Easy to use and great clarity. I use it weekly at least.
This app rocks - Especially during Covid

That's about it. It's super simple to use. It serves just what you need from the functionality standpoint and I highly recommend it.

by alexyovanoff on 2020/11/19 23:06
When trying to crop the scanned images on iPhone 12 mini, the circle that shows up to help guide where to place the crop is blacked out! Makes it unusable!
Easy Peasy
by Joulesanne on 2020/11/19 19:36
This app is so easy to use to scan something and send via email or save to a file. I have Evernote and saving directly to my account AND to a specific notebook couldn’t be easier. I only pull out the big desktop scanner if I have large, multiple page documents to scan.
The best way to scan and send

I love how this app brightens and centers your documents. Easy and effective.
One of my favorite apps

I use scannable for many things, such as scanning important documents to saving recipes in Evernote. It is easy to use and does a great job of straightening and cropping.

by DLG52 on 2020/11/16 21:04
I used to be able to save scans to files. But with a scan I end up at a dead end with my files but no buttons to save.
Used to be good
by LoveHeart❤️ on 2020/11/16 14:18
Used to like this app, but hate that it sometimes glitches and focuses only on one part of the paper, so the other part ends up being blurry. Tried everything-turning and twisting my phone, restarting the app, to no avail. Why can’t I click on my screen to focus??? Also why do all my scans delete everyone I update the app?? Absolutely ridiculous.
Slower now

Unable to adjust camera settings for scanning docs. Slower now, seems to spin a lot.

Missing Ability to Save
by midwest roamer on 2020/11/02 21:47
Ability to save a pdf file to the cloud is now inoperable. You can browse the file structure and edit the file name but you are trapped there. No way to save or go back. Only option to to kill the app and start again. Work around is to email to yourself and they save attachment to a directory. FRUSTRATING Even the fact that this review is white text on white background demonstrates the app is incomplete.

The App Is Absolutely Horrible After the Latest Upgrade
by AlwaystheAnalyst on 2020/10/22 01:16
was going to save and print. I tried to find a number to find out how to recover the files before it was too late and there is no number to be found and the technical support maze asks be for data that I don’t understand. Customer short should be available by phone or at least via email or text and I shouldn’t have to create some type of data Log to duplicate something I don’t understand. If I knew what happened I may be able to fix it myself.

Goodbye scanners and fax machines
by Forest White on 2017/11/02 17:33
Love this app. Use it a few times a week to "scan" my documents, receipts, book excerpts - whatever I want to keep as a digital file. Then I "share" to my Google Drive to store in the cloud, "share" to iBooks or GoodReader to have on my phone, "share" to CudaSign if I need to sign it first, and/or "send" as an email attachment, and I love that I can do all of the above. It would be nice to be able to select all the options you want to do from one screen, rather than go back and select a new option each time. It does sometimes (rarely) crash, but I have never lost any images. I like that it keeps copies of prior scans in case I need to go back. The cropping is pretty good, especially if you put a dark background behind what you are scanning. I like the "enhance" feature to optimize the printed text, and the ability to toggle easily between the enhanced version and the original. The quick toggle between PDF and image is also great. One minor annoyance is that, for some reason, the app will occasionally show the tutorial even when I haven't updated it and have been using it for months. All in all, a must-have app for me. I used to carry around docs, waiting for a time I was near a scanner or fax. Now, combined with cloud storage, a signing app like CudaSign, and email, it has allowed me to recycle paperwork immediately and free myself from clutter, scanners, and fax machines. Why do companies even use fax machines anymore?
A Must Have for College Students
by Belaphabet on 2019/04/27 06:51
Scannable is maybe my most used app ever. I’ve used it every single night for the past year, scanning homework assignments. No professor wants physical papers anymore, it’s all about uploading scans. I’ve had classes where people get no credit on assignments because their scans were poor. Not me. Scannable is super easy to make sure your papers are crisp and readable. It automatically takes the picture but lets you adjust the edges afterwards??? And not just edge by edge, you can move each individual corner so you get the best view of your page. I have literally never seen another app that lets you do that. I normally email them to myself so I can submit on my computer but that is an easy built in function. I know this review sounds like a marketing campaign but I was just talking with a friend about how idk what I’d do without Scannable. It’s WILD that this is free to use with no ads????? Like the reason I am back on the app store to write this is bc I was sure I must have paid for it at some point but NOPE. Every college students dream app tbh
Great product, but still some problems
by pleaseallownicknamegenerator on 2019/07/05 04:48
I honestly like this scanning app a lot; the scans are super fast, the auto detected borders are fairly accurate, and the end product is a great balance between quality and file size. That said, there are some problems I’d like to see fixed. I use this app predominantly for scanning books for research, but the app gets overwhelmed and is liable to crash the larger the file size gets. I’ve lost so many scanned books this way. It also stops being able to detect borders as the scanning continues. A simple fix could be to automatically save after a certain number of pages and start a new file. Also, having an adjustable colored border option would remove the need to auto detect borders every time a page is turned; the user would just need to fit the text within the confines of border (as a bonus, it would cut out any background - including fingers - that would fall within that frame). I’d like to see more options for adjusting size and quality as well. All that aside, Scannable is still one of the best scanning apps I’ve found so far, and having these few added improvements (even as a paid add-on) would make it ideal.
Scan is good but post scan is confusing and weird.
by Tim Brook on 2019/08/02 01:45
Scan quality is good. Big issue is that when we have to forward or send the document it takes default previous document name. Who designs such a way! Second if I have to access the recent document there could be simple way to do so from camera scan screen but only thing one can do is to select and delete option. Really? No way to access through app? Evernote is the parent company and they are living with such flawed features. I mean when sending someone any scanned doc. It default select all the history document and default previous doc name. Really pls fix it otherwise I would go for scanbot app. I know that won’t bother you guys to lose one user and apple wouldn’t show my review to the world. But I wish this app could have better posts an design features and weird default all select and name from previous document. Rather put name like scan001 and so on. At least when we forget it won’t go with some weird previous doc name in emails etc. or give a prompt to change the name with highlight. Definitely remove all the default select. You know why because in case I sent default all selected scan in email and reach to someone then can be security issue. I would neither anyone would prefer that!
Magical App
by kkarin on 2019/07/05 19:47
This really is magic to use. I've used many of the other scanning apps in the App Store and all are so much more difficult to use than this one. I love how it takes the scans without even pressing a button and I also like the option to do things manually. I send everything to Evernote and the integration is so simple. The only thing I wish for is the ability to do my own color correction. Sometimes the app corrects colors on pieces of artwork like it was a text document and that doesn't work for all things. Also, I would like to add tags to the documents before I send them to Evernote. I wrote this review a long time ago and still love the app. I love how automatic it is, but sometimes wish there were more manual options especially when I am scanning something with very light text and I’d like it to be more legible or a photo with glare. There are other scanning apps that can do that and it would be nice if this one could too. Despite that, for most purposes, this is my go to scanning program.
The Must-Have Student Scanner
by Anxious&Obsessed on 2020/05/13 18:36
As a student, and especially during remote learning, I find Scannable to be exactly what I need. It works well and efficiently and allows me to give my teachers PDFs made of multiple pages instead of taking a picture of every page. This is the ONLY scanning app I have found on the Store that is able to recognize spiral bound pages. Microsoft Lens, Genius Scan, and others simply cannot ‘find’ the page. As long as there is nothing in the background, Scannable can. I also love the integration with Evernote and the ability to organize scans so easily. I can go back in my many notebooks and find whatever I’m looking for. Not to mention, you can import Scannable documents from Evernote directly into Google Classroom! What a life saver. I will ask, however, that the Google Classroom integration be fixed a bit. There is an option to export documents to the app but it is extremely buggy and rarely works. Usually, I have to save the document to my Files from within Evernote and then submit it to Classroom manually. If you could fix up this feature, I’d give 5 stars in a heartbeat!
Overall better than what is out there.
by Ferguncio Reyes on 2017/05/10 01:37
If you're a die-hard Evernote user, Scannable may be the best option for you...assuming you use an iOS device, that is. Scannable on the iPhone and iPad allows you to instantly scan business cards, sketches, receipts, paper documents, and even multi-page documents with ease, and automatically file and organize the resulting images and files in your Evernote account. Your scans are automatically cropped to remove backgrounds (like the table behind the reciept, for example) and enhanced so the text is readable. If you scan a business card, the contact information from the card is automatically lifted and added to a contact card, so you can call the person, email them, or visit their website or social presence with a single tap. It's relatively new, and while it works best with Evernote, it also allows you to share your resulting scan with other apps on your iOS device, so you can upload it to Dropbox, email it, or save it to your camera roll. Best of all, it's completely and totally free—no unlocks, no premium version, although it definitely works best if you also use Evernote.
Changed my life!
by TThibs on 2018/08/23 13:34
I love sharing this app with anyone that will listen! I have saved medical forms, school forms, flyers, schoolwork, kids artwork (excellent for this because it scans just the artwork!), birthday invitations, any form that I may need to easily access, and even yard sale items (it “scans” the item in so that there is no busy background - I do put item against a solid background to help with scanning). It scans in pdf or pictures. Paired with Evernote, this has made putting my hands on “that paper” so much easier! I have used it for everything. My husband and I were closing on a piece of land and the seller needed another signature from his partner and instead of having to wait, I scanned it in quickly from my phone and forwarded for the seller and within minutes, we had the form back and could finish the closing! Love, love, love this app! And I NEVER take the time to write reviews, but again, I share this one with everyone.

