App Reviews

  • Easy to use and amazing quality!

    By Bran1285
    I have tons of photos in scrapbooks that I wanted in digital form and this app has made it ridiculously easy. Even better the quality of the photos is incredible.
  • Keeps crashing!

    By My Cavaliers
    This app came highly recommended but while using it to catalog family photos it keeps crashing. Maybe there’s a problem tonight but still is very frustrating!!!!
  • Low resolution

    By HansOCD
    Very low resolution. Turbo Scan works much better. Trust me, I'm a Googler and I'm honestly recommending you not use this app. Not sure how it got so many good ratings.
  • Works as advertised

    By NightOwl5311
    This app is amazing. It works wonders right out of the box. Removing - or at least limiting - glare is great
  • Quality

    By Agnesa Struk
    This is amazing, I thought it would not be good but it is good in quality and it is amazing how beautiful it turns out.
  • Easy Breezy

    I have been struggling to find a way to scan old photos to create a slide show for a celebration of life. Love this feee app, easy to use and eliminates glare. Also appreciate the cropping feature. Thank you Google Photos!

    Love it but kicks me out and have to restart
  • Great

    By Jesol71
    I was able to recover all my old pictures from before the digital era.
  • Good app but nowhere near a real scanner

    By climber20
    This is a very nice app, but the reviews comparing it to a real scanner are ridiculous. I’ve scanned tens of thousands of prints and various sized negatives over the years and the quality isn’t in the same ballpark as even a consumer level flatbed scanner. Works very well, and for photos where quality isn’t critical, I’d say go for it. But keep your expectations realistic.
  • Great until it crashed.

    By Kim Andelin
    Worked pretty well until it kept crashing every time I tried to open the app again on my iPhone X. Uninstalled :(
