    Anyone using this? Is it worth the money (ie - can people actually read your documents etc)...this is one of those that is hard to judge from comments because it's a free trial essentially.

    I suppose it depends. I too looked into this but decided to use Scan2Pdf instead for numerous reasons. The downside of ScanR is the pricing structure. Its actually a subscription service. I emailed their support and received this response on the 10th of Jan:

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting scanR!

    When you finish using 1000 pages of scans and 250 pages of faxes and want to scan/fax more, you have a choice to purchase one of these pricing options available on our mobile site at Scan, copy and fax.
    100 scans: $4.99 (USD)--100 scanned pages (no fax).
    40 scans / 10 fax: $4.99 (USD)--40 scanned pages and 10 delivered fax pages.
    100 scans / 25 fax: $9.99 (USD)--100 scanned pages and 25 delivered fax pages.
    400 scans: $9.99 (USD)--400 scanned pages (no fax).
    400 scans / 100 fax: $19.99 (USD)--400 scanned pages and 100 delivered fax pages.

    The 1000 pages and 250 faxes included in the application purchase are for the lifetime of the application. You can use them anytime you want.

    When a fax fails, you will receive an error message from scanR, and it will not be counted for the used fax pages.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Regards,

    Misa

    Now since then i went back to their site and only shows 2 subscription models than i see unlimited monthly scans for 4.99 or annually for 29.99. Now im assuming they are implying unlimited faxing too.

    The great part is that your scans are uploaded to their site so you can see them their as well. Also the faxing is world wide (lol not that i would do any of that). So if you do lot of faxes it might be to your advantage.

    I didnt care that you had to create an account and at the time when i originally was looking into the app it costed $9.99 and didnt tell you its a subscription till AFTER you bought the app and registered with then. I felt it was a little deceptive.

    For me I was looking for something that could create pdfs which Scan2Pdf did a good job doing and i can use a free online faxing site to send them out as needed, since i rarely faxed.

    Oh to answer your question about clarity i found both to work well. It all depends on the quality of the picture. Though ScanR has OCR that works ok. Honestly didn't really use that too much.

    Hope that helped ;)

    I thought that with the way the Android market works you have a certain time frame to "return"/uninstall an application and get your money back if you are not satisfied.

    Not in this case really because it's a subscription service.

    i just did a couple scans and it works fine for me. Basically its as good as your cam. I wish there was a way to convert other file types to pdf though.
