Great Scan App
by Ed A. Bul on 2020/10/29 18:09
I have send in forms every day for work from my phone. This Adobe Scan makes it so easy to scan and organize my files. Absolutely awesome!
Great Scanning App
by Kub0224 on 2020/10/29 17:15
I have been using Adobe scan for 3 years now and use it for both work and personal use. It does a great job scanning documents with minimum if any cropping needed after the scan. Plus you get free cloud storage so you can easily access your scans in Adobe Acrobat. Highly recommend.
Easy to use
by Fish Family on 2020/10/29 15:16
Easy to use app with an easy to use interface. It does a good job finding page edges.
Good but limited or something wrong
by jenofmarin on 2020/10/29 13:56
I do like the app it has come in very handy. I haven’t even promoted the app however I spent a lot of time scanning documents last night that would not upload I figured it was because of Wi-Fi or something. And now I go back in and the drafts have just dropped away and now I’m going to spend a lot of time rescan and everyone of those documents page by page it was a lot so maybe that was the problem it would be nice if there was more of a Q&A than the forum because the form goes off on strange tangents that seem not related to the app. if there’s anybody out there who has information regarding technical support or why the app might be kicking documents off,I am using V iPhone 11 with maximum storage capacities. Is there reason Ap is not allowing a person to save PDF maybe after a certain threshold has been met? My business is paying for the monthly fee.

by Kareem Bassyouni on 2020/10/28 03:15
It scans properly and gives a variety of how you want your PDF, but it also scans anything that is through see-through glass or windows. So make sure to scan immediately or do multiple scans and merge them as 1 file.
Excelente!

Easy
by Rossco234 on 2020/10/27 21:12
I use this app all the time as a scanner for important docs and even some that aren’t so important because it’s so easy to use. It’s better than just taking a picture because I’m able to name the file so I can just search for it later. Originally I was I little frustrated that it wasn’t so easy to move the file into specific folders for later reference, but I’ve found that you don’t need to add long as you come up with a good naming convention and just search. The docs are all stored on the cloud too so you can easily get to them from your PC.
Great app

by walker2n on 2020/10/27 13:30
I love the app and how is it is to use. Especially since it will allow you to scan on the go and put the documents in the cloud for storage. Also if I scan something while I’m out of the office and uploaded to the cloud someone in the office can get the document from the cloud.
Love This App
by RMS060418 on 2020/10/27 13:01
I have been using this app for some time now and find it does an excellent job for my home use. The scanner is easy to use even for a nontechnical person like myself. Once you use it a few times it’s really easy. Great app..

by PhillyBarMaid@ on 2020/10/26 14:00
A derby skin app is unbelievably easy to use even for someone who doesn’t know much about phones or computers. You can easily just scan the document rename it and then share it to your drive an email etc. what’s nice about this outside just taking a photo of the document is if you have more than one and you scan all of them it’s one document flowing nicely not 10 different pictures and especially whenApplying for jobs and stuff they want everything and PDF file not JPEG and this app allows you to save your documents in either form. Great Job Adobe!
Terrific scanning

Printing from scan would be nice
by Mark Verizon customer on 2020/10/26 03:21
It’s a nice app for the iPhone and iPad. But it would be nice if one could print right from the scan, instead of having to go a pdf and then print. And make it easier for one to do just one page scan, instead of having it automatically charge into scanning the second and following pages. And allow renaming sooner, as the date of scan is rarely a descriptive file name for my work.

Handy & Efficient
by KerlyK on 2020/10/21 23:45
This app has been such a help when I need to send important documents, such as during mortgage refinance. It is easy to use. It doesn't matter much if you cant get the photo perfectly "squared," because it lets you adjust the document borders. If the photo doesnt turn out as you wish, you can retake it before it becomes set. There are other adjustments & fixes you can make, but they are probably described in the app store.
Awesome app

Intelligent. User friendly. High quality scans. No messy borders
by knorox on 2020/10/20 20:54
I tried 5 top rated scanning apps. Adobe’s app is the best one. - The interface is suuper automatic, great for multi page documents. - The post processing is impressively intelligent - way ahead of Cam scanner or Office lens - My scans don’t have messy edges with frustrated me with all the other apps. Very pleased with Adobe. 5 stars well deserved.
Works as described
by LuvnGrannie on 2020/10/20 19:02
This apps works as described. App was easy to learn and navigate. I didn’t give it 5 stars because as I started to get comfortable I suddenly realized everything was being stored in the Cloud & not on my device and that was the only option. Call me paranoid but I don’t store anything in the Cloud zip nada never nothing. I deleted all of the scans as they had personal information and deleted the app. If I had a choice of saving to a flash drive or my device so I could transfer to a flash drive I would have continued scanning and given 5 stars. For those who are comfortable with The Cloud you will very much like this app.

Reliable -replaces document scanner if you have few documents
by ercamel on 2020/10/19 17:30
Years ago I used a document scanner to reduce thousands of pieces of paper to readable pdf’s. It’s no longer supported software-wise, and I now only have to scan current documents. I decided to try this rather than buying a new scanner. So far, so good. It takes a few practice runs to get the hang of Adobe Scan, but it produces clear readable pdf’s.
Best ever!!

Disappointed
by AppleUser123abc on 2020/10/13 04:16
First thing this app does is require you to create an account. They lost me as a user right there. No, I'm not signing in with Facebook etc and giving Adobe access to my social media information. There should be no need to create an account or sign in to just scan pages and create a pdf file out of them. Second, it appears that you can only access the pdfs from Adobe's cloud. No thanks. I don't want my documents stored in your cloud. I want a pdf that I can email or transfer to another device without going through Adobe cloud.
A must have app

Horrible App, bad for Business
by RozeSnow on 2020/10/12 05:18
Tried this app as a traveler needing to scan receipts for my expenses. This app is horrible. Half the time you just get blank pages instead of the pictures you tried to take of the receipts. Horribly unstable app. I’m not sure if this is Adobe’s fault or Apple’s. Either way, try a different solution for your pdf needs.
Adobe Scan!

It’s so awesome
Shocked and Awed!!!! Excellent tool!
by CrossFire Legal Docs. on 2018/04/17 06:07
Incredibly handy, effective, and helpful. Take a moment how to learn how to use this app/software, and you won’t be disappointed. I’m not even super techy and it wasn’t hard to operate. I really could go on and on, but give it a try and you’ll definitely see yourself, especially if you’re a regular desktop to PC scanner. Ahhhhhmazing! If you don’t have access to a desktop scanner, or can’t get yours up and running, or on the go and can’t get to one and need to scan something, this is hands down one handy app. For personal or business use, it’s going to deliver. With this app on the go, you could literally work from the tailgate of your truck if you had to. It’s actually so cool and easy, it makes you want to scan stuff that you’d normally not, or put off. If you can hold your tablet or phone steady for pictures, then you can scan with this. Not to mention all the extra tools and features. As always, through the decades of use, Adobe continues to deliver and stay up on top of the technology game.
Great for anyone who wants to get paper to digital with as all Adobe tools.
by denniscd on 2018/01/18 02:51
The software is free, more intricate than it may seem, easy to use, and is backed by the comittment of Adobe, Inc. Product continues to improve, and combined with Acrobat or other Adobe iPad Pro apps, just about as good for someone who preserves, categorizes, presents, and shares documents after easy editing and repesoitory in the Creative or Document clouds. In the end, its user choice, with some good alternatives, but this has long term potential and integration is important for ease of use and quality control. I always return to Adobe Scan after trying everything else new. The developers I believe, will maintain their pride in applying knowledge from so many areas within Adobe, that it will become a “Professional” Standard in not too long. Enjoy watching techology change at an accelerating pace. We are envisioning capabilities as though they will come to fuition in a year, but what we can only imagine now, is already very likely a reaity in the making all around us. Thanks Adobe. DDoherty

