Espectacular

Una experiencia maravillosa y sencilla
Beautiful Magic
by Alex Dunber on 2021/01/26 07:13
This app has been great for years, but the recent update is bliss to use. Automatic page sizes, capture, and upload.
Horrible now
by Johnny465 on 2021/01/26 02:06
Crashes constantly.
Loved it - now frustrated by it
by zombiwoman on 2021/01/25 15:48
Another great app ‘improved’ beyond actual ease of use. I used to be able to open, center, scan, save - boom done. There are now additional, CONFUSING, steps which are non-intuitive. ☹️
Just gets better and better over time
by Douglas in Deerfield on 2021/01/24 20:05
I have used this application for many years. Works great and worth every penny.
Terrible, horrible new version
by Yusuf VA on 2021/01/24 18:01
Please please please bring back old version 7. Never update again. It worked flawlessly. Now no functionality is working. It is crashing everywhere. ICloud One drive syncing is horrible and not working. It had been 3-4 months and developers are not able fix as of today. Several IPS files and logs were sent to no resolution as of today Jan 18, 2021. Very important to note to keep out of big mess of ICloud drive sync. It creates duplicates of file every time you open it. I had 360 files now I have 18000 filed. Each file has 55 duplicates renaming adding number 1 to 55. Basically I launched this app 55 times during two weeks time so created duplicate each time it was opened. It’s taking me days to clean up ICloud folder.
Fantastic For An iPhone
by Dennyhayes on 2021/01/24 17:16
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the OCR needs improvement on things like receipts. I tried to scan my receipts to put into a database that can parse all of the data to the proper categories, but most receipt quality is not great. So I did some experiments to see if it was only the quality of the receipt text, because I realized that if it was totally unrecognizable it would be impossible for any OCR. So I first did a scan of the whole receipt, with yielded many mistakes. So then I used the iPhone photo app to edit the same image many times, each time cropping off areas, leaving only the text that the OCR made mistakes on. This effectively zoomed in on the text, and each time the OCR had an easier time recognizing the text. I did this multiple times, zooming in on every area of the receipts, until it had recognized the entire receipt. So, since it is obviously possible the scanner app could do something similar and end up recognizing the whole receipts.
Used to be a good app (2021-01-23)
by jpiszcz1 on 2021/01/23 10:51
App frequently crashes or hangs up, AFTER you scan everything in. Then when you reopen the app it’s gone. When this problem is fixed the app will shoot back to #1 place for the best scanning app.
Takes three times as long to scan now
by AMIC97 on 2021/01/22 18:56
The new scanning functionality is horrible. The auto mode is too quick to snap a scan and even when I think the paper is in the box after it scans it still has the surrounding table around it and I can’t figure out how to remove that without just trying the scan multiple times before it finally crops it correctly. Please restore the old functionality.
Hate latest update!!!
by Chief_1 on 2021/01/22 16:28
Scans used to be quick and easy. Now, with latest update, you have to crop each page, which sometimes works and mostly doesn’t!!! Takes longer to scan documents!
How do I cancel the app to do t get charge
by vannegreer on 2021/01/22 05:10
It doesn’t have a easy access to cancel your suscripción
Buggy
by lilmikeinfiniti on 2021/01/22 03:38
Sometimes you can rename a folder sometimes you can’t, this needs to be fixed. Search engine sometimes can find stuff sometimes can’t, this needs to be fixed. Need to be able to add Folds inside Folds.
Pay attention to latest feedback
by coyote96 on 2021/01/21 20:45
I used this app ALL THE TIME... for years... was 5 stars easily... last update has made it less than 1 star (if I could give that). Locks up and crashes constantly... most of the time I can’t take one photo without having to close the app and reopen. It’s trash now, and for some reason no one is addressing it. SO FRUSTRATING! Guess I’m on the lookout for a new one now 🤷🏼‍♂️
Owned for years; New update is nice
by ( ˘⌣˘)づ)˚з°) on 2021/01/21 12:12
Can’t say that I’m surprised to see folks complaining about the new update, as this seems to be the trend whenever something gets a makeover. Many times the negative reviews are warranted (Fantastical, Airmail — although these two screwed themselves for reasons in addition to their update rendering the apps into hot garbage). This time around, I can say that I’m not disappointed. All the claims regarding new (or kinda new) functions seem to be accurate enough, and I’m enjoying the refreshed interface, which brings the experience up to date and able to aesthetically compete with its peers. To that end, I do have one feature request, which I would be surprised to learn wasn’t already in the works: it would be great to have the ability to change the color scheme/themes, especially with many people utilizing dark mode. Multiple options would be excellent, but even seeing an option to change out blue for grey tones and/or a dark mode would make me a happy camper. Anyways, cheers to the folks over at Readdle. Keep up the good work!
Why did you screw it up?!
by GG Dasher on 2021/01/21 05:23
This app WAS perfect. I had this on about half a dozen devices and recommended it to a dozen friends and then after the last update the app CRASHES EVERY TIME I use it. Whyyyyyy?!!
Well done
by Schramm's on 2021/01/20 02:32
You turned a fine app into a piece of s***
Ruined a perfectly good app
by dmellybelly on 2021/01/19 20:00
Used to be a great program. Recent updates wrecked it
Bad update.
by jammerpt on 2021/01/18 20:41
Was a great app latest update makes it unusable. Don’t buy until they fix it.
Keeps crashing
by ELF! on 2021/01/18 20:22
Used this for years and recommended it to everyone but the most recent update has rendered it almost useless. Please fix
Not better but worse
by BassaBoy on 2021/01/17 23:23
I think the app is piss off because I didn’t give it access to all my photos instead I choose “Select Photo”. Importing from Photos to this app has gotten slow and buggy. I selected six photos to import in to scanner pro and I hung up on the fourth photo. After twenty minutes, I closed the app and reopen, I saw only 3 photos. I repeated the import task for the other three photos and It got hung up on the second photo. Only one photo go imported, basically the it was the same problem . This is exactly why I have stop buying third-party app. These app developer can afford to buy an iDevice of every to test their app on just to be sure customers don’t get inconvenience. Instead I think they choose to take huge risk guided by greed but, its all at the expense of the customer so, what do they care. Please fix when you feel sorry for me. Thank you.

What happened?
by presto211 on 2021/01/17 21:57
What once took me less than a minute just took me more than five (let’s call it 10 now since I felt compelled to vent my frustration here). Latest update issues: - Have to toggle Find Borders/Select All an extra time before document is properly cropped - Unable to edit title when sharing to Evernote - Insists upon adding new photo/scan to a grouping with previous photo (even if previous photo is nearly a year old)
What Happened to this app?
by Stevesmith16546 on 2021/01/16 23:49
I’ve used this app for years. I love it! What did you do to it. The last update is totally useless. It crashes all the time. I should say each and every time I use it. Please fix it, I really don’t want to find a new app but will have to since this one is totally useless.
Exceeded Expectations
by Winston Percy on 2021/01/16 21:25
I use this app very frequently. It’s great to capture quick pieces on information or something you need to go on the go. I can also see how this could be used for work purposes. I’ve used this to save greeting cards and take pictures of needed documents. I love how it automatically knows where the photo/document starts and ends. It takes a quick snapshot and it’s always spot on. I would recommend this to everyone.
Can’t rename documents
by MyFavoriteToy on 2021/01/15 23:22
This app scans well and is reasonably intuitive but for the life of me I can’t figure out how to rename the scanned documents. They save with the date as name. Also I’ve had trouble sharing in texts and emails.
Super hard and not intuitive to use after last updates
by Ioana Galu on 2021/01/15 16:09
I am disappointed by the last updates that made it impenetrable to use. Please please please change these back, it doesn’t get hip or modern, just annoying, and now I am looking for another scanner app. You messed it up!!
WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT?
by GunnyHighway636262 on 2021/01/14 23:22
This WAS an amazing app. The recent “update” makes it unusable. It used to automatically crop out everything BUT the documents you are trying to scan. It no longer does so you will now see the desk or whatever your document is sitting on in the scan. Make it look very unprofessional. Also, it used to scan very clear copies, the resolution is absolutely terrible now. It was literally a perfect app before. Not anymore.
APP KEEPS CRASHING
by pgetta11 on 2021/01/14 06:45
THE CURRENT VERSION IS WORTHLESS. THE APP KEEPS FREEZING WHILE I’M SCANNING. NOT VERY EFFICIENT.
BROKEN
by DTrib on 2021/01/13 03:23
This latest update RUINED one of my favorite apps for productivity. The auto function is too sensitive, glitchy, and inconsistent. The app is currently trash. Do not buy until this is fixed. So disappointed.
Sooo useful.
by Sixcrows on 2021/01/13 01:56
I have been using this app to scan and fax documents to an attorney for the past year. It has worked perfectly, and has saved me from a mountain of aggravation. A+
Please, Fix the Bugs.
by felipemcardoso on 2021/01/11 01:44
Even after recent update, app continues to crash often when scanning multiple pages. This is not acceptable and makes the users to lose the trust on the app.
Straight to the point
by GeorgeB977 on 2021/01/10 17:19
Sometimes, while in a hurry to send documents...this app comes extremely in handy. 5 Star for the interface and usefulness.
Scanner Pro Updates are Horrible
by Zeekbag on 2021/01/10 02:01
I used to live this app, used it almost daily and recommended it to many. Then they changed a good thing, it takes me twice as many clicks to do the same thing, removed features and it even fails to save sometimes after I’ve done all the work of scanning and naming a document. Very frustrating. If I don’t see an improvement, I’ll be looking for a new scanner app.
High quality. Very useful.
by gappenstance on 2021/01/09 23:52
This app is great. I use it to scan receipts or text documents to read later. Lots of organizations options and the text capture is sharper than first-party options. Grab it today!
Love it
by huangxiaohuo on 2021/01/09 23:45
Very handy, easy to use, and really helps me a lot with my work. Highly recommend it!
Keeps Crashing after iOS 14.4
by smf30040 on 2021/01/09 16:01
Using latest version 8.0.3. The app does not consistently work well when scanning a JPG from existing iPhone photos. I’ve been using this app for many years and it always worked flawlessly whether it was a JPG or OCR scan. Now I’m lucky if it will scan one photo at a time into PDF. It now almost always crashes if attempting to scan more than one JPG file at a time. Please fix!
Gray app but notice lately that cropping doesn’t save
by Mecsor on 2021/01/08 19:01
This app is good but now when you crop an image it does not save it. It defaults back to its original crop. Please check
Update?
by NeenaMary on 2021/01/07 17:48
Has there been an update in the last week? Suddenly, the app freezes a lot.
The app has been crashing
by Raffikio on 2021/01/07 16:47
I love this app, however it’s been two separate occasions now that the app crashes when I open it . . . Not efficient. Please fix and this is a 5 star app
Scan compression
by M-Moazami on 2021/01/07 14:59
Hi Thank you for your high availability applications I’m interested to ask if it’s possible to add facility that let me choose which of my scans should be compressed. Now you have this for all my scans, but sometimes I need image quality. Thanks Best regards. M-R Moazami
I used to love this app
by MHamm5 on 2021/01/06 18:55
I used this app for my kids’ online school for months and it was fantastic. Then they updated it and now it crashes ALL THE TIME. I have to rescan my kids’ work all the time and it is constantly just shutting off. It’s very frustrating.
You broke it.
by Arcticblew on 2021/01/06 17:27
Have been using this great app for years. Recently the auto scan struggles to get the correct border. I have to constantly manually adjust... using iPhone 12 pro
Great app. Horrible syncing.
by Juniorraz on 2021/01/06 00:31
This used to be a great app but has serious problems syncing via iCloud. With the latest version, I also can no longer scan since the app freezes after taking a scan and crashes. This is with the iPhone 12 Pro and latest version of scannerpro.
New release is so unstable. I used to love it
by Arafesd on 2021/01/05 17:44
This new release is so buggy and it crashes all the time. Readdle team: pls fix this ASAP or I am moving on to another app. I use this every day at least I try to.
This app was awesome
by $lip on 2021/01/05 16:56
Recent updates have made it extremely buggy on my iPhone 11. The pdf looks fine in the app but when exported it cuts pages in half. I have auto crop turned off and it still crops AFTER the export.
Crap !
by crackhead365 on 2021/01/05 16:34
This app used to be perfect, but after the last update I lost three years of files !!
Used to be good
by luminusjohn on 2021/01/05 14:09
I would have rated this five stars but they overhauled the app and changed a bunch of things. It worked perfectly fine before, never had any issues. Now I can’t even manually a capture an image if the phone is facing down parallel to the document.
Used to be amazing. Now it’s broken.
by daneboe on 2021/01/05 07:23
I’ll change my review if the devs fix the app. It worked perfectly for years. They recently updated it and now it’s a broken mess. Crashes CONSTANTLY. So much so that it’s unusable.
Excellent, convenient
by sherryvt on 2021/01/04 04:55
User friendly- couldn’t do without it!
Deleted Data
by s6567 on 2021/01/04 01:20
7 hours of scanning memories and this app deleted them and all other previous scans. and deleted backups from the cloud too. dont release an update if its not ready.
Buggy, crashes, Randomly turns off iCloud sync
by a student and reviewer on 2021/01/03 23:36
Used it with iCloud, one day all the data in folders is there, the next day all of the scanner pro folders disappeared. After a panic I realized it had turned off iCloud sync without any notice. After turning it back on the docs reappear but each time this happens (randomly several times per day) they need to be re-indexed. Despite all of the highly positive reviews of this app, I find that it is not particularly careful with your data.
No longer allows adjusting to exact image
by are nicknames necessary? on 2021/01/03 20:21
A recent upgrade has “fixed” a non-existent problem, and you can no longer manually adjust the corners OR the final ratio of the image! No matter where you put the borders, no matter what custom (correct), size you choose, scanner pro now sets everything to their defaults. Good system for amateurs only, who don’t need specific images of documents. This worked great for years. I do NOT recommend this as it exists.
iCloud Sync Needs Improvement
by jeffkmeng on 2021/01/03 02:14
The scanning functionality of this app is great. However, trying the iCloud sync feature makes the app unusable. Each time you start the app, it freezes (and presumably downloads all your files off of iCloud) for multiple minutes before you can scan anything. How hard is it it to make the app sync your files with iCloud in the background?
Helpful App!
by Abigail M. Radis on 2021/01/02 18:05
This app is very helpful and easy to use!
Literally great
by Jaredr21 on 2021/01/02 05:46
The closest scan app to perfect is this one by Readdle. Scanner pro is functionally solid and is leagues above all other competitors. Readdle is quickly becoming a real contender with Omni as being the best Mac and iOS developer. I hope they move on to Mac apps soon.m Edit: 1/1/2021 - Best app ever but newest upgrade is very buggy. Hope you guys can get it fixed soon. Thanks!
Developers, help!
by operaman1 on 2021/01/02 03:31
I am a musician, and have used this app constantly, filing my music in organized folders in scanner pro. After this update, ALL my folders are GONE, with THOUSANDS of pieces of music! WHERE DID THEY GO?!? PLEASE HELP!
Crashes constantly
by FinancialAid on 2020/12/31 07:12
Since I updated this scanner app, it crashes constantly. It will not upload my documents to Google Drive on WiFi. This app is frustrating now.
What happened???
by Oohrah17 on 2020/12/30 01:01
Version 8 is almost useless. Crashes, bugs, UX requires more steps... I want Version 7 back, it was awesome and reliable.
Total crap with last update
by Donitan on 2020/12/29 19:57
Since the last update, this app is useless. Don’t buy!!
Excelente
by Hidekel7 on 2020/12/29 09:51
Llevo años con ustedes, gracias por su gran trabajo....y fidelidad....
Lots of bugs on new version
by Calguy587 on 2020/12/28 23:06
Older version was almost crash proof. The new version does have a lot of good features on it. However it tends to crash often and will not scan on the first try (shows processing and never finishes)
App useless on iOS 13
by 99bb on 2020/12/28 20:29
New update works great on my phone (on iOS 14), but now results in horrible unusable quality when creating a scan from existing photos on iOS 13 on my older iPad. Hope this gets fixed
Now useless
by JeffD01 on 2020/12/27 14:50
This app worked great until the last update. I can no longer use the scans in Paperport as the scanned documents freeze in Paperport. Now completely useless. Please fix the app.
Great when it works.
by tddpalmer on 2020/12/26 20:10
Buggy. Works well when it is functioning. However, it has been a crap shoot everyday whether it will work. I have been in contact with app support and restarting my phone tends to be the solution. I need something reliable and thus far, this app is not.
Ruined App with update
by Golf4278 on 2020/12/26 19:00
Used this app everyday until update. It’s crashes as soon as it opens. Time to move on I guess.
It was much better before
by esmailbytarrr on 2020/12/25 20:50
Now with the last update it is worse. I’m sorry. Although I crop it manually, still it crops the page automatically like “it wants”... I’m disappointed. I was big fan of the app. Even when I have Android phone, I still use this app on iOS since there’s no android version of it.
Best app ever
by alielbagdadi on 2020/12/25 10:05
Thank uuu for this app .. its really helped me in my work 🤞🏽🤞🏽
Beat scanner App!
by Fergusexec on 2020/12/24 16:15
I have been using this app for several years for scanning to archive, fax, email, text, send, business and personal use. Makes excellent clear and cleaned up scans. Can’t say enough, love it!
Excelente APP
by Raymond desde PR on 2020/12/23 19:50
Esta APP es excelente y fácil de utilizar. Tiene muchas opciones y es gratis.
Excellent scanner!
by Love it! 👍🏼 on 2020/12/23 03:41
I even scan professional reports with this product. Plus, once I figured it out initially, it’s now a piece of cake. Shadows are gone with the black and white option. Give it a try; it’s worth it.
Great app
by grizzlynate on 2020/12/23 02:44
Scan Pro makes my work so much easier! Thanks Scan Pro!!!
What happened?
by choctalian on 2020/12/22 16:30
I have loved this scanner for a few years, now. But this recent update has made scanning nearly impossible. It’s my hope that you all will work this glitch out really soon.
App freezes on new update.
by SammyReza on 2020/12/22 15:52
Whats the point of paying for a pro membership if the app keeps freezing on you after scanning a few pages? Switch to Adobe which is more reliable. Please fix this or refund my subscription. Extremely frustrated.
Bad “upgrade”
by RJ382 on 2020/12/22 05:36
Completely useless after upgrade. No longer crops images.
Please downgrade
by MONEROKING on 2020/12/22 05:06
The new app update keeps crashing, I never write reviews but this use to be number one in my phone Please bring back the old version
NEW 8.02 version is crashing!!
by Taarik on 2020/12/22 03:12
Why mess with success!! This new version is always crashing and I have to resume any documents from scratch! Also, PDFs are ‘disappearing’ and nowhere to be found😡😡😡
With update I am unable to rotate
by RoccocoJoe on 2020/12/22 01:20
With this update, I have lost the ability to rotate my scan. I will admit it’s scanning much faster. I’m also now unable to upload to Dropbox. It keeps failing. Ok, I found out how to rotate. It was hidden behind crop. Still can upload to Dropbox. I wound up emailing to myself.
Buggy 🙁
by co_biker on 2020/12/21 21:22
Was great until the last update. Now it freezes every time I try to scan.
Useless since the upgrade
by varzen on 2020/12/21 17:29
This is my go to app for scanning document (I try to be as Paperless as I can) and auto upload to my preferred cloud storage. Since the last update, scans have a bluish tint and it tries to find edges of larger text. What a mess!!!
Absolutely useless for a 12 Pro Max running iOS 14
by Donkeydonkdonk72 on 2020/12/21 16:25
Not sure how developers could let a once great app slip into uselessness but they did. This app worked fine before the update and now all I get is a black screen when I try to scan a documentZ it’s like it doesn’t have camera permissions when in fact it does. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled. Absolutely useless Readdle. Maybe I’ll come back when your developers start caring about the product again.
Recent update deleted all prior scans.
by Ashok Krishnan on 2020/12/21 04:49
Great app. But the recent update seems to have completely cleared out all prior scans. What a loss! :-(
Useless since the upgrade!
by globile on 2020/12/20 10:36
I never write reviews but I just can’t understand how they shipped such a buggy and poorly tested version. App crashes all the time halfway thru a scanning session. Stalls sporadically when taking a pic or simply you get a black screen and crash. Uploads fail and return null errors with no way to clear them. They removed functionality such as the document name history suggestion option which enabled you to use previous names as templates as well as add dates easily. Overall a big step backwards. Already looking for an alternative.
Was Great - Now Terrible
by No iPad, fool? on 2020/12/19 22:23
This app used to be fantastic. It was reliable, quick to automatically capture pages, didn’t crash. I’ve used it for years and it was fine. Recent updates have been terrible. The UX has gotten worse, the automatic capture works badly, the app locks up. Truly terrible.
Love this app
by joeledwards on 2020/12/19 20:14
Fantastic scanner app. Use it almost every day for personal and work documents. Lots of great features that work flawlessly. Highly recommend this app.
All my files disappeared
by trb321 on 2020/12/19 14:59
Used this for years but was horrified when all my files were deleted. Shame
Terrific app
by Dtwguy65 on 2020/12/18 22:08
I’ve used and loved this app for years. It was the best scanning app! Now, it stinks. It freezes. It’s not intuitive. It often doesn’t focus. Renaming docs has become more effort. Yeah. They added some useless whiz bang features. But at the expense of a great and reliable app experience.

