The software needs to be re-writen by someone who knows what quality is about.

Summary: I tried to load the software from the manif. site onto a tablet with windows 8.1 5 attempts all were a failure. Used the cd to put it onto a laptop with windows 7 This didn't load without problems either, but I could thrash through the problems and install and got it installed in spite of the difficulties. The software display was low quality with many options to choose from.
Excerpt: I ordered this scanner in order to keep up with receipts of business purchases. So far, it works great. It is small and lightweight, plugs into my computer for easy access.I can easly take it with me where ever my laptop goes. It has a good quality scan, easy to use program. I like the price, much cheaper than other brands for the same job. .
Excerpt: I had to return this item because it couldn't be used without being plugged into the computer. This scanner was needed away from the office. The IRISCan Anywhere 3 Cordless Scanner charges on the computer & can be used out in the field. STAPLES & other retailers should note this in their descriptions.
Excerpt: This scanner really works well! I also like the software that comes with the scanner. You will have many format options so that you can save the document to. The scanner comes with a storage pouch too, which i thought that was very considerate of the company IRIScan. I have not scanned any colored document material as of yet, so don't know how match the coloring will be, if that is a concern for you.
Summary: I have a printer/scanner combo and being lazy wanted a sheet fed scanner for next years tax documents. I am retired and very computer challenged. Simple is best for me. Easily installed the program on my desktop computer running Windows 7 and it worked like a charm. Went to install it on my new laptop that runs Windows 8 and it was a complete disaster. Installed, uninstalled numerous times. Searched the internet for answers and contacted customer support.
Summary: can't get IRISCan to load on my new computer which does not have a CD drive - I've asked several times for help and all I get is a lengthy 20 step how to do it - that's fine if you're a computer wiz - very disappointed that no one called and walked me through steps or sought other ways to help me - I've got the product and it sits in the box -
