Every so often I need to fax documents, but because I don't have ready access to a fax machine, this app has saved me multiple times. It's convenient and extremely easy to use.

Useless  crz6662  1 star

Can’t even transfer a pdf to read without upgrading to the $7.99 plus version. Another bait... Also nice that you put all the good reviews at the top of an 849 review list. I can't even view the reply to my review unless I scroll through a few hundred other reviews. If they were listed by date it would be easy to find, but then you wouldn't look so good. Would you?