Years Gone By

It’s been years since I’ve used this app. I stopped using it and had deleted it from my phone since sometime between the time I purchased it and 2016. I deleted it because I was not happy with it. The only thing is that it’s been so long I have forgotten why I stopped using it. It’s possible that I deleted it because Apple switched to iCloud and I couldn’t use iCloud because I was afraid that one of my other app’s data would end up in the hands of the developers. It’s a long story. But I will try to explain. I have a journal app that has been abandoned because it was replaced by a new app with a subscription. I missed the cutoff date for the new app because my mother was very ill in a nursing home. So I wasn’t aware at the time that the old journal app was going to get left behind. And now I still have the old app because I don’t want to pay for a subscription only to have all my life’s history on a new app that handles my data instead of Apple, and have to pay for it too! Well, my loss. That’s the end of my story. And now my mother is gone too.
GREAT APP!!!
by ryley25 on 2020/12/18 15:57
By far one of the best doc scanning apps! If there was anything to add as far as features, I would like the ability to import a document from iCloud to be able to fax or a pop up extension when opening an iCloud document to be able to fax from that location. The fax feature is great, but you can only fax documents that are already scanned into the app.
great app

Amazing
by H3PCAT on 2020/12/18 01:47
I’ve been working from home since March and I’ve used this app to scan and email documents almost every day. It’s pretty much flawless, easy to use, and I love it
App is best scanner app I’ve used....but
by Peavey Guy on 2020/12/18 01:31
Just purchased iPhone 12 pro max. App crashes every time I open it. I tried to send emails to support but app won’t stay open long enough to compose and send. I use this app every day for work and it is the best I’ve used for scanning and uploading files to Salesforce. This is really the first time I’ve had any issues with it.
Love the Scanner Pro app. So easy and convenient to use.

Can’t rename a document when in Zoomed mode
by DC in SCV on 2020/12/17 05:48
When I use the iPhone setting Display Zoom and set it to Zoomed mode, you can’t rename documents because the keyboard overlaps the document name field.
Mess up a great app
by mce99 on 2020/12/16 23:45
App worked great before update. In adding new features totally changed the look and feel when it wasn’t necessary. Have to relearn where various commands are. I can only assume new developers just started fresh. If I need to relearn locations I might as well go to a different app.
Like it, but lack of Options
by WelcomeHomeSW on 2020/12/16 23:41
I first discovered the ability to create a PDF on my phone while using Fast Scanner on my Android phone. It was the single greatest APP EVER! Then I went to iPhone, and that App was not compatible, so I was recommended to THIS APP. It works “ok” I guess, but the ability to save to Dropbox was very, very difficult in earlier versions. Over the last two years they’ve certainly gotten more compatible with Dropbox. So THAT is good! I also don’t like it that there’s no way to adjust the view of all the files on The main page. It ONLY displays in large thumbnails, and not as a “list” view. I really dislike thumbnail views for anything except pictures and I don’t understand why the programmers have not given us the option to change the view to a list format. It’s very standard Microsoft’s been doing it for 30 years now... so what’s the problem? While the ability to create a PDF is the most helpful technological leap in my work in the last few years. I honestly can’t wait to get back to Android. And my old fav app.
Latest update is awful
by Shaolo on 2020/12/16 23:03
Crashes continuously. Still can’t sort asc/desc, randomly turns off iCloud sync, and more. I really miss the previous version.
Great App
by Patriot PawPaw on 2020/12/16 22:56
use it at least once a month.This act
I use this App Everyday!
by MarshallBrown on 2019/10/02 19:49
I love Scanner Pro. It is so easy to use. I use it to scan and send documents nearly everyday because it automatically straightens and aligns them to all four corners, removing all distortion seen in every regular photo. It saves lots of time. The image size can be adjusted after the scan to any standard document size before printing. The scans can be named and renamed again later as needed since no two files can have the same name within the same folder. The date can even be added to the name with one simple click. Scans can be grouped together in one file or placed in multiple files for ease of locating or sending. Any image can be rescanned and replaced with a new image, or discarded altogether. After scanning, you can edit the image in several ways to clean it up oftentimes making it more legible than the original. You can easily scan color or black and white photos, text, full pages, text and images, or even handwriting such as old recipe cards. I find that indirect sunlight is the best light for scanning with this app. You can save any image in color or black & white, in either low or high resolution. Get Scanner Pro-you won’t regret it!
Owned for years; New update is nice
by ( ˘⌣˘)づ)˚з°) on 2021/01/21 12:12
Can’t say that I’m surprised to see folks complaining about the new update, as this seems to be the trend whenever something gets a makeover. Many times the negative reviews are warranted (Fantastical, Airmail — although these two screwed themselves for reasons in addition to their update rendering the apps into hot garbage). This time around, I can say that I’m not disappointed. All the claims regarding new (or kinda new) functions seem to be accurate enough, and I’m enjoying the refreshed interface, which brings the experience up to date and able to aesthetically compete with its peers. To that end, I do have one feature request, which I would be surprised to learn wasn’t already in the works: it would be great to have the ability to change the color scheme/themes, especially with many people utilizing dark mode. Multiple options would be excellent, but even seeing an option to change out blue for grey tones and/or a dark mode would make me a happy camper. Anyways, cheers to the folks over at Readdle. Keep up the good work!
Some suggestions and questions
by 韩旭旭旭旭旭 on 2018/11/26 09:22
I am one of your users and I am using Scanner pro on my iPhone. I have some suggestions and questions. 1. When I finish my scanning and I want to send the file to others directly using my iPhone, I cannot find the option "using the Airdrop" which I think is the most convenient way connected iPhones. This is question #1. 2. As a new comer to this app, I sometimes deleted files by mistake. Although the app can upload files onto the cloud storage, I still think there should be a place where we can find the files we've already deleted just like other products of yours, like PDF Expert. This can be really helpful especially when I have some important files. 3. The uploading works in a strange way sometimes that I can't understand. I always find the folders missing in my Onedrive and iCloud drive, and the files that supposed to be in those missing folders turns out to be in the primary folder. It's easy for me to delete some file in this way. 4. Still the problem of uploading. I think it better to let the files on my iPhone completely conform to ones on the Cloud disk. Sometimes I may scan one file several times to get the best one, and those files are all uploaded on to my iCloud so that I can't tell which one is the best when I open my iCloud. So the best way is that when I delete some files from my phone, they will also be deleted from my Cloud storage at the same time. I'll appreciate it if you can improve some of the problems in the next version.
Blown away
by clearly751 on 2017/10/01 03:07
I have owned this app for years and generally switched between it and Scanbot to get the best scans. I just used it again for the first time in a few months today to scan a multi-page document and I am blown away. Under fairly poor lighting conditions (at nighttime under a yellow lamp) Scanner Pro gave me a perfect OCR scan of my document. Both pages were perfectly aligned, the edges of the pages were perfectly clean, the angle looked perfect, the crease in the paper was gone, and the pages looked perfectly white even though I took the scan under yellow tinted lighting. I tested the scan’s OCR by searching a few random words (in PDF Expert) and it worked perfectly. Wow - I don’t know what secret sauce Readdle has been infusing into this app lately but it’s miles ahead of where it used to be, even though it’s always been one of the top quality scanning apps in the App Store. Bravo, Readdle! Keep it up! PDF Expert and Documents have been invaluable apps to me; I hope Readdle keeps pushing forward.
It used to be my goto scanner app...
by Mustang2066 on 2019/02/20 09:28
I used to use this app all the time to scan my important documents so that I can have them on all my devices wherever I go...Until I started having trouble accessing my documents when I needed them most. If my signal is weak then I usually can’t access all of my documents because they’re all in the cloud and not actually on my devices. Or if I can access them it takes forever to populate in the app. Just recently I had to retrieve a very important document but my signal was weak so I couldn’t retrieve it at the moment I needed it. It was very frustrating. This has happened to me several times and it’s come to the point where I just stopped using this app for scanning and I started using the Apple Notes app which has made it much easier to access what I need when I need it. And also even if I do have a decent signal it takes so very long to load up all my documents. It’s possible I just have so many documents in the app but that’s because I used it and relied on it so much until now. I really like how I can fax documents straight from this app but until these problems get fixed I’m just going to have to go elsewhere..
Best app I’ve purchased
by PinayXXIII on 2018/01/30 20:22
I bought Scanner Pro three years ago and it continues to be the most useful and convenient app I own. Being on-the-go and not always having the time or access to a scanner, this app makes it easy to scan documents in color or B&W for future reference or use. The technology is accurate in capturing the image you want or you can manually adjust borders to get more or less of the document you need. Even if distorted or taken from an angle, the app will automatically adjust the image, so words and borders are straight and clear. You can email, add to, delete or retake scans. I use it all the time. I’ve only used the fax feature once and there is a small fee to pay, but it was money well spent when I needed to emergently send documents for clinicals. I highly recommend this app. My only request from developers would be to look into being able to attach scanned documents to already existing e-mail drafts.
LOVE ease of use, flexibility and quality of documents..
by bruna831 on 2020/11/11 15:27
I really wanted to wait until I had thoroughly challenged this app and I am now ready to do a review. I am thrilled with Scanner PRO. The quality of the documents created really are as good, if not better, than the flat bed scanner on my desk. I can scan anywhere, anytime, and send as jpg or PDF file. It helps my remote communications (out of the office) look professional and crisp. I no longer use my desk scanner. This is faster and easier! I am totally amazed at the quality and pleased with the simplicity and flexibility of this app. Several times we have been onboard our boat cruising and in need of scanning a document and sending. This app just rocks! Thank you to the developers! I don't know if this makes a difference, but I use this app with both the small iPad Pro and, more frequently, with my 15" iPad Pro and even my iPhone. Awesome!!

