finally was able to access the subscription and cancel it today. They have already charged my account. I have never used the subscription features. I do not want it. I’m very upset that I’ve been charged $40ish because I did not get precise instructions on cancelling.

Cant turn off subscription
by upsetchild2020 on 2021/05/12 12:41
There is no way to turn off the subscription. It auto bills you and won’t let you cancel the subscription. So far I’m still waiting for customer support to contact me via email about canceling subscription.
Scammer App
by pissedoffroi on 2021/05/08 16:51
No way to cancel subscription during or after free trial. No way to contact them and ask. Clearly an effort to try and get people to sign up for free trials and then scam them into having to pay for the app until they cancel the card.

The Best Scanner of all

Scan Hero is very easy to use. It does a better job than my large printer/ scanner. And it has an OCR works very well. But the scans are very clear. The Scan Hero locks in on the page or paper and takes a very nice and clear copy. Whoever made this app has done a wonderful job of it.

Half of the pictures were turned sideways. Had to retake them multiple times to turn them vertical. Then the app kicked me out twice and I had to turn my phone off and back on twice to get it to work end when the app came back up it didn’t save half of my progress each time. Would not pay for this app.

App only allows you to take a certain amount of scans and share only 5 pages of scans per day for free. If you want to share more, you have to pay a ridiculous amount of money in order to share more than 5 page per day. I recommend not using this app.

by Lady Wild on 2021/01/28 13:21
Buyer beware. This app advertises as free but the fine print says otherwise. They pull you in with false information, and claim that you can easily cancel after the trial. I am trying to cancel right now and have found it almost impossible to speak with anyone or find help with canceling a subscription I did not want. You’d be better off using the notes app from apple that comes with your phone. Don’t make my mistake.

by BMM&BSM on 2019/05/06 18:21
The app worked perfectly for an important document I was taking care of for my husband. Easy interface and capable of many mailing options including printing. I had 9 pages to scan, our printer wasn’t scanning so this was a great substitute. It only took a few minutes to do scan and send. As for subscriptions: READ people! Take responsibility for your decision- you really think this type of app is free to develop and keep up to date. I’m not a geek but I’m aware that I need to read about what they offer and their terms and all the information was there about the free use for 3 days and I had 3 days to cancel, and they were great about telling me where I needed to go to cancel. It was right up front.
You Scammed Me
by kevinch0514 on 2018/06/10 04:22
I looked into this app knowing that it was free and because I need this for a school project. The first thing this app asked me was a subscription with a free trial followed by monthly payments. Knowing that I can unsubscribe anytime, I subscribed to the app only to find out that the app didn’t suit my needs. I immediately uninstalled the app from my phone and went to the App Store to remove the subscription. Somehow, this app still had access to my account and took money from me, which I was notified of today because I didn’t have enough money in my account. This is not ethical, and I want to get my money back. As proof, I can send the photo of my downloads. This app was downloaded on May 1, 2018 and deleted May 1, 2018. Please address this concern. Thank you. EDIT: To whom it may concern, I did go to the App Store and remove my subscription. I don’t understand how it my removal did not work. Again, I downloaded the app and found out it doesn’t work well on my phone. I then deleted the app from my phone and went to the App Store. I made sure that I removed my subscription the day I registered for the subscription. Somehow my cancellation did not work. I know how to unsubscribe from apps from previous experiences on my personal device and other devices. I just don’t understand how the I couldn’t unsubscribe this one time. Thanks for your response.
Charged $43 for free trial that I cancelled BEFORE free trial ended.
by kaitlyntk on 2019/02/07 20:37
I am very disappointed with the developers of this app. I temporarily needed this app to scan some paperwork for school, so upon opening the apps, after it gave subscription options, I chose the 3-day FREE trial. After I scanned the documents that I needed to scan, I promptly went into my App Store profile and went ahead and cancelled my subscription to be sure I didn’t get charged once the free-trial ended. All was well. A couple of hours later, I checked my bank account and noticed that my there was an apple store transaction for $43... mind you that it was a 3-day FREE trial and I was charged for a 1-year subscription to the app within hours. I never authorized this purchase and never provided and password, fingerprint or anything to verify or authorize the purchase. Overall, the app itself is fine, but because of this “scam” I would not suggest this app to anyone, nor will I ever purchase it again. I am not one to write reviews, but I am very upset and disappointed with this situation.
