I was desperate to stop a mistake I made when ordering new checks—and it was 8:30 p.m. and the printing company was closed! I searched for an apple fax app, found, and downloaded FaxFresh. In just a few minutes I had successfully faxed the correction. FaxFresh is a piece of cake to use. And it just cost me $1.99. I’m REALLY happy with FaxFresh and hlghly recommend it.
It does what it needs to do
Shipwrckd on 6/5/2018
Needed to send a fax immediately. Didn’t want to get up and put on pants. Downloaded app, made a pdf, made a debit payment, and sent a fax within 5 minutes without getting off my butt. Simple, no frills PERFECTION
musicaitalia on 5/30/2018
Best App for fax by far and I have tried 3 of them. This app is pay as you go one time purchase, with whatever method you chose from many secure types such as credit cards, Pay Pal etc. You can also simplify and create an account through Pay Pal if desired if you fax alot of documents. The confirmations, receipts, notifications are awesome, especially compared to “ghost” managed apps where you are on your own and have help sites attended by distracted middle schoolers that never respond. Point is, app is great and on rare occasion you have a problem, there is someone around. Just try it once.
GREAT Fax Solution. Wallet concious cost!
TigreAzul on 5/15/2018
Inevitably you run into the need where SOMETHING needs to be FAX’ed: A leasing or mortgage document…medical records…and the number of pages is crazy. When so many services are ready to rake you accross the coals and leave your wallet emptier than the promises of an orange snack living in the House that is White…FAXFresh jumps to it and gives you a solution. At a very minimal cost per page considering the alternatives…I jumped on this app with a 4.5 Star rating out of 401 ratings. I’m sure glad I searched the Mac App Store for a solution. Would recommend again and again. It’s super no-frills app that gets the job done. Even let’s you use PayPal for a secure transaction! Would recommend again and again and again and again! Need to FAX something? FAXFresh is your one-stop!
Does what it says
Pablo_Vilas on 5/10/2018
The app is simple to use, provided you have a *.pdf file no larger than 20 MB. A “Photoshop PDF” from Photoshop Elements 11 works. The use of PayPal for payment is reassuring. I notice that some rviewers report delays and slow performance. The two faxes I’ve sent so far went across in a few seconds. That might be due to my hardware or internet connection. If your file is larger than 20 MB, you can compress it by opening it in Preview and File > Export > Quartz filter > Reduce file size. However this makes any photographic elements of the .pdf blurry.
Okay, but could be way better.
fivesquaredprojects on 4/23/2018
Although this software seems to be made for Mac, it is pretty clunky. The Payment GUI is very un-Mac like- the window resizing during the “check out” does not work well. There is no auto-fill for address, etc. There is no Apple Pay option. It seems to take a LONG time to fax a document… This would not be a good solution if your were, say, sitting in a coffee shop and wanted to leave.
Great app!
worldwide traveler on 4/15/2018
This is a wonderful fax app that works as it should, both for faxes in the U.S. and overseas. There is no subscription fee—this app is great if you only need to send occasional faxes.
It Does the Job
Srbrute on 3/18/2018
Great App very straight forward without any unnecessary bells and whistles. The goverment and many companies still prefer fax over email - luddites I guess. But this app might be just as easy as email. Most of the complaints I have seen pertained to impatience while waiting for fax to complete send. They must be people that never used a fax machine as the time appears to be about the same time taken to send a regular fax. Extremely useful when forced to send a fax instead of email.
No cover sheet!
GrangerFX on 3/15/2018
I paid my $1.99 only to find out that the app never asked me for the cover sheet information such as who the fax should be sent to such as Attention: Someone So now my fax is on a machine in an office with a large number of people and they have no idea who it should go to. Thanks! Total waste of time and money. Avoid like the plague.
You’re kidding me right?
ReasonablySavy on 3/9/2018
Who wrote these reviews? The developers? I sat for 30 minutes, trying different fax numbers, differernt payment methods. Nothing. No thanks.
1.99 per FAX is reasonable and secure
NiceDay7 on 2/5/2018
Ok I have 1 Fax per every 5 years. FaxFresh is the way to go easy just print FAX document to PDF then drag to FaxFresh. I did compare this app to other apps and this was the most cost effective way to send them number of FAXs I have.
Pretty much a Winner
Alan Ray on 1/19/2018
I don’t really need a fax machine on my desk, but when I do this is very convenient. I like the Pay Pal option to pay and the “Fax Sent confirmation”. What would give it 5 stars would be the ability to fax other formats than PDFs
Only fax app that I could get to consistently work. Highly recommend.
cphillipsiTunes on 12/17/2017
Over the years I have tried a number of fax apps from the App Store. This is the only one that consistently gets the job done. Simple, easy to use, no complaints at all.
