Comments and Reviews from users:

Brandon Cole: “The more people use this app the more it Artificially Becomes more Intelligent learing to become close to 100% correct on lens pictures of finding out whatever you're taking a picture of. It would be so much better if it had a 3D Scan tool to scan the complete item and users data would add to the library of every users picture and it could only be more accurate. The last few years of having it, I'ts been a life saver for eBay, Saved me lots of time trying to look up and study sells and buys etc” – 5/5 in Play Store

Bridgett M: “It doesn't give any informational information anymore. It only shows similiar/not so similar items you can buy. Example, I was trying to find out what a switch on a car was for, and it showed random switches I could buy from ebay and auto parts store. They weren't even the same switch. It's been like with the last dozen searches I've done.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Cons May require an internet connection for some features, limited advanced editing options compared to desktop software, occasional crashes reported by users.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Slowly trying to force you to pay for the upgrade. I swear every time I use this app a feature has been taken away from the free version and put in the premium. Especially the editing features for scanned documents. Like if your document has any kind of watermark or stain on it none of the features they now have in the free version will clear it up. Or if it does you can barely read the text. They legitimately took all the good and even decent edit settings away from the free version.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Ashley Kelahlyah: “Fantastic! This app has been a life saver when I've had documents that needed to be scanned practically on the go. The ability to bundle into a batch or make a single scan was extremely beneficial as well. However the ability to format the documents with crop and lighting really seals the deal and it look even better than normal printer scanned documents. Best of all you can either just take a picture of what you need scanned or you can add it from wherever it is stored in your phone.” – 5/5 in Play Store

I just open the app, add document via camera (or camera roll) and it has a manual or automatic mode which is my very favorite part. it detects the borders of your document and scans it clear and perfect for you, then you can crop, edit, sign, whatever you need. Then I can save it, send it, upload it, email, print it WHATEVER YOU NEED as BOTH a .jpeg OR a PDF OR both!!! FOR FREE.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Ethan Jones: “Great Free scanner. Let's you combine many pictures into one scan. Most of my teachers prefer one pdf. It has really nice processing of images so if you set frame your scans it will do the rest. Make sure that the paper is in a neat stack and just do front and back. It takes what would take 20 to 30 minutes of scanning with my printer to a scan that can take less than 5 minutes.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “This is a very good app. I use it frequemtly. The free version allows you to scan a limited amount of documents. If you want to scan more you must delete from the app the first scans after you sent them. An update I would like to see it that it allow repositioning of pages scanned within the document. Example-- the ability to move page 7 to page 2.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Samuel Magnan: “Has worked great until now. But now all I get when I try to take/upload a picture is the "special offer / upgrade to premium" window, making the app basically unusable (unless you pay that is). I would have likely bought the app if it was a flat price and not a subscription system. I get that it is getting updates, but for me they do not justify a subscription model. Not planning to pay monthly / yearly for something I will use less than 4 times a year.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Pros Easy to use, accurate measurements, versatile
Cons May not be as accurate as a physical tape measure or ruler, requires a clear line of sight to the object being measured, may not work well in low-light conditions.

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “Probably one of the best of these on Android, but could use some polish. Sometimes doesn't get a good measure of the floor and the whole room ends up tilted, no way to fix other than starting anew. Measured points tend to drift a few inches. Rotating the screen resets all progress. Some help areas aren't localized, such as the floor scanning [?] button that leads to a slideshow written in Russian. Would be nice to be able to use the device's flashlight to more easily pick out dark corners.” – 4/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Decent for a free tool and simple measurements. I'd be disappointed if I paid for it. The measuring interface is clunky. It'd be better if you could manually select the measuring point while in the camera view instead of having to manuever the center of the camera view. The "reports" are also in need of some work, as the formatting and options are limited and I didn't find them helpful.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

A Google user: “So close to being the perfect replacement for my old Chinese scanner app! Unfortunately, the "Magic mode" is just too obnoxious. Give me control of the shutter, and do the edge detection on the resulting static image, and we'll both be happy! I can interrupt the magic by tapping the shutter button, but then it doesn't even attempt an automatic crop. The help docs refer to a button in the top right to switch back to manual mode, but that must have been removed in version 5.” – 2/5 in Play Store

A Google user: “Update: the guy reached out to me the 4.99 allows you to upload to Dropbox or Google drive the could is a subscription at 20 something a month! You have to turn on the ability to use Dropbox. So that's what I did appreciate the guy reaching out it's a good app but I'm not going to pay for ANOTHER cloud. Don't pay... Can't remember you did! I paid for an upgrade and it never seems to find my email address. That's not good!” – 3/5 in Play Store

Jason Kuehl: “The inbuilt cloud slicer is pretty good, and there is a ton of stl files available through the community (not as many as on other sites, but give it time!) In a prior version of the app, my OctoPrint setup would not connect to the app, but that issue has been resolved with a recent update. This app has come a long way since earlier versions, and is always evolving!” – 5/5 in Play Store

