What happened????
by Vidalrick on 2019/04/24 04:53
Loved the app! I’ve been using it for years. Love the connection to OneDrive! But since the last update it seems they ruined the app, it’s crashing, connection with OneDrive now working properly! Please, pull this version out until it’s fixed!!!
Simply the best App ever made .
by Eogarcia3 on 2019/04/23 12:26
It’s the best tool for Business or Personal use just get it .
Used to work
by Darren784 on 2019/04/19 15:11
This was a fantastic app, took great pictures, trimmed them intuitively, good detail, and was very easy to email scans or send them to my Dropbox. People at work were always surprised at the quality of the scans, just as good as the xerox! However this app has not worked at all on my iPhone 6s is about a month. It will no longer snap a picture automatically and locks up if take the picture manually. Luckily still works in my iPad so I’ll have to resort to using the iPad as opposed to finding another scanner app. I’ve rebooted and removed and reinstalled the app with no resolution. I assume they’ll get around the fixing this versions bug someday.
Not sure what happened
by Mohamad Sobh on 2019/04/19 09:32
The app was working perfectly but after the latest update it keeps crashing after I take a scan of the second page of a document (i.e. first picture is ok, but when adding a second to the scan deck the app crashes).
What happened to PDFs?
by Miss Tallulah on 2019/04/18 03:35
I’m scanning a document, selecting “black & white document” (NOT Photo) yet when I try to email it, it’s reacting as a jpeg, asking what size I want to send it as. When the document is received, it’s a jpeg, not a pdf. I’m very disappointed. I’ve been using this app for years. I hope this is just a glitch that will get fixed quickly.
Documents disappear
by keyprav on 2019/04/17 21:56
I’ve been using this app for quite a while. I’m a researcher, I scan a Lot of materials in libraries, etc. recently I noticed that scanned documents disappear and then miraculously reappear a few days later. There might be something with the upload process. I’ll have to go back to TurboScan which is less convenient much reliable
Harder with each update
by KevinDanielChase on 2019/04/16 00:10
I have loved this app, but with each update they make it harder to email yourself (at least in Outlook) a PDF of your receipts. They have recently been failing on delivering the final product this app is meant to do.
Removal of “add service in share as:”
by Amir panahi on 2019/04/13 17:32
You removed “add service “from “share as: menu “in this update . By this update You made us have no choice to remove the apps we do not like to be there. Please restore this menu to previous one. If you did this i ‘d score 5 stars for this app. Thanks a lot in advance

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.
Working just beautifully
by ElMo_Palmira on 2019/04/12 05:16
Love this app, it syncs with multiple iOS devices using the icloud, the scans are very good quality. I am a happy customer.
Issues saving
by Hsalaman1 on 2019/04/11 20:47
I used to be a die hard fan of the app but as of lately it doesn’t save any of my scans. Been having issues losing important work documents.
Scanner Pro works for me daily!
by K4KW on 2019/04/09 17:59
I use it every day to scan bills of lading and other essentials for work. I'm a truck driver and the ability to scan and organize into folders makes my life much easier. Automatically uploads to the Dropbox folder of my choice. Love, love, love it!
Love it but suddenly glitch?
by Lizgeotx on 2019/04/07 17:05
The app is crashing and won't save my scans. This is the first time I've had a problem with the app in years. What happened? I made a scan, clicked save. Then the file is nowhere and the app crashes.
Very Buggy
by Jebus91 on 2019/04/05 18:52
Have a lot of sync errors with Dropbox , often crashes because of this I believe. Edit : the app is just buggy as hell to the point where it wouldn’t open and just stayed in a black screen . It has problems to handle big scans like books and often files disappear
Great but Small Improvement Needed
by Private W on 2019/04/04 17:44
This app is the number one scanner by far!! The only thing that would make it the best is being able to create a folder within the folder.
Doesn’t work anymore
by Longmire85 on 2019/03/25 03:03
No matter what I try to scan, the app buttons will freeze and nothing will work after that. I even uninstalled and reinstalled.
Wouldn’t send email
by AKAAMANDAPANDA on 2019/03/19 15:49
WiFi on, clearly took the scan and the send button never allowed me to send. Really annoyed, waste of $3.99.
New version is buggy
by Calakmul on 2019/03/15 14:51
I been a happy Scanner Pro customer for a while. Unfortunately the latest version is buggy. Every other time I try to open the app it crashes with no explanation. Please fix the problem ASAP.
Unable to switch to PDF
by PDF GaL on 2019/03/15 03:59
Dear Scanner Pro folks, I’ve loved this app and recommended until recently. This low rating reflects a new problem. My scans now are automatically turned into JPEGs but I need PDFs. The PDF option isn’t showing up. In one instance when it did and I hit PDF, it remained in JPEG. What is the solution? I’m going to have to switch apps if I’m unable to make it work. Thanks!
the fax its not work with me
by maitherm on 2019/03/14 11:56
the fax its not work with me i want to refund
Needs message support
by AlaskanNightWolf on 2019/03/12 13:25
Great app, everything functions as it should. I have to do a round about to get a pdf into a text message. Will add one more star if this capability is added. Right now I have to extract to pdf, upload to one drive, open one drive and send the file via text(without link to OneDrive/ actual file). A lot of unnecessary steps to get it in a text message.
Major password issue
by Wendell319 on 2019/03/10 17:29
There is a major password flaw with this application that the developer is incapable of understanding let alone fixing. Once you have added a password to a document you can never remove it. If you try to remove it a different password (the PERMISSIONS password) is requested. There is no way to set the permissions password and the App provider are disowning any management of it. This is important in the use case where you password protect a document to send across email (as you should) but want to remove that password to store the document in a secured environment
very disappointed
by jsjjsjjjsjjsaskkkshsh on 2019/03/07 04:26
a waste of money and more importantly, time. too difficult to use, no obvious way of scanning in color, and not exportable with ease.
Best App scanner
by Chandal21 on 2019/03/06 22:08
I think this is the first time that I write a review because I am blown away by the quality and the this app works. Great job :)
There r better one out there for free or at less cost
by takeoff9048 on 2019/03/06 09:13
I m huge fun if the pdf expert frim the same developer although this app was a waste of money for me. Never did the work as expected.
Excellent App
by panchozz1 on 2019/03/05 06:04
Very fast app with booting up as well as scanning. Quite good camera action, good quality, only issue is camera takes pic as soon as it can, sometimes causing visual movement on scan with wobble or blur. Smooth and quick interface Does exactly what its mean to do 9/10!
Nothing better for periodic digitization of business documents!
by Fitztacular on 2019/03/05 01:24
Title says it all. Using this app to send photos/scans of documents to the cloud is so much easier than putting the documents in my scanner, sending them to my computer, and finally manually dragging them over to the relevant cloud folder. Highly recommended.
Feature request: support iOS Files app
by flyingsnowball on 2019/03/03 23:57
Would love to get my scanned PDFs to cloud services that are supported through Apple’a iOS Files app (OwnCloud and NextCloud come to mind). Thanks.
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?
Stop Working crashes Constantly
by Trilouist on 2019/03/02 21:16
It’s become a total chore. Used to work beautifully. Now it crashes every time I try to save a document
Excellent, highly recommend this app
by Nickname578 on 2019/03/02 18:58
This app has saved me untold hours of scanning. I can now very easily turn my filing system into one that is completely electronic. I now routinely scan my documents with this app and shred the papers. I save directly to iCloud and then later if I so choose place them in the appropriate locations in my filing system on my Mac. The document recognition algorithms are very good, commonly finding boundaries of papers and sizing the final document correctly. This really is quite a good app which I use all the time.
Excellent app!
by Anthony Hud on 2019/03/02 02:12
UPDATE: fax confirmation!! My anxiety thanks you!! This is hands down the best scanner app on the App Store. It's saved my butt so many times. Every professional should have this app, as it is incredibly useful.
Great app!
by timboslice802 on 2019/03/02 01:22
Very professional quality scans.
A must have
by Ramya logesh on 2019/02/28 17:33
Very useful and wonderful app for Scanning. The OCR text recognition was flawless. One improvement would be on adding Edit feature on sorting the pages after scan. I had missed pg 15 of 125 pages document and had to redo.
you are the best guys
by Massage mania on 2019/02/27 17:34
i paid and tried a lot of scanner programs in the store, automatic scanning is really really great and saves alot of times when i scan a lot of documents, you are the best and the most affordable one, thank you guys, could you also add fast signing, putting date and writing name or initials with finger ability that would be great without openning your other app:)
18.97 hit my account

