I'm impressed!


The app performs as advertised and is easy to use. I'm digitizing a few thousand photos and this app has been a life/money saver. I'm anxious for few upgrades like access between devices without uploading to Dropbox, etc. Also any tool that helps reduce glare would be fantastic. Last, the ability to choose the music for shareable folders would make that feature perfect! $5 is a great deal for this app. I definitely recommend it!

Developer Response

Thank you for your positive feedback and great suggestions. Some of these features are already on the way!

Amazing results


I’m putting together a family album and was handed a stack of old photo albums from the basement. This app did an amazing job scanning all of the pictures clearly, no matter the size. The editing tools were better than what’s available in the iOS Photos app and easy to use. Love it!

Developer Response

Delighted that you are enjoying our app. Please email us if you'd like 'tip sheets' to get the most out of this app. Also, do periodically back up your scans to iCloud, Dropbox or any other free cloud service (tap Export > Show all > choose service:)

What am I paying for?


I’ve only tried 1 old pic and it was slightly curved and the app did NOTHING more than take a pic of my pic. Don’t need an app to do that! Then even though I paid for the Gold version I had to pay another $3 to save it to my camera roll.

Your response is NOT true! I tried to save an uncaptioned photo to camera roll and required to make in app purchase. If it’s not required give me my money back!

Developer Response

Sorry, you are wrong: Export function lets you 'Exclude' or 'Include' captions & borders. "Exclude" allows UNLIMITED free exports. "Include" entails a one-time purchase (If you haven't added any captions, then just a white border is added). "Include captions" option was added recently on a few users' request and is optional. The small fee is to defray our development cost and will be dropped once the cost has been recovered. We have sent you instructions on how to get a full refund.

Previous response:
1) You'll get 100% accurate cropping by following these tips (Also shown when you first launched the app): 2) The app allows unlimited free exports to Camera Roll, Dropbox, Facebook and ALL other photo apps and cloud services. What you mention is the optional feature of exporting captions (annotations) along with the photos. For more customized help, please email us. Thanks!