Fantastic For An iPhone
by Dennyhayes on 2021/01/24 17:16
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the OCR needs improvement on things like receipts. I tried to scan my receipts to put into a database that can parse all of the data to the proper categories, but most receipt quality is not great. So I did some experiments to see if it was only the quality of the receipt text, because I realized that if it was totally unrecognizable it would be impossible for any OCR. So I first did a scan of the whole receipt, with yielded many mistakes. So then I used the iPhone photo app to edit the same image many times, each time cropping off areas, leaving only the text that the OCR made mistakes on. This effectively zoomed in on the text, and each time the OCR had an easier time recognizing the text. I did this multiple times, zooming in on every area of the receipts, until it had recognized the entire receipt. So, since it is obviously possible the scanner app could do something similar and end up recognizing the whole receipts.
Nearly the Perfect Business Receipts Expense Scanner
by aityena on 2019/08/28 13:26
This is the best scanner app I’ve used for capturing receipts for business expenses. The capture to black and white, and downsampling to small sizes, coupled with sharing to email (I use SAP Concur that accepts emails to directly import into the expense pipeline), make a formerly tedious process a breeze. There are a couple places in the UI that with some polish and a major enhancement will put this into “perfection” realms. Let users set a preferred email address that the email is sent FROM so there are fewer taps to share a scan in a workflow. I’d change my rating to five stars right there and be satisfied because the major enhancement is really a far reach. The major enhancement is OCR and pattern recognition, so scans get the OCR metadata optionally embedded into the PDF, and the pattern recognition senses logos/patterns and lets you use that in workflows to alter scan titles or workflow actions. Then scans of a chain restaurant receipt for example, would automatically fill in a custom title and share to a predefined email.
Almost Perfect
by tbajko on 2017/11/21 11:30
There's a lot to love about this app. It's simple, intuitive, and does a great job at recognizing pages and transforming them into quality scans. I love the custom share sheet and integration with iCloud Drive. It's almost perfect, but I'm deducting two whole stars in hopes that it'll bring attention to the fact that the app chokes when I need to scan more than a handful of pages. For example, I wanted to scan 35 whole pages yesterday. By the 8th page, the app was glitching out and slowing down on me. It was barely usable, but it worked—up until when my phone (a 7 Plus) literally overheated and rebooted. My scanned pages were still there in the app, but it was a nerve-wracking experience when I really just needed the scan done quickly and uploaded. I understand that it must take a lot of processing power for Scanner Pro to do what it does, but if I paid for a Pro app, I'd want to be able to seamlessly scan a whole bunch of pages in one go. Regardless, if your particular use case is light, you'll be satisfied with Scanner Pro.
The best scan app
by AmyB8484 on 2020/07/11 17:19
I tried several scan apps before trying this one. I thought the others would be better quality just because they made you pay for a subscription. Boy, was I wrong. I couldn’t find a scan app that both did a good job scanning without giving me a blurry mess and also let me export in both pdf and gave the option to save the image file to my camera roll. Other scanners wouldn’t let you export to camera roll even if you were paying. So I finally tried this one, which you only have to pay for once. It does an excellent job. If you’re scanning a multi-page document and one of the pages doesn’t come out right, you can just go back and rescan that page without having to rescan the whole document. It’s user-friendly, easy to use, and gives you lots of options. Has definitely made my life easier.
Absolutely Excellent App!!
by Far2hip on 2020/09/15 16:31
I’ll keep it short and simple. If you need a scanning app for your smartphone, look no further. Scanner Pro is the best one you will find for some very simple reasons. I have been using Scanner Pro basically since they first offered it on the IPhone. Through the years it has transformed into an extremely important part of my communication regimen using my smartphone. It’s easy to use, intuitive, and all of the use options are logical, handy, and just plain smart. Combine this app with PDF Expert and you have basically everything you need to scan, assemble, and edit documents on the go with all the power of an office system right in your hand. Scanner Pro has become the ONLY scanner app I recommend. Period. As a long time user from the beginning, big thanks to you folks for staying on top of the advancements with Scanner Pro!! Top shelf!!😎
Amazingly simple
by cnikkij on 2018/03/17 18:59
I never rate apps. But I had to rate this one. It’s incredible. Thank you to the other reviewers who convinced me to use this! I was using Tiny Scanner and tried iScanner. This one is perfect. It’s everything an app should be — intuitive, simple and efficient. You can have it automatically take the photos. They are very crisp. They are so easy to name and to adjust the color on. The app synced to my Dropbox effortlessly. When I upload subsequent documents to Dropbox, it pulls up the folder where I was before. Which is so great when I’m uploading lots of documents - cuts down on me having to click through all the other folders. I have a scanner on my printer 20 feet away from me, but this is so much faster and easier. I’m actually looking for more things to scan so I keep using Scanner Pro! Get it. Well worth a few bucks if you need a scanner app.
Very smooth and glitch-free
by ClarkDowd on 2019/07/10 14:07
I use Scanner Pro for the purpose of reducing the physical space taken up in my filing cabinets. I’ll soon be 59 and have a long history stuffed into boxes that I have endeavored to send through my shredder. This application is intuitive and problem-free for me. I have a suggestion regarding the filing of scanned documents that - if implemented - would make things more convenient. As it is, you can put multiple documents into a file with a name (let’s say “AUTO”), bit you cannot create subfiles within the original file. I own two vehicles and in the AUTO file, I have TRUCK documents and SUV documents as subfiles. What I would suggest is making it possible to make subfiles within the TRUCK and SUV files that I could name INSURANCE, SERVICES, FUEL, etc. But I still love this application for its ease of use and the space it’s helping make a reality.
App needs improvement
by TxCrocodile on 2018/04/20 11:08
I have owned this app and used it for years. It is nice to be able to scan all my receipts on the road. Recently more and more companies are emailing receipts and I have a need to compile these into a PDF and send them via PDF to our finance group. The problems are two fold. The only way to get the emailed receipt, whether it be a PDF or other type of document, into this app is screenshot it and then laboriously go back into the Scanner Pro app and import them into the app, where manual cropping is required. This contrasts with other scanning apps like Genius Scan which allows you to directly import them into the app itself from a menu that pops up in the actions tab (where you would forward the PDF or other document). Second problem is when the screen capture is imported, the quality is so poor that others cannot read the actual document at all. This is likely a compression problem or, more likely, a result of the Scanner Pro app trying to adjust the resolution/color to one of it’s four pre-determined resolution settings. I have asked Readdle to support the import direct function months ago with no progress shown. Therefore, I am likely making the leap to Genius Scan by Grizzly Labs until they fix these two issues. I do love Readdle apps and would easily assist them in explaining more as I truly believe they have an excellent suite of products. Problem is this is just not usable now for my circumstances.
Everything I need
by Jamills23 on 2020/02/24 17:56
I have been looking around for a good document scanner for school use for over a year. I had tried most of the free scanner apps and all of them were garbage. Some had bad interfaces, and most had a monthly fee. I wanted an app that I had to pay for once, and can do everything. This is that app. Scanning documents is easy - especially multiple paged ones. I also love how this app can automatically upload scans to a folder in my school google drive. I love this app and would easily pay 10 dollars for it. My only thing I would have to say to the developer is to make a free lite version. One so people could do like 5 scans can see if they like the app, then get the pro version. If they offers this I would have gotten this app over a year ago. I want to thank the developer(s) for making such an awesome app.
The best scanning app ever!
by Hagenx9698 on 2020/01/10 02:11
I needed a scanning application in order to send in a few documents for college. I started by first using other applications that allegedly preform the same intentions, if the other apps let you past the first page of trying to purchase a ~$50 year long contract, when trying to scan your documents you will surely be prompted with a message to continue scanning by buying one of these obscene packages. By downloading this app, sure you pay a mere ~$4 but it’s, to my knowledge, a permanent installation of the app that allows me to scan books if I wanted to. On top of the perfect price relative to current market value, the app is incredibly versatile and extremely easy to use. I very much recommend this app to anyone who needs to scan anything! Great app!
Excellent phone scanner
by MKB58 on 2018/01/23 22:46
I read a fair number of older medical journal articles that were printed before everything became available electronically, many of which I want to incorporate into my library of journal articles. I purchased TurboScan to take to the library on my phone. It wasn't doing a very good job with flash control and contrast control, etc., and backup seemed somewhat limited. I bought Scanner Pro. It takes a much better image from the get go. It has better contrast control. It has more flexible options for interfacing with OneDrive and other storage sites. I have Scanner Pro, TurboScan, Scanable, Office Lens. Scanner Pro is my favorite and the one I use most. I do like Office Lens for its white board ability.
Not for OCR Solutions (as Readdle advertises)
by WildBillWillie on 2018/10/07 02:52
Horrible, horrible, OCR no matter how polished or pre-preped the Photo is with the source text. Even very clean clear black text on white background, the app usually has errors. Poorly executed programming flow. Even if I take a snip of text, say a paragraph in the picture, it assumes the snip I just made in its crop selection is a full page. So the app, to correct for this stretches the snip. My text paragraph, is now stretched up and down in really thin lettering. Then it tries to perform OCR on this and naturally fails miserably. Just what were they thinking? Didn't anyone try their app before putting it on the store? Band-Aid fix is ...if you can guess almost exactly the dimensions of your clipped paragraph, you can punch X and Y dimensions in manually and it does better. Second-best is using the auto size feature, which on mine didn't appear as the default setting -why I don't know. And sadly, Readdle doesn't even have the workflow so that from your pictures album you could send a picture directly to OCR with a "cut" button for pasting (which is what the user is going to do next) ready to go like in other apps. Clumsy, clumsy, unusable. Not the typical Readdle Standard quality of apps. They really dropped the ball on this one. The only good thing I can applaud them on is being forward thinking and putting WebDave features in place cleared -kudos. Otherwise, it's just another scanning app.
Love the OCR for school — one suggestion
by Blurred connections on 2019/03/03 15:18
To echo more general reviews, this app rocks. I use it in conjunction with Readdle's PDF Reader for as much of my grad school reading as possible. However, here's a situation I experience often (and expect other students do, too) that this scanner could fix: My instructors will scan a book on a photo copier that flattens the image and exports to a packet pdf. The edges of the pages will show with large swaths of black space for the scan area, and I can't import this document into Scanner to use its OCR functions. Currently (and I've tried a lot of things), I have to separate each page and save them as individual jpegs in Photos for Scanner to recognize and reassemble my document. This takes forever. Please, could you add an import feature for pdf that let's us re-crop and re-OCR-scan the pages?
Frustrating App
by 2121Iawl on 2019/09/03 22:02
This app was once a terrific tool w/few quirks. But sometime last year an update turned it into one of the most frustrating, and my least favorite but necessary, app. Prior to that update, it easily took pics/scans of docs, allowing the SAME adjustments as today, easily adding additional pages w/o issue, as well as saving, uploading to Dropbox & attaching to email or messages. Now EVERY TIME I try using this app I must retake pages 3, 4 or 5 times before it keeps a pic/scan - because the darn thing simply DISAPPEARED! Then when it looks like it keeps a shot, it disappears when editing - even after saving the darn thing! Oh boy, I've been trying other scanning apps, but others are much more cumbersome & not so intuitive. So until I find that elusive app that is easy, intuitive AND works properly, I'm stuck with this one. Too bad, they used to have a good thing!
Too buggy currently
by BrassEdge on 2019/12/09 13:36
I’ve used ScannerPro for years and loved it, but recently it’s become far too buggy for me to use. It sometimes has a hard time reading my file system and requires a full restart of my device, sometimes runs fairly slow, a few times was not getting in focus, but the worst is when it started crashing in the middle of a 100-page scan and forced me to start over. Not to mention the file management isn’t the best, at least when syncing with cloud drive. If I want to rename them on my cloud drive or move files around, it won’t update or sync between the drive and what’s stored locally on ScannerPro. If you can fix at least the bugs I’m suddenly running into, this will once again be my go-to scamming app. Currently, however, I’m looking for a replacement.
What happened?
by ShevchukD on 2017/10/17 15:31
Used this scanner all the time. The app always recognized the edges of the paper with no problems at all. But for some reason after ios 11 came out it recognizes the edges very poorly. Now no matter how perfectly I position the document I need to scan, I still need to crop the edges manually after the picture is taken what wasn’t the case before. In the past my conspiracy brain always made me feel that as soon as the new iphone comes out my older model starts to perform noticeably worse. Now I can’t shake off the feeling that since in new ios scanner is available natively from the notes app, the 3rd party apps will slowly start to die off. Although to be fair I don’t see that much comments here that are complaining about poor performance of the app, so who knows, maybe it’s only an issue on my phone.
So far so good
by Bobalinka on 2017/10/25 01:53
So far really liking this app a lot. I was using tiny scanner before this and I felt it scanned everything pretty well. The problem with tiny scanner was that it didn't work with Google Drive. It even started to have a problem with drop box. I like to be able to store me scans in the cloud and it was really frustrating. Now with this app I am having no problems uploading to any of the cloud storage places. It has been working seamlessly. So happy! Scans great too. Really cool thing they do is send you 7 short lessons on how to get the most out of this app. Loved it!! Didn't have to spend hours figuring everything out. So far one of the few apps I spent money on that I felt was worth it!!!
Best of the best! Still love it!
by AshleyZM on 2017/08/22 00:47
4th review - still the best!! And I'm one to always dl new things looking for better apps, but I never bother with any scanner apps. This is one my employees have to download because I don't want ugly scans in our files. OCR works beautifully. Love that you can choose to do that later by editing a scan. That's really cool. Developers, keep up the great work! Years later, my review below still stands. Except the app gets better and better! Yay!! Sooo convenient!! This scanner truly works better than all the others. Trust me, I tested all of them!! So much easier/faster than using the printer's scanner and has a great quality. Document image quality is outstanding. Syncing makes it even faster.
Works great
by Andyc1110 on 2017/08/26 14:20
It hasn't disappointed yet. This app does everything one would expect out of a scanner app. I rarely scanned documents before getting this app about 6 months ago. It was a pain. Whether I used my desktop scanner or the photocopier down the hall it was guaranteed to take at least five minutes. Now I can have the same quality image I would expect from our photocopier using this app instead. It is quick, intuitive, and produces documents I feel comfortable using as a professional. On top of that it interacts flawlessly with my Gmail and Dropbox accounts, making it much more powerful than any other scanning option I have. This is very empowering software.
Scanner Pro
by hyamlcSP on 2019/09/06 02:41
I did a big scanning job for a court case. There were many pages of all different sizes. Some pages were 2 sided. This job was deemed impossible with a regular desktop scanner that could not accommodate small pages mixed with larger pages nor could it determine if a page was 2-sided. I used the basic Scanner Pro software to scan everything. This was several years ago and as I recall there were several thousand odd sized pages and the job took about 2-1/2 days. I just set up a work station and was able to rapidly flip and snap the pages. The small pages and 2-sided pages were under my control while I flipped and snapped. The job went smoothly.
Best in class
by [Name withheld] on 2018/09/21 14:20
This is the best scanning app I have tried—and I have tried a dozen or so! For the 70% of the time that distortion removal works, it is great! Two small complains with an otherwise stellar product: 1. App is inconsistent in how it deals with shadows on the page. Unfortunately, this is a constant annoyance as there are almost always some shadows unless you have improbably perfect light—in which case, you probably have better options for scanning than an iPhone! The result is that about 10% of pages require a retake or two before a clean scan is obtained—and maybe 5% of pages require a half-dozen tries to even get an acceptable scan, never mind a good one. Considering how hard it is to find lighting where the phone itself does not cast a shadow on the page, the app should handle this better—on this it is clearly behind others. 2. App can be quite badly behaved with longer documents. Somewhere around around 15-20 pages, app sometimes crashes. Fortunately data seems usually to be preserved so you can pick up where you left off but it is annoying. Some rough edges notwithstanding, this remains the best scanning app I have so far found.
A full-fledged, totally portable desk scanner!
by PerfumeFactory on 2019/08/17 19:32
My default hobby is digital document control, 49,000 family and biz documents scanned and full-text indexed over 30 years. Preserving history & running the company with totally efficient control & retrieval. ScannerPro app exceeds ANY desk scanning software; HP, Canon, all of them in features! It includes decent level OCR. And you always have it handy in your pocket, which is a major asset for on the spot, books & magazines, things that don't move, & places like museums. The quality depends on your device, iPhone it's superb. You'll be amazed at B&W document scanning; crisp, full-size resolution, almost always better than the original. Just snapping a photo doesn't compare.
Super! Recommend to everyone!
by ggarci on 2020/07/12 23:21
I love this app! I use it for everything I need to scan. At school, work , or home, I always come to this program to help scan something that is important or something I need to remember. For example, if I have papers for a meeting, I’ll scan them just in case something happens to my copies. There’s been times I forgot my copies at home, but was glad I scanned them. I can edit and export it. I usually export it to my pdf app. I though I would stop using it because of Apple’s update, but nope. This is better than anything else I have tried. Also, they have always been working on keeping it updated and improving it periodically.
Uncomplicated Receipts
by CT MD on 2019/08/27 13:02
The image quality for scanned receipts is excellent, and it’s very fast and easy to upload the scans to the cloud. I use this App primarily to scan my receipts, immediately after I make a credit card transaction, usually while I’m still standing at the cash register. Then, I upload the scanned receipt directly to my Microsoft OneDrive and my Scanner Pro folder. Later, I attach the scanned receipt to either a QuickBooks or Quicken expense line item in my credit card account register. It makes life exceedingly less complicated when you don’t have to handle (and then handle again) paper receipts. This App makes that bookkeeping process painless.
Love this app!
by klueamrung on 2020/07/23 14:54
This is by far the best scanning app! I use it everyday to scan and send docs. Extremely easy to use! I did have an issue with the app freezing up. I contacted customer support and received a response within 24hrs and was given instructions on how to fix the issue. Works perfect once again. I have been using this app for years and never had issues. Alina with customer support just made me love it that much more! Thank you for creating an app that is beneficial to my everyday business needs that truly works! Thank you for having such a wonderful customer support team that takes care of issues immediately.
Awesome app!
by lmperez13 on 2019/12/27 16:02
ScannerPro is super helpful for digitizing your life. The camera will automatically detect the edges of your document and give you the option to correct it if necessary. Other tools, like the brightness and contrast, help you get the most clarity out of your scan, and once you’re finished, you can upload it directly to your cloud of choice or just keep save it to the app. One of my favorite features is that it allows me to navigate my Google Drive and save my documents to the right folder, all within the app. As a student, ScannerPro has been an awesome alternative to lugging around textbooks and syllabi. I highly recommend it!
Beautiful Scanner Update Crashing OneDrive Uploads
by DahiliaDiamonds77_7 on 2019/10/11 05:27
I have enjoyed this app the first time it was shown to me. I used it daily for receipts, documents, and sharing directly to my computer with OneDrive. It has great options to for scanned documents. Only problem is since I updated the app I can no long upload through it receiving error “Authorization Failed”, “The operation couldn’t be completed. (RSGenericOnlineClientErrorDomain Error2). Can we please this problem fixed it was my go to upload and now have to rely on Dropbox again which doesn’t have the same feel. Anyway great app just a minor dysfunction that I hope can be resolved. Took screenshot from my iPhone X and am hoping to return to my daily paths.
The Standard For [Mobile] Scanning
by MobileBusinessPro on 2019/04/12 06:44
Before discovering this app a few years ago I used Cam Scanner. It got the job done I suppose but this app is loaded with features, it's simple to use, and since I always have my phone handy, it's the most convenient and my preferred method of scanning. Readdle has almost created the perfect scanning app. The only feature I would like to see is an option to import PDFs directly in order to access the powerful OCR capabilities of this app. When yahoos send me terrible PDFs I can't copy / paste from I find myself converting the PDF pages to .jpg, throwing them in my photo gallery, importing the images to Scanner Pro, and exporting a PDF I can actually work with. If you’re considering using this app just save yourself the trouble and buy the entire Readdle suite now because I promise you... you'll eventually own it anyway. Once you use app this company creates you'll fall in love. Quit delaying the inevitable and buy it before they figure out how awesome they are and start charging what they're actually worth.
Loved at first but extremely frustrated
by mrsscheely on 2019/08/24 03:49
I’ve loved this app for awhile but several mistakes have left me extremely frustrated. I use this app to scan important documents, and now several times when I go back to find the scans, they have all been wiped. They weren’t uploaded to Google Drive or another app, they’re just gone. Last time I tried to upload a document to Google drive just in case it wiped it on me again, and sure enough, they were gone when I went back for them. They didn’t upload to Google Drive like I thought it did, and they’re gone. Maybe I’m missing something, but I’ve looked everywhere they could possibly be and they're no where to be found. I like the app, but I can’t trust it with important documents. Seriously disappointed and extremely frustrated
Super Scanner
by Robert7N on 2017/12/15 20:14
This is the "holy grail" of iOS scanning. It's unmatchable in the mobile Scanner Apps. I wish there was a BlackBerry version too. It basically makes all scanner apps look like toys. However I cannot give it 5 stars. Why? Because to give 5 stars is to imply that it is equal to other 5 star scanner apps. I give 7 stars! This is all I ever need for my perfect scans. I have tried some top name apps to do anything better than this but there is none out there. NONE. I have even paid for apps more expensive than Scanner Pro only to end up deleting them. I cannot have the second best for what I do. I need the BEST and this is it.
Wonderful scanner tool
by FrequentlyDineOut on 2017/07/30 15:22
This apps provides great features that help my two continuous needs for a scanner. First it gives me PDF versions of my business receipts to use to file my expenses. This was my initial reason due selecting the application. Once I had it I realized it could replace my large scanner and fax machine for the day-to-day family needs such as kids sports registration forms, government document requests, and forms needed by my tax attorney. Great app for anything requiring my signature. Easy to use, allows you to save the scanned documents for future use, and has built in connection to email to easily send the scanned images.
Fantastic
by Kslug on 2017/10/06 16:37
I've been using this app on both my iPhone and my iPad for about two years now. In short, I love it! I travel frequently for work. This simple app allows me to scan receipts and convert them into .pdfs on the go, as I receive them, which makes documentation expense reports super easy to generate - way easier than looking for/using a scanner while traveling. Same goes for signing hard-copy documents while traveling - print, sign, scan, email - all from your mobile device. I highly recommend downloading this app for anyone whose mobile device is often his/her office space. 👍
Going Downhill
by LoveSammie on 2017/11/01 13:13
This app used to be perfect for in the moment at home, and quick on-the-go scanning. Not sure if it was after the iOS 11 update, or a random bug, but now there is discoloration and distortion on almost all edges of the scan. When taking the photo and within the first preview, it’s normal. Once moving to the last step to save, the distortion appears. My phone froze for almost 10 minutes last night while trying to use the app. Had no issues at all before launching it. Tried again this morning, app was very sluggish, and I had to accept the distortion on the page today as the document was urgent. Issue needs to be fixed or I’ll have to move on to something else for scanning.
I LOVE THIS APP!
by eupatorium on 2017/09/19 00:11
I am an older law student and the casebooks are too much to carry around...and they're not all available as e-books. I was sad when the pics I took of the pages with the iPad were too uneven to use....and thrilled when I got ScannerPro! ScannerPro makes the pages look great despite inadequate lighting and the warping of the image from being in an open book. I then save the page images in a file folder in the same company's Documents app, and I can read them just like a book. I even underline and mark on the pages with the Apple Pencil in the Documents app. It's wonderful, and it's saved my back!
Spent a few minutes testing...
by Stevearcher on 2018/02/03 19:34
Did a comparison of the several paid scanner apps I own, scanning identical print under the same lighting. Of course, they all essentially worked. But Scanner Pro was the fastest to successfully frame the image, automatically cleaning it up. Then when I pressed the text button (sheepishly admitting to never having noticed it before), the printed copy was INSTANTLY OCR'd! And formatted correctly! As usual, Readdle in one of the most dependable productivity app developers in the Apple Store. (And I have no connection with them other than being a satisfied user of most of their products.)
This has proven to be the best scanner app
by ccfowler on 2019/09/22 20:33
I have been using this app for years, and it is so good and handy that I almost never use my “real” scanner anymore. Whether it is scanning to jpeg or PDF formats, it is consistently excellent with my iPhone X and before that with my iPhone 6 Plus. I can’t recall when I last used my “real” scanner. This app is also excellent for scanning for OCR, but so far, I haven’t used that functionality much but when I do, I prefer using it to the OCR on my Windows computer. I haven’t used the OCR functionalities on my Linux computer yet, so I’m not sure which may prove to be the best for my needs.
I Want to Work at Readdle!
by MatthewAV on 2017/11/08 06:22
ScannerPro is stable, feature-rich, and indispensable. This is a powerful app. • It produces scan-quality images, not just camera snapshots of documents. • ScannerPro “Workflows” are like R2D2 assistants. After an easy (and powerfully connected to cloud storage) setup, they upload your files into the safety of the cloud with one tap. (You can automate them; and even keep copies on your device.) • It’s a powerful app—don’t be scared of needing to read instructions. • The ScannerPro in-app Help and email support are reliable. • Behind strong in-app password and privacy protection, I have entire medical forms on my device and safely in the cloud; so I have access to all my info while I’m talking with the doctor. • I have vital legal documents, service contracts, and warranties easily accessible and safely in the cloud. • Readdle releases only meaningful updates to ALL of their apps and ScannerPro updates follow that policy. • I have purchased EVERY app Readdle has created. Readdle apps really have changed MY life.
Game-changer for this working musician
by Bmon64 on 2017/07/29 20:35
I'm a professional guitarist who works in a variety of different bands and situations, and I'm constantly learning new music for gigs. I've used an iPad for reading sheet music since shortly after it was released in 2010. Scanner Pro has created a great workflow for capturing printed music and getting it into my preferred sheet music PDF app, ForScore. Scanner Pro's automatic scanning features work extremely well and it does a good job of de-skewing and converting the scanned pages to black-and-white. As I capture them, the pages are saved directly to dropbox, where I can easily import them into ForScore.
This is the one
by Bob and the Owl on 2019/09/03 15:20
Over the past few years I’ve tried just about every scanning app in the App Store and this one is the one with all of the features and intelligence I need. I can scan a 20 page document, rename it, and email it in less than 2 minutes, on the go. It has folders to organize all your documents which is perfect for what I use it for. The UI is still a little clumsy (trying to drag documents into the folders) it would be fantastic if that was rearranged to be a bit smoother. Otherwise, this is one of the top 5 apps I use every day.
Working well thank you
by Poepol2 on 2020/06/30 16:57
This app has changed a lot, and works much better now. I purchased it a few years back, in mean time got a new phone and it came up as paid for while searching for a scan app ... how lucky I am! And the reason I searched for it was that the other one I tried to use just was too “unfriendly”! Too many limitations. So when this came up, I remembered that I had it but never uploaded again onto new phone. Truly the best scan app. Easy to use, works like a charm. Thanks for being able to transfer to new phone. It makes me happy!!
Works good. It's my go to scanner for iPhone
by iPhone 4 pinky hold? OMG on 2019/08/20 19:57
Works very good IMHO. Pretty good interface. Excellent quality—- all my scans even the ones from years ago ( from different Iphones) are still there.- I never migrated them myself- they just seem to flawlessly follow my phone every time I get a new phone which is a huge plus for me) It's my go to mobile scanner for iPhone. Use mostly for work- I own a real estate brokerage so this comes in handy when I don't want to pay a $1 a page to have copies made. Also to note- I've used on full sized house plans- even works good on them. If it's something you'll use frequently- I don't see how you can go wrong. I’m a Realtor, Broker, Landlord and Investor in real estate and I use this app almost daily. Very satisfied — I tell everyone about it. Device used with: iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, IPhone 6, Iphone 7 and now my iPhone 8plus They have all worked flawlessly- and I even have my very first scan. Can’t ask for more. Best few bucks I ever spent in the Apple App Store for sure. Paul Maine, USA

