Scan any size document!

From the first day I scanned an oversized landscape design and emailed it to my professor, I have used and loved this app! Did you spend three hours compiling all of the medical and other paperwork for your little darling to go to overnight camp, (with an organization that still insists you print out everything and hand fill out forms!), then dutifully emailed it according to all of the directions, drive five hours to drop her off, only to find out that “something” went wrong on their end, and they don’t have any of your paperwork? No worries! You’re the smart mom who expects someone else to drop the ball; you always scan all important documents, email them and retain them in the app. So, with three clicks, you have resent them to the camp counselor, and your child is already running toward the first activity. *smug high five with your stunned spouse*
Good app

The one utility app I could LEAST do without. It is 99% perfect for its purpose—to create and store important documents, records, and files, and make them easily transportable in any format.
Love TurboScan and use it all the time!

This app has been extremely instrumental in my success and efficiency!
One improvement needed. Another suggested.
by mulleranjos on 2019/05/14 11:11
Well, I like the app a lot. Use it every day. Definitely recommend it. Best in AppStore, and I’ve tested many. The improvement I’m missing is quite simple: 1) after you frame the document, you should be prompted DIRECTLY to name it. Could be by default or by have that feature in the menu. For example. I finish framing, I go to next screen to export it. The document has the document+date as it’s name. But I have to click to edit, then edit the name, then back to export. Skip that and after the framing ask the user to name the document. You can still maintain the default name, but it needs to be “selected” in a way that when the user types, the text disappears. If he wants to keep default, he/she’ll only need to click on “done”. I hate have to click to edit the name every time and then get back. Not intuitive. This would make things lot easier. Again, not all people may agree with this feature, so having a toggle to activate it would be cool.
Valuable Tool

This app is super convenient and easy to use. It is way faster than manually scanning pages on on all in one printer.
Worth it for Pro.

It is quick and with good resolution. I like the way You can make the borders of the document. You can then converted to JPEG if you need to just have a picture of something not a PDF and I will add it to your photos. I use this app almost daily.

by DPDELL on 2019/04/30 23:08
I have to say I have relied on this app for some years now. The connectivity to email, messaging, and most importantly to the cloud makes it virtually effortless; and the choices between color, black and white, or image options make it a superb choice for scanning. A first great rate app.
App is great! Email feature not up to par

Great in so many ways
by TessP1 on 2019/04/18 19:26
This app is so easy to use and versatile. The most obvious use is as a scanner when you want to scan something and then send it to someone. I also use it for a handy way to have access to documents like my drivers license or my professional license. Right now I’m using it as I read a diet plan and want to have key parts of the diet in an easy to use format. I’ve been using the app for a number of years now and have never been disappointed.

This app is great and is extremely handy for small documents. It can store photos taken by the app or photos in your picture folder on your phone. Since you have to take a photo of each individual page, it isn’t always that great for larger documents like mortgages or other lengthy contracts. It has no problem storing the information, it’s just time consuming to take all the pictures.
Important tool you always have on you.
by DrJ@3245 on 2019/04/14 19:47
I can copy things that you can’t copy on a copy machine. It’s always with me, like when you’re at a great aunt’s house and want to take pictures of your family picture with your father as a child or your grandfather when he was in his 20’s.

by Kroger Manager on 2019/04/01 12:14
High quality image. Very user friendly and non complex. Been using almost daily in work and home life for about 6 months now. Tried other good scanners , but this is the best I've found yet. I promote it to all my friends and associates like I'm getting a commission. Years later and still using this scanner like crazy. Often I race my co-workers to show them how I can usually scan 1 -3 pages and send it with a short email faster than they can with the office scanner. They usually load the app in their phone promptly there after. I can also scan & email from my job site, hotel room, or vehicle, (parked of course). I have many apps I really like and use, but Turbo Scan has by far been my favorite as it has made scanning documents so convenient. The quality is so good that you can't tell my PDF came from an IPhone rather than a $10,000 copier. It can also be used on the receivers end just like any other PDF. I also keep many commonly used documents stored in the app so I can access them remotely, scan it to a requester and promptly get back to my project at hand. This app is also regularly kept up to date which I can't always say about some other apps. Still telling all my friends and co-workers about it like I'm an investor or something. Now it’s early 2019 and I left management for maintenance supervisor 6 years ago. Still use this app at least a couple times a week when I’m not in the office. Never has anyone questioned the quality of my PDF. It’s fast simple and high quality. Can also send PDF from website to TURBO and then forward just that page to someone instead of a link. Still loving it and telling friends about it.
Great scanner
by lunchboxsailor on 2019/03/31 17:11
All around great scanner, one HUGE COMPLAINT though to the developers, when sending a scan via email, the app gives you a “sent!” notification every time, even when it didn’t actually send!!! This has screwed me a couple times when I had time sensitive documents that I thought had been delivered, only to find they were sitting in my outbox unsent.

Suggestion
by knb on 2019/02/05 14:45
I love Turbo scan, I’ve been using it for years now. I am also using the turbo fax app. There are several other scanning apps out there, but I still like this one the best because it gives the option to save as a photo image so it gives me the most flexibility when saving things and using them in other apps (like apps that let you change PDFs). But I have a few suggestions. 1. Is there an option for auto scan? I’ve noticed that adobe scan has that option and it is extremely handy, especially for people with hand disabilities. I recently had joint replacement on both of my thumbs and I have the iPhone plus, which is challenging to hold even with two good thumbs, but impossible with no useful thumbs. So, it’s extremely challenging to hold the phone and hit the button to take the picture/scan. But in Adobe it does it automatically. So I’ve had to scan in Adobe and then save to TurboScan. 2. This is my major request. I have upwards of 175 documents that I’ve scanned in. Organization is my issue. I do save them to “my files” in iCloud. Or sometimes in Dropbox. Because I can make folders and albums etc. But I want to keep them in TurboScan as well. I need to be able to group my docs by subject. (My son’s stuff from school. My stuff for work. Etc) So, please consider adding albums and folders like is available with the iPhone files app or Dropbox etc. Thank you for listening. Best, Kristin
This scanner is best
by Lexkyusa on 2017/06/06 22:47
I have used Turbo Scan now for several years - it is great. I use it to scan large blue prints 22" x 34" and can then email it or print on smaller paper. This app lets you "frame" or crop in order to pick segments of a document/picture. Other scanners are not user friendly for scanning large prints or even a "white board" and then print on letter size paper. Don't waste time and money on other apps ( I have tried several others and they can't compare to this one). A previous update removed the ability to scan a "white board" from a distance with clarity. Current scanned image is very small and framing is difficult and then making the image larger is not clear. Previously I could zoom in on distant white board, then frame - image was very good. Would like to see this as an option. Currently I am using an iPhone 6+. I still rate this app as a 5 star. Update review 6/6/17 I asked for the return of the "zoom in" feature and the technical department responded. It helps with whiteboard scans or large sized drawings that would be difficult or impossible to get a good scan. If rating scale went higher than 5 it would see a 10 from me. The other updates that were made has truly made this the best scanner on the market. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. Thanks Turboscan for making the best scanner app even better.
Great App! Developers are amazing!
by Lesha.mos on 2018/04/20 15:53
I love this App and use it almost everyday. But it has become slower since the latest updates to iOS. It will work fine for the first few scans, but then the camera will begin to lag, or processing time becomes 3, 4, 5, times longer. When selecting multiple docs for a batch upload, the selections are laggy and scrolling is slow. I’ve tried restarting my phone, which helps again for the first couple scans but then begins to show the same problems. To the developers, PLEASE optimize it for the latest iOS and my 6S Plus. I would very much appreciate it! :) Thank you for releasing and update so quickly! I will be heavily using this app in a few days and would be very happy to have it operate quickly as it has been in the past. Thank you again for listening to your customers! 😀
Best app idea ever!
by RedSevina on 2017/07/16 19:30
I have been using this app since its start and it has always been my go to application for keeping track of whiteboards, napkin doodles, business cards, papers, documentation. Anything you have on paper that you want digital this is the perfect app for all your needs. It cleans up all shadows, old discolored "white"-boards and gives it a beautiful copy in digital form. It also can be used for grabbing recipes, articles you want to keep from magazines, or even the mound of scrap papers shoved in wallets and I would guess purses. Love it and it has been a consistent and solid performing app. FYI there is *NO* OCR or Business Card to address book integration. That is not its purpose. If you need these features I would look to Microsoft OneNote as it scrapes images for text. The mobile version of OneNote, the last time I used it, was horrible.
Excellent App

