Very easy to use and doesn’t give any issues when using it. I’ve been using it for about 5 years.
Best pdf scanner in the App Store

Best mobile scanner I’ve found

I’ve been using this for several months and had no problems. Only issue is that I would want to be able to sort documents into files

Ever since I updated to the new version when I go to take a pic of my document it snaps it to quickly before I even get ready.
Excellent app for writers and cpa or business folks
by SexyFelineMachine on 2019/11/07 22:13
I write for a hobby and am studying about finances. Very easy to take snapshots of all my hand written stuff. I lost a bunch of stuff in a flood and was angrier than a hillary supporter last election when I lost who knows how much in it. Can move, edit, rename, and append PDFs which is amazing for the price. Can scan in shop forms easily. Also this annoyed me at first, but the auto crop is not always easy to use. However, you can manually crop it. Something I wish I had know at the start. So do not worry about the perfect picture. Just get A picture.
Ok

This app is amazing and a great tool. I work in Real Estate and use this app to send letters from NYC to the supers. Makes keeping them up to date way easier.
Excellent scan app
by zshubaily on 2019/11/07 04:22
This has to be the best scan app on the market. Reliable, fast, and clear. Can’t get much better. Worth purchasing as well.
In all ways, a tremendous value for OCR
by THT2010 on 2019/11/07 02:04
I have used various iterations of Genius Scan for years. Just tonite I needed a reliable way to convert scans to text and the app came through again. I scanned a doc to my Mac desktop then saved in Files, which is accessible easily from the Genius Scan app. Make sure you turn the Text option on before import. It worked with probably 95% accuracy, a steal for a one time charge of eight bucks. Just buy it!

I love Genius Scan and could not do business without it! It just WORKS!!!
Used to be better
by Jc8393679 on 2019/11/06 11:54
Before the last few updates, this app worked perfectly. Now, unfortunately, it doesn’t capture pages that easily - takes 5-6 tries to do what I could do easily in one try previously.
wow

I love this app, but I think there should be an option to share via text. If there is, I’d love to know how!
Actively disabling functionality
by tcshell on 2019/11/04 15:19
Genius scan has been one of my favorite scanning apps, until what seems to be a recent update where they have killed the ability to export to Dropbox via the “Export to Files” option. That option allowed exporting a file into Dropbox app without using the Genius scan direct Dropbox integration (for which they charge money). Now that this possibility is disabled, the app isn’t as useful for me.
Fantastic App!!

by Eagleknight900 on 2019/11/03 22:10
I love this app. I love how everything is very simple but you can go into a good amount of detail if need be. When scanning, this app makes it super easy to crop photos for precision, as well as allow you to edit the filter when desired. Very satisfied with this app and have and will continue to recommend it.

Very disappointed
by smartconsumer!!! on 2019/10/30 01:31
I paid extra for the bells and whistles but the emails O send using this app are rarely sent and if they are, they consistently delayed! This app has been a huge waste of time and money.
Actually works
by stacyh88 on 2019/10/30 01:27
Tried 5 other apps that all wanted money before this one and I was not going to pay for 1 single page I needed converted lol this app allowed me to create a PDF and send to my email without paying and without a watermark. Highly recommend! Was easy to use!
It is okay. Gets the job done
by migor2d2 on 2019/10/30 00:50
Sometimes, it takes forever to send a picture to a email. It is disappointing that to upload to my drive I have to buy the premium.

I simply want to make copies of travel receipts and I typically take a pic of receipt - when I take picture of receipt with this app, it inverts the receipt - nope - not interested in investigating this rotten feature and figuring out what went wrong - whoever came up with app was searching for a solution to a problem that does not exist - if your hobby is sorting and saving receipts, this app might help you complete your bucket list - mike
Awesome app

Great Program
by The BCS Team on 2019/10/25 04:18
I recommend this to every new client of mine to utilize while we are working together, as they have to send me different docs throughout the duration of the services I provide. My clients find using it very easy, and I collect docs faster and easier, allowing me to provide a pleasant experience to my clients.
Great for expense reports
by Mrob3535 on 2019/10/24 22:29
My company doesn’t have an expense report program, so we are left to only a spreadsheet and taking pictures of our receipts. This app helps to consolidate all the images into one small file to send to accounting. A+.

Easy to use, cost and time saving, liberating and environmentally friendly. I find myself using this app again and again as part of my mobile office. The user experience is self-explanatory, and the features correct images including color and work to align/square up documents well. I also like that it stores docs for me for future access. Love it.

I have been using Genuis Scan for years. It saves us me tons of time getting all the receipts I need for my expense reports related to my travel for work. Simply taking the picture of a receipt as soon as I get them after the purchase saves me hours.

I love this app, but wish there were folders
by jenniexfuller on 2019/10/19 18:00
I have the pro version and while I can search my documents, I really wish that I had the ability to organize my files into folders within the app. If the app had that capability (wether with an upgrade or not) as well as the capability to print directly from the app (as opposed to emailing it or uploading it (google drive, Dropbox, etc) first WITHOUT HAVING TO UPGRADE then this app would certainly earn 5 stars! This app is a life saver for any mom. I can snap photos of my children’s work or at school meetings for example. I have a paperless method to keep up with important documents.
Awesome