I’m sure I seen 3.50 what the hell
One annoyance but good scanning abilities
by sojohnlike on 2019/02/23 00:12
Putting the sheet against a dark background like black or grey usually results in fast auto captures. I absolutely hate how the app keeps asking if I want to enable auto upload every time I upload a file to OneDrive. If I wanted the feature on I would’ve turned it on by now. I upload my files to specific folders each time and don’t want auto upload.
Does fine until size of file gets large
by train-jetski on 2019/02/22 15:42
Tried to scan a 28 page doc. The app would not let me share because “it might be blocked” with no way to get around the warning. Very frustrating. Could only upload the file to Dropbox, but that split the doc into 28 separate pages. How about letting g me send the file and let my email servers pass judgement on file size. Big files just have more to love.
Easy to use
by Vegasblondie on 2019/02/22 04:05
Downloaded and used right away. Intuitive design and function, great app!!!
Very disappointed
by trabadero on 2019/02/21 01:24
This app request full access of all files on google drive - not only folder or files it creates. The border detection needs constant correction
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..
Problems in recent update
by gunnkun on 2019/02/15 18:00
With the most recent update the app no longer scans on my iPhone SE. no settings have changed, but it will not automatically capture a document, and if I manually press the button the app stalls. It will still show that it is recognizing the edges of the document, but never captures it. I can’t get past the capture screen to save the document anymore.
Incredible!
by HaoleLove on 2019/02/14 14:47
This is one of the best apps of all time! It’s absolutely incredible. It’s super easy to use and saves a lot of time. Best money ever spent (and I never buy apps). Thank you, to the developer, for what you do!
Absolute Junk
by Bogiebox on 2019/02/14 00:32
This program DOES NOT WORK. If you try to access your photos IT decides what photos it will convert, not what you want converted. I have images of pure text that it will not allow me to access. So, I printed the pages out and scanned it. NOTHING. It does nothing but convert it to an uneditble PDF. THERE IS NO TEXT CONVERSION. If there is, it’s hidden deep inside the program an you have to get a degree to lean how to use it. This is a total waste of money.
Better Stability
by bobbyleejones on 2019/02/12 23:20
I raised my rating to “4” since the latest version is a lot more stable. My “4 rating” comes from the fact that I use other scanners, such as Microsoft OneNote, for scanning stuff, and they’re pretty good too. I use this app for making PDF’s for eink readers. This app would be more useful to me if it could create small pdf files with png images of a certain dpi (and size) and a specific number of indexed colors (grayscale colors) using nearest neighbor interpolation. Being able to erase shadows would be nice as well.
How do I send this as a gift?
by Rockrabbit45 on 2019/02/12 15:34
I’m needing to send this app to my colleagues as a gift. I know if they try the app they will gift it to others. So how can I send this app as a gift? Thank you.
Stupid decision
by sam_modi333 on 2019/02/08 21:25
Y would you guys take out iCloud service without informing your customers? Will never recommend you guys... this is stupid... just to check my previous doc. I have to login to iCloud...
Do not buy
by Rykaroni on 2019/02/07 20:37
There is a glitch with iPhone facial recognition where it takes about 6 or 7 swipes up to unlock the phone if you happened to lock your iPhone with the app still open. I’ve contacted customer support with this issue but there seems to be a lack of product updating or support for the latest phones
Doesn’t have a recycled bin featrue
by MarkH25 on 2019/02/06 17:30
This app’s function is okay, and works good. the user interface is kind of confusing when doing group documents, ocr contents can’t be copied separately and the delete document delete the whole thing instead of the page.
Best of breed
by Aviris on 2019/02/05 14:44
I’ve had several other “scanner” apps on my phone, but I kept coming back to this one for its features and ease of use. I particularly like the way it allows you to have some fine grained control over the scan area and color depth after you capture each image (or you can just leave it alone - it does a great auto job, but if you only want one paragraph the manual adjustment comes in handy). Plus good support and updates make this app just about perfect for digital document capture.
New Update Doesn’t Work
by DasAllasIstDeutschland on 2019/02/04 18:24
This new update cannot open at all.
The best and easiest
by PureRainX on 2019/02/03 18:27
I do keep trying new scanners, just to keep up, but this one just nails it.
PDFs from cam made easy
by JayJay on 2019/02/02 23:18
I’m a strong proponent of this app... & they keep making it better (THANKS TO YOUR TINKERERS!). I’ve used this for business mostly, but recently shot the collected pictures gathered at a loved ones funeral... sharing the greater experience in one compressed file was much easier with those that could not attend.
Has to re-download all of my files after EVERY update
by HeRatesApps on 2019/01/28 18:05
This is a good app with one huge annoying flaw. After EVERY update, the app needs to re-download all of my previous scans from my iCloud. This is pretty annoying and, after a couple years of scans, takes quite a bit of time. I don’t understand why the app cannot cache the previous scans between updates.
They submit your personal info to 3rd parties
by iphonereviewer#2 on 2019/01/28 17:42
I've seen several reports from reliable sources that this app sends your GPS location data to a 3rd party tracker, Amplitude. I will not use this app and have advised friends & customers not to purchase it, and if they did, get a refund from Apple. It's pretty slimy to do this, Readdle.
Creditable
by Gencosays on 2019/01/27 21:54
These folks support what they sell, this is a wonderful tool to have, can’t say enough about it.... Get it, great value.
Always my go to scanning app
by Chriss29 on 2019/01/27 18:48
Very reliable , high quality and trusted for all my business needs. Thanks for the constant updates !!
Distortion!!!
by william.lw.w on 2019/01/26 22:42
The document has a big distortion when I save it to letter size. Looks like it does not support zoom in/out and keep the same aspect ratio.
Works great for me!
by Celtic-Frontier on 2019/01/22 17:05
Takes great images of documents. It converts documents to text very nicely. You can also export your images onto your Mac computer. I’m all around very happy with it.
SO annoyed I wasted money on this
by srhxo82 on 2019/01/22 15:19
I only purchased this app bc I need to scan documents and convert them to typed. I saw this app does that and after seeing great reviews I figured it would recognize the text. It didn’t and all it was, was gibberish.
Disappointed
by AJRX01 on 2019/01/20 01:35
I was terribly disappointed after using the app. Doesn't seem like anything shown in the pics. Couldn't even recognize clearly printed text. Text recognition was the main reason I paid for this app and haven't got any good results. I could only use it to take pictures and convert it to pdf which I can do with my iphone itself.
Hate this latest update
by ptcaparas on 2019/01/18 18:20
Ugh. The latest update mess it up. Now the app won’t send the scanned file even a one piece document.
Best Ever
by Drawde99 on 2019/01/18 12:55
This is the only scanning app I will ever need. After using Scanner Pro I have deleted all other scanning apps. I have tried several others. Not much to say, it works perfectly.
Ugh the new update 😫
by DaTruth17 on 2019/01/15 22:22
I really liked this app until the new update. Now it doesn’t automatically take the picture, you actually have to press. (Now that I’m writing this, it sounds stupid. It’s not that bad to have to press the button but it was just more convenient and WAY quicker before)
Do not buy a bad app like this
by AABUYER on 2019/01/14 00:40
Please stop selling this app and return money back to me. It is worse app. Using camera taking pictures of documents is better quality than using this app.
Outstanding
by Rust96 on 2019/01/13 11:07
Truly worth all five stars. One of the most used and excellent performing apps I have. Works equally as well on iPhone or iPad.
Great tool
by Charles J Pfohl on 2019/01/12 00:01
If you have docs that need to be uploaded to a PDF this is the tool for you. Yes I call it a tool on my iPhone that makes my work flow. Charles
I like this app, but...
by djt12#! on 2019/01/11 21:08
This app is very useful when it’s functional. Unfortunately, the app on my iPhone closes quickly or fails to load. This issue has increased recently.
I can’t connect to OneDrive
by Qinkki on 2019/01/11 09:23
It always reminds me of wrong username or password, and then exits,however,how do I input my username or password
Magical
by Icerio22 on 2019/01/10 04:42
What kind of black magic is this
AirDrop?
by bleurrrrrggg on 2019/01/07 19:54
How to use airdrop? Also, confusing auto/manual button. If it says ‘auto’ does that mean I’m in auto mode, or I need to click it to engage auto mode. Vice versa, if it says ‘manual’, am I currently in manual mode or do I need to click it to switch to manual mode?
Better every time!
by 134234wewewewewew on 2018/12/31 03:44
These guys work hard to continually improve this awesome scanning app. So intuitive and super reliable. Great work!
👍🏼
by Justi Lowe on 2018/12/28 10:42
It’s the best scanner app I’ve found so far!! But I wish you could share with WhatsApp and airdrop..
Office Lens does much better
by BorisXu98 on 2018/12/28 08:51
Very poor performance
This app is awful - no auto save after scan
by Suckituber on 2018/12/27 17:09
I have so many expense receipts missing because I would scan them and then close the app because I was in a rush traveling for work and moving about. If you don’t click “save” after the app has successfully scanned a receipt, it won’t save it! I have lost so many receipts because of this and do not recommend this app. They need to fix this!!
Great app
by Just1act on 2018/12/26 18:26
This comes in handy if you don’t have access to a copier or full size scanner. It eliminates paper clutter, which is my biggest downfall when it comes to organization. Easy sharing too.
Loses Scans and Bad Backup Features
by Naruwan on 2018/12/24 06:52
Paying user of the app for years now. Utility of the tool is great- I always am inclined to click on it when I need a scan. However: I have lost scans on 3 separate occasions now. Where I’ve scanned hundreds of files in the last year, I currently only have 5 files showing right now. I have not changed phones. Also, syncing to cloud drives is buggy. Creates random new folders repeatedly. What good is a good scan app if you cannot trust it to keep your files? I have simply lost trust in this tool. No matter how good the functions are, if you can’t figure out a way to keep the data on the phone/in the app, it is UNUSABLE. Therefore it deserves 1 star.
Problem
by hector23@ on 2018/12/19 20:04
Can you fix the problem , I can’t upload to one drive , it was working good
Fax
by Land7 on 2018/12/19 13:27
Seria bueno añadirle el fax
Now 5 stars
by ctillerjr on 2018/12/18 13:36
I had given scanner pro only 4 stars because I was switching back-and-forth with TurboScan. Turbo scan allowed you to crop better without moving multiple points. Now with the new update on scanner pro they have fix this challenge and I have DELETED Turbo scan
This is a life saver!
by bigoceandave on 2018/12/18 11:52
I have to say that this app has made my life easier. I often have to scan, sometimes 100s of documents, and instead of feeding them one at a time or using a balky hand scanner using this app streamlined the process and cuts down my time scanning by more than half.
Privacy issue with camera & photos