by FoojyPod on 2019/09/15 19:21
I work outside my physical office many days of the week and find this has been an awesome tool that I can use anywhere to document transactions, take pictures of signed documents, checks that I write, letters that I receive, or simply anything at all that I want to document for later records or proof of events. I can photograph flat objects like documents, any kind of paper, even 3-D items I want to remember. I can photograph people and/or places and just click the button and I have a PDF record of the transaction, the person(s), the place where something happened or even a scenic shot.i can access the PDF documents from the cloud wherever I am, and using Adobe Professional Version add text, images, diagrams, notes or even other images and then easily distribute by email to friends, family or colleagues. Makes the job of documenting business or pleasure a breeze! I highly recommend it for anyone who works in the field, out of the office, or from a home office.
Excellent for scanning and sending documents on a tight schedule
by Debutante2013 on 2017/12/26 21:25
From having used this app for a little while now, I have found it helpful and convenient for scanning and sending documents on the go. The app is very easy to use, and allows you to send files through most apps that one would need to access pdf files through (ex: gmail, google drive, yahoo mail, Evernote, and so forth). I really appreciate how it allows me to save the pdf files within the app, so that I can access them at anytime. Thus far, I have had no problems emailing the pdf files through my gmail app, and saving them to google drive. The app scans very well, allowing the documents to come out clear, bright, and easy to read. I have also found that it works well with faxing apps, allowing me to be able to fax documents on the go with ease. Highly recommend for those who are working, college students, and anyone who does not have time to scan and send documents via a printer. You will not be disappointed!
Edge-finding and focussing (spelling intentional) capability less than perfect
by Vanessa123456780 on 2019/07/22 00:19
I chose to ignore Adobe’s prompting that I upgrade to AdobeScan from the scanning feature included with the Adobe PDF app for a while, because when I’d tried it, it had “grabbed” the document it was supposed to scan as if on some sort of fast-forward setting and estimated the location of the document’s edges incorrectly. It also didn’t take enough time to get a properly-focussed (spelling intentional) image. I’d realized that I needed to figure out how to perform the scan manually, in order to get it precise enough, or find another scanning app. During a later attempt, I was relieved when I was prompted to disable the psychotic-seeming autoscan setting — imagine a coworker coming to your desk and frantically dishevelling a neat pile of paper documents sitting on it while you watch — which I’d never chosen to activate to begin with. With that setting shut off, however, the app still doesn’t “find” the document’s edges as precisely as I’d like. It gives you the option of adjusting its placement of them yourself; however, I preferred the scanning feature of the Adobe PDF app to this separate, supposedly-superior Adobe Scan app.
Amazing AND Free?!?!
by NvrDoRvws on 2020/08/04 21:29
I hate writing reviews, but when I get an app that is free and does exactly what I was expecting (with no ads btw), I feel compelled to write a good review since they aren’t making any money off from me. It was simple, easy to use, and had more features than I was expecting. It allows seamlessly easy photo taking of any document/business card/etc., and allows you to crop it how you would like it, or has an auto feature that works wonders. I messed up on some paperwork I needed to fill out, so I tried for an hour to find a scanner that would allow me to upload the image into a pdf file, and allow me to ‘clean’ up the document so I could refill out properly. It did exactly that with no stinking ads constantly popping up, and without any pop-ups that ask you to do a free trial or to sign up for $X money. I’m very impressed by the simplicity this app gives me, and hope this review helps others looking for the same thing I was about an hour ago, lol.
Adobe knows how to do it right
by Alessandra H. on 2019/01/20 21:43
Adobe Scan is by far the best mobile scanning app I’ve ever tried. Downloading and having this app on your phone essentially negates the need for you to own a traditional scanner in my opinion. The first time I tried the Adobe Scan app, I was genuinely astonished with how well the papers I scanned turned out. I’ve tried so many other “scanner” apps listed in the App Store, but every one has either been completely, or came with a catch that outweighed the apps value in my opinion, so when I found Adobe Scan, I was stoked! I definitely recommend at least trying Adobe Scan out. Now, of course if you need a higher than normal scanner for higher resolution, sharper scans, then of course an app isn’t going to be of help, but for a normal, everyday person—Adobe Scan is perfect, and believe it or not, but it’s actually pretty surprisingly handy to have a scanner in your pocket at all times too!
The best
by Enough to know better on 2020/08/08 18:39
This is the best scanning app out there. It will auto scan each page for you but you can still edit each corner of the page manually. And because the brilliant when you pick a corner to edit it zooms into that corner in a little bubble outside of where your son is so that you can actually see what it is you’re doing. You can edit each page by caller you can erase certain portions of it you can draw on the pages you can email a link of the PDF to someone you can email an actual PDF to someone. You can export the PDF as JPEG files. There’s nothing that this app can’t do. You can re-order the pages if you scanned them in the wrong order. You can come back to the same file later and add pages and edited at any time. If there’s a better app out there then I have not seen it because I don’t think it exists. I am a teacher and this has saved me countless hours.
Adobe Scan is a Winner!
by Yogi Angeles on 2018/09/21 23:24
This is one of my favorite apps I use to save any document or receipt I want to have on hand and available to refer to in the future. I have tried several different scanning apps and Adobe Scan is by far the best scanning app available. My documents, receipts, photos, etc. come out perfect every time! Adobe really goes above and beyond when it comes to making their apps user friendly while also providing as many options as possible for the customer’s convenience. This is why this app is my “go to” when I need to scan in snd preserve a document, receipt, etc. I am never disappointed with the final product. Thank you for taking the time to think of the customer and going that extra mile when developing the apps you have available on the market so far. I will continue to look for Adobe products first for all of my project needs!
Simple and brilliant
by OldFolkster on 2018/06/05 23:49
I had just about given up trying to find a “free” scanner that would actually work and was actually free. I had tried so many others that would fail in one way or another. One was so fussy about recording an image that it was almost impossible to make a scan. It kept telling me to move closer even though the page already filled the screen; then it told me to hold still, and refused to take the picture. Another managed to make an image but then refused to let me do anything with it until I “upgraded to pro.” Finally, I discovered the Adobe scanner. What a difference! Producing a clear image was fast and easy. I made a series of scans of the first page, and found that I could leaf through them quickly, deleting all but the best. Then sending off the resulting scan by email was a snap. This app kills the competition; it isn’t even close.
Use of Adobe
by Ellie-May77 on 2020/08/06 13:29
I have only been able to use Adobe for a few days but I have found it to be extremely useful and I love how fast it helps me with information about a photo when I only have to ask Adobe to give me the information about that photo. I can tell when I get more familiar with using Adobe it will benefit me more and more. Thank you! Kristy Keller I really don’t know how to use the Adobe to my advantage. I’m afraid of loosing valuable information. Like making sure I am able to get organized and remember where i put it. I need to Adobe scan my passport, drivers license, social security, Birth certificate, Notary, voters registration, concealed weapons permit, organ donation, power of attorney and keep them in an organized way. That’s because I’m not good with being a secretary. I know this is going to make my life so much easer when I get it. My health records and dated how awesome. Thanks Kristy Keller
Love this app!
by hfjsidje on 2019/01/26 18:16
Being a business person on the go, I’m not always near a copier or printer to be able to scan documents. This app has been life saving. I also try to upload everything into cloud based storage systems and drives for clients so the ability to take a picture, have it converted into a .pdf for less storage space is a Godsend. I now use it daily and love how I cannot only upload to where I want it to go but I can also email and text the docs immediately. Quality is as good as the camera on your phone. It will pick up colors although the letting the app choose the parameters of what you want on the document can be frustrating if there are lines that separate sections. But that is very minor and can be fixed by just moving the phone closer or farther away. I even have other colleagues using this app now because of the convenience.
High Image Quality and Easy to Use
by fellowhuman on 2020/04/18 23:58
Apple Notes’ scanning function is nearly as good but Adobe seemed to produce slightly clearer documents when zoomed in (may be completely negligible and may increase file size) and seemed to more consistently automatically capture page borders such that I found it rare to need to adjust. One drawback for me is that all documents are automatically uploaded to Adobe’s cloud. I didn’t test any other features being that I have simply been wanted to scan black and white documents as efficiently as possible with sufficiently high quality. I have also used JotNot, which has enhancing functions that seem to work well but there is some scan limit with the free version of the app and the high quality of Apple Notes’ and Adobe Scan seems to make those more advanced functions unnecessary for my purposes.
Adobe Scan review
by Vivitude1 on 2018/11/08 08:03
Too soon to tell. The program keeps shutting down while scanning. I don’t yet know if the OCR function works, nor have I had time to figure out how to turn off auto scan. I’ll have a better idea once I’ve had a chance to use this app for more than 10 min or have just scanned only 5 pages. I would have waited to comment except an annoying pop-up showed up on the screen asking me to review the app right in the middle of when I was trying to save a pdf, so if my document wasn’t saved, I’ll feel even more annoyed than I was with this app only 10 mins ago. If I may make a suggestion it would be to please wait a little while longer to ask for a review and figure out a way to do it during a moment when there isn’t any scanning saving activity going on. Most people don’t want to stop and review an app when they’re in the middle of using it, especially apps that replace often used office machinery and tasky work like activities. Thx.
Adobe rocks!
by blue becky on 2018/08/07 19:00
This app really saved me big time! I’m impressed with how easy it is to use.. I was in a hurry so I didn’t even look to see if it has a tutorial! I am the process of trying to get my son enrolled in school where there is serious competition.. so little things like an unreadable, blurry or cut off document can mean you lose your spot.. this happened to me and if I hadn’t found this appt Adobe so that I could quickly scan and upload the content...it was a legal sized document, so trying to take a picture was almost impossible! I have an iPhone 6, it took about 3 minutes to download and open , and another two for me to figure it out and get both pages flawless and emailed out to the school! 5 minutes!!!! M so thankful as we would have lost our place of I’d had to go out and find somewhere to help. So thank adobe!!!
A very useful app !
by Seanpaulcurran on 2018/08/17 04:48
Up front, I’m giving this app four stars only because the scan process is not as streamlined as I would like it to be (the scan can be a little frustrating when it does not get the entire page). OTHER THAN THAT. This is a useful technology that is highly efficient in creating PDF documents that used to take one scan per page on a slow printer. So I’m very happy that I found this app and I do highly recommend it. I used this app with a 12 page medical document today, I am really happy that I didn’t have to scan twelve pages; one by one on a traditional scanner. It cut my documentation time down by about twenty minutes !. I got this done in 10 minutes with the app!. Adobe could improve on the apps process of “hover” technology in which sometimes the app takes a photo too soon and results in a cut off doc photo. After a few delete / re shoot - I got it done.
No more half finished notebooks and scraps of paper!
by Overstimulated on 2019/10/06 18:10
I journal a lot, and make plans and lists for what I want to do with my life. Unfortunately I do this with any spare notebook or piece of paper and so then I have a hard time throwing things away because they feel like important documentation of major turning points in my life. I like rediscovering them to see how far I’ve come, but they left my place cluttered. I’ve never had such an easy practical way of securely archiving all these various scraps. The pics with my phone are shockingly clear and the apt makes it easy to control the edges and make multi-page documents so it’s easy for me to make collections of writings and pictures. Reading my hand-written scrawl in odd form is actually easy and enjoyable. Thank you for making it easy to de clutter while still hanging on to every memory!
actual scanning is great but bugs remain
by sbma44 on 2020/01/01 15:12
I couldn’t get any scans to save when I first installed this despite closing the app, reauthing—all sorts of stuff. Now, weeks later, it works fine. Maybe it needed a phone restart? Who knows. The other major bug is that it appears to not have a notion of folder hierarchy in Google Drive beyond one level. Hard to say if this is Adobe’s fault or Apple’s, because Drive integration appears to only be available via the iOS “share” menu. It’d be nice to have new docs sent to a preferred cloud provider automatically rather than just Adobe’s—the share workflow is clunky—but perhaps this is best filed under “don’t hate the player, hate the game”. Otherwise this app does a nice job of border detection, OCRing and sane defaults for leveling colors etc. No watermarks in the free edition! And the upsells seem to be for other adobe apps, not for features. In this respect it compares favorably to CamScanner (though the capture process is perhaps a bit slower).
I’m Impressed!
by Lady.CF on 2017/11/30 18:42
I had to scan and send a copy of my lease to a company within two days of downloading this app and surprisingly, it worked perfectly! Quick, intuitive, and straightforward. Most importantly, the final version of the scanned document looked legit, as if scanned with a large, high-end machine. Very, very impressed, as I was concerned the final PDF would look wonky or have skewed alignment. Not the case at all. My only feedback for improvement would be for Adobe to combine this app with the main Adobe app as well as with the Fill & Sign App. Storage on my phone isn’t an issue but having one app that does three major tasks would be the most ideal scenario. Either way, this app works well for what it advertises. I hope the quality is maintained. For now and after using it with excellent results, 5-stars.
Really great app
by Hope_ut on 2019/05/20 19:59
This app is making my life much easier. When I need to scan at school with a ‘real’ scanner, I usually have to walk down the hall, and if something is bound or stapled I have to lay down each page, and it gets confused on the size, etc, so when I walk back down to my desk I see it screwed up, the density is all wrong, etc. With this app, I can take pictures of each document at my desk quickly and crop to the size I like (which doesn’t have to be 8.5 x 11... although I wonder if there is a way to force the aspect/ratio if needed; I’ll have to look into that!). It is super easy, and then I can either email it to myself or go to the document cloud online. You can rename the files in the app too, something you can’t do easily on a giant scanner! I love it.
