Crashes on startup with Nexus 5

Works almost as advertised Some force close issues, but usually works. A bit cumbersome since taking a photo of an entire spread only gives you a link to one half of it. Should have an option to save the page locally as a pdf file. Now I have to first email the search results to myself, open the link in a browser, and save the opened image from there, and possibly archive it to Drive. What a workflow.

Meta data collection Just a proxy for "contests" that are really "give us all your marketing data" forms

Jeb Eldridge

Great idea Not enough support to back up the project.

Lari Perasto

Does not work Force closes every single time when trying to open an article. Good idea, but useless application.

Max Wirz

Keeps crashing... And how the heck can I delete docs?? Great potential, not yet realized I am afraid

Great, just lacks auto backup option I love the app to quickly scan recepies. I know one can then email them or SMS etc. But would be more user friendly if there comes also an auto back up to Google Drive and other cloud options. This way one does not loose all when switching to a different phone.

Armin R. Kummer

Not useful Bad page recognition, website doesn't load. Too slow. After one attempt uninstalled.
