PhotoScan by Google Photos app reviews

  • Really big waste of space on your phone 1/5

    By GBJones
    Have tried multiple times to scan pictures, following the dot with it sometimes working sometimes not working but mostly a big waste of time. Sad to see google putting out a piece of junk like this because I’m big fan of Google
  • Fantastic app 5/5

    By NicBen2006
    Scanning a box of my deceased fathers photos and the app is invaluable! A++
  • Great For Photo Archiving 5/5

    By Cantrben
    This is an amazing app! It lets you easily use your phones camera to “scan” physical photos. It auto detects the edges of the photo, works best if you put the photo on a contrasting surface (I.e. light surface for dark photo and dark surface for a light photo), so you don’t have to spend hours cropping the edges. You can then save the photos to your device or in the cloud. This is great for finally getting those old family photos online without having to mess with a printer/scanner and without paying someone else an arm and a leg!
  • Love it 5/5

    By VictorSashti
    I am eliminating paper at every stage and this apps make it so easy to scan.
  • Why all the 4 and 5 star reviews? 1/5

    By unvoyageur
    I don’t get it. Why so many positive reviews? I’ve used the app about 50 times now. In about 30 cases, it crashed before completing the scan. In another 10-15 cases, the four circles you are meant to line up on were inches away from the photo, with no overlap whatsoever on the photo itself. So far, I have been able to successfully scan only five photos. This app is trash.
  • Needs a caption option 5/5

    By Skinnizzle
    Great app. I do wish it had a caption option so you have a description of the photo. Or a truly interactive option that would record sound. We used this to scan old family photos and it either of the above options would’ve been great to have while elder relatives were telling us the story of the photos. But again, great app.
  • Worked well but now won't start 2/5

    By mozillalives
    The app worked really well the couple of times I used it. But the last time out crashed and now won't start even after I force quit the app.
  • Great app! Needs iPhone X update ... 5/5

    By nicolesy
    I really love this app. It’s perfect for quickly digitizing old photos and important image documents. I do wish that the design would be updated for the iPhone X, though. 😬
  • Cool feature that reduced glare 3/5

    By Habakkuk
    Easy to use but needs more explanation on how to properly use it.
  • Well done!!! 5/5

    By Agent EFC123
    Love using it! Easy and convenient!!
  • So far so good! 5/5

    By Joe@dr
    I just downloaded the app and started using it. My first impression is that it’s easy to use and the photo scans seem pretty good!
  • Excellent scanning 5/5

    By MadD0c
    What a wonderful scanning tool - it’s quick, it’s accurate and syncs to the cloud immediately
  • Love / Hate 1/5

    By GBF62
    Great app for one scan, then app crashes. Repeatedly.
  • New version started crashing a few months ago 1/5

    By bispymusic
    Google updated this app a few months ago so that it automatically syncs with your photo library. Now whenever I attempt to manually edit the corners of the captured image, the app crashes when updating the photo in my iOS photo library. After that the app is never useable again. It crashes every time I reopen it and this behavior survives through force-quitting the app and reboots. The only way to get it to work again is to uninstall and reinstall. Of course if you ever edit a photo manually again you’re back in the same boat. So frustrating and disappointing. I keep the app on my phone in hopes that someday Google will issue an update to fix it! This used to be one of the most useful apps I’ve ever had.
  • Has some glitches 3/5

    By sunnymw86
    When it works, which is 60-70% of the time, it’s ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. When it doesn’t, it’s annoying. Force closing OVER and over, freezing up, having your four dots be like five feet away from the actual picture...
  • Useless 1/5

    By Paul2349
    You can simply use your camera and the pictures will come out just as well or better than using the scanner.
  • Love it!!!! 5/5

    By KKM123456
    So easy to use. I have not printed the photos yet but I would imagine the quality would be similar to the quality of the original photo. I’m using to make photo albums for my kids when I only have 1 photo of 3 kids.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By JenAnalyst
    Great for capturing 35mm prints
  • No love for iPhone 5??? 1/5

    By Fluffy Leo
    This app used to support iPhone 5, but now it is gone. Other Google apps still support iPhone 5, this app is not. Why???
  • Deceptive 1/5

    By RainbowLady7777
    The photo scanner app looked awesome and seemed to work as intended. HOWEVER the photos cannot be uploaded via Dropbox. It took me a long time before I finally connected my phone to my PC via cord and copied photos that way. A lot of wasted time and effort. Still looking for a better app.
  • Great for scanning old pictures 5/5

