    "OCR technology sure has come a long way. I was doubtful that my phone could do that great of a job doing OCR but low and behold, this app actually does give a usable OCR'd version of documents. Just don't expect it to be useful for a large batch of paperwork."

    "There isn't a whole lot to say about this app...it doesn't exactly what it says it does in a quick easy manner. It doesn't really excel in any category but...I'm not sure it could anyway."