I’ve used all the scanning apps and for clarity this is the best. For ease-of-use this is the best. To make this app better it would be nice if you could save directly to your OneDrive or iCloud. I paid the fee for Evernote and Scannable for a year I thought it would open the ability to save to OneDrive, but this is the drawback that I found. I’d like to be able to scan & save directly to one of my cloud services. I usually email it to myself and then Open the PDF with adobe then save it to one of my drives. It would be nice if I didn’t have to do that. However, it’s still the best scanning app out there and I continue to use the free Scannable app. I liked being able to save documents in my Scannable app for more than 30 days, (which when you pay the monthly service fee, you can). However, if I could save it directly to my OneDrive I wouldn’t need to save it in my Scannable app. Add this one thing & I’m a paying customer again. If this is not important for you I highly recommend this app.
Use it many times each day - a must have tool
by MK Seattle on 2019/06/26 01:14
I am required to submit completed and signed work orders to my employer after each job is completed. The app allows me to sit in my car, place the completed forms on my car seat, take a snapshot of each page, title the PDF form with the work order number and the client’s name, hit send and “whoosh”...it is sent via email, or to the fax number designated by my employer. And a few minutes later I receive an email receipt stating that the tax has been received by the specific fax number for the department I had sent it to. The app also can send PDF files directly to an email address as well. This app allowed me submit my daily work results in real time rather than waiting till I arrived home and copied each page to a thumb drive and then transferring the PDF’s onto emails. A great tool for all of us who work in the field each day in our “mobile office”.
Needs an update!
by Better than any journal on 2018/12/05 22:45
I’ve been using scannable for a couple of years now and have had no complaints. I use an iPad Pro and have loved it; the last several months have left me irritated, though. For some reason, now the app is very laggy when I try to edit the scanned picture. Even more frustrating is that when I scan several pages, when i go to edit them, the “thumbnails” are TINY. There is no possible way for me to see the scanned image without clicking on it to edit it, in which it blows up to full size but of the actual document picture, not the automated scanned product, so it defeats the purpose for me. This needs to be fixed ASAP. It’s come to the point that I don’t even want to use this app anymore because those two items are so frustrating, which is a huge let down because I loved this app so much.
Best and easiest scanner app, must have for any Evernote user!
by HappyGirl33 on 2019/11/05 21:28
I LOVE this app, it’s ease of use is unmatched! I am a devoted Evernote user and this app helps me stay “paperless” almost effortlessly. Evernote - please, please don’t ever discontinue this app unless you replace it with something better! One enhancement that would be an incredible gift to us Evernote power users... please allow us to add tags to items as we upload them to Evernote (pretty please) -ie: I like to file medical receipts in a healthcare file but I’d love to be able to tag them as ‘receipts’ (or even ‘receipts’ and ‘tax related’) when I’m uploading them so later I can easily find them more readily by their tag. Also I often tag items as ‘temp’ that I will want to delete down the road and searching by this tag really helps me do regular maintenance on my filing system in a flash!
Love the app! Some suggestions to the developer.
by VB 123 on 2018/11/30 18:46
Quality of the scans in PDF form is surprisingly good and the file output size is quite small and text searchable. Slightly frustrating things I’d love to see the developer improve: If you scan in PDF format and upload to Evernote, it does not give you a chance to name the file. You can’t quickly identify the file in any of the Evernote interfaces because it just shows as as a PDF that needs to be downloaded, not a preview of the PDF. I’d love it if either or both of these can be changed. I’d like to be able to name my files that I save to Evernote as I scan them. I’d also like me ability to preview the files that are PDF when they are in the Evernote explorer apps (PC, OSX, iOS) without having to click the pdf icon and wait through the download.
Got it for work, but it’s a must for all moms!
by 12.12.MB.123 on 2018/07/06 00:26
Looking for a free app for scanning, I came across Scannable. It’s great for my work needs, but I use it for so many other things. My daughter calls and asks if I can drive a permission slip to school that she forgot. Instead of driving all the way over there, I scan it, email it to a teachers and then text it to my daughter as an extra measure. My sister-in-law needs a picture of my husband for something. I can scan an old picture in a collage and email it to her immediately. Another daughter was going on an international school trip, teacher needed a copy of her passport, instantly it’s there. Not to mention it’s great for work where’re I use it primarily to archive receipts that need to be billed to specific clients. I have immediate access to a scanner! No lost receipts!
Evernote Scannable is a SOLID GREAT App
by Reviews I write nickname on 2018/07/07 20:26
I no longer need to go my flatbed scanner to create a scan of multi-page documents. I can lay a page on the desk and Scannable on my iPad Pro will find and perfectly crop a high-res picture of the page. Then I turn/hold my iPad “away” so it can’t find the next page until I have set the following page on the desk. When I turn the iPad back towards the desktop the app automatically finds and crops the next page and - auto/snap - I’m rolling along scanning a 15-20 page document in no time. For 10-20 page docs it takes the same or even less time than it takes to use the flatbed over the network. I can then save the document to my camera roll or Evernote. Best of all, this app goes with me wherever my iPad Pro goes. It’s a great app.
Scannable
by Ppaquin on 2018/06/27 11:18
I’ve used several of these types of apps, but I always return to Scannable. The feature which I like the most is the following one. When you scan something like a news article and it is not perfectly flat and square, the program allows you to crop the image by first setting the corners such that you are outlining a non-rectangular shape. You can then move the edges, which are lined up parallel to the text, to remove the extraneous material. You end up with a trapezoid surrounding the image that you want to save. When you click on done, it stretches they selected image into a rectangular shape, an option which none of the other apps I’ve tried will do. It is really pretty slick, and easy to use.
Perfect Evernote Companion
by cCdebaca on 2017/05/14 03:07
... almost, consider the rating 4-1/2 (will explain at the bottom). I have been an Evernote fan for a number of years. I benefit so much that for the past 3 years I've been a premium member as well. One challenge to going paperless is the transition between paper to digital image, generally PDF file. This was COMPLETELY resolved with Scannable. Scannable has rendered my traditional scanner almost obsolete. With a few exceptions (primarily archiving old family photos) I don't use it anymore and completely rely upon my iPhone's camera, Scannable and Evernote to keep my life paper AND clutter free. This got four and a half instead of five because of the 'connection requirement' (rating it four would have been a disservice and the reason for the connection may have to do with how documents are converted). I RV a great deal and often find myself in places where there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connections. It would be nice to be able to back up my journals when in these places but Scannable doesn't function unless it has is 'on the grid'. Bottom Line: I find great value in it.