New review: I used to love this app, but now it seems it needs to get too many permissions. All I want to do is scan (& sometimes OCR) images *I* choose. I don’t want to give it access to the camera, and I don’t want it automatically scanning my photos library. If you turn those features off, THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO OPEN A PHOTO. (The reason is that the “open photos library” buttons are hidden in the Radar screen and the Camera screen, so if you turn those off, there’s no separate Open Photo Library button.) What you should be able to do is pick one or more photos in the Photos app, tap the share button, tap Open With Scanner Pro, and have those photos opened in 1 document in Scanner Pro. That would be super easy and maintain all your privacy. I will start to look for another app that respects my privacy. Old review: Everything you'd ever want. Oftentimes when rating apps, you're left to ponder why a certain obvious feature was left out. But this app is missing nothing. It's easy to learn, easy to use, syncs with iCloud and Dropbox, and has really great output. What's not to love?
Tired of this app

Takes way too long to send pdfs, took over 24 hours to email a PDF. Do not use in a pinch, if you're low on time.

A suggestion

I’m using Scanner Pro to organize my very messy music files. I would love to be able to copy a file and place it in a folder or make a playlist to use when I perform.
NOT PRO APP. Need to add Fold inside Fold feature
by lilmikeinfiniti on 2018/12/06 13:27
Need to be able to add Fold inside Fold feature and it will be a 5 star app. Until than they should take Pro off from the name of the app. It just a nice simple scanner app still.
Saved scans all disappeared
by robbietre on 2018/12/05 06:30
I've used the app for about 2 years. Today all my files saved in the app disappeared. This was the second time it happened, and this time really hurts. Makes it worse since the app seems to have a hard time backing up to Dropbox. Some of the files remain in Dropbox, even though they do not appear in the app. Strange.
Great app
by Zanderz1010 on 2018/12/04 01:11
All around good app
DOES NOT LET YOU PRINT FROM APP!

Cmon Readdle, scan but then cant print?
perfect app
by snack it on 2018/12/01 09:50
i was blind complaining about missing iCloud integration. Needed to enable it in iCloud settings. Would be nice anyway to have some hint from the app if its not enabled. Otherwise its perfect app for scanning .
Easy!!

Trashed by an update
by CPRMIN on 2018/11/28 23:49
This was a favorite app which worked great on my I-phone until the last update. Now, scrolling through scanned items to locate a file is a mess. Large gaps appear, many files are missing, or the entire file select screen is empty. After scanning, the previews of your scanned files vanishes. The only way to return to the files you have scanned is to close and reopen the app.
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.
Worth the money

This is an awesome app. You don’t need a scanner of this app is with you.

Another great app by Readdle!
by fhbgvduiytyu on 2018/11/20 16:28
This app has been an amazing tool. I have used to to scan tons of papers. The OCR feature is great. Though I do not know how the integration with the Documents app works or how it is supposed to work. For me it does not really do anything. I don’t really use it anyways so it is not a problem for me. Thank you for another great app Readdle!

