This is such a handy App!
by neaners78 on 2019/08/25 15:54
I love not having to use my big clunky scanner with the frustrating software when I can use this and already have it in my phone or airdrop it to my MacBook. It’s also nice not having to email files or use a thumb drive since they’re always with me on my phone!
The worst!
by Rozz on 2019/08/24 21:09
Crashes all the time. Uninstalled it after many attempts. Waste of time. The worst!
Great!

Great Tool
by Mobile! on 2019/08/23 12:58
This app and an iPod are helping me realize the results from 100+ hours of work writing a scrap tracking pivot table that will give our company nearly real-time oversight of scrap material being produced in our plant.
The BEST
by TheFlowers' on 2019/08/23 05:25
Hands down the most user friendly, easiest way to conduct business on the go whether it’s to fill and sign forms, scanning documents to your phone or to email using camera or an existing photo from your phone, creating a PDF from a scan or photo, scanning receipts, using creative cloud, etc. just a very useful app that I now can’t function without. The premium version is even better. Thank you
Replace a bulky office machine
by PDK0180 on 2019/08/23 01:41
The Old scanner is never used. With the flash on, my documents are consistent and immediately forwarded via email. Worried about storage? Just CC yourself on everything.
It failed me today so badly
by Yojka on 2019/08/22 23:39
I used to love the app, I scan book pages sometimes, when I need texts and pictures in pdf. And didn’t have any issues lately. But today I scanned 98 pages, that supposed to be in one document, spent 1.5 hrs doing it, and the app just turned off, nothing saved! Time lost, plus aching back. Ould use good old scanner instead, I guess...
YES

It does what it claims. It’s precise. It’s easy to use. Duh!
When it works
by Lubmom on 2019/08/22 20:44
When this app works, it’s great! Much better than Cam Scanner. However, if I’ve been using it and come back later, it doesn’t work well. I try to rename a file and sometimes yes, sometimes no. I’ve even watched it start to change and flip back to the default name. Then when I try to send it to myself, sometimes it’s immediate and sometimes it’s hours later. And it can’t be blamed on our internet because we use that all day without issues. Very frustrating when it’s something essential that I need to complete a file task. Improve this and I’ll definitely rate it higher!

Great for scanning to PDF, automatically cropping it when your pages are crumpled on edges or otherwise awkwardly shaped and making them look official and ready to use in seconds!

Very Useful & Handy App
by danafranklin on 2019/08/20 18:36
Thus far, I’ve only used this App a handful of ties, but find it very handy for saving documents, such as an estimate from y car dealers service shop, or keeping track of my pets veterinary statements. This keeps them readily accessible on my iPhone and iPad and I don’t have to worry about finding the paper copy months down the road. The image quality is quite close to that of scanning it on a copier/scanner machine. Really nice app to have.

by Raytenks on 2019/08/20 07:03
If the Adobe gods are listening, I’d like to suggest enabling the panoramic feature so we can lay several receipts (or other documents) out and drag our phones over a row of documents and split them up manually or automatically. Rollscan.

This app used to just work with no issues and now requires a log in. I don’t want to have to log in to scan documents. It isn’t hard or inconvenient but it is the principle of the matter. Will be switching to another app.

Has worked great for a year. Developers have released many updates and design changes. As of last week about half the time, after cropping and hitting save, my scam gets deleted! No technical support! Call Adobe but they say use forum. Forum doesn't work! Forum is full of people with the same issue!!

Nice scan
Not as good as other scanning apps
by JTMCad on 2019/08/14 12:40
Gotta say I thought that this would be a good app coming from adobe. It does it job yes, but compared to other scan apps it’s not as good. It doesn’t allow you to connect a cloud file service, you can’t even connect the adobe creative cloud file service! The only way to share the file is by sending a link or email it. This is not good for most modern reasons to have a scanning program. The best thing adobe could have done is have a cloud sync feature or at least the ability to share to the cloud.
App crashes every time

any time I go to take a photo of a business card, the app crashes. this has persisted for months, despite app updates.

Needs a jpeg/tiff option plus ability to save to photos
by krismeadows71 on 2019/08/06 06:08
This is a pretty good app. I like how easily and accurately it crops images. However as an artist I’m looking for an app that would allow me to save the cropped image as a jpeg and possibly tiff as well as the ability to save images into my iPhone’s “all photos” album or better yet into any album on my iPhone. As it stands this app is useless to me. If Adobe can add these options I’d be happy to re-download this already great app and give it 5 stars. Thanks!
Easy and Fast!

