Description of free has stuff that only available in paid app

Awesome scanning app!
by Angelfacesexy on 2020/08/07 15:14
My scanner at home went kaput. Needed something fast so I can continue to work. Downloaded this and it’s stupid easy to use. The free version is just what I needed. Thanks for making a free version!!! I bet the paid version is even better-probably worth the money if you need the extras. I don’t but if that changes I’ll buy it!

Awesome to send documents pdf
by Staceeiy on 2020/07/31 15:12
Love this app! It turns photos into pdf documents. Let it snap the photo for you to get the best image. Awesome for students and professionals to sign physical documents and send them that don’t always have a scanner available. I wish I could alter the contrast and makes things darker sometimes but that is only due to quality of document scanned, not the app.
Love
by 44igz44 on 2020/07/31 13:01
Every since I started working from home I wasn't sure how I was going to scan my docs. This app is really user friendly and it really looks like the docs are “scanned” I recommend you getting if you are looking for an easy way to scan at home.

An App That Will Consistently Come In Handy
by Melia_Vixen on 2020/07/27 08:37
There are currently multiple scanning apps available on the market. However, this app in specific, is one of the easiest to use, produces quality scans and has a few editing features that are very useful and help to create a tailored, high quality scan. If you desire more features, such as: access to more editing tools, increased exporting options, a variety of storage/upload features, etc. One must pay, for one of the two upgraded version, that are available to you. Overall, I would highly recommend this app, for all your on-the-go document scanning needs!
Amazing app

Almost perfect
by amashoppo on 2020/07/23 05:59
This scanner works great and I love the fact that it auto-saves to iCloud Drive. However, the position of the scan button (plus button) on the left side is extremely annoying and inconsistent with all my other apps. I’d prefer it be on the right side (or even middle) like most other apps.
Love it

by LasVegasGuy2007 on 2020/07/18 14:58
This app is very useful if you want to turn paper into digital documents and get rid of clutter. It’s also useful if you have to sign papers and email them to someone for business reasons. I would recommend this app to anyone. Not only can you scan and turn the scanned document into a PDF format, you can also edit the images and scale them to your liking, make them black & white only or you may leave them in the colored version. You can also email the documents among other options. Overall just a great app. I’m using it to make backups of my documents, sales orders, and receipts.
Iiteralky used it for two seconds
by LeLindaBee on 2020/07/18 03:53
Have not even used it yet really? Two seconds and it asked me to rate it. I don’t know. Looks pretty straightforward so far.
Love it! I use it daily.
by RN05 on 2020/07/17 22:18
Never manually scan a document again! I use it for work daily, and it is awesome. Highly recommend! It’s worth the (+) fee too if you will use it regularly.

by shrekjunkie on 2020/07/16 12:59
I needed to scan a large document. All I had to do was place my phone over the stack, ouch a + button and the scanner took a picture and it waits a few seconds to allow time for you to go to next page and then it take another pic and so on. The second button you push is DONE. The. It allows you to email directly from the app at the finish of your scan so have your email address ready. Then you can find your PDF in the app.

I Downloaded this on recommendation from co-workers. I work in the field in construction and scan forms immediately from the field and send them directly to my/others email. The app works great with little to no set up. The camera does work better/faster with a dark background. Scans are high quality and legible.

It’s wonderful to have a scanner on your phone sometimes you can’t make it to a copy shop but with Genuis scan you have one at your fingertips.
Best Scan app around!!