GREAT APP!
by Shaybozbo on 2019/10/10 12:28
I normally don’t write reviews for apps for this app is so good that I had to! This is definitely one of the best apps for school! I homeschool so I lose a lot of my work or I had something in that I end up needing but with this app I have al of my work right in my phone. At first I thought it would be the same as taking a photo in your camera app then putting it into an album but it’s totally different. You just take a picture and the app finds the border of the paper that your taking a picture of. So now you have just the paper and nothing in the background. You can also put photos in to albums. I also love that it keeps the photos in the app and doesn't add the pictures to your camera roll. I have not complaints about this app and I definitely recommend it!
Super Awesome!
by BritBrat1212$ on 2020/10/03 23:20
The Adobe Scan app was one of the best mobile app scanners that also included its own cloud storage, without having to also fill your photos with pics as well. NOW IT IS DEFINITELY THE BEST MOBILE APP SCANNER!!! And when you use the trio, which includes Adobe PDF Reader and Adobe Fill and Sign, YOU ARE READY TO LITERALLY EXECUTE ANY FUNCTION OF BUSINESS AS IF YOU WERE ACTUALLY SITTING IN YOUR OFFICE AT HOME OR WORK.(when you can be sitting on a beach or even at a ballgame!) I love the new features Adobe Scan has added to truly your scanned document, and all while still remaining a free app. Of course, you can upgrade Adobe PDF reader and it has some key perks to the upgrade, BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TOO! The Adobe apps are great. Subsequently, the Adobe line-up has played a key role regarding my entrepreneurial “wins” and work/life balance.
Another solid Adobe product
by NEKEagle on 2019/02/28 23:51
As a former IT and DP guy, I've had loads of experience, from the early 90's till now, with Adobe products. These days, happily enjoying early retirement, I'm only a basic user but from my deep well of experience and more current use of this product (and other Adobe handheld device oriented apps), I can say that this is 100% a top notch product. Everything works seemlessly, from doc capture to editing to reediting to sending, the process is almost stupid simple! And she doesn't skimp on features. Even for a basic user I can access much of whatever I need to. As a premium user, I have no doubt that this app would easily crush any competitors offerings and, more importantly, deliver the most professional quality your demanding.
Another Indispensable PDF App
by platojet on 2019/03/17 21:02
I love working in PDF. A huge part of my workflow is done in PDF format. For a long time, I stubbornly refused to buy a scanning app because I believed the quality wouldn’t match the quality of PDF from a desktop scanner - contempt prior to investigation. This app scans box top serial numbers, product keys, email, etc., from your camera into PDF. They’ve built in some very smart processing that converts your photos into high quality, readable PDF. I was wrong about the lack of quality vs desktop scanners. While it’s true that not 100% of my Adobe Scan files are “desktop scanner” quality, I have a very high standard for readable documentation and I’m impressed with the quality of the PDF generated by Adobe Scan and the app’s versatility. There’s very cool function that allows Adobe Scan to find potential PDF from your photo collection, (eg receipts, serial numbers, etc.). Nice! I know the serious privacy people won’t like that. I respect that. I like that time saving feature tho. I’m very satisfied with Adobe Scan. If you’re a power PDF user - you know who you are - you’ll be happy with this app.
Document size
by Mammothx on 2020/05/03 23:41
Works great with a two exceptions: 1. When cropping/setting corners, I can set the crop corner perfectly but as soon as I release my finger the corner shifts and I have to redo it. It takes several attempts to get it where I want it. iPhone 8. It’s almost like I need a stylus to use this app. 2. There’s no option for setting the finished document size. So I can “scan” multiple pages of an 8.5”x11” document and crop nearly perfectly, but each page will end up different sizes entirely (often times much smaller than Letter size). This is frustrating when printing. The best print from PDF setting is Actual Size (Fit to Page is garbage), but if anyone prints actual size the document will print much smaller than original size and each page will be a different size. Basically, the result is an unprofessional PDF.
The free part does more or less what it says
by CRSlack on 2017/12/02 18:26
Do you think that you will be able to import a pdf (scanned) and turn it in to a pdf with searchable text? No. (Or if so it’s not at all clear how to import anything except a photo from your photo library). Do you think that you will be able to extract a text file from your scan? No. But if you can you are pretty clever. What you can do is take pictures of your document, import them in to Adobe Scan, reorder the pages and save the combined pages as an Adobe pdf with searchable text. You can export the pdf file as a pdf and e-mail it. It does that pretty well and deserves a good rating for that. What about the subscription? It is very expensive and Adobe doesn’t really say what you will get. You have to pay to find out or perhaps you will need to do a lot of web based research. One of their blog posts talks about the beauty of the free service and its unlimited usability. Frankly some of us don’t have the time or need to use it with no restriction. We would rather have more functionality with volume limits. I would be willing to pay some amount ($2 mo) for no more than 50 pages per month. But that is my use case.
Ughh what a pain
by 0v0z~ on 2018/03/26 16:21
I have used Adobe Acrobat to scan and send documents with no issues until I had to download and install Adobe Scan. You have to set up an account to use the app; once you begin using the app it will take the picture before you have time to situate or align the document the way you are satisfied. It also stores your documents in a different ‘Local’ than Adobe Acrobat even though you opened Adobe Acrobat to make the scan. If you try to open a document created with Adobe Scan in Adobe Acrobat it gives you an error then shows it is in the cloud. Maybe it me learning a new app but don’t make me download something new when the other was working for me.
Love it!!
by Bugbug 1919 on 2018/03/27 00:25
So I am going through the home buying process and I need to send multiple documents to my lender. I have a printer that prints but it doesn’t scan because of a missing cord. Anyhow, I usually would rather send everything through a PDF file because I work 8-5 Monday through Friday and it’s bad traffic around 5. With this app, I print what I need, snap a picture and it will correct the brightness, look, rotate it, EVERYTHING - so it looks like I scanned it! It has made my life so much easier, I recommend it anyone and everyone that needs the convenience of just snapping a picture to send documents. It even lets you send the file through your email, save to your cloud, anything.
Creative Cloud Is The Only software package you’ll ever need or want for creative projects
by pvp1972a on 2019/05/18 16:01
Adobe Creative Cloud subscription is a great deal on some of the best apps I’ve ever used. A single monthly fee gets you the latest and greatest in over 30 apps ranging from the newest acrobat reader to illustrator. Access to the customer forum as well as a plethora of tutorial videos provides an unlimited amount of support . Subscription makes it possible to self teach yourself to use even the most advanced features on the latest apps. The typical user with a minimal amount of computer knowledge can make professional quality documents, artwork, video, photos and editing. PLUS....... Mobile versions of many apps to use in your smartphone. It allows you to access your projects quickly and from anywhere. The phone apps make it easy to work on something even if you only have a few minutes and your on the move. Allows you to get ideas started or realized Instantly, before you forget the great idea in the distraction of the busy day. Simply stated , the best deal around
Adobe Scan
by Alife2BLived on 2019/06/16 17:33
The Adobe Scan app is pretty basic in terms of features. I downloaded and installed it as an easy way to manage all of the business cards I come across in my travels. I rate the app two stars because if you have a number of business cards you want to store, when you open the app and select business cards, then proceed with capturing the numerous biz cards you might have, the app stores them all in one continuous stream automatically or all in one document (pdf), rather than store each biz card as its own document (pdf). To do it any other way, you have to snap each card and manually convert it to a document or pdf. Each snap of the camera should assume -especially with biz cards, that it’s two sides or pages maximum and do the conversion at the end of the second side or page rather than the default be a continuous document.
Love Adobe Scan.
by sctrojangirl on 2018/05/29 12:17
I have used Genius Scan, Scanner Pro, then for a second PDFfiller Scanner(which was horrible. Bad scans, never found the borders, unusable.) Then the heavens parted and a bright light shown down and there it was Adobe Scan. It’s fast, easy, takes great scans, and it has so many features that I haven’t even tried yet. My favorite part about it is how easy it is because it is so intuitive. It finds the borders automatically and takes the scan for you, then it crops it and adjusts the brightness and the color for you before you even open it. You can readjust if you don’t like it, but every time the scan has been perfect. Best scanner I’ve ever used and.....IT’S FREE!!! Ahhhhhhleluiah!
Amazing App
by TheRizviConciliaore on 2018/05/25 13:04
It’s almost as if it’s going to do a fast scan of documents you have before you! Yesterday I was at the law library and can say I scanned over 250 pages of law procedure and both statutory and case precedence when it comes to filing appeals via an extraordinary writ on a criminal law matter, and how to file and what to file on child custody matters, two things that are what I am spending a great deal of my “free time” doing these days! This app as been invaluable in helping me organize evidence such as receipts, and in having both case law and how to on family law law and motion procedure. I am grateful for this app and I highly recommend you use it to get paperwork and clutter once and for all put away for good
Incredible quality scans, free to use, faster than using my printer/scanner
by kceltik on 2019/11/10 13:40
See above. No but honestly, this is one of those apps that I use only a few times a year but when I use it I always think, “that was SO easy.” Many adobe products are cost money to use even for the occasional user or require expensive upgrades in order to get full functionality. This app it’s not the case. Quickly snaps multi page document into PDF then let’s you clean them up, reorganize and edit your scans using intuitive tools to make it look as good or better than what you get from a traditional scanner machine. I never leave reviews for apps, ever. This app deserves it.
Adobe scan is everything is exactly why I love Adobe products!!
by Firseler@7se on 2018/07/10 17:56
I highly recommend DEBBIE scan, you will be very pleased to see how well their technology works in scanning documentation by using your camera that comes out literally better than using my normal scanner on my computer which takes hours skinny one document at a time, wasting at least 30 seconds for each page Just to scan each page and it can take up to 15 minutes to half an hour to include an entire document. This can take you three minutes or less and you’re done and now have a perfect PDF file. Try it and you will never go back to the old-school ways
Business and life made easy
by 23essentialoils.com/ on 2019/05/08 19:10
* facts at bottom* I have suddenly become a rental owner and manager when I picked up the business after my husband was no longer able to continue. I needed help and something to make the business make sense and get organized. I scan it, share, email to my business (or personal) email, save in google drive from there (so it’s saved in two places) I now use it to take pictures of my kids art, my grocery budgeting, of course all of my bills and I’m about to start saving all my years of journaling! Yikes that’s a lot! I take notes at my church and have kept them saved even though I never read them again, because of this app I no longer have to waste that space but I can still have the notes that change my life! * quick - I take a picture of every receipt and email it to my google docs while standing in line. * easy - I am a bit of a ditzy blond without the blonde. I can do this. Anyone can. * operational - it connects to everything I need it to. - email - docs - adobe reader - printing - I’m sure tons more
Adobe Cloud Privacy Problem
by Max the Mike on 2018/06/23 15:35
I got Adobe Scan. But, it is not a stand alone app. Scans are not stored on a device, e.g. iPhone, but in Adobe Cloud. After cloud storage, individual files maybe downloaded back to a device by the copy/paste function. This can be very time consuming without an in mass option. Further, there is a problem with confidentiality and privacy given a nondisclosure agreement for scanned information. Further, the app assumes cloud access by any mode of connectivity to Adobe Cloud via the Internet, which is not everywhere & always available anytime regardless the cost. This amounts to loss of control of ones information that results in lost empowerment. Thus, the whole purpose of a device, e.g. iPhone is defeated or lost. It maybe that I do not know Adobe has solved these problems. Lastly, the paramount issues the app raises are about information availability, legality, safety, & security. Sincerely, M A
Excellent App! However...
by S&J on 2020/09/21 22:21
Great app that allows you to take multiple photos of documents and pages and turn them into pdf documents. The app automatically finds the borders, which you can adjust on the fly and takes the photo. Tons of editing/tuning options. -1 star for not being able to set some additional preferences/defaults. The app always defaults to “Auto Color” which is not very good and doesn’t look natural. I always have to change it to “Original Color”. Even though there is an option to “apply to all pages” it doesn’t seem to work and I have to do it for each page. Other than that, solid app to use for submitting those distance learning assignments and other items.
no-nonsense, and handy (:
by madi101112 on 2020/05/11 21:29
I never write reviews but as I was closing this app after using it for the millionth time, I figured it’s the least I could do for a free app that’s saved me a lot of time and effort! I’m a broke 20-something lol so I used to have to go out of my way to the local library anytime I wanted to scan something. (annoying) 🙄 This app is free, so if you need a quick scan/pdf converter, it’s a great app for that! (: Just take a picture, crop the borders, and you can choose a way to send the pdf to yourself. I think you can pay for some extra services too. They’re not pushy about it which is nice, but I believe there is extra stuff if you need it!
Awesome
by BabsDJr5 on 2019/01/28 09:29
This app is great scan for using while on your phone. You can scan pages that are if importance and make notes and you can have them accessible at your fingertips. All in one you can share items you scanned with others in seconds flat. Great from those who are multi tasjwrs or that are in book clubs you can scan & put notes once you open up in Adobe reader which has a button on scan so all you have to do is hit and it open up the Adobe reader (as long as you have instslled$ a mbvms f then highlight and make note you came open up when book vlunmeets and you done have to carry whole book with you. 5 + ⭐️ from me.
Adobe equals AWESOME
by RinAthens on 2020/08/19 10:28
All things adobe apps are “top shelf” compared to every other PDF/DOC editor, Hands down!! It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and surprisingly useful in ways I didn’t think were included...let alone So affordable! Even the free versions go a long way, most people don’t even need to pay the small fee if it’s just the basics want. I just hope they find adobe first before downloading various other apps with a wide range in random subscription costs before it’s too late. I’ll probably never switch now after all that time paying for poopy apps, it’s not a fun experience Thank you! You’ve made one person very happy. That’s always a ting plus
Highly recommended