Does not upload any of my files
by bibiantoinette on 2019/08/03 03:02
It worked well the first day I got it, a few days ago.. Then the app has since revised to upload automatically to my document cloud. I have to go to each file and upload as a copy to my drive. I tried logging out and back in, have my preferences to use data on although it doesn't work on wifi either.

It does take a live photo and convert to a pdf. But when I tried it today, I didn’t realize I had to sign in first (google, Facebook or Adobe) which adds minutes to just snapping a photo of a document. Why?(probably bad design)

I’m not normally a person who keeps receipts but when you have too for legal or work reasons I suggest this... it captures and saves with astounding quality.

It’s so easy to scan and then open file in Acrobat. Wasn’t that easy to scan when I first started using in 2017. However, updates have made scanning a piece of cake. Not giving it 5 stars because filing to folders or sub-folders, cloud or device could really improve.
Can you fix crop feature please?
by llllskkkk on 2019/07/28 21:08
When I try to crop photos I took with my phone, “adjust borders” on the top and “Auto detect & No crop” at the bottom block for me to be able to crop the photo.

Documents Disappear
by Windberg on 2019/07/24 03:51
I really like the interface, but when I “scan” a document, it looks really crisp and professional. But as soon as I save as a PDF, THE DOCUMENT JUST DISAPPEARS. If Adobe ever fixes the glitch I will sing its praises.
Good but should save locally
by Laura55438 on 2019/07/23 14:16

Super easy, great results!
by Rckeys88 on 2019/07/23 13:26
Point and shoot was the game changer for the photography world. Adobe’s Scan app doesn’t disappoint. All I have to do is point my iPhone at the document, align with the app’s guidance, and voila’! My document is scanned. One button to convert to PDF and I can send it anywhere including a wireless printer. I highly recommend Adobe Scan!

This app is horrifying in comparison to Scannable. I am unable to take good, clear images for PDFs. I’ve tried in different lighting and positions, and Adobe Scan is always inferior in speed and quality to Evernote’s Scannable app. Would love to see Adobe improve their app, though.
Adobe Scan is Awesome
by IrishDi@$ on 2019/02/16 02:10
I will be telling everybody I know about this app. Now I can finally get PDF documents to keep with all the rest of my electronic files that are PDF’s instead of getting pictures of documents in JPEG. I had no idea that this app existed until today and I am just thrilled. I am not one who normally leaves reviews so that should give you some idea of how happy I am with it. One of the main reasons is it’s easy to use. All you do is take a picture of the document via the app and instead of a JPEG file it’s a PDF. Since the documents can be uploaded to the Adobe cloud you can access them from any of your devices, as well as, share them with anyone you want. Those that you share with can also make edits and/or include their comments. You can track whose made which comments or changes to the document and you can convert the PDF document to Word. I have already sent it to a client so he can stop sending me pictures of his receipts and instead send them in a PDF document. He can take pictures of all of them and then combine into one document, as well as, arrange the pages in whatever order he wants. There are just so many great features and a lot of them. It’s a great business tool at least for my type of work. Obviously, I highly recommend it!!!
Seamless integration with Adobe Document Cloud
by Lucas Rosenblatt, M.D. on 2018/06/15 18:09
This app is intuitive, fast, and the integration with Adobe CC and Document Cloud is perfectly seamless. I can “scan” a document using my iPhone camera and it’s immediately available as a PDF in Acrobat Pro on my Mac. The app assigns an appropriate color profile to the document, so space use is efficient—no outrageous file sizes for a B&W text document. It even attempts to recognize text, with surprising accuracy, enabling copy and paste functionality! My only grievance, if you can call it that, is the automation of the scan functionality... the app captures the page as soon as it detects a document, even if you’re not ready. This means that you might have 6-7 scans of the same document by the time you have everything perfectly straight, positioned, and in focus. It’s really not a big deal to go back and delete the pages you don’t want, but it does add an extra step. In a future update, the developers might consider adding a manual option, allowing the user to tap a “Scan” button to trigger the page capture. Overall, this is a fantastic app, and I look forward to new features as they come.
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
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Adobe Scan
by StarBlitzThunder 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.
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
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
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
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 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
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!
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.