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.
Avid User Review
by Clermontsrose on 2019/12/09 17:00
I have now been using Genius Scan & Genius Fax for about 5 months now and I wholeheartedly can recommend both apps. It’s so convenient and simple to set-up, plus many of the most commonly used features can be programmed and then saved. No more flying out the door to take a fax to Staples and be overcharged for it, or you may find your to late and their closed. All those scenarios are the worst and Genius Scan &. Genius fax put an end to all that and more. Don’t be intimidated to try them, I guarantee you’ll be hooked for sure. The reason I subtracted one star is do to their response time. I had a situation that I was having an upload issue and needed to send a fax immediately, but when I contacted the customer support it only offered help via email and their response time was listed as 2 - 3 days. As you would imagine I was fit to be tied and the only FAQ listed for it was a WiFi suggestion that I had already been using, very frustrating to say the least. That only happened once though compared to all the multiple successful times. Your gonna love it, I use the app from my iPhone, so I have access anytime and anywhere it’s truly the best I’ve tried.
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! 🤙🏼😂*
Easy to use, and so useful!
by KennySteven on 2020/04/17 06:26
I’ve been using Genius Scan for several years to quickly scan documents and file them away on Dropbox or OneDrive. I know those services have their own apps that do document scanning, but they’re clunkier and don’t have the breadth of features that Genius Scan does. It’s one app that makes quick work of scanning, cropping and adjusting, and filing away as a PDF or JPEG. But don’t take my word for it - take the word of my dad, who is 81 years old and regularly complains about technology being hard to use. He wanted to scan in a paper form and get it to his computer, so I texted him a link to Genius Scan along with an offer to call and walk him through it. He didn’t call me but a little while later emailed to say: “I made the PDFs with my phone and emailed it to my computer and printed out copies. The app worked great.” Now that’s high praise!
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 HDH-J mama on 2020/06/29 03:47
This is a great little app. I had it on my phone for little incidentals for which I'd used it here and there over the years. Usually for when I needed to sign and scan a document to send. Then I started a project of scanning 20 years worth of hand written journals. I researched scanners, I went to the local library to use their high powered book scanner, I evaluated renting one, finally I tried genius scan to scan the journals with my phone and the more I used it the more features I found and the more I liked it. It has an awesome crop feature that actually helps even out the bump from the binding, it does colored scans or black and white, and I can export the scans directly to a specific folder on my Google drive, with the file name of my choosing. It's a great little app that is way more powerful than it at first seems.
a GENIUS idea! 😉
by Cookiegirl222 on 2020/03/25 19:58
I would recommend this app. This is a great scanner. Really helps me with my homework and assignments! The only downside of this app is when you scan a paper, you get only a few seconds to press edit. Sometimes, I need a few seconds before I press the edit button. I can still edit it after, but it is harder. My suggestion, is make the edit button available right away after the scan, and let people edit whenever they need to, then they can continue when they need to do so. This app really is a great thing during our COVID-19 outbreak. I, for one, think this is a great way to send my teachers my work. My whole grade loves it!! We were taking pictures of our work, but it got too blurry. That is when we resulted in using Genius Scan. A thank you comes from me and my peers.

This is a perfect scanning machine!! It really is quite amazing how utilizing the same camera mechanism incorporated within your cell phone, albeit with a more precise set of programming terms, one may exponderate a fan flumming tas~tick Pix!! Or rather, a scan of a document, as it were. A pix that fills your screen from quite a distance back, as long as focused properly, will result in a full size complete page with color pictures, PERFECTLY! Update~Update~Update It just keeps getting better, It's getting better all the time ‼ Now you can perform batch scans quickly and decisively. Dances with Panties. 🐰🌀🐰🍀 New update. New IPhone X Keeps getting better all the time The people over at Grisley labs are terrific and wonderful DagNabbitRabbit Approved 🐰 Update~Update~Update Yet another fantastic update. DagNabbitRabbit🐰IphoneXS MAX Sprint Genius Scan I am happy to say has come with me as I upgrade to yet another iPhone upgrade, Flawlessly.