    By Dmg144
    Great and easy. I wish I could tag pictures and also scan docs as pdf
  • Not a great first impression 1/5

    By bkh821
    I downloaded this app, tried to scan a photo in an album four times and the app shut down all four times.
  • App Keeps Crashing 1/5

    By Danger Kitten
    Worked for a little while but now it keeps crashing.
  • D 5/5

    By Dgcw
    Works great on all my old photos.
  • Useful App - Needs more AI 3/5

    By iMacMarq
    Love the idea of this app, and is useful in a pinch. Needs better automation in terms of image analysis and final adjustments of “scan”. I’m sure Google will have it all figured out with future updates.
  • Amazing app 5/5

    By 32daisies
    This app is terrific. I’ve been able to digitize hundreds of old family photos in just a day. Love it!
  • Scan photo file 1/5

    By LinGS$$$111
    It looks like I can only scan from paper or take one but can’t load a photo from file. I strongly believe it must have had this feature but I did not find it.
  • Old Pictures 5/5

    By Mynnime
    I’ve been taking pictures and putting them in albums from the time I was in grade school and decided I wanted to put them on Facebook for others to see!
  • Modern scanner 5/5

    By Onepunchzee
    It is a modern scanner indeed. I already tried this for photos and documents and it looks good...
  • Great but... 4/5

    By Sittingbored
    The photo always comes out upside down for me.
  • Great application for making digital photos of photos 4/5

    By FLAGert
    Very simple app for making digital photos of photographs. Five clicks and the corners are perfectly matched. Not great with photos with light backgrounds.
  • Love the app! 5/5

    By Kmartee
    I am very big into scanning photos, via phone and professional scanner. I very much enjoy the app. I came to write the review because I do thoroughly enjoy this app and I thank everyone at Google for what they are doing. My one request, however, is to ask that Google scan please remove their "Watermark" that they leave on the photos after scanning: "PhotoScan by Google Photos" Thanks! Happy scanning!
  • Best photo scanner 5/5

    By jbx49r
    I’ve never had a better photo scanner than this.
  • Gods When It Doesn’t Crash Constantly. 3/5

    By DJ Up Above
    This keeps crashing. Super annoying.
  • This the best mobile way to scan your old photos!! 5/5

    By Renda RL
    It is amazing!
  • So frustrated 4/5

    By Silly Mustang
    When I first got the app I was thrilled. Then as my phone system updated I could no longer use the app. It just crashes. I’ve deleted and reinstalled. I’ve done the phone restart. Still nothing and I lost several scanned but not saved pictures and some I had saved will no longer let me open them in photos. I’ve uploaded it to my iPad and it works fine. Urrg
  • Disappointed 1/5

    By 0831momo0303
    When I open the app it crashes... very disappointed.
  • I love it 5/5

    By Murlly
    I like it, it works better.
  • Great 5/5

    By captola
    This app is wonderful. I have struggled to scan old family pictures into my computer but this is so much simpler and actually improved the quality of old treasured photos.
  • Needs work... 2/5

    By RedIVFive
    This app is far from user friendly. The dots you are asked to hover over move all over the screen, making it unable to capture the photo. I love Google apps and products, so this one really disappoints me. Quality idea, poor execution. Work out the kinks and we got a deal.
  • Good start 4/5

    Good app. Convenient needs work for export and exposure control
  • Stops working 1/5

    By davis331010
    It was working very well but now it just goes black and closes the app when I try and get on it. Very disappointing. I have a lot of photos on here and a project with many more photos I need pictures of but now I can’t take any more. I’m hoping it’s just a glitch and an update can fix it.
  • Love this app 5/5

    By brencale
    There is no flash reflection and the pics actually come out brighter after the scan. I don’t have to mess with my complicated photo scanner anymore.
  • Most useful app I’ve ever down loaded 5/5

    By Fatboy912ga
    My family has thousands of photos from the last 100 years family pictures, trips and such this makes it so easy to organize and show them off. My grandfather leads tours to Vietnam and Korea for war vets and this app has allowed me to easily catalog and digitalize the thousands of photos he took on each trip. If this app wasn’t free I’d pay for it.
  • Crashes more often than works 1/5

    By Gribbly Snard
    When it works it does a good job, but now it frequently stops working before it is complete or else it crashes the app altogether.
  • Scanning Pics 5/5

    By jackrileystudio43
    This app is awesome!

  • Another great Google product 5/5

    By bhh54
    Working perfect for getting photos off an old photo album, precious memories
