    Carrie Smith Published date: July 10, 2017

    I love the app, do not mind the advertisement, but I'm also not going to purchase a $5.00 app that is used only a couple times a month.. I don't need you to store my documents in a cloud, my device storage is suffient. I used it for a year or 2 without it trying to force me into purchasing the app. Now after reinstalling on my new phone, after about 4 pages scanned it wants me to purchase the app. Not going to happen.

    So easy to use I scanned several documents needed for work using this amazing app, saved them in Google Drive and printed them out, all in a couple of minutes. I couldn't recommend this app enough! Five enthusiastic stars 😊 And yes, it does cost $4.99 which is fine with me. Not every app can be free! Get over it. Full Review

    This was a 5 star program until after scanning 4 pieces of paper then later 1 jpg already on phone the app is locked into buy the pro version splash screen. I don't mind the ads but not paying $5 for a rarely used program. I'll try and find something else Full Review

    This application takes a JPG file and stores it to your local phone. Then it takes the JPG and puts it directly into their Cloud. They have access to everything you scan. It's ok as long as you know that going in, but I did not see that mentioned anywhere in the description. I do not know ow what their retention policy is or the policy to use the data they have collected. You have to download the PDF from this servers to have access the file afterwards, this is done in the application. Full Review

    I was pretty mad when they said it was free and then made me pay after a short trial... but after looking for a replacement app, this one was just the best so I had to concede and pay. Pretty worth if you need a pdfscanner. This one has a lot of very convenient features. Full Review

    So great Ed: just interrupted my workflow to come here and say I upgraded to pro just to throw some love and money at the developers. I use A.LOT. of apps and this one is beautiful in its simplicity and AWESOME functionality. It JUST WORKS which is so rare these days. Love love love, never change. 💛 Full Review

    My husband showed this phone version of this app and it's really great. You simply snap a pic of the document that you need to send and volia! You've got it all nice and neatly in a pdf file, ready to be sent to my wifi enabled printer, printed (if necessary), then emailed to the intended recipient - neatly arriving as an attachment with your email. I have not triedthis version particular version yet (for tablets),but I'm hoping it works just as well as the original version that was developed for smartphones, which is a brilliant, user friendly, free app. Because when you think about it, not many of us have landline telephones in our hone amymore, let alone a dedicated faxline. This app is perfect for those of us who only need to fax something 5 to 6 times year, if that. Full Review

    This was a 5 star app. I used it a lot when I was on the go to upload receipts and things to my Dropbox for work. I upgrade my phone and now it costs 5 dollars to use the app. I have been telling co-workers for the past year to use this app but I guess that doesn't pay their bills. There's dozens of other free phone scanner apps out there. I guess i will be removing it and moving on. Full Review

    Update : I am still so very impressed with this app. It takes very clear pictures, it's cuts the pictures very well, and it can easily create PDFs from multiple pictures. I love it. ----------- This thing is just awesome. It has saved me a ton of visits to the library to scan documents and works fast and smoothly. And no annoying ads. Love it!! Full Review

    I honestly used to love this app from finishing school projects to filing taxes. Now, as I'm trying to do the latter, it has failed me. I can't get anything done without paying for the pro version. This used to be such a great mobile scanning app that I've been using for years. Pretty disappointed. Full Review

    My wife and I are very moble right now and our home office scanner is currently in storage while we are transitioning to our new home. Our loan officer needed paperwork uploaded in PDF and had no scanner. This application has come through for us. User friendly and fast! 👌🏾 Full Review

    Update: I have now updated my rating back to 5 stars. Below you can read the issue i was having and after writing it I wrote Appxy an email describing my problem. Within 2 days they responded back and gave me a promotional code to use to get the pro version reinstated on my phone. Well it worked and all is forgiven. Kudos to Appxy on a great app and great customer service. Previously: I've paid for the pro version but now I am being asked to pay again. This review will be 5 stars once my pro status returns to me. Meanwhile I will be using Samsungs optical reader to do just about the same thing, if not more. It seems to do a decent job for free.

    App now only lets you scan a few pages (like 4 or 5), then asks you to pay. This didn't use to happen, and just plain not cool. So most positive ratings here are probably based on the old version. My previous rating: 5 stars Corrected: 1 star Full Review

    I have installed the paid app on my mobile and started using. Image, scanning, storing is excellent. But, when I mailed it to my mail, it takes hours to receive at my mail end. When I want to use the scanned document, I used to. Connect it to my lap top, but I could not see in the tinyscan folder. I want a solution to see the scanned documents, when connected to lap top. Pl be good enough to resolve the issue. Full Review

    Does what it says it will do. Works great. I have to scan a lot of stuff for work and often times my scanner is broken so I use this one. It creates professional scans (cropping out background stuff) & saves as a PDF and allows me to send via email direct from the app. Awesome! Full Review

    I would rate it 5 but I don't understand why I had to buy this app again after I upgraded my phone. I have always used the same email to download and now it asked me to pay to be able to use all the features. The app is great but why I had to pay again? Am I missing something? Full Review

    The app has suddenly stopped working. I recently tried to open it and it keeps telling me the app crashed and cannot be opened so I uninstalled and reinstalled yet it is still not working. Update: uninstalling because you didn't reach out to help and I'm still having the same problem Full Review