Evernote Scannable
by D. Hill on 2017/12/12 11:38
Evernote Scannable is a very useful productivity application that makes it simple to scan various types of documents and add it to your Evernote notes. Users can modify their settings to control which notebook scans go to as well as if all notes should automatically be placed in Evernote itself. Scans of documents are of good quality with automatic cropping and adjustments making it easy to tell what was scanned in case you want to reference it later. Scanned documents can also be shared easily with others or sported in multiple formats. The app is even more useful for those with a Scansnap Scanner allowing for captured documents to be scanned. Evernote Scannable is a worthwhile download for those invested in the Evernote family of products.
Amazing
by LoMarilyn on 2017/02/21 22:08
After taking my first scan with this app immediately got rid of my big bulky scanner which is such a hassle to place photos or documents inside. The app converts the photos of documents and to clean and slick digital scans as well as crops them which is really nice. I would highly recommend this app for anyone who needs to scan multiple documents. It is a lot faster than placing the documents and a scanner one by one and waiting for the scanner to do it's thing. This app is really fast and does a great job of combining documents together. It is the next best thing to the very expensive multi document scanners in the office. For personal and small business use, this app perfect!
Where has this been all my life?
by kateon56 on 2020/06/12 14:45
I collect social security, but I’m not hopeless with technology—I rid computers of ransomware, swap memory and SIMS cards on laptops and phones—but I’ve never managed to scan a document successfully on a mobile device. This did the work for me, and let’s me know exactly where I’ll be able to find the pages. To say it’s going to be life changing might sound extreme, but for someone who is paperwork and filing challenged, it will mean hours saved looking through folders, boxes, the trunk of my car, and out of season bags. It will also be handy for all those receipts on which the print fades before the return window closes.
Issues with iPadOS 14
by jtu3 on 2020/10/03 20:28
I’ve used SCANNABLE on my iPad Pro for a long time. Since I installed iOS 14 several days ago, when I point the camera at a document to be scanned, the image freezes for several seconds before I can center it in the frame . Eventually, it unfreezes then freezes when I try to scan the document again. With patience and repeated attempts I can eventually get a good scan, but it’s quite annoying even with a 1 or 2 page scan, and it would be a half hours work to scan a 12 to 15 page document. I have removed and reinstalled the app, but no change. Is this an iPad bug with a fix on the way? Scannable on my iOS 14 iPhone X is working fine. Any suggestions? I have downgraded from five stars to three until this issue is addressed.
For Evernote users, simply the best
by Rtalbert on 2017/05/26 11:51
As an Evernote user, there's no scanning app out there that compares with Scannable in terms of simplicity and accuracy. It's literally point-and-shoot, and it gets scans into Evernote with almost zero friction. The OCR is excellent as well. This app is an indispensable part of my productivity workflow. If you are not an Evernote user, this would be a four-star app because once you scan, you have to fiddle with some buttons to get the scan to go where you want it. It's set up for Evernote use and getting it to work with anything else requires a few extra steps. That's the only downside I can see, however.
Excellent App, but Needs more Save Options
by Former Employee on 2020/09/03 23:47
I really like this app and use it constantly. From scanning papers that need to be signed and sent somewhere to logging receipts etc etc I definitely get great use from this awesome app. My only request would be to offer more locations to “save” to. The app gives me the option to save to Evernote or my Picture folder. How about saving to iCloud Drive or Google Drive or my downloads folder now that Apple has made that available. I rarely use Evernote and saving a PDF in my picture folder doesn’t make sense to me. So please add more “save locations.” Otherwise, really great app that gets a ton of use.
Good idea not implemented well - back to the scanner
by Cbrk1009 on 2019/03/02 20:27
The idea of being able to scan receipts during a trip and then not have to scan them all for reimbursement is a great one and so needed. Unfortunately this application does not make life easier. With some basic upgrades this app could be good but not ready for prime time yet. The application take the pictures but if you want to scan receipts ever day then you end up with every day being recovered and duplicates every day. The worst part is that our expense system needs pdf files but this application sends png images and it send each image as its own file so I ended up with 10 separate files in the wrong format. In essence it remains easier to just scan them into a common file and then into th correct format. Plus after sending the files all of the pictures and receipts were gone off the Evernote drive so I could no longer make changes and try again. I really this application worked but until it does will need to stick to copies and the scanner.
Essential tool for organizing
by KimFH on 2017/06/02 14:14
I wouldn't say you can't survive without it, but scanning items to digital took much longer and many more work-around steps before this app. It is one of the best companion apps and I constantly rely on it. If you rely on Evernote, you need this app. Every printed item such as receipts, recipes, hand-written post-its that I might need to keep, I use scannable to move it from printed to digital. I can store it as a photo or as a pdf... all without having to waste physical space or phone memory. For scanning receipts and the like, this is my go-to, even when a traditional scanner is available. It's that easy.
Very useful app on first try
by BrianW2012 on 2020/04/03 21:05
Chose app to scan 6 legal size documents of 4 pages each. Started with learning curve of placement of phone over document. First there is a scan box over the document, when ready picture will be taken and placed in the done box. Sometimes I would note a poor scan. Learned to take multiple scans if the completed scan didn’t look good. After multiple attempts learned there is a way to edit the scans and delete bad scans. Also one can reorder the scans positions. Ultimately emailed 6 completed pdf files to myself and printed them, my main first try goal. This was a little trial and error learning curve. At this time I’m not aware of a help file.
This teacher LOVES this app!
by CommanderToad on 2020/01/13 02:08