I’ve been using this app for over 5 years. As a college student it helped me make up missed notes, copy ppt slides, and saved me the cost of a few of those ‘buy my $300 book for this class and we’ll use it twice before you resell it for $10’ deals. In the workplace, this app was even more valuable. Especially when I was working in the field, I could quickly create a clean-looking pdf scan, email it to billing, and by doing so back it up in the cloud. A minute while parked at the job site on this app and I’d leave a job site with my part of the deal done and backed up. NO MORE LOST INVOICES!! Definitely a five star app. It is among my most valued apps, if under-appreciated. It’s one of the only apps I have that I’m a bit sad that it took me (probably over) five years to write this rave review.
Really the best

I've used Turbo Scan for years now, and am extremely satisfied. I have taken a few things for granted now that I've seen how other scanning apps work (trying to help vendors figure out their apps that don't do all that Turbo Scan does). Turbo Scan's frame adjustment is very user friendly and precise because of the zoom feature. I love the "copy to" feature for either a document or a page, so I don't have to do another scan or select from the camera roll again. Also love the email feature that you can configure to include a cc email address. Developer responded to my email within hours when I checked if there was a Folders feature ("no folder feature yet"), so I'm hoping. Somehow lucked out in getting Turbo Scan from the get go and appreciate how robust it is.
Look no further

