Top Pcmac Reviews

  • GREAT for school!

    By Laraspa (Pcmac user)

    I absolutely LOVE using this app for school. I get a lot of handouts for projects that I have a tough time keeping track of and this app helps me 1: organize my papers, 2: keep from losing them, and 3: access them super easily. I love that I am able to see my assignments on the go, as I cannot always bring my giant folder around with me. Even with the folder, it can be such a pain to try and find each individual assignment. this app has helped so much with both of those problems. Now I am able to see my organized files anywhere if I have my phone on me. Even if I lose an assignment, I will have a scanned copy that I can look at, so I will never lose my important documents. 100% would recommend to other students. If you have problems with organizing files or wish you didn’t have to carry around so many papers, this is definitely the app for you. So easy to use, great user interface. Love it!
  • Cam Scanner best way to share printer quality documents

You are going to Love it!
  • Simply Stellar! Perfect for folks on the go!

    By Oh sagacious (Pcmac user)

    It’s a Stellar app that is really simple to use - hence my title. And It’s true. Im a salesperson in a constant sprint. The formula for success in sales is pretty straightforward: More time in front of prospects equals more lettuce in the old wallet. I only get paid to do three things really: Prospect, see people and close. If I’m “busy” resubmitting an app because its illegible, or digging through files to find an application, etc., then that’s less time engaged in key activities! And that’s less money in my pocket!... Cam scanner literally makes scanning, saving, editing, and organizing and after thought! What would have taken me 15-30 minutes before, is done now in less than 5! And it’s FREE! I couldn’t operate without it...and wouldn’t want to. M Thanks a million Cam Scanner!!
  • 👍🏻👍🏻

    By Karararaa (Pcmac user)

    This really is a great app, I originally downloaded it to use for school, but I ended up using it outside of class as well. It keeps me organized and reeaaaally comes in handy if you’re the person that’s always needing to email hard copy documents to others (especially on the go). I also use it to keep important documents organized and with me at all times (on my phone, as pdf files). I’m not very good tech-wise, and complicated apps end up getting deleted after one confusing use. This app is laid out nicely and is simple enough to figure out and actually use without feeling overwhelmed at all. Wasn’t expecting much from a free app, but has thoroughly exceeded my expectations and gone above and beyond anything else I have tried.