I recommend giving this app a shot. I’d been using another mobile PDF scanner app for years called Genius Scan. It did the trick okay, but it wasn’t great at automatically determining the size and proportions of the document I was trying to scan. Plus, to get much of the useful features (exporting to any other app like Google Drive, Evernote, etc) you have to pay to upgrade. I was happy enough with it, but didn’t know what I was missing until I came across Adobe Scan by chance a few weeks ago. It’s been great! The UI/UX is sharp and very usable. It auto scans much more quickly and effectively and is much more of a joy to use.
Software is now broken
by -bp on 2019/05/30 04:59
Adobe updated this scanning program and removed the main feature that I used to use it for. The program used to automatically adjust a scanned document straightening edges if you scanned at an angle and automatically cropped the document. I wished I never updated this program because it is now useless. Adobe got back to me to fix the issue. I needed to turn on the auto mode and change the option to not adjust the borders after every Scan. I wish that they didn’t change the location of the shutter button because it is awkward when scanning a portrait document. Thanks Adobe.
Adobe Scan - initial review
by JMS Los Gatos on 2018/06/27 22:40
I have moved from Scannable which was integrated with Evernote, on to OneNote and it’s related App, Office Lens, because I like OneNote so much more than Evernote. However, I find Office Lens does not produce the best results from difficulty identifying documents, to out of focus situations, to missing or incorrect capture of business card information in my iPhone Contacts. In an initial test, I found Adobe Scan did a great job of capturing notes from my Moleskine notebook and enabling me to copy them into OneNote. The experience was better than using Office Lens. I do this in situations where I cannot type notes directly into OneNote. For now, I will continue to use Adobe Scan.
When I say THEE BEST, I mean it
by Sheep-stalker on 2018/03/14 20:59
I can’t tell you how many other scanners and pdf apps I’ve searched for, downloaded, disliked, and deleted, but, trust me, there have been A LOT of them. This app is not only like-able (can’t say the same for ANY of the others I’ve tried), but its phenomenally easy to understand, user friendly, and all encompassing in what you would want and expect in this app. ALL WITHOUT ADDS!! Seriously, the free to use features on this app is fantastic in-and-of-itself; get that, it’s great. But I, myself would never want to pay for in-app purchases on any other scanner or pdf app other than this one, because I say, any other app is NOT worth your time.
Adobe Scan

