Terrific. Has replaced my actual scanner because its simpler, easier, and faster. It can't hope to compete with the detail a real scanner can provide for photographs and OCR applications, but when you just want to have a quick copy of your receipts or other documents, this is awesome.

According to the appstore website, the free version contains ads, the commercial version (Camscanner+) doesn't. It doesn't state any other differences between free and commercial.