This is the scanner app you MUST HAVE
by Jtpo1982 on 2018/01/31 00:36
I’ve been using Genius Scan for almost 2 years now, I rarely leave a review for any app, but I feel like this one deserves to be recognized. It is very easy to use, the clarity on the scanned document is great, there’s lots of customizable scanning settings you can choose from, you can also have it automatically upload to dropbox or Google Drive, I even was able to contact the developer about a simple change to the sorting of folders within Google drive by alphabetical order and day were able to accommodate the request in their next update which was extremely helpful. If you are on the go a lot like I am and not always at your desk this app is an absolute lifesaver. Even when I am in my office I don’t even use my copy scanner anymore because it takes too long and the quality on The genius scan app is just as good if not better, and it’s much quicker. Save yourself a ton of time and start using this app today.
Excellent document scanning and editing app
by Giramot on 2019/04/27 16:55
What a perfectly fitting name for an app - Genius! I’ve installed three apps by these genius app developers namely: Genius Scan; Genius Fax and Genius Sign, and I’ve found them all indeed quite genius and the best set of any other competing apps. All the apps are intelligently developed and are very easy and intuitive to use. Excellent set of apps and I’ve no negative feedback on any of them. Excellent set of apps and congratulations to the developers!! The Genius Scan is amazingly precise in automatically capturing images of documents and receipts and then perfectly orienting them vertically and automatically making the image quality the best even if you are working in even very poor lighting condition. Excellent set of tools are provided to edit, apply filters and formats. The app provides other too many features to work with the scanned images. In short, it’s an app everyone needs to have for their iPhone.
5+ years... Only Scanning App I've Ever Used
by B_adcock on 2018/10/09 20:01
I've had this app since the iPhone 5s was released around 2013; since then every phone I've owned has had it installed. The fact that I've never had a need for or desire to explore another scanning app is the greatest aspect about it. I primarily use the *free version for PDF scans [from 1page thru 17 pages before]. The MAGIC feature which automatically scans for... detects, crops, then enahances is great. Provided you heed the tips the app provides to achieve best results. For the average college student, employee, grad student, etc... That only needs to scan something occasionally, wants it to be easy/quick/shareable and reliable... I'd definitely recommend this scanning app. *Since I've never needed to utilize the functions of the paid version, I can't attest to those aspects of the app. But if your at the point of paying for a scanning app. You probably aren't reading this! 🤙🏼😂*
Love this app!
by BodyBasics on 2018/12/27 16:26
I had used a desktop scanner for years. The scanner cost $400 and was a pain to use. When the company who manufactured it stopped upgrading the software, I found myself in a quandary as ai had upgraded my iMac’s OS and now could I longer use my expensive scanner. So I went to try this $7 app and I am thrilled. Not only does it work well, it saves me time because now I scan my receipts as I go instead of letting them pile up on my desk. And because I’m sending them to a cloud drive, my bookkeeper has access to them faster too. The software provides great options for scanning, hanging up pages, as well as tools to enhance the image. And finally, customer service is fast and courteous. In my opinion you’d have to be an idiot not to use genius scan!
Love it. Would upgrade for $3. Not for $8
by FreddyLazzaris on 2018/06/04 13:11
I love the app. Used it and recommended it since 2013 I’m the free version. Since a week or two ago the “hidden” Save-to-Dropbox functionality was gone from the free version. Fair enough BUT, a) It happened In the background, not through an upgrade, sonI del cheated. B) I would happily upgrade just for that function; I do not need anything else but not for $7.99. I would happily pay a couple of bucks, not so much c) i considered the cloud option but again, totally out of price. I already pay Dropbox and Apple cloud, plus iDrice cloud for backups. $3 a month for just a small subset of documents? Guys, that should be the annual cost, not monthly. It seems you are trying to skin off a few paying clients instead of broadening your base and making us loyal. Sadly, After 5 years of happy customer and promoter, I will start to look around for other options. That costs you way more than the extra dollars you are trying to charge.
Great App
by Slightly123 on 2019/09/16 16:20
I honestly use this app to scan everything and have been for years. You can read the documents extremely clearly and it even has text recognition. I legit recommend it for anyone who regularly needs PDFs because you can export your pictures as PDFs directly from the app. I’d recommend for black and white copies though. The only issue I have is the color recognition isn’t that great. It also doesn’t recognize highlights. If you’re highlight is yellow it just makes the words yellow in the page. HOWEVER, if it’s doing pictures the quality is pretty decent again. It’s a weird kind of issue but doesn’t deter from the fact that it is the absolute best scanning app on the App Store, and yes, I have tried them.
Fantastic for the most part...
by ec-lec-tic on 2018/05/22 23:23
I like this app for what it can do... what features are lacking (and I don’t use it enough to pay $8+tax for the “+” version) are small things: I’d like to be able to change the name of my files (removed from a version years ago), to access *any* way to save out of app (in this version), the edit tools would be great if the “color” version didn’t look awful — esp. for signatures in blue, just for example. LOVE the ability to fix key-stoning (why isn’t this in native Apple photo apps, among others??) and the overall convenience. The free version is good for people who don’t need to use it often or have no access to a decent scanner on the fly.
Easy shortcut to scanning
by mjeffer2 on 2017/08/17 21:04
I love how easy it is to scan a file with Genius Scan. When your personal scanner or work scanner isn't working or is overrun with other jobs, this is an awesome alternative. You can rotate pages, crop them, rearrange pages, and even convert from black-and-white to "photo," which scans your image over exactly as it appeared when you took the scan ("picture"). The only downside to this app is that you won't immediately receive your scan(s) if you're sending it/them via email; in fact, mine don't appear in my inbox until 24-48 hours later. I'm unsure if that's a wifi issue for me or not, but that happens to me no matter what wifi I'm using. But, overall, I would definitely recommend this app!
Who needs a scanner?
by elainevdw on 2018/07/03 19:01
I haven’t scanned a document on a flatbed scanner since downloading Genius Scan. The magic and batch scanning options are nearly flawless, and there are more than enough export and saving options to get your scan wherever it needs to go. Comes in particularly handy during tax season — I put aside everything I receive in the mail in a folder on my desk, then when I have everything, I scan it in 30 seconds flat and package it for my accountant. It’s also made it easy to save my favorite family recipes (written on all sorts of different kinds of paper) to a single location to make them easy to find or refer to when I’m at the store.
Many uses, user-friendly, and extremely high quality
by Emily1146 on 2018/04/16 17:45
I rarely purchase paid apps and hardly ever review apps, but I use this one so much that I really wanted to write a review! This is probably the best app I’ve ever purchased. The app has allowed me to email important documents without access to a scanner. It’s so convenient to be able to scan and send something right away, and you can send them as PDFs, so no one knows that you’re sending them from a phone. I’ve never had an issue with anyone being able to open a scan I’ve sent from the program. It’s also just an easy way to track paperwork digitally. The quality of the scans is surprisingly excellent… I even used this app to scan photos that I used for a slideshow at my wedding - I just put the scanned photos into a PowerPoint. The photos still looked great even when displayed on a projector screen. It worked much better than many other programs that are specifically designed to create slideshows If you need an easy way to track and send digital files, this is a fantastic app.
I use this frequently, great app
by Azbridges on 2018/07/04 12:19
Sometimes you want a document to be a pdf, not a JPEG. This app is easy to use, the scanned documents are easy to crop using the touch screen and the quality has been acceptable to everyone I've sent scanned document to. I have only used the free version, and so far (2-3 years), it's all I've needed. I did decide to purchase a fax package within the app for the odd times I've needed to fax. But since that need has been rare, I still have faxes left in the package. Emailing typically dies the trick. If you're looking for a fast, user-friendly way to scan some documents (in batches or single docs), this app just works.
Thank you, gracias, merci!!!
by Nessa_Geek on 2018/09/28 18:45
There aren’t enough ways to express my appreciation for this app—seriously! This is the most useful tool in my arsenal and has saved me from having to run home or into my office or to find a public scanner or fax—gasp! Long gone are those old days of panic and “I’ll get it to you as soon as I can.” I don’t recall how I came upon this brilliant app but I have been enjoying it for years and I tell everyone about it, and you should do the same. So much so, that this is the first and only app review I’ve taken the time to write as yet. Bravo, developers! Please keep up the great work on this FREE app. And, again, THANK YOU!!!
Update
by I do not care. on 2018/10/03 16:00
Hello! I love genius scan, butbte last update added some things that make it hard for me to use. When I open a folder, and just want to email 1 page, or a selected amount, it ends up trying to send the entire folder. I used to be able to enlarge or simply send the page that was open, now I have to actually check the chosen page to send from a reduced sized picture of all Pages in the folder. And I can’t figure out how to enlarge them simply email that to make sure I have chosen the correct page. I liked the earlier version better where I could open a file and simply click in the page and it would enlarge and I could email it. I live genius sac but I can’t figure out how to make it work like it used to!! Thank you
