  • I about had a software orgasm! This is the most beautiful software I have seen since about 1995. There are only like 3 buttons on a super clean interface, and all the buttons, intuitive, do what you want them to do. You hit scan, it scans - no 'please load TWAIN API driver blah blah'. No ads, no java crap, no bloatware, no 100 MB download, etc. It JUST WORKED! I am sure if I beat around on it I might find something I don't like about it, but when was the last time you saw something that would fit on a FLOPPY DISK do all this cool stuff??? I registered an account here just to rate this tool. PS: if you like Windows 10, you will not like this. It is too easy to use and it doesn't have an Aero interface.

  • Very useful software. You can scan a document into PDF and send it right now via email. No Photoshop-like job required.

  • Best scan software out there. OFFTOPIC: It still need some management in the tickets. There are tickers that are still open even if they are solved.

  • Amazing software! Uses any TWAIN scanner, saves pages visually in suspension so you can do things like rotate, reverse order of groups, change color depth, etc. and does OCR when chosen when saving, so scanning is very fast. I can scan a magazine beginning to end in about 20 minutes on a sheet feeding scanner, including the OCR.

  • A simple but effective tool to create PDF files from scanned documents. Its one of the first tools I install on a new computer. Its a must have application.