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!
Amazing Scanner app!
by D_egoo on 2020/06/24 18:56
It is the first scanner app where not only could I add multiple pdf files into one, but also add images from my phone to then convert into one single pdf file. Other scanner apps supposedly are able to do the same but they charge extra for those features. Just for curiosity I actually bought the feature of combing multiple pdf files into one for one of those Scanner Apps, and it failed big time, so it is very generous for this app to provide that feature for free. Finally, the quality of the scans are great, they do appear clearer once you take them than when they’re sent out but it is possible that maybe I’m just not placing my documents correctly as the picture is being taken.
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.
Simple and functional
by SuzieFrogASL on 2020/03/25 15:57
I’ve had this app for several years now, and it only keeps getting better. It now has options and features that were not available several years ago. I do contract work and this app literally saves my life. Without it, I would have pulled my hair out long ago. Pictures are easy to take and are clear and automatically cropped. There are several editing/filter/cropping options available. It cleans up documents like I’ve never been able to do before, at least not without a ton of education and experience with photoshop, and a lot of TIME. THIS IS SO QUICK. Thank you so much for working hard to make this app great and to continue making it even greater. 🤟❤️🤙🏼
Best scanner app on the App Store.
by Aj27432 on 2020/02/15 05:51
In high school, many of my teachers required that written work be submitted online, requiring us to go to the library outside of class time. Additionally, when I was apply to scholarships and colleges my senior year, I had a plethora of papers, forms, and applications, all of which had to be somehow scanned at turned it online. Before I downloaded genius scan, I was wasting ample time and effort. After downloading it, however, work became much more convenient and much less frustrating. I am now in college, and this app still works perfectly. I highly recommend genius scan to anyone who is currently on the market for a scanner app. If you like free and functional, this app is for you.
I don’t ever buy apps
by No Cache Limit on 2020/01/15 00:15
I must say I never buy apps, but this is worth every penny! Mine auto exports to google drive, I can even search for text On google drive from my PC or any device and find receipts! Well done developers! Request: when adding a receipt it gratefully shows all the recent Tags / stores that I use so I don’t have to type them again. However the stores I use the most, are the ones I used right when I installed this app, and they are ALL the way to the right. I have to scroll all the way over to get to most commonly used Tag. Actually quicker to retype Tag. Could you please enhance Genius Scan so Tags are automatically sorted by most recently used? Thanks so much!
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.
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.
Amazing and amazingly powerful.
by jcmarkhus on 2020/02/16 23:33
This is an amazingly powerful and extremely useful app. You can scan a document from pretty much any angle and it will automatically sense the edges and square it up so it looks like you are facing it straight on and scanned it from a flatbed scanner. It works amazing for just about any type of archiving that you would need to perform. Also provides good high-quality snaps of photos that you like to save. There is also a companion app called Genius Fax, which allows you to send faxes from your phone without having to have a fax number. Again this app is one of the highest quality that I have found in its class. I highly recommend it.
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.
A long overdue 5+ star review
by juj1n on 2020/05/22 14:56
I’ve been using this app since (at least) 2013 and I just recently bought the paid version which is long overdue. This is one of a few apps which I’ve never deleted off my phone since downloading. The other apps came on my phone from Apple so I can’t delete them anyway. This app is incredibly useful and in my experience flawless in its function. All documents are readable and none can tell it was done on a phone. The auto crop and flash features are outstanding. This is a great app and I’d like to thank the team for giving us such a quality product that has only improved over time.
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.
Very useful app
by LasVegasGuy2007 on 2020/07/18 14:58
This app is very useful if you want to turn paper into digital documents and get rid of clutter. It’s also useful if you have to sign papers and email them to someone for business reasons. I would recommend this app to anyone. Not only can you scan and turn the scanned document into a PDF format, you can also edit the images and scale them to your liking, make them black & white only or you may leave them in the colored version. You can also email the documents among other options. Overall just a great app. I’m using it to make backups of my documents, sales orders, and receipts.
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
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!!!
Invaluable App in a digital and paper world
by My phone is trying to kill me on 2019/11/23 17:47
I stumbled upon this application when looking for a fax solution. The fax application/service is great for anyone who DOES NOT WANT a fax machine and still deals with offices using decades old tech to send information. Now THIS application has become absolutely invaluable to me. I often need to send forms to multiple people for signatures while out and about, and the scan and email function is so easy and efficient, I started using it even when in the office with an old school scanner around. The folks putting these applications together are the geniuses behind the name for sure.
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.
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!
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!!
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.
An App That Will Consistently Come In Handy
by Melia_Vixen on 2020/07/27 08:37
There are currently multiple scanning apps available on the market. However, this app in specific, is one of the easiest to use, produces quality scans and has a few editing features that are very useful and help to create a tailored, high quality scan. If you desire more features, such as: access to more editing tools, increased exporting options, a variety of storage/upload features, etc. One must pay, for one of the two upgraded version, that are available to you. Overall, I would highly recommend this app, for all your on-the-go document scanning needs!
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.
Subscription required now.
by slickhuey23 on 2020/03/11 17:02
I paid for this app forever ago with a one time price and loved and used it very much for work and personal. I recently had a need to use it and found out the iCloud feature has been removed and the app wants me to pay a monthly subscription to sync to my own data cloud that I already pay for from google. Its a tool app, and should never have a subscription. Why would I pay monthly for a tool? Especially if I already purchased it. Id ask for a refund but I know that wont happen. Its too bad, it was a good app too.
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. 😏
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.
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!!!
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.
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!!!!!
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.
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.
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!!

Description of free has stuff that only available in paid app

Downloaded for ocr but that’s not available in free version, yet is listed as a capability in free app description. Misleading.