Best Scanner Out There
by freelance_auditor on 2019/02/14 18:46
As an auditor this is my most used app on my iPhone. I’ve used this app for a long time and have seen it go through several major improvements over that timeframe. Google Drive integration is by far the most important feature for me. I’ve never had an issue with this app and am constantly referring my clients and fellow auditors to it. The most notable improvement is the continual improvement in speed I’ve seen. The Google Drive feature used to be painfully slow but now it’s very quick. Would be nice to have the folder navigation feature enhanced for quicker navigation.
One of the best apps you can get
by SharkosaurusRex on 2018/02/13 16:22
I’m a forgetful person and I do a lot of freelance work. I used to take pictures of things or write them down on my arm. I’d also have to wait around for people to show up or mail off paperwork that I had signed. Now, if it’s scannable, I just San everything. I have loads of information saved away thanks to this app. And what makes it even better is that I have more sensitive information behind passwords. I can’t stop using or recommending this app. It’s completely changed the way I do paperwork and has made my life so much easier, I could never imagine life without it.
Homebuying is easier!
by CASokolByrne on 2019/06/18 13:41
A lot of paperwork is needed to get a mortgage these days. Many new homebuyers use their smart phones as their computer, and DO NOT have easy access to scanners or fax machines. I’m a Mortgage Loan Officer, and when I discovered Genius Scan last year, it was a game changer! I have recommended this easy-to-use app to HUNDREDS now, and what a difference it’s made to my business! My applicants are able to take pictures of documents, convert them to pdf files with the Genius Scan app, and email them securely to me in an instant. It’s free advertising for you guys, and MUCH LESS TIME AND STRESS for my buyers and I. Woo-hoo!!
Genius Scan is Life!!!
by Lauren (SRS) on 2018/08/28 14:03
I’ve been using Genius Scan for 3 years. It’s literally one of the most used apps on my phone for my business. I admit, I tried to be cheap and use the free version. After a month, I decided I needed to buy the full version to unlock all the awesome features. Ever since, I use the app to send important documents wherever I am! My husband and I operate two group homes for kids and adults with developmental disabilities. We’re licensed by the state and nonprofit, so the paperwork is unimaginable. This app is crucial to my business and I give it 10 stars! Plus the new update makes it official lol. I love it!
Saved history
by cjritz on 2018/09/10 01:13
I started using Genius Scan for work, but quickly realized it could be used to preserve my family history. When larger desktop scanners failed to produce the quality I needed to keep the handwriting, this app (the free version) worked magnificently. My wife scanned my grandmother’s scrapbook of my grandfather’s WWII photos and her handwritten captions. With a little help from photoshop, she was able to reprint the handwriting onto archival paper and place the pictures back with the captions. Without this app, my family would have surely lost the little we had left of my grandmother.
The best if found!
by Amber & Doug on 2018/10/16 06:41
My photos/scannable I do w Genius scan come out looking like o used a scanner rather then exactly like they would have if I were to take a picture of the paper myself! You don’t have to worry about getting the corners exactly asymmetrical bc the app allows you to adjust the sheet & somewhat of an angle! I love it, I am a multiple business owner and this is the only scan app I use! I also have used quite a few faxes set up through the internet & Believe this app suggested I try Genius fax.. I did, also very pleased! Cancelled all other online fax subscriptions & I’m strictly Geniusfied 🙌🏼
A MUST HAVE!
by HuffsnGrunts on 2018/08/29 01:21
This app is great. Scan and email documents w/ease. Can incorporate w/other apps as needed, as well. Example: w/ adobe acrobat I can edit document w/free text, send to genius scan and email. (Prefer genius scan over adobe scan, myself) I’ve used this app to send pdf documents to schools, doctors, billing, for flexible spending recoup, to submit paperwork for new jobs and more. Screenshot, download jpeg, take a pic w/camera and convert to pdf and email directly from app. Simple to use. Functions appropriately. Saves documents. Organizes. Love the new updated format. Has saved me time over and over again.
Excellent app for writers and cpa or business folks
by SexyFelineMachine on 2019/11/07 22:13
I write for a hobby and am studying about finances. Very easy to take snapshots of all my hand written stuff. I lost a bunch of stuff in a flood and was angrier than a hillary supporter last election when I lost who knows how much in it. Can move, edit, rename, and append PDFs which is amazing for the price. Can scan in shop forms easily. Also this annoyed me at first, but the auto crop is not always easy to use. However, you can manually crop it. Something I wish I had know at the start. So do not worry about the perfect picture. Just get A picture.
Business office wherever you go
by Contract manager on 2019/02/25 23:07
All you have to do is hover your phone over a document and it converts it to PDF. No more unreadable, mal-proportioned photos of documents. It is so easy to Genius Scan a letter or receipt at a store, bank, gas station or anywhere. Email it to yourself and keep them all in one folder. At tax time everything is right there in one place. Take the extra step to put the details in the subject matter of your email and you don’t even have to open the email to see what it is. Thank you Genius Scan for making life so much easier.
I have outgrown this app
by Atavachron on 2019/01/06 20:19
Update: I have moved on to another highly rated app for the OCR (optical character recognition) feature that turns a scan into actual ASCII characters that can be cut and pasted elsewhere like word processor apps. Also if I save my scan to cloud storage and can’t remember the exact folder/ name of the file I can search for a keyword in it (like the store where the receipt came from) and find it that way. Genius Scan doesn’t offer on-device OCR, which I require. For a full review of different scanner apps, read the article over at The Wirecutter for other good points to consider. ————- I haven't felt the need to get the paid upgrade. The basic version scans and serves my needs. The ads aren't intrusive. I felt compelled to write a review when I saw someone claiming the free basic app won't scan. Nope. Not true. I scan tons of stuff from receipts to my kid's school work and drawings. I don't know if it's the best scanner app since I didn't bother trying any others. This did the job for me. If you can't get it to work, try taking your finger off the camera lens. 😏
Invaluable for business receipts
by TheresainAK on 2018/04/18 20:46
Genius scan is an essential part of my business record keeping. The magic function (automatically locates the edges of the receipt and chooses the best scan mode) and batch mode make it even better. I love that it automatically backs up my scans to Dropbox (Google drive, OneDrive, box and many other options are also available) so I don't have to worry if it is actually saved. It also makes saving a file exactly where I want it in those services easy, remembering where I last saved a scan.
Easy and convenient.
by 3goodsteps on 2018/09/29 01:31
Update - changes to how my college accepts files to their servers have rendered this app useless for uploading by FTP which has seriously decreased its usefulness for me. It’s easier just to use the scanner on my printer than to scan with this app, email It to myself, and upload via computer. Mostly use to scan exam keys and upload to my exam archive. Works great. The one time I had an issue with the upload the support person was beyond helpful. My only issue is once a year when I need to change the password for my college. Genius Scan won’t let you edit the existing FTP so you have to redo the whole thing. I finally got smart and screen shot the settings.
New version made app worse
by Ofnan on 2018/09/24 19:32
I absolutely loved this app. Was one of my most favorite and used apps. The new version totally change things for the worse. You used to be able to scroll through your documents. Now you have to look at tiny little icons that I can’t even see to select the document. You also were able to email a document immediately after scanning, now you have to go back to the list of documents and select it, which adds an extra unnecessary step. If you try to email something after scanning it will email every other document in that folder which makes no sense. Remember, if it isn’t broken don’t fix it.
I love this app, but wish there were folders
by jenniexfuller on 2019/10/19 18:00
I have the pro version and while I can search my documents, I really wish that I had the ability to organize my files into folders within the app. If the app had that capability (wether with an upgrade or not) as well as the capability to print directly from the app (as opposed to emailing it or uploading it (google drive, Dropbox, etc) first WITHOUT HAVING TO UPGRADE then this app would certainly earn 5 stars! This app is a life saver for any mom. I can snap photos of my children’s work or at school meetings for example. I have a paperless method to keep up with important documents.
Good, not perfect
by lucahimself on 2018/09/23 19:41
It used to be a fantastic app for scanning. After the last update, it is still good, but it's not quite as easy to use. When scanning a multipage document, now you have first to scan it all, with wrong crops and wrong enhancements along the way (such as color instead of bw), and then correct them all at once. The old way, of being able to get the scan right one page at the time, was better I think. It would also be nice to have a simple fast way to choose for each scan the type of all pages (color, bw, etc). All in all though, still a good app.
Awesome for my work
by Hk20161115 on 2018/03/08 23:18
I’ve had this app for years. The first few years I had it, it was very choppy in regards to performance. Sometimes things would scan, sometimes not. Sometimes it would upload to google drive, sometimes it wouldn’t. As they have released updates, it has gotten better and better and better. The magic scan function is AMAZING about 99% of the time. The auto upload to google drive is also amazing!!! Thanks for keeping your app updated and for the support I’ve received with the paid app. GREAT WORK!!!
I use this App a lot