Beautiful Magic
by Alex Dunber on 2021/01/26 07:13
This app has been great for years, but the recent update is bliss to use. Automatic page sizes, capture, and upload.
Horrible now
by Johnny465 on 2021/01/26 02:06
Crashes constantly.
Loved it - now frustrated by it
by zombiwoman on 2021/01/25 15:48
Another great app ‘improved’ beyond actual ease of use. I used to be able to open, center, scan, save - boom done. There are now additional, CONFUSING, steps which are non-intuitive. ☹️
Just gets better and better over time
by Douglas in Deerfield on 2021/01/24 20:05
I have used this application for many years. Works great and worth every penny.
Terrible, horrible new version
by Yusuf VA on 2021/01/24 18:01
Please please please bring back old version 7. Never update again. It worked flawlessly. Now no functionality is working. It is crashing everywhere. ICloud One drive syncing is horrible and not working. It had been 3-4 months and developers are not able fix as of today. Several IPS files and logs were sent to no resolution as of today Jan 18, 2021. Very important to note to keep out of big mess of ICloud drive sync. It creates duplicates of file every time you open it. I had 360 files now I have 18000 filed. Each file has 55 duplicates renaming adding number 1 to 55. Basically I launched this app 55 times during two weeks time so created duplicate each time it was opened. It’s taking me days to clean up ICloud folder.
Fantastic For An iPhone
by Dennyhayes on 2021/01/24 17:16
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the OCR needs improvement on things like receipts. I tried to scan my receipts to put into a database that can parse all of the data to the proper categories, but most receipt quality is not great. So I did some experiments to see if it was only the quality of the receipt text, because I realized that if it was totally unrecognizable it would be impossible for any OCR. So I first did a scan of the whole receipt, with yielded many mistakes. So then I used the iPhone photo app to edit the same image many times, each time cropping off areas, leaving only the text that the OCR made mistakes on. This effectively zoomed in on the text, and each time the OCR had an easier time recognizing the text. I did this multiple times, zooming in on every area of the receipts, until it had recognized the entire receipt. So, since it is obviously possible the scanner app could do something similar and end up recognizing the whole receipts.
Used to be a good app (2021-01-23)
by jpiszcz1 on 2021/01/23 10:51
App frequently crashes or hangs up, AFTER you scan everything in. Then when you reopen the app it’s gone. When this problem is fixed the app will shoot back to #1 place for the best scanning app.
Takes three times as long to scan now
by AMIC97 on 2021/01/22 18:56
The new scanning functionality is horrible. The auto mode is too quick to snap a scan and even when I think the paper is in the box after it scans it still has the surrounding table around it and I can’t figure out how to remove that without just trying the scan multiple times before it finally crops it correctly. Please restore the old functionality.
Hate latest update!!!
by Chief_1 on 2021/01/22 16:28
Scans used to be quick and easy. Now, with latest update, you have to crop each page, which sometimes works and mostly doesn’t!!! Takes longer to scan documents!
How do I cancel the app to do t get charge