Jeff Cheatham: “The creality app is good, in fact, I almost prefer printing out of it than not. That being said, it's a bit clunky and disorganized. It would be nice if they reorganized it to put the printables into almost a "store" sort of setup rather than just having them on the landing page. That and organizing the prints a bit better. Oh, and explaining the print functions would be nice too. Sure, you can figure it out, but a bit of direction is always nice.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Comments and Reviews from users:

Kseniya Forte: “Crashes nonstop. I can't speak to whether or not it can actually create the 3d captures well because it hasn't stopped crashing from the moment I uploaded my first image set for processing. It crashes as soon as I open the app and exit the camera feature. Aggravating to say the least. I'm going back to my regular photogrammetry software on my computer. Thanks.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Carl Olsen: “It looks like a good app but requires subscriptions to actually save your result as 3d. I would not mind pay as you go, or buying the app outright, but I can get better results with Meshlab for free and no subscriptions. (In my case, I would rarely use the app, so a subscription is overkill.) It was also really annoying to find this out after spending 20 minutes carefully taking photos. Otherwise, for a relatively easy scan, the results looked pretty good in the in app viewer.” – 3/5 in Play Store

James Sean: “Not too bad compared to other 3D hand-held devices..it does take a steady hand and patience. The only technical issue I see is the app tends to hang on my Galaxy 21+ from time to time. My wishlist would only include being able to turn off the proximity sensor and allow the scan with a rotation table. Walking around a square table trying to maintain a 360 Walking diameter can prove challenging.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Derek Crimmel: “Well, I'm trying the trial mode. I took a bunch of photos and now have to wait over a FULL DAY to see the scan? 😂. I understand it's a free trial, but Holy cow, you're gonna make me wait 30 hours to see scan quality? I want to buy something to do some work today. I guess I'll look elsewhere. Edited to add that the scan processed a lot faster than estimated, but the 3D model didn't look that great. I took all the requested photos and the model was missing huge chunks. It was just a basic cup.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Tim's Digital Darkroom: “When it works, it's great! . . HOWEVER, I've had HUGE issues with my Google Pixel 3xl. App won't even load sometimes and or crashes. I think using phone in airplane mode helps....disappointed that the Samsung s10e does NOT work with app despite covering (easily) at least 3 of the 4 "parameters".....must not be "google certified" whatever that means.... . . ***EDIT*** and changed stars to reflect a resolution of sorts. . Yes, it seems in my case, so long as I am in airplane mode the app does not fail. Had 4-5 disconnects from the camera but that's an easy fix (1 was bc I walked too far away, the other 4 not sure). . . Also, DO NOT GET ME STARTED on master bathroom mirrors!” – 4/5 in Play Store

Nolan Casey: “The Kiri engine is an app that I have been looking for for a long time. As someone who is terrible at 3d modeling, this is an incredibly useful tool. Every app I've seen like this has gone out of business, but this one looks like it might last. The free tier is great for trying out what the app has to offer, and the paid tier has good pricing. There are a few issues, but they have more to do with technical limitations than anything else, like producing bad results on reflective materials.” – 5/5 in Play Store

Jennifer Copedo: “Excellent app for 3D scanning matted objects. Had some excellent results with a very quick processing time. It doesn't handle any kind of reflective surface well, which does limit its uses, but I foresee this becoming less and less of an issue. a greater photo limit will also help with creating more detailed models but 200 is still plenty for a good model.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Con: I was unable to upload images through Wifi and had to use my cell data. I believe my ISP notices the quick upload speeds and throttles my Upload connection.

Comments and Reviews from users:

Logan: “This app has some real promise, once a little more structure is added to it. For example, I wish it had the ability to take video and extract the necessary data from that. It could also do better at not rejecting so many images in the scan, but I'm sure that will come with improvements to the algorithm. Overall, I can't wait to see where this goes.” – 4/5 in Play Store

Khem Iglesis Barrull (khem_ib): “The best photogrammetry app out there is finally available for Android! Having just done a couple of scans, I'm really impressed by its capabilities; considering the app is completely free unlike PolyCam which I've been using for a while now...

nikora ball: “I downloaded and did a quick scan around my yard then tired to upload for processing? Unfortunately the ability to use a 15 day free trial seemed to disappear after I created an account and the whole account/subscription process is messy. App looks promising so I'll reinstall and give it another shot in the future.” – 2/5 in Play Store

Martin Rieger: “Buggy, can't delete or disable out of focus pictures or revise poor outcomes. Outside scenes seem to be relative to the start point and not to GPS, not good if you want a level as reference for angles. Trialling to see if suitable for remote capture by inexperienced users for designing new parts. Not really possible because no editing of pictures and the inexperienced operator will make mistakes. Particularly with motion blur due to auto picture taking. Concept is good.” – 3/5 in Play Store

Ethan Andrew: “Like google street view but 100 time better. If any of the 3d renders come out funky, take a few takes and upload them all at once so the app can combine them into one, smoother photo. Very well made” – 5/5 in Play Store

Bachtiar Rahady: “Wow. This app is underrated. It actually works! Not only panorama but also photo sphere, and it generates 3D representation of your room. Using only your phone. How cool is that” – 5/5 in Play Store
