  • Saving photos

    By Snowlady32
    My mom has tons of photos from when my siblings and I where kids. She has been saying for years she wanted to digitize them. This app has helped us do that and it is really easy to use.

  • Best free scanner there is

    By Teddyftl
    I’ve taken old photographs, birth certificates, and other important documents, and digitized them using this scanner. I had played around with so many others, but the fact that whatever you’re trying to scam in is photographed 5 times ensures highest quality of the images/content, so that others may enjoy the clarity and details. If you need to digitize anything really, start with this app first so that you can compare the ease of use to others.

    It’s pretty simple to figure out and then scan and send to others. It does a great job and so much easier than using a scanner.
  • Very Easy

    Very easy to use, adjust, and sync with your Google photos. Much easier than scanning every picture.
  • Photo Albums

    By Icelyn Grey
    This has been a great tool to use as I’ve been digitalizing all my parents photo albums, and now we have access to them all the time. It really quickly scans them, and it’s very easy to use. It’s also free! I love it.