by Nick Tomaras on 2017/07/02 00:23
I work at a Honda dealership where I need to send and receive insurance cards, registrations and drivers licenses. This app makes it super easy to convert the customers photos that they send me on a text message and convert it to a PDF so my work computer will print it out properly. I also use it to take a photo of the Bill of Sale and a MSO, convert it to a PDF then email it to the insurance company. This is a very handy and useful app. I have tried others but I now have Genius Scan on my dock so I can use it quickly. Thank you for making a great app!!!!!
Excellent!
by EstelaMMD on 2017/09/01 17:30
I recently downloaded this app referred to me by a colleague and is great! I use it for my work expenses and reporting when on the go! I just snap a picture of the receipt and email it as a pdf file to the expense reporting system we have and half my work is done! And without the burden of having to keep all those receipts all around, afraid of losing them. Love it! And the best is that it keeps them saved in the app if I need back up (for example, if I lose one). I use it even when I want to spare myself of papers and go digital. Highly recommended!
An essential for teachers who have students with special needs
by Katesydavis on 2019/08/18 00:10
I have a student who is legally blind. This app has made it so easy to make sure she has access to what she needs. For example, our vocab book does not come in digital format. This student needs text at a size 40 font, which isn’t feasible to print, so she needs it in pdf form and then she uses an app to write on the pdf, genius scan makes it so easy and fast to get her what she needs, also the black and white function makes it even easier for my student.
Thank you
by got4freethx on 2019/05/06 12:51
This app worked quick and easy. I am using the free version. It is easy to figure out. I sent my scan to my files on the iPhone. Be aware that it doesn’t work with emails other than gmail. It may depend on your email and make sure that email is in the mail app on your phone. I quit on it once because it didn’t work with my email service. It works well with gmail. I can’t say if I will ever need the features that require purchase. Based on the free app...it is worth paying for the additional features!
AMAZING!!!
by sqj579 on 2019/04/01 14:29
As a very busy physician and entrepreneur I use this app EVERY SINGLE DAY!! Thank you Genius Scan for making my life SO much more organized and simple!! I SCAN EVERYTHING!! insurance cards, Bills, receipts, tax docs, notices, insurance info etc and then have it at the tips of my fingers WHENEVER I need it so I’m never at a loss as to “where did I put that card or document??” or scrambling for something...it’s always either searchable in my email or Genius Scan! ☺️❤️ I DO NOT get any incentive for writing this or info above, but if you do not have this app then you are missing out BIG TIME!!
They took away my favorite feature.
by Steeevv on 2018/01/02 01:01
With Genius Scan I used to be able to save the things that I scanned in my phone’s photo library. Now I have to take a screenshot and crop it with another app. I’ve tried other scanning apps and none of them provide this feature that used to be available in Genius Scan. I’ve gone back to Genius Scan because it shows magnification of the corners for re-cropping in order to make a photo taken at an angle, rectangular. The other scanning apps don’t have that feature.
An invaluable business tool
by Kumarj on 2018/01/17 19:51
I have use this app for a few years and am very pleased with performance. After trying a few other mobile scan apps I have decided to use this exclusively. I also enjoy using the Genius sign add on app. Genius scan is especially good for keeping track of my receipts while on business travel. I regularly scan and save all of my receipts to a single folder in Genius Scan. At the end of my travel I can simply send a copy of that genius scan file to my office for reimbursement.
Very Useful & Easy to Use
by Zelda Andy G on 2017/09/16 23:51
Easy to use, legible scanned documents & fast processing & editing time allowing important information to quickly be made available to digitally store or send to someone else. I have also found this is beneficial for compiling important medical documents for a complex chronic pain & multiple chronic illnesses patient like myself. This app allows me to always have important information on hand in case of an emergency, meeting a new doctor & keeping all doctors in the loop about any new treatments, surgeries & ER/hospitalizations.
Genius Scan is as amazing as it’s must-have-co-tool...
by haffieldj on 2017/12/09 04:23
Genius Scan is by far the best scanning tool you can get. If you’re always on the go whether a businessmen/woman, mom, dad, teacher... If you’re constantly looking around wondering how to scan papers, pictures, documents... then look no further. And if you get it’s partner, Genius Fax, you’ll have all the tools you'll ever need to send, receive, make copies of anything. Best of all, it automatically converts to PDF format to minimize the docs size!!! *** Best tool/s you can have on your iPhone!!!
Even free version is super!
by bibiyarrozito on 2019/05/14 23:20
I almost deleted it when I realized i wasn’t able to connect to my google drive but guess what!? It’s just a sort of non intuitive way they have the hidden feature to USE OTHER apps to still make it free and super useful. I’d recommend playing around with the different features to find what you need. It’s well integrated with google drive and if you make changes it lets you know that the version hasn’t been shared / uploaded! Pretty cool feature for sure! :)
Extremely Worthwhile Business Tool
by BDzerna on 2018/03/13 18:54
This application is arguably the most important one that is on my phone aside from web browsing and email. I can’t tell you the amount of times I have to create PDFs from just an image. I no longer have to worry about fax machines or archival or any other types of storage since I know all my PDFs or now in one place and labeled and searchable as I want them. The integration with Google Drive is also really wonderful and I use it for monthly financials over and over again.
Saved me
by Reunion-here we go on 2018/04/20 19:48
I had to print, sign, scan and email a document immediately to secure a venue for my family reunion or lose the venue. I downloaded five scanning apps. Genius Scan was the only one that worked. The document was successfully sent and received and I am so grateful to Genius Scan. I am not good with electronics but it was easy. Terribly, the other apps interrupted the process with $ add-ons to continue and one app changed to a candy crush game? Thank you for taking customer needs seriously Genius Scan!
Awesome app
by Leer jet on 2019/08/20 11:30
I have been using this app now for over 2yrs I must say it is absolutely genius!! Awesome ability to turn any picture into a perfect pdf, email it, add it to other messaging apps, transfer files over airdrop absolutely awesome! Use it practically everyday. Scan a group of documents and name it as one file to send or save basically anywhere. Pay for only the features you want to use on the app, totally worth it especially for someone with a business on the go like me.
Makes my job so much easier!
by HIPPIEFLIPPIN on 2018/12/13 01:40
I was told about this app over a year ago and finally needed to use it about 3 months ago. It makes my life so much easier! I can scan all the daily paperwork and receipts in a matter of seconds, rename and email straight from the app to my company. My only gripe thus far is that I wish I had more time on this job to figure out all the ins and outs of the app. I have recommended it numerous times since I started using it and get the same response.
An intuitive app that is a useful tool.
by DaiWi75 on 2019/04/02 15:52
I am very pleased with the performance of this app. The app turns your phone into a high quality scanner. Features allow you to turn on and off your camera flash to get the proper lighting for your scan. You may take batch scans and use edit feature allows you to clean up, crop, resize, or delete scans. When your scan looks the way you want GS converts it to pdf and offers many options for sending the scan.
Testing app
by Hghgjuffffh on 2018/01/21 17:45
Got this app so I can have most of my documents on the go and if ever need it can set my phone to a printer via wifi connection ; and print. Using the app is very simple and straightforward no difficulties ,at least for me. When taking the picture to scan your document just take the image and the app will storage as a PDF file. The only reason I'm not giving 5stars is because haven't use the pay version yet. Will update it when got it. Give it a try.
I downloaded a few, this one’s best
by Brookie <333 on 2018/12/13 19:36
I had 4 documents I needed to scan. Downloaded about 3 other scanner apps, every other one kept popping up with a document limit and I had to do some tweaking to get the document to not be cut out. This app did a perfect job and required no tweaking. I received no notice of a limit, and the document literally came back beautifully. Like HD clear. Great export system too. It was far superior to the other apps I tried out. I’m impressed. Thanks
One thing to be better
by sprayker on 2017/08/02 16:44
I love this app! But I just want one thing fixed: the paper auto-sizing feature (the orange block that randomly shows up when scanning). I wish I could turn that off! It often screws up the scan and cuts off the page, making the process a bit frustrating and tricky when scanning many-page docs. Please make this an optional feature in the future! I want a scan of the entire page, not just the ink. Thanks!
Very helpful
by DPG312 on 2017/09/30 13:29
When I first started my own business selling insurance, this came in really handy; I used it to scan in all the completed applications while I was on the road. I would then use Genius Fax to fax them into the company. Now that I no longer selling Sharons, and I am working as a traveling RN, I am constantly filling out paperwork for different travel assignments and also licensing in different states. Once again, genius scan is extremely helpful for this. Definitely recommended
Feature request
by CD20132013 on 2017/08/30 00:23
1. Allow us to send you feedback somewhere else than on the Apple Review site. 2. The app should NOT ask me EVERY TIME whether or not I want to save a scan to a new document or an existing document. If I wanted to scan multiple pages, I would select the "Batch" scan. But when I select "Single" scan, I mean exactly that--a single scan. I don't want to have to say it twice. This unnecessary prompt makes it much slower to scan a stack of individual receipts.

