Solid, but slow

I do a lot of scanning. It’s my main archiving tool for documents I receive. I bought this to replace the OEM Epson software that does not work after El Capitan was installed. I tried the latest Epson update supposed to fix the problems but it ddoesn’t on my GT-S50 document scanner.

This program works much better. The scan feature is very solid and works great. I enjoy the thumbnails as it scans. The concurrent OCR is a useful feature. I don’t use the other features. The only negative is the scan time is slow. I truly appreciate the simplicity and great operation of the program. I would rather scan once slowly that have scanner errors. Saves time in the long run.

Great for everyday usage.

From what I’ve experienced the past few months of using this app, it is great at what I need it to do.
Which is to just view my pdf documents. I don’t know how to use the other functions and so I can’t really say much about that.
If you're planning to just use this for viewing pdf files, this app is great.

Tried many and this won out

If there is a PDF reader out there I have tried it and deleted it, with the exception of this app. Very easy to use for form filling, which I use for contracts and other emailed forms to businesses and never have any issues. Just download it and use it, you will be happy with it. Have not paid for the app, just using the free version.