by LuckyAce1 on 2019/04/11 18:25
Love this scan app! Has much needed feature! I now have the capability to send faxes . Now when you send to a fax number your documents are at legible and actual size when using adobe scan. This is truly a miracle tool for anyone who needs to send docs or contracts and only have a fax number and mailing address and takes to long or can crashes sending by email because file size. Learned this all by personal experience. This now can be done without having to go to a service center like Office Depot, UPS store, or any Business office just to send a fax. Wow a true breakthrough! Adobe Thank you!
Top two scanner apps here's why
by Studiorose11 on 2017/09/13 22:35
I refuse to buy this 200 textbook that the link rare in my school also has. So I was using Evernote scan feature. I did 150 pages in 30 minutes. Despite me having to repeatedly redo pages. I downloaded multiple apps to see which one recognized the page faster. I go so many apps I don't even remember getting this one. This app recognizes and snaps the photo the quickest out of them all. It's also the most accurate from what I've seen. I haven't compared quality of photos yet. But just k ow if you're doing a large amount of pages this will be the quickest.
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!
This app is great!!
by feecambrian on 2018/05/03 21:05
I’ve tried many scanner apps and this is the best so far. The auto detection and capture works great. Makes scanning multiple pages really fast. The pdf that this app creates is very clear. There is no need to go back and edit the brightness. One feature that I really like about this app is how you can edit the pdf file you already created. For example, let’s say you want to go back and add another page to your pdf file. All you have to do is hit modify scan and add another page. You can also edit the order of the pages after it has been created. Great app!!
Amazing product
by Lester Dent on 2018/08/15 19:34
When I first heard of this app from a client I was skeptical. I would tell them to take the docs to Staples to have a real scan made. More and more clients did not have scanners but had iPhones so I tried it out. I was amazed at the quality. I still prefer regular scans, and files are fairly large in size (although not as large as many scanner software defaults), but this is a great app when scan-level quality is not required. I used it just today at the post office to capture postage and envelopes, and I will have no qualms about submitting the results as an exhibit in Court.
I’m a huge fan
by nrusse10 on 2018/12/16 19:16
I’ve downloaded this app on all my devices and so far so good. I primarily use it for keeping track of my receipts, which there are plenty. I personal enjoy the ‘auto-capture’ mode which allows the app to snap a picture once the frame presented meets the desired setting. Rather than taking a picture of the receipt, then going in an trying to crop it and get it to the correct ‘black on white background’, this app does it all with a just a user friendly point and aim feature. NOT TO MENTION its FREEEEEE! I highly recommend this app to anyone with similar needs.
This app needs a “warp” feature!
by True_Gauntlets on 2018/07/27 04:24
As the title says, I do believe you guys should put a “warp” and/or “auto-warp” feature in this app! What if someone wants to scan something and the document or pic is warped in an awkward way, where you can’t get a straight scan? There’s a suggestion I think everyone would or should agree with! Another suggestion would be being able to save as a picture format, such as .jpeg, .png, and so on! Things to consider! But I do like this app! After discovering the feature in Dropbox, I did some digging and found this app! It’ll make some things easier on me! Might rate it a 5 if you add the “warp” feature!
Best Scanner App I’ve Used
by R~A~D on 2017/12/13 15:17
By far the best scanner app I have used. I do a lot of scanning for work and sometimes our scanner goes down for a period of time. The only apps I used to have made you hit a “+” to add a new page and then it took forever for the camera to pop up to actually take the picture. This app is automatic it automatically takes the pic once you line your document up and then it automatically adds another page unless you were done. I doubt I’ll get another scanner app as long as this one keeps performing that easy that it.
Used 2 times And Adobe Wants a Review! Huh?
by CraftyDIYfun on 2017/10/15 03:07
I've just downloaded this app and took 2 pictures of genealogy related documents then sent them to Evernote. Pertinent parts of one document and the entire 2nd document are handwritten therefore they will not OCR. Cant address much there. The app did not crash during the entire four minute project. Thanks Adobe! Indeedy, much appreciated. The auto find, fixate and scan of these two pages appear quite successful so far in my unvast length of time using the app. Wonderful! I checked -- yep they both arrived safely in Evernote. Quiet a relief! There - Ive dutifully complied once again.
Exceptional
by Apple2973 on 2018/10/29 01:58
Absolutely the best scanner on the market. I have used every scanner on the market, paid hundreds of dollars over 10 years, but without a doubt this is by far the best. You don’t have to set up the scanner every time you use it, or tell it where to store , or crop the wrong size. Download, setup and first scan in less than a minute. After that, scan until you have nothing to scan. It is a joy to use. You want a scanner to use without wasting time, Adobe scanner has no rival in the industry as of today. Thanks Adobe
I like it.
by theycallmemrpibb on 2017/10/26 04:00
I like it. That’s not gonna tell you much but I just have a few adobe creative cloud apps because I like to draw, and I got scan to help sort of expedite certain aspects of pictures I’m working on between the other art apps. But especially since I’m not really that tech-savvy and I certainly don’t use their software to make my living, it shouldn’t be surprising that I never know before downloading them how much their apps can do, and how well. And if you need a scanner thingy, I’m willing to bet a donut there’s a far worse one that isn’t free.
An excellent compliment to DC subscription
by Tinker683 on 2018/03/19 16:38
I used this app on my iPhone and iPad and it’s an excellent addition to use if you have a subscription to Acrobat Pro DC. The desktop of Acrobat has a link right in the toolbar to access the scans so you’ll never be far from them. The scans themselves come out very good and there is a plethora of editing options to make sure you get the right result. Finally, you can opt to make copies of the scans to your pictures so if you’re a Google Photos user like me, you’ll have ALL of the scans in two easily kept and stored locations.
Another A+ for Adobe