Way better than other scanners: faster read & easier to scan multiple pages

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.
Fantastic For An iPhone
by Dennyhayes on 2018/08/08 16:26
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
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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. 👍
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!
Game-changer for this working musician
by gtar dorq 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.
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.
Consistently the best most reliable scanning ever!
by Mint is good on 2018/11/05 01:00
I recommend this app to everyone I talk to you! If you are out on the road at jobsites in the office at home there is simply nothing better than this app to provide consistent clear accurate and easily transmittable PDF documents of anything. By far the best app for this process I have ever run across I wish more developers for apps would do things in their apps as simply as this app does scanning. There is simply no reason to buy any other app for scanning documents with your tablet or phone period! And no I am not a paid reviewer.
Built In OCR!
by Lizzie Lynne on 2017/10/12 18:23
I’ve had this app for a couple of years and it works wonderfully. I try to be as paperless as possible and I use it to scan all sorts of things. I’m working on a genealogy project and once used Scanner Pro to scan a 148 page family history book. 😳 It was much faster than using my flatbed scanner. Now I’ve discovered the built-in OCR function and it’s a huge time saver for me. The text recognition is quite accurate, only requiring a quick fix here and there. Now I won’t need to retype documents and it will save me a lot time.
Still the best scanner app
by cfanaic on 2017/11/09 03:06
I just went back and tried every scanner app in the App Store again after using Scanner Pro for a long time and it is obvious to me that Scanner Pro is still the way to go. That being said, Readdle still insists on their own, very specific UI that can be confusing and difficult at times. It doesn’t feel very much like a native iOS app. I won’t take any stars off because every scanner app has a bit of a funky UI, but it’s worth noting because it’s the one thing keeping some of Readdle‘ apps from being perfect.
Absolutely great all I wish is it also ran on the Mac
by markTheDeveloperAndITExpert on 2017/08/31 19:20
I am a software developer and my wife is a digital imaging expert. I know my stuff. The filing could be better and it would be absolutely fantastic available on the Mac. The images are available through iCloud but I would love to do the filing manipulation and imaging from my mac also. Maybe they already have this but what difference does it make I am giving them five stars because they get this ball out of the park. You can also access documents stored on the iCloud from your Mac or browser.
Best Scanner app out there
by ShadowVA3 on 2017/12/31 16:18
I have tried many other scanner apps, including Adobe Scan and Scannable, and Scanner Pro blows them away for scan quality and features. The app captures the true item, and not the area around it, which is a problem with the others. The Workflows are also the best feature ever! I use Dropbox and Evernote, and I created workflows to store items in different locations, and it is all done in one click! Don’t be fooled by other brand names. This app blows all of them away!
Great app
by Flipper 668 on 2017/11/03 16:17
Works perfectly use it all the time I have used this app for about 2 years now and have never had any issues with it . It works great for everything I need I drive a truck so I don’t have access to an office or office equipment this app replaces all of that stuff I’ve used it to fax print and email documents and and all of the documents come out great on the receiving end I would recommend this app to anyone that has to be away from an office and needs to still remain connected and able to send documents
Privacy issue with camera & photos
by Púca on 2018/12/17 13:03
New review: I used to love this app, but now it seems it needs to get too many permissions. All I want to do is scan (& sometimes OCR) images *I* choose. I don’t want to give it access to the camera, and I don’t want it automatically scanning my photos library. If you turn those features off, THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO OPEN A PHOTO. (The reason is that the “open photos library” buttons are hidden in the Radar screen and the Camera screen, so if you turn those off, there’s no separate Open Photo Library button.) What you should be able to do is pick one or more photos in the Photos app, tap the share button, tap Open With Scanner Pro, and have those photos opened in 1 document in Scanner Pro. That would be super easy and maintain all your privacy. I will start to look for another app that respects my privacy. Old review: Everything you'd ever want. Oftentimes when rating apps, you're left to ponder why a certain obvious feature was left out. But this app is missing nothing. It's easy to learn, easy to use, syncs with iCloud and Dropbox, and has really great output. What's not to love?
Upload freeze
by punjiba on 2018/06/08 04:03
I’ve used Scanner Pro through many phones and mostly it works quite well. Lately though, I can’t open a multi page document I’ve scanned several days ago. I usually scan three or four pages and the view page has no page count and gives me a “Cannot Open Document” message. I’ve opened it and viewed the scans since saving them but I guess it’s trying to back it up again or something. I’m looking for another app because I have to be able to view a document when “I” want and not when it’s convenient for the app. Sorry Readdle, you dropped the ball on this one.
My favorite Scanner app
by Michae1 on 2018/04/05 15:52
I’ve tried a handful of paid scanner apps and this is my favorite, largely because of its good quality scans, OCR and file management. But it desperately needs the ability to create nested folders in its iCloud storage. And working with its other Readdle app ‘PDF Expert’ is really wonky. Scan a file with Scanner Pro and open it later in PDF Expert to make some annotations, and those edits are only visible in PDF Expert. And files created with PDF Expert and saved into the Scanner Pro folders are invisible to Scanner Pro. Would love to see better compatibility with other Readdle apps.
Excellent, highly recommend this app
by Nickname578 on 2019/03/02 18:58
This app has saved me untold hours of scanning. I can now very easily turn my filing system into one that is completely electronic. I now routinely scan my documents with this app and shred the papers. I save directly to iCloud and then later if I so choose place them in the appropriate locations in my filing system on my Mac. The document recognition algorithms are very good, commonly finding boundaries of papers and sizing the final document correctly. This really is quite a good app which I use all the time.
Best of breed
by Aviris on 2019/02/05 14:44
I’ve had several other “scanner” apps on my phone, but I kept coming back to this one for its features and ease of use. I particularly like the way it allows you to have some fine grained control over the scan area and color depth after you capture each image (or you can just leave it alone - it does a great auto job, but if you only want one paragraph the manual adjustment comes in handy). Plus good support and updates make this app just about perfect for digital document capture.
Fantastic app with a single flaw
by ClintonTyree on 2018/07/15 15:54
Scanner Pro is sincerely one of the more useful apps I’ve installed on my iPhone. The image distortion repair works fantastically and the OCR is surprisingly accurate, doubly so considering it’s a mobile device app. The one change I would make (and the reason for four stars instead of five) has less to do with the app itself than with the scanning service: it offers no fax receipt confirmation. Just throw your $.99 and document into the wind and hope it makes it to its intended destination. Aside from that, it has definitely been money well spent.
Crashes and Detects Text Poorly
by zfJames on 2017/11/06 22:22
I bought this app to use on an iPad Pro and I have been universally unimpressed. I love Readdle’s Spark and PDF Expert, but when I downloaded this app the first time, its detection of text was extremely poor and did not see underlined text correctly. The pictures of my document were taken in excellent light against a dark background and I had written them in Times New Roman size 12 font, but the scanner translated the text incorrectly any time that any formatting existed at all. In addition when I had reset my iPad for another reason and re-downloaded the app, it didn’t download the English language detection package and now crashes whenever I open it with an internet connection. Totally useless and a waste of my money.
Best product!
by GL6632 on 2017/10/17 18:07
I do genealogy. And this product is wonderful! Previously when speaking with relatives or persons of interest and I asked if I might borrow a letter to make a copy or remove a photo from a frame, (after they caught their composure ... how dare I ask such a thing). The answer was a resounding NO! With this app, it’s not a problem. I don’t even need them to remove it from the wall. I am then able to make edits and print on my photo paper. Or place notes and documents in corresponding files. It’s a wonderful product.
Who needs a copier or fax machine!
by Jeff4NoMoreLies on 2017/09/19 02:17
I needed to cookie and fax some documents to a company while out at a jobsite. I thought about going to a store to fax the documents but realized I had this app and wondered if it faxed and it did. I tried it and sent 5 documents for 99¢ and didn't have to drive anywhere or loose valuable time searching for a place to fax from. This app is invaluable as a tool for the busy person who needs a quick solution for document handling. September 2017 and I'm still using this app and loving it!!
Love This App
by Mickey330 on 2018/07/13 15:50
I’ve used this app for years. It’s an awesome product that helps me keep track of receipts and such. Yes - I should have reviewed years ago! 10 stars! I’m writing the review now to thank the developers for updating the app to work with iOS 12 betas. I’ve got the beta on my iPad and this app didn’t work with it. I was dealing because I have the app on my iOS 11 phone and also because ... beta! But the developers updated it - for a beta! How cool is that?! So, now I’m happily continuing to use this app on both my iDevices. Thanks.
Lived by the scan and fax functions through house refi
by cybercookie72 on 2017/11/23 12:28
I got this app to scan and fax things back to the bank during a refi on my house and ended up living by this app for about 2 months. It has stayed on my devices since and is now my fax machine for pretty much everything and has been for the last year. The option for iCloud saves has also been a life saver many times. All you need is a good printer, this app and you can pretty much run a business LoL or refi a house in my case.
Exceeded expectations
by Buck&Baron on 2017/08/20 16:34
When my multipurpose Dell scanner printer died I thought I would give this a try. Usually I need to scan 2-3 times a week, we've found it a great tool. Love it, the Quality exceeded the vintage scanners previously used for documents and contracts. With PDF Color or B&W and the ability to save quickly to dropbox, now docs are saved too my notebook in my office. Really works great for scanning 15 pgs or less. Mobile, portable and quick, even as scanning docs in My car and emailing them rapidly.
Best scanning app ever!
by Crazy cook259 on 2018/09/16 02:46
I absolutely love this app it takes great photos and copies of documents or photos. I took a picture of a photograph with my iPhone the picture was grainy. I scanned it with Scanner Pro an the picture was perfect and gorgeous of my niece and it’s using the same camera. I can scan a five page document save it attach it to an email and have it sent in a couple of minutes as opposed to many minutes using my printer/scanner and laptop computer. Love it. Thank you for a great app.
Excellent product! Scanner Pro is the best!
by RadioWV on 2017/09/30 15:04
I have tried out probably 10 or more scanner apps including the new iOS 11 Notes ability to scan. It works but it does a poor job at auto correcting for imperfections in the capture! Scanner Pro can take something barely legible and make a perfect PDF document of it in seconds! I find it easiest to use and get the best results! Go ahead and buy it! It will NOT disappoint! Which generally has been my experiences with all Readdle Products!
Must Have App
by danminkoda on 2017/12/21 02:47
This has been a staple for my business for years now. I haven’t even tried some of the other options out there because this app leaves nothing to be desired for me. I scan receipts/documents/etc. directly to a folder on Google Drive and then file them in my Drive where I want them. The scanning is great and it fixes skewed documents really really well. I’ve recommended this app to many people who are all happy with it also. Keep up the great work!
A must have tool
by KCQubed on 2017/10/25 11:49
I have been using Scanner Pro for years and it is one of those apps which just gets better and better. I travel a great deal and this tool is a fantastic asset! Whenever I get a receipt I immediately scan it and within a minutes my bill is off to my office to be collated into my claim. Even if you have to provide the original versions of your receipts that is a great tool to quickly make a back up just in case you lose the originals.
Better alternatives for free
by AhmedMust on 2018/09/26 21:50
It takes forever to recognize half of the stuff i scan when it does it’s alright the quality’s not as good as the other apps there’s a better app and it’s free and it recognizes it really quick the app is called Evernote scan I’ve been using scanner pro for years and it still hasn’t improved Evernote is relatively new so thats sad that is better and is my go to app until the developers of scanner pro make it as good as that app and scanner pro has been around for years so it’s sad that i had to switch and which is why i gave it two stars is only because it’s very easy to save to files and etc...
Great App & Great Support
by VicSmith on 2018/06/23 19:31
I use this app primarily for scanning music and sharing it to my forScore app. I have to first share to Adobe Pro, then from there to forScore. Would be better if I could share directly to forScore. Still this is the best scanning app for the purpose I have found. Follow up: The developer responded directly to me with instructions on how to accomplish a direct share to forScore. “please open Scanner Pro - select the file needed > Share > Open In > select forScore”. This does exactly what I need. Great app and Great support.