Buggy and Infuriating but Works If You Have No Other Choice
by reviewer585959 on 2020/02/14 16:34
I do not recommend this app to anyone trying to get something done quickly, easily, and/or effectively. It’s full of bugs, crashes often, takes forever to apply edits and randomly reverts images back to their original form, and won’t let you send anything to yourself unless you buy their premium subscription which is ridiculously overpriced and used to be free. Even after you break down and buy the subscription because you have no time to do anything else, it takes two or three app restarts to get it to recognize that you’re a premium member and let you send anything. This app is a recipe for frustration and again I do not recommend it, but if you have no other way to get something scanned, I will admit that it EVENTUALLY produced a legitimate copy of a document I needed and so will probably do the same for you. Or you could just go find a different app that works correctly.
Like being relentlessly bombarded by ads?
by Schwadam on 2017/10/08 10:24
I couldn't make a single move with this app without being dragged to the App Store and having some random app thrown in my face. I've never had to fight through so much crap to execute a simple function before. You hold it above a document and once it's got it in focus, it automatically takes the picture and cues itself for the next page, and this function seemed to work very well, actually. Then, I selected three of the six pages (the limit of the free version of the app) of the document to email to myself. What arrived was the first page, followed by some blankness which it called "pages 2 and 3". So, the violent onslaught of ads, combined with its failure to include the three scanned pages that it claimed it would send in the email attachment earns it zero stars! I will admit that it was good at the scanning part. Maybe everything functions properly when you buy the full version, but the free version doesn't even do what it claims it will do, and that makes me sad.
Sneaky
by temporalJavelin on 2019/10/04 13:35
It’s a really great app! Gets the job done exactly how I want, zero issues. I have no interest in paying for this app and the functionality of the free version is great. That being said it is a little misleading because it makes it seem like you’re required to either pay or start a free trial (and eventually pay) to use it which isn’t true. There’s a small x in the corner of these pop ups but if you don’t know what you’re looking for it seems like you can’t use it without paying money or agreeing to pay money in the future.
The most annoying and inconvenient app ever
by YejOh on 2018/06/21 14:39
I downloaded this app to take a picture and scan just one document. I deleted it right after and had my automatic renewals setting turned off on my iTunes account but still got charged. After being charged I went and double checked that I wasn't subscribed for another week and it seemed like I wasn't. I got charged again. I checked AGAIN and there is no "unsubscribe" or "cancel subscription" button. I contacted the support team and they responded with: A successfully cancelled subscription should have its expiration date specified, have no subscription option selected and no "cancel subscription" button available. --to my knowledge all this was and still is true and yet if I get charged for another week I will be so much more furious than I already am! This app is not worth the hassle of using once unless you don't mind it eating slowly eating your money.
Better apps out there
by kailsone on 2019/02/09 23:42
I downloaded this app to scan 12”x18” documents for work. It helped me get the job done, so for that: 2 stars. However, the UI is not super friendly, there were some glitches when I tried to upload photos to my library, and the app processes photos with a high contrast filter. My documents were white and I took the photos on a black table as recommended. Still, the resolution came out not great. Why anyone would pay $40/year for a subscription is beyond me. I originally signed up for the 3-day free trial (which automatically enrolls into a year subscription if you don’t end it within 48 hours of downloading the app!!) It took me about 30 minutes to figure out how to end the subscription in my iTunes account. This could be a problem with iTunes itself, so I won’t blame Scanner. Anyways, would not recommend!
Good image quality, but horrible cropping tool

If you are going to use this app to scan from camera or photos app, it will give you good image quality compared to other apps I’ve used not compared to a 600+ dpi scanner, of course. The downside of this app is it’s cropping tool. It takes me too long to crop an image nicely with their current cropping tool. It’s so imprecise you could only guess you are cropping the edges. I’ve mainly use this app to combine pages I scan with my desk scanner and to split pages into separate files. The app is awesome to combine files from different sources, not optimized to split files though, because you can only do it with one or two extra steps. Once they fix the cropping tool I will give one extra star.