I haven't tried any other scan apps because I haven't needed to. This one is excellent. I work on the road for a small charter airline and need to get documents to HQ taking pictures in less than ideal lighting conditions. Turbo Scan does a marvelous job w B&W or color. Easy interface. Never had crashing probs. Sometimes tells me I'm low on memory, but I ignore and have never had a problem. Highly recommend. Dec 2015 update. Still awesome. They just updated so the 3X taking scan (photo) is just one click now. Good job folks. Dec 2017 update. Sorry for the broken record, but still loving and using this app a lot. April 2018 update. Not just because I want these programmers to succeed, but also because I use the app all the time. It’s great. You won’t be disappointed.
Very handy for teachers
by astromezzo on 2017/08/07 14:23
I use this to upload documents to Dropbox or Google Drive for my students to download: handwritten notes from a student, chalkboard images, graded assignments, etc. It is fast and accurate and easy to use with enough options to be useful but not overwhelming. Since I got it for classroom use I've started finding more and more uses for it at work and at home. So much more useful than just taking a camera image, and so much more convenient than a scanner/printer, and it's the only thing that can easily grab my chalkboards and turn them into documents. Thanks for this app, I have been recommending it to my students and to friends and family. Edit: continues to be updated with new features and usability improvements. Highly recommended.
Really appreciate this app! Thank you
by 1st jorjii on 2017/08/15 16:55
I have come to rely on this app for tons of personal & work obligations. I never need a fax machine any more. Fabulous😘 The very first day I got this I was in Staples store in Alexandria Va making copies, and a young foreign exchange college student was trying to fax about 25 pages of important documents to her college... It would have cost her over $25... She allowed me to assist😊 I used Turbo scan and emailed all her documents safely free of charge. I have used it even to fax important signature pages on contracts!! This app has never failed!!! Thank you very much! I really appreciate your app!! I also use it to document just about everything! I just finished copying all our flight itineraries, hotel info etc for or up coming trip!! All in one document AWESOME SAUCE!!! Thank you😊
Excellent app.
by bbates1990 on 2019/01/30 09:16
I am pleased with TurboScan. I have scanned numerous parts manuals that are actually very thick. I keep all of my receipts handy with this app. I also use it to scan documents that had to be filled out and signed and then emailed to whom ever. I have only had an issue one time in the passed, and that was while I was in the middle of scanning in a rather large manual I was just ejected off of the app for what ever unknown reason and all my progress was just gone leaving me to start over. This happened maybe 3 times then I gave up. I will say that I have no had this issue since. Perhaps it was a bug that popped up after a lengthy Time using the app that has now been resolved. I also use TurboFax as well and couldn’t be happier with both applications!
Turbo Scan
by Ya Boy J$ on 2018/05/30 19:20
This is the best scan app I have tried. It scans in black and white and color. It has improved from the last time I accessed it. The quality fax is a amazing. I have tried another app but I was not impressed. Find myself always using this. Don't get turned off if you take a picture of the document to be scanned and phone shadow is reflected on it. The end result will be flawless, if it is a black and white. Not sure what will happen if it is in color. I give it five stars because it is worth to have. You scan and email right from the app. How awesome is that. They also offer a fax app that has a cover sheet. You have to pay to fax. I have not used it but I have it on my phone if the need arise. Please try...highly recommended.
Excellent App
by Jimmie Hodge on 2017/07/05 14:51
I am a real estate agent here in Tennessee and purchased this app 5 years ago for $1.99 and it has worked flawlessly ever since the purchase! Sometimes I'm in a customers home our out In the field and don't have access to a printer so I scan and email the docs straight from my phone as to comply with State Law in regards to providing my client with copies of what they signed immediately! The company keeps the app up to date and that's important with the ever changing technology market. This is an app that I have found myself relying on more and more everyday because I know it's always there and reliable and up to date! Gives you the option of sending your documents via text email or what ever else you may want! Excellent app!
I love it so much I've gifted it twice!
by billb1234 on 2017/10/15 17:45
This is one of the few apps I consider to be "indispensable". I love it so much I have actually "gifted" it on two different occasions to two different people who insisted that they could simply take photos of documents and mail me those photos, but after we struggled with the bad quality of their photos and trying to adjust those photos, I just gave up fighting and sent them a copy of the app myself. Now they've each fallen in love with this app as well and have also become very vocal supporters. To all you people not using this app and still using regular photos instead, stop wasting your time and everyone else's time – skip a single latte and buy this app and trust me, you will be much happier!
5 years later still my favorite app
by WD3600 on 2018/08/19 10:24
TurboScan is my essential Go-To app. I scan docs, receipts, pics, passports, meeting notes, shopping lists, then I email them to myself for easy search the titles have the year and subject. Or email them to someone else for their reference. Also when somebody sends me a document to sign I simply print the pdf file, sign the document file and scan the signed document back into a pdf to be emailed back to the sender. Scanner in my pocket. I can then dispose of the paper document because I can always find what I am looking for through Search. All this on my phone with a few seconds of app time. Love it. Resolutions are great. The new 3x capability is nice to have but 1x is so good I don’t find 3x necessary.
Fantastic product!! Un beatable price!
by GloriaD on 2018/12/19 17:33
Highly recommended. Easy to use. Updates periodically which means u won’t waste your money with an app whose developer decides not to update when there is a iOS update and render the app useless. This app is reliable and priceless!!!! Perform as advertised, well even better! As I'm doing taxes I can not believe how reliable, fast, easy to use, and high storage capacity this app is!! An absolute must have for anyone !! From scanning a love note from your child to a expense report check - or an article while browsing a magazine - anything. Very useful and affordable !! Can't say enough good things about this! As this makes my life so simple but yet so rich as I keep memories that otherwise will be simple gone!!
Outstanding APP
by Rico Suavie on 2018/02/28 12:15
If you don’t have it you should unequivocally have this on your phone. I don’t remember how much it was but it is so useful and handy in those few times you need that it is indispensable. I’ve had it about six months and used it about 12 times and it sure beats running to Staples or some other place you can’t find forget about the fact that it’s free and immediate once you pay for the app. So easy to use. I just scanned a plot plan and sent it to my engineer. The plan was rolled upWrinkled mess and I did the three times scan and it came out as good as anyone could imagine – and imagine that! It came from my iPhone and was sent to him immediately. Download it now you won’t be disappointed.
Can’t organize scans into folders. Can’t use OneDrive.
by sspatravers on 2018/01/25 23:03
Really thought this app would be impressive given all the strong ratings. However, I was surprised to learn that there is absolutely no way to organize scanned items. It looks like everything just gets dumped into one big folder. Strange that a document scanning tool offers nothing in the way of document management. I want to keep business receipts, personal receipts, legal documents and other information all in one place but without a way to add some kind of taxonomy, this would quickly become a painful proposition. Also, I would like to be able to upload scanned items to OneDrive. Why only iCloud backup? Seems like a bit of a constraint. Not everyone likes to keep their data in iCloud. Hoping I can get a refund because I wouldn’t even use this app if it were free. Too many other, better, more flexible, better designed scanning applications out there.
Best Scanner
by Crazy Excalibur on 2017/07/27 10:50
This App is amazing. It Keeps getting better, they add value often. I've had this App for a few years, and haven't used an actual Desktop Scanner since getting this. You can merge multiple pages into one pdf or jpeg and email right from within the App. It saves all previous scans too, in case you want to go back and find old scans. Highly recommended. With iOS 11 and a built in scanner app that lets you use Apple Pencil immediately after scanning to sign documents and email back, they need to add this functionality fast. I love this app but ease of use is always the better option, and i will use this app less and less and start knocking off stars.
Exceeded my expectations!!!!
by Jbuebrukwhqkrxksoairi on 2018/08/02 02:15
I use this app mostly at work. I make PDFs of parent notes, tests, letters I receive from parents, notes from lessons for students who are absent--basically, anything and everything I want to keep a record of. I also use at home to make PDFs of anything that requires me to sign and return--forms, letters, applications, etc. I also scan any worksheets that I come across in my children's homework, which I think are useful for my students and email them as PDFs to my myself and colleagues to print and use. The quality of the documents I scan is excellent and it's so easy to email them as PDFs. I am impressed and I always recommend it to anyone needing a scanner. 5 stars and then some!!!
Fast, Simple, Easy to Use... Best App For Scanning !
by Scooter Joel on 2018/01/08 05:38
While traveling for business I need to quickly scan and log my daily expense receipts the moment I get them. Whether it be a physical paper receipt or an emailed copy. Three reasons why Turbo Scan is Golden to me: 1. I can quickly pull my phone out at the point of sale and scan new receipts the moment they are printed. (That way I don't have to be constantly searching for tiny little slips of paper that are so easy to loose) 2. I can also import expense receipts that I receive via email (like car rental and hotel receipts, not always present when those are totaled) 3. Then most importantly when emailing my monthly report I just tap 'add attachment' , select Turbo Scan, scroll down to the appropriate scan log and attach it to my report. All from my phone. No more paper. No more desktop printer / scanner combo. It's important the scanning app works well within your phones OS so that you can easily import / export content to / from other apps and email, etc... and Turbo Scan does this well. That's why I give it FIVE stars ! It's made my life a whole lot easier ;-)
Great, easy to use software
by k9gardner on 2018/12/19 22:32
I use this app every day to scan documents, checks, receipts etc. It works quite well, basically just like having a scanner in your phone. One thing I would like to see: a document type/size setting for checks! When I shoot them now, whether the camera is held landscape or portrait, if I’m saving it as a letter size document it always rotates the page layout to match the check (longest dimension to longest dimension). But that’s not what I want. I want the check to be displayed roughly to size, oriented so it’s upright, on a portrait letter page (long dimension to short dimension), when I’m shooting it that way. It doesn’t want to leave it alone. :)
Turbo scan.
by Linda G 729 on 2018/08/24 22:15
This is the first app I bought, several years ago and a couple of phones ago. I use it all the time, for real estate documents to send quickly to title or another agent or for recipes and articles found in magazines in doctors’ offices. The program was shown to me by seat mate on an airplane when I just got my I-phone 4, and as a contractor he used it a lot. It has saved me hours and miles in my business and life in general. I’ve recommended TurboScan to hundreds of people. I use it several times a week, as I am often out of the office, lacking such machines found there. My friends and clients are amazed at the quality of the scans, too. Linda G 719
Great tool
by Work smarter...not harder on 2018/07/16 21:54
I use this scanner app to scan hand written reports in the field for work. I can then search for any past report in the field. I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago. I forget how much I paid for it but it is worth ten times as much. I have been telling everyone about it. It is logical and well thought out. Push one button and the scan will automatically be emailed to you. You can also start files with a collection of scans. I use a file to keep track of my monthly expenses or traveling expenses...no more paper receipts folded in my wallet! You will not be disappointed. It has some high def features that I don't use.
Fantastic app!
by Little Walter is dead :( on 2018/07/07 21:01
Long gone are the days where we had to have a dedicated scanner with crappy software to hook up to a computer in order to scan household documents when requested from outside agencies or for archival which was followed inconsistently anyway because it was too much trouble to set up. So easy to use TurboScan in the fly with great results even for 11” X 17” documents, Can email as PDFs immediately, totally flexible for rapid response items to get things done with no nagging back of your mind “when I get around to it” procrastination. Retain cars proof of insurance docs, download from insurer and email to others on your policy. Too many uses to mention.
Beats a scanner any day!
by coldcash57 on 2018/02/02 13:37
When I upgraded my Imac to a new one, you would think that software would exist that would upgrade my scanner as well, right? Wrong! HP did have an upgrade, but it ran so slowly that the scanner was basically rendered useless. Then I discovered Turboscan. For a mere 5 bucks I can carry a high-resolution scanner with me anywhere! I tend lose hard copy, so I use it for everything important: important letters I receive, last months bill, paycheck stubs. Give them a name, and throw them into a folder on my Mac, easy to find by name, or even scanning visually. Would give it a higher rating but 5 stars is as high as it goes! Thank you, Turboscan!