Buggy
by lilmikeinfiniti on 2021/01/22 03:38
Sometimes you can rename a folder sometimes you can’t, this needs to be fixed. Search engine sometimes can find stuff sometimes can’t, this needs to be fixed. Need to be able to add Folds inside Folds.
Pay attention to latest feedback
by coyote96 on 2021/01/21 20:45
I used this app ALL THE TIME... for years... was 5 stars easily... last update has made it less than 1 star (if I could give that). Locks up and crashes constantly... most of the time I can’t take one photo without having to close the app and reopen. It’s trash now, and for some reason no one is addressing it. SO FRUSTRATING! Guess I’m on the lookout for a new one now 🤷🏼‍♂️
Owned for years; New update is nice
by ( ˘⌣˘)づ)˚з°) on 2021/01/21 12:12
Can’t say that I’m surprised to see folks complaining about the new update, as this seems to be the trend whenever something gets a makeover. Many times the negative reviews are warranted (Fantastical, Airmail — although these two screwed themselves for reasons in addition to their update rendering the apps into hot garbage). This time around, I can say that I’m not disappointed. All the claims regarding new (or kinda new) functions seem to be accurate enough, and I’m enjoying the refreshed interface, which brings the experience up to date and able to aesthetically compete with its peers. To that end, I do have one feature request, which I would be surprised to learn wasn’t already in the works: it would be great to have the ability to change the color scheme/themes, especially with many people utilizing dark mode. Multiple options would be excellent, but even seeing an option to change out blue for grey tones and/or a dark mode would make me a happy camper. Anyways, cheers to the folks over at Readdle. Keep up the good work!
Why did you screw it up?!
by GG Dasher on 2021/01/21 05:23
This app WAS perfect. I had this on about half a dozen devices and recommended it to a dozen friends and then after the last update the app CRASHES EVERY TIME I use it. Whyyyyyy?!!
Well done

Ruined a perfectly good app

Bad update.

Was a great app latest update makes it unusable. Don’t buy until they fix it.
Keeps crashing
by ELF! on 2021/01/18 20:22
Used this for years and recommended it to everyone but the most recent update has rendered it almost useless. Please fix
Not better but worse
by BassaBoy on 2021/01/17 23:23
I think the app is piss off because I didn’t give it access to all my photos instead I choose “Select Photo”. Importing from Photos to this app has gotten slow and buggy. I selected six photos to import in to scanner pro and I hung up on the fourth photo. After twenty minutes, I closed the app and reopen, I saw only 3 photos. I repeated the import task for the other three photos and It got hung up on the second photo. Only one photo go imported, basically the it was the same problem . This is exactly why I have stop buying third-party app. These app developer can afford to buy an iDevice of every to test their app on just to be sure customers don’t get inconvenience. Instead I think they choose to take huge risk guided by greed but, its all at the expense of the customer so, what do they care. Please fix when you feel sorry for me. Thank you.

What happened?
by presto211 on 2021/01/17 21:57
What once took me less than a minute just took me more than five (let’s call it 10 now since I felt compelled to vent my frustration here). Latest update issues: - Have to toggle Find Borders/Select All an extra time before document is properly cropped - Unable to edit title when sharing to Evernote - Insists upon adding new photo/scan to a grouping with previous photo (even if previous photo is nearly a year old)
What Happened to this app?
by Stevesmith16546 on 2021/01/16 23:49
I’ve used this app for years. I love it! What did you do to it. The last update is totally useless. It crashes all the time. I should say each and every time I use it. Please fix it, I really don’t want to find a new app but will have to since this one is totally useless.
Exceeded Expectations
by Winston Percy on 2021/01/16 21:25
I use this app very frequently. It’s great to capture quick pieces on information or something you need to go on the go. I can also see how this could be used for work purposes. I’ve used this to save greeting cards and take pictures of needed documents. I love how it automatically knows where the photo/document starts and ends. It takes a quick snapshot and it’s always spot on. I would recommend this to everyone.
Can’t rename documents
by MyFavoriteToy on 2021/01/15 23:22
This app scans well and is reasonably intuitive but for the life of me I can’t figure out how to rename the scanned documents. They save with the date as name. Also I’ve had trouble sharing in texts and emails.
Super hard and not intuitive to use after last updates
by Ioana Galu on 2021/01/15 16:09
I am disappointed by the last updates that made it impenetrable to use. Please please please change these back, it doesn’t get hip or modern, just annoying, and now I am looking for another scanner app. You messed it up!!
WHY DID YOU CHANGE IT?
by GunnyHighway636262 on 2021/01/14 23:22
This WAS an amazing app. The recent “update” makes it unusable. It used to automatically crop out everything BUT the documents you are trying to scan. It no longer does so you will now see the desk or whatever your document is sitting on in the scan. Make it look very unprofessional. Also, it used to scan very clear copies, the resolution is absolutely terrible now. It was literally a perfect app before. Not anymore.
APP KEEPS CRASHING
by pgetta11 on 2021/01/14 06:45
THE CURRENT VERSION IS WORTHLESS. THE APP KEEPS FREEZING WHILE I’M SCANNING. NOT VERY EFFICIENT.
BROKEN
by DTrib on 2021/01/13 03:23
This latest update RUINED one of my favorite apps for productivity. The auto function is too sensitive, glitchy, and inconsistent. The app is currently trash. Do not buy until this is fixed. So disappointed.
Sooo useful.
by Sixcrows on 2021/01/13 01:56
I have been using this app to scan and fax documents to an attorney for the past year. It has worked perfectly, and has saved me from a mountain of aggravation. A+
Please, Fix the Bugs.
by felipemcardoso on 2021/01/11 01:44
Even after recent update, app continues to crash often when scanning multiple pages. This is not acceptable and makes the users to lose the trust on the app.
Straight to the point
by GeorgeB977 on 2021/01/10 17:19
Sometimes, while in a hurry to send documents...this app comes extremely in handy. 5 Star for the interface and usefulness.
Scanner Pro Updates are Horrible
by Zeekbag on 2021/01/10 02:01
I used to live this app, used it almost daily and recommended it to many. Then they changed a good thing, it takes me twice as many clicks to do the same thing, removed features and it even fails to save sometimes after I’ve done all the work of scanning and naming a document. Very frustrating. If I don’t see an improvement, I’ll be looking for a new scanner app.
High quality. Very useful.
by gappenstance on 2021/01/09 23:52
This app is great. I use it to scan receipts or text documents to read later. Lots of organizations options and the text capture is sharper than first-party options. Grab it today!
Love it
by huangxiaohuo on 2021/01/09 23:45
Very handy, easy to use, and really helps me a lot with my work. Highly recommend it!
Keeps Crashing after iOS 14.4
by smf30040 on 2021/01/09 16:01
Using latest version 8.0.3. The app does not consistently work well when scanning a JPG from existing iPhone photos. I’ve been using this app for many years and it always worked flawlessly whether it was a JPG or OCR scan. Now I’m lucky if it will scan one photo at a time into PDF. It now almost always crashes if attempting to scan more than one JPG file at a time. Please fix!
Gray app but notice lately that cropping doesn’t save
by Mecsor on 2021/01/08 19:01
This app is good but now when you crop an image it does not save it. It defaults back to its original crop. Please check
Update?
by NeenaMary on 2021/01/07 17:48
Has there been an update in the last week? Suddenly, the app freezes a lot.
The app has been crashing
by Raffikio on 2021/01/07 16:47
I love this app, however it’s been two separate occasions now that the app crashes when I open it . . . Not efficient. Please fix and this is a 5 star app
Scan compression
by M-Moazami on 2021/01/07 14:59
Hi Thank you for your high availability applications I’m interested to ask if it’s possible to add facility that let me choose which of my scans should be compressed. Now you have this for all my scans, but sometimes I need image quality. Thanks Best regards. M-R Moazami
I used to love this app
by MHamm5 on 2021/01/06 18:55
I used this app for my kids’ online school for months and it was fantastic. Then they updated it and now it crashes ALL THE TIME. I have to rescan my kids’ work all the time and it is constantly just shutting off. It’s very frustrating.
You broke it.
by Arcticblew on 2021/01/06 17:27
Have been using this great app for years. Recently the auto scan struggles to get the correct border. I have to constantly manually adjust... using iPhone 12 pro
Great app. Horrible syncing.
by Juniorraz on 2021/01/06 00:31
This used to be a great app but has serious problems syncing via iCloud. With the latest version, I also can no longer scan since the app freezes after taking a scan and crashes. This is with the iPhone 12 Pro and latest version of scannerpro.
New release is so unstable. I used to love it
by Arafesd on 2021/01/05 17:44
This new release is so buggy and it crashes all the time. Readdle team: pls fix this ASAP or I am moving on to another app. I use this every day at least I try to.
This app was awesome
by $lip on 2021/01/05 16:56
Recent updates have made it extremely buggy on my iPhone 11. The pdf looks fine in the app but when exported it cuts pages in half. I have auto crop turned off and it still crops AFTER the export.
Crap !
by crackhead365 on 2021/01/05 16:34
This app used to be perfect, but after the last update I lost three years of files !!
Used to be good
by luminusjohn on 2021/01/05 14:09
I would have rated this five stars but they overhauled the app and changed a bunch of things. It worked perfectly fine before, never had any issues. Now I can’t even manually a capture an image if the phone is facing down parallel to the document.
Used to be amazing. Now it’s broken.
by daneboe on 2021/01/05 07:23
I’ll change my review if the devs fix the app. It worked perfectly for years. They recently updated it and now it’s a broken mess. Crashes CONSTANTLY. So much so that it’s unusable.
Excellent, convenient
by sherryvt on 2021/01/04 04:55
User friendly- couldn’t do without it!
Deleted Data
by s6567 on 2021/01/04 01:20
7 hours of scanning memories and this app deleted them and all other previous scans. and deleted backups from the cloud too. dont release an update if its not ready.
Buggy, crashes, Randomly turns off iCloud sync
by a student and reviewer on 2021/01/03 23:36
Used it with iCloud, one day all the data in folders is there, the next day all of the scanner pro folders disappeared. After a panic I realized it had turned off iCloud sync without any notice. After turning it back on the docs reappear but each time this happens (randomly several times per day) they need to be re-indexed. Despite all of the highly positive reviews of this app, I find that it is not particularly careful with your data.
No longer allows adjusting to exact image
by are nicknames necessary? on 2021/01/03 20:21
A recent upgrade has “fixed” a non-existent problem, and you can no longer manually adjust the corners OR the final ratio of the image! No matter where you put the borders, no matter what custom (correct), size you choose, scanner pro now sets everything to their defaults. Good system for amateurs only, who don’t need specific images of documents. This worked great for years. I do NOT recommend this as it exists.
iCloud Sync Needs Improvement
by jeffkmeng on 2021/01/03 02:14
The scanning functionality of this app is great. However, trying the iCloud sync feature makes the app unusable. Each time you start the app, it freezes (and presumably downloads all your files off of iCloud) for multiple minutes before you can scan anything. How hard is it it to make the app sync your files with iCloud in the background?
Helpful App!
by Abigail M. Radis on 2021/01/02 18:05
This app is very helpful and easy to use!
Literally great
by Jaredr21 on 2021/01/02 05:46
The closest scan app to perfect is this one by Readdle. Scanner pro is functionally solid and is leagues above all other competitors. Readdle is quickly becoming a real contender with Omni as being the best Mac and iOS developer. I hope they move on to Mac apps soon.m Edit: 1/1/2021 - Best app ever but newest upgrade is very buggy. Hope you guys can get it fixed soon. Thanks!
Developers, help!
by operaman1 on 2021/01/02 03:31
I am a musician, and have used this app constantly, filing my music in organized folders in scanner pro. After this update, ALL my folders are GONE, with THOUSANDS of pieces of music! WHERE DID THEY GO?!? PLEASE HELP!
Crashes constantly
by FinancialAid on 2020/12/31 07:12
Since I updated this scanner app, it crashes constantly. It will not upload my documents to Google Drive on WiFi. This app is frustrating now.
What happened???
by Oohrah17 on 2020/12/30 01:01
Version 8 is almost useless. Crashes, bugs, UX requires more steps... I want Version 7 back, it was awesome and reliable.
Total crap with last update
by Donitan on 2020/12/29 19:57
Since the last update, this app is useless. Don’t buy!!

