What is included with Photomyne Basic with no paid plan?

Photomyne Basic is meant to give you a taste of the app’s scanning capabilities before deciding for yourself if it makes sense to upgrade. For this reason, some of its features will lock after basic use. An upgrade is recommended to unlock more features and remove all restrictions. You also have the option to watch ads.

How to upgrade?

Upgrading is essential (and highly recommended) if you have albums worth of paper photos to scan and save. Once you've reached the limit in the Basic app, your options will lock and you'll see an option to upgrade with the recommended plan. Tap billing option to see more available plans (monthly, yearly, or one-shot).

If you'd like to choose the upgrade plan that fits you best, go to your profile via the red icon in the top-right corner and click the big red "Upgrade" button.

How to choose a plan?

Once you’ve decided to upgrade to an account, you must choose between either a recurring or one-time payment plan. A recurring plan (monthly or yearly) is best if you have a short term project or don’t want to commit for the long-term. Conversely, choose the one-time plan (with a single up-front payment) if you have many photos, and want the long term backup, etc.

Please note: plan prices may vary depending on limited-time promotions, time of year, location, and more.

Billing & managing an account

If you purchased either the monthly or yearly plan, your payment and plan are automatically renewed via the App Store / Google Play at the end of each billing period. You can cancel at any time in the store’s subscription management area.

If you purchased the one-time plan, it won't be auto-renewed and it won't appear in the AppStore / Google Play subscription list.

What happens when you purchase the One-Time plan while having an existing recurring subscription?

If you already have an existing recurring plan and you decide to switch to the One-Time plan, the One-Time plan will begin only once your existing monthly or yearly subscription plan is finished. It’s important that as soon as you purchase the One-Time plan, you cancel the next billing of your existing recurring subscription to avoid double billing.

On iOS, go to the App Store on your device and tap the Profile icon to select the Subscriptions option. On Android, go to your Google Play account and tap My subscriptions. Follow the instructions to cancel your existing recurring subscription.

Once you cancel the next billing of your existing subscription plan, your One-Time plan will become active as soon as it expires.

Safe & secure payments

All account subscription purchases in the app go through (and are billed by) the App Store or Google Play, using your credit card details associated with your account in those stores.

Using the Photo Scanner Plus app?

You’ll get the full scanner's utility on a single device. Additional cloud-supporting features are available through an account (as an additional optional upgrade).