This app has changed my life and made what I give to students (1) higher quality and (2) faster to create. I’d estimate that it saves me more than an hour a week, and some weeks much more. It does a great job scanning a workbook or textbook page and adjusting for the binding... something copy machines are terrible at. Cropping any lingering issues and sending the pdf to myself is downright simple. In a world where students and parents expect every worksheet to be digitized and posted, this is a life saver. It’s powerful AND easy to use - a pairing seldom seen in education circles. =) Thank you so so much, Scannable team!
Excellent app that has stopped working on my iPhone
by jdouglasj on 2019/06/10 16:09
Scannable is the quickest, easiest way to transfer paper documents into OCR. I use it every day. However, the most recent version has acted squirrelly on my iPhone. After I send a document to Evernote, it tells me the documents have not been saved and asks me if I really want to delete them. But I just saved them to Evernote, so what is it talking about? This is a new step that I don’t understand. Also, it now sometimes gets hung up. After I click save I go to a screen that asks me to select Camera Roll or Evernote. I tap on Evernote but nothing happens. I’m stuck. So I have to quit the app, start it up again, go back to the same screen, and then it usually completes the process.
ReCeNtS
by Manbot2020 on 2020/01/12 17:18
What do you get when you combine an unstable scanning app, 100 pages of source material, and a deceptive “recents” tab that doesn’t do it’s only job? A recipe for disaster. Due to my limited access to a local university’s library, I chose to use scannable to secure the source information I would need for a paper I would be writing in the future. Little did I know, scannable offers anything but security. When I returned to the app 20-21 days after scanning the necessary pages, I found that all of my scans had been deleted. Mind you, not one time had I received a warning that these all-important scans would be deleted. Only once they were deleted and I began to dive into the deeper mechanics of the app did I realize that the app contains a “recents” tab. I thought, “Great, they’ll surely be in there. There’s no way this app just deleted my scans out of the blue!” I was wrong. The “recents” window claims to save recent scans for 30 days before deleting them. Unexplainably, though, my scans were nowhere to be found after only 20. This horribly unintuitive and deceptive design has now caused me to scramble to find the information I so desperately need, and I may have to spend over a hundred dollars to buy the books I found at the library. Do NOT use this app.
This is the scanner app that works
by Iorek1984 on 2019/04/11 10:47
This scanner app works the best out of all of them. Period. Especially for packets of docs with lots of staples and clips you don’t want to remove. I tried most of the other apps and they’re just not as fast or efficient as this one. Rarely do I ever have to rescan a page that didn’t quite scan correctly. I do a lot of document reviews for my job and I have to scan odd size pages and combinations of pages and document packets full of staples and gem clips. This app does the job without having to remove them. I’ve tried other apps and I’ve always come back to this one.
Best ever!
by VoyagerOne on 2019/07/22 15:51
Can it be any easier to capture all your receipts for an expense report? I think not! Maybe if it could find the receipts I lost for me! This tool has simplified my life 200 fold. Docs get signed and sent, receipts captured so they don’t get lost or run through the wash in my back pockets, plus, I look like a pro doing my expense report while on the road instead of like all the poor shlubs back at the office taping their receipts on paper and waiting en masse for the one working copier/ scanner to get their reports in on time. Be a winner- use scannable! I do and love it. And with all the time I save, I sleep in instead of going in early on Fridays!
Lifesaver
by Lynn Sann on 2018/06/26 02:06
This app compliments my BOX file system like no other . This makes all my files accessible at my fingertips all the time. I took my 19 y.o. son on a cruise who’s last name is different than mine. The port actually ask me to produce something that proves he is my son and that I’m not kidnapping an 18 year old boy , 10 inches taller than me. That would be a birth certificate?!!!. What? Why he is 18?! Well 21 is the cut off in the seaport. No sweat , my diligence in scanning documents and this amazing scannable app. Saved me at the port. The person in the counter was wowed ! With how I uncomplicate what would have been a complicated check in. Thank you Scannable and BOX!
LinkedIn integration is a dealbreaker when it comes to business card scans
by SeanBrown67 on 2018/07/08 01:51
Great app overall. Easy to use and with a nice, clean interface. I love the fact that completes and verifies contact info on the business card by contrasting it to the person’s profile on LinkedIn. For me, that’s a killer capability. My only pet peeve is when I scan a card that has an atypical format. It defaults to save it as an image, it does not identifies it as a business card. Therefore, it does not pull up the contact info. Please set an option to manually mark the scan as a business card so the app saves the info as a contact.
Great App
by Spacebuff on 2017/05/17 16:32
Edit: Compared to my flatbed scanner set at 200dpi true B&W (they call it "Text" on Macs now), this app puts out a much higher quality at a smaller file size. There has been no update since my original review so I'm not sure why I got the results I posted about in my original review. It may be that I had actually scanned in grayscale (which Apple now calls "black & white" - thanks for the confusion Apple). I'll leave my original review below assuming that it does actually apply to grayscale (i.e. Apple's "B&W") scans. I get the scans fairly easily to my computer by sending to the Notes app. Seems there should be a more straightforward way, but it's easy enough. Original Review: I tested this file against my regular scanner set to my normal document scanning settings (200dpi b&w). Other than this app being a little more "contrasty," there was little discernible difference in quality. Resolution was nearly the same. However, this app produced a file almost 3x as large! They need to fix their large file sizes before I'll abandon my actual scanner.
Better than a scanner on your desk
by Henry Anderson on 2018/06/20 13:36
This app uses your smart phone to scan documents into your phone, computer, Evernote, email, or other app. It saves as a PDF or image. It is so easy and quick, I prefer it over the scanner on my desk for projects with under 10 pages. If you use Evernote, the integration with Evernote is seamless. If you don’t use Evernote, you can share any PDF for image with another app on your phone. (For large scanning projects, where you can put a stack of papers in the scanner and it scans automatically without human involvement, a desk scanner is still better.)
Best card reader I have found for iPhone
by PMO-Sea on 2020/01/24 10:02
I have experimented with several card reader apps and scannable wins. I use it for scanning other docs now and then, but it’s power is the ability to scan a business card, read it and create a contact record...plus I can go to Evernote and see the scan anytime. It’s great to get someone’s card, scan it and hand it back....people usually appreciate it. The ‘send my contact info’ feature is a bit wonky and I have not yet been able to make that a permanent part of my workflow....but otherwise this is a fantastic app...and it’s free.
Scannable is FANTASTIC
by LuluSB on 2018/06/25 20:57