Two Tries, Two Failures
14hannon on 12/6/2017
I need to fax only two of three times per year. Based upon the reviews, I thought this would be a good way to go. In two recent cases, I used the service to send medical records. Both times took thirty of forty seconds to process, but FaxFresh sent me a confirmation in both cases the faxes went through to the correct fax numbers. However, in both cases, when I followed up, they said they never received the faxes. Very inconvient and frustrating. When you get a confirmation, you expect to fax to have been sent. Not with this app...
Nice App!!
Crystal~Lynn on 8/20/2017
I don’t fax things from home very often so using this app is nice. The only negative would be combining pages. I thought that the instructions was a little confusing because it took me several attempts before I got it to work correctly.
Needed some way to send a FAX
Yvgeny34 on 8/1/2017
For some reason, the medical community still insists on FAX records, so I decided to try this app. It’s simple and straightforward and gets the job done. I don’t send many FAXes, so I like that it’s pay per use. It would be nice if they used my Apple Pay account. Maybe in a future update?
Can’t authorize PayPal?!
Crusis on 7/24/2017
The program relies on Paypal for payments. After trying for 30 minutes, the program failed to process payment over and over and over again. Very frustrating! Tried using my credit card, and paypal balance. Had to cancel a very important 42 page fax and download iFax instead. Thankfully iFax worked without a hitch.
Pretty easy to use...
Rjzayda on 7/19/2017
Once I got the hang of the program, it was pretty easy and straight-forward. It did not process payment to my PayPal account, but I was successful in using one of my credit cards. I don’t have to send a fax too often, so this is a good way to do one… Reasonable pricing.
FaxFresh fax
Merton Louis on 7/12/2017
Great program, great price, and great support. Well worth the price for thoses who need to send a fax sporadically. I highly recomment it.
Simple, well designed, super convenient app
EdErickson on 6/29/2017
The app is fast and efficient and payment through PayPal is very convenient. The developer is also very responsive. I emailed him a question last night and got a response a few hours later. Having to send a fax in today’s era isn’t very common (at least for me). I love having this convenient, efficient, and cost effective option to quickly handle it when those times do come up. I have a multifunction machine with fax capability, but setting that up on a rare occasion or keeping it set up is just way too much of a hassle. I use the MFC unit for printing and network scanning and send my money to Jeff and company at Purple Cover instead.
Who has a fax machine anymore?
fgdeluccio on 6/27/2017
I can’t believe some companies or government agencies still require documents to be sent by fax! And who has a fax machine anymore?!! FaxFresh has solved this problem for me allowing me to easily send PDF files from my Mac to those still living in the dark ages with their fax machines. The cost to send documents is very affordable and they can be sent internationally. Two thumbs up!
PayPal not accepting their pay button - CRAP
nikin143 on 6/6/2017
UGH, there was an issue with the FreshFAX paypal button so NO payment could go thru. PASS on this until they get their stuff together. How can you run a payment based service and not be able to accept payments??
Worked Flawlessly
hrbie on 6/1/2017
I made a PDF via text edit. I imported all the documents I needed and then exported them as a PDF. Loaded it into FaxFresh and clicked the pay button. It took me to paypal, then processed the fax shortly there after. Paid $2.74 for 11 pages and I’m extremely happy with the results. I got a confirmaiton email after It sent successfully and that was it. I will definitely be using this app in the future any time I need to fax anything. It saves a trip to a store/print center and it saves on gas! =)
Perfect for occasional fax
Markehobs on 4/26/2017
I don’t need to fax very often but this app is perfect. Easy. Reasonable fee and Paypal. Will use it again….when I need it. And I won’t pay a fee until I need it. This is what sets this service apart from the others. Love it!
Great but outdated
Frogger123431 on 3/31/2017
Great app, I’ve been using it for 5 years but got no updates since I bought it. It would have been great to at least get address book functionality and avoid typing in fax number every time I send something to the same recipient.
Absolutely th e Best Fax Application for the Mac
MostlyDoc on 3/14/2017
I can't say much more about FaxFresh than I already have in the title of this review. From the price point to the simplistic use, the designers nailed it. And I love the PayPal integration -- gives me an extra sense of security during the payment process. Great Application!
