Worse over time

While this app used to be good, it has done nothing but grow in frustration. Updates end up requiring owners to have to rebuy the app while other times it just won't reinstall. Sure, features are added and bugs fixed, but then things that had been part of the app become 'premium' features that require more payment. In the end, unless you keep buying features or rebuying the whole app you're left with something that will scan docs, but give you no way to use them. I have had it installed for some time and upon opening it after not needing it for a while I was prompted to update or I 'might need to repurchase' the app. Followed the update prompt, which failed to install an update and left me with an app that asks for money at every turn. Looking in the store, it says I own the app, but won't let me reinstall it. Updates should be handled better. Backup? Premium Email? Premium Cloud? Premium. At this point I just want some way to get a couple docs out so I can move to something else.

Best scan app

Best scan app for windows. Has served me for years.

Continuously locks up and more

I will scan 5 of 6 pages and it will lock up and a window pops up Oops! If your getting this more than once report it. Well when you try to report it by prompting yes, it fails to give an email address to send it to when the email service opens. It's like and endless loop on an automated phone service with no answers. I tried signing up online but it doesn't recognize Hotmail accounts. So I can't even register to tell you my issues. I read the posts of my issues, but there over 2 yrs old and I've already tried them from previous experiences. I've just changed from a Nokia 1520 to a Nokia 950 hoping the Win 10 would help this app, ....guess I was wrong.

Bad keypress for earlier review. I've used this app for sometime now to store receipts. I could even print them when needed for expense reports. But the pinnacle of usefulness is this: I must have taken 10 pictures with my Lumia phone and still couldn't read the model number on my drying machine. With just one pic using Handyscan, the problem was solved. I don't know how you clean up the picture, but it always seems to work. Receipts look good, numbers look good, and I get to choose which optimization looks best. Well worth the price. Great Job!!!

Ok, you can scan the document, but everytime you try to share, it says that some problem with internet connection happened! You can only save as pictures, that's all it allows you to do! Guys, you're asking money for this app, you have to make it work properly, c'mon!

Easy to use -- takes two or three tries to get the hang of it, then you're on your way. Lots of cool tools. 😁🏁🏆

I don't get all the great reviews. It doesn't have auto-crop, and it doesn't make scanned paper look white. No auto crop either. So basically it simply takes a photo, allowing you to apply a few basic manual corrections, and offers some basic storage/organizing options. That was the plus side. On the negative side, it's loaded with ads (ads shown during operation and on exit). At the time of this writing, the developer requires a monthly subscription to remove the ads. Honestly, it's not worth the while even as a free app.

Easy to use and very useful. I use it to scan receipts - one PDF file for every month. This then helps me at time of filing taxes and also for managing returns or warranty. I am very picky when it comes to paying for apps and this is one of the purchases I am very happy on value I received for the price I paid.

It would be awesome if one could flip back and forth between pages with a swipe as well as being able to re-select a different exposure. It would also be awesome to be able to text files without having to add them to your photos. Otherwise it is simple and easy with a fairly intuitive design.

I bought this app to scan in expense receipts a while back as the lite version was so good. Had little trouble until the last patch which was supposed to fix a random freeze issue when scanning. Never saw the issue before. The issue has been fixed now though, it's no longer a random issue, it now freezes EVERYTIME I scan. The app is more than useless as it's just taking up space on my phone. I've tried reinstalling but that only had the effect of losing all my previous scans in the process. Please fix or revert to the previous version