What happened????
by Vidalrick on 2019/04/24 04:53
Loved the app! I’ve been using it for years. Love the connection to OneDrive! But since the last update it seems they ruined the app, it’s crashing, connection with OneDrive now working properly! Please, pull this version out until it’s fixed!!!
Simply the best App ever made .
by Eogarcia3 on 2019/04/23 12:26
It’s the best tool for Business or Personal use just get it .
Used to work
by Darren784 on 2019/04/19 15:11
This was a fantastic app, took great pictures, trimmed them intuitively, good detail, and was very easy to email scans or send them to my Dropbox. People at work were always surprised at the quality of the scans, just as good as the xerox! However this app has not worked at all on my iPhone 6s is about a month. It will no longer snap a picture automatically and locks up if take the picture manually. Luckily still works in my iPad so I’ll have to resort to using the iPad as opposed to finding another scanner app. I’ve rebooted and removed and reinstalled the app with no resolution. I assume they’ll get around the fixing this versions bug someday.
Not sure what happened
by Mohamad Sobh on 2019/04/19 09:32
The app was working perfectly but after the latest update it keeps crashing after I take a scan of the second page of a document (i.e. first picture is ok, but when adding a second to the scan deck the app crashes).
What happened to PDFs?
by Miss Tallulah on 2019/04/18 03:35
I’m scanning a document, selecting “black & white document” (NOT Photo) yet when I try to email it, it’s reacting as a jpeg, asking what size I want to send it as. When the document is received, it’s a jpeg, not a pdf. I’m very disappointed. I’ve been using this app for years. I hope this is just a glitch that will get fixed quickly.
Documents disappear
by keyprav on 2019/04/17 21:56
I’ve been using this app for quite a while. I’m a researcher, I scan a Lot of materials in libraries, etc. recently I noticed that scanned documents disappear and then miraculously reappear a few days later. There might be something with the upload process. I’ll have to go back to TurboScan which is less convenient much reliable
Harder with each update
by KevinDanielChase on 2019/04/16 00:10
I have loved this app, but with each update they make it harder to email yourself (at least in Outlook) a PDF of your receipts. They have recently been failing on delivering the final product this app is meant to do.
Removal of “add service in share as:”
by Amir panahi on 2019/04/13 17:32
You removed “add service “from “share as: menu “in this update . By this update You made us have no choice to remove the apps we do not like to be there. Please restore this menu to previous one. If you did this i ‘d score 5 stars for this app. Thanks a lot in advance

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.
Working just beautifully
by ElMo_Palmira on 2019/04/12 05:16
Love this app, it syncs with multiple iOS devices using the icloud, the scans are very good quality. I am a happy customer.
Issues saving
by Hsalaman1 on 2019/04/11 20:47
I used to be a die hard fan of the app but as of lately it doesn’t save any of my scans. Been having issues losing important work documents.
Scanner Pro works for me daily!
by K4KW on 2019/04/09 17:59
I use it every day to scan bills of lading and other essentials for work. I'm a truck driver and the ability to scan and organize into folders makes my life much easier. Automatically uploads to the Dropbox folder of my choice. Love, love, love it!
Love it but suddenly glitch?
by Lizgeotx on 2019/04/07 17:05
The app is crashing and won't save my scans. This is the first time I've had a problem with the app in years. What happened? I made a scan, clicked save. Then the file is nowhere and the app crashes.
Very Buggy
by Jebus91 on 2019/04/05 18:52
Have a lot of sync errors with Dropbox , often crashes because of this I believe. Edit : the app is just buggy as hell to the point where it wouldn’t open and just stayed in a black screen . It has problems to handle big scans like books and often files disappear
Great but Small Improvement Needed
by Private W on 2019/04/04 17:44
This app is the number one scanner by far!! The only thing that would make it the best is being able to create a folder within the folder.
Doesn’t work anymore
by Longmire85 on 2019/03/25 03:03
No matter what I try to scan, the app buttons will freeze and nothing will work after that. I even uninstalled and reinstalled.
Wouldn’t send email
by AKAAMANDAPANDA on 2019/03/19 15:49
WiFi on, clearly took the scan and the send button never allowed me to send. Really annoyed, waste of $3.99.
New version is buggy
by Calakmul on 2019/03/15 14:51
I been a happy Scanner Pro customer for a while. Unfortunately the latest version is buggy. Every other time I try to open the app it crashes with no explanation. Please fix the problem ASAP.
Unable to switch to PDF
by PDF GaL on 2019/03/15 03:59
Dear Scanner Pro folks, I’ve loved this app and recommended until recently. This low rating reflects a new problem. My scans now are automatically turned into JPEGs but I need PDFs. The PDF option isn’t showing up. In one instance when it did and I hit PDF, it remained in JPEG. What is the solution? I’m going to have to switch apps if I’m unable to make it work. Thanks!
the fax its not work with me
by maitherm on 2019/03/14 11:56
the fax its not work with me i want to refund
Needs message support
by AlaskanNightWolf on 2019/03/12 13:25
Great app, everything functions as it should. I have to do a round about to get a pdf into a text message. Will add one more star if this capability is added. Right now I have to extract to pdf, upload to one drive, open one drive and send the file via text(without link to OneDrive/ actual file). A lot of unnecessary steps to get it in a text message.
Major password issue
by Wendell319 on 2019/03/10 17:29
There is a major password flaw with this application that the developer is incapable of understanding let alone fixing. Once you have added a password to a document you can never remove it. If you try to remove it a different password (the PERMISSIONS password) is requested. There is no way to set the permissions password and the App provider are disowning any management of it. This is important in the use case where you password protect a document to send across email (as you should) but want to remove that password to store the document in a secured environment
very disappointed
by jsjjsjjjsjjsaskkkshsh on 2019/03/07 04:26
a waste of money and more importantly, time. too difficult to use, no obvious way of scanning in color, and not exportable with ease.
Best App scanner
by Chandal21 on 2019/03/06 22:08
I think this is the first time that I write a review because I am blown away by the quality and the this app works. Great job :)
There r better one out there for free or at less cost
by takeoff9048 on 2019/03/06 09:13
I m huge fun if the pdf expert frim the same developer although this app was a waste of money for me. Never did the work as expected.
Excellent App
by panchozz1 on 2019/03/05 06:04
Very fast app with booting up as well as scanning. Quite good camera action, good quality, only issue is camera takes pic as soon as it can, sometimes causing visual movement on scan with wobble or blur. Smooth and quick interface Does exactly what its mean to do 9/10!
Nothing better for periodic digitization of business documents!
by Fitztacular on 2019/03/05 01:24
Title says it all. Using this app to send photos/scans of documents to the cloud is so much easier than putting the documents in my scanner, sending them to my computer, and finally manually dragging them over to the relevant cloud folder. Highly recommended.
Feature request: support iOS Files app
by flyingsnowball on 2019/03/03 23:57
Would love to get my scanned PDFs to cloud services that are supported through Apple’a iOS Files app (OwnCloud and NextCloud come to mind). Thanks.
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?
Stop Working crashes Constantly
by Trilouist on 2019/03/02 21:16
It’s become a total chore. Used to work beautifully. Now it crashes every time I try to save a document

