Simple Scan Comments

Love this program

about Simple Scan Mar 2015

I just tried it for the first time to scan some tax documents. It worked perfectly, with no setup and no errors.

I can even see and rotate the image as it scans, stop when I have what I need, crop what I want, and save large groups of images at the same time with simple pic-1,pic-2,pic-3 naming conventions.

Couldn't ask for better for a quick scan.

When I got hold of a printer with scanning abilities I was really surprised how well done this little app is. Truly a 1-Click utility, praise the dev!