This Adobe Scan product is really great. It scan my documents perfectly even if they’re laminated or in a protective plastic. It’s easy to find scanned, screenshot print, or saved images, including with ornate frames. I use a lot of Adobe products, Cloud, Photoshop, Spark, etc. This Adobe Scan product is another addition to my lineup of superb Adobe products. It’s awesome that Adobe consistently puts out products that meet the highest standards of performance. I love that there are no “hidden charges” and have added Adobe to a very short list of Trusted Brands.
Great for copying from boards, books and articles into mono B&W images
by Keith_Istre on 2018/12/02 18:49
I create lots of slides sometimes using old (sometimes centuries old) graphics and charts. Adobe Scan lets me present them in a clear, clean and leveling way. Otherwise I would have to copy the graphic and adjust it in Photoshop or other image processing software. Great for copying from boards, books and articles into mono B&W or crisp color images. Loses a STAR for not having a desktop version. If I am wrong on s presentation on my laptop, I have to pull out my iPhone, take image, edit image, and then upload to a cloud service before I can use it.
This App saved us!!
by CFascher on 2017/08/25 18:47
We needed to fax signatures for our real estate contact. We only have mobile phones so having a fax machine is a no go. Taking a picture with our mobile phone doesn't covert to .PDF. Then we found that Adobe is keeping up with technology and they have this AMAZING app: Adobe Scan!! This app is simple to use, the Scan comes out perfect and its automatically converted to .PDF for us to attach to either a text message or an email!! Brilliant people work for Adobe!! Thank you to everyone that masterminded this app for us. Bravo!!
Amazing
by ArielJ23 on 2019/01/18 16:06
I downloaded this as a means for saving all my receipts. Before, saving receipts was such a hassle and despite my best efforts somehow I’d always manage to lose important ones. Using this app to scan my receipts as soon as I get them will definitely help keep me organized and efficient. These ease with which this app scans documents is so seamless that I’m going to use it to scan notes and text for school. The app also scans receipts incredibly clearly. Its ability to cut out borders and crop the document works wonderfully. I also love that I can make adjustments to the cropping which typically isn’t necessary at all. I tried the photo scanner function that searches for documents from camera roll and it found a speech I had given months ago that I meant to save and eventually forgot about. So glad the app found that speech for me. I’ve only just started using this app but so far I’m impressed.
Great compliment to Adobe Suite
by cohofosho24 on 2018/04/21 03:52
This is a fantastic app, that I am excited to see future developments for. I’ve tried all of the phone scanner apps - camscanner, office lens, one drive, drop box - Adobe is the quickest and most effective. I love the simplicity of the app, and I hope to see it integrate deeply into the creative cloud app universe. I am a teacher, and I use this app every day to try to find increase organization, and reduce paper use. As people that use Adobe know, it is is the real deal, but keep working to make this app even more of a savior in time saving and project management!