Very easy to use and doesn’t give any issues when using it. I’ve been using it for about 5 years.

Best mobile scanner I’ve found

I’ve been using this for several months and had no problems. Only issue is that I would want to be able to sort documents into files

Ever since I updated to the new version when I go to take a pic of my document it snaps it to quickly before I even get ready.
Excellent app for writers and cpa or business folks
by SexyFelineMachine on 2019/11/07 22:13
I write for a hobby and am studying about finances. Very easy to take snapshots of all my hand written stuff. I lost a bunch of stuff in a flood and was angrier than a hillary supporter last election when I lost who knows how much in it. Can move, edit, rename, and append PDFs which is amazing for the price. Can scan in shop forms easily. Also this annoyed me at first, but the auto crop is not always easy to use. However, you can manually crop it. Something I wish I had know at the start. So do not worry about the perfect picture. Just get A picture.
Ok

Excellent scan app
by zshubaily on 2019/11/07 04:22
This has to be the best scan app on the market. Reliable, fast, and clear. Can’t get much better. Worth purchasing as well.
In all ways, a tremendous value for OCR
by THT2010 on 2019/11/07 02:04
I have used various iterations of Genius Scan for years. Just tonite I needed a reliable way to convert scans to text and the app came through again. I scanned a doc to my Mac desktop then saved in Files, which is accessible easily from the Genius Scan app. Make sure you turn the Text option on before import. It worked with probably 95% accuracy, a steal for a one time charge of eight bucks. Just buy it!

by Jc8393679 on 2019/11/06 11:54
Before the last few updates, this app worked perfectly. Now, unfortunately, it doesn’t capture pages that easily - takes 5-6 tries to do what I could do easily in one try previously.

Actively disabling functionality
by tcshell on 2019/11/04 15:19
Genius scan has been one of my favorite scanning apps, until what seems to be a recent update where they have killed the ability to export to Dropbox via the “Export to Files” option. That option allowed exporting a file into Dropbox app without using the Genius scan direct Dropbox integration (for which they charge money). Now that this possibility is disabled, the app isn’t as useful for me.
Fantastic App!!

I love this app. I love how everything is very simple but you can go into a good amount of detail if need be. When scanning, this app makes it super easy to crop photos for precision, as well as allow you to edit the filter when desired. Very satisfied with this app and have and will continue to recommend it.

by smartconsumer!!! on 2019/10/30 01:31
I paid extra for the bells and whistles but the emails O send using this app are rarely sent and if they are, they consistently delayed! This app has been a huge waste of time and money.
Actually works
by stacyh88 on 2019/10/30 01:27
Tried 5 other apps that all wanted money before this one and I was not going to pay for 1 single page I needed converted lol this app allowed me to create a PDF and send to my email without paying and without a watermark. Highly recommend! Was easy to use!
It is okay. Gets the job done

I simply want to make copies of travel receipts and I typically take a pic of receipt - when I take picture of receipt with this app, it inverts the receipt - nope - not interested in investigating this rotten feature and figuring out what went wrong - whoever came up with app was searching for a solution to a problem that does not exist - if your hobby is sorting and saving receipts, this app might help you complete your bucket list - mike

Great for expense reports
by Mrob3535 on 2019/10/24 22:29

I love this app, but wish there were folders
by jenniexfuller on 2019/10/19 18:00
I have the pro version and while I can search my documents, I really wish that I had the ability to organize my files into folders within the app. If the app had that capability (wether with an upgrade or not) as well as the capability to print directly from the app (as opposed to emailing it or uploading it (google drive, Dropbox, etc) first WITHOUT HAVING TO UPGRADE then this app would certainly earn 5 stars! This app is a life saver for any mom. I can snap photos of my children’s work or at school meetings for example. I have a paperless method to keep up with important documents.