LOVE this app!!
by Moges85 on 2018/05/08 14:42
I’ve been using TurboScan for several years now and absolutely love it! It is SO convenient to be able to scan items by taking a picture of them on my phone, instead of having to be at home, with an actual scanner, get on my computer, etc. I can scan a document anytime, anywhere with just a few clicks and immediately email or text them to whoever I need to. I’ve never had any problems with it and no complaints ever about an image not being clear enough, etc. Looks like it was scanned on an actual scanner every time. SO easy to use. Again, love this app and highly recommend it!
Best of the best. Been using for several years.
by PaulGK on 2018/02/03 00:17
I normally don’t write reviews, but I can honestly tell you that Turbo Scan is my go to app for tracking expenses and scanning receipts back to my corporate office for items purchased and saving items for tax time. I love the ability to be able to change from photo quality to black-and-white to color-unbelievable scanning app been using since the first iteration of the iPhone. I don’t own any of the company I am not being paid anything from the company, (however I’d take a little bit of money if you want to give me some!) Just kidding. Nice job guys, keep up the good work with the app.
I can't live without this app anymore
by Cinnamon Panda on 2017/10/26 16:22
As the title states, this app has become an essential part of my job! I don't always have access to a scanner and this does the job nicely. Plus with some newer features like the password lock, I feel safer with my secure documents being on my phone without having to clear out my history due to HIPAA concerns. My only gripe is minor, namely that certain areas don't scan so well (large black spots for example) in the BW mode, it leaves a spotty white area inside the black. In all though would highly recommend this app to others especially if you deal with a lot of paperwork on a daily basis.
What a great scanner !!
by 72 year old codger on 2018/08/20 19:09
This is surely one of my most beloved apps. I am a professor and write out lecture notes for my classes at Carnegie Mellon University, then copy them with this app and distribute the copies to my class. This app is great. I've been using it for the above purpose for many years. The only (slight) improvement I would request would be an option to have the initial framing be a tiny bit larger, so it would include my notes at the very margins. Sometimes those get cut off and I have to manually enlarge the frame. No biggie, but it would be nice to have the option to request larger framing from the get go. In any case, this is an absolutely awesome app.
Scans great, backup is terrible
by thadangazone on 2018/08/15 12:00
The scan quality is great. It’s easy and convenient. I would have expected that recovering accidentally lost items was easier (or in my case possible). Even a simple “undo” button or a “trash” folder that periodically empties itself that you can recover unintentionally deleted items would make it worth the $6 you spend on the app. They would defend themselves and say that they rely on iCloud, which is somewhat valid in the case of a full backup or historic recovery. They could fix this ONE thing and I would change my rating to 5 stars. As it is I lost a massively important document that I cannot recover (and don’t have a hard copy of any longer) because the Derek’s function is the most unforgiving thing I’ve ever seen in an app that deals with documents
I must be wrong
by Neillm2001 on 2018/04/07 19:02
Tried S/W on a multicolored page. Some background colors were darker than others and had a straight edge. The resulting scan only retrieved the areas containing text on a white surface and ignored the white text on a black surface. Also a horizontal series of color photos along the bottom edge were ignored. The scans were made in color mode. The attempts were made using a magazine that was on hand as a trial. Attempts to use multi-shots did not result in better readable results of the text. This was probably due to the movement of camera that souls occur if someone was hand holding the camera. Product is probably good for black on white . Just wonder about other situations. Fury the free version if it is available. Once you open an app it yours. Apple doesn't seem to believe in trial periods.
Iconoclast App
by Wanna49 on 2017/09/21 01:17
TurboScan belongs to an elite group of apps that are truly "Jobessian"(relentless in the pursuit of beauty through simplicity and efficiency.) TurboScan will do to traditional scanners what the iPod did for walkmans a few years ago: they will be completely replaced! The only disadvantage to a traditional scanners is the inability to scan multi-page docs. I solve this problem by arranging up to eight (8) pages together per scan and the quality of the picture still quite good. Plus with TurboScan gone is the "inbox" or paper tray: paper goes from scan to cloud and hard paper discarded ipso facto (while practicing a strong backup system.) Love you TurboScan!
A huge time saver!
by Cindula on 2018/08/28 14:58
I use this app primarily when I want to practice a piece of music from the archives of my church. When the music book is old, worn, and especially out of print, I prefer to make a copy which I can mark up and spread out rather than having to turn pages. This app allows me to copy the music without damaging the book and saves me time from having to adjust the music in a photocopy machine. Also, I love the fact that I can then save the copy in a pdf file and can email it to myself as well as to our church soloist. I also use this app to copy a random note and save it in a folder.
Best app! I've been using it for 5 years and nothing can compare!
by Venus Mercury on 2017/08/31 13:20
I use this app for everything. Making copies of deposits when I go to the bank, copies of legal documents to email out, copies of my son's homework so he doesn't have to do it again if he loses it. Just email it to the teacher and call it a day. Amazing app that has outstanding quality. One time I got a scanned copy of a legal document from the district attorney's office. You could barely read it. Luckily I had a turbo scan of the original. Everyone was asking for my copy of it because it was better. Simply terrific app!
Life changing!
by 5k finished today! on 2018/12/04 14:51
Fantastic easy way to send a high-quality image where I need it to go (emails, Google Classroom, etc.). Cropping takes only a second and the image quality is far better than our copy center scanners. My college student says it is indispensable because for her many projects absolutely everything needs to be uploaded to turn in to her professors and she can’t imagine not having this. It’s also great because we can go back and retrieve scans as well. I couldn’t be nearly as productive without this tool. Best few dollars I’ve ever invested to save time and aggravation!
OK scanner
by MKB58 on 2018/01/23 22:47
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 to the cloud 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.
Does iOS 11 render this obsolete?
by Wilcoghost on 2017/10/04 19:47
Tucked away in the native Notes app of iOS 11 is a document scanner. As a longtime TurboScan user and promoter, I was interested in doing a comparison of the two. Same document, same lighting conditions, same phone. The TurboScan produced pdf was infinitely superior to the Notes app produced version. It’s not even close. The quality of the TurboScan version is excellent. The iOS produced version was fair, if I’m being kind. Does the native app render TurboScan obsolete? Not in the least. Are you serious about scanning great quality PDFs and images with your phone? If yes, then you need TurboScan.
Best App that I have downloaded
by Sugar Shelly 882 on 2017/12/01 05:50
TurboScan gets the highest possible rating I can give. I use this app to send contracts and agreements to clients to review and sign, create digital photos from old photos, create receipts at work, create visual aides for my kids school projects. The app is so easy to use and prompts you to edit, choose file type and save to other locations. I don’t usually contribute reviews but I highly recommend this app to anyone that needs a seamless tool to make life so much easier. ** I have had this app since it was free to download. This is one app that is worth paying for.
Outstanding
by Intrepid49 on 2019/02/25 19:51
I frequently need to grab a copy of a jazz chart for practice after a rehearsal. Since I can't take a part with me, I use my iPhone camera to snap a photo for printing later on. Problem is that I usually end up with a dark color shot that is hard to read. I have used TurboScan for a while now, and my only gripe is that if I need to scan multiple pages, while holding my trombone, it gets a bit tricky. It’s hard to hold my horn, and tap scan, then tap “done” on the top right, then “next”, the “+”, then scan another page. Can these all be in the same area on the screen, or toggled, like a soft-key?
Must have! Should be an Award winner!
by cleta on 2019/02/09 16:39
Now that cell phones have decent cameras, this app is a must have for documents and record keeping. Never lose a receipt or important document again. Store it within TurboScan and/or your photos & store in the cloud. I was at a hotel recently and a very upset fellow guest needed to send a pdf file to a lawyer and the hotel didn’t have a fax machine. I recommended TurboScan, he downloaded the app, took a picture of his document and emailed it in less than 5min. Boy, was he happy! I save all my documents this way. And I recommend you do too!
I love TurboScan!
by Andy Spamen on 2018/09/02 19:40
I have been telling everyone that this is the most important tool I use in my day to day assignments ! I’m an emergency response Child abuse investigator ! Often time in the process of documentation I’m presented with documents that are valuable to my disposition and valuable as evidence! I would have to sit there and hand write court orders which were incredibly long but now Turbo scan saves me time and that’s why I love it it’s like having a copy machine in my phone and I get to print my documents and clearly submitt them to court! I just love you product! Thank you J Ocampo M.A.
The best scanner out there
by Me track time on 2018/05/12 20:28
I’ve had this app for a couple years and it’s awesome, to the point I rarely use the scanner in my office any more. I’ve scanned everything from receipts to large format engineering drawings, and the result is every bit as good as any stationary scanner. The only two drawbacks are 1. The lack of a custom page size option (they finally added 11x17 which was a huge help) and 2. It’s confusing to save a file in Dropbox. It has a good iCloud Drive integration, I wish the same single button was an option for Dropbox.
Love this app...
by teeitup22 on 2017/06/14 11:52
I have used this app for several years and can't live without it. I scan docs and receipts on the spot, 1-click upload them in .pdf to Box, and everything is accessible wherever I need it. The app auto-crops your document to cut out the background and lets you choose lightness/darkness levels so you get crisp copies in almost any light conditions. Easy to scan multi-page docs and can 1-click share to email, text, other apps. I've tried out a few scanning apps and this is best I've found.
Scanning since 2014!!!! - just get it!
by Danthatswho on 2019/03/21 16:49
I started this review because I scrolled back in all of my standard documents looking for something and realize that I’ve been using the products since June 2014. It is by far the best way I have ever seen for quickly photographing scanning and sending documents any number of ways. A great app does exactly what it supposed to do when it says it’s going to do it. Turboscan does that and more. It corrects camera shake, straightens documents, allows for manual override, and many other things. Just get it!
BEST SCANNER
by Tactical Reader on 2018/09/09 18:56
I have been using this app for years. The first two years I had it, I was still in the US Army. I was able to scan and retain important documents and always have them with me on my phone. This was the biggest lifesaver in the Army. Documents mean a lot no matter what you do in the Military! Now, I can carry my retirement documents with me and continue to scan and save documents from the doctors appointments I have. Fantastic! I have used others but lots of times there are up charges for certain abilities. I am SOOOOOO THANKFUL FOR THIS APP!! Way to go guys!!!
Great App
by SoonerSongwriter on 2017/06/14 13:05
I use this app mostly to document field log sheets. At the end of a day in the field, I open up this app on my phone and take pics of multiple pages of hand notes. Then I simply email them to myself. This app sends them to me as a .pdf file instead of a .jpg. This is wonderful because the .pdf files are about 1/20th the size of a .jpg. This way it emails very quickly. It is easy to group many pics together and send them all at once. This app also works will with dropbox which I use a lot.
I’ve used Turbo Scan for years and I absolutely love it!
by Francisco Javier Scarano on 2018/11/30 22:07
This is an amazing tool for any smartphone user. I run a small business that often requires me to scan and email items and before that I used it in business school. It has worked brilliantly every time. I’ve gone from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone XS and this app is nothing short of magical as it stores all your old scans and even names them, usually correctly by reading the text. I could go on and on but trust me on this, this is one of the best tools ever invented.
Love the app but...
by lettheanchorsfall on 2018/07/23 15:39
I’ve been using this app for months now and I’m very happy with the updates that have come but the most recent ones have been getting on my nerve. I like to play music while I’m at work and I scan often with my job. I’ll be in the middle of a big document and the app will completely close out and as I click back in it will say that I need to restart my entire phone. When I do that it does nothing. The app will still continue closing out. I hope that this will be fixed. I’m not going to stop my music for this. (It’s the only thing I could think) the app worked before with the music playing. It’s a great app, just needs to be fixed up a little more.