This is such a handy App!
by neaners78 on 2019/08/25 15:54
I love not having to use my big clunky scanner with the frustrating software when I can use this and already have it in my phone or airdrop it to my MacBook. It’s also nice not having to email files or use a thumb drive since they’re always with me on my phone!
The worst!
by Rozz on 2019/08/24 21:09
Crashes all the time. Uninstalled it after many attempts. Waste of time. The worst!
Great!

Great Tool
by Mobile! on 2019/08/23 12:58
This app and an iPod are helping me realize the results from 100+ hours of work writing a scrap tracking pivot table that will give our company nearly real-time oversight of scrap material being produced in our plant.
The BEST
by TheFlowers' on 2019/08/23 05:25
Hands down the most user friendly, easiest way to conduct business on the go whether it’s to fill and sign forms, scanning documents to your phone or to email using camera or an existing photo from your phone, creating a PDF from a scan or photo, scanning receipts, using creative cloud, etc. just a very useful app that I now can’t function without. The premium version is even better. Thank you

The Old scanner is never used. With the flash on, my documents are consistent and immediately forwarded via email. Worried about storage? Just CC yourself on everything.
It failed me today so badly
by Yojka on 2019/08/22 23:39
I used to love the app, I scan book pages sometimes, when I need texts and pictures in pdf. And didn’t have any issues lately. But today I scanned 98 pages, that supposed to be in one document, spent 1.5 hrs doing it, and the app just turned off, nothing saved! Time lost, plus aching back. Ould use good old scanner instead, I guess...
YES

It does what it claims. It’s precise. It’s easy to use. Duh!
When it works
by Lubmom on 2019/08/22 20:44
When this app works, it’s great! Much better than Cam Scanner. However, if I’ve been using it and come back later, it doesn’t work well. I try to rename a file and sometimes yes, sometimes no. I’ve even watched it start to change and flip back to the default name. Then when I try to send it to myself, sometimes it’s immediate and sometimes it’s hours later. And it can’t be blamed on our internet because we use that all day without issues. Very frustrating when it’s something essential that I need to complete a file task. Improve this and I’ll definitely rate it higher!

Very Useful & Handy App
by danafranklin on 2019/08/20 18:36
Thus far, I’ve only used this App a handful of ties, but find it very handy for saving documents, such as an estimate from y car dealers service shop, or keeping track of my pets veterinary statements. This keeps them readily accessible on my iPhone and iPad and I don’t have to worry about finding the paper copy months down the road. The image quality is quite close to that of scanning it on a copier/scanner machine. Really nice app to have.

by Raytenks on 2019/08/20 07:03
If the Adobe gods are listening, I’d like to suggest enabling the panoramic feature so we can lay several receipts (or other documents) out and drag our phones over a row of documents and split them up manually or automatically. Rollscan.

by General_Reikan on 2019/08/16 13:39
This app used to just work with no issues and now requires a log in. I don’t want to have to log in to scan documents. It isn’t hard or inconvenient but it is the principle of the matter. Will be switching to another app.

Now broken
by the piano builder on 2019/08/15 13:35
Has worked great for a year. Developers have released many updates and design changes. As of last week about half the time, after cropping and hitting save, my scam gets deleted! No technical support! Call Adobe but they say use forum. Forum doesn't work! Forum is full of people with the same issue!!
Best thing ever since Coca Cola!!!!!

Nice scan
Not as good as other scanning apps
by JTMCad on 2019/08/14 12:40
Gotta say I thought that this would be a good app coming from adobe. It does it job yes, but compared to other scan apps it’s not as good. It doesn’t allow you to connect a cloud file service, you can’t even connect the adobe creative cloud file service! The only way to share the file is by sending a link or email it. This is not good for most modern reasons to have a scanning program. The best thing adobe could have done is have a cloud sync feature or at least the ability to share to the cloud.
App crashes every time

any time I go to take a photo of a business card, the app crashes. this has persisted for months, despite app updates.