Awesome scanning app!
by Angelfacesexy on 2020/08/07 15:14
My scanner at home went kaput. Needed something fast so I can continue to work. Downloaded this and it’s stupid easy to use. The free version is just what I needed. Thanks for making a free version!!! I bet the paid version is even better-probably worth the money if you need the extras. I don’t but if that changes I’ll buy it!

Awesome to send documents pdf
by Staceeiy on 2020/07/31 15:12
Love this app! It turns photos into pdf documents. Let it snap the photo for you to get the best image. Awesome for students and professionals to sign physical documents and send them that don’t always have a scanner available. I wish I could alter the contrast and makes things darker sometimes but that is only due to quality of document scanned, not the app.
Love
by 44igz44 on 2020/07/31 13:01
Every since I started working from home I wasn't sure how I was going to scan my docs. This app is really user friendly and it really looks like the docs are “scanned” I recommend you getting if you are looking for an easy way to scan at home.

An App That Will Consistently Come In Handy
by Melia_Vixen on 2020/07/27 08:37
There are currently multiple scanning apps available on the market. However, this app in specific, is one of the easiest to use, produces quality scans and has a few editing features that are very useful and help to create a tailored, high quality scan. If you desire more features, such as: access to more editing tools, increased exporting options, a variety of storage/upload features, etc. One must pay, for one of the two upgraded version, that are available to you. Overall, I would highly recommend this app, for all your on-the-go document scanning needs!
Amazing app
by JustinSummerChilde on 2020/07/26 01:28

Almost perfect
by amashoppo on 2020/07/23 05:59
This scanner works great and I love the fact that it auto-saves to iCloud Drive. However, the position of the scan button (plus button) on the left side is extremely annoying and inconsistent with all my other apps. I’d prefer it be on the right side (or even middle) like most other apps.
Love it

But not Genius I love, love, love this app. I use it all the time the quality is amazing and sooooo easy to use!!! It comes in handy for so much. Definitely recommend!!

by LasVegasGuy2007 on 2020/07/18 14:58
This app is very useful if you want to turn paper into digital documents and get rid of clutter. It’s also useful if you have to sign papers and email them to someone for business reasons. I would recommend this app to anyone. Not only can you scan and turn the scanned document into a PDF format, you can also edit the images and scale them to your liking, make them black & white only or you may leave them in the colored version. You can also email the documents among other options. Overall just a great app. I’m using it to make backups of my documents, sales orders, and receipts.
Iiteralky used it for two seconds
by LeLindaBee on 2020/07/18 03:53
Have not even used it yet really? Two seconds and it asked me to rate it. I don’t know. Looks pretty straightforward so far.
Love it! I use it daily.
by RN05 on 2020/07/17 22:18
Never manually scan a document again! I use it for work daily, and it is awesome. Highly recommend! It’s worth the (+) fee too if you will use it regularly.

by shrekjunkie on 2020/07/16 12:59
I needed to scan a large document. All I had to do was place my phone over the stack, ouch a + button and the scanner took a picture and it waits a few seconds to allow time for you to go to next page and then it take another pic and so on. The second button you push is DONE. The. It allows you to email directly from the app at the finish of your scan so have your email address ready. Then you can find your PDF in the app.

I Downloaded this on recommendation from co-workers. I work in the field in construction and scan forms immediately from the field and send them directly to my/others email. The app works great with little to no set up. The camera does work better/faster with a dark background. Scans are high quality and legible.

It’s wonderful to have a scanner on your phone sometimes you can’t make it to a copy shop but with Genuis scan you have one at your fingertips.
Best Scan app around!!