Not a free service
Enough on 3/7/2017
This should read “In APP Purchases” but it doesn’t on the App Store. No mention of charges when you download, only if you click and look at the description.
lesnla on 3/3/2017
Excellent design - very simple and easy to use. However, I don’t know if my faxes are sent securely, and they take SO LONG to send it makes me nervous. I have sent one fax, and it took over 10 minutes to send 10 pages.
AnonymousVPO on 3/2/2017
I had been using iFax. Yesterday iFax was down, so I tried FreshFax. It was SIMPLE & worked exactly as needed. There are no bells and whistles in the app, but it does exactly as intended. Once it was successfully sent, I received an email for my records. I was incredibly relieved.
Works great but you have to have a paypal account
Connierae71 on 2/14/2017
I’ve been able to fax in the past, which is great, I wish it wasn’t exclusively paypal. When I go to fax now all I have is an option to pay via paypal…before I’m sure I could use my credit card. Such a shame because this is one of the only fax apps in the store that work…and I live overseas and fax back to the United States. Works great…just need another payment option.
It works
Frustration Landia on 10/5/2016
I only occasionally need to send a fax. We do not have a landline. This is just what I needed in order to send a fax over the internet through a wireless network connection. It worked fine. It relies on PayPal or credit card, in App, charged at the time of sending the fax. It took about 5 minutes to send the first fax, which was 3 pages. I expect it will be a faster process now that I am familiar with the app. I received a timely confirmation of the transmission, with a confirmation number, via the email address that I supplied at the time that I sent the fax. Very happy not to have to walk to a copy shop or something in order to send a fax.
Recommended Addition
Yogi-san on 9/29/2016
I think this is a great app. But should have the functionality to be able to review what files have been faxed - I just sent a fax and had two files that had similar names, I couldn’t tell which file was faxed. I would like to be able to have a list of what fax files were sent and date / time delivered. Otherwise - outstanding.
Excellent App
mbg1955 on 9/28/2016
This app couldn’t be simpler. You use Paypal as a secure method of payment, which is nice, and then upload your document to be faxed. Also, kudos to the support team for responding to my question about document security within an hour! That’s just fantastic service.
FaxFresh Delivers - painlessly (very quick and easy)
Ccbells on 8/31/2016
Found this App to be very easy and it got the job done without having go sign up for month service, etc.
Fast, easy, efficient.
hb1200 on 7/17/2016
Worked exactly as promised. I needed to organize my document, prepare a cover sheet (found at freefaxcoversheets.net, offered in Word but opened in Pages without issue) and PayPal option made the process seamless. Fax confirmed as sent via email, and activity window. Price was more than reasonable for a 6 page fax. Thanks.
fax from macbook
MarilynMuller on 6/30/2016
Wow that was easy!
Good BUT Needs IMPROVEMENTS! See My Notes!!
dnitram on 6/9/2016
The company I work for requires that we fax certain receipts along with a transmittal sheet. Normally, I have been driving 15-20 minutes each way to do this, which is time waisting… They’ll even pay for a in office land line, but like everything else, I’d have to expense that,too, with the same methods. I decided to try this app and see if it would save time. I couldn’t find any support as to what format it needed to be sent in, so researched and found out faxes go in a bitmap format, then converted my pdf file online to a bitmap format, which the app doesn’t take! Guess what, it DOES FAX A PDF format. OK, loaded the PDF into the app, entered the fax to phone number, then used Paypal as a form of payment. Spinning wheels….. said it was approving it and then showed an error! I clicked on it, confirmed payment and spinning wheels again! FINALLY it showed sent and got both a Paypal confirmation of payment AND a receipt showing the PDF document had been successfully sent. Be patient on the first time. Just hope the second time goes smoother! If the app developer is reading this, may I SUGGEST: Make the App a little Bigger on the screen! Add a way to store frequently used phone numbers so the user doesn’t have to look it up all the time. Make the payment process faster! Make the speed of sending the fax FASTER!!! PLEASE!!!
You can’t Fax if Doc is More than 20MB, no .JPGs
Guigo715 on 6/8/2016
I like to leave fair reviews. So, here it goes. The application seemed easy. It is. But, if you scan a document and even shrink it, you still cannot send it if it is over 20 MB (which it doesn’t tell you prior to doing so). Also, it doesn’t let you fax .jpg docs. You can only do so if your document is a .pdf. It also took a while to fax (once I divided the doc in two). It took like 15-20 minutes for 12 pages to be faxed. I found those two aspects troublesome. I did like that they explained how to convert a file (for those who don’t know) from a .jpg to a .pdf via Preview for the Mac. Because of the troubles encountered, I went ahead and used FaxZero, 25 pages for $1.99. You can’t beat that. So, for me this is not great and won’t be until they lift the size and document allowed. It is to fax something. Shouldn’t be so picky because many people don’t even have the means to convert documents to .pdf. I do, but the size just didn’t work.