You can take pictures with your phone just as easily
by ComboRobo on 2019/07/24 01:35
I got the app in order to take pictures of documents (of course) for enrollment for my benefits at work. I’ve used a docuscan through the Dropbox app and fell in love with the scanner. Unfortunately I can’t use the Dropbox to email docs from my phone so I searched for an app that I can just save documents to my phone. I was disappointed when realizing these apps require paid subscriptions but I downloaded this one anyway. I couldn’t believe the lack of quality for this app despite the requirement to pay a subscription for it. The document sensor is off and clips non document backgrounds and the quality of the image is lack luster. I was just as well off taking pictures of my documents with my camera phone with no app and sending them. Very unprofessional looking, I hope my HR department even accepts them.
Can’t email?
by dombrager on 2020/10/22 15:41
App keeps telling me that I need to set up an email to send scans but does not give any place (that I could find) to set up an email address??? I need these files emailed to me so what am I supposed to do? Update: you need to go into your phone and actually change your settings for your whole phone which I personally think is not something I want to do. There’s a reason I didn’t have an email address connected to my phone. Also the app should have those instructions somewhere instead of leaving the user hanging. Just saying “you need to set up and email address” does nothing to help me. Especially since most functioning apps allow you to set up an email address within them. I think it’s poorly designed but whatever.
Bad News — HORRIBLE App
by Dj this stinks on 2020/05/16 20:54
Since you updated this app it’s been very difficult to manage. Please put it back the way it was and I will give you five stars again. But, leave it this way and I will drop it down to a -5 if I could. It’s difficult to know where to go to scan. After I hit everything a pull down menu shows up with scan at the very, very bottom. It’s a SCANNER to scan something should be placed at the top of the app not at the bottom of a pull down menu. I don’t like this app anymore. The scan button goes round and round about ten times before it clicks. I finally found the scan button but this whole app needs to be put back the way it was eight months or so ago before the update. It wasn’t broken — now it is — FIX IT, please!!
System Failure
by Light Dweller on 2019/03/24 05:22
I downloaded this app last past summer. There wasn’t much I needed to send, and it ended up not working well for me, even when I added the free trail to try for better usage. Once that proved ineffective along with the poor organization of the app, the ambiguous layout of features, and the layers of fine print, I terminated my subscription and deleted the app. It was worthless. This last month, I noticed an odd charge on my bank statement. In spite of going into iTunes, canceling the subscription, and deleting the app months ago, I’d been charged for almost eight months!!! I reached out for help to end my subscription and seek restitution for this misuse of mutual trust and ethical dealing. This is unacceptable, and I see in the reviews that I’m not the only unfortunate drained by your parasitic app and its fine print.
Couldn’t quite figure it out, but help arrived. Great app!!
by SuzuQ14 on 2017/10/10 02:53
Easy to scan and scans well. I’m by no means very tech smart so I struggled to send 5 copies to the same place. The tutoring that they offer only shows how to capture the image which ch is great, but to novices like myself, it’d be so much better to give more ‘how to information... HOWEVER, the developers left me a message following my review and it was super easy. Hopefully they’ve corrected the tutoring option for us non-techies... lol If you ever have any trouble, the app’s customer service is very quick to respond and help. Great app! 😃
A Good Scanner but I wish it would..NEW UPDATE ⭐️
by Tradermama on 2020/08/05 11:01
This scanner app is pretty easy with the one single exception, one cannot increase the size of your text when you want to review a document ! Ive tried everything I could think of but to NO AVAIL! I open a document to see what it says and the font is so tiny you can’t make out what the darn thing says! Example I tried to read a date on a insurance policy to see if the insurance was still active and forgot it!! I’ve tried emailing support and I hope they respond soon! Other than that I would have given it 5 ⭐️ stars! A NEW UPDATE! This scanner is now a FIVE STAR ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ app! With in minutes of emailing support I received a reply with the most simple instructions on how to increase the document in order for me to read it!! ( Im almost embarrassed as I didn’t think of everything to solve my dilemma... SO MANY THANKS 🙏🏼 YOUR APP IS AWESOME AND SO IS YOUR SUPPORT!!
