  • Best Scanner App

    By Bookvamp
    Tried a few and found this the best of all. Fast and fuss-free, easy to use and ocr works better than most.
  • Love the App, But...

    By Michael_Zucker
    Really do love this app. Really put together well, so, thank you. There is only one issue. When I share with Apple Files the app frequently crashes. Click share, and when it looks for the folder structure, it frequently goes to a white screen and the only way to fix it to forage close the app. 5 stars without this issue.
  • Best Scanner App

    By Olive.juice
    I just want to say that this is by far the best scanning app I have used. It meets my needs and even does Fax! Such a useful app and I truly appreciate the efforts made to make this app the way that it is. Recommend over all other scanning apps.
  • Incredibly low resolution!

    By jmn4788
    If you want to use this to scan receipts or other documents, it turns out extremely low quality. Just take a picture of what you want, paste into Word and turn that into a PDF. This was a waste of money!
  • I liked and purchased the app

    By Mrs Alexandria Smith
    Just did not like the third party they sell your information to. It is the international call scammers. The app will also tandem into your contact lists.
  • Outstanding

    By CptnCraptastic
    Got this app on a whim. I can have documents emailed to me and fill them out scan them and either email them or fax them back. I can also save them to photos or transfer them into other apps. Used this so much with my business and my medical records. No stopping at staples and cussing at their fax printer crap set up. I can deal with this on the move. I hardly ever write reviews and never go back after owning something for awhile and write a review. Had this for over a year. Please don’t ever take this app down!
  • Great app for scanning text

    By aileverte
    Since I first started using the app — at which time my review wasn’t very favorable — the app has evolved enormously: the scanning options have improved, user’s ability to pinpoint the scan area (as well as the fact that if you’re short on time, you can scan something and make those edits later), not to mention the ability to condense what are rather hi res images into smaller files. The text recognition feature works well in English and French, providing the text is clear. This app has become my go-to tool, and I find I’m using it almost every day. It works less well with images because it’s harder to make a perfectly rectangular frame (you might be better off doing slight adjustment in some image editing software like Photoshop P.S.), but when it comes to text I’m really amazed how well it handles even a totally curled up sheet of paper. A few *tips* for new users: • the flatter you can place your original document the better; it matters less if your phone is perfectly parallel to the surface. ScannerPro will sort that out. • if you’re scanning B&W doc, it’s ok to have underexposed scans or shadows falling across the page. Again, ScannerPro does miracles with B&W text. • pay more attention to lighting & glare when scanning color documents or photos. Also be more careful about camera angles for best results. If done right you can scan in an old family photo and make it look like it was taken with your camera in the first place. • when scanning B&W docs the text may sometimes look squashed or too wide: adjust the format of the page: A4, Legal, Ledger... whatever, until the page looks right to you. This will not affect your printing ability: when printing you can always set the paper you want and scale to size. I’ve never even had to worry about that. • make sure all the pages in your document are the same size: you will avoid jagged angles if you’re reading on screen. • the scans are nice hi res. For B&W documents you can safely upload it to your cloud as Small. ScannerPro is actually better at reducing documents than Adobe. • if you’re scanning a larger # of pages, make sure to save the doc every so often, don’t wait until you’re done. Although ScanerPro is fairly good about crashes: I once had about 70pp in queue when it crashed and lost only 2. If anything else comes to mind I’ll come back & add to it. Improvements? • scanning pages that have little text on them but you still want to scan the full page often come out weird, and sometimes strange shadows appear in conversion to plain B&W doc that aren’t in the original image. Or scanning a page with a poem on it that leaves a lot of blank space to the side: that blank space often gets flooded by a strange shadow... • image scanning could use improvement. I would pay extra for the app if it had some improved color image extension. THANKS FOR A GREAT APP! It’s been a life saver!

    I have been using this app for a long time and love it. Am buying a house and it has been extremely convenient to scan documents to send to the mortgage company.