App has been working pretty well so far. Auto capture/focus is a convenient feature but sometimes captures image so fast you don't have time to get the entire document under the camera before it snaps a picture. I've found that using the "original photo" yields better results if under any light, other options will make parts of page super white so reading would be tough, and greyscale isn't the greatest choice if there's any color on the page. I've mainly scanned small 20 page documents, but I just started working on a couple POH's for my planes. Should be fun to find out how much space these 1,000 page manuals take up. Overall though, great job on app, would recommend 👍🏻.
Amazing
by Glendon Crawford on 2018/12/02 19:20
It was a cozy winter morning at the Crawford house. And grandma was visiting to help make cookies and whatnot. Grandma was using her new iPhone and was asking about its features as she boldly took steps into the Apple world. She explained that she wanted to know if it would print to her fax machine. “Fax machines, are a thing of the past grandma.” I said, hoping to irritate her. But grandma being older and much wiser said “Oh? tell me dear grandson.” So I had her draw a picture. Used this app to scan it and then instantly printed the document from the computer behind me. All from my phone. Like magic, I had created her picture from thin air. Grandma no longer needs a fax machine. Thanks fellas!
Best scanner on the market!!
by Laniepi on 2020/06/09 04:20
I am a math teacher & have been using scanning apps for years to scan & share things like handwritten solutions. I would not have been able to make it through teaching online during the COVID-19 quarantine without this incredibly intuitive & easy to use app. We tested a few apps, but frankly, this was the only scanner app all of my students could figure out how to use. It holds all of my documents - and I have A LOT of documents. Before COVID-19, I was using a different scanner app. I switched to Adobe Scan exclusively and this will be the ONLY scanner app recommend/require for my students!
Works perfectly!
by Workingfromhome349 on 2017/09/13 18:12
This app is fantastic. I frequently have to scan documents/pages of notes into PDF format and e-mail them for work, which I usually wait to do at the office since I have access to the scanner there. However when I'm working from home it's trickier since I don't have a scanner here- enter this app to solve all my problems! I am so impressed with the quality of the scans- some apps produce grainy/blurry images that are clearly taken using a phone camera. I honestly can't tell the difference between documents I've scanned at the office vs. at home using this app. Highly, highly recommend!
Great tho not perfect
by Sol Goode on 2019/07/08 04:10
Great app. Ive digized several hard to find books and archival items and the app does a great job cropping the photos and capturing information that is already old and a little degraded. I really only have 2 complaints about this program: 1) it doesn’t remind you WHILE you’re scanning that it can only perform text recognition on scans of 25 pages or less. It waits until you’ve scanned everything and are about to save it as a pdf to remind you. 2) rearranging docs after you’ve done all your scanning can be really difficult because of the small thumbnail images.

