Clonewolf is a professional, modern and easy to use website which is clear on pricing. There are no tricks to make you sign up for extra money or to provide a better or different service to what they offer on the front page. The "Pay As You Go" system is really easy to use and you can buy one credit at a time as you need.

The accuracy of the scanner is hard to beat and you get a full report of matched text and all the relevant sources. It took less than 1 minute to find my text of 3000 words and the report offers more detail than most other scanners on the market. The email feature provided means I can send PDF reports directly to my tutor without needing to print or download anything to prove my work.

I love the detail I get with the results, however the main drawback for me is needing to copy and paste my text into the search box. I contacted Clonewolf support about this; they were friendly, replied the same day, and ensured me their development team would make file uploads available soon.
