  • 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.
  • Crashing

  • Cannot move files out!

    By New York +30
    After you reach some (unknown) size, iTunes does not show any of your files, it just spins forever. So you cannot copy them out of the app. Meanwhile iCloud is full. Stuck. The app developer made a huge mistake to depend on , the now to be removed, iTunes for wire file transfer!!
  • Simple to use for only( $3.99 ) its awesome.

    By true Review writter
    Super easy to scan. Document comes out great , I was worried about documents with small print on them and these up catches all. I like the fact one payment and does it. No need for subscription and free trails, I rarely need something scan and print and I hate looking for places to allowed me to print or scan, and few places have ridiculous fees.
  • New rev fails

    By Kyd42
    Long time user, always worked great. Today’s update crashes after saying “migrating libraries“. I’m sad now.
  • They submit your personal info to 3rd parties

    By iphonereviewer#2
    This app sends your GPS location data to a 3rd party tracker, Amplitude. I will not use this app and have advised friends & customers not to purchase it, and if they did, get a refund from Apple. It's pretty slimy to do this, Readdle.
  • Great scanner app.

    By MacFlagg
    This is the best scanner app I’ve used. It’d be a 5 star app, but I absolutely HATE the custom share sheet and workflows are to limited. The workflow doesn’t support any of the apps I use for work, like GoodNotes. I’d love to be able to scan a restuarant receipt and have it instantly shuttled over to GoodNotes to a specific notebook. That would be incredible. I also wish that you could have a setting where, when the app is launched, it’s already in camera mode, ready to scan, without having to tap the (+) button. This would speed up scanning receipts when I’m traveling. Otherwise, the app is just about perfect for what it does.
  • Previously a must-have app

    By No Global Settings
    This was the best performing app on my phone for several years. Last two updates cause it to crash upon opening. I emailed the developer and they asked for a crash report so I sent it to them directly but they never followed up. It’s been a month. I’m not the only one this is happening to based on the recent reviews. What happened to these guys? Updated 6-5-2019 After a month this app work again. Upgraded to five stars.
  • My go to scanner

    By Adco59
    I started using this app several years ago and have never had anything but a top notch experience. It works great.