Lots of bugs on new version
by Calguy587 on 2020/12/28 23:06
Older version was almost crash proof. The new version does have a lot of good features on it. However it tends to crash often and will not scan on the first try (shows processing and never finishes)
App useless on iOS 13
by 99bb on 2020/12/28 20:29
New update works great on my phone (on iOS 14), but now results in horrible unusable quality when creating a scan from existing photos on iOS 13 on my older iPad. Hope this gets fixed
Now useless
by JeffD01 on 2020/12/27 14:50
This app worked great until the last update. I can no longer use the scans in Paperport as the scanned documents freeze in Paperport. Now completely useless. Please fix the app.
Great when it works.
by tddpalmer on 2020/12/26 20:10
Buggy. Works well when it is functioning. However, it has been a crap shoot everyday whether it will work. I have been in contact with app support and restarting my phone tends to be the solution. I need something reliable and thus far, this app is not.
Ruined App with update
by Golf4278 on 2020/12/26 19:00
Used this app everyday until update. It’s crashes as soon as it opens. Time to move on I guess.
It was much better before
by esmailbytarrr on 2020/12/25 20:50
Now with the last update it is worse. I’m sorry. Although I crop it manually, still it crops the page automatically like “it wants”... I’m disappointed. I was big fan of the app. Even when I have Android phone, I still use this app on iOS since there’s no android version of it.
Best app ever
by alielbagdadi on 2020/12/25 10:05
Thank uuu for this app .. its really helped me in my work 🤞🏽🤞🏽
Beat scanner App!
by Fergusexec on 2020/12/24 16:15
I have been using this app for several years for scanning to archive, fax, email, text, send, business and personal use. Makes excellent clear and cleaned up scans. Can’t say enough, love it!
Excelente APP

Esta APP es excelente y fácil de utilizar. Tiene muchas opciones y es gratis.
Excellent scanner!
by Love it! 👍🏼 on 2020/12/23 03:41
I even scan professional reports with this product. Plus, once I figured it out initially, it’s now a piece of cake. Shadows are gone with the black and white option. Give it a try; it’s worth it.
Great app

What happened?
by choctalian on 2020/12/22 16:30
I have loved this scanner for a few years, now. But this recent update has made scanning nearly impossible. It’s my hope that you all will work this glitch out really soon.
App freezes on new update.
by SammyReza on 2020/12/22 15:52
Whats the point of paying for a pro membership if the app keeps freezing on you after scanning a few pages? Switch to Adobe which is more reliable. Please fix this or refund my subscription. Extremely frustrated.
Bad “upgrade”
by RJ382 on 2020/12/22 05:36
Completely useless after upgrade. No longer crops images.

Why mess with success!! This new version is always crashing and I have to resume any documents from scratch! Also, PDFs are ‘disappearing’ and nowhere to be found😡😡😡
With update I am unable to rotate
by RoccocoJoe on 2020/12/22 01:20
With this update, I have lost the ability to rotate my scan. I will admit it’s scanning much faster. I’m also now unable to upload to Dropbox. It keeps failing. Ok, I found out how to rotate. It was hidden behind crop. Still can upload to Dropbox. I wound up emailing to myself.
Buggy 🙁
by co_biker on 2020/12/21 21:22
Was great until the last update. Now it freezes every time I try to scan.
Useless since the upgrade
by varzen on 2020/12/21 17:29
This is my go to app for scanning document (I try to be as Paperless as I can) and auto upload to my preferred cloud storage. Since the last update, scans have a bluish tint and it tries to find edges of larger text. What a mess!!!
Absolutely useless for a 12 Pro Max running iOS 14
by Donkeydonkdonk72 on 2020/12/21 16:25
Not sure how developers could let a once great app slip into uselessness but they did. This app worked fine before the update and now all I get is a black screen when I try to scan a documentZ it’s like it doesn’t have camera permissions when in fact it does. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled. Absolutely useless Readdle. Maybe I’ll come back when your developers start caring about the product again.
Recent update deleted all prior scans.
by Ashok Krishnan on 2020/12/21 04:49
Great app. But the recent update seems to have completely cleared out all prior scans. What a loss! :-(
Useless since the upgrade!
by globile on 2020/12/20 10:36
I never write reviews but I just can’t understand how they shipped such a buggy and poorly tested version. App crashes all the time halfway thru a scanning session. Stalls sporadically when taking a pic or simply you get a black screen and crash. Uploads fail and return null errors with no way to clear them. They removed functionality such as the document name history suggestion option which enabled you to use previous names as templates as well as add dates easily. Overall a big step backwards. Already looking for an alternative.
Was Great - Now Terrible
by No iPad, fool? on 2020/12/19 22:23
This app used to be fantastic. It was reliable, quick to automatically capture pages, didn’t crash. I’ve used it for years and it was fine. Recent updates have been terrible. The UX has gotten worse, the automatic capture works badly, the app locks up. Truly terrible.
Love this app
by joeledwards on 2020/12/19 20:14
Fantastic scanner app. Use it almost every day for personal and work documents. Lots of great features that work flawlessly. Highly recommend this app.
All my files disappeared

Terrific app
by Dtwguy65 on 2020/12/18 22:08
I’ve used and loved this app for years. It was the best scanning app! Now, it stinks. It freezes. It’s not intuitive. It often doesn’t focus. Renaming docs has become more effort. Yeah. They added some useless whiz bang features. But at the expense of a great and reliable app experience.

Years Gone By
by sorry4ever on 2020/12/18 19:03
It’s been years since I’ve used this app. I stopped using it and had deleted it from my phone since sometime between the time I purchased it and 2016. I deleted it because I was not happy with it. The only thing is that it’s been so long I have forgotten why I stopped using it. It’s possible that I deleted it because Apple switched to iCloud and I couldn’t use iCloud because I was afraid that one of my other app’s data would end up in the hands of the developers. It’s a long story. But I will try to explain. I have a journal app that has been abandoned because it was replaced by a new app with a subscription. I missed the cutoff date for the new app because my mother was very ill in a nursing home. So I wasn’t aware at the time that the old journal app was going to get left behind. And now I still have the old app because I don’t want to pay for a subscription only to have all my life’s history on a new app that handles my data instead of Apple, and have to pay for it too! Well, my loss. That’s the end of my story. And now my mother is gone too.
GREAT APP!!!
by ryley25 on 2020/12/18 15:57
By far one of the best doc scanning apps! If there was anything to add as far as features, I would like the ability to import a document from iCloud to be able to fax or a pop up extension when opening an iCloud document to be able to fax from that location. The fax feature is great, but you can only fax documents that are already scanned into the app.
great app

Amazing
by H3PCAT on 2020/12/18 01:47

App is best scanner app I’ve used....but
by Peavey Guy on 2020/12/18 01:31
Just purchased iPhone 12 pro max. App crashes every time I open it. I tried to send emails to support but app won’t stay open long enough to compose and send. I use this app every day for work and it is the best I’ve used for scanning and uploading files to Salesforce. This is really the first time I’ve had any issues with it.
Love the Scanner Pro app. So easy and convenient to use.