This is the scanner app you MUST HAVE
by Jtpo1982 on 2018/01/31 00:36
I’ve been using Genius Scan for almost 2 years now, I rarely leave a review for any app, but I feel like this one deserves to be recognized. It is very easy to use, the clarity on the scanned document is great, there’s lots of customizable scanning settings you can choose from, you can also have it automatically upload to dropbox or Google Drive, I even was able to contact the developer about a simple change to the sorting of folders within Google drive by alphabetical order and day were able to accommodate the request in their next update which was extremely helpful. If you are on the go a lot like I am and not always at your desk this app is an absolute lifesaver. Even when I am in my office I don’t even use my copy scanner anymore because it takes too long and the quality on The genius scan app is just as good if not better, and it’s much quicker. Save yourself a ton of time and start using this app today.
Excellent document scanning and editing app
by Giramot on 2019/04/27 16:55
What a perfectly fitting name for an app - Genius! I’ve installed three apps by these genius app developers namely: Genius Scan; Genius Fax and Genius Sign, and I’ve found them all indeed quite genius and the best set of any other competing apps. All the apps are intelligently developed and are very easy and intuitive to use. Excellent set of apps and I’ve no negative feedback on any of them. Excellent set of apps and congratulations to the developers!! The Genius Scan is amazingly precise in automatically capturing images of documents and receipts and then perfectly orienting them vertically and automatically making the image quality the best even if you are working in even very poor lighting condition. Excellent set of tools are provided to edit, apply filters and formats. The app provides other too many features to work with the scanned images. In short, it’s an app everyone needs to have for their iPhone.
5+ years... Only Scanning App I've Ever Used
by B_adcock on 2018/10/09 20:01
I've had this app since the iPhone 5s was released around 2013; since then every phone I've owned has had it installed. The fact that I've never had a need for or desire to explore another scanning app is the greatest aspect about it. I primarily use the *free version for PDF scans [from 1page thru 17 pages before]. The MAGIC feature which automatically scans for... detects, crops, then enahances is great. Provided you heed the tips the app provides to achieve best results. For the average college student, employee, grad student, etc... That only needs to scan something occasionally, wants it to be easy/quick/shareable and reliable... I'd definitely recommend this scanning app. *Since I've never needed to utilize the functions of the paid version, I can't attest to those aspects of the app. But if your at the point of paying for a scanning app. You probably aren't reading this! 🤙🏼😂*
Love this app!
by BodyBasics on 2018/12/27 16:26
I had used a desktop scanner for years. The scanner cost $400 and was a pain to use. When the company who manufactured it stopped upgrading the software, I found myself in a quandary as ai had upgraded my iMac’s OS and now could I longer use my expensive scanner. So I went to try this $7 app and I am thrilled. Not only does it work well, it saves me time because now I scan my receipts as I go instead of letting them pile up on my desk. And because I’m sending them to a cloud drive, my bookkeeper has access to them faster too. The software provides great options for scanning, hanging up pages, as well as tools to enhance the image. And finally, customer service is fast and courteous. In my opinion you’d have to be an idiot not to use genius scan!
Love it. Would upgrade for $3. Not for $8
by FreddyLazzaris on 2018/06/04 13:11
I love the app. Used it and recommended it since 2013 I’m the free version. Since a week or two ago the “hidden” Save-to-Dropbox functionality was gone from the free version. Fair enough BUT, a) It happened In the background, not through an upgrade, sonI del cheated. B) I would happily upgrade just for that function; I do not need anything else but not for $7.99. I would happily pay a couple of bucks, not so much c) i considered the cloud option but again, totally out of price. I already pay Dropbox and Apple cloud, plus iDrice cloud for backups. $3 a month for just a small subset of documents? Guys, that should be the annual cost, not monthly. It seems you are trying to skin off a few paying clients instead of broadening your base and making us loyal. Sadly, After 5 years of happy customer and promoter, I will start to look around for other options. That costs you way more than the extra dollars you are trying to charge.
Great App
by Slightly123 on 2019/09/16 16:20
I honestly use this app to scan everything and have been for years. You can read the documents extremely clearly and it even has text recognition. I legit recommend it for anyone who regularly needs PDFs because you can export your pictures as PDFs directly from the app. I’d recommend for black and white copies though. The only issue I have is the color recognition isn’t that great. It also doesn’t recognize highlights. If you’re highlight is yellow it just makes the words yellow in the page. HOWEVER, if it’s doing pictures the quality is pretty decent again. It’s a weird kind of issue but doesn’t deter from the fact that it is the absolute best scanning app on the App Store, and yes, I have tried them.
Fantastic for the most part...
by ec-lec-tic on 2018/05/22 23:23
I like this app for what it can do... what features are lacking (and I don’t use it enough to pay $8+tax for the “+” version) are small things: I’d like to be able to change the name of my files (removed from a version years ago), to access *any* way to save out of app (in this version), the edit tools would be great if the “color” version didn’t look awful — esp. for signatures in blue, just for example. LOVE the ability to fix key-stoning (why isn’t this in native Apple photo apps, among others??) and the overall convenience. The free version is good for people who don’t need to use it often or have no access to a decent scanner on the fly.
Easy shortcut to scanning
by mjeffer2 on 2017/08/17 21:04
I love how easy it is to scan a file with Genius Scan. When your personal scanner or work scanner isn't working or is overrun with other jobs, this is an awesome alternative. You can rotate pages, crop them, rearrange pages, and even convert from black-and-white to "photo," which scans your image over exactly as it appeared when you took the scan ("picture"). The only downside to this app is that you won't immediately receive your scan(s) if you're sending it/them via email; in fact, mine don't appear in my inbox until 24-48 hours later. I'm unsure if that's a wifi issue for me or not, but that happens to me no matter what wifi I'm using. But, overall, I would definitely recommend this app!
Who needs a scanner?
by elainevdw on 2018/07/03 19:01
I haven’t scanned a document on a flatbed scanner since downloading Genius Scan. The magic and batch scanning options are nearly flawless, and there are more than enough export and saving options to get your scan wherever it needs to go. Comes in particularly handy during tax season — I put aside everything I receive in the mail in a folder on my desk, then when I have everything, I scan it in 30 seconds flat and package it for my accountant. It’s also made it easy to save my favorite family recipes (written on all sorts of different kinds of paper) to a single location to make them easy to find or refer to when I’m at the store.
Many uses, user-friendly, and extremely high quality
by Emily1146 on 2018/04/16 17:45
I rarely purchase paid apps and hardly ever review apps, but I use this one so much that I really wanted to write a review! This is probably the best app I’ve ever purchased. The app has allowed me to email important documents without access to a scanner. It’s so convenient to be able to scan and send something right away, and you can send them as PDFs, so no one knows that you’re sending them from a phone. I’ve never had an issue with anyone being able to open a scan I’ve sent from the program. It’s also just an easy way to track paperwork digitally. The quality of the scans is surprisingly excellent… I even used this app to scan photos that I used for a slideshow at my wedding - I just put the scanned photos into a PowerPoint. The photos still looked great even when displayed on a projector screen. It worked much better than many other programs that are specifically designed to create slideshows If you need an easy way to track and send digital files, this is a fantastic app.
I use this frequently, great app
by Azbridges on 2018/07/04 12:19
Sometimes you want a document to be a pdf, not a JPEG. This app is easy to use, the scanned documents are easy to crop using the touch screen and the quality has been acceptable to everyone I've sent scanned document to. I have only used the free version, and so far (2-3 years), it's all I've needed. I did decide to purchase a fax package within the app for the odd times I've needed to fax. But since that need has been rare, I still have faxes left in the package. Emailing typically dies the trick. If you're looking for a fast, user-friendly way to scan some documents (in batches or single docs), this app just works.
Thank you, gracias, merci!!!

