    Needed to enlarge some music for a friend with low vision. It made scanning 30 pages easy and allowed me to enlarge the print for my friend. A time saver and life saver.

    One of the best business apps I’ve ever found.
  • Don't bother downloading. Requires signing in!

    By AstroPaul
    Another of these supposedly free apps that requires signing in via a 3rd party or developer site. What type of info is being transmitted? Why should one have to sign up to use a local OCR scanning app? It makes one worry that one's documents, personal, private, and business are being transmitted...
  • Overall GREaT
