    Doesn't clear up text nearly as well as cam scanner. Doesn't have nice folder/file management system (have to save immediately as an image, or to OneDrive). Feels like cam-scanner 0.5 in terms of functionality.

    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.)

    Unfortunately no filters like "real" scan apps; so this is basically the original photo