Excellent app!
by Anthony Hud on 2019/03/02 02:12
UPDATE: fax confirmation!! My anxiety thanks you!! This is hands down the best scanner app on the App Store. It's saved my butt so many times. Every professional should have this app, as it is incredibly useful.
Great app!
by timboslice802 on 2019/03/02 01:22
Very professional quality scans.
A must have
by Ramya logesh on 2019/02/28 17:33
Very useful and wonderful app for Scanning. The OCR text recognition was flawless. One improvement would be on adding Edit feature on sorting the pages after scan. I had missed pg 15 of 125 pages document and had to redo.
you are the best guys
by Massage mania on 2019/02/27 17:34
i paid and tried a lot of scanner programs in the store, automatic scanning is really really great and saves alot of times when i scan a lot of documents, you are the best and the most affordable one, thank you guys, could you also add fast signing, putting date and writing name or initials with finger ability that would be great without openning your other app:)
18.97 hit my account

One annoyance but good scanning abilities
by sojohnlike on 2019/02/23 00:12
Putting the sheet against a dark background like black or grey usually results in fast auto captures. I absolutely hate how the app keeps asking if I want to enable auto upload every time I upload a file to OneDrive. If I wanted the feature on I would’ve turned it on by now. I upload my files to specific folders each time and don’t want auto upload.
Does fine until size of file gets large
by train-jetski on 2019/02/22 15:42
Tried to scan a 28 page doc. The app would not let me share because “it might be blocked” with no way to get around the warning. Very frustrating. Could only upload the file to Dropbox, but that split the doc into 28 separate pages. How about letting g me send the file and let my email servers pass judgement on file size. Big files just have more to love.
Easy to use
by Vegasblondie on 2019/02/22 04:05
Downloaded and used right away. Intuitive design and function, great app!!!
Very disappointed
by trabadero on 2019/02/21 01:24
This app request full access of all files on google drive - not only folder or files it creates. The border detection needs constant correction
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..
Problems in recent update
by gunnkun on 2019/02/15 18:00
With the most recent update the app no longer scans on my iPhone SE. no settings have changed, but it will not automatically capture a document, and if I manually press the button the app stalls. It will still show that it is recognizing the edges of the document, but never captures it. I can’t get past the capture screen to save the document anymore.
Incredible!
by HaoleLove on 2019/02/14 14:47
This is one of the best apps of all time! It’s absolutely incredible. It’s super easy to use and saves a lot of time. Best money ever spent (and I never buy apps). Thank you, to the developer, for what you do!
Absolute Junk
by Bogiebox on 2019/02/14 00:32
This program DOES NOT WORK. If you try to access your photos IT decides what photos it will convert, not what you want converted. I have images of pure text that it will not allow me to access. So, I printed the pages out and scanned it. NOTHING. It does nothing but convert it to an uneditble PDF. THERE IS NO TEXT CONVERSION. If there is, it’s hidden deep inside the program an you have to get a degree to lean how to use it. This is a total waste of money.
Better Stability
by bobbyleejones on 2019/02/12 23:20
I raised my rating to “4” since the latest version is a lot more stable. My “4 rating” comes from the fact that I use other scanners, such as Microsoft OneNote, for scanning stuff, and they’re pretty good too. I use this app for making PDF’s for eink readers. This app would be more useful to me if it could create small pdf files with png images of a certain dpi (and size) and a specific number of indexed colors (grayscale colors) using nearest neighbor interpolation. Being able to erase shadows would be nice as well.
How do I send this as a gift?
by Rockrabbit45 on 2019/02/12 15:34
I’m needing to send this app to my colleagues as a gift. I know if they try the app they will gift it to others. So how can I send this app as a gift? Thank you.
Stupid decision
by sam_modi333 on 2019/02/08 21:25
Y would you guys take out iCloud service without informing your customers? Will never recommend you guys... this is stupid... just to check my previous doc. I have to login to iCloud...
Do not buy
by Rykaroni on 2019/02/07 20:37
There is a glitch with iPhone facial recognition where it takes about 6 or 7 swipes up to unlock the phone if you happened to lock your iPhone with the app still open. I’ve contacted customer support with this issue but there seems to be a lack of product updating or support for the latest phones
Doesn’t have a recycled bin featrue
by MarkH25 on 2019/02/06 17:30
This app’s function is okay, and works good. the user interface is kind of confusing when doing group documents, ocr contents can’t be copied separately and the delete document delete the whole thing instead of the page.
Best of breed
by Aviris on 2019/02/05 14:44
I’ve had several other “scanner” apps on my phone, but I kept coming back to this one for its features and ease of use. I particularly like the way it allows you to have some fine grained control over the scan area and color depth after you capture each image (or you can just leave it alone - it does a great auto job, but if you only want one paragraph the manual adjustment comes in handy). Plus good support and updates make this app just about perfect for digital document capture.
New Update Doesn’t Work

This new update cannot open at all.
The best and easiest
by PureRainX on 2019/02/03 18:27
I do keep trying new scanners, just to keep up, but this one just nails it.
PDFs from cam made easy
by JayJay on 2019/02/02 23:18
I’m a strong proponent of this app... & they keep making it better (THANKS TO YOUR TINKERERS!). I’ve used this for business mostly, but recently shot the collected pictures gathered at a loved ones funeral... sharing the greater experience in one compressed file was much easier with those that could not attend.
Has to re-download all of my files after EVERY update
by HeRatesApps on 2019/01/28 18:05
This is a good app with one huge annoying flaw. After EVERY update, the app needs to re-download all of my previous scans from my iCloud. This is pretty annoying and, after a couple years of scans, takes quite a bit of time. I don’t understand why the app cannot cache the previous scans between updates.
They submit your personal info to 3rd parties
by iphonereviewer#2 on 2019/01/28 17:42
I've seen several reports from reliable sources that this app sends your GPS location data to a 3rd party tracker, Amplitude. I will not use this app and have advised friends & customers not to purchase it, and if they did, get a refund from Apple. It's pretty slimy to do this, Readdle.
Creditable

Distortion!!!
by william.lw.w on 2019/01/26 22:42
The document has a big distortion when I save it to letter size. Looks like it does not support zoom in/out and keep the same aspect ratio.
Works great for me!
by Celtic-Frontier on 2019/01/22 17:05
Takes great images of documents. It converts documents to text very nicely. You can also export your images onto your Mac computer. I’m all around very happy with it.
SO annoyed I wasted money on this
by srhxo82 on 2019/01/22 15:19
I only purchased this app bc I need to scan documents and convert them to typed. I saw this app does that and after seeing great reviews I figured it would recognize the text. It didn’t and all it was, was gibberish.
Disappointed
by AJRX01 on 2019/01/20 01:35
I was terribly disappointed after using the app. Doesn't seem like anything shown in the pics. Couldn't even recognize clearly printed text. Text recognition was the main reason I paid for this app and haven't got any good results. I could only use it to take pictures and convert it to pdf which I can do with my iphone itself.
Hate this latest update
by ptcaparas on 2019/01/18 18:20
Ugh. The latest update mess it up. Now the app won’t send the scanned file even a one piece document.
Best Ever
by Drawde99 on 2019/01/18 12:55
This is the only scanning app I will ever need. After using Scanner Pro I have deleted all other scanning apps. I have tried several others. Not much to say, it works perfectly.
Ugh the new update 😫
by DaTruth17 on 2019/01/15 22:22
I really liked this app until the new update. Now it doesn’t automatically take the picture, you actually have to press. (Now that I’m writing this, it sounds stupid. It’s not that bad to have to press the button but it was just more convenient and WAY quicker before)
Do not buy a bad app like this
by AABUYER on 2019/01/14 00:40
Please stop selling this app and return money back to me. It is worse app. Using camera taking pictures of documents is better quality than using this app.
Outstanding
by Rust96 on 2019/01/13 11:07
Truly worth all five stars. One of the most used and excellent performing apps I have. Works equally as well on iPhone or iPad.