Scan any size document!
by nici d h on 2019/05/18 15:29
From the first day I scanned an oversized landscape design and emailed it to my professor, I have used and loved this app! Did you spend three hours compiling all of the medical and other paperwork for your little darling to go to overnight camp, (with an organization that still insists you print out everything and hand fill out forms!), then dutifully emailed it according to all of the directions, drive five hours to drop her off, only to find out that “something” went wrong on their end, and they don’t have any of your paperwork? No worries! You’re the smart mom who expects someone else to drop the ball; you always scan all important documents, email them and retain them in the app. So, with three clicks, you have resent them to the camp counselor, and your child is already running toward the first activity. *smug high five with your stunned spouse*

This app has been extremely instrumental in my success and efficiency!
One improvement needed. Another suggested.
by mulleranjos on 2019/05/14 11:11
Well, I like the app a lot. Use it every day. Definitely recommend it. Best in AppStore, and I’ve tested many. The improvement I’m missing is quite simple: 1) after you frame the document, you should be prompted DIRECTLY to name it. Could be by default or by have that feature in the menu. For example. I finish framing, I go to next screen to export it. The document has the document+date as it’s name. But I have to click to edit, then edit the name, then back to export. Skip that and after the framing ask the user to name the document. You can still maintain the default name, but it needs to be “selected” in a way that when the user types, the text disappears. If he wants to keep default, he/she’ll only need to click on “done”. I hate have to click to edit the name every time and then get back. Not intuitive. This would make things lot easier. Again, not all people may agree with this feature, so having a toggle to activate it would be cool.
Valuable Tool

This app is super convenient and easy to use. It is way faster than manually scanning pages on on all in one printer.
Worth it for Pro.

It is quick and with good resolution. I like the way You can make the borders of the document. You can then converted to JPEG if you need to just have a picture of something not a PDF and I will add it to your photos. I use this app almost daily.

I have to say I have relied on this app for some years now. The connectivity to email, messaging, and most importantly to the cloud makes it virtually effortless; and the choices between color, black and white, or image options make it a superb choice for scanning. A first great rate app.
App is great! Email feature not up to par

Great in so many ways
by TessP1 on 2019/04/18 19:26
This app is so easy to use and versatile. The most obvious use is as a scanner when you want to scan something and then send it to someone. I also use it for a handy way to have access to documents like my drivers license or my professional license. Right now I’m using it as I read a diet plan and want to have key parts of the diet in an easy to use format. I’ve been using the app for a number of years now and have never been disappointed.

This app is great and is extremely handy for small documents. It can store photos taken by the app or photos in your picture folder on your phone. Since you have to take a photo of each individual page, it isn’t always that great for larger documents like mortgages or other lengthy contracts. It has no problem storing the information, it’s just time consuming to take all the pictures.
Important tool you always have on you.
by DrJ@3245 on 2019/04/14 19:47
I can copy things that you can’t copy on a copy machine. It’s always with me, like when you’re at a great aunt’s house and want to take pictures of your family picture with your father as a child or your grandfather when he was in his 20’s.

Retail Manager
by Kroger Manager on 2019/04/01 12:14
High quality image. Very user friendly and non complex. Been using almost daily in work and home life for about 6 months now. Tried other good scanners , but this is the best I've found yet. I promote it to all my friends and associates like I'm getting a commission. Years later and still using this scanner like crazy. Often I race my co-workers to show them how I can usually scan 1 -3 pages and send it with a short email faster than they can with the office scanner. They usually load the app in their phone promptly there after. I can also scan & email from my job site, hotel room, or vehicle, (parked of course). I have many apps I really like and use, but Turbo Scan has by far been my favorite as it has made scanning documents so convenient. The quality is so good that you can't tell my PDF came from an IPhone rather than a $10,000 copier. It can also be used on the receivers end just like any other PDF. I also keep many commonly used documents stored in the app so I can access them remotely, scan it to a requester and promptly get back to my project at hand. This app is also regularly kept up to date which I can't always say about some other apps. Still telling all my friends and co-workers about it like I'm an investor or something. Now it’s early 2019 and I left management for maintenance supervisor 6 years ago. Still use this app at least a couple times a week when I’m not in the office. Never has anyone questioned the quality of my PDF. It’s fast simple and high quality. Can also send PDF from website to TURBO and then forward just that page to someone instead of a link. Still loving it and telling friends about it.
Great scanner
by lunchboxsailor on 2019/03/31 17:11
All around great scanner, one HUGE COMPLAINT though to the developers, when sending a scan via email, the app gives you a “sent!” notification every time, even when it didn’t actually send!!! This has screwed me a couple times when I had time sensitive documents that I thought had been delivered, only to find they were sitting in my outbox unsent.

Suggestion
by knb on 2019/02/05 14:45
I love Turbo scan, I’ve been using it for years now. I am also using the turbo fax app. There are several other scanning apps out there, but I still like this one the best because it gives the option to save as a photo image so it gives me the most flexibility when saving things and using them in other apps (like apps that let you change PDFs). But I have a few suggestions. 1. Is there an option for auto scan? I’ve noticed that adobe scan has that option and it is extremely handy, especially for people with hand disabilities. I recently had joint replacement on both of my thumbs and I have the iPhone plus, which is challenging to hold even with two good thumbs, but impossible with no useful thumbs. So, it’s extremely challenging to hold the phone and hit the button to take the picture/scan. But in Adobe it does it automatically. So I’ve had to scan in Adobe and then save to TurboScan. 2. This is my major request. I have upwards of 175 documents that I’ve scanned in. Organization is my issue. I do save them to “my files” in iCloud. Or sometimes in Dropbox. Because I can make folders and albums etc. But I want to keep them in TurboScan as well. I need to be able to group my docs by subject. (My son’s stuff from school. My stuff for work. Etc) So, please consider adding albums and folders like is available with the iPhone files app or Dropbox etc. Thank you for listening. Best, Kristin
This scanner is best

I have used Turbo Scan now for several years - it is great. I use it to scan large blue prints 22" x 34" and can then email it or print on smaller paper. This app lets you "frame" or crop in order to pick segments of a document/picture. Other scanners are not user friendly for scanning large prints or even a "white board" and then print on letter size paper. Don't waste time and money on other apps ( I have tried several others and they can't compare to this one). A previous update removed the ability to scan a "white board" from a distance with clarity. Current scanned image is very small and framing is difficult and then making the image larger is not clear. Previously I could zoom in on distant white board, then frame - image was very good. Would like to see this as an option. Currently I am using an iPhone 6+. I still rate this app as a 5 star. Update review 6/6/17 I asked for the return of the "zoom in" feature and the technical department responded. It helps with whiteboard scans or large sized drawings that would be difficult or impossible to get a good scan. If rating scale went higher than 5 it would see a 10 from me. The other updates that were made has truly made this the best scanner on the market. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. Thanks Turboscan for making the best scanner app even better.
Great App! Developers are amazing!

