April 10, 2011  |  By gonkulator

Very user friendly and intuitive. A very handy product

SLOW customer support. Most importantly, needs to work with Dropbox or otherwise allow multi-user access

"Terrible software."

April 07, 2011  |  By whiskeyperm75

 |  Version: Paperless 1.3

Pros

Neat icon.

Cons

Bare bones, missing so many utilities, crashes often and no way to properly organize by sub-categories with totals.

Summary

I have iPad apps more powerful than this for a fraction of the cost. AVOID.

"Awesome application, best of it's kind."

February 23, 2011  |  By donperreault

 |  Version: Paperless 1.3

Pros

I love that Paperless has 1000's of merchants it can match up your receipts with and accepts numerous document types. Very stable application, I spent several hours adding, editing, deleting and scanning documents without one crash.

Cons

I honestly haven't found any cons yet.

Summary

I've been using iDocument for several months. It helped keep my documents in order but did not support many document types, it also crashed frequently when scanning. I have Cf and had a lung transplant on 12/12/09 and desperately needed something to keep my documents organized where I could find them easily without searching through drawers of medical bills, medical history and lastly my collection notices from the hospital.

Yesterday, I received an email from Mariner Software announcing the new version of Paperless 2.0. I never new Paperless existed, even though I am on their mailing list. I downloaded Paperless to give it a try. I was very surprised at how many document types it supported, as a matter of fact it accepted every document I threw at it. It even supports Safari webarchives, PDF and HTML from directly within Safari. For me this is very handy when viewing credit card statements and my online banking.

With Paperless 2.0 you can track any data with the ability to customize the fields. Hundreds of merchants are included to save time when adding receipts because Paperless is already set up for the included merchants.

I spent all afternoon transferring my documents from iDocument to Paperless 2.0, adding, deleting, editing and scanning. Not once did Paperless crash, document was crashing about every other scan. I am amazed at how it takes each document an analyzes the content using text recognition and fills in the fields with the amount due and the date due. You can scan a multi-page bill/document and combine it into one document.

For organizing you can add tags, categories and even sub-categories for easy finding. Paperless 2.0 also supports collections and smart folders that allow you to mix and match your criteria for easy finding of your documents.

After using iDocument I really am amazed at the detail and features found in Paperless 2. I did not use Paperless 1 but for me Paperless 2.0 is a no brainer. And for those using version 1.0, I think $25.00 is a steal for Paperless 2.0. I hate to criticize iDocument like I just have but for the same price Paperless 2.0 is so far ahead of iDocument that it would be foolish not to go with Paperless 2.0 and with a 30 day money back guarantee how can you go wrong?

I am giving it 5 stars right down the line because I can't find a single feature I need that it doesn't have and after iDocument crashing so much, it is a pleasure to work with an application that doesn't crash.

BTW: I am not affiliated with Mariner Software in any way. When I love an application I like to spread the word to other Mac enthusiasts like myself. Give iBank 4.0 a try, it is the best financial application for the Mac.

"Document storage app. Scan, store, organize and search."

September 27, 2010  |  By r_vaessen

 |  Version: Paperless 1.3

Pros

I like the 'Cover Flow' display, the QuickLook integration, and the organizational capabilities.

Cons

I cannot get this application to quit without implicitly going to the app and selecting quit from the file menu. Tested numerous quit methods (over ten), and for some reason Paperless will only quit from file quit or CTRL-Q.

Summary

Until they fix this issue (not quitting on log-out, restart, shutdown), I will not pay for any additional updates/upgrades. Troubleshooting efforts seem limited to case-by-case 'software conflict' basis, instead of coding a solution that leverages the 'quit' options that 'do' work. Marinersoftware thinks that this is a TWAIN/Scanner issue, but they're treating it like an individual user issue.

"Crashed right out of the gate"

September 14, 2010  |  By k1d3q9n0

 |  Version: Paperless 1.3

Pros

Paperless installed fine, right up to the software license agreement...

Cons

Paperless *crashed* as soon as I agreed to the software license. I got the crash dump message the instant I clicked agree.

Summary

I need reliable functioning OCR software (better than Adobe Acrobat 9). Paperless didn't fill that need for me!

"Bare Bones Scan and Organize Application"

August 25, 2010  |  By Jeff Weber

 |  Version: Paperless 1.3

Pros

Handy for scanning all your receipts and paper documents and putting them into a database for easy searching.

Cons

Has some logistical issues with the user interface. Separate windows for receipts and for all other documents is too arbitrary and limiting. There is no way to edit smart collections once they have been created.

Summary

Needs a redesigned user interface. Price is too steep for the minimal functionality provided.

What's new in version 1.3
  • Improved Spotlight indexing: Made a number of changes to improve spotlight indexing of Paperless library contents so items inside Paperless libraries can be found via spotlight searches. Please note that PDFs inside Paperless libraries still need to be scanned or created with OCR software in order to be searchable by content. These types of PDF's are known as Image + text PDF's
  • Fixed Page Number and Scale toolbar buttons: Fixed crashes that would occur using the page and scale buttons in the preview window
  • Changed the default toolbar in the preview window: The preview window's default toolbar now contains Rotate Left and Rotate right buttons
  • Fixed a problem where scans might not be directed to Paperless from a ScanSnap
  • Fixed a problem that would cause a receipt or document to fail to import correctly if scanned by pressing the scan button on a Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner when Paperless is not launched
  • Disabled the Library Info window while item details are being entered into a library: The Library window would previously display blank when a scan was in progress.
  • Updated Help to include new version info
  • Updated the user guide to reflect recent changes