AirDrop?
by bleurrrrrggg on 2019/01/07 19:54
How to use airdrop? Also, confusing auto/manual button. If it says ‘auto’ does that mean I’m in auto mode, or I need to click it to engage auto mode. Vice versa, if it says ‘manual’, am I currently in manual mode or do I need to click it to switch to manual mode?
Better every time!

Office Lens does much better
by BorisXu98 on 2018/12/28 08:51

This app is awful - no auto save after scan
by Suckituber on 2018/12/27 17:09
I have so many expense receipts missing because I would scan them and then close the app because I was in a rush traveling for work and moving about. If you don’t click “save” after the app has successfully scanned a receipt, it won’t save it! I have lost so many receipts because of this and do not recommend this app. They need to fix this!!
Great app
by Just1act on 2018/12/26 18:26
This comes in handy if you don’t have access to a copier or full size scanner. It eliminates paper clutter, which is my biggest downfall when it comes to organization. Easy sharing too.
Loses Scans and Bad Backup Features
by Naruwan on 2018/12/24 06:52
Paying user of the app for years now. Utility of the tool is great- I always am inclined to click on it when I need a scan. However: I have lost scans on 3 separate occasions now. Where I’ve scanned hundreds of files in the last year, I currently only have 5 files showing right now. I have not changed phones. Also, syncing to cloud drives is buggy. Creates random new folders repeatedly. What good is a good scan app if you cannot trust it to keep your files? I have simply lost trust in this tool. No matter how good the functions are, if you can’t figure out a way to keep the data on the phone/in the app, it is UNUSABLE. Therefore it deserves 1 star.

Now 5 stars
by ctillerjr on 2018/12/18 13:36
I had given scanner pro only 4 stars because I was switching back-and-forth with TurboScan. Turbo scan allowed you to crop better without moving multiple points. Now with the new update on scanner pro they have fix this challenge and I have DELETED Turbo scan
This is a life saver!
by bigoceandave on 2018/12/18 11:52
I have to say that this app has made my life easier. I often have to scan, sometimes 100s of documents, and instead of feeding them one at a time or using a balky hand scanner using this app streamlined the process and cuts down my time scanning by more than half.
Privacy issue with camera & photos
by Púca on 2018/12/17 13:03
New review: I used to love this app, but now it seems it needs to get too many permissions. All I want to do is scan (& sometimes OCR) images *I* choose. I don’t want to give it access to the camera, and I don’t want it automatically scanning my photos library. If you turn those features off, THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO OPEN A PHOTO. (The reason is that the “open photos library” buttons are hidden in the Radar screen and the Camera screen, so if you turn those off, there’s no separate Open Photo Library button.) What you should be able to do is pick one or more photos in the Photos app, tap the share button, tap Open With Scanner Pro, and have those photos opened in 1 document in Scanner Pro. That would be super easy and maintain all your privacy. I will start to look for another app that respects my privacy. Old review: Everything you'd ever want. Oftentimes when rating apps, you're left to ponder why a certain obvious feature was left out. But this app is missing nothing. It's easy to learn, easy to use, syncs with iCloud and Dropbox, and has really great output. What's not to love?

NOT PRO APP. Need to add Fold inside Fold feature
by lilmikeinfiniti on 2018/12/06 13:27
Need to be able to add Fold inside Fold feature and it will be a 5 star app. Until than they should take Pro off from the name of the app. It just a nice simple scanner app still.
Saved scans all disappeared
by robbietre on 2018/12/05 06:30
I've used the app for about 2 years. Today all my files saved in the app disappeared. This was the second time it happened, and this time really hurts. Makes it worse since the app seems to have a hard time backing up to Dropbox. Some of the files remain in Dropbox, even though they do not appear in the app. Strange.
Great app

Trashed by an update
by CPRMIN on 2018/11/28 23:49
This was a favorite app which worked great on my I-phone until the last update. Now, scrolling through scanned items to locate a file is a mess. Large gaps appear, many files are missing, or the entire file select screen is empty. After scanning, the previews of your scanned files vanishes. The only way to return to the files you have scanned is to close and reopen the app.
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.

This app has been an amazing tool. I have used to to scan tons of papers. The OCR feature is great. Though I do not know how the integration with the Documents app works or how it is supposed to work. For me it does not really do anything. I don’t really use it anyways so it is not a problem for me. Thank you for another great app Readdle!

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.