JMR51 on 6/3/2016
Simple and easy to use. Technical support was quick and helped me resolve a problem which had nothing to do with app, but a mistake I made with payment method. These days almost everyone uses emails, but some companies still only uses faxes. This app is very easy to use. Just enter the fax number, load you PDF document, pay for just your fax and send. You then receive a confirmation email with a FAX I.D.
Worth The Wait
gstuedler on 5/31/2016
It took a little while to send, the fax number being sent to was busy, but it keep trying until successful. While it’s not as cheap as sending a traditional fax, as a ‘sometime’ option it can’t be beat!
Extremely Functional & Simple To Use
JCOLESTRING on 5/18/2016
I needed to respond to a request for information immediately. It took about 5 minutes from the time I located and downloaded the app from ITunes, loaded and sent the fax. I received a confirmation email within two minutes after faxing the document. It was quick, simple, and accomplished exactly what I was hoping it would do.
Could not be easier, great support!
Trampler on 5/4/2016
I faxed two pages and missed typed my email when paying (which is used to send you the confirmation). I emailed support and they replied right away with the conformation. I highly recommend this app.
Very pleased
Brownsugas on 4/28/2016
I needed to send documents to a government agency because as usual they did not have the ability to receive the documents by email. I downloaded the app, converted my webpage docs to pdf and dropped them into the FaxFresh tool. I used the help option because I had never used the pdf preview merge tool on my mac before. Surprisingly, the FaxFresh Help did a better job explaining how to use the preview merge better than the apple forums. I used my Paypal account to pay and I received an email when the fax was sent successfully and it only cost me $1.99. I saved on gas and waiting in line at my local office depot/kinkos. I plan on continuining to use and would definitely recommend to others.
Simple, fast and effective
pat17rick on 4/23/2016
I live outside the states, without a fax line. I have tried several other apps that claim to send faxes from your computer, but this is the only one that actually does it, without a single hitch. Scan the doc and save it as a pdf (unless you already have it as a pdf on your computer), enter the fax number you are sending to, choose the file from your computer, click pay and send, enter your PayPal info and you’re done. You get immediate confirmation as well as an email confirmation.
Simple and works as described!
Tomzer1 on 4/21/2016
Highly recommended for those of us that still have to connect to the 20th century by sending the occasional fax to some backward bureaucracy, this small and simple app does the job. The rates charged per page transmission are extremely reasonable next to other competing apps and services. Perhaps the only thing a user might have to be familiar with is how to stitch together a multi-page PDF file into one document that can be dragged and dropped onto the app for transmission. (Apple’s Preview or an app like PDFPen can handle making a single multipage PDF if needed.)
Worked the first time with no problems
CheckMate46 on 4/11/2016
Very easy to use. The only painful part is having to type out all of your payment information. Now if there was just a way to save that so that you could send the next time with the same payment method and not have to manually enter it all. And if that’s possible and I haven’t found it yet, shame on me.
Works Perfectly!
L Ross on 4/1/2016
I tried out FaxFresh this morning and successfully sent two 7-page faxes. It does take a little while but, hey, you’re sending to a fax machine. Someday, government agencies will get a clue and we will be able to scan & e-mail documents. Until then, FaxFresh is what I will use for all my fax needs. Payment was convenient and secure via my PayPal account. 5 stars for this app!
Multiple faxes not recieved.
pjbradley1977 on 3/29/2016
Sent multiple faxes using this app none recieved.
Sweet and simple and easy to use … still using, still love it
Typewriterman on 3/29/2016
My faxing needs are very sporadic and this app is perfect. It's easy to use (drag and drop the pdf I need to fax) and payment is integrated through PayPal, and I get a confirmation email when done. What could be easier and I like easy. — Update: My needs are still sporadic and this app is still perfect for what I need. It’s simplicity and ease of use are wonderful, and FaxFresh works with small jobs and larger ones. Saves me the trouble of running to Office Depot, Staples or FedEx to handle a fax job. Thanks, FaxFresh.
How Convenient
rhondatravels on 3/22/2016
The cost and ease of faxing makes this app a must have for folks that will only occasionally need to fax items. Less epxensive and much more convenient then driving out to a local store to print and fax documents. I’m in the process of buying a house and this app has made that process much easier.
