Ed: I like this app, to do this any other way would require 5-10 minutes per photo of cropping, editing, rotating, saving, transferring off your phone onto a desktop etc, in my case I just dont have the time and it wouldn’t get done.
The app takes a photo, aligns/rotates it and then crops and saves it in a few seconds. Great idea.