This app is user friendly and I love that it saves my scans to my google drive too! This saves me so much time especially when you frequently having to send certain docs to different people. Brilliant App I just love it !!
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.
Avid User Review
by Clermontsrose on 2019/12/09 17:00
I have now been using Genius Scan & Genius Fax for about 5 months now and I wholeheartedly can recommend both apps. It’s so convenient and simple to set-up, plus many of the most commonly used features can be programmed and then saved. No more flying out the door to take a fax to Staples and be overcharged for it, or you may find your to late and their closed. All those scenarios are the worst and Genius Scan &. Genius fax put an end to all that and more. Don’t be intimidated to try them, I guarantee you’ll be hooked for sure. The reason I subtracted one star is do to their response time. I had a situation that I was having an upload issue and needed to send a fax immediately, but when I contacted the customer support it only offered help via email and their response time was listed as 2 - 3 days. As you would imagine I was fit to be tied and the only FAQ listed for it was a WiFi suggestion that I had already been using, very frustrating to say the least. That only happened once though compared to all the multiple successful times. Your gonna love it, I use the app from my iPhone, so I have access anytime and anywhere it’s truly the best I’ve tried.
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! 🤙🏼😂*
Easy to use, and so useful!
by KennySteven on 2020/04/17 06:26
I’ve been using Genius Scan for several years to quickly scan documents and file them away on Dropbox or OneDrive. I know those services have their own apps that do document scanning, but they’re clunkier and don’t have the breadth of features that Genius Scan does. It’s one app that makes quick work of scanning, cropping and adjusting, and filing away as a PDF or JPEG. But don’t take my word for it - take the word of my dad, who is 81 years old and regularly complains about technology being hard to use. He wanted to scan in a paper form and get it to his computer, so I texted him a link to Genius Scan along with an offer to call and walk him through it. He didn’t call me but a little while later emailed to say: “I made the PDFs with my phone and emailed it to my computer and printed out copies. The app worked great.” Now that’s high praise!
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 HDH-J mama on 2020/06/29 03:47
This is a great little app. I had it on my phone for little incidentals for which I'd used it here and there over the years. Usually for when I needed to sign and scan a document to send. Then I started a project of scanning 20 years worth of hand written journals. I researched scanners, I went to the local library to use their high powered book scanner, I evaluated renting one, finally I tried genius scan to scan the journals with my phone and the more I used it the more features I found and the more I liked it. It has an awesome crop feature that actually helps even out the bump from the binding, it does colored scans or black and white, and I can export the scans directly to a specific folder on my Google drive, with the file name of my choosing. It's a great little app that is way more powerful than it at first seems.
a GENIUS idea! 😉
by Cookiegirl222 on 2020/03/25 19:58
I would recommend this app. This is a great scanner. Really helps me with my homework and assignments! The only downside of this app is when you scan a paper, you get only a few seconds to press edit. Sometimes, I need a few seconds before I press the edit button. I can still edit it after, but it is harder. My suggestion, is make the edit button available right away after the scan, and let people edit whenever they need to, then they can continue when they need to do so. This app really is a great thing during our COVID-19 outbreak. I, for one, think this is a great way to send my teachers my work. My whole grade loves it!! We were taking pictures of our work, but it got too blurry. That is when we resulted in using Genius Scan. A thank you comes from me and my peers.

This is a perfect scanning machine!! It really is quite amazing how utilizing the same camera mechanism incorporated within your cell phone, albeit with a more precise set of programming terms, one may exponderate a fan flumming tas~tick Pix!! Or rather, a scan of a document, as it were. A pix that fills your screen from quite a distance back, as long as focused properly, will result in a full size complete page with color pictures, PERFECTLY! Update~Update~Update It just keeps getting better, It's getting better all the time ‼ Now you can perform batch scans quickly and decisively. Dances with Panties. 🐰🌀🐰🍀 New update. New IPhone X Keeps getting better all the time The people over at Grisley labs are terrific and wonderful DagNabbitRabbit Approved 🐰 Update~Update~Update Yet another fantastic update. DagNabbitRabbit🐰IphoneXS MAX Sprint Genius Scan I am happy to say has come with me as I upgrade to yet another iPhone upgrade, Flawlessly.