BEWARE: Avoid
by DylanCobain on 2019/01/14 21:30
Figured there would be a free version like with some other scanner apps, but user is auto-enrolled to a subscription. Developer response here will be that it can and should be cancelled on my end. Here’s the thing. The app (already deleted) will show up in your “purchased” but if you go to cancel the subscription, as I have, during the trial period through apple settings, the app is not listed and no cancellation is possible within the trial period from what I can see. Instead, I froze my Apple Pay and payment information before this bait and switch operation takes $40 bucks. Run. I’ll deal with the adds from other scanning apps (which I was also already bombarded with in the 10 minutes of figuring out how to get rid of this app).
Scam
by T.B.2018 on 2018/09/21 18:23
Do not use this app! I downloaded it for free because I needed to scan a few things. I then deleted the app from my phone and thought I was done. This morning I got hit with a $40 charge out of the blue. This app relies on the fact that subscription cancelation is a separate process from deleting the app; it’s deceptive, unfair, and disappointing. The app is looking to swindle anybody who doesn’t spend their entire day reading the thousands of pages of user agreements we’re all subject to just for existing in a technologically sophisticated world. So much for good faith and fair dealing! My refund request through Apple was denied, and $40 is a lot of money for a grad student with no income. Bottom line: don’t bother with this app because it preys upon people who assume that the company is acting in good faith.
Horrible
by Acb84 on 2020/02/17 19:56
Not sure who is writing these reviews but I regret this (accidental) pro subscription. This app is horrible at capturing VERY clear and defined pages. Wife has another app that was MUCH CHEAPER that’s able to capture pages on the FIRST try without having to hover over a page for days on end for this piece of **** to recognize it. Even still you have to go back into the image to trim the edges (which is upsetting given the obvious contrast between the black surface and the white 8.5 x 11 piece of paper. SMH. Worst decision of my life [insert face palm]
Incredibly useful and always works
by wknmama on 2018/05/31 16:23
Much more efficient than purchasing a scanner for home. Also serves as a file folder to always have with me. Extremely practical for a small business or just a busy person who hates the clutter of paper. Hasn’t had any meltdowns, is always ready and the ads on the app are discreet so you can still get the job done without flipping through the constant pop ups that some other apps have. Great deal for a free app!
App Works Fine, Charged Me a Yearly Subscription after 3 Days
by cturney on 2019/01/08 16:37
App works decent for what it is: a way to take pictures and automatically convert to PDFs. I downloaded this app and agreed to the free trial period. When I read it, I thought it was a 7 day trial. It’s my fault for misreading, but there was no notification from my phone like other subscriptions that it was about to renew/convert to a $40 charge. Again, I misread, BUT all of my other subscriptions have alerted me and this one did not. It wouldn’t have been a big issue if it had been $5, but $40 is a MUCH different issue. Pretty unhappy overall with this issue.
Meh
by sarahb37 on 2018/12/05 17:17
I downloaded this app for the free trial, intending to only use once as a convenient option to a scanner. Upon using for the first time, I found that it would not focus in on the documents I was scanning and would not allow for manual capture of documents. It would try to crop out bits and could hardly capture the full document. I had to end up finding a scanner to make the scans come out correctly, so this was useless for what I needed. Also, the app will automatically subscribe for you to begin paying a yearly subscription ($39) without mention. So be sure to either change that option or delete your subscription on your account after a few days before it charges you!
Scanning has never been easier!
by Mahersinjary on 2018/03/06 19:42
As Graphic designer I scan very often, especially the illustrations that I sketch on paper then I need to refine them and color them so I scan them using ‘Scanner for Me’ app and I love it. Because it gets me. I usually need the outline in black color and it has the feature where you can actually makes it only black and white so the result is so easy to convert it to a vector visual and use it as the base of my artwork. Thanks for this great app!
Charged for year subscription; did not want!!!
by kscanjipped on 2019/01/07 19:52
I was charged for the years subscription when I only intended to use the app one time. I assumed the app would do the monthly subscription and I would cancel. I have contacted apple and they will not refund my money. App works fine, but a shady way of doing business. I was glad to pay for my usage, but I do NOT want nor do I NEED this for a year. It’s a shame no one is willing to help. Great app, but lousy support!!! I do not recommend. I take responsibility for assuming the app would only renew at the smallest subscription, but it only renewed 2 days ago and for a year. I don’t understand why this can’t be changed to one month and my additional money refunded.