    Just downloaded and did a quick test run. So it's still new... But, Picture quality is on point (photo option works best for carbon copy paper colors), easy to use, convenient, will update if there's any issues. So far, Tiny Scanner is looking pretty good! Full Review

    Published date: January 11, 2018

    You get three scans then app locks up until you pay. I have no problem paying for an app, but the dev. has failed to mention this. Was with a client and tried to make an important 4th scan. This is how I found out you can only make three scans. Very embarrassing! Uninstalled. S7/7.0 Full Review

    Bloody awesome! I have to scan and email multiple timesheets everyday and cbf going into the office to login into the computer to scan the paperwork. Thanks to this simple app I can just take a few quick snaps which convert to PDF and email them from my phone while sitting in the car. I also upgraded to pro after using it for a few months.. It only cost me $6.. I don't know why people complain about the price. Appreciate a good app when you see one you tighta$$ lol.. Thanks to those at appxy for the great app! Full Review

    maurice ibgui Published date: February 5, 2018

    The worst app I have ever encountered. It keeps changing photos explicitly requested in color to black and white on it's own and there is no way of changing it so you have to take the photo again and again until it finally works... And it keeps malfunctioning and shutting down during scanning. Full Review

    I'm always fighting to get my timesheet scanned in for work because I travel a lot. As many times as I've sent poor screenshots with promises to scan or fax when I was somewhere it was available, it is amazing how it turned out and the time keeper at the office will truly be grateful. I know I am. Full Review

    Henry S Published date: July 26, 2017

    The app is great but it crashes when you try to add a page to an existing PDF that has been open in the backgriund. Steps to reproduce: 1. Create or open a PDF 2. Scan a page into that PDF. 3. Go to your home acreen. 4. Open a couple of apps 5. Turn off your acreen. 6. Launch Tiny Scanner. At this point the app should be exactly where you left off. 7. A new page. 8. You receive an error saying some unexpected happen and that the app is restarting. Full Review

    Does not produce useable pdf files. This is a waste of money. While it looks good when you create the files, they can't be opened on another device. Sorry to say I did not get that feedback before the refund time expired. Full Review

    Steph Worsfold Published date: May 31, 2017

    I really liked this app and have been using it for so long. I am pretty disappointed upon getting a new phone that so many features are now exclusive to the pro version. The price point seems a bit high, so I will unfortunately be looking elsewhere Full Review

    Mikka Passinissi Published date: October 13, 2017

    It's actually the best scanning app I've ever used. However, I paid for the full version and when I wiped my phone and reinstalled the app wants me to pay again. That should be tied to my Gmail account. I don't want to pay again. Full Review

    Angela Stone Published date: December 12, 2017

    Worked great at first but not after I had 3 files saved to the app. It then prompts you to buy the pro version no matter what you click on to continue to scan any further files. Stupid in my opinion to allow only 3 before purchase. Also stupid I think that nothing mentioned to had to purchase. I feel like I got blind-sided. Full Review

    This app pretty much only lets you email documents.. if you try to upload its a charge, to fax its a charge... im truing something else.. im top of that evertime i try to email i keep getting error messeges.. but when i was able to upload for free no issues, i think i get error messeges to make me pay for everything else Full Review

    I just loved how easy this scanner is to use versus using your cell phone. Scan, click export into an email your email at pops up, write your email and hit send and it's all done. I use talk to text and I was done without any instructions in five minutes the first time I've used it. Way cool app! Full Review

    Published date: September 15, 2017

    I have used this app happily for a few years. Sadly, like so many others, the latest version is rubbish. At every turn, i have been faced with a demand to pay for the once free action I wanted to use. I appreciate the need to make some money, but leave at least a few bits for people to get a decent feel for your app before they fork over their money. This app is now so limited as to be worthless. I don't mind paying for good apps, but you're charging way too much for a one trick pony. Off to find a better app at a reasonable price. Full Review

    Nicole Bickham Published date: January 10, 2018

    I was a little surprised to discover that very basic features required upgrading to the paid version, but hey, that's fair I guess. I was willing to pay the $5 for Google Drive integration. Unfortunately, the integration did not work for me at all, even though the app was easily able to connect with my Drive account. I waited and waited but the files never showed up. So I ended up doing the clunky workaround of emailing myself each file individually. Big disappointment. I have requested a refund and will update this review if I get a satisfactory response from the developer. Full Review

    This is really a help full app. It's like a scanner in your pocket. You can also use as a copier. Scan the docs and get it printed through any printer. I have been using it regularly. It always worked for me. Thumps up... Full Review

    Had this app on iphone then swapped to Samdung and expected to have to repurchase for different platgorm. Have just swapped from Samsung 6 edge+ to Samsung 8 and to use ANY of the options now I have to pay $5.99 again (originally purchased gor $6.99 I think). Not impressed and planning to delete to get one of the free apps that does everything. Gone from satisfied to not happy Jan! I use the spp almost daily. Full Review

    Bait and Switch! Don't waste your time downloading the free version. It's a "come-on" to make you buy the pro version since you can't do anything with the scans from the free version, can't t upload, can't share. Full Review

    Can't even share with messenger in the free version and somehow modifies the file so that once it's in Google drive you can't share it with messenger as you would normally be able to. Makes for an extremely convulted process Full Review