Great Scan App

Great Scanning App
by Kub0224 on 2020/10/29 17:15
I have been using Adobe scan for 3 years now and use it for both work and personal use. It does a great job scanning documents with minimum if any cropping needed after the scan. Plus you get free cloud storage so you can easily access your scans in Adobe Acrobat. Highly recommend.
Easy to use
by Fish Family on 2020/10/29 15:16
Easy to use app with an easy to use interface. It does a good job finding page edges.
Good but limited or something wrong
by jenofmarin on 2020/10/29 13:56
I do like the app it has come in very handy. I haven’t even promoted the app however I spent a lot of time scanning documents last night that would not upload I figured it was because of Wi-Fi or something. And now I go back in and the drafts have just dropped away and now I’m going to spend a lot of time rescan and everyone of those documents page by page it was a lot so maybe that was the problem it would be nice if there was more of a Q&A than the forum because the form goes off on strange tangents that seem not related to the app. if there’s anybody out there who has information regarding technical support or why the app might be kicking documents off,I am using V iPhone 11 with maximum storage capacities. Is there reason Ap is not allowing a person to save PDF maybe after a certain threshold has been met? My business is paying for the monthly fee.

It scans properly and gives a variety of how you want your PDF, but it also scans anything that is through see-through glass or windows. So make sure to scan immediately or do multiple scans and merge them as 1 file.
Excelente!

by Rossco234 on 2020/10/27 21:12
I use this app all the time as a scanner for important docs and even some that aren’t so important because it’s so easy to use. It’s better than just taking a picture because I’m able to name the file so I can just search for it later. Originally I was I little frustrated that it wasn’t so easy to move the file into specific folders for later reference, but I’ve found that you don’t need to add long as you come up with a good naming convention and just search. The docs are all stored on the cloud too so you can easily get to them from your PC.

I love the app and how is it is to use. Especially since it will allow you to scan on the go and put the documents in the cloud for storage. Also if I scan something while I’m out of the office and uploaded to the cloud someone in the office can get the document from the cloud.
Love This App
by RMS060418 on 2020/10/27 13:01
I have been using this app for some time now and find it does an excellent job for my home use. The scanner is easy to use even for a nontechnical person like myself. Once you use it a few times it’s really easy. Great app..

A derby skin app is unbelievably easy to use even for someone who doesn’t know much about phones or computers. You can easily just scan the document rename it and then share it to your drive an email etc. what’s nice about this outside just taking a photo of the document is if you have more than one and you scan all of them it’s one document flowing nicely not 10 different pictures and especially whenApplying for jobs and stuff they want everything and PDF file not JPEG and this app allows you to save your documents in either form. Great Job Adobe!

Printing from scan would be nice
by Mark Verizon customer on 2020/10/26 03:21
It’s a nice app for the iPhone and iPad. But it would be nice if one could print right from the scan, instead of having to go a pdf and then print. And make it easier for one to do just one page scan, instead of having it automatically charge into scanning the second and following pages. And allow renaming sooner, as the date of scan is rarely a descriptive file name for my work.

Handy & Efficient
by KerlyK on 2020/10/21 23:45
This app has been such a help when I need to send important documents, such as during mortgage refinance. It is easy to use. It doesn't matter much if you cant get the photo perfectly "squared," because it lets you adjust the document borders. If the photo doesnt turn out as you wish, you can retake it before it becomes set. There are other adjustments & fixes you can make, but they are probably described in the app store.

Intelligent. User friendly. High quality scans. No messy borders
by knorox on 2020/10/20 20:54
I tried 5 top rated scanning apps. Adobe’s app is the best one. - The interface is suuper automatic, great for multi page documents. - The post processing is impressively intelligent - way ahead of Cam scanner or Office lens - My scans don’t have messy edges with frustrated me with all the other apps. Very pleased with Adobe. 5 stars well deserved.
Works as described
by LuvnGrannie on 2020/10/20 19:02
This apps works as described. App was easy to learn and navigate. I didn’t give it 5 stars because as I started to get comfortable I suddenly realized everything was being stored in the Cloud & not on my device and that was the only option. Call me paranoid but I don’t store anything in the Cloud zip nada never nothing. I deleted all of the scans as they had personal information and deleted the app. If I had a choice of saving to a flash drive or my device so I could transfer to a flash drive I would have continued scanning and given 5 stars. For those who are comfortable with The Cloud you will very much like this app.

Reliable -replaces document scanner if you have few documents
by ercamel on 2020/10/19 17:30
Years ago I used a document scanner to reduce thousands of pieces of paper to readable pdf’s. It’s no longer supported software-wise, and I now only have to scan current documents. I decided to try this rather than buying a new scanner. So far, so good. It takes a few practice runs to get the hang of Adobe Scan, but it produces clear readable pdf’s.

by T-town Marco on 2020/10/16 15:29
With my Adobe Cloud account, this app enables me to PDF and store anything in or away from the office. I use it as much as nearly any other app. Would use it a lot without cloud storage too.
Adobe is great
by Poppa93 on 2020/10/15 23:40
I have to say Adobe does everything to help in my business. Thank you Adobe

Convenient & easy to use!

How convenient to have a scanner on my phone that takes high quality images of documents I need to send! It’s easy to use, too. Thank you!
Good idea for an app and useful

Can’t use without access to Adobe Document Cloud or whatever garbage platform (read: cage) they try to lock users into. Not worth a single star.

This app is really excellent. It simply works well.
Where do scans get saved?
by Alan2065 on 2020/10/13 14:24
Like so many apps for iPad or Mac I can’t tell where the scan gets saved.
can't login
by aminur rashid on 2020/10/13 05:42
I've opened account in adobe using Google login, but in this app there is no such option shown for login. So can't login and can't use the app
Disappointed
by AppleUser123abc on 2020/10/13 04:16
First thing this app does is require you to create an account. They lost me as a user right there. No, I'm not signing in with Facebook etc and giving Adobe access to my social media information. There should be no need to create an account or sign in to just scan pages and create a pdf file out of them. Second, it appears that you can only access the pdfs from Adobe's cloud. No thanks. I don't want my documents stored in your cloud. I want a pdf that I can email or transfer to another device without going through Adobe cloud.
A must have app
by Living large in Florida on 2020/10/13 02:16
I find myself using this several times a week. I scan business cards, even menus at restaurants. This thing is so handy, I don’t know what I did without it.
Great tool

