    • One of the few - perhaps even the only - open source scanning apps for Android. Gives comparable results to Camscanner. Needs OpenCV Manager to be installed, but that's a formality (the latter requires no permissions.)

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. Maybe my favorite app. Saves stuff in JPG, can export to PDF, email, dropbox, and more.

Free version limits to 10 shots per subcategory, which might be annoying if you're trying to keep things organized. Its really not a big deal for me. Tested on 2010 Dell Streak w/ 2.2 and iPhone 3gs.

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.