Be warned! They auto convert trial to paid and in 48 hours
by Ptk1071 on 2018/09/13 03:34
Saw this app in store from ad and said it was free to try. I downloaded and installed and didn’t get to try it and was auto subscribed for almost 50 bucks. Only after that did I see that there was a no refund policy. Deceptive policy to say the least. They should give at least a week or two or limited trial before opting to buy. I may have like this app but had to give it one star due to taking my money without adequate notice there was no way to back out. Dev response is typical and inadequate. Don’t download this app unless you want to get charged after 72 hours, barely enough time to even look at the app. Total rip off!
Easy use, clear documents scan!
by Mike J. R on 2020/11/25 21:34
I have 8 scan apps most have to many options making it harder than it should be for scanning a document or photo. This app scans, text is sharp, clear and saving were I want to save is easy. I have to give it a 5 out of 5. I haven’t purchased the paid premium yet. Have 2 more to test out, but doubt they have the simplicity to capture a document text as easy as this app.
Amazing
by mmg123......... on 2020/07/13 15:41
I had to have a pdf scanner for a class and I did a few free trials on different apps and ended up getting a subscription for this one because it is so good! I had to take pictures of my homework pages in the car and even though all the pictures were super blurry and shaky when I took them, the results were amazing- all of my pages turned out so clear! Highly recommend
Review
by yamahafzr71 on 2018/08/16 05:30
I love the app for the way it works and stores the information neatly and super organized. Price of subscription for full app is quite expensive for what it is and what I need it for You should offer to option one such as a subscription and second option $2.99 at to purchase for someone that is just looking for basically for better words a digital filing cabinet on his phone.
Scam
by krymdelakrym on 2018/11/05 00:23
I literally just needed to scan one document, but the app made me agree to the *optional* 3-day free trial and the $40 charge before I could even see the rest of the app. I was desperate, so I wrote down how it said to cancel and scanned my document. To be fair, it did scan pretty well, especially for an app. Once I was happy with my scan, I followed the instructions to cancel my subscription, but there was no “cancel subscription” in the app as was stated when I agreed to the trial. There is no way to cancel by computer either. I had to log into iTunes and go to “manage subscriptions” in order to finally cancel and avoid the $40 charge. Next time I’m just going to buy a printer.
Does not recognize textbook pages consistently
by Freeman Cooper on 2020/04/26 21:51
I downloaded this app so I could scan my textbook so I do not have to carry it with me everywhere. Whenever I use the manual or automatic setting for recognizing pages, it ALWAYS zooms in on a small section of the page and not the entire page. There have been a few times it will focus on the entire page, but a majority of the time it’s a hassle to deal with. If you value your time, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP. I should not have to spend several minutes taking a picture and then correcting the size for a single page when I need to scan 80 other pages. I also paid for the pro package to use the OCR, but the OCR failed to recognize more than a few words on my documents. Wish I could get a refund because if I had known this was how the app would function, I would not have bought it. The quality of scans is ok, which is why I give it two stars instead of one.
Scanner App.!
by K Az. on 2018/07/09 23:18
I think so far it’s a great app.! It was alittle of a bummer when I found out I could only do 5 pages a day, (scanned and sent pages) but it is easy to use and simple to send a pdf to someone. And I was very happy to find it and not have to go to office supply center! My printer burned up in a fire and I really miss my scanner printer. All in all it’s very convenient, but I do not like being asked all the time to upgrade!! And I have to be careful not to hit the ok and accidentally sign up! One day maybe?
Good but it just needs one thing
by Jackieteaches2016 on 2017/11/27 03:14
I use this app so much as a teacher and also student. The only thing that is REALLY ANNOYING is the “auto select” (for lack of a better term). When I want to capture a page of something, the app automatically selects what it thinks I want to scan (9.5/10 times it’s wrong). It would easily be 5 stars if this feature was optional because it is so frustrating to try to scan the same thing again and again and again.
Awful app. Doesn’t scan properly and free trial tips you off
by DigiFreeze on 2019/09/26 01:59
I signed up for the three day free trial. I tested out a number of documents on different surfaces in different lighting conditions. The app is useless. I had to resort to manually cropping each individual photo. Would rather use built in camera function than this clunky app. Worse yet, when I went to cancel, I had already been charged 40 dollars. The company has refused to refund me. Charging customers a full years’ worth of subscription for a product they dislike after a trial period is bad business and disingenuous to your own product. Thanks for reading, everyone.