I use this app a million times a day. It has made my and my co-workers lives so much easier. No longer do we need to be worried about fax machines that break or are having trouble with the line. Nor do we need to worry about having a poor copy of an original to try and read and work with. Scannable scan a perfect copy every time, it looks as sharp and clean as the original... and it is sent and received so quickly. I can no longer live without this app. I use it for work, for legal and medical paperwork, and a million other things as well. Thank you for this great app... l LOVE IT!
Very handle, fast, but interface needs work
by JWalkerNH on 2018/07/12 11:20
This is a very handy app to have on your phone too quickly and accurately create a PDF copy of a document. But the user interface needs a little improvement. As soon as you open the app your begin searching everywhere for a document and may grab something before you have a chance to aim it what you really want to copy. As soon is it copies one page it begin searching again. This is annoying when you have a multipage document and need to turn the pages. And also it only saves to Evernote or the camera roll, not to files on the phone or iCloud.
If you use Evernote you want this
by Mrgranby on 2016/12/07 17:50
This app is pretty awesome – a little bit unsettling at first - at least with the default settings - it is basically looking to scan anything in front of the camera as soon as you open the app. But once you get used to it you see why it works like that – it's just very quick. I had been using Turbo Scan, which is a very solid scanning app also, but given how much quicker Scannable is, and the fact that pretty much everything I scan goes into Evernote anyway, I think this will be my default from now on.
Ditch the scanner
by DannySTL on 2018/07/03 13:41
If you’ve ever spent time signing, scanning and emailing documents then stop now and get this app. The ease of which you can sign, scan and email a PDF (or image if you like) of a signed document is amazing. The camera automatically recognizes a document, realigns it (if you take it at a weird angle) and converts it to perfectly contrasted black and white. Then it puts it all together in a PDF you can email right from the app. I never write app reviews, but this is one of those truly brilliant apps that really does solve a problem and will truly save you time. Love it!
Best For Those On-The-Go
by Miss Yari on 2018/10/02 21:02
For those who spend a lot of time on the road switching from one project to another and this app is a must. In my case we are required to send paperwork for expense reimbursement and this app makes it easy to do so. It cleans out the edges, adjusts lighting and converts the copies to PDF or JPEG with one click making it seem like you had a full scanner with you at all times. It also gives you the option to share a single or multiple sheets and you can choose which email address to send them from on that same window.
Distance learning with scannable
by Anoynymous on 2020/05/19 00:58
I’m a second grade teacher. One of my parents told me about Scannable early on after we started distance learning. It’s been a key element for me- I’ve uploaded daily math pages on seesaw and the kids have the tools there to do the math and turn it in digitally- that meant that I didn’t have to waste time creating new materials- I could just use what I already had- I had other things to figure out- but scannable sure helped in uploading worksheets at least- thanks- it came in handy- I hope I won’t need it in the fall though
Simple and easy
by Greahm2 on 2016/12/10 18:49
I love the app, love the simplicity. I scan every receipt, bills, credit cards and documents. It is really handy(amazing) to type in something and have Evernote find it. We always go back to a restaurant and wonder what did we have last time that we liked. Can just type in the name of the restaurant and there is a copy of the receipt with the details of our meal. For work, I have a copy of a document and if I want to get the details on something, just type in the related info and boom, Evernote provides.
Best Scanner App, Hands Down
by avakwalker on 2017/02/02 16:25
I haven't found an app even close to comparable to this one. Other apps only allow a certain number of free scans before they prompt you to buy the app or subscribe to their service, but not scannable! They also don't put a watermark on documents scanned. It works great with iCloud, too! You can add directly to iCloud from the app or you can air drop to whatever device you would like. Not to mention the quality is amazing considering it only utilizes the phones camera. I highly recommend this app!
Excellent Scanner
by KHMMJB on 2020/06/19 16:27
Scannable is a great scanner. Pictures are clear, after taking a scan Scannable is able to delete what is not necessary on the perimeter such as the contrasting background, fingers holding the page, etc. The only negative feature is that Scannable does not preserve the scans for very long. I have often not printed a page only to find out that it was deleted a week later. This is a feature that I hope is improved however, the software is not designed for long term storage thus far.
Great Scanning App, but It Resets Settings and Forgets Evernote Password
by Bryan Longworth on 2020/08/30 19:00
Scannable is a great app that scans receipts, bills, statements, etc. Another app tried only scanned when it had enough light, but scannable will use your flash to assist scanning in low light. The only thing I don’t like about it is that periodically it resets settings and loses the login to Evernote which prevents saving the scans to Evernote until I re-log in. This means that I have to take my receipts home to scan instead of scanning before I leave the store I also have to reconfigure Scannable to save to PDF which is the way way to save documents.
Needed PDF documents
by alskipsmith on 2019/11/24 08:35
Coworker showed me Evernote’s Scannable app on his iPhone. Didn’t have time to run home and scan on my desktop. Then find the documents wherever my computer stores them. Hassle city. Took a certifying exam for continuing education. Scan it on iPhone and Evernote’s pdf program captures it and prepares it for email or storage. Puts a copy into the cloud and I just had to put email address in. Evernote recognized my past emails to this institution. Few keystrokes and it filled in the address for me. Easy peasy. Very satisfied.
Helpful
by Terib3294 on 2017/03/04 18:52
Scannable is great for my work as a freelance writer. Previously I tried to transfer all my old paper files to computer using my printer/scanner, but what a pain! I had to set it up, put each page into print~scanner, press scan. . . . .and wait. . . . . THEN I'd have to move the scanned page to a file or folder. It took forever to scan a few pages in one file! With Scannable, it takes just a few seconds to point, click, & save. I also use Scannable to grab magazine or newspaper articles whether I'm at home, at the dentist, or riding in the car. Scannable is great! Thanks!!
As simple as possible
by yotam.g on 2017/10/14 01:28
This scanning app distills the scanning process down to only what is necessary. It takes all of the hassle out, leaving behind a beautiful, minimal, and useful scanner. You don’t touch the screen even once, until you are finished scanning and ready to export or email the scan. NOTE: There is a bug on iOS 11. A boolean is flipped when exporting the file via the share sheet, causing it to move to the Done screen when you cancel the export and to stay in place when you do successfully export.