Needs a jpeg/tiff option plus ability to save to photos
by krismeadows71 on 2019/08/06 06:08
This is a pretty good app. I like how easily and accurately it crops images. However as an artist I’m looking for an app that would allow me to save the cropped image as a jpeg and possibly tiff as well as the ability to save images into my iPhone’s “all photos” album or better yet into any album on my iPhone. As it stands this app is useless to me. If Adobe can add these options I’d be happy to re-download this already great app and give it 5 stars. Thanks!
Easy and Fast!

It worked well the first day I got it, a few days ago.. Then the app has since revised to upload automatically to my document cloud. I have to go to each file and upload as a copy to my drive. I tried logging out and back in, have my preferences to use data on although it doesn't work on wifi either.

by Pete from NYC on 2019/07/30 19:45
It does take a live photo and convert to a pdf. But when I tried it today, I didn’t realize I had to sign in first (google, Facebook or Adobe) which adds minutes to just snapping a photo of a document. Why?(probably bad design)

I’m not normally a person who keeps receipts but when you have too for legal or work reasons I suggest this... it captures and saves with astounding quality. Anytime you may need to to scan and email you don’t have to look for a fax/scanner, just open your phone up, snap the document and send it.👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

Great app!
by ingie-wright on 2019/07/29 04:37
It’s so easy to scan and then open file in Acrobat. Wasn’t that easy to scan when I first started using in 2017. However, updates have made scanning a piece of cake. Not giving it 5 stars because filing to folders or sub-folders, cloud or device could really improve.
Can you fix crop feature please?
by llllskkkk on 2019/07/28 21:08
When I try to crop photos I took with my phone, “adjust borders” on the top and “Auto detect & No crop” at the bottom block for me to be able to crop the photo.

Documents Disappear
by Windberg on 2019/07/24 03:51
I really like the interface, but when I “scan” a document, it looks really crisp and professional. But as soon as I save as a PDF, THE DOCUMENT JUST DISAPPEARS. If Adobe ever fixes the glitch I will sing its praises.
Good but should save locally
by Laura55438 on 2019/07/23 14:16
This is a good app, but I REALLY wish it would save the PDFs to my local device, rather than their cloud. ☹️
Super easy, great results!

Point and shoot was the game changer for the photography world. Adobe’s Scan app doesn’t disappoint. All I have to do is point my iPhone at the document, align with the app’s guidance, and voila’! My document is scanned. One button to convert to PDF and I can send it anywhere including a wireless printer. I highly recommend Adobe Scan!

This app is horrifying in comparison to Scannable. I am unable to take good, clear images for PDFs. I’ve tried in different lighting and positions, and Adobe Scan is always inferior in speed and quality to Evernote’s Scannable app. Would love to see Adobe improve their app, though.

I will be telling everybody I know about this app. Now I can finally get PDF documents to keep with all the rest of my electronic files that are PDF’s instead of getting pictures of documents in JPEG. I had no idea that this app existed until today and I am just thrilled. I am not one who normally leaves reviews so that should give you some idea of how happy I am with it. One of the main reasons is it’s easy to use. All you do is take a picture of the document via the app and instead of a JPEG file it’s a PDF. Since the documents can be uploaded to the Adobe cloud you can access them from any of your devices, as well as, share them with anyone you want. Those that you share with can also make edits and/or include their comments. You can track whose made which comments or changes to the document and you can convert the PDF document to Word. I have already sent it to a client so he can stop sending me pictures of his receipts and instead send them in a PDF document. He can take pictures of all of them and then combine into one document, as well as, arrange the pages in whatever order he wants. There are just so many great features and a lot of them. It’s a great business tool at least for my type of work. Obviously, I highly recommend it!!!
Seamless integration with Adobe Document Cloud
by Lucas Rosenblatt, M.D. on 2018/06/15 18:09
This app is intuitive, fast, and the integration with Adobe CC and Document Cloud is perfectly seamless. I can “scan” a document using my iPhone camera and it’s immediately available as a PDF in Acrobat Pro on my Mac. The app assigns an appropriate color profile to the document, so space use is efficient—no outrageous file sizes for a B&W text document. It even attempts to recognize text, with surprising accuracy, enabling copy and paste functionality! My only grievance, if you can call it that, is the automation of the scan functionality... the app captures the page as soon as it detects a document, even if you’re not ready. This means that you might have 6-7 scans of the same document by the time you have everything perfectly straight, positioned, and in focus. It’s really not a big deal to go back and delete the pages you don’t want, but it does add an extra step. In a future update, the developers might consider adding a manual option, allowing the user to tap a “Scan” button to trigger the page capture. Overall, this is a fantastic app, and I look forward to new features as they come.
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
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!
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Adobe Scan
by StarBlitzThunder 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.
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
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
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
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 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
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!
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.