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.
Fantastic For An iPhone
by Dennyhayes on 2018/08/08 16:26
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
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.)
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. 👍
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!
Game-changer for this working musician
by gtar dorq 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.
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.
Consistently the best most reliable scanning ever!
by Mint is good on 2018/11/05 01:00
I recommend this app to everyone I talk to you! If you are out on the road at jobsites in the office at home there is simply nothing better than this app to provide consistent clear accurate and easily transmittable PDF documents of anything. By far the best app for this process I have ever run across I wish more developers for apps would do things in their apps as simply as this app does scanning. There is simply no reason to buy any other app for scanning documents with your tablet or phone period! And no I am not a paid reviewer.
Built In OCR!
by Lizzie Lynne on 2017/10/12 18:23
I’ve had this app for a couple of years and it works wonderfully. I try to be as paperless as possible and I use it to scan all sorts of things. I’m working on a genealogy project and once used Scanner Pro to scan a 148 page family history book. 😳 It was much faster than using my flatbed scanner. Now I’ve discovered the built-in OCR function and it’s a huge time saver for me. The text recognition is quite accurate, only requiring a quick fix here and there. Now I won’t need to retype documents and it will save me a lot time.
Still the best scanner app
by cfanaic on 2017/11/09 03:06
I just went back and tried every scanner app in the App Store again after using Scanner Pro for a long time and it is obvious to me that Scanner Pro is still the way to go. That being said, Readdle still insists on their own, very specific UI that can be confusing and difficult at times. It doesn’t feel very much like a native iOS app. I won’t take any stars off because every scanner app has a bit of a funky UI, but it’s worth noting because it’s the one thing keeping some of Readdle‘ apps from being perfect.
Absolutely great all I wish is it also ran on the Mac
by markTheDeveloperAndITExpert on 2017/08/31 19:20
I am a software developer and my wife is a digital imaging expert. I know my stuff. The filing could be better and it would be absolutely fantastic available on the Mac. The images are available through iCloud but I would love to do the filing manipulation and imaging from my mac also. Maybe they already have this but what difference does it make I am giving them five stars because they get this ball out of the park. You can also access documents stored on the iCloud from your Mac or browser.
Best Scanner app out there
by ShadowVA3 on 2017/12/31 16:18
I have tried many other scanner apps, including Adobe Scan and Scannable, and Scanner Pro blows them away for scan quality and features. The app captures the true item, and not the area around it, which is a problem with the others. The Workflows are also the best feature ever! I use Dropbox and Evernote, and I created workflows to store items in different locations, and it is all done in one click! Don’t be fooled by other brand names. This app blows all of them away!
Great app
by Flipper 668 on 2017/11/03 16:17
Works perfectly use it all the time I have used this app for about 2 years now and have never had any issues with it . It works great for everything I need I drive a truck so I don’t have access to an office or office equipment this app replaces all of that stuff I’ve used it to fax print and email documents and and all of the documents come out great on the receiving end I would recommend this app to anyone that has to be away from an office and needs to still remain connected and able to send documents
Privacy issue with camera & photos
by Púca on 2018/12/17 13:03
New review: I used to love this app, but now it seems it needs to get too many permissions. All I want to do is scan (& sometimes OCR) images *I* choose. I don’t want to give it access to the camera, and I don’t want it automatically scanning my photos library. If you turn those features off, THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO OPEN A PHOTO. (The reason is that the “open photos library” buttons are hidden in the Radar screen and the Camera screen, so if you turn those off, there’s no separate Open Photo Library button.) What you should be able to do is pick one or more photos in the Photos app, tap the share button, tap Open With Scanner Pro, and have those photos opened in 1 document in Scanner Pro. That would be super easy and maintain all your privacy. I will start to look for another app that respects my privacy. Old review: Everything you'd ever want. Oftentimes when rating apps, you're left to ponder why a certain obvious feature was left out. But this app is missing nothing. It's easy to learn, easy to use, syncs with iCloud and Dropbox, and has really great output. What's not to love?
Upload freeze
by punjiba on 2018/06/08 04:03
I’ve used Scanner Pro through many phones and mostly it works quite well. Lately though, I can’t open a multi page document I’ve scanned several days ago. I usually scan three or four pages and the view page has no page count and gives me a “Cannot Open Document” message. I’ve opened it and viewed the scans since saving them but I guess it’s trying to back it up again or something. I’m looking for another app because I have to be able to view a document when “I” want and not when it’s convenient for the app. Sorry Readdle, you dropped the ball on this one.
My favorite Scanner app
by Michae1 on 2018/04/05 15:52
I’ve tried a handful of paid scanner apps and this is my favorite, largely because of its good quality scans, OCR and file management. But it desperately needs the ability to create nested folders in its iCloud storage. And working with its other Readdle app ‘PDF Expert’ is really wonky. Scan a file with Scanner Pro and open it later in PDF Expert to make some annotations, and those edits are only visible in PDF Expert. And files created with PDF Expert and saved into the Scanner Pro folders are invisible to Scanner Pro. Would love to see better compatibility with other Readdle apps.
Excellent, highly recommend this app
by Nickname578 on 2019/03/02 18:58
This app has saved me untold hours of scanning. I can now very easily turn my filing system into one that is completely electronic. I now routinely scan my documents with this app and shred the papers. I save directly to iCloud and then later if I so choose place them in the appropriate locations in my filing system on my Mac. The document recognition algorithms are very good, commonly finding boundaries of papers and sizing the final document correctly. This really is quite a good app which I use all the time.
Best of breed
by Aviris on 2019/02/05 14:44
I’ve had several other “scanner” apps on my phone, but I kept coming back to this one for its features and ease of use. I particularly like the way it allows you to have some fine grained control over the scan area and color depth after you capture each image (or you can just leave it alone - it does a great auto job, but if you only want one paragraph the manual adjustment comes in handy). Plus good support and updates make this app just about perfect for digital document capture.
Fantastic app with a single flaw
by ClintonTyree on 2018/07/15 15:54
Scanner Pro is sincerely one of the more useful apps I’ve installed on my iPhone. The image distortion repair works fantastically and the OCR is surprisingly accurate, doubly so considering it’s a mobile device app. The one change I would make (and the reason for four stars instead of five) has less to do with the app itself than with the scanning service: it offers no fax receipt confirmation. Just throw your $.99 and document into the wind and hope it makes it to its intended destination. Aside from that, it has definitely been money well spent.
Crashes and Detects Text Poorly
by zfJames on 2017/11/06 22:22
I bought this app to use on an iPad Pro and I have been universally unimpressed. I love Readdle’s Spark and PDF Expert, but when I downloaded this app the first time, its detection of text was extremely poor and did not see underlined text correctly. The pictures of my document were taken in excellent light against a dark background and I had written them in Times New Roman size 12 font, but the scanner translated the text incorrectly any time that any formatting existed at all. In addition when I had reset my iPad for another reason and re-downloaded the app, it didn’t download the English language detection package and now crashes whenever I open it with an internet connection. Totally useless and a waste of my money.
Best product!
by GL6632 on 2017/10/17 18:07
I do genealogy. And this product is wonderful! Previously when speaking with relatives or persons of interest and I asked if I might borrow a letter to make a copy or remove a photo from a frame, (after they caught their composure ... how dare I ask such a thing). The answer was a resounding NO! With this app, it’s not a problem. I don’t even need them to remove it from the wall. I am then able to make edits and print on my photo paper. Or place notes and documents in corresponding files. It’s a wonderful product.
Who needs a copier or fax machine!
by Jeff4NoMoreLies on 2017/09/19 02:17
I needed to cookie and fax some documents to a company while out at a jobsite. I thought about going to a store to fax the documents but realized I had this app and wondered if it faxed and it did. I tried it and sent 5 documents for 99¢ and didn't have to drive anywhere or loose valuable time searching for a place to fax from. This app is invaluable as a tool for the busy person who needs a quick solution for document handling. September 2017 and I'm still using this app and loving it!!
Love This App
by Mickey330 on 2018/07/13 15:50
I’ve used this app for years. It’s an awesome product that helps me keep track of receipts and such. Yes - I should have reviewed years ago! 10 stars! I’m writing the review now to thank the developers for updating the app to work with iOS 12 betas. I’ve got the beta on my iPad and this app didn’t work with it. I was dealing because I have the app on my iOS 11 phone and also because ... beta! But the developers updated it - for a beta! How cool is that?! So, now I’m happily continuing to use this app on both my iDevices. Thanks.
Lived by the scan and fax functions through house refi
by cybercookie72 on 2017/11/23 12:28
I got this app to scan and fax things back to the bank during a refi on my house and ended up living by this app for about 2 months. It has stayed on my devices since and is now my fax machine for pretty much everything and has been for the last year. The option for iCloud saves has also been a life saver many times. All you need is a good printer, this app and you can pretty much run a business LoL or refi a house in my case.
Exceeded expectations
by Buck&Baron on 2017/08/20 16:34
When my multipurpose Dell scanner printer died I thought I would give this a try. Usually I need to scan 2-3 times a week, we've found it a great tool. Love it, the Quality exceeded the vintage scanners previously used for documents and contracts. With PDF Color or B&W and the ability to save quickly to dropbox, now docs are saved too my notebook in my office. Really works great for scanning 15 pgs or less. Mobile, portable and quick, even as scanning docs in My car and emailing them rapidly.
Best scanning app ever!
by Crazy cook259 on 2018/09/16 02:46
I absolutely love this app it takes great photos and copies of documents or photos. I took a picture of a photograph with my iPhone the picture was grainy. I scanned it with Scanner Pro an the picture was perfect and gorgeous of my niece and it’s using the same camera. I can scan a five page document save it attach it to an email and have it sent in a couple of minutes as opposed to many minutes using my printer/scanner and laptop computer. Love it. Thank you for a great app.
Excellent product! Scanner Pro is the best!
by RadioWV on 2017/09/30 15:04
I have tried out probably 10 or more scanner apps including the new iOS 11 Notes ability to scan. It works but it does a poor job at auto correcting for imperfections in the capture! Scanner Pro can take something barely legible and make a perfect PDF document of it in seconds! I find it easiest to use and get the best results! Go ahead and buy it! It will NOT disappoint! Which generally has been my experiences with all Readdle Products!
Must Have App
by danminkoda on 2017/12/21 02:47
This has been a staple for my business for years now. I haven’t even tried some of the other options out there because this app leaves nothing to be desired for me. I scan receipts/documents/etc. directly to a folder on Google Drive and then file them in my Drive where I want them. The scanning is great and it fixes skewed documents really really well. I’ve recommended this app to many people who are all happy with it also. Keep up the great work!
A must have tool
by KCQubed on 2017/10/25 11:49
I have been using Scanner Pro for years and it is one of those apps which just gets better and better. I travel a great deal and this tool is a fantastic asset! Whenever I get a receipt I immediately scan it and within a minutes my bill is off to my office to be collated into my claim. Even if you have to provide the original versions of your receipts that is a great tool to quickly make a back up just in case you lose the originals.
Better alternatives for free
by AhmedMust on 2018/09/26 21:50
It takes forever to recognize half of the stuff i scan when it does it’s alright the quality’s not as good as the other apps there’s a better app and it’s free and it recognizes it really quick the app is called Evernote scan I’ve been using scanner pro for years and it still hasn’t improved Evernote is relatively new so thats sad that is better and is my go to app until the developers of scanner pro make it as good as that app and scanner pro has been around for years so it’s sad that i had to switch and which is why i gave it two stars is only because it’s very easy to save to files and etc...
Great App & Great Support
by VicSmith on 2018/06/23 19:31
I use this app primarily for scanning music and sharing it to my forScore app. I have to first share to Adobe Pro, then from there to forScore. Would be better if I could share directly to forScore. Still this is the best scanning app for the purpose I have found. Follow up: The developer responded directly to me with instructions on how to accomplish a direct share to forScore. “please open Scanner Pro - select the file needed > Share > Open In > select forScore”. This does exactly what I need. Great app and Great support.
