  • It’s really more of a 3.75 star APP Jun 8, 2018

    By MrEss1977
    Firstly, I will say that being able to fax from home without a fax machine is incredible in and of itself. This app allows you to execute this task. That said, there are some things you should know. While the APP is free, you are paying for “credits” that allow you to send faxes. Each 10credits is one page that you can send. The good thing is that does exclude your cover page, thats free. For 9.99 you get 250 credits or 25 pages. Secondly, there are no instructions. While the APP does a decent job being intuitive, I found adding the cover letter to be a challenge. I would click to the side of the letter and it kept erasing and I had to start over a bunch of times. I would highly recommend copying the body of your fax cover letter if it is lengthy just to save time as you get adjusted. Lastly, I would say to take the photo of whatever you want to fax over first before attempting to fax it. I didn’t see where you could the picture while “in the APP” to add it to your fax. All in all, it’s worth the time and investment because once you get the hang of it, it’s pretty smooth sailing. Didnt take long to complete once the fax is sent. Maybe a couple of minutes. Good luck and I hope this helps you.

    I’ve been using Tiny Scanner (same company) for a few years, since my (2004 edition!!) Quick-Books program mysteriously stopped creating PDF’s and THEN quit allowing me to print to “Nitro PDF Creator” as my chosen “printer” on the desktop either; so my biz emails all use iPhone “Tiny Scanner” pdf’s which is super convenient. Since I have to fax once-a-year or so, downloaded this & kept it on my phone with 10 purchased credits “just in case”, reasonable prices on credits, and not have an XR phone which max memory - Finally! - so not tempted to delete my rarely used or unused apps. I used it just now to apply with a paper application to be a poll-worker for 2020 election, when voting Nov 3, last week; similar cropping format to Tiny Scanner was easy to send my first fax; and comments regarding a time-lag when sending did not apply to me sending this local fax; “processing” whirly icon lasted a reasonable amount of time compared to a free standing fax machine & it said “sent!”(and asked for a review) Thanks ! Used to pay highway robbery prices at FedX for my occasional faxes

  • I TRUST TINY FAX 100%! Dec 26, 2020

    By Aroha Nui
    I have used the Tiny Fax App on three different iPhones over the last 3+ years. It is completely user-friendly, efficient and it flawlessly interacts with a variety of third-party document storage apps. The documents I fax include critical legal documents to federal courts around the US as well as critical correspondence to many other State & Federal agencies. Each of these faxes was time sensitive and in many cases I had no opportunity to send a follow-up fax if the first fax didn’t arrive properly. Final score: 100% successful. 100% on-time. 100% accurate. But here’s the icing in the cake: I had a question about 25 credits that didn’t ‘t appear on my App. I contacted Customer Support and within less than an hour (& outside regular business hours) they resolved the problem and restored not 25 credits but 50! It simply doesn’t get any better than this. From this customer for life, I recommend you try Tiny Fax before you try anything else!

  • I really wanted to like this app.... Aug 30, 2018

    After reading so many great reviews, I decided to try this app because I often need to fax things and don’t have a fax machine. My first fax was great and went through without a problem. I decided to pay 9.99 and purchase plenty of credits knowing that I would use them in the future. Unfortunately, when I went to use it again, all of my credits were gone. So I purchased 50 more for $2.99. But when I exited the app and came back in, all the credits were gone again. I sent an email to the company and was advised to make sure I was using the latest version because they knew about the problem and had fixed it. But even after making sure I was using the latest version, my credits are still gone. So I paid almost $13, and only sent 7 pages. I should have saved my money and went to Fedex. I’m very disappointed. UPDATE: I am adding stars to my review because the help center was quick to respond and help troubleshoot the problem. They ended up replacing the lost credits. I am impressed with the customer service.

  • Works well! Jan 26, 2019

    By elantee
    I have had very few occasions when I needed to fax something but being disabled i have to ask someone else to help me with it which isn’t ideal. This week I had to send a letter quickly and couldn’t find anyone willing to assist me this time but the customer service agent suggested using a web app and so I checked the App Store and found Tiny Fax. It appeared to have good reviews and so I downloaded it and bought 50 credits which cost $2.99 not $1.99 as another reviewer stated and after setting up a cover sheet and taking a screenshot of my letter which I had composed in Pages, I sent off a 2 page document costing 10 credits. It took a minute or so to send but eventually I got the check mark and that’s that. There should be a more obvious way to add spaces between the telephone numbers on the cover sheet, ( I used the * symbol ), but otherwise it seems very useful, although the cost was higher than expected though much cheaper and less hassle than a trip to the library or office store.

    Original version was called Tiny Fax, which was free and worked flawlessly every time. I only fax when I cannot email so each banks is somewhat dire for the recipient. Upon opening up tiny packs I found that I had to upgrade which I did also notice that each one was paid per fax, which was fine based off my past experience. I made the fax, and reported it was sent successfully by the app; but I was informed by the recipient that it never was received. Upon reporting this to the developer I was asked to get the phone number, which I did. Later I received an email telling me that the fax was sent successfully; Gee, thanks I told you that in my email to you. Apparently there is no remedy from the developer when this situation happens, so the money you spend is theirs to keep; which is fine, but I’m not going to go over and over this again and again via email for such a small amount. I simply won’t use it ever again, as I depend on each fax as I have no alternative. I found another app, that is free, that worked as I expected. I’ll keep it for now.