Horrible App, bad for Business
by RozeSnow on 2020/10/12 05:18
Tried this app as a traveler needing to scan receipts for my expenses. This app is horrible. Half the time you just get blank pages instead of the pictures you tried to take of the receipts. Horribly unstable app. I’m not sure if this is Adobe’s fault or Apple’s. Either way, try a different solution for your pdf needs.
Adobe Scan!
by GtS Iz The Best2020 on 2020/10/11 03:08
It’s so awesome
Shocked and Awed!!!! Excellent tool!
by CrossFire Legal Docs. on 2018/04/17 06:07
Incredibly handy, effective, and helpful. Take a moment how to learn how to use this app/software, and you won’t be disappointed. I’m not even super techy and it wasn’t hard to operate. I really could go on and on, but give it a try and you’ll definitely see yourself, especially if you’re a regular desktop to PC scanner. Ahhhhhmazing! If you don’t have access to a desktop scanner, or can’t get yours up and running, or on the go and can’t get to one and need to scan something, this is hands down one handy app. For personal or business use, it’s going to deliver. With this app on the go, you could literally work from the tailgate of your truck if you had to. It’s actually so cool and easy, it makes you want to scan stuff that you’d normally not, or put off. If you can hold your tablet or phone steady for pictures, then you can scan with this. Not to mention all the extra tools and features. As always, through the decades of use, Adobe continues to deliver and stay up on top of the technology game.
Great for anyone who wants to get paper to digital with as all Adobe tools.
by denniscd on 2018/01/18 02:51
The software is free, more intricate than it may seem, easy to use, and is backed by the comittment of Adobe, Inc. Product continues to improve, and combined with Acrobat or other Adobe iPad Pro apps, just about as good for someone who preserves, categorizes, presents, and shares documents after easy editing and repesoitory in the Creative or Document clouds. In the end, its user choice, with some good alternatives, but this has long term potential and integration is important for ease of use and quality control. I always return to Adobe Scan after trying everything else new. The developers I believe, will maintain their pride in applying knowledge from so many areas within Adobe, that it will become a “Professional” Standard in not too long. Enjoy watching techology change at an accelerating pace. We are envisioning capabilities as though they will come to fuition in a year, but what we can only imagine now, is already very likely a reaity in the making all around us. Thanks Adobe. DDoherty
Office on the Run, in the Car, in Court or Anywhere!
by FoojyPod on 2019/09/15 19:21
I work outside my physical office many days of the week and find this has been an awesome tool that I can use anywhere to document transactions, take pictures of signed documents, checks that I write, letters that I receive, or simply anything at all that I want to document for later records or proof of events. I can photograph flat objects like documents, any kind of paper, even 3-D items I want to remember. I can photograph people and/or places and just click the button and I have a PDF record of the transaction, the person(s), the place where something happened or even a scenic shot.i can access the PDF documents from the cloud wherever I am, and using Adobe Professional Version add text, images, diagrams, notes or even other images and then easily distribute by email to friends, family or colleagues. Makes the job of documenting business or pleasure a breeze! I highly recommend it for anyone who works in the field, out of the office, or from a home office.
Excellent for scanning and sending documents on a tight schedule
by Debutante2013 on 2017/12/26 21:25
From having used this app for a little while now, I have found it helpful and convenient for scanning and sending documents on the go. The app is very easy to use, and allows you to send files through most apps that one would need to access pdf files through (ex: gmail, google drive, yahoo mail, Evernote, and so forth). I really appreciate how it allows me to save the pdf files within the app, so that I can access them at anytime. Thus far, I have had no problems emailing the pdf files through my gmail app, and saving them to google drive. The app scans very well, allowing the documents to come out clear, bright, and easy to read. I have also found that it works well with faxing apps, allowing me to be able to fax documents on the go with ease. Highly recommend for those who are working, college students, and anyone who does not have time to scan and send documents via a printer. You will not be disappointed!
Edge-finding and focussing (spelling intentional) capability less than perfect
by Vanessa123456780 on 2019/07/22 00:19
I chose to ignore Adobe’s prompting that I upgrade to AdobeScan from the scanning feature included with the Adobe PDF app for a while, because when I’d tried it, it had “grabbed” the document it was supposed to scan as if on some sort of fast-forward setting and estimated the location of the document’s edges incorrectly. It also didn’t take enough time to get a properly-focussed (spelling intentional) image. I’d realized that I needed to figure out how to perform the scan manually, in order to get it precise enough, or find another scanning app. During a later attempt, I was relieved when I was prompted to disable the psychotic-seeming autoscan setting — imagine a coworker coming to your desk and frantically dishevelling a neat pile of paper documents sitting on it while you watch — which I’d never chosen to activate to begin with. With that setting shut off, however, the app still doesn’t “find” the document’s edges as precisely as I’d like. It gives you the option of adjusting its placement of them yourself; however, I preferred the scanning feature of the Adobe PDF app to this separate, supposedly-superior Adobe Scan app.
Amazing AND Free?!?!
by NvrDoRvws on 2020/08/04 21:29
I hate writing reviews, but when I get an app that is free and does exactly what I was expecting (with no ads btw), I feel compelled to write a good review since they aren’t making any money off from me. It was simple, easy to use, and had more features than I was expecting. It allows seamlessly easy photo taking of any document/business card/etc., and allows you to crop it how you would like it, or has an auto feature that works wonders. I messed up on some paperwork I needed to fill out, so I tried for an hour to find a scanner that would allow me to upload the image into a pdf file, and allow me to ‘clean’ up the document so I could refill out properly. It did exactly that with no stinking ads constantly popping up, and without any pop-ups that ask you to do a free trial or to sign up for $X money. I’m very impressed by the simplicity this app gives me, and hope this review helps others looking for the same thing I was about an hour ago, lol.
Adobe knows how to do it right
by Alessandra H. on 2019/01/20 21:43
Adobe Scan is by far the best mobile scanning app I’ve ever tried. Downloading and having this app on your phone essentially negates the need for you to own a traditional scanner in my opinion. The first time I tried the Adobe Scan app, I was genuinely astonished with how well the papers I scanned turned out. I’ve tried so many other “scanner” apps listed in the App Store, but every one has either been completely, or came with a catch that outweighed the apps value in my opinion, so when I found Adobe Scan, I was stoked! I definitely recommend at least trying Adobe Scan out. Now, of course if you need a higher than normal scanner for higher resolution, sharper scans, then of course an app isn’t going to be of help, but for a normal, everyday person—Adobe Scan is perfect, and believe it or not, but it’s actually pretty surprisingly handy to have a scanner in your pocket at all times too!
The best
by Enough to know better on 2020/08/08 18:39
This is the best scanning app out there. It will auto scan each page for you but you can still edit each corner of the page manually. And because the brilliant when you pick a corner to edit it zooms into that corner in a little bubble outside of where your son is so that you can actually see what it is you’re doing. You can edit each page by caller you can erase certain portions of it you can draw on the pages you can email a link of the PDF to someone you can email an actual PDF to someone. You can export the PDF as JPEG files. There’s nothing that this app can’t do. You can re-order the pages if you scanned them in the wrong order. You can come back to the same file later and add pages and edited at any time. If there’s a better app out there then I have not seen it because I don’t think it exists. I am a teacher and this has saved me countless hours.
Adobe Scan is a Winner!
by Yogi Angeles on 2018/09/21 23:24
This is one of my favorite apps I use to save any document or receipt I want to have on hand and available to refer to in the future. I have tried several different scanning apps and Adobe Scan is by far the best scanning app available. My documents, receipts, photos, etc. come out perfect every time! Adobe really goes above and beyond when it comes to making their apps user friendly while also providing as many options as possible for the customer’s convenience. This is why this app is my “go to” when I need to scan in snd preserve a document, receipt, etc. I am never disappointed with the final product. Thank you for taking the time to think of the customer and going that extra mile when developing the apps you have available on the market so far. I will continue to look for Adobe products first for all of my project needs!
Simple and brilliant
by OldFolkster on 2018/06/05 23:49
I had just about given up trying to find a “free” scanner that would actually work and was actually free. I had tried so many others that would fail in one way or another. One was so fussy about recording an image that it was almost impossible to make a scan. It kept telling me to move closer even though the page already filled the screen; then it told me to hold still, and refused to take the picture. Another managed to make an image but then refused to let me do anything with it until I “upgraded to pro.” Finally, I discovered the Adobe scanner. What a difference! Producing a clear image was fast and easy. I made a series of scans of the first page, and found that I could leaf through them quickly, deleting all but the best. Then sending off the resulting scan by email was a snap. This app kills the competition; it isn’t even close.
Use of Adobe
by Ellie-May77 on 2020/08/06 13:29
I have only been able to use Adobe for a few days but I have found it to be extremely useful and I love how fast it helps me with information about a photo when I only have to ask Adobe to give me the information about that photo. I can tell when I get more familiar with using Adobe it will benefit me more and more. Thank you! Kristy Keller I really don’t know how to use the Adobe to my advantage. I’m afraid of loosing valuable information. Like making sure I am able to get organized and remember where i put it. I need to Adobe scan my passport, drivers license, social security, Birth certificate, Notary, voters registration, concealed weapons permit, organ donation, power of attorney and keep them in an organized way. That’s because I’m not good with being a secretary. I know this is going to make my life so much easer when I get it. My health records and dated how awesome. Thanks Kristy Keller
Love this app!
by hfjsidje on 2019/01/26 18:16
Being a business person on the go, I’m not always near a copier or printer to be able to scan documents. This app has been life saving. I also try to upload everything into cloud based storage systems and drives for clients so the ability to take a picture, have it converted into a .pdf for less storage space is a Godsend. I now use it daily and love how I cannot only upload to where I want it to go but I can also email and text the docs immediately. Quality is as good as the camera on your phone. It will pick up colors although the letting the app choose the parameters of what you want on the document can be frustrating if there are lines that separate sections. But that is very minor and can be fixed by just moving the phone closer or farther away. I even have other colleagues using this app now because of the convenience.
High Image Quality and Easy to Use
by fellowhuman on 2020/04/18 23:58
Apple Notes’ scanning function is nearly as good but Adobe seemed to produce slightly clearer documents when zoomed in (may be completely negligible and may increase file size) and seemed to more consistently automatically capture page borders such that I found it rare to need to adjust. One drawback for me is that all documents are automatically uploaded to Adobe’s cloud. I didn’t test any other features being that I have simply been wanted to scan black and white documents as efficiently as possible with sufficiently high quality. I have also used JotNot, which has enhancing functions that seem to work well but there is some scan limit with the free version of the app and the high quality of Apple Notes’ and Adobe Scan seems to make those more advanced functions unnecessary for my purposes.
Adobe Scan review
by Vivitude1 on 2018/11/08 08:03
Too soon to tell. The program keeps shutting down while scanning. I don’t yet know if the OCR function works, nor have I had time to figure out how to turn off auto scan. I’ll have a better idea once I’ve had a chance to use this app for more than 10 min or have just scanned only 5 pages. I would have waited to comment except an annoying pop-up showed up on the screen asking me to review the app right in the middle of when I was trying to save a pdf, so if my document wasn’t saved, I’ll feel even more annoyed than I was with this app only 10 mins ago. If I may make a suggestion it would be to please wait a little while longer to ask for a review and figure out a way to do it during a moment when there isn’t any scanning saving activity going on. Most people don’t want to stop and review an app when they’re in the middle of using it, especially apps that replace often used office machinery and tasky work like activities. Thx.
Adobe rocks!
by blue becky on 2018/08/07 19:00
This app really saved me big time! I’m impressed with how easy it is to use.. I was in a hurry so I didn’t even look to see if it has a tutorial! I am the process of trying to get my son enrolled in school where there is serious competition.. so little things like an unreadable, blurry or cut off document can mean you lose your spot.. this happened to me and if I hadn’t found this appt Adobe so that I could quickly scan and upload the content...it was a legal sized document, so trying to take a picture was almost impossible! I have an iPhone 6, it took about 3 minutes to download and open , and another two for me to figure it out and get both pages flawless and emailed out to the school! 5 minutes!!!! M so thankful as we would have lost our place of I’d had to go out and find somewhere to help. So thank adobe!!!
A very useful app !
by Seanpaulcurran on 2018/08/17 04:48
Up front, I’m giving this app four stars only because the scan process is not as streamlined as I would like it to be (the scan can be a little frustrating when it does not get the entire page). OTHER THAN THAT. This is a useful technology that is highly efficient in creating PDF documents that used to take one scan per page on a slow printer. So I’m very happy that I found this app and I do highly recommend it. I used this app with a 12 page medical document today, I am really happy that I didn’t have to scan twelve pages; one by one on a traditional scanner. It cut my documentation time down by about twenty minutes !. I got this done in 10 minutes with the app!. Adobe could improve on the apps process of “hover” technology in which sometimes the app takes a photo too soon and results in a cut off doc photo. After a few delete / re shoot - I got it done.
No more half finished notebooks and scraps of paper!
by Overstimulated on 2019/10/06 18:10
I journal a lot, and make plans and lists for what I want to do with my life. Unfortunately I do this with any spare notebook or piece of paper and so then I have a hard time throwing things away because they feel like important documentation of major turning points in my life. I like rediscovering them to see how far I’ve come, but they left my place cluttered. I’ve never had such an easy practical way of securely archiving all these various scraps. The pics with my phone are shockingly clear and the apt makes it easy to control the edges and make multi-page documents so it’s easy for me to make collections of writings and pictures. Reading my hand-written scrawl in odd form is actually easy and enjoyable. Thank you for making it easy to de clutter while still hanging on to every memory!
actual scanning is great but bugs remain
by sbma44 on 2020/01/01 15:12
I couldn’t get any scans to save when I first installed this despite closing the app, reauthing—all sorts of stuff. Now, weeks later, it works fine. Maybe it needed a phone restart? Who knows. The other major bug is that it appears to not have a notion of folder hierarchy in Google Drive beyond one level. Hard to say if this is Adobe’s fault or Apple’s, because Drive integration appears to only be available via the iOS “share” menu. It’d be nice to have new docs sent to a preferred cloud provider automatically rather than just Adobe’s—the share workflow is clunky—but perhaps this is best filed under “don’t hate the player, hate the game”. Otherwise this app does a nice job of border detection, OCRing and sane defaults for leveling colors etc. No watermarks in the free edition! And the upsells seem to be for other adobe apps, not for features. In this respect it compares favorably to CamScanner (though the capture process is perhaps a bit slower).
I’m Impressed!
by Lady.CF on 2017/11/30 18:42
I had to scan and send a copy of my lease to a company within two days of downloading this app and surprisingly, it worked perfectly! Quick, intuitive, and straightforward. Most importantly, the final version of the scanned document looked legit, as if scanned with a large, high-end machine. Very, very impressed, as I was concerned the final PDF would look wonky or have skewed alignment. Not the case at all. My only feedback for improvement would be for Adobe to combine this app with the main Adobe app as well as with the Fill & Sign App. Storage on my phone isn’t an issue but having one app that does three major tasks would be the most ideal scenario. Either way, this app works well for what it advertises. I hope the quality is maintained. For now and after using it with excellent results, 5-stars.
Really great app
by Hope_ut on 2019/05/20 19:59
This app is making my life much easier. When I need to scan at school with a ‘real’ scanner, I usually have to walk down the hall, and if something is bound or stapled I have to lay down each page, and it gets confused on the size, etc, so when I walk back down to my desk I see it screwed up, the density is all wrong, etc. With this app, I can take pictures of each document at my desk quickly and crop to the size I like (which doesn’t have to be 8.5 x 11... although I wonder if there is a way to force the aspect/ratio if needed; I’ll have to look into that!). It is super easy, and then I can either email it to myself or go to the document cloud online. You can rename the files in the app too, something you can’t do easily on a giant scanner! I love it.
GREAT APP!
by Shaybozbo on 2019/10/10 12:28
I normally don’t write reviews for apps for this app is so good that I had to! This is definitely one of the best apps for school! I homeschool so I lose a lot of my work or I had something in that I end up needing but with this app I have al of my work right in my phone. At first I thought it would be the same as taking a photo in your camera app then putting it into an album but it’s totally different. You just take a picture and the app finds the border of the paper that your taking a picture of. So now you have just the paper and nothing in the background. You can also put photos in to albums. I also love that it keeps the photos in the app and doesn't add the pictures to your camera roll. I have not complaints about this app and I definitely recommend it!
Super Awesome!
by BritBrat1212$ on 2020/10/03 23:20
The Adobe Scan app was one of the best mobile app scanners that also included its own cloud storage, without having to also fill your photos with pics as well. NOW IT IS DEFINITELY THE BEST MOBILE APP SCANNER!!! And when you use the trio, which includes Adobe PDF Reader and Adobe Fill and Sign, YOU ARE READY TO LITERALLY EXECUTE ANY FUNCTION OF BUSINESS AS IF YOU WERE ACTUALLY SITTING IN YOUR OFFICE AT HOME OR WORK.(when you can be sitting on a beach or even at a ballgame!) I love the new features Adobe Scan has added to truly your scanned document, and all while still remaining a free app. Of course, you can upgrade Adobe PDF reader and it has some key perks to the upgrade, BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TOO! The Adobe apps are great. Subsequently, the Adobe line-up has played a key role regarding my entrepreneurial “wins” and work/life balance.
Another solid Adobe product
by NEKEagle on 2019/02/28 23:51
As a former IT and DP guy, I've had loads of experience, from the early 90's till now, with Adobe products. These days, happily enjoying early retirement, I'm only a basic user but from my deep well of experience and more current use of this product (and other Adobe handheld device oriented apps), I can say that this is 100% a top notch product. Everything works seemlessly, from doc capture to editing to reediting to sending, the process is almost stupid simple! And she doesn't skimp on features. Even for a basic user I can access much of whatever I need to. As a premium user, I have no doubt that this app would easily crush any competitors offerings and, more importantly, deliver the most professional quality your demanding.
Another Indispensable PDF App
by platojet on 2019/03/17 21:02
I love working in PDF. A huge part of my workflow is done in PDF format. For a long time, I stubbornly refused to buy a scanning app because I believed the quality wouldn’t match the quality of PDF from a desktop scanner - contempt prior to investigation. This app scans box top serial numbers, product keys, email, etc., from your camera into PDF. They’ve built in some very smart processing that converts your photos into high quality, readable PDF. I was wrong about the lack of quality vs desktop scanners. While it’s true that not 100% of my Adobe Scan files are “desktop scanner” quality, I have a very high standard for readable documentation and I’m impressed with the quality of the PDF generated by Adobe Scan and the app’s versatility. There’s very cool function that allows Adobe Scan to find potential PDF from your photo collection, (eg receipts, serial numbers, etc.). Nice! I know the serious privacy people won’t like that. I respect that. I like that time saving feature tho. I’m very satisfied with Adobe Scan. If you’re a power PDF user - you know who you are - you’ll be happy with this app.
Document size
by Mammothx on 2020/05/03 23:41
Works great with a two exceptions: 1. When cropping/setting corners, I can set the crop corner perfectly but as soon as I release my finger the corner shifts and I have to redo it. It takes several attempts to get it where I want it. iPhone 8. It’s almost like I need a stylus to use this app. 2. There’s no option for setting the finished document size. So I can “scan” multiple pages of an 8.5”x11” document and crop nearly perfectly, but each page will end up different sizes entirely (often times much smaller than Letter size). This is frustrating when printing. The best print from PDF setting is Actual Size (Fit to Page is garbage), but if anyone prints actual size the document will print much smaller than original size and each page will be a different size. Basically, the result is an unprofessional PDF.
The free part does more or less what it says
by CRSlack on 2017/12/02 18:26
Do you think that you will be able to import a pdf (scanned) and turn it in to a pdf with searchable text? No. (Or if so it’s not at all clear how to import anything except a photo from your photo library). Do you think that you will be able to extract a text file from your scan? No. But if you can you are pretty clever. What you can do is take pictures of your document, import them in to Adobe Scan, reorder the pages and save the combined pages as an Adobe pdf with searchable text. You can export the pdf file as a pdf and e-mail it. It does that pretty well and deserves a good rating for that. What about the subscription? It is very expensive and Adobe doesn’t really say what you will get. You have to pay to find out or perhaps you will need to do a lot of web based research. One of their blog posts talks about the beauty of the free service and its unlimited usability. Frankly some of us don’t have the time or need to use it with no restriction. We would rather have more functionality with volume limits. I would be willing to pay some amount ($2 mo) for no more than 50 pages per month. But that is my use case.
Ughh what a pain
by 0v0z~ on 2018/03/26 16:21
I have used Adobe Acrobat to scan and send documents with no issues until I had to download and install Adobe Scan. You have to set up an account to use the app; once you begin using the app it will take the picture before you have time to situate or align the document the way you are satisfied. It also stores your documents in a different ‘Local’ than Adobe Acrobat even though you opened Adobe Acrobat to make the scan. If you try to open a document created with Adobe Scan in Adobe Acrobat it gives you an error then shows it is in the cloud. Maybe it me learning a new app but don’t make me download something new when the other was working for me.
Love it!!
by Bugbug 1919 on 2018/03/27 00:25
So I am going through the home buying process and I need to send multiple documents to my lender. I have a printer that prints but it doesn’t scan because of a missing cord. Anyhow, I usually would rather send everything through a PDF file because I work 8-5 Monday through Friday and it’s bad traffic around 5. With this app, I print what I need, snap a picture and it will correct the brightness, look, rotate it, EVERYTHING - so it looks like I scanned it! It has made my life so much easier, I recommend it anyone and everyone that needs the convenience of just snapping a picture to send documents.

