El Capitan Fix! (: - I too was having the issue with scanning from my HP All in One printer using El Capitan. Downloaded this and was able to connect and start scanning right away. I actually found i like this software better then any other software i was using. The other way i was doing this was time consuming. I had to edit and recrop all the images i was scanning. This application automatically crops the images you scan. Making it significantly shorter compared to other software and printers… Really nice (Also note if you're having issues try using USB, my HP Photosmart Premuim All in One C410A uses WPA to connect to the internet. With a new router this printer became completely outdated as it could not use Wifi anymore. So maybe USB will work better for you as well. Works great for me.)
Does Not work With Sierra - Updated, Works Now :) - I recently purchased a HP color laser jet all-in-one printer and after upgrading to Sierra I can no longer scan to my computer. I contacted HP support and after a lot of back and forth I was told by the tech support guy that the latest drivers have not been updated to support Sierra. In fact he had no idea if HP was working on updates at all. He recommended going back to El Capitan (not an option). Which brings me to HP Easy Scan. I had the previous version (1.5) on my Mac and of course it did not work with Sierra. I have updated to the latest version and the situation has not changed. Of course, when it was working the app worked fine and was useful for the majority of my scanning needs. I say shame on you HP. The drivers for your products should have been ready with the release of Sierra or within a week of its release at most. I am sure HP is not showing the same contempt for its’ Windows based customers. I recommend avoiding until HP decides to get their act together. ***UPDATE - December 3, 2016*** HP has just released a driver update. All is right with the world again. I have scanned to my computer thru HP Easy Scan as well as Pixelmator, Affinity Design and GIMP. Everything is working without a hitch. Scan to your hearts content. I will upgrade my rating to 3.5 stars. HP loses 1.5 stars for very bad customer service.

Worked Quickly and Perfect on my C4500 HP - Lots of bad reviews on something that worked for me! Thanks
Works fine on High Sierra - The latest version works fine on High Sierra. All the 1-star reviews… might have been on an older version? The tool itself works splendidly. It has built-in OCR, so the generated PDFs are searchable, both locally and on Google Docs. Exactly what I wanted for digitizing my documents.
Will not connect to scanner - Useless - scanner on multifunciton now rendered useless. Upgraded to Sierra 10.12.6 and old scan software quit working. Downloaded this new app and now refuses to connect via USB with scanner on Laserjet M1522nf (print function works fine). Now I can’t scan anything from Mac.
Works fine for me on High Sierra - Installed it. It found my OJ4650 right away, and worked as advertised. Very convenient. Bundled pages together in one document. Would be nice if it would also give you info on printer, such as ink levels…. making it look more like iOS version would be good!
Works for me but could be better - It works for me but I have a few suggestions. There should be more Send To or sharing options. Send to email whould be great. I often scan signed documents and would like to able easily send them back rather than saving to drive, attaching to email and deleting document. Share via iMessage would be great too. Why limit us to saving to disk? I wonder who would print a document they just scanned. It would so much easier to just copy it. Recommend adding button to start a new scan session. Would be easier than using the drop down menus. Straighten option would be great. Why can’t printers reliabily scan documents without skewing them?
