Thanks everyone for your feedback!
Incredible! I love it!
Easily gets 5 stars from me. A truly great app to get any person's photo into Ancestry and your Photo Stream. Even if the photo of the person is at an angle, you can crop the photo at that angle to un-skew the image! I do wish, however, that the shape of the cropping area was selectable and, each time, could be constrained to your choice of either a rectangle, a parallelogram, or a trapezoid rather than me having to tediously place each corner of the cropping tool - please consider this enhancement! Super app anyway!!
Love this App!!!!!!!
This is now my most used app. It just amazes me every time I capture a photo and are able to link directly to the family member in my tree. Well done guys. You only need to create a iPad version. My app icon disappeared with this last update. What's up with that?
A great convenience!
Makes it very easy to scan pictures that are in frames. And you can link them to someone in your tree very easily too. Thank you!