by LuckyAce1 on 2019/04/11 18:25
Love this scan app! Has much needed feature! I now have the capability to send faxes . Now when you send to a fax number your documents are at legible and actual size when using adobe scan. This is truly a miracle tool for anyone who needs to send docs or contracts and only have a fax number and mailing address and takes to long or can crashes sending by email because file size. Learned this all by personal experience. This now can be done without having to go to a service center like Office Depot, UPS store, or any Business office just to send a fax. Wow a true breakthrough! Adobe Thank you!
Top two scanner apps here's why
by Studiorose11 on 2017/09/13 22:35
I refuse to buy this 200 textbook that the link rare in my school also has. So I was using Evernote scan feature. I did 150 pages in 30 minutes. Despite me having to repeatedly redo pages. I downloaded multiple apps to see which one recognized the page faster. I go so many apps I don't even remember getting this one. This app recognizes and snaps the photo the quickest out of them all. It's also the most accurate from what I've seen. I haven't compared quality of photos yet. But just k ow if you're doing a large amount of pages this will be the quickest.
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!
This app is great!!
by feecambrian on 2018/05/03 21:05
I’ve tried many scanner apps and this is the best so far. The auto detection and capture works great. Makes scanning multiple pages really fast. The pdf that this app creates is very clear. There is no need to go back and edit the brightness. One feature that I really like about this app is how you can edit the pdf file you already created. For example, let’s say you want to go back and add another page to your pdf file. All you have to do is hit modify scan and add another page. You can also edit the order of the pages after it has been created. Great app!!
Amazing product

When I first heard of this app from a client I was skeptical. I would tell them to take the docs to Staples to have a real scan made. More and more clients did not have scanners but had iPhones so I tried it out. I was amazed at the quality. I still prefer regular scans, and files are fairly large in size (although not as large as many scanner software defaults), but this is a great app when scan-level quality is not required. I used it just today at the post office to capture postage and envelopes, and I will have no qualms about submitting the results as an exhibit in Court.
I’m a huge fan

I’ve downloaded this app on all my devices and so far so good. I primarily use it for keeping track of my receipts, which there are plenty. I personal enjoy the ‘auto-capture’ mode which allows the app to snap a picture once the frame presented meets the desired setting. Rather than taking a picture of the receipt, then going in an trying to crop it and get it to the correct ‘black on white background’, this app does it all with a just a user friendly point and aim feature. NOT TO MENTION its FREEEEEE! I highly recommend this app to anyone with similar needs.
This app needs a “warp” feature!
by True_Gauntlets on 2018/07/27 04:24
As the title says, I do believe you guys should put a “warp” and/or “auto-warp” feature in this app! What if someone wants to scan something and the document or pic is warped in an awkward way, where you can’t get a straight scan? There’s a suggestion I think everyone would or should agree with! Another suggestion would be being able to save as a picture format, such as .jpeg, .png, and so on! Things to consider! But I do like this app! After discovering the feature in Dropbox, I did some digging and found this app! It’ll make some things easier on me! Might rate it a 5 if you add the “warp” feature!
Best Scanner App I’ve Used
by R~A~D on 2017/12/13 15:17
By far the best scanner app I have used. I do a lot of scanning for work and sometimes our scanner goes down for a period of time. The only apps I used to have made you hit a “+” to add a new page and then it took forever for the camera to pop up to actually take the picture. This app is automatic it automatically takes the pic once you line your document up and then it automatically adds another page unless you were done. I doubt I’ll get another scanner app as long as this one keeps performing that easy that it.
Used 2 times And Adobe Wants a Review! Huh?