There aren’t enough ways to express my appreciation for this app—seriously! This is the most useful tool in my arsenal and has saved me from having to run home or into my office or to find a public scanner or fax—gasp! Long gone are those old days of panic and “I’ll get it to you as soon as I can.” I don’t recall how I came upon this brilliant app but I have been enjoying it for years and I tell everyone about it, and you should do the same. So much so, that this is the first and only app review I’ve taken the time to write as yet. Bravo, developers! Please keep up the great work on this FREE app. And, again, THANK YOU!!!
Update
by I do not care. on 2018/10/03 16:00
Hello! I love genius scan, butbte last update added some things that make it hard for me to use. When I open a folder, and just want to email 1 page, or a selected amount, it ends up trying to send the entire folder. I used to be able to enlarge or simply send the page that was open, now I have to actually check the chosen page to send from a reduced sized picture of all Pages in the folder. And I can’t figure out how to enlarge them simply email that to make sure I have chosen the correct page. I liked the earlier version better where I could open a file and simply click in the page and it would enlarge and I could email it. I live genius sac but I can’t figure out how to make it work like it used to!! Thank you
Best Scanner Out There
by freelance_auditor on 2019/02/14 18:46
As an auditor this is my most used app on my iPhone. I’ve used this app for a long time and have seen it go through several major improvements over that timeframe. Google Drive integration is by far the most important feature for me. I’ve never had an issue with this app and am constantly referring my clients and fellow auditors to it. The most notable improvement is the continual improvement in speed I’ve seen. The Google Drive feature used to be painfully slow but now it’s very quick. Would be nice to have the folder navigation feature enhanced for quicker navigation.
One of the best apps you can get
by SharkosaurusRex on 2018/02/13 16:22
I’m a forgetful person and I do a lot of freelance work. I used to take pictures of things or write them down on my arm. I’d also have to wait around for people to show up or mail off paperwork that I had signed. Now, if it’s scannable, I just San everything. I have loads of information saved away thanks to this app. And what makes it even better is that I have more sensitive information behind passwords. I can’t stop using or recommending this app. It’s completely changed the way I do paperwork and has made my life so much easier, I could never imagine life without it.
Homebuying is easier!
by CASokolByrne on 2019/06/18 13:41
A lot of paperwork is needed to get a mortgage these days. Many new homebuyers use their smart phones as their computer, and DO NOT have easy access to scanners or fax machines. I’m a Mortgage Loan Officer, and when I discovered Genius Scan last year, it was a game changer! I have recommended this easy-to-use app to HUNDREDS now, and what a difference it’s made to my business! My applicants are able to take pictures of documents, convert them to pdf files with the Genius Scan app, and email them securely to me in an instant. It’s free advertising for you guys, and MUCH LESS TIME AND STRESS for my buyers and I. Woo-hoo!!
Genius Scan is Life!!!
by Lauren (SRS) on 2018/08/28 14:03
I’ve been using Genius Scan for 3 years. It’s literally one of the most used apps on my phone for my business. I admit, I tried to be cheap and use the free version. After a month, I decided I needed to buy the full version to unlock all the awesome features. Ever since, I use the app to send important documents wherever I am! My husband and I operate two group homes for kids and adults with developmental disabilities. We’re licensed by the state and nonprofit, so the paperwork is unimaginable. This app is crucial to my business and I give it 10 stars! Plus the new update makes it official lol. I love it!
Saved history
by cjritz on 2018/09/10 01:13
I started using Genius Scan for work, but quickly realized it could be used to preserve my family history. When larger desktop scanners failed to produce the quality I needed to keep the handwriting, this app (the free version) worked magnificently. My wife scanned my grandmother’s scrapbook of my grandfather’s WWII photos and her handwritten captions. With a little help from photoshop, she was able to reprint the handwriting onto archival paper and place the pictures back with the captions. Without this app, my family would have surely lost the little we had left of my grandmother.
The best if found!
by Amber & Doug on 2018/10/16 06:41
My photos/scannable I do w Genius scan come out looking like o used a scanner rather then exactly like they would have if I were to take a picture of the paper myself! You don’t have to worry about getting the corners exactly asymmetrical bc the app allows you to adjust the sheet & somewhat of an angle! I love it, I am a multiple business owner and this is the only scan app I use! I also have used quite a few faxes set up through the internet & Believe this app suggested I try Genius fax.. I did, also very pleased! Cancelled all other online fax subscriptions & I’m strictly Geniusfied 🙌🏼
A MUST HAVE!
by HuffsnGrunts on 2018/08/29 01:21
This app is great. Scan and email documents w/ease. Can incorporate w/other apps as needed, as well. Example: w/ adobe acrobat I can edit document w/free text, send to genius scan and email. (Prefer genius scan over adobe scan, myself) I’ve used this app to send pdf documents to schools, doctors, billing, for flexible spending recoup, to submit paperwork for new jobs and more. Screenshot, download jpeg, take a pic w/camera and convert to pdf and email directly from app. Simple to use. Functions appropriately. Saves documents. Organizes. Love the new updated format. Has saved me time over and over again.
Excellent app for writers and cpa or business folks
by SexyFelineMachine on 2019/11/07 22:13
I write for a hobby and am studying about finances. Very easy to take snapshots of all my hand written stuff. I lost a bunch of stuff in a flood and was angrier than a hillary supporter last election when I lost who knows how much in it. Can move, edit, rename, and append PDFs which is amazing for the price. Can scan in shop forms easily. Also this annoyed me at first, but the auto crop is not always easy to use. However, you can manually crop it. Something I wish I had know at the start. So do not worry about the perfect picture. Just get A picture.
Business office wherever you go
by Contract manager on 2019/02/25 23:07
All you have to do is hover your phone over a document and it converts it to PDF. No more unreadable, mal-proportioned photos of documents. It is so easy to Genius Scan a letter or receipt at a store, bank, gas station or anywhere. Email it to yourself and keep them all in one folder. At tax time everything is right there in one place. Take the extra step to put the details in the subject matter of your email and you don’t even have to open the email to see what it is. Thank you Genius Scan for making life so much easier.
I have outgrown this app
by Atavachron on 2019/01/06 20:19
Update: I have moved on to another highly rated app for the OCR (optical character recognition) feature that turns a scan into actual ASCII characters that can be cut and pasted elsewhere like word processor apps. Also if I save my scan to cloud storage and can’t remember the exact folder/ name of the file I can search for a keyword in it (like the store where the receipt came from) and find it that way. Genius Scan doesn’t offer on-device OCR, which I require. For a full review of different scanner apps, read the article over at The Wirecutter for other good points to consider. ————- I haven't felt the need to get the paid upgrade. The basic version scans and serves my needs. The ads aren't intrusive. I felt compelled to write a review when I saw someone claiming the free basic app won't scan. Nope. Not true. I scan tons of stuff from receipts to my kid's school work and drawings. I don't know if it's the best scanner app since I didn't bother trying any others. This did the job for me. If you can't get it to work, try taking your finger off the camera lens. 😏
Invaluable for business receipts
by TheresainAK on 2018/04/18 20:46
Genius scan is an essential part of my business record keeping. The magic function (automatically locates the edges of the receipt and chooses the best scan mode) and batch mode make it even better. I love that it automatically backs up my scans to Dropbox (Google drive, OneDrive, box and many other options are also available) so I don't have to worry if it is actually saved. It also makes saving a file exactly where I want it in those services easy, remembering where I last saved a scan.
Easy and convenient.
by 3goodsteps on 2018/09/29 01:31
Update - changes to how my college accepts files to their servers have rendered this app useless for uploading by FTP which has seriously decreased its usefulness for me. It’s easier just to use the scanner on my printer than to scan with this app, email It to myself, and upload via computer. Mostly use to scan exam keys and upload to my exam archive. Works great. The one time I had an issue with the upload the support person was beyond helpful. My only issue is once a year when I need to change the password for my college. Genius Scan won’t let you edit the existing FTP so you have to redo the whole thing. I finally got smart and screen shot the settings.
New version made app worse
by Ofnan on 2018/09/24 19:32
I absolutely loved this app. Was one of my most favorite and used apps. The new version totally change things for the worse. You used to be able to scroll through your documents. Now you have to look at tiny little icons that I can’t even see to select the document. You also were able to email a document immediately after scanning, now you have to go back to the list of documents and select it, which adds an extra unnecessary step. If you try to email something after scanning it will email every other document in that folder which makes no sense. Remember, if it isn’t broken don’t fix it.
I love this app, but wish there were folders
by jenniexfuller on 2019/10/19 18:00
I have the pro version and while I can search my documents, I really wish that I had the ability to organize my files into folders within the app. If the app had that capability (wether with an upgrade or not) as well as the capability to print directly from the app (as opposed to emailing it or uploading it (google drive, Dropbox, etc) first WITHOUT HAVING TO UPGRADE then this app would certainly earn 5 stars! This app is a life saver for any mom. I can snap photos of my children’s work or at school meetings for example. I have a paperless method to keep up with important documents.
Good, not perfect
by lucahimself on 2018/09/23 19:41
It used to be a fantastic app for scanning. After the last update, it is still good, but it's not quite as easy to use. When scanning a multipage document, now you have first to scan it all, with wrong crops and wrong enhancements along the way (such as color instead of bw), and then correct them all at once. The old way, of being able to get the scan right one page at the time, was better I think. It would also be nice to have a simple fast way to choose for each scan the type of all pages (color, bw, etc). All in all though, still a good app.