Easy to use and great clarity. I use it weekly at least.
This app rocks - Especially during Covid

When trying to crop the scanned images on iPhone 12 mini, the circle that shows up to help guide where to place the crop is blacked out! Makes it unusable!
Easy Peasy
by Joulesanne on 2020/11/19 19:36
This app is so easy to use to scan something and send via email or save to a file. I have Evernote and saving directly to my account AND to a specific notebook couldn’t be easier. I only pull out the big desktop scanner if I have large, multiple page documents to scan.

I used to be able to save scans to files. But with a scan I end up at a dead end with my files but no buttons to save.
Used to be good
by LoveHeart❤️ on 2020/11/16 14:18
Used to like this app, but hate that it sometimes glitches and focuses only on one part of the paper, so the other part ends up being blurry. Tried everything-turning and twisting my phone, restarting the app, to no avail. Why can’t I click on my screen to focus??? Also why do all my scans delete everyone I update the app?? Absolutely ridiculous.
Slower now

Unable to adjust camera settings for scanning docs. Slower now, seems to spin a lot.

Missing Ability to Save
by midwest roamer on 2020/11/02 21:47
Ability to save a pdf file to the cloud is now inoperable. You can browse the file structure and edit the file name but you are trapped there. No way to save or go back. Only option to to kill the app and start again. Work around is to email to yourself and they save attachment to a directory. FRUSTRATING Even the fact that this review is white text on white background demonstrates the app is incomplete.

The App Is Absolutely Horrible After the Latest Upgrade
by AlwaystheAnalyst on 2020/10/22 01:16
was going to save and print. I tried to find a number to find out how to recover the files before it was too late and there is no number to be found and the technical support maze asks be for data that I don’t understand. Customer short should be available by phone or at least via email or text and I shouldn’t have to create some type of data Log to duplicate something I don’t understand. If I knew what happened I may be able to fix it myself.

Goodbye scanners and fax machines
by Forest White on 2017/11/02 17:33
Love this app. Use it a few times a week to "scan" my documents, receipts, book excerpts - whatever I want to keep as a digital file. Then I "share" to my Google Drive to store in the cloud, "share" to iBooks or GoodReader to have on my phone, "share" to CudaSign if I need to sign it first, and/or "send" as an email attachment, and I love that I can do all of the above. It would be nice to be able to select all the options you want to do from one screen, rather than go back and select a new option each time. It does sometimes (rarely) crash, but I have never lost any images. I like that it keeps copies of prior scans in case I need to go back. The cropping is pretty good, especially if you put a dark background behind what you are scanning. I like the "enhance" feature to optimize the printed text, and the ability to toggle easily between the enhanced version and the original. The quick toggle between PDF and image is also great. One minor annoyance is that, for some reason, the app will occasionally show the tutorial even when I haven't updated it and have been using it for months. All in all, a must-have app for me. I used to carry around docs, waiting for a time I was near a scanner or fax. Now, combined with cloud storage, a signing app like CudaSign, and email, it has allowed me to recycle paperwork immediately and free myself from clutter, scanners, and fax machines. Why do companies even use fax machines anymore?
A Must Have for College Students
by Belaphabet on 2019/04/27 06:51
Scannable is maybe my most used app ever. I’ve used it every single night for the past year, scanning homework assignments. No professor wants physical papers anymore, it’s all about uploading scans. I’ve had classes where people get no credit on assignments because their scans were poor. Not me. Scannable is super easy to make sure your papers are crisp and readable. It automatically takes the picture but lets you adjust the edges afterwards??? And not just edge by edge, you can move each individual corner so you get the best view of your page. I have literally never seen another app that lets you do that. I normally email them to myself so I can submit on my computer but that is an easy built in function. I know this review sounds like a marketing campaign but I was just talking with a friend about how idk what I’d do without Scannable. It’s WILD that this is free to use with no ads????? Like the reason I am back on the app store to write this is bc I was sure I must have paid for it at some point but NOPE. Every college students dream app tbh
Great product, but still some problems
by pleaseallownicknamegenerator on 2019/07/05 04:48
I honestly like this scanning app a lot; the scans are super fast, the auto detected borders are fairly accurate, and the end product is a great balance between quality and file size. That said, there are some problems I’d like to see fixed. I use this app predominantly for scanning books for research, but the app gets overwhelmed and is liable to crash the larger the file size gets. I’ve lost so many scanned books this way. It also stops being able to detect borders as the scanning continues. A simple fix could be to automatically save after a certain number of pages and start a new file. Also, having an adjustable colored border option would remove the need to auto detect borders every time a page is turned; the user would just need to fit the text within the confines of border (as a bonus, it would cut out any background - including fingers - that would fall within that frame). I’d like to see more options for adjusting size and quality as well. All that aside, Scannable is still one of the best scanning apps I’ve found so far, and having these few added improvements (even as a paid add-on) would make it ideal.
Scan is good but post scan is confusing and weird.
by Tim Brook on 2019/08/02 01:45
Scan quality is good. Big issue is that when we have to forward or send the document it takes default previous document name. Who designs such a way! Second if I have to access the recent document there could be simple way to do so from camera scan screen but only thing one can do is to select and delete option. Really? No way to access through app? Evernote is the parent company and they are living with such flawed features. I mean when sending someone any scanned doc. It default select all the history document and default previous doc name. Really pls fix it otherwise I would go for scanbot app. I know that won’t bother you guys to lose one user and apple wouldn’t show my review to the world. But I wish this app could have better posts an design features and weird default all select and name from previous document. Rather put name like scan001 and so on. At least when we forget it won’t go with some weird previous doc name in emails etc. or give a prompt to change the name with highlight. Definitely remove all the default select. You know why because in case I sent default all selected scan in email and reach to someone then can be security issue. I would neither anyone would prefer that!
Magical App
by kkarin on 2019/07/05 19:47
This really is magic to use. I've used many of the other scanning apps in the App Store and all are so much more difficult to use than this one. I love how it takes the scans without even pressing a button and I also like the option to do things manually. I send everything to Evernote and the integration is so simple. The only thing I wish for is the ability to do my own color correction. Sometimes the app corrects colors on pieces of artwork like it was a text document and that doesn't work for all things. Also, I would like to add tags to the documents before I send them to Evernote. I wrote this review a long time ago and still love the app. I love how automatic it is, but sometimes wish there were more manual options especially when I am scanning something with very light text and I’d like it to be more legible or a photo with glare. There are other scanning apps that can do that and it would be nice if this one could too. Despite that, for most purposes, this is my go to scanning program.
The Must-Have Student Scanner
by Anxious&Obsessed on 2020/05/13 18:36
As a student, and especially during remote learning, I find Scannable to be exactly what I need. It works well and efficiently and allows me to give my teachers PDFs made of multiple pages instead of taking a picture of every page. This is the ONLY scanning app I have found on the Store that is able to recognize spiral bound pages. Microsoft Lens, Genius Scan, and others simply cannot ‘find’ the page. As long as there is nothing in the background, Scannable can. I also love the integration with Evernote and the ability to organize scans so easily. I can go back in my many notebooks and find whatever I’m looking for. Not to mention, you can import Scannable documents from Evernote directly into Google Classroom! What a life saver. I will ask, however, that the Google Classroom integration be fixed a bit. There is an option to export documents to the app but it is extremely buggy and rarely works. Usually, I have to save the document to my Files from within Evernote and then submit it to Classroom manually. If you could fix up this feature, I’d give 5 stars in a heartbeat!
Overall better than what is out there.