  • They refuse to give refunds!!!! Sep 29, 2018

    By Jeff_Kugler
    When I first set up the app I only needed to fax 2 pages, so I purchased 50 credits. Apple asked me for my password and the. It went back to the credit purchase screen. I thought it had r gone through so I clicked the 50 credit button again. I accidentally bought 50 extra credits, costing an extra 3 dollars. I immediately emailed TinyFax and they claim there cannot refund money, only credits, and that I should reach out to the App Store for a refund. I haven’t figured out how to request a refund from the App Store, I don’t think it’s even possible. Now TinyFax won’t respond to my follow up email. I basically spent $6 dollars and only had to fax 2 pages. Shame one this company, of course it is possible to issue a refund. This isn’t rocket science. Also, the company emailed me back in broken English and the email signature was in Chinese, so there seems to be no way to actually get these people to play by any rules or standards. Just put a very bad taste in my mouth. I would support a different faxing app.

  • Quick, Easy, Inexpensive, Convenient! Mar 16, 2018

    By KimberlysPeace
    Lately, I’ve been running into situations where scanning and emailing are (oddly) not yet available for some institutions, and this App has been a very convenient tool to get docs faxed. I know I can get them faxed for free at my bank, but this saves me the time and I can keep doing what I need without leaving. I either scan within the App, or use photos from my device as the image source, Cover pages are free, and then I buy credit coins as I need them. To fax 3 pages of my documents (+ the free cover), is about 60 cents a page. I don’t fax very often, so I don’t buy a lot of the credit coins (I think the bigger volume, the better the pricing), but the smallest amount is $2.99 for 50 credits, and the 3 Page + Cover Fax I just sent was 30 credits/$1.79 total. Cheaper than keeping a phone line for faxing, more convenient than driving to the bank or UPS Store. Thumbs up!

  • Easy To Use & Sends Timely Faxes Jan 16, 2017

    By SelenaThinkingOutLoud
    I used to pay for a month fax service that I used with my scanner. However, it was way too pricey so I was looking for an app on my phone that would be affordable but also easy to use and sends my weekly faxes 'on time'. I decided to give this faxing app a try 5 months ago now and it has been SO convenient and reliable. It is one of my best go-to apps on my iPhone. I just purchase 50 credits (pay as I go) through the app. Then I take a photo of my docs on my iPhone or you can choose a doc among your photos. The docs look great in the fax mode, which you can see before you fax them. You then enter the fax number and you can add a cover letter (if applicable) and then fax. All of my faxes are sent within 2-5 mins. and I see the SUCCESS prompt when it's finished. If the fax number is incorrect, it lets you know that too.

  • Fax. Jul 16, 2019

    By hilges
    My husband and I moved to the middle of nowhere and the closest town to us is about 30 minutes away. I needed to find a way to fax my old employer some of my documents. I’ve always used tiny scanner and I love it. When I saw Tiny Fax I was a little hesitant because we don’t have good cell phone service where we currently live. I purchased 50 credits for 2.99 it cost me 40 credits to fax 5 pages. I called my employer to see if they received it and they did receive my fax indeed. I never really rate anything but this right here needs a good rating. I was able to send a fax from the middle of nowhere just using very low WiFi and cell service. Worth my 2.99 purchase. Will be using from now on. It deff kept me from loading 3 small kids into my car and driving 30 mins away to fax 5 pages.

  • Facing great. Pricing strange. Aug 19, 2018

    By SageEcho
    From a fax tool perspective and usability this app is great and would be five stars. But the cost to send fax’s appears to be 10 credits per photo/page faxed. Not sure if that due to photo quality settings. When I started today there was nothing that told me how many “credits” my fax would cost me. So I had 40 credits and 9 pages to fax so I thought I was good. But in the last step of sending I was informed I needed more credits but it didn’t tell me how many more I needed. I assumed, then, it was 10 credits per page and bought 50 more credits for $2.99. And that did the trick. On the plus side you can easily create cover pages us camera or photos, edit, rotate crop pages and see fax results. The one other drawback is that it takes a while to upload my 9 photos to tiny fax for sending on WiFi so I had to wait about 5 minutes with a spinning icon saying sending but no idea which page it was on. 1,2,3 ... maybe in the next release? :-)

  • Good app Dec 6, 2018

    By Vixen036
    I have used this app for several years now and it is so convienient and a lot cheaper than going elsewhere and take the time traveling to complete a fax. I sent 5 pages for 40 credits and spent 2.99 on 50. It costs roughly ten credits to send one page. Cover page not included. I do feel that now that there are services offering first 3 pages plus cover for free they may consider doing the same. I have found it cheaper elsewhere on the web but since using this app for years now I trust it and have all my faxes I’ve done in one spot to reference to if need be. One more thing, when uploading a page to the app you can either take photo of page or select from your photo library and no option to upload a pdf document. I felt it should offer this as well for uploading pages. That is in reference to me using an iPhone with this app. Overall great app and reliable. Could be cheaper. Please consider reducing prices to match competitors.

  • Did not realize I would need to pay per page faxed Aug 25, 2017

    By LecPho
    I use Tiny Scan all the time, and it works great. You can pay for an upgrade to Tiny Scan but you can also get by for free. This app is free to download but not free to use. You cannot fax anything with it unless you pay for faxing credits. If you only need to rarely fax things it is easier than driving to the copy shop though, because who owns a fax machine anymore??? It is also not intuitive that you don't open Tiny Fax to use it if you scanned your docs with Tiny Scan. You just select fax from the send menu in Tiny Scan after you scan your pages, then Tiny Scan automatically takes you to Tiny Fax to send those pages as a fax. If you use your phones camera to take pics of your pages directly from Tiny Fax, you don't get the corner cropping dots so your fax is of your document plus whatever surface to laid it on the snap the image. Therefore I went through Tiny Scan since it crops according to your wishes and then turns the cropped image into a PDF which Tiny Fax then can send for you.