Adobe Scan
by Alife2BLived on 2019/06/16 17:33
The Adobe Scan app is pretty basic in terms of features. I downloaded and installed it as an easy way to manage all of the business cards I come across in my travels. I rate the app two stars because if you have a number of business cards you want to store, when you open the app and select business cards, then proceed with capturing the numerous biz cards you might have, the app stores them all in one continuous stream automatically or all in one document (pdf), rather than store each biz card as its own document (pdf). To do it any other way, you have to snap each card and manually convert it to a document or pdf. Each snap of the camera should assume -especially with biz cards, that it’s two sides or pages maximum and do the conversion at the end of the second side or page rather than the default be a continuous document.
Love Adobe Scan.

I have used Genius Scan, Scanner Pro, then for a second PDFfiller Scanner(which was horrible. Bad scans, never found the borders, unusable.) Then the heavens parted and a bright light shown down and there it was Adobe Scan. It’s fast, easy, takes great scans, and it has so many features that I haven’t even tried yet. My favorite part about it is how easy it is because it is so intuitive. It finds the borders automatically and takes the scan for you, then it crops it and adjusts the brightness and the color for you before you even open it. You can readjust if you don’t like it, but every time the scan has been perfect. Best scanner I’ve ever used and.....IT’S FREE!!! Ahhhhhhleluiah!
Amazing App
by TheRizviConciliaore on 2018/05/25 13:04
It’s almost as if it’s going to do a fast scan of documents you have before you! Yesterday I was at the law library and can say I scanned over 250 pages of law procedure and both statutory and case precedence when it comes to filing appeals via an extraordinary writ on a criminal law matter, and how to file and what to file on child custody matters, two things that are what I am spending a great deal of my “free time” doing these days! This app as been invaluable in helping me organize evidence such as receipts, and in having both case law and how to on family law law and motion procedure. I am grateful for this app and I highly recommend you use it to get paperwork and clutter once and for all put away for good
Incredible quality scans, free to use, faster than using my printer/scanner
by kceltik on 2019/11/10 13:40
See above. No but honestly, this is one of those apps that I use only a few times a year but when I use it I always think, “that was SO easy.” Many adobe products are cost money to use even for the occasional user or require expensive upgrades in order to get full functionality. This app it’s not the case. Quickly snaps multi page document into PDF then let’s you clean them up, reorganize and edit your scans using intuitive tools to make it look as good or better than what you get from a traditional scanner machine. I never leave reviews for apps, ever. This app deserves it.
Adobe scan is everything is exactly why I love Adobe products!!
by Firseler@7se on 2018/07/10 17:56
I highly recommend DEBBIE scan, you will be very pleased to see how well their technology works in scanning documentation by using your camera that comes out literally better than using my normal scanner on my computer which takes hours skinny one document at a time, wasting at least 30 seconds for each page Just to scan each page and it can take up to 15 minutes to half an hour to include an entire document. This can take you three minutes or less and you’re done and now have a perfect PDF file. Try it and you will never go back to the old-school ways
Business and life made easy
by 23essentialoils.com/ on 2019/05/08 19:10
* facts at bottom* I have suddenly become a rental owner and manager when I picked up the business after my husband was no longer able to continue. I needed help and something to make the business make sense and get organized. I scan it, share, email to my business (or personal) email, save in google drive from there (so it’s saved in two places) I now use it to take pictures of my kids art, my grocery budgeting, of course all of my bills and I’m about to start saving all my years of journaling! Yikes that’s a lot! I take notes at my church and have kept them saved even though I never read them again, because of this app I no longer have to waste that space but I can still have the notes that change my life! * quick - I take a picture of every receipt and email it to my google docs while standing in line. * easy - I am a bit of a ditzy blond without the blonde. I can do this. Anyone can. * operational - it connects to everything I need it to. - email - docs - adobe reader - printing - I’m sure tons more
Adobe Cloud Privacy Problem
by Max the Mike on 2018/06/23 15:35
I got Adobe Scan. But, it is not a stand alone app. Scans are not stored on a device, e.g. iPhone, but in Adobe Cloud. After cloud storage, individual files maybe downloaded back to a device by the copy/paste function. This can be very time consuming without an in mass option. Further, there is a problem with confidentiality and privacy given a nondisclosure agreement for scanned information. Further, the app assumes cloud access by any mode of connectivity to Adobe Cloud via the Internet, which is not everywhere & always available anytime regardless the cost. This amounts to loss of control of ones information that results in lost empowerment. Thus, the whole purpose of a device, e.g. iPhone is defeated or lost. It maybe that I do not know Adobe has solved these problems. Lastly, the paramount issues the app raises are about information availability, legality, safety, & security. Sincerely, M A
Excellent App! However...
by S&J on 2020/09/21 22:21
Great app that allows you to take multiple photos of documents and pages and turn them into pdf documents. The app automatically finds the borders, which you can adjust on the fly and takes the photo. Tons of editing/tuning options. -1 star for not being able to set some additional preferences/defaults. The app always defaults to “Auto Color” which is not very good and doesn’t look natural. I always have to change it to “Original Color”. Even though there is an option to “apply to all pages” it doesn’t seem to work and I have to do it for each page. Other than that, solid app to use for submitting those distance learning assignments and other items.
no-nonsense, and handy (:
by madi101112 on 2020/05/11 21:29
I never write reviews but as I was closing this app after using it for the millionth time, I figured it’s the least I could do for a free app that’s saved me a lot of time and effort! I’m a broke 20-something lol so I used to have to go out of my way to the local library anytime I wanted to scan something. (annoying) 🙄 This app is free, so if you need a quick scan/pdf converter, it’s a great app for that! (: Just take a picture, crop the borders, and you can choose a way to send the pdf to yourself. I think you can pay for some extra services too. They’re not pushy about it which is nice, but I believe there is extra stuff if you need it!
Awesome
by BabsDJr5 on 2019/01/28 09:29
This app is great scan for using while on your phone. You can scan pages that are if importance and make notes and you can have them accessible at your fingertips. All in one you can share items you scanned with others in seconds flat. Great from those who are multi tasjwrs or that are in book clubs you can scan & put notes once you open up in Adobe reader which has a button on scan so all you have to do is hit and it open up the Adobe reader (as long as you have instslled$ a mbvms f then highlight and make note you came open up when book vlunmeets and you done have to carry whole book with you. 5 + ⭐️ from me.
Adobe equals AWESOME
by RinAthens on 2020/08/19 10:28
All things adobe apps are “top shelf” compared to every other PDF/DOC editor, Hands down!! It’s inexpensive, easy to use, and surprisingly useful in ways I didn’t think were included...let alone So affordable! Even the free versions go a long way, most people don’t even need to pay the small fee if it’s just the basics want. I just hope they find adobe first before downloading various other apps with a wide range in random subscription costs before it’s too late. I’ll probably never switch now after all that time paying for poopy apps, it’s not a fun experience Thank you! You’ve made one person very happy. That’s always a ting plus
Highly recommended
by wjthornberry on 2019/12/06 22:28
I recommend giving this app a shot. I’d been using another mobile PDF scanner app for years called Genius Scan. It did the trick okay, but it wasn’t great at automatically determining the size and proportions of the document I was trying to scan. Plus, to get much of the useful features (exporting to any other app like Google Drive, Evernote, etc) you have to pay to upgrade. I was happy enough with it, but didn’t know what I was missing until I came across Adobe Scan by chance a few weeks ago. It’s been great! The UI/UX is sharp and very usable. It auto scans much more quickly and effectively and is much more of a joy to use.
Software is now broken
by -bp on 2019/05/30 04:59
Adobe updated this scanning program and removed the main feature that I used to use it for. The program used to automatically adjust a scanned document straightening edges if you scanned at an angle and automatically cropped the document. I wished I never updated this program because it is now useless. Adobe got back to me to fix the issue. I needed to turn on the auto mode and change the option to not adjust the borders after every Scan. I wish that they didn’t change the location of the shutter button because it is awkward when scanning a portrait document. Thanks Adobe.
Adobe Scan - initial review
by JMS Los Gatos on 2018/06/27 22:40
I have moved from Scannable which was integrated with Evernote, on to OneNote and it’s related App, Office Lens, because I like OneNote so much more than Evernote. However, I find Office Lens does not produce the best results from difficulty identifying documents, to out of focus situations, to missing or incorrect capture of business card information in my iPhone Contacts. In an initial test, I found Adobe Scan did a great job of capturing notes from my Moleskine notebook and enabling me to copy them into OneNote. The experience was better than using Office Lens. I do this in situations where I cannot type notes directly into OneNote. For now, I will continue to use Adobe Scan.
When I say THEE BEST, I mean it
by Sheep-stalker on 2018/03/14 20:59
I can’t tell you how many other scanners and pdf apps I’ve searched for, downloaded, disliked, and deleted, but, trust me, there have been A LOT of them. This app is not only like-able (can’t say the same for ANY of the others I’ve tried), but its phenomenally easy to understand, user friendly, and all encompassing in what you would want and expect in this app. ALL WITHOUT ADDS!! Seriously, the free to use features on this app is fantastic in-and-of-itself; get that, it’s great. But I, myself would never want to pay for in-app purchases on any other scanner or pdf app other than this one, because I say, any other app is NOT worth your time.
Adobe Scan
by Sean M W on 2017/09/30 08:37
App has been working pretty well so far. Auto capture/focus is a convenient feature but sometimes captures image so fast you don't have time to get the entire document under the camera before it snaps a picture. I've found that using the "original photo" yields better results if under any light, other options will make parts of page super white so reading would be tough, and greyscale isn't the greatest choice if there's any color on the page. I've mainly scanned small 20 page documents, but I just started working on a couple POH's for my planes. Should be fun to find out how much space these 1,000 page manuals take up. Overall though, great job on app, would recommend 👍🏻.
Amazing
by Glendon Crawford on 2018/12/02 19:20
It was a cozy winter morning at the Crawford house. And grandma was visiting to help make cookies and whatnot. Grandma was using her new iPhone and was asking about its features as she boldly took steps into the Apple world. She explained that she wanted to know if it would print to her fax machine. “Fax machines, are a thing of the past grandma.” I said, hoping to irritate her. But grandma being older and much wiser said “Oh? tell me dear grandson.” So I had her draw a picture. Used this app to scan it and then instantly printed the document from the computer behind me. All from my phone. Like magic, I had created her picture from thin air. Grandma no longer needs a fax machine. Thanks fellas!
Best scanner on the market!!
by Laniepi on 2020/06/09 04:20
I am a math teacher & have been using scanning apps for years to scan & share things like handwritten solutions. I would not have been able to make it through teaching online during the COVID-19 quarantine without this incredibly intuitive & easy to use app. We tested a few apps, but frankly, this was the only scanner app all of my students could figure out how to use. It holds all of my documents - and I have A LOT of documents. Before COVID-19, I was using a different scanner app. I switched to Adobe Scan exclusively and this will be the ONLY scanner app recommend/require for my students!
Works perfectly!
by Workingfromhome349 on 2017/09/13 18:12
This app is fantastic. I frequently have to scan documents/pages of notes into PDF format and e-mail them for work, which I usually wait to do at the office since I have access to the scanner there. However when I'm working from home it's trickier since I don't have a scanner here- enter this app to solve all my problems! I am so impressed with the quality of the scans- some apps produce grainy/blurry images that are clearly taken using a phone camera. I honestly can't tell the difference between documents I've scanned at the office vs. at home using this app. Highly, highly recommend!
Great tho not perfect
by Sol Goode on 2019/07/08 04:10
Great app. Ive digized several hard to find books and archival items and the app does a great job cropping the photos and capturing information that is already old and a little degraded. I really only have 2 complaints about this program: 1) it doesn’t remind you WHILE you’re scanning that it can only perform text recognition on scans of 25 pages or less. It waits until you’ve scanned everything and are about to save it as a pdf to remind you. 2) rearranging docs after you’ve done all your scanning can be really difficult because of the small thumbnail images.