If you're a die-hard Evernote user, Scannable may be the best option for you...assuming you use an iOS device, that is. Scannable on the iPhone and iPad allows you to instantly scan business cards, sketches, receipts, paper documents, and even multi-page documents with ease, and automatically file and organize the resulting images and files in your Evernote account. Your scans are automatically cropped to remove backgrounds (like the table behind the reciept, for example) and enhanced so the text is readable. If you scan a business card, the contact information from the card is automatically lifted and added to a contact card, so you can call the person, email them, or visit their website or social presence with a single tap. It's relatively new, and while it works best with Evernote, it also allows you to share your resulting scan with other apps on your iOS device, so you can upload it to Dropbox, email it, or save it to your camera roll. Best of all, it's completely and totally free—no unlocks, no premium version, although it definitely works best if you also use Evernote.
Changed my life!
by TThibs on 2018/08/23 13:34
I love sharing this app with anyone that will listen! I have saved medical forms, school forms, flyers, schoolwork, kids artwork (excellent for this because it scans just the artwork!), birthday invitations, any form that I may need to easily access, and even yard sale items (it “scans” the item in so that there is no busy background - I do put item against a solid background to help with scanning). It scans in pdf or pictures. Paired with Evernote, this has made putting my hands on “that paper” so much easier! I have used it for everything. My husband and I were closing on a piece of land and the seller needed another signature from his partner and instead of having to wait, I scanned it in quickly from my phone and forwarded for the seller and within minutes, we had the form back and could finish the closing! Love, love, love this app! And I NEVER take the time to write reviews, but again, I share this one with everyone.
Best scanning app
by stanwgg on 2019/08/19 21:14
I’ve used all the scanning apps and for clarity this is the best. For ease-of-use this is the best. To make this app better it would be nice if you could save directly to your OneDrive or iCloud. I paid the fee for Evernote and Scannable for a year I thought it would open the ability to save to OneDrive, but this is the drawback that I found. I’d like to be able to scan & save directly to one of my cloud services. I usually email it to myself and then Open the PDF with adobe then save it to one of my drives. It would be nice if I didn’t have to do that. However, it’s still the best scanning app out there and I continue to use the free Scannable app. I liked being able to save documents in my Scannable app for more than 30 days, (which when you pay the monthly service fee, you can). However, if I could save it directly to my OneDrive I wouldn’t need to save it in my Scannable app. Add this one thing & I’m a paying customer again. If this is not important for you I highly recommend this app.
Use it many times each day - a must have tool
by MK Seattle on 2019/06/26 01:14
I am required to submit completed and signed work orders to my employer after each job is completed. The app allows me to sit in my car, place the completed forms on my car seat, take a snapshot of each page, title the PDF form with the work order number and the client’s name, hit send and “whoosh”...it is sent via email, or to the fax number designated by my employer. And a few minutes later I receive an email receipt stating that the tax has been received by the specific fax number for the department I had sent it to. The app also can send PDF files directly to an email address as well. This app allowed me submit my daily work results in real time rather than waiting till I arrived home and copied each page to a thumb drive and then transferring the PDF’s onto emails. A great tool for all of us who work in the field each day in our “mobile office”.
Needs an update!
by Better than any journal on 2018/12/05 22:45
I’ve been using scannable for a couple of years now and have had no complaints. I use an iPad Pro and have loved it; the last several months have left me irritated, though. For some reason, now the app is very laggy when I try to edit the scanned picture. Even more frustrating is that when I scan several pages, when i go to edit them, the “thumbnails” are TINY. There is no possible way for me to see the scanned image without clicking on it to edit it, in which it blows up to full size but of the actual document picture, not the automated scanned product, so it defeats the purpose for me. This needs to be fixed ASAP. It’s come to the point that I don’t even want to use this app anymore because those two items are so frustrating, which is a huge let down because I loved this app so much.
Best and easiest scanner app, must have for any Evernote user!
by HappyGirl33 on 2019/11/05 21:28
I LOVE this app, it’s ease of use is unmatched! I am a devoted Evernote user and this app helps me stay “paperless” almost effortlessly. Evernote - please, please don’t ever discontinue this app unless you replace it with something better! One enhancement that would be an incredible gift to us Evernote power users... please allow us to add tags to items as we upload them to Evernote (pretty please) -ie: I like to file medical receipts in a healthcare file but I’d love to be able to tag them as ‘receipts’ (or even ‘receipts’ and ‘tax related’) when I’m uploading them so later I can easily find them more readily by their tag. Also I often tag items as ‘temp’ that I will want to delete down the road and searching by this tag really helps me do regular maintenance on my filing system in a flash!
Love the app! Some suggestions to the developer.
by VB 123 on 2018/11/30 18:46
Quality of the scans in PDF form is surprisingly good and the file output size is quite small and text searchable. Slightly frustrating things I’d love to see the developer improve: If you scan in PDF format and upload to Evernote, it does not give you a chance to name the file. You can’t quickly identify the file in any of the Evernote interfaces because it just shows as as a PDF that needs to be downloaded, not a preview of the PDF. I’d love it if either or both of these can be changed. I’d like to be able to name my files that I save to Evernote as I scan them. I’d also like me ability to preview the files that are PDF when they are in the Evernote explorer apps (PC, OSX, iOS) without having to click the pdf icon and wait through the download.
Got it for work, but it’s a must for all moms!
by 12.12.MB.123 on 2018/07/06 00:26
Looking for a free app for scanning, I came across Scannable. It’s great for my work needs, but I use it for so many other things. My daughter calls and asks if I can drive a permission slip to school that she forgot. Instead of driving all the way over there, I scan it, email it to a teachers and then text it to my daughter as an extra measure. My sister-in-law needs a picture of my husband for something. I can scan an old picture in a collage and email it to her immediately. Another daughter was going on an international school trip, teacher needed a copy of her passport, instantly it’s there. Not to mention it’s great for work where’re I use it primarily to archive receipts that need to be billed to specific clients. I have immediate access to a scanner! No lost receipts!
Evernote Scannable is a SOLID GREAT App
by Reviews I write nickname on 2018/07/07 20:26
I no longer need to go my flatbed scanner to create a scan of multi-page documents. I can lay a page on the desk and Scannable on my iPad Pro will find and perfectly crop a high-res picture of the page. Then I turn/hold my iPad “away” so it can’t find the next page until I have set the following page on the desk. When I turn the iPad back towards the desktop the app automatically finds and crops the next page and - auto/snap - I’m rolling along scanning a 15-20 page document in no time. For 10-20 page docs it takes the same or even less time than it takes to use the flatbed over the network. I can then save the document to my camera roll or Evernote. Best of all, this app goes with me wherever my iPad Pro goes. It’s a great app.
Scannable
by Ppaquin on 2018/06/27 11:18
I’ve used several of these types of apps, but I always return to Scannable. The feature which I like the most is the following one. When you scan something like a news article and it is not perfectly flat and square, the program allows you to crop the image by first setting the corners such that you are outlining a non-rectangular shape. You can then move the edges, which are lined up parallel to the text, to remove the extraneous material. You end up with a trapezoid surrounding the image that you want to save. When you click on done, it stretches they selected image into a rectangular shape, an option which none of the other apps I’ve tried will do. It is really pretty slick, and easy to use.