I love this App and use it almost everyday. But it has become slower since the latest updates to iOS. It will work fine for the first few scans, but then the camera will begin to lag, or processing time becomes 3, 4, 5, times longer. When selecting multiple docs for a batch upload, the selections are laggy and scrolling is slow. I’ve tried restarting my phone, which helps again for the first couple scans but then begins to show the same problems. To the developers, PLEASE optimize it for the latest iOS and my 6S Plus. I would very much appreciate it! :) Thank you for releasing and update so quickly! I will be heavily using this app in a few days and would be very happy to have it operate quickly as it has been in the past. Thank you again for listening to your customers! 😀
Best app idea ever!
by RedSevina on 2017/07/16 19:30
I have been using this app since its start and it has always been my go to application for keeping track of whiteboards, napkin doodles, business cards, papers, documentation. Anything you have on paper that you want digital this is the perfect app for all your needs. It cleans up all shadows, old discolored "white"-boards and gives it a beautiful copy in digital form. It also can be used for grabbing recipes, articles you want to keep from magazines, or even the mound of scrap papers shoved in wallets and I would guess purses. Love it and it has been a consistent and solid performing app. FYI there is *NO* OCR or Business Card to address book integration. That is not its purpose. If you need these features I would look to Microsoft OneNote as it scrapes images for text. The mobile version of OneNote, the last time I used it, was horrible.
Excellent App
by StarsReview on 2018/06/15 15:24
I’ve been using this app for over 5 years. As a college student it helped me make up missed notes, copy ppt slides, and saved me the cost of a few of those ‘buy my $300 book for this class and we’ll use it twice before you resell it for $10’ deals. In the workplace, this app was even more valuable. Especially when I was working in the field, I could quickly create a clean-looking pdf scan, email it to billing, and by doing so back it up in the cloud. A minute while parked at the job site on this app and I’d leave a job site with my part of the deal done and backed up. NO MORE LOST INVOICES!! Definitely a five star app. It is among my most valued apps, if under-appreciated. It’s one of the only apps I have that I’m a bit sad that it took me (probably over) five years to write this rave review.
Really the best
by Limahi on 2017/06/09 21:30
I've used Turbo Scan for years now, and am extremely satisfied. I have taken a few things for granted now that I've seen how other scanning apps work (trying to help vendors figure out their apps that don't do all that Turbo Scan does). Turbo Scan's frame adjustment is very user friendly and precise because of the zoom feature. I love the "copy to" feature for either a document or a page, so I don't have to do another scan or select from the camera roll again. Also love the email feature that you can configure to include a cc email address. Developer responded to my email within hours when I checked if there was a Folders feature ("no folder feature yet"), so I'm hoping. Somehow lucked out in getting Turbo Scan from the get go and appreciate how robust it is.
Look no further
by kranny1 on 2018/04/19 19:57
I haven't tried any other scan apps because I haven't needed to. This one is excellent. I work on the road for a small charter airline and need to get documents to HQ taking pictures in less than ideal lighting conditions. Turbo Scan does a marvelous job w B&W or color. Easy interface. Never had crashing probs. Sometimes tells me I'm low on memory, but I ignore and have never had a problem. Highly recommend. Dec 2015 update. Still awesome. They just updated so the 3X taking scan (photo) is just one click now. Good job folks. Dec 2017 update. Sorry for the broken record, but still loving and using this app a lot. April 2018 update. Not just because I want these programmers to succeed, but also because I use the app all the time. It’s great. You won’t be disappointed.
Very handy for teachers
by astromezzo on 2017/08/07 14:23
I use this to upload documents to Dropbox or Google Drive for my students to download: handwritten notes from a student, chalkboard images, graded assignments, etc. It is fast and accurate and easy to use with enough options to be useful but not overwhelming. Since I got it for classroom use I've started finding more and more uses for it at work and at home. So much more useful than just taking a camera image, and so much more convenient than a scanner/printer, and it's the only thing that can easily grab my chalkboards and turn them into documents. Thanks for this app, I have been recommending it to my students and to friends and family. Edit: continues to be updated with new features and usability improvements. Highly recommended.
Really appreciate this app! Thank you
by 1st jorjii on 2017/08/15 16:55
I have come to rely on this app for tons of personal & work obligations. I never need a fax machine any more. Fabulous😘 The very first day I got this I was in Staples store in Alexandria Va making copies, and a young foreign exchange college student was trying to fax about 25 pages of important documents to her college... It would have cost her over $25... She allowed me to assist😊 I used Turbo scan and emailed all her documents safely free of charge. I have used it even to fax important signature pages on contracts!! This app has never failed!!! Thank you very much! I really appreciate your app!! I also use it to document just about everything! I just finished copying all our flight itineraries, hotel info etc for or up coming trip!! All in one document AWESOME SAUCE!!! Thank you😊
Excellent app.
by bbates1990 on 2019/01/30 09:16
I am pleased with TurboScan. I have scanned numerous parts manuals that are actually very thick. I keep all of my receipts handy with this app. I also use it to scan documents that had to be filled out and signed and then emailed to whom ever. I have only had an issue one time in the passed, and that was while I was in the middle of scanning in a rather large manual I was just ejected off of the app for what ever unknown reason and all my progress was just gone leaving me to start over. This happened maybe 3 times then I gave up. I will say that I have no had this issue since. Perhaps it was a bug that popped up after a lengthy Time using the app that has now been resolved. I also use TurboFax as well and couldn’t be happier with both applications!
Turbo Scan
by Ya Boy J$ on 2018/05/30 19:20
This is the best scan app I have tried. It scans in black and white and color. It has improved from the last time I accessed it. The quality fax is a amazing. I have tried another app but I was not impressed. Find myself always using this. Don't get turned off if you take a picture of the document to be scanned and phone shadow is reflected on it. The end result will be flawless, if it is a black and white. Not sure what will happen if it is in color. I give it five stars because it is worth to have. You scan and email right from the app. How awesome is that. They also offer a fax app that has a cover sheet. You have to pay to fax. I have not used it but I have it on my phone if the need arise. Please try...highly recommended.
Excellent App
by Jimmie Hodge on 2017/07/05 14:51
I am a real estate agent here in Tennessee and purchased this app 5 years ago for $1.99 and it has worked flawlessly ever since the purchase! Sometimes I'm in a customers home our out In the field and don't have access to a printer so I scan and email the docs straight from my phone as to comply with State Law in regards to providing my client with copies of what they signed immediately! The company keeps the app up to date and that's important with the ever changing technology market. This is an app that I have found myself relying on more and more everyday because I know it's always there and reliable and up to date! Gives you the option of sending your documents via text email or what ever else you may want! Excellent app!
I love it so much I've gifted it twice!
by billb1234 on 2017/10/15 17:45
This is one of the few apps I consider to be "indispensable". I love it so much I have actually "gifted" it on two different occasions to two different people who insisted that they could simply take photos of documents and mail me those photos, but after we struggled with the bad quality of their photos and trying to adjust those photos, I just gave up fighting and sent them a copy of the app myself. Now they've each fallen in love with this app as well and have also become very vocal supporters. To all you people not using this app and still using regular photos instead, stop wasting your time and everyone else's time – skip a single latte and buy this app and trust me, you will be much happier!
5 years later still my favorite app
by WD3600 on 2018/08/19 10:24
TurboScan is my essential Go-To app. I scan docs, receipts, pics, passports, meeting notes, shopping lists, then I email them to myself for easy search the titles have the year and subject. Or email them to someone else for their reference. Also when somebody sends me a document to sign I simply print the pdf file, sign the document file and scan the signed document back into a pdf to be emailed back to the sender. Scanner in my pocket. I can then dispose of the paper document because I can always find what I am looking for through Search. All this on my phone with a few seconds of app time. Love it. Resolutions are great. The new 3x capability is nice to have but 1x is so good I don’t find 3x necessary.
Fantastic product!! Un beatable price!
by GloriaD on 2018/12/19 17:33
Highly recommended. Easy to use. Updates periodically which means u won’t waste your money with an app whose developer decides not to update when there is a iOS update and render the app useless. This app is reliable and priceless!!!! Perform as advertised, well even better! As I'm doing taxes I can not believe how reliable, fast, easy to use, and high storage capacity this app is!! An absolute must have for anyone !! From scanning a love note from your child to a expense report check - or an article while browsing a magazine - anything. Very useful and affordable !! Can't say enough good things about this! As this makes my life so simple but yet so rich as I keep memories that otherwise will be simple gone!!
Outstanding APP
by Rico Suavie on 2018/02/28 12:15
If you don’t have it you should unequivocally have this on your phone. I don’t remember how much it was but it is so useful and handy in those few times you need that it is indispensable. I’ve had it about six months and used it about 12 times and it sure beats running to Staples or some other place you can’t find forget about the fact that it’s free and immediate once you pay for the app. So easy to use. I just scanned a plot plan and sent it to my engineer. The plan was rolled upWrinkled mess and I did the three times scan and it came out as good as anyone could imagine – and imagine that! It came from my iPhone and was sent to him immediately. Download it now you won’t be disappointed.
Can’t organize scans into folders. Can’t use OneDrive.
by sspatravers on 2018/01/25 23:03
Really thought this app would be impressive given all the strong ratings. However, I was surprised to learn that there is absolutely no way to organize scanned items. It looks like everything just gets dumped into one big folder. Strange that a document scanning tool offers nothing in the way of document management. I want to keep business receipts, personal receipts, legal documents and other information all in one place but without a way to add some kind of taxonomy, this would quickly become a painful proposition. Also, I would like to be able to upload scanned items to OneDrive. Why only iCloud backup? Seems like a bit of a constraint. Not everyone likes to keep their data in iCloud. Hoping I can get a refund because I wouldn’t even use this app if it were free. Too many other, better, more flexible, better designed scanning applications out there.
Best Scanner
by Crazy Excalibur on 2017/07/27 10:50
This App is amazing. It Keeps getting better, they add value often. I've had this App for a few years, and haven't used an actual Desktop Scanner since getting this. You can merge multiple pages into one pdf or jpeg and email right from within the App. It saves all previous scans too, in case you want to go back and find old scans. Highly recommended. With iOS 11 and a built in scanner app that lets you use Apple Pencil immediately after scanning to sign documents and email back, they need to add this functionality fast. I love this app but ease of use is always the better option, and i will use this app less and less and start knocking off stars.
Exceeded my expectations!!!!
by Jbuebrukwhqkrxksoairi on 2018/08/02 02:15
I use this app mostly at work. I make PDFs of parent notes, tests, letters I receive from parents, notes from lessons for students who are absent--basically, anything and everything I want to keep a record of. I also use at home to make PDFs of anything that requires me to sign and return--forms, letters, applications, etc. I also scan any worksheets that I come across in my children's homework, which I think are useful for my students and email them as PDFs to my myself and colleagues to print and use. The quality of the documents I scan is excellent and it's so easy to email them as PDFs. I am impressed and I always recommend it to anyone needing a scanner. 5 stars and then some!!!
Fast, Simple, Easy to Use... Best App For Scanning !
by Scooter Joel on 2018/01/08 05:38
While traveling for business I need to quickly scan and log my daily expense receipts the moment I get them. Whether it be a physical paper receipt or an emailed copy. Three reasons why Turbo Scan is Golden to me: 1. I can quickly pull my phone out at the point of sale and scan new receipts the moment they are printed. (That way I don't have to be constantly searching for tiny little slips of paper that are so easy to loose) 2. I can also import expense receipts that I receive via email (like car rental and hotel receipts, not always present when those are totaled) 3. Then most importantly when emailing my monthly report I just tap 'add attachment' , select Turbo Scan, scroll down to the appropriate scan log and attach it to my report. All from my phone. No more paper. No more desktop printer / scanner combo. It's important the scanning app works well within your phones OS so that you can easily import / export content to / from other apps and email, etc... and Turbo Scan does this well. That's why I give it FIVE stars ! It's made my life a whole lot easier ;-)