I've just downloaded this app and took 2 pictures of genealogy related documents then sent them to Evernote. Pertinent parts of one document and the entire 2nd document are handwritten therefore they will not OCR. Cant address much there. The app did not crash during the entire four minute project. Thanks Adobe! Indeedy, much appreciated. The auto find, fixate and scan of these two pages appear quite successful so far in my unvast length of time using the app. Wonderful! I checked -- yep they both arrived safely in Evernote. Quiet a relief! There - Ive dutifully complied once again.
Exceptional

Absolutely the best scanner on the market. I have used every scanner on the market, paid hundreds of dollars over 10 years, but without a doubt this is by far the best. You don’t have to set up the scanner every time you use it, or tell it where to store , or crop the wrong size. Download, setup and first scan in less than a minute. After that, scan until you have nothing to scan. It is a joy to use. You want a scanner to use without wasting time, Adobe scanner has no rival in the industry as of today. Thanks Adobe
I like it.

I like it. That’s not gonna tell you much but I just have a few adobe creative cloud apps because I like to draw, and I got scan to help sort of expedite certain aspects of pictures I’m working on between the other art apps. But especially since I’m not really that tech-savvy and I certainly don’t use their software to make my living, it shouldn’t be surprising that I never know before downloading them how much their apps can do, and how well. And if you need a scanner thingy, I’m willing to bet a donut there’s a far worse one that isn’t free.
An excellent compliment to DC subscription
by Tinker683 on 2018/03/19 16:38
I used this app on my iPhone and iPad and it’s an excellent addition to use if you have a subscription to Acrobat Pro DC. The desktop of Acrobat has a link right in the toolbar to access the scans so you’ll never be far from them. The scans themselves come out very good and there is a plethora of editing options to make sure you get the right result. Finally, you can opt to make copies of the scans to your pictures so if you’re a Google Photos user like me, you’ll have ALL of the scans in two easily kept and stored locations.
Another A+ for Adobe

This Adobe Scan product is really great. It scan my documents perfectly even if they’re laminated or in a protective plastic. It’s easy to find scanned, screenshot print, or saved images, including with ornate frames. I use a lot of Adobe products, Cloud, Photoshop, Spark, etc. This Adobe Scan product is another addition to my lineup of superb Adobe products. It’s awesome that Adobe consistently puts out products that meet the highest standards of performance. I love that there are no “hidden charges” and have added Adobe to a very short list of Trusted Brands.
Great for copying from boards, books and articles into mono B&W images
by Keith_Istre on 2018/12/02 18:49
I create lots of slides sometimes using old (sometimes centuries old) graphics and charts. Adobe Scan lets me present them in a clear, clean and leveling way. Otherwise I would have to copy the graphic and adjust it in Photoshop or other image processing software. Great for copying from boards, books and articles into mono B&W or crisp color images. Loses a STAR for not having a desktop version. If I am wrong on s presentation on my laptop, I have to pull out my iPhone, take image, edit image, and then upload to a cloud service before I can use it.
This App saved us!!
by CFascher on 2017/08/25 18:47
We needed to fax signatures for our real estate contact. We only have mobile phones so having a fax machine is a no go. Taking a picture with our mobile phone doesn't covert to .PDF. Then we found that Adobe is keeping up with technology and they have this AMAZING app: Adobe Scan!! This app is simple to use, the Scan comes out perfect and its automatically converted to .PDF for us to attach to either a text message or an email!! Brilliant people work for Adobe!! Thank you to everyone that masterminded this app for us. Bravo!!
Amazing

I downloaded this as a means for saving all my receipts. Before, saving receipts was such a hassle and despite my best efforts somehow I’d always manage to lose important ones. Using this app to scan my receipts as soon as I get them will definitely help keep me organized and efficient. These ease with which this app scans documents is so seamless that I’m going to use it to scan notes and text for school. The app also scans receipts incredibly clearly. Its ability to cut out borders and crop the document works wonderfully. I also love that I can make adjustments to the cropping which typically isn’t necessary at all. I tried the photo scanner function that searches for documents from camera roll and it found a speech I had given months ago that I meant to save and eventually forgot about. So glad the app found that speech for me. I’ve only just started using this app but so far I’m impressed.
Great compliment to Adobe Suite
by cohofosho24 on 2018/04/21 03:52
This is a fantastic app, that I am excited to see future developments for. I’ve tried all of the phone scanner apps - camscanner, office lens, one drive, drop box - Adobe is the quickest and most effective. I love the simplicity of the app, and I hope to see it integrate deeply into the creative cloud app universe. I am a teacher, and I use this app every day to try to find increase organization, and reduce paper use. As people that use Adobe know, it is is the real deal, but keep working to make this app even more of a savior in time saving and project management!
