Nowhere are you informed before purchasing the app for $3.99 that you must purchase credits to send with their lowest being $9.99. Each page cost $0.10 (USA-to-USA) which means the $9.99 package (250 credits) will only be 25 pages. It's incredibly cheaper to stop somewhere like FedEx to fax something... this app is attempting to cover the niche of someone who has to fax something IMMEDIATELY (think airport prices because they know you don't have an option otherwise.) That being said, the app worked. Scanned my pages without an issue, created a PDF and sent the fax.
When I purchased this app you simply purchased a block of credits in order to send a fax. I only occasionally send faxes so the thought of having to occasionally purchase some credits was acceptable. The app developers have to be able to make some money from their efforts. I just tried to send a fax and now you must enroll in a minimum of a one week subscription plan (that automatically renews unless cancelled 24 hours prior to expiration) in order to send a fax. If this new plan had been added as an option I would be ok with that but to now force this new money making scheme onto previous customers is unacceptable. I will find another app where I can pay as I go. Just want to make sure everyone knows what you are getting yourself into with this new required subscription service.
In addition to paying the $3.99 for the app, you have to pay a subscription to send faxes. This might be worth it, but the connectivity features with iScanner are not reliable. It took me several tries before iFax would recognize and import a pdf I created with iScanner. These products are sold as a bundle, so I figured they would work together seamlessly, but they do not. I also opted to have the app send me a confirmation that my fax was sent, but didn’t receive any confirmation. In an incredibly convoluted process, I ended up finding a screen where the document was marked as sent, but no confirmation it was received. I will now have to spend more time following up to make sure my fax was sent. I basically spent an hour and $8 to “maybe” send a fax.
Unless you’re sending faxes regularly then this is a complete ripoff. When you purchase the app for $3.99, it says nothing about the fact that in order to actually send a fax, the entire point of this app, you must then additionally purchase a credit package, the cheapest being $9.99! They would much better serve the customer to just charge up front for the what it costs to send a fax OR have an option for the occasional fax client to say, allow the $3.99 to cover up to 5 pages and after that purchase for $.10/ per page for maybe the next 10 - 15 before paying a whopping $9.99 fee on top of the $3.99. An absolute crime I was charged $14 to just fax 2 pages!!!!
The app itself work for me I was in a situation where I was out of town and needed to send faxes and pretty much made a bad situation better. My problem with them is last year I change my phone from my iPhone 6 to iPhone 7 and lost my credits and had to fight to get them back then last week I change from iPhone 7 to iPhone X and fighting again to get my credit back. They have nothing in place for you to reset your iTunes and get your credits when you switch to your new phone. Getting them via email is a serious joke so the fight goes to iTunes.