Can’t rename a document when in Zoomed mode
by DC in SCV on 2020/12/17 05:48
When I use the iPhone setting Display Zoom and set it to Zoomed mode, you can’t rename documents because the keyboard overlaps the document name field.
Mess up a great app
by mce99 on 2020/12/16 23:45
App worked great before update. In adding new features totally changed the look and feel when it wasn’t necessary. Have to relearn where various commands are. I can only assume new developers just started fresh. If I need to relearn locations I might as well go to a different app.
Like it, but lack of Options
by WelcomeHomeSW on 2020/12/16 23:41
I first discovered the ability to create a PDF on my phone while using Fast Scanner on my Android phone. It was the single greatest APP EVER! Then I went to iPhone, and that App was not compatible, so I was recommended to THIS APP. It works “ok” I guess, but the ability to save to Dropbox was very, very difficult in earlier versions. Over the last two years they’ve certainly gotten more compatible with Dropbox. So THAT is good! I also don’t like it that there’s no way to adjust the view of all the files on The main page. It ONLY displays in large thumbnails, and not as a “list” view. I really dislike thumbnail views for anything except pictures and I don’t understand why the programmers have not given us the option to change the view to a list format. It’s very standard Microsoft’s been doing it for 30 years now... so what’s the problem? While the ability to create a PDF is the most helpful technological leap in my work in the last few years. I honestly can’t wait to get back to Android. And my old fav app.
Latest update is awful
by Shaolo on 2020/12/16 23:03
Crashes continuously. Still can’t sort asc/desc, randomly turns off iCloud sync, and more. I really miss the previous version.
Great App
by Patriot PawPaw on 2020/12/16 22:56
use it at least once a month.This act
I use this App Everyday!
by MarshallBrown on 2019/10/02 19:49
I love Scanner Pro. It is so easy to use. I use it to scan and send documents nearly everyday because it automatically straightens and aligns them to all four corners, removing all distortion seen in every regular photo. It saves lots of time. The image size can be adjusted after the scan to any standard document size before printing. The scans can be named and renamed again later as needed since no two files can have the same name within the same folder. The date can even be added to the name with one simple click. Scans can be grouped together in one file or placed in multiple files for ease of locating or sending. Any image can be rescanned and replaced with a new image, or discarded altogether. After scanning, you can edit the image in several ways to clean it up oftentimes making it more legible than the original. You can easily scan color or black and white photos, text, full pages, text and images, or even handwriting such as old recipe cards. I find that indirect sunlight is the best light for scanning with this app. You can save any image in color or black & white, in either low or high resolution. Get Scanner Pro-you won’t regret it!
Owned for years; New update is nice
by ( ˘⌣˘)づ)˚з°) on 2021/01/21 12:12
Can’t say that I’m surprised to see folks complaining about the new update, as this seems to be the trend whenever something gets a makeover. Many times the negative reviews are warranted (Fantastical, Airmail — although these two screwed themselves for reasons in addition to their update rendering the apps into hot garbage). This time around, I can say that I’m not disappointed. All the claims regarding new (or kinda new) functions seem to be accurate enough, and I’m enjoying the refreshed interface, which brings the experience up to date and able to aesthetically compete with its peers. To that end, I do have one feature request, which I would be surprised to learn wasn’t already in the works: it would be great to have the ability to change the color scheme/themes, especially with many people utilizing dark mode. Multiple options would be excellent, but even seeing an option to change out blue for grey tones and/or a dark mode would make me a happy camper. Anyways, cheers to the folks over at Readdle. Keep up the good work!
Some suggestions and questions
by 韩旭旭旭旭旭 on 2018/11/26 09:22
I am one of your users and I am using Scanner pro on my iPhone. I have some suggestions and questions. 1. When I finish my scanning and I want to send the file to others directly using my iPhone, I cannot find the option "using the Airdrop" which I think is the most convenient way connected iPhones. This is question #1. 2. As a new comer to this app, I sometimes deleted files by mistake. Although the app can upload files onto the cloud storage, I still think there should be a place where we can find the files we've already deleted just like other products of yours, like PDF Expert. This can be really helpful especially when I have some important files. 3. The uploading works in a strange way sometimes that I can't understand. I always find the folders missing in my Onedrive and iCloud drive, and the files that supposed to be in those missing folders turns out to be in the primary folder. It's easy for me to delete some file in this way. 4. Still the problem of uploading. I think it better to let the files on my iPhone completely conform to ones on the Cloud disk. Sometimes I may scan one file several times to get the best one, and those files are all uploaded on to my iCloud so that I can't tell which one is the best when I open my iCloud. So the best way is that when I delete some files from my phone, they will also be deleted from my Cloud storage at the same time. I'll appreciate it if you can improve some of the problems in the next version.
Blown away
by clearly751 on 2017/10/01 03:07
I have owned this app for years and generally switched between it and Scanbot to get the best scans. I just used it again for the first time in a few months today to scan a multi-page document and I am blown away. Under fairly poor lighting conditions (at nighttime under a yellow lamp) Scanner Pro gave me a perfect OCR scan of my document. Both pages were perfectly aligned, the edges of the pages were perfectly clean, the angle looked perfect, the crease in the paper was gone, and the pages looked perfectly white even though I took the scan under yellow tinted lighting. I tested the scan’s OCR by searching a few random words (in PDF Expert) and it worked perfectly. Wow - I don’t know what secret sauce Readdle has been infusing into this app lately but it’s miles ahead of where it used to be, even though it’s always been one of the top quality scanning apps in the App Store. Bravo, Readdle! Keep it up! PDF Expert and Documents have been invaluable apps to me; I hope Readdle keeps pushing forward.
It used to be my goto scanner app...
by Mustang2066 on 2019/02/20 09:28
I used to use this app all the time to scan my important documents so that I can have them on all my devices wherever I go...Until I started having trouble accessing my documents when I needed them most. If my signal is weak then I usually can’t access all of my documents because they’re all in the cloud and not actually on my devices. Or if I can access them it takes forever to populate in the app. Just recently I had to retrieve a very important document but my signal was weak so I couldn’t retrieve it at the moment I needed it. It was very frustrating. This has happened to me several times and it’s come to the point where I just stopped using this app for scanning and I started using the Apple Notes app which has made it much easier to access what I need when I need it. And also even if I do have a decent signal it takes so very long to load up all my documents. It’s possible I just have so many documents in the app but that’s because I used it and relied on it so much until now. I really like how I can fax documents straight from this app but until these problems get fixed I’m just going to have to go elsewhere..
Best app I’ve purchased
by PinayXXIII on 2018/01/30 20:22
I bought Scanner Pro three years ago and it continues to be the most useful and convenient app I own. Being on-the-go and not always having the time or access to a scanner, this app makes it easy to scan documents in color or B&W for future reference or use. The technology is accurate in capturing the image you want or you can manually adjust borders to get more or less of the document you need. Even if distorted or taken from an angle, the app will automatically adjust the image, so words and borders are straight and clear. You can email, add to, delete or retake scans. I use it all the time. I’ve only used the fax feature once and there is a small fee to pay, but it was money well spent when I needed to emergently send documents for clinicals. I highly recommend this app. My only request from developers would be to look into being able to attach scanned documents to already existing e-mail drafts.
LOVE ease of use, flexibility and quality of documents..
by bruna831 on 2020/11/11 15:27
I really wanted to wait until I had thoroughly challenged this app and I am now ready to do a review. I am thrilled with Scanner PRO. The quality of the documents created really are as good, if not better, than the flat bed scanner on my desk. I can scan anywhere, anytime, and send as jpg or PDF file. It helps my remote communications (out of the office) look professional and crisp. I no longer use my desk scanner. This is faster and easier! I am totally amazed at the quality and pleased with the simplicity and flexibility of this app. Several times we have been onboard our boat cruising and in need of scanning a document and sending. This app just rocks! Thank you to the developers! I don't know if this makes a difference, but I use this app with both the small iPad Pro and, more frequently, with my 15" iPad Pro and even my iPhone. Awesome!!
Years Gone By
by sorry4ever on 2020/12/18 19:03
It’s been years since I’ve used this app. I stopped using it and had deleted it from my phone since sometime between the time I purchased it and 2016. I deleted it because I was not happy with it. The only thing is that it’s been so long I have forgotten why I stopped using it. It’s possible that I deleted it because Apple switched to iCloud and I couldn’t use iCloud because I was afraid that one of my other app’s data would end up in the hands of the developers. It’s a long story. But I will try to explain. I have a journal app that has been abandoned because it was replaced by a new app with a subscription. I missed the cutoff date for the new app because my mother was very ill in a nursing home. So I wasn’t aware at the time that the old journal app was going to get left behind. And now I still have the old app because I don’t want to pay for a subscription only to have all my life’s history on a new app that handles my data instead of Apple, and have to pay for it too! Well, my loss. That’s the end of my story. And now my mother is gone too.
Fantastic For An iPhone
by Dennyhayes on 2021/01/24 17:16
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the OCR needs improvement on things like receipts. I tried to scan my receipts to put into a database that can parse all of the data to the proper categories, but most receipt quality is not great. So I did some experiments to see if it was only the quality of the receipt text, because I realized that if it was totally unrecognizable it would be impossible for any OCR. So I first did a scan of the whole receipt, with yielded many mistakes. So then I used the iPhone photo app to edit the same image many times, each time cropping off areas, leaving only the text that the OCR made mistakes on. This effectively zoomed in on the text, and each time the OCR had an easier time recognizing the text. I did this multiple times, zooming in on every area of the receipts, until it had recognized the entire receipt. So, since it is obviously possible the scanner app could do something similar and end up recognizing the whole receipts.
Nearly the Perfect Business Receipts Expense Scanner
by aityena on 2019/08/28 13:26
This is the best scanner app I’ve used for capturing receipts for business expenses. The capture to black and white, and downsampling to small sizes, coupled with sharing to email (I use SAP Concur that accepts emails to directly import into the expense pipeline), make a formerly tedious process a breeze. There are a couple places in the UI that with some polish and a major enhancement will put this into “perfection” realms. Let users set a preferred email address that the email is sent FROM so there are fewer taps to share a scan in a workflow. I’d change my rating to five stars right there and be satisfied because the major enhancement is really a far reach. The major enhancement is OCR and pattern recognition, so scans get the OCR metadata optionally embedded into the PDF, and the pattern recognition senses logos/patterns and lets you use that in workflows to alter scan titles or workflow actions. Then scans of a chain restaurant receipt for example, would automatically fill in a custom title and share to a predefined email.
Almost Perfect
by tbajko on 2017/11/21 11:30
There's a lot to love about this app. It's simple, intuitive, and does a great job at recognizing pages and transforming them into quality scans. I love the custom share sheet and integration with iCloud Drive. It's almost perfect, but I'm deducting two whole stars in hopes that it'll bring attention to the fact that the app chokes when I need to scan more than a handful of pages. For example, I wanted to scan 35 whole pages yesterday. By the 8th page, the app was glitching out and slowing down on me. It was barely usable, but it worked—up until when my phone (a 7 Plus) literally overheated and rebooted. My scanned pages were still there in the app, but it was a nerve-wracking experience when I really just needed the scan done quickly and uploaded. I understand that it must take a lot of processing power for Scanner Pro to do what it does, but if I paid for a Pro app, I'd want to be able to seamlessly scan a whole bunch of pages in one go. Regardless, if your particular use case is light, you'll be satisfied with Scanner Pro.
The best scan app
by AmyB8484 on 2020/07/11 17:19
I tried several scan apps before trying this one. I thought the others would be better quality just because they made you pay for a subscription. Boy, was I wrong. I couldn’t find a scan app that both did a good job scanning without giving me a blurry mess and also let me export in both pdf and gave the option to save the image file to my camera roll. Other scanners wouldn’t let you export to camera roll even if you were paying. So I finally tried this one, which you only have to pay for once. It does an excellent job. If you’re scanning a multi-page document and one of the pages doesn’t come out right, you can just go back and rescan that page without having to rescan the whole document. It’s user-friendly, easy to use, and gives you lots of options. Has definitely made my life easier.
Absolutely Excellent App!!
by Far2hip on 2020/09/15 16:31
I’ll keep it short and simple. If you need a scanning app for your smartphone, look no further. Scanner Pro is the best one you will find for some very simple reasons. I have been using Scanner Pro basically since they first offered it on the IPhone. Through the years it has transformed into an extremely important part of my communication regimen using my smartphone. It’s easy to use, intuitive, and all of the use options are logical, handy, and just plain smart. Combine this app with PDF Expert and you have basically everything you need to scan, assemble, and edit documents on the go with all the power of an office system right in your hand. Scanner Pro has become the ONLY scanner app I recommend. Period. As a long time user from the beginning, big thanks to you folks for staying on top of the advancements with Scanner Pro!! Top shelf!!😎
Amazingly simple
by cnikkij on 2018/03/17 18:59
I never rate apps. But I had to rate this one. It’s incredible. Thank you to the other reviewers who convinced me to use this! I was using Tiny Scanner and tried iScanner. This one is perfect. It’s everything an app should be — intuitive, simple and efficient. You can have it automatically take the photos. They are very crisp. They are so easy to name and to adjust the color on. The app synced to my Dropbox effortlessly. When I upload subsequent documents to Dropbox, it pulls up the folder where I was before. Which is so great when I’m uploading lots of documents - cuts down on me having to click through all the other folders. I have a scanner on my printer 20 feet away from me, but this is so much faster and easier. I’m actually looking for more things to scan so I keep using Scanner Pro! Get it. Well worth a few bucks if you need a scanner app.
Very smooth and glitch-free
by ClarkDowd on 2019/07/10 14:07
I use Scanner Pro for the purpose of reducing the physical space taken up in my filing cabinets. I’ll soon be 59 and have a long history stuffed into boxes that I have endeavored to send through my shredder. This application is intuitive and problem-free for me. I have a suggestion regarding the filing of scanned documents that - if implemented - would make things more convenient. As it is, you can put multiple documents into a file with a name (let’s say “AUTO”), bit you cannot create subfiles within the original file. I own two vehicles and in the AUTO file, I have TRUCK documents and SUV documents as subfiles. What I would suggest is making it possible to make subfiles within the TRUCK and SUV files that I could name INSURANCE, SERVICES, FUEL, etc. But I still love this application for its ease of use and the space it’s helping make a reality.
App needs improvement
by TxCrocodile on 2018/04/20 11:08
I have owned this app and used it for years. It is nice to be able to scan all my receipts on the road. Recently more and more companies are emailing receipts and I have a need to compile these into a PDF and send them via PDF to our finance group. The problems are two fold. The only way to get the emailed receipt, whether it be a PDF or other type of document, into this app is screenshot it and then laboriously go back into the Scanner Pro app and import them into the app, where manual cropping is required. This contrasts with other scanning apps like Genius Scan which allows you to directly import them into the app itself from a menu that pops up in the actions tab (where you would forward the PDF or other document). Second problem is when the screen capture is imported, the quality is so poor that others cannot read the actual document at all. This is likely a compression problem or, more likely, a result of the Scanner Pro app trying to adjust the resolution/color to one of it’s four pre-determined resolution settings. I have asked Readdle to support the import direct function months ago with no progress shown. Therefore, I am likely making the leap to Genius Scan by Grizzly Labs until they fix these two issues. I do love Readdle apps and would easily assist them in explaining more as I truly believe they have an excellent suite of products. Problem is this is just not usable now for my circumstances.
Everything I need
by Jamills23 on 2020/02/24 17:56
I have been looking around for a good document scanner for school use for over a year. I had tried most of the free scanner apps and all of them were garbage. Some had bad interfaces, and most had a monthly fee. I wanted an app that I had to pay for once, and can do everything. This is that app. Scanning documents is easy - especially multiple paged ones. I also love how this app can automatically upload scans to a folder in my school google drive. I love this app and would easily pay 10 dollars for it. My only thing I would have to say to the developer is to make a free lite version. One so people could do like 5 scans can see if they like the app, then get the pro version. If they offers this I would have gotten this app over a year ago. I want to thank the developer(s) for making such an awesome app.
The best scanning app ever!
by Hagenx9698 on 2020/01/10 02:11
I needed a scanning application in order to send in a few documents for college. I started by first using other applications that allegedly preform the same intentions, if the other apps let you past the first page of trying to purchase a ~$50 year long contract, when trying to scan your documents you will surely be prompted with a message to continue scanning by buying one of these obscene packages. By downloading this app, sure you pay a mere ~$4 but it’s, to my knowledge, a permanent installation of the app that allows me to scan books if I wanted to. On top of the perfect price relative to current market value, the app is incredibly versatile and extremely easy to use. I very much recommend this app to anyone who needs to scan anything! Great app!
Excellent phone scanner
by MKB58 on 2018/01/23 22:46
I read a fair number of older medical journal articles that were printed before everything became available electronically, many of which I want to incorporate into my library of journal articles. I purchased TurboScan to take to the library on my phone. It wasn't doing a very good job with flash control and contrast control, etc., and backup seemed somewhat limited. I bought Scanner Pro. It takes a much better image from the get go. It has better contrast control. It has more flexible options for interfacing with OneDrive and other storage sites. I have Scanner Pro, TurboScan, Scanable, Office Lens. Scanner Pro is my favorite and the one I use most. I do like Office Lens for its white board ability.
Not for OCR Solutions (as Readdle advertises)
by WildBillWillie on 2018/10/07 02:52
Horrible, horrible, OCR no matter how polished or pre-preped the Photo is with the source text. Even very clean clear black text on white background, the app usually has errors. Poorly executed programming flow. Even if I take a snip of text, say a paragraph in the picture, it assumes the snip I just made in its crop selection is a full page. So the app, to correct for this stretches the snip. My text paragraph, is now stretched up and down in really thin lettering. Then it tries to perform OCR on this and naturally fails miserably. Just what were they thinking? Didn't anyone try their app before putting it on the store? Band-Aid fix is ...if you can guess almost exactly the dimensions of your clipped paragraph, you can punch X and Y dimensions in manually and it does better. Second-best is using the auto size feature, which on mine didn't appear as the default setting -why I don't know. And sadly, Readdle doesn't even have the workflow so that from your pictures album you could send a picture directly to OCR with a "cut" button for pasting (which is what the user is going to do next) ready to go like in other apps. Clumsy, clumsy, unusable. Not the typical Readdle Standard quality of apps. They really dropped the ball on this one. The only good thing I can applaud them on is being forward thinking and putting WebDave features in place cleared -kudos. Otherwise, it's just another scanning app.
Love the OCR for school — one suggestion
by Blurred connections on 2019/03/03 15:18
To echo more general reviews, this app rocks. I use it in conjunction with Readdle's PDF Reader for as much of my grad school reading as possible. However, here's a situation I experience often (and expect other students do, too) that this scanner could fix: My instructors will scan a book on a photo copier that flattens the image and exports to a packet pdf. The edges of the pages will show with large swaths of black space for the scan area, and I can't import this document into Scanner to use its OCR functions. Currently (and I've tried a lot of things), I have to separate each page and save them as individual jpegs in Photos for Scanner to recognize and reassemble my document. This takes forever. Please, could you add an import feature for pdf that let's us re-crop and re-OCR-scan the pages?
Frustrating App
by 2121Iawl on 2019/09/03 22:02
This app was once a terrific tool w/few quirks. But sometime last year an update turned it into one of the most frustrating, and my least favorite but necessary, app. Prior to that update, it easily took pics/scans of docs, allowing the SAME adjustments as today, easily adding additional pages w/o issue, as well as saving, uploading to Dropbox & attaching to email or messages. Now EVERY TIME I try using this app I must retake pages 3, 4 or 5 times before it keeps a pic/scan - because the darn thing simply DISAPPEARED! Then when it looks like it keeps a shot, it disappears when editing - even after saving the darn thing! Oh boy, I've been trying other scanning apps, but others are much more cumbersome & not so intuitive. So until I find that elusive app that is easy, intuitive AND works properly, I'm stuck with this one. Too bad, they used to have a good thing!
Too buggy currently
by BrassEdge on 2019/12/09 13:36
I’ve used ScannerPro for years and loved it, but recently it’s become far too buggy for me to use. It sometimes has a hard time reading my file system and requires a full restart of my device, sometimes runs fairly slow, a few times was not getting in focus, but the worst is when it started crashing in the middle of a 100-page scan and forced me to start over. Not to mention the file management isn’t the best, at least when syncing with cloud drive. If I want to rename them on my cloud drive or move files around, it won’t update or sync between the drive and what’s stored locally on ScannerPro. If you can fix at least the bugs I’m suddenly running into, this will once again be my go-to scamming app. Currently, however, I’m looking for a replacement.
What happened?
by ShevchukD on 2017/10/17 15:31
Used this scanner all the time. The app always recognized the edges of the paper with no problems at all. But for some reason after ios 11 came out it recognizes the edges very poorly. Now no matter how perfectly I position the document I need to scan, I still need to crop the edges manually after the picture is taken what wasn’t the case before. In the past my conspiracy brain always made me feel that as soon as the new iphone comes out my older model starts to perform noticeably worse. Now I can’t shake off the feeling that since in new ios scanner is available natively from the notes app, the 3rd party apps will slowly start to die off. Although to be fair I don’t see that much comments here that are complaining about poor performance of the app, so who knows, maybe it’s only an issue on my phone.
So far so good
by Bobalinka on 2017/10/25 01:53
So far really liking this app a lot. I was using tiny scanner before this and I felt it scanned everything pretty well. The problem with tiny scanner was that it didn't work with Google Drive. It even started to have a problem with drop box. I like to be able to store me scans in the cloud and it was really frustrating. Now with this app I am having no problems uploading to any of the cloud storage places. It has been working seamlessly. So happy! Scans great too. Really cool thing they do is send you 7 short lessons on how to get the most out of this app. Loved it!! Didn't have to spend hours figuring everything out. So far one of the few apps I spent money on that I felt was worth it!!!
Best of the best! Still love it!
by AshleyZM on 2017/08/22 00:47
4th review - still the best!! And I'm one to always dl new things looking for better apps, but I never bother with any scanner apps. This is one my employees have to download because I don't want ugly scans in our files. OCR works beautifully. Love that you can choose to do that later by editing a scan. That's really cool. Developers, keep up the great work! Years later, my review below still stands. Except the app gets better and better! Yay!! Sooo convenient!! This scanner truly works better than all the others. Trust me, I tested all of them!! So much easier/faster than using the printer's scanner and has a great quality. Document image quality is outstanding. Syncing makes it even faster.
Works great
by Andyc1110 on 2017/08/26 14:20
It hasn't disappointed yet. This app does everything one would expect out of a scanner app. I rarely scanned documents before getting this app about 6 months ago. It was a pain. Whether I used my desktop scanner or the photocopier down the hall it was guaranteed to take at least five minutes. Now I can have the same quality image I would expect from our photocopier using this app instead. It is quick, intuitive, and produces documents I feel comfortable using as a professional. On top of that it interacts flawlessly with my Gmail and Dropbox accounts, making it much more powerful than any other scanning option I have. This is very empowering software.
Scanner Pro
by hyamlcSP on 2019/09/06 02:41
I did a big scanning job for a court case. There were many pages of all different sizes. Some pages were 2 sided. This job was deemed impossible with a regular desktop scanner that could not accommodate small pages mixed with larger pages nor could it determine if a page was 2-sided. I used the basic Scanner Pro software to scan everything. This was several years ago and as I recall there were several thousand odd sized pages and the job took about 2-1/2 days. I just set up a work station and was able to rapidly flip and snap the pages. The small pages and 2-sided pages were under my control while I flipped and snapped. The job went smoothly.
Best in class
by [Name withheld] on 2018/09/21 14:20
This is the best scanning app I have tried—and I have tried a dozen or so! For the 70% of the time that distortion removal works, it is great! Two small complains with an otherwise stellar product: 1. App is inconsistent in how it deals with shadows on the page. Unfortunately, this is a constant annoyance as there are almost always some shadows unless you have improbably perfect light—in which case, you probably have better options for scanning than an iPhone! The result is that about 10% of pages require a retake or two before a clean scan is obtained—and maybe 5% of pages require a half-dozen tries to even get an acceptable scan, never mind a good one. Considering how hard it is to find lighting where the phone itself does not cast a shadow on the page, the app should handle this better—on this it is clearly behind others. 2. App can be quite badly behaved with longer documents. Somewhere around around 15-20 pages, app sometimes crashes. Fortunately data seems usually to be preserved so you can pick up where you left off but it is annoying. Some rough edges notwithstanding, this remains the best scanning app I have so far found.
A full-fledged, totally portable desk scanner!
by PerfumeFactory on 2019/08/17 19:32
My default hobby is digital document control, 49,000 family and biz documents scanned and full-text indexed over 30 years. Preserving history & running the company with totally efficient control & retrieval. ScannerPro app exceeds ANY desk scanning software; HP, Canon, all of them in features! It includes decent level OCR. And you always have it handy in your pocket, which is a major asset for on the spot, books & magazines, things that don't move, & places like museums. The quality depends on your device, iPhone it's superb. You'll be amazed at B&W document scanning; crisp, full-size resolution, almost always better than the original. Just snapping a photo doesn't compare.
Super! Recommend to everyone!
by ggarci on 2020/07/12 23:21
I love this app! I use it for everything I need to scan. At school, work , or home, I always come to this program to help scan something that is important or something I need to remember. For example, if I have papers for a meeting, I’ll scan them just in case something happens to my copies. There’s been times I forgot my copies at home, but was glad I scanned them. I can edit and export it. I usually export it to my pdf app. I though I would stop using it because of Apple’s update, but nope. This is better than anything else I have tried. Also, they have always been working on keeping it updated and improving it periodically.
Uncomplicated Receipts
by CT MD on 2019/08/27 13:02
The image quality for scanned receipts is excellent, and it’s very fast and easy to upload the scans to the cloud. I use this App primarily to scan my receipts, immediately after I make a credit card transaction, usually while I’m still standing at the cash register. Then, I upload the scanned receipt directly to my Microsoft OneDrive and my Scanner Pro folder. Later, I attach the scanned receipt to either a QuickBooks or Quicken expense line item in my credit card account register. It makes life exceedingly less complicated when you don’t have to handle (and then handle again) paper receipts. This App makes that bookkeeping process painless.
Love this app!
by klueamrung on 2020/07/23 14:54
This is by far the best scanning app! I use it everyday to scan and send docs. Extremely easy to use! I did have an issue with the app freezing up. I contacted customer support and received a response within 24hrs and was given instructions on how to fix the issue. Works perfect once again. I have been using this app for years and never had issues. Alina with customer support just made me love it that much more! Thank you for creating an app that is beneficial to my everyday business needs that truly works! Thank you for having such a wonderful customer support team that takes care of issues immediately.
Awesome app!
by lmperez13 on 2019/12/27 16:02
ScannerPro is super helpful for digitizing your life. The camera will automatically detect the edges of your document and give you the option to correct it if necessary. Other tools, like the brightness and contrast, help you get the most clarity out of your scan, and once you’re finished, you can upload it directly to your cloud of choice or just keep save it to the app. One of my favorite features is that it allows me to navigate my Google Drive and save my documents to the right folder, all within the app. As a student, ScannerPro has been an awesome alternative to lugging around textbooks and syllabi. I highly recommend it!
Beautiful Scanner Update Crashing OneDrive Uploads
by DahiliaDiamonds77_7 on 2019/10/11 05:27
I have enjoyed this app the first time it was shown to me. I used it daily for receipts, documents, and sharing directly to my computer with OneDrive. It has great options to for scanned documents. Only problem is since I updated the app I can no long upload through it receiving error “Authorization Failed”, “The operation couldn’t be completed. (RSGenericOnlineClientErrorDomain Error2). Can we please this problem fixed it was my go to upload and now have to rely on Dropbox again which doesn’t have the same feel. Anyway great app just a minor dysfunction that I hope can be resolved. Took screenshot from my iPhone X and am hoping to return to my daily paths.
The Standard For [Mobile] Scanning
by MobileBusinessPro on 2019/04/12 06:44
Before discovering this app a few years ago I used Cam Scanner. It got the job done I suppose but this app is loaded with features, it's simple to use, and since I always have my phone handy, it's the most convenient and my preferred method of scanning. Readdle has almost created the perfect scanning app. The only feature I would like to see is an option to import PDFs directly in order to access the powerful OCR capabilities of this app. When yahoos send me terrible PDFs I can't copy / paste from I find myself converting the PDF pages to .jpg, throwing them in my photo gallery, importing the images to Scanner Pro, and exporting a PDF I can actually work with. If you’re considering using this app just save yourself the trouble and buy the entire Readdle suite now because I promise you... you'll eventually own it anyway. Once you use app this company creates you'll fall in love. Quit delaying the inevitable and buy it before they figure out how awesome they are and start charging what they're actually worth.
Loved at first but extremely frustrated
by mrsscheely on 2019/08/24 03:49
I’ve loved this app for awhile but several mistakes have left me extremely frustrated. I use this app to scan important documents, and now several times when I go back to find the scans, they have all been wiped. They weren’t uploaded to Google Drive or another app, they’re just gone. Last time I tried to upload a document to Google drive just in case it wiped it on me again, and sure enough, they were gone when I went back for them. They didn’t upload to Google Drive like I thought it did, and they’re gone. Maybe I’m missing something, but I’ve looked everywhere they could possibly be and they're no where to be found. I like the app, but I can’t trust it with important documents. Seriously disappointed and extremely frustrated
Super Scanner
by Robert7N on 2017/12/15 20:14
This is the "holy grail" of iOS scanning. It's unmatchable in the mobile Scanner Apps. I wish there was a BlackBerry version too. It basically makes all scanner apps look like toys. However I cannot give it 5 stars. Why? Because to give 5 stars is to imply that it is equal to other 5 star scanner apps. I give 7 stars! This is all I ever need for my perfect scans. I have tried some top name apps to do anything better than this but there is none out there. NONE. I have even paid for apps more expensive than Scanner Pro only to end up deleting them. I cannot have the second best for what I do. I need the BEST and this is it.
Wonderful scanner tool
by FrequentlyDineOut on 2017/07/30 15:22
This apps provides great features that help my two continuous needs for a scanner. First it gives me PDF versions of my business receipts to use to file my expenses. This was my initial reason due selecting the application. Once I had it I realized it could replace my large scanner and fax machine for the day-to-day family needs such as kids sports registration forms, government document requests, and forms needed by my tax attorney. Great app for anything requiring my signature. Easy to use, allows you to save the scanned documents for future use, and has built in connection to email to easily send the scanned images.
Fantastic
by Kslug on 2017/10/06 16:37
I've been using this app on both my iPhone and my iPad for about two years now. In short, I love it! I travel frequently for work. This simple app allows me to scan receipts and convert them into .pdfs on the go, as I receive them, which makes documentation expense reports super easy to generate - way easier than looking for/using a scanner while traveling. Same goes for signing hard-copy documents while traveling - print, sign, scan, email - all from your mobile device. I highly recommend downloading this app for anyone whose mobile device is often his/her office space. 👍
Going Downhill
by LoveSammie on 2017/11/01 13:13
This app used to be perfect for in the moment at home, and quick on-the-go scanning. Not sure if it was after the iOS 11 update, or a random bug, but now there is discoloration and distortion on almost all edges of the scan. When taking the photo and within the first preview, it’s normal. Once moving to the last step to save, the distortion appears. My phone froze for almost 10 minutes last night while trying to use the app. Had no issues at all before launching it. Tried again this morning, app was very sluggish, and I had to accept the distortion on the page today as the document was urgent. Issue needs to be fixed or I’ll have to move on to something else for scanning.
I LOVE THIS APP!
by eupatorium on 2017/09/19 00:11
I am an older law student and the casebooks are too much to carry around...and they're not all available as e-books. I was sad when the pics I took of the pages with the iPad were too uneven to use....and thrilled when I got ScannerPro! ScannerPro makes the pages look great despite inadequate lighting and the warping of the image from being in an open book. I then save the page images in a file folder in the same company's Documents app, and I can read them just like a book. I even underline and mark on the pages with the Apple Pencil in the Documents app. It's wonderful, and it's saved my back!
Spent a few minutes testing...
by Stevearcher on 2018/02/03 19:34
Did a comparison of the several paid scanner apps I own, scanning identical print under the same lighting. Of course, they all essentially worked. But Scanner Pro was the fastest to successfully frame the image, automatically cleaning it up. Then when I pressed the text button (sheepishly admitting to never having noticed it before), the printed copy was INSTANTLY OCR'd! And formatted correctly! As usual, Readdle in one of the most dependable productivity app developers in the Apple Store. (And I have no connection with them other than being a satisfied user of most of their products.)
This has proven to be the best scanner app
by ccfowler on 2019/09/22 20:33
I have been using this app for years, and it is so good and handy that I almost never use my “real” scanner anymore. Whether it is scanning to jpeg or PDF formats, it is consistently excellent with my iPhone X and before that with my iPhone 6 Plus. I can’t recall when I last used my “real” scanner. This app is also excellent for scanning for OCR, but so far, I haven’t used that functionality much but when I do, I prefer using it to the OCR on my Windows computer. I haven’t used the OCR functionalities on my Linux computer yet, so I’m not sure which may prove to be the best for my needs.
I Want to Work at Readdle!
by MatthewAV on 2017/11/08 06:22
ScannerPro is stable, feature-rich, and indispensable. This is a powerful app. • It produces scan-quality images, not just camera snapshots of documents. • ScannerPro “Workflows” are like R2D2 assistants. After an easy (and powerfully connected to cloud storage) setup, they upload your files into the safety of the cloud with one tap. (You can automate them; and even keep copies on your device.) • It’s a powerful app—don’t be scared of needing to read instructions. • The ScannerPro in-app Help and email support are reliable. • Behind strong in-app password and privacy protection, I have entire medical forms on my device and safely in the cloud; so I have access to all my info while I’m talking with the doctor. • I have vital legal documents, service contracts, and warranties easily accessible and safely in the cloud. • Readdle releases only meaningful updates to ALL of their apps and ScannerPro updates follow that policy. • I have purchased EVERY app Readdle has created. Readdle apps really have changed MY life.
Game-changer for this working musician

