We use the Tier 0 version of ScanTango for our Strobe XP100 scanners. ( I also have VueScan and a flatbed but use it just for thick material like books, otherwise why bother...) Even with this cheep second hand manual feed scanner ScanTango simply rocks! It's easy to set resolution presets, scan, rearrange the order, erase, crop and redact pages. The app is also a great tool for editing existing PDF docs using the same built-in features. My wife doesn't like cumbersome scanning apps but loves this one because it's a very uncomplicated and gets the job done fast without frustration.

What a joke for this price and no OCR. I'll stick with SnapScan.

VueScan's advanced features seem geared toward photographers and others for whom color fidelity is extremely important. (The histogram feature, for example.) ScanTango is for people whose top concern is scanning a lot of paper and quickly processing those scans. That's my category. However, while the features sound great, it's weird that there are no reviews in the Mac media, and I can't understand the beyond-premium price.

No OCR - For $99 I'd expect a lot more than this. Forget it.

I can't quite see what this program brings that isn't already there in the software bundled with Fujitsu's Mac versions of the Scansnap. Plus, it doesn't even do OCR.

At Amazon, a reviewer commenting on the Fujitsu S1500M writes, "Speaking as a usability engineer who has also worked in the Mac OS team at Apple, the software interface is remarkably disappointing, especially for a Mac OS app." To see the rest, put "/review/R39QE4BU19SIOV/" after amazon dot com—I'll just say that I agree. The Human Interface Guidelines exist for a reason! Besides that, I want to be able to reorder pages, delete pages, and drag-and-drop pages out (or in!), before saving multi-page scans. I want to be able to do manual deskewing. (ScanSnap tries, but I can do better.) I want thorough in-program automation and Apple-scriptability. In short, ScanTango is just what I want—but at twice the price I'd pay, which is why I'm not even trying the demo. (I could see $70 if it had OCR.) I'm open to other suggestions.

Wait—it gets worse. $99 is only for "Tier 0" scanners: TravelScan 464, DocketPORT 467 and 487, and the Fujitsu fi-60F. Any other scanner they support, including Fujutsu's ScanSnap models, is in "Tier 1"—which raises ScanTango's price to $150! The developer's main business seems to be Optix, enterprise-class document-flow software—the kind where the price isn't listed anywhere on the website—and ScanTango is just a small chunk of that. So I can see both how it continues to exist and why the developers wouldn't care if they sold many copies or not.