Awesome for my work
by Hk20161115 on 2018/03/08 23:18
I’ve had this app for years. The first few years I had it, it was very choppy in regards to performance. Sometimes things would scan, sometimes not. Sometimes it would upload to google drive, sometimes it wouldn’t. As they have released updates, it has gotten better and better and better. The magic scan function is AMAZING about 99% of the time. The auto upload to google drive is also amazing!!! Thanks for keeping your app updated and for the support I’ve received with the paid app. GREAT WORK!!!
I use this App a lot
by Nick Tomaras on 2017/07/02 00:23
I work at a Honda dealership where I need to send and receive insurance cards, registrations and drivers licenses. This app makes it super easy to convert the customers photos that they send me on a text message and convert it to a PDF so my work computer will print it out properly. I also use it to take a photo of the Bill of Sale and a MSO, convert it to a PDF then email it to the insurance company. This is a very handy and useful app. I have tried others but I now have Genius Scan on my dock so I can use it quickly. Thank you for making a great app!!!!!
Excellent!
by EstelaMMD on 2017/09/01 17:30
I recently downloaded this app referred to me by a colleague and is great! I use it for my work expenses and reporting when on the go! I just snap a picture of the receipt and email it as a pdf file to the expense reporting system we have and half my work is done! And without the burden of having to keep all those receipts all around, afraid of losing them. Love it! And the best is that it keeps them saved in the app if I need back up (for example, if I lose one). I use it even when I want to spare myself of papers and go digital. Highly recommended!
An essential for teachers who have students with special needs
by Katesydavis on 2019/08/18 00:10
I have a student who is legally blind. This app has made it so easy to make sure she has access to what she needs. For example, our vocab book does not come in digital format. This student needs text at a size 40 font, which isn’t feasible to print, so she needs it in pdf form and then she uses an app to write on the pdf, genius scan makes it so easy and fast to get her what she needs, also the black and white function makes it even easier for my student.
Thank you
by got4freethx on 2019/05/06 12:51
This app worked quick and easy. I am using the free version. It is easy to figure out. I sent my scan to my files on the iPhone. Be aware that it doesn’t work with emails other than gmail. It may depend on your email and make sure that email is in the mail app on your phone. I quit on it once because it didn’t work with my email service. It works well with gmail. I can’t say if I will ever need the features that require purchase. Based on the free app...it is worth paying for the additional features!
AMAZING!!!
by sqj579 on 2019/04/01 14:29
As a very busy physician and entrepreneur I use this app EVERY SINGLE DAY!! Thank you Genius Scan for making my life SO much more organized and simple!! I SCAN EVERYTHING!! insurance cards, Bills, receipts, tax docs, notices, insurance info etc and then have it at the tips of my fingers WHENEVER I need it so I’m never at a loss as to “where did I put that card or document??” or scrambling for something...it’s always either searchable in my email or Genius Scan! ☺️❤️ I DO NOT get any incentive for writing this or info above, but if you do not have this app then you are missing out BIG TIME!!
They took away my favorite feature.
by Steeevv on 2018/01/02 01:01
With Genius Scan I used to be able to save the things that I scanned in my phone’s photo library. Now I have to take a screenshot and crop it with another app. I’ve tried other scanning apps and none of them provide this feature that used to be available in Genius Scan. I’ve gone back to Genius Scan because it shows magnification of the corners for re-cropping in order to make a photo taken at an angle, rectangular. The other scanning apps don’t have that feature.
An invaluable business tool
by Kumarj on 2018/01/17 19:51
I have use this app for a few years and am very pleased with performance. After trying a few other mobile scan apps I have decided to use this exclusively. I also enjoy using the Genius sign add on app. Genius scan is especially good for keeping track of my receipts while on business travel. I regularly scan and save all of my receipts to a single folder in Genius Scan. At the end of my travel I can simply send a copy of that genius scan file to my office for reimbursement.
Very Useful & Easy to Use
by Zelda Andy G on 2017/09/16 23:51
Easy to use, legible scanned documents & fast processing & editing time allowing important information to quickly be made available to digitally store or send to someone else. I have also found this is beneficial for compiling important medical documents for a complex chronic pain & multiple chronic illnesses patient like myself. This app allows me to always have important information on hand in case of an emergency, meeting a new doctor & keeping all doctors in the loop about any new treatments, surgeries & ER/hospitalizations.
Genius Scan is as amazing as it’s must-have-co-tool...
by haffieldj on 2017/12/09 04:23
Genius Scan is by far the best scanning tool you can get. If you’re always on the go whether a businessmen/woman, mom, dad, teacher... If you’re constantly looking around wondering how to scan papers, pictures, documents... then look no further. And if you get it’s partner, Genius Fax, you’ll have all the tools you'll ever need to send, receive, make copies of anything. Best of all, it automatically converts to PDF format to minimize the docs size!!! *** Best tool/s you can have on your iPhone!!!
Even free version is super!
by bibiyarrozito on 2019/05/14 23:20
I almost deleted it when I realized i wasn’t able to connect to my google drive but guess what!? It’s just a sort of non intuitive way they have the hidden feature to USE OTHER apps to still make it free and super useful. I’d recommend playing around with the different features to find what you need. It’s well integrated with google drive and if you make changes it lets you know that the version hasn’t been shared / uploaded! Pretty cool feature for sure! :)
Extremely Worthwhile Business Tool
by BDzerna on 2018/03/13 18:54
This application is arguably the most important one that is on my phone aside from web browsing and email. I can’t tell you the amount of times I have to create PDFs from just an image. I no longer have to worry about fax machines or archival or any other types of storage since I know all my PDFs or now in one place and labeled and searchable as I want them. The integration with Google Drive is also really wonderful and I use it for monthly financials over and over again.
Saved me
by Reunion-here we go on 2018/04/20 19:48
I had to print, sign, scan and email a document immediately to secure a venue for my family reunion or lose the venue. I downloaded five scanning apps. Genius Scan was the only one that worked. The document was successfully sent and received and I am so grateful to Genius Scan. I am not good with electronics but it was easy. Terribly, the other apps interrupted the process with $ add-ons to continue and one app changed to a candy crush game? Thank you for taking customer needs seriously Genius Scan!
Awesome app
by Leer jet on 2019/08/20 11:30
I have been using this app now for over 2yrs I must say it is absolutely genius!! Awesome ability to turn any picture into a perfect pdf, email it, add it to other messaging apps, transfer files over airdrop absolutely awesome! Use it practically everyday. Scan a group of documents and name it as one file to send or save basically anywhere. Pay for only the features you want to use on the app, totally worth it especially for someone with a business on the go like me.
Makes my job so much easier!
by HIPPIEFLIPPIN on 2018/12/13 01:40
I was told about this app over a year ago and finally needed to use it about 3 months ago. It makes my life so much easier! I can scan all the daily paperwork and receipts in a matter of seconds, rename and email straight from the app to my company. My only gripe thus far is that I wish I had more time on this job to figure out all the ins and outs of the app. I have recommended it numerous times since I started using it and get the same response.
An intuitive app that is a useful tool.
by DaiWi75 on 2019/04/02 15:52
I am very pleased with the performance of this app. The app turns your phone into a high quality scanner. Features allow you to turn on and off your camera flash to get the proper lighting for your scan. You may take batch scans and use edit feature allows you to clean up, crop, resize, or delete scans. When your scan looks the way you want GS converts it to pdf and offers many options for sending the scan.
Testing app
by Hghgjuffffh on 2018/01/21 17:45
Got this app so I can have most of my documents on the go and if ever need it can set my phone to a printer via wifi connection ; and print. Using the app is very simple and straightforward no difficulties ,at least for me. When taking the picture to scan your document just take the image and the app will storage as a PDF file. The only reason I'm not giving 5stars is because haven't use the pay version yet. Will update it when got it. Give it a try.
I downloaded a few, this one’s best
by Brookie <333 on 2018/12/13 19:36
I had 4 documents I needed to scan. Downloaded about 3 other scanner apps, every other one kept popping up with a document limit and I had to do some tweaking to get the document to not be cut out. This app did a perfect job and required no tweaking. I received no notice of a limit, and the document literally came back beautifully. Like HD clear. Great export system too. It was far superior to the other apps I tried out. I’m impressed. Thanks
One thing to be better
by sprayker on 2017/08/02 16:44
I love this app! But I just want one thing fixed: the paper auto-sizing feature (the orange block that randomly shows up when scanning). I wish I could turn that off! It often screws up the scan and cuts off the page, making the process a bit frustrating and tricky when scanning many-page docs. Please make this an optional feature in the future! I want a scan of the entire page, not just the ink. Thanks!
Very helpful
by DPG312 on 2017/09/30 13:29
When I first started my own business selling insurance, this came in really handy; I used it to scan in all the completed applications while I was on the road. I would then use Genius Fax to fax them into the company. Now that I no longer selling Sharons, and I am working as a traveling RN, I am constantly filling out paperwork for different travel assignments and also licensing in different states. Once again, genius scan is extremely helpful for this. Definitely recommended
Feature request
by CD20132013 on 2017/08/30 00:23
1. Allow us to send you feedback somewhere else than on the Apple Review site. 2. The app should NOT ask me EVERY TIME whether or not I want to save a scan to a new document or an existing document. If I wanted to scan multiple pages, I would select the "Batch" scan. But when I select "Single" scan, I mean exactly that--a single scan. I don't want to have to say it twice. This unnecessary prompt makes it much slower to scan a stack of individual receipts.
