I love that it is free! @holtwick just curious if this collects any data or if there is a revenue stream for this.

@dhcrain No data is collected. The idea is to offer a free tool for basic PDF and OCR features to promote my pro product Receipts which also includes these features and many more https://www.receipts-app.com