Fraud
by dontdownloadifyoulikemoney on 2019/02/19 18:45
This app is a complete scam. You have to call and unsubscribe as soon as you download this app. If you don’t you are immediately charged for a full year. You can call the 866 number to complain and it is a recording saying this charge was no t a mistake and then they hang up on you. This app is just hoping that you don’t want to fight with Apple to get your money back and they’ll keep it. You will have to contact your bank to dispute the charge and then contact Apple directly to receive a refund that takes up to 30 days to receive. Please read all reviews and report this app as a fraud if you come into contact with it!
NO MORE HASSEL
by MississippiArab on 2019/07/10 14:13
I am well into 6th decade & I’ve been scanning documents for well over 40 years...what a hassle but with this scanner App “the hassle is well over”. THIS APP IS SO EASY!!! It takes me about a minute to scan 21 pages. And I can scan anywhere in the e world. the old scanner way, would’ve been two hours to scan two pages and I would have had to find a scanner somewhere or go home.
Do not download
by Judie small on 2018/08/31 03:55
This app is a scam. I accidentally downloaded this app and it said it was free. I have to use my finger print when downloading an app. I immediately deleted the app after getting it, because I did not need it. A few days later I get a notification in my bank statement saying I was charged for the subscription. I tried contacting support but said that I could of canceled the subscription before the trial ended. When I downloaded the app my finger print must of been “agreeing” to the subscription and I had no idea. Now I’m out $40 I’m so upset with this company. I only had the app downloaded for minutes before deleting it.
SCAM - DO NOT DOWNLOAD
by abramski92 on 2020/03/26 14:35
It’s so sad that scams like this still exist. They tout everywhere that they are a free app, but sneakily sign you up for a subscription that doesn’t get charged for a while— they hope you’ve forgotten about it. Like many other reviewers, I downloaded and deleted this app in 1 day. They are relying on people who aren’t aware of how to cancel subscriptions (which is most people) to make money, which is very deceitful. I’ve disputed the charge on PayPal, reported suspicious activity on the App Store, and contacted them directly. Oh and of course I’ve canceled my “subscription.” I hope to get a full refund as it is not cheap!
Don’t Trust Free Trial
by Leah Elaine on 2018/07/01 18:42
This is a good app, but I too got charged because I did not understand how to cancel my subscription. This is more on the fault of iTunes than the app. iTunes needs to make the deletion of app subscriptions a more clear and well known process. However, it would help if apps like this had a “how to cancel subscription” notice so that users know to delete in their phone settings. Otherwise one feels like the app is hiding this info in order to scam.
Poor replacement for tiny scanner
by LavaPirate on 2019/06/12 22:50
I had tiny scanner (free vs) for several years that worked very well. Drawback was u could only save 2 docs at a time. It stopped working and only pro is available- but at least its only a one time five dollar purchase. This app instead charges five dollars a week if you want the pro version. Absurd. The free version has convinced me he pro is deinotely NOT worth it. Ok so it would eliminate the constant annoying ads that pop up constantly. But the real killer is it iust doesnt do well at scanning. It often cant tell where a legal size doc ends- cuts it short half the time. And he worst part is even when u play eith b/w or greyscale and the filters to try to get it as clean as possible for printing, it fails. Tiny scanner did a much better job. So when u actually need to print out a scanned doc, it looks terrible. A ditto mahine would be 1000xs better. Probsbly more like 1MM TIMES better. Will be deleting this crappyapp
Maybe it’s just me...
by Kaylasue14 on 2019/03/11 23:17
I like that I can do unlimited pages for a document. That feature is great. The negative aspects that are just driving me crazy, the auto detect doesn’t work well. I find I have to keep going back into the document and cropping it. Then the cropping tools, you have to scan, go back a page, then click threw a couple times to reach the cropping tool. VERY ANNOYING. I am doing massive scanning for my business and to have to go through this is rather tedious and I may just cancel even though I just purchased the membership today.
