Ratings and Reviews


Very cool

Tons of photos can be saved (over30).
Saves note urls
Very artistic looking too


Great app. Could be better with editing in Evernote

This is a great app. I also love that it supports my local newspaper. I would give it five stars if I could edit the shortcut note in Evernote. Right now, it is locked when I open the Kooaba page scan in Evernote. I can't write what I liked about the article or make comments. I can, however, make comments in the Shortcut app. Overall, a very good app.


What it does…

…it does nicely and elegantly. Yes, you'll read all kinds of complaints that this app lacks a myriad of features that the complainer would like it to have but that just aren't included because that's not where the developers want to take it. It just gets so tiresome. I feel sorry for those people.
