Great app

This is an awesome app. But it can be a little tedious having to deal with all the prompts in between each page you are scanning. One prompt that they can do away with is the one that asks you if it's a new or existing document when you're in the middle of doing a multiple page document. If you're in the middle of a document, it should just go without saying that you are adding another scanned page to the one you're in. If you were wanting to create a new document, you would normally close out the one you were in and then begin a new document from there. Also, it should default to camera rather than asking you the source. If you want to pull from another source, there should be a button on the screen that you can select to do so. The prompt really isn't necessary. All it does is slow you down more. And when you're creating a document with several pages, this can be an unnecessary waste of time.

This app will double eat your and make your phone unusable

A few months ago I would've said this was a nifty, convenient app that did a good job making scans, but recently I had need to make some longer scans, 10 pages which I sent to my email so I can upload it to my computer. The entire phone froze up and got very, very hot in my hand. I was unable to access my email, and the battery power drained over a short period, despite the fact I wasn't doing anything else with the phone. Worse, I ran out of data space on my phone, more than 15 GB of data was blocked out by sending two of these scans, and I ultimately had to strip my phone down to factory settings in order to get rid of over 30 GB of "documents and data" that cannot be removed in any other way. This is the worst and most dangerous app I have ever seen. It seems to work well for one page scans, but try sending anything much larger than three or four pages, and you are screwed.

Great for scanning receipts and documents on the fly

As a full time road warrior, I use the scanning app nearly every day and have recommended to many others. Mostly, in between flights and meetings I use the app to scan receipts and easily upload to my company's expense portal (Concur) ready to be attached when an expense is billed. This makes keeping up with multiple receipts much easier. I also use to store and send hard documents. It's a portable scanner that is always with me. Genius!!

I also use Genius Fax, but rarely due to the cost per page - still easier than locating a business services proprietor. I can fax when rarely needed from anywhere.

Highly recommended for all road warriors.