Great, easy to use software
by k9gardner on 2018/12/19 22:32
I use this app every day to scan documents, checks, receipts etc. It works quite well, basically just like having a scanner in your phone. One thing I would like to see: a document type/size setting for checks! When I shoot them now, whether the camera is held landscape or portrait, if I’m saving it as a letter size document it always rotates the page layout to match the check (longest dimension to longest dimension). But that’s not what I want. I want the check to be displayed roughly to size, oriented so it’s upright, on a portrait letter page (long dimension to short dimension), when I’m shooting it that way. It doesn’t want to leave it alone. :)
Turbo scan.
by Linda G 729 on 2018/08/24 22:15
This is the first app I bought, several years ago and a couple of phones ago. I use it all the time, for real estate documents to send quickly to title or another agent or for recipes and articles found in magazines in doctors’ offices. The program was shown to me by seat mate on an airplane when I just got my I-phone 4, and as a contractor he used it a lot. It has saved me hours and miles in my business and life in general. I’ve recommended TurboScan to hundreds of people. I use it several times a week, as I am often out of the office, lacking such machines found there. My friends and clients are amazed at the quality of the scans, too. Linda G 719
Great tool
by Work smarter...not harder on 2018/07/16 21:54
I use this scanner app to scan hand written reports in the field for work. I can then search for any past report in the field. I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago. I forget how much I paid for it but it is worth ten times as much. I have been telling everyone about it. It is logical and well thought out. Push one button and the scan will automatically be emailed to you. You can also start files with a collection of scans. I use a file to keep track of my monthly expenses or traveling expenses...no more paper receipts folded in my wallet! You will not be disappointed. It has some high def features that I don't use.
Fantastic app!
by Little Walter is dead :( on 2018/07/07 21:01
Long gone are the days where we had to have a dedicated scanner with crappy software to hook up to a computer in order to scan household documents when requested from outside agencies or for archival which was followed inconsistently anyway because it was too much trouble to set up. So easy to use TurboScan in the fly with great results even for 11” X 17” documents, Can email as PDFs immediately, totally flexible for rapid response items to get things done with no nagging back of your mind “when I get around to it” procrastination. Retain cars proof of insurance docs, download from insurer and email to others on your policy. Too many uses to mention.
Beats a scanner any day!
by coldcash57 on 2018/02/02 13:37
When I upgraded my Imac to a new one, you would think that software would exist that would upgrade my scanner as well, right? Wrong! HP did have an upgrade, but it ran so slowly that the scanner was basically rendered useless. Then I discovered Turboscan. For a mere 5 bucks I can carry a high-resolution scanner with me anywhere! I tend lose hard copy, so I use it for everything important: important letters I receive, last months bill, paycheck stubs. Give them a name, and throw them into a folder on my Mac, easy to find by name, or even scanning visually. Would give it a higher rating but 5 stars is as high as it goes! Thank you, Turboscan!
LOVE this app!!
by Moges85 on 2018/05/08 14:42
I’ve been using TurboScan for several years now and absolutely love it! It is SO convenient to be able to scan items by taking a picture of them on my phone, instead of having to be at home, with an actual scanner, get on my computer, etc. I can scan a document anytime, anywhere with just a few clicks and immediately email or text them to whoever I need to. I’ve never had any problems with it and no complaints ever about an image not being clear enough, etc. Looks like it was scanned on an actual scanner every time. SO easy to use. Again, love this app and highly recommend it!
Best of the best. Been using for several years.
by PaulGK on 2018/02/03 00:17
I normally don’t write reviews, but I can honestly tell you that Turbo Scan is my go to app for tracking expenses and scanning receipts back to my corporate office for items purchased and saving items for tax time. I love the ability to be able to change from photo quality to black-and-white to color-unbelievable scanning app been using since the first iteration of the iPhone. I don’t own any of the company I am not being paid anything from the company, (however I’d take a little bit of money if you want to give me some!) Just kidding. Nice job guys, keep up the good work with the app.
I can't live without this app anymore
by Cinnamon Panda on 2017/10/26 16:22
As the title states, this app has become an essential part of my job! I don't always have access to a scanner and this does the job nicely. Plus with some newer features like the password lock, I feel safer with my secure documents being on my phone without having to clear out my history due to HIPAA concerns. My only gripe is minor, namely that certain areas don't scan so well (large black spots for example) in the BW mode, it leaves a spotty white area inside the black. In all though would highly recommend this app to others especially if you deal with a lot of paperwork on a daily basis.
What a great scanner !!
by 72 year old codger on 2018/08/20 19:09
This is surely one of my most beloved apps. I am a professor and write out lecture notes for my classes at Carnegie Mellon University, then copy them with this app and distribute the copies to my class. This app is great. I've been using it for the above purpose for many years. The only (slight) improvement I would request would be an option to have the initial framing be a tiny bit larger, so it would include my notes at the very margins. Sometimes those get cut off and I have to manually enlarge the frame. No biggie, but it would be nice to have the option to request larger framing from the get go. In any case, this is an absolutely awesome app.
Scans great, backup is terrible
by thadangazone on 2018/08/15 12:00
The scan quality is great. It’s easy and convenient. I would have expected that recovering accidentally lost items was easier (or in my case possible). Even a simple “undo” button or a “trash” folder that periodically empties itself that you can recover unintentionally deleted items would make it worth the $6 you spend on the app. They would defend themselves and say that they rely on iCloud, which is somewhat valid in the case of a full backup or historic recovery. They could fix this ONE thing and I would change my rating to 5 stars. As it is I lost a massively important document that I cannot recover (and don’t have a hard copy of any longer) because the Derek’s function is the most unforgiving thing I’ve ever seen in an app that deals with documents
I must be wrong
by Neillm2001 on 2018/04/07 19:02
Tried S/W on a multicolored page. Some background colors were darker than others and had a straight edge. The resulting scan only retrieved the areas containing text on a white surface and ignored the white text on a black surface. Also a horizontal series of color photos along the bottom edge were ignored. The scans were made in color mode. The attempts were made using a magazine that was on hand as a trial. Attempts to use multi-shots did not result in better readable results of the text. This was probably due to the movement of camera that souls occur if someone was hand holding the camera. Product is probably good for black on white . Just wonder about other situations. Fury the free version if it is available. Once you open an app it yours. Apple doesn't seem to believe in trial periods.
Iconoclast App
by Wanna49 on 2017/09/21 01:17
TurboScan belongs to an elite group of apps that are truly "Jobessian"(relentless in the pursuit of beauty through simplicity and efficiency.) TurboScan will do to traditional scanners what the iPod did for walkmans a few years ago: they will be completely replaced! The only disadvantage to a traditional scanners is the inability to scan multi-page docs. I solve this problem by arranging up to eight (8) pages together per scan and the quality of the picture still quite good. Plus with TurboScan gone is the "inbox" or paper tray: paper goes from scan to cloud and hard paper discarded ipso facto (while practicing a strong backup system.) Love you TurboScan!
A huge time saver!
by Cindula on 2018/08/28 14:58
I use this app primarily when I want to practice a piece of music from the archives of my church. When the music book is old, worn, and especially out of print, I prefer to make a copy which I can mark up and spread out rather than having to turn pages. This app allows me to copy the music without damaging the book and saves me time from having to adjust the music in a photocopy machine. Also, I love the fact that I can then save the copy in a pdf file and can email it to myself as well as to our church soloist. I also use this app to copy a random note and save it in a folder.
Best app! I've been using it for 5 years and nothing can compare!
by Venus Mercury on 2017/08/31 13:20
I use this app for everything. Making copies of deposits when I go to the bank, copies of legal documents to email out, copies of my son's homework so he doesn't have to do it again if he loses it. Just email it to the teacher and call it a day. Amazing app that has outstanding quality. One time I got a scanned copy of a legal document from the district attorney's office. You could barely read it. Luckily I had a turbo scan of the original. Everyone was asking for my copy of it because it was better. Simply terrific app!
Life changing!
by 5k finished today! on 2018/12/04 14:51
Fantastic easy way to send a high-quality image where I need it to go (emails, Google Classroom, etc.). Cropping takes only a second and the image quality is far better than our copy center scanners. My college student says it is indispensable because for her many projects absolutely everything needs to be uploaded to turn in to her professors and she can’t imagine not having this. It’s also great because we can go back and retrieve scans as well. I couldn’t be nearly as productive without this tool. Best few dollars I’ve ever invested to save time and aggravation!
OK scanner
by MKB58 on 2018/01/23 22:47
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 to the cloud 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.
Does iOS 11 render this obsolete?
by Wilcoghost on 2017/10/04 19:47
Tucked away in the native Notes app of iOS 11 is a document scanner. As a longtime TurboScan user and promoter, I was interested in doing a comparison of the two. Same document, same lighting conditions, same phone. The TurboScan produced pdf was infinitely superior to the Notes app produced version. It’s not even close. The quality of the TurboScan version is excellent. The iOS produced version was fair, if I’m being kind. Does the native app render TurboScan obsolete? Not in the least. Are you serious about scanning great quality PDFs and images with your phone? If yes, then you need TurboScan.
Best App that I have downloaded
by Sugar Shelly 882 on 2017/12/01 05:50
TurboScan gets the highest possible rating I can give. I use this app to send contracts and agreements to clients to review and sign, create digital photos from old photos, create receipts at work, create visual aides for my kids school projects. The app is so easy to use and prompts you to edit, choose file type and save to other locations. I don’t usually contribute reviews but I highly recommend this app to anyone that needs a seamless tool to make life so much easier. ** I have had this app since it was free to download. This is one app that is worth paying for.
Outstanding
by Intrepid49 on 2019/02/25 19:51
I frequently need to grab a copy of a jazz chart for practice after a rehearsal. Since I can't take a part with me, I use my iPhone camera to snap a photo for printing later on. Problem is that I usually end up with a dark color shot that is hard to read. I have used TurboScan for a while now, and my only gripe is that if I need to scan multiple pages, while holding my trombone, it gets a bit tricky. It’s hard to hold my horn, and tap scan, then tap “done” on the top right, then “next”, the “+”, then scan another page. Can these all be in the same area on the screen, or toggled, like a soft-key?
Must have! Should be an Award winner!
by cleta on 2019/02/09 16:39
Now that cell phones have decent cameras, this app is a must have for documents and record keeping. Never lose a receipt or important document again. Store it within TurboScan and/or your photos & store in the cloud. I was at a hotel recently and a very upset fellow guest needed to send a pdf file to a lawyer and the hotel didn’t have a fax machine. I recommended TurboScan, he downloaded the app, took a picture of his document and emailed it in less than 5min. Boy, was he happy! I save all my documents this way. And I recommend you do too!
I love TurboScan!
by Andy Spamen on 2018/09/02 19:40
I have been telling everyone that this is the most important tool I use in my day to day assignments ! I’m an emergency response Child abuse investigator ! Often time in the process of documentation I’m presented with documents that are valuable to my disposition and valuable as evidence! I would have to sit there and hand write court orders which were incredibly long but now Turbo scan saves me time and that’s why I love it it’s like having a copy machine in my phone and I get to print my documents and clearly submitt them to court! I just love you product! Thank you J Ocampo M.A.
The best scanner out there
by Me track time on 2018/05/12 20:28
I’ve had this app for a couple years and it’s awesome, to the point I rarely use the scanner in my office any more. I’ve scanned everything from receipts to large format engineering drawings, and the result is every bit as good as any stationary scanner. The only two drawbacks are 1. The lack of a custom page size option (they finally added 11x17 which was a huge help) and 2. It’s confusing to save a file in Dropbox. It has a good iCloud Drive integration, I wish the same single button was an option for Dropbox.
Love this app...