App Works Really Well, but waaaayyy too expensive
by cc app hater on 2019/08/09 19:26
Honestly if the free version was the same but just let me email my whole document at a time, this would be a five-star rating. I would even pay like a one-time $5 to get that feature. But instead it only lets me share 5 pages a day and it’s incredibly frustrating. I rarely need a scanner on my phone. I certainly don’t need it $40/year bad. It functions beautifully but it’s crazy over-priced and the free version limits it to near uselessness.
Impressive
by ceeblanco on 2019/04/29 10:35
Let me start off by saying, I always look for great apps to make things more convenient for my life. This app is trying amazing! I had a situation with my bank and I needed to fax some documents over and I didn’t have a fax machine. This scanner app gave me the ability to fill out their document scan it and email back within minutes! I love it!
Fake and just want people’s money
by Don't buy their subscription on 2019/02/26 12:45
I used this app because it was free for three days and then suddenly I got charged after three days. I was shocked because I didn’t have enough money in my account but this most idiot, poor and faulty app chat charged me. My balance is negative now which affects my credit history. They don’t say we don’t have access to people’s account for refund then how come you have access them to charge. Never ever buy their subscription. I hope there would be a negative rating for this app. I would like authorities to take notices about these fakes apps who just want people’s money.
Helpful
by misjustine on 2019/01/20 04:27
I am a contractor and am still stuck in my Post It and hand written notes world. I tried a couple different scanner apps bu found this one to be the most user friendly. It does what I need it to, and saves it to my cloud as well. Very happy with the app. I gave only 4 stars because the scanner is at times a little picky with capturing the document, but not enough to warrant me looking for a different app. Two thumbs up! Thank you.
Horrible. Is the same as you phone camera.
by Juliana Recart on 2020/01/23 08:08
Unbelievable. This app advertises and being capable of scanning a documento using your camera from your phone and turning it into a PDF file but it doesn’t do that at all. I scanned a PDF document that I need to send over email and the result of the “scanner” is the very same of taking a picture of the document. To make the experience even worse, I chose the option free trial ( 3 days ) and was affirmed I can cancel at any time but can’t find the option anywhere to cancel it before they charge me $43 or so for the whole year. That’s absurd.
Great App
by Cerberus2102 on 2018/12/28 15:52
So the app os fantastic! Does everything you could want with the ease of access you need! The only thing I don’t like is all the pop up stuff about upgrading. I get it, you wanna make money, but give me a break. Tell me the options available one time and then let it go. Now, I’m saying that.....If I scanned enough daily for a paid subscription it would be well worth it, but I don’t at least not currently.
Unnecessarily complicated
by gfhnhdjv on 2019/05/21 19:10
The app first offered multiple options for subscriptions to use the full features, then removed them when I came to purchase the original one I wanted. Did not fully explain the limitations that come without a full subscription. Outside of withholding information that would have been EXTREMELY useful prior to my using the app it works well. Personally I wouldn’t have minded paying but the hoops they made me jump through ruined the entire experience for me. Be ready to pay.
Great App!
by WyattBrule on 2019/02/24 18:04
Great so far, my only gripe is trying to crop the scanned document image, the software keeps moving the crop corners back to their original location. I also wish it would replace image text with actual text in the same size and format to reduce the size of the PDF. Also wish it would align text that’s wavy due to paper that isn’t flat (flatten). I think it tries to, but it could do better.
Horrible
by Obi1&&1!/:91 on 2020/04/03 14:34
Stop making apps that charge you after a couple of days so hard to unsubscribe from!! Predatory techniques at making money, not good business or showing any care for the customer! Edit: Whoever is running this company should be ashamed when they read the reviews Response to Developer: Thank you for explaining what signing up for a trial means. If you read, the problem with the app is how difficult it was to unsubscribe from it. Kept asking for information that was never made available in order to unsubscribe.
Subscription
by Wolflover0 on 2018/07/31 15:00
I accidentally signed up for the 3 day trial then subscription. I immediately emailed support and tried to cancel. The instructions they sent me to cancel were difficult for me. I emailed them again on the third day for assistance on cancelling. I did not receive a second response from support. I finally was able to access the subscription and cancel it today. They have already charged my account. I have never used the subscription features. I do not want it. I’m very upset that I’ve been charged $40ish because I did not get precise instructions on cancelling.