I'm a professional guitarist who works in a variety of different bands and situations, and I'm constantly learning new music for gigs. I've used an iPad for reading sheet music since shortly after it was released in 2010. Scanner Pro has created a great workflow for capturing printed music and getting it into my preferred sheet music PDF app, ForScore. Scanner Pro's automatic scanning features work extremely well and it does a good job of de-skewing and converting the scanned pages to black-and-white. As I capture them, the pages are saved directly to dropbox, where I can easily import them into ForScore.
This is the one

Over the past few years I’ve tried just about every scanning app in the App Store and this one is the one with all of the features and intelligence I need. I can scan a 20 page document, rename it, and email it in less than 2 minutes, on the go. It has folders to organize all your documents which is perfect for what I use it for. The UI is still a little clumsy (trying to drag documents into the folders) it would be fantastic if that was rearranged to be a bit smoother. Otherwise, this is one of the top 5 apps I use every day.
Working well thank you

This app has changed a lot, and works much better now. I purchased it a few years back, in mean time got a new phone and it came up as paid for while searching for a scan app ... how lucky I am! And the reason I searched for it was that the other one I tried to use just was too “unfriendly”! Too many limitations. So when this came up, I remembered that I had it but never uploaded again onto new phone. Truly the best scan app. Easy to use, works like a charm. Thanks for being able to transfer to new phone. It makes me happy!!
Works good. It's my go to scanner for iPhone

Works very good IMHO. Pretty good interface. Excellent quality—- all my scans even the ones from years ago ( from different Iphones) are still there.- I never migrated them myself- they just seem to flawlessly follow my phone every time I get a new phone which is a huge plus for me) It's my go to mobile scanner for iPhone. Use mostly for work- I own a real estate brokerage so this comes in handy when I don't want to pay a $1 a page to have copies made. Also to note- I've used on full sized house plans- even works good on them. If it's something you'll use frequently- I don't see how you can go wrong. I’m a Realtor, Broker, Landlord and Investor in real estate and I use this app almost daily. Very satisfied — I tell everyone about it. Device used with: iPhone 4s, iPhone 5, IPhone 6, Iphone 7 and now my iPhone 8plus They have all worked flawlessly- and I even have my very first scan. Can’t ask for more. Best few bucks I ever spent in the Apple App Store for sure. Paul Maine, USA