I have used this app for several years and can't live without it. I scan docs and receipts on the spot, 1-click upload them in .pdf to Box, and everything is accessible wherever I need it. The app auto-crops your document to cut out the background and lets you choose lightness/darkness levels so you get crisp copies in almost any light conditions. Easy to scan multi-page docs and can 1-click share to email, text, other apps. I've tried out a few scanning apps and this is best I've found.
Scanning since 2014!!!! - just get it!

I started this review because I scrolled back in all of my standard documents looking for something and realize that I’ve been using the products since June 2014. It is by far the best way I have ever seen for quickly photographing scanning and sending documents any number of ways. A great app does exactly what it supposed to do when it says it’s going to do it. Turboscan does that and more. It corrects camera shake, straightens documents, allows for manual override, and many other things. Just get it!
BEST SCANNER

I have been using this app for years. The first two years I had it, I was still in the US Army. I was able to scan and retain important documents and always have them with me on my phone. This was the biggest lifesaver in the Army. Documents mean a lot no matter what you do in the Military! Now, I can carry my retirement documents with me and continue to scan and save documents from the doctors appointments I have. Fantastic! I have used others but lots of times there are up charges for certain abilities. I am SOOOOOO THANKFUL FOR THIS APP!! Way to go guys!!!
Great App

I use this app mostly to document field log sheets. At the end of a day in the field, I open up this app on my phone and take pics of multiple pages of hand notes. Then I simply email them to myself. This app sends them to me as a .pdf file instead of a .jpg. This is wonderful because the .pdf files are about 1/20th the size of a .jpg. This way it emails very quickly. It is easy to group many pics together and send them all at once. This app also works will with dropbox which I use a lot.
I’ve used Turbo Scan for years and I absolutely love it!

This is an amazing tool for any smartphone user. I run a small business that often requires me to scan and email items and before that I used it in business school. It has worked brilliantly every time. I’ve gone from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone XS and this app is nothing short of magical as it stores all your old scans and even names them, usually correctly by reading the text. I could go on and on but trust me on this, this is one of the best tools ever invented.
Love the app but...

I’ve been using this app for months now and I’m very happy with the updates that have come but the most recent ones have been getting on my nerve. I like to play music while I’m at work and I scan often with my job. I’ll be in the middle of a big document and the app will completely close out and as I click back in it will say that I need to restart my entire phone. When I do that it does nothing. The app will still continue closing out. I hope that this will be fixed. I’m not going to stop my music for this. (It’s the only thing I could think) the app worked before with the music playing. It’s a great app, just needs to be fixed up a little more.
