"Contains malware"

August 08, 2013  |  By jochem99

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

the actual scanner works great

Cons

Installs dj mixi search bar and webcake and a bunch of other crap. Difficult to remove. Also causes adobe flash plugin to crash.

Summary

Don't install!! It's not worth it.

"Tried others but this just worked!"

July 12, 2013  |  By neuromandw

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

Downloaded, installed on Windows 8 x64 with Brother DCP-7065DN over ethernet, scanned multiple pages to PDF correcting one rotated page in the middle...viola! Done within a minute.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

Really happy with it. Will use again throughout 30 day trial and see how it goes, but I love software that just works and solves problems as they should: taking the user and workflow into account.

"Not as good as it used to be"

January 31, 2013  |  By TBurk4772

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

Originally did what it should

Cons

Multiple page scans from an auto-feeder hang the application - no response from the developer.

Summary

Used for a couple of years and and used it all the time, but now it fails on almost every scan. Tried re-installing, no joy - no response from the developer. Have now switched to Fast Scan to PDF - cheaper and works.

"Reliable with great compression"

December 14, 2012  |  By ajstockman

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

Easy to use interface, can use my multi-function printer's autofeed tray, excellent compression (file size), can edit scan settings

Cons

None. Love this software.

Summary

This software has paid for itself - many times when I need to scan docs it is to transmit a signed copy of a document (flexible spending account claim forms, docs for lawyers, etc)via email. I use this software about 3x/month, and it was more when I was selling, then buying, a house. A superior time & money saver.

Updated on Dec 14, 2012

Update: Used this software from version 2.37 to current version updated in July 2012. I run this on a moderately equipped PC with Win7 Home Premium and use an all-in-one print/scan/fax/copy device with it - a Dell 962.

"Simple and effective"

October 07, 2012  |  By wamaruna

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

I finally figured out how to make my old Canon N650U flatbed scanner work on my wife's Vista machine (even though Canon said it did not support Vista with that scanner.) But I needed an app to scan directly to PDF since the old Canon software left much to be desired. This software is easy to use, will scan multiple pages into a single PDF file if desired, and connects without issue to the scanner's TWAIN driver.

Cons

Documentation, while existing, leaves something to be desired. It was not intuitively clear how to scan multiple pages into a single file (you just don't press the 'Save PDF' button until all pages are scanned in.) Also, at $30, the software is pricey - but it does work. One other thing to be aware of: after you pay your money to get the license number, you have to download and install another version of the software, since you can't just plug the license number into the trial version.

Summary

This was the solution I was looking for. If it had been $10 cheaper, I'd have been happier. Oh well, no one made me buy it. Problem-free, so far, on this 32-bit Vista machine.

"Great for the Price"

September 18, 2012  |  By pkpjpm

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

Simple to use and install, works with a fairly old network scanner. Results compare with Acrobat in terms of legibility.

Cons

Image compression not as good as Acrobat, no OCR. For example, 846KB document w/OCR in Acrobat comes in a just over 1MB w/no OCR.

Summary

This won't take the place of Acrobat if you're serious about document scanning, but if you just need a simple solution to replace a fax machine, it's more than adequate, simple, and priced very well.

"Great scanning software"

August 17, 2012  |  By jasonpk2

 |  Version: Softi Scan to PDF 2.50

Pros

Simple to use as it basically just has a Scan and a Save button.
I scanned an 18 page document that was HUGE using the HP software but using Softy was under 1MB! Now I can email scans with ease.

Cons

Its not free :(

Summary

Good compression and easy to use.
