What's New in Version 2.1.2
Fixes iPhone rotation bug
Pic Scanner is practical and easy to use, and produces surprisingly good scans. Although the app allows you to scan 4 photos at once, I found out that it’s better to only do one or two at a time. It doesn’t take much longer but gives real sharper scans.
Without doubt the best photo scanner app I came across this year. Does a far better job on photos than other document scanner apps I tried out and does not force you to upload personal photos to their server. Highly recommended.
A must have!
Pic scanner is an absolute must have if you need to scan old pictures into your library. I use it all the time and it's well worth the $2.99 for the unlimited scanning. I can't say enough good things about it!