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!
Amazing Scanner app!
by D_egoo on 2020/06/24 18:56
It is the first scanner app where not only could I add multiple pdf files into one, but also add images from my phone to then convert into one single pdf file. Other scanner apps supposedly are able to do the same but they charge extra for those features. Just for curiosity I actually bought the feature of combing multiple pdf files into one for one of those Scanner Apps, and it failed big time, so it is very generous for this app to provide that feature for free. Finally, the quality of the scans are great, they do appear clearer once you take them than when they’re sent out but it is possible that maybe I’m just not placing my documents correctly as the picture is being taken.
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.
Simple and functional
by SuzieFrogASL on 2020/03/25 15:57
I’ve had this app for several years now, and it only keeps getting better. It now has options and features that were not available several years ago. I do contract work and this app literally saves my life. Without it, I would have pulled my hair out long ago. Pictures are easy to take and are clear and automatically cropped. There are several editing/filter/cropping options available. It cleans up documents like I’ve never been able to do before, at least not without a ton of education and experience with photoshop, and a lot of TIME. THIS IS SO QUICK. Thank you so much for working hard to make this app great and to continue making it even greater. 🤟❤️🤙🏼
Best scanner app on the App Store.
by Aj27432 on 2020/02/15 05:51
In high school, many of my teachers required that written work be submitted online, requiring us to go to the library outside of class time. Additionally, when I was apply to scholarships and colleges my senior year, I had a plethora of papers, forms, and applications, all of which had to be somehow scanned at turned it online. Before I downloaded genius scan, I was wasting ample time and effort. After downloading it, however, work became much more convenient and much less frustrating. I am now in college, and this app still works perfectly. I highly recommend genius scan to anyone who is currently on the market for a scanner app. If you like free and functional, this app is for you.
I don’t ever buy apps
by No Cache Limit on 2020/01/15 00:15
I must say I never buy apps, but this is worth every penny! Mine auto exports to google drive, I can even search for text On google drive from my PC or any device and find receipts! Well done developers! Request: when adding a receipt it gratefully shows all the recent Tags / stores that I use so I don’t have to type them again. However the stores I use the most, are the ones I used right when I installed this app, and they are ALL the way to the right. I have to scroll all the way over to get to most commonly used Tag. Actually quicker to retype Tag. Could you please enhance Genius Scan so Tags are automatically sorted by most recently used? Thanks so much!
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.
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.
Amazing and amazingly powerful.
by jcmarkhus on 2020/02/16 23:33
This is an amazingly powerful and extremely useful app. You can scan a document from pretty much any angle and it will automatically sense the edges and square it up so it looks like you are facing it straight on and scanned it from a flatbed scanner. It works amazing for just about any type of archiving that you would need to perform. Also provides good high-quality snaps of photos that you like to save. There is also a companion app called Genius Fax, which allows you to send faxes from your phone without having to have a fax number. Again this app is one of the highest quality that I have found in its class. I highly recommend it.
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.
A long overdue 5+ star review
by juj1n on 2020/05/22 14:56
I’ve been using this app since (at least) 2013 and I just recently bought the paid version which is long overdue. This is one of a few apps which I’ve never deleted off my phone since downloading. The other apps came on my phone from Apple so I can’t delete them anyway. This app is incredibly useful and in my experience flawless in its function. All documents are readable and none can tell it was done on a phone. The auto crop and flash features are outstanding. This is a great app and I’d like to thank the team for giving us such a quality product that has only improved over time.
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.
Very useful app
by LasVegasGuy2007 on 2020/07/18 14:58
This app is very useful if you want to turn paper into digital documents and get rid of clutter. It’s also useful if you have to sign papers and email them to someone for business reasons. I would recommend this app to anyone. Not only can you scan and turn the scanned document into a PDF format, you can also edit the images and scale them to your liking, make them black & white only or you may leave them in the colored version. You can also email the documents among other options. Overall just a great app. I’m using it to make backups of my documents, sales orders, and receipts.
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
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!!!
Invaluable App in a digital and paper world
by My phone is trying to kill me on 2019/11/23 17:47
I stumbled upon this application when looking for a fax solution. The fax application/service is great for anyone who DOES NOT WANT a fax machine and still deals with offices using decades old tech to send information. Now THIS application has become absolutely invaluable to me. I often need to send forms to multiple people for signatures while out and about, and the scan and email function is so easy and efficient, I started using it even when in the office with an old school scanner around. The folks putting these applications together are the geniuses behind the name for sure.
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.
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!
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!!
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.
An App That Will Consistently Come In Handy
by Melia_Vixen on 2020/07/27 08:37
There are currently multiple scanning apps available on the market. However, this app in specific, is one of the easiest to use, produces quality scans and has a few editing features that are very useful and help to create a tailored, high quality scan. If you desire more features, such as: access to more editing tools, increased exporting options, a variety of storage/upload features, etc. One must pay, for one of the two upgraded version, that are available to you. Overall, I would highly recommend this app, for all your on-the-go document scanning needs!
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.
Subscription required now.
by slickhuey23 on 2020/03/11 17:02
I paid for this app forever ago with a one time price and loved and used it very much for work and personal. I recently had a need to use it and found out the iCloud feature has been removed and the app wants me to pay a monthly subscription to sync to my own data cloud that I already pay for from google. Its a tool app, and should never have a subscription. Why would I pay monthly for a tool? Especially if I already purchased it. Id ask for a refund but I know that wont happen. Its too bad, it was a good app too.
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. 😏
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.
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!!!
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.
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!!!!!
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.
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.
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!!