Perfect Evernote Companion
by cCdebaca on 2017/05/14 03:07
... almost, consider the rating 4-1/2 (will explain at the bottom). I have been an Evernote fan for a number of years. I benefit so much that for the past 3 years I've been a premium member as well. One challenge to going paperless is the transition between paper to digital image, generally PDF file. This was COMPLETELY resolved with Scannable. Scannable has rendered my traditional scanner almost obsolete. With a few exceptions (primarily archiving old family photos) I don't use it anymore and completely rely upon my iPhone's camera, Scannable and Evernote to keep my life paper AND clutter free. This got four and a half instead of five because of the 'connection requirement' (rating it four would have been a disservice and the reason for the connection may have to do with how documents are converted). I RV a great deal and often find myself in places where there is no cellular or Wi-Fi connections. It would be nice to be able to back up my journals when in these places but Scannable doesn't function unless it has is 'on the grid'. Bottom Line: I find great value in it.
Evernote Scannable
by D. Hill on 2017/12/12 11:38
Evernote Scannable is a very useful productivity application that makes it simple to scan various types of documents and add it to your Evernote notes. Users can modify their settings to control which notebook scans go to as well as if all notes should automatically be placed in Evernote itself. Scans of documents are of good quality with automatic cropping and adjustments making it easy to tell what was scanned in case you want to reference it later. Scanned documents can also be shared easily with others or sported in multiple formats. The app is even more useful for those with a Scansnap Scanner allowing for captured documents to be scanned. Evernote Scannable is a worthwhile download for those invested in the Evernote family of products.
Amazing
by LoMarilyn on 2017/02/21 22:08
After taking my first scan with this app immediately got rid of my big bulky scanner which is such a hassle to place photos or documents inside. The app converts the photos of documents and to clean and slick digital scans as well as crops them which is really nice. I would highly recommend this app for anyone who needs to scan multiple documents. It is a lot faster than placing the documents and a scanner one by one and waiting for the scanner to do it's thing. This app is really fast and does a great job of combining documents together. It is the next best thing to the very expensive multi document scanners in the office. For personal and small business use, this app perfect!
Where has this been all my life?
by kateon56 on 2020/06/12 14:45
I collect social security, but I’m not hopeless with technology—I rid computers of ransomware, swap memory and SIMS cards on laptops and phones—but I’ve never managed to scan a document successfully on a mobile device. This did the work for me, and let’s me know exactly where I’ll be able to find the pages. To say it’s going to be life changing might sound extreme, but for someone who is paperwork and filing challenged, it will mean hours saved looking through folders, boxes, the trunk of my car, and out of season bags. It will also be handy for all those receipts on which the print fades before the return window closes.
Issues with iPadOS 14
by jtu3 on 2020/10/03 20:28
I’ve used SCANNABLE on my iPad Pro for a long time. Since I installed iOS 14 several days ago, when I point the camera at a document to be scanned, the image freezes for several seconds before I can center it in the frame . Eventually, it unfreezes then freezes when I try to scan the document again. With patience and repeated attempts I can eventually get a good scan, but it’s quite annoying even with a 1 or 2 page scan, and it would be a half hours work to scan a 12 to 15 page document. I have removed and reinstalled the app, but no change. Is this an iPad bug with a fix on the way? Scannable on my iOS 14 iPhone X is working fine. Any suggestions? I have downgraded from five stars to three until this issue is addressed.
For Evernote users, simply the best
by Rtalbert on 2017/05/26 11:51
As an Evernote user, there's no scanning app out there that compares with Scannable in terms of simplicity and accuracy. It's literally point-and-shoot, and it gets scans into Evernote with almost zero friction. The OCR is excellent as well. This app is an indispensable part of my productivity workflow. If you are not an Evernote user, this would be a four-star app because once you scan, you have to fiddle with some buttons to get the scan to go where you want it. It's set up for Evernote use and getting it to work with anything else requires a few extra steps. That's the only downside I can see, however.
Excellent App, but Needs more Save Options
by Former Employee on 2020/09/03 23:47
I really like this app and use it constantly. From scanning papers that need to be signed and sent somewhere to logging receipts etc etc I definitely get great use from this awesome app. My only request would be to offer more locations to “save” to. The app gives me the option to save to Evernote or my Picture folder. How about saving to iCloud Drive or Google Drive or my downloads folder now that Apple has made that available. I rarely use Evernote and saving a PDF in my picture folder doesn’t make sense to me. So please add more “save locations.” Otherwise, really great app that gets a ton of use.
Good idea not implemented well - back to the scanner
by Cbrk1009 on 2019/03/02 20:27
The idea of being able to scan receipts during a trip and then not have to scan them all for reimbursement is a great one and so needed. Unfortunately this application does not make life easier. With some basic upgrades this app could be good but not ready for prime time yet. The application take the pictures but if you want to scan receipts ever day then you end up with every day being recovered and duplicates every day. The worst part is that our expense system needs pdf files but this application sends png images and it send each image as its own file so I ended up with 10 separate files in the wrong format. In essence it remains easier to just scan them into a common file and then into th correct format. Plus after sending the files all of the pictures and receipts were gone off the Evernote drive so I could no longer make changes and try again. I really this application worked but until it does will need to stick to copies and the scanner.
Essential tool for organizing
by KimFH on 2017/06/02 14:14
I wouldn't say you can't survive without it, but scanning items to digital took much longer and many more work-around steps before this app. It is one of the best companion apps and I constantly rely on it. If you rely on Evernote, you need this app. Every printed item such as receipts, recipes, hand-written post-its that I might need to keep, I use scannable to move it from printed to digital. I can store it as a photo or as a pdf... all without having to waste physical space or phone memory. For scanning receipts and the like, this is my go-to, even when a traditional scanner is available. It's that easy.
Very useful app on first try
by BrianW2012 on 2020/04/03 21:05
Chose app to scan 6 legal size documents of 4 pages each. Started with learning curve of placement of phone over document. First there is a scan box over the document, when ready picture will be taken and placed in the done box. Sometimes I would note a poor scan. Learned to take multiple scans if the completed scan didn’t look good. After multiple attempts learned there is a way to edit the scans and delete bad scans. Also one can reorder the scans positions. Ultimately emailed 6 completed pdf files to myself and printed them, my main first try goal. This was a little trial and error learning curve. At this time I’m not aware of a help file.
This teacher LOVES this app!
by CommanderToad on 2020/01/13 02:08
This app has changed my life and made what I give to students (1) higher quality and (2) faster to create. I’d estimate that it saves me more than an hour a week, and some weeks much more. It does a great job scanning a workbook or textbook page and adjusting for the binding... something copy machines are terrible at. Cropping any lingering issues and sending the pdf to myself is downright simple. In a world where students and parents expect every worksheet to be digitized and posted, this is a life saver. It’s powerful AND easy to use - a pairing seldom seen in education circles. =) Thank you so so much, Scannable team!
Excellent app that has stopped working on my iPhone
by jdouglasj on 2019/06/10 16:09
Scannable is the quickest, easiest way to transfer paper documents into OCR. I use it every day. However, the most recent version has acted squirrelly on my iPhone. After I send a document to Evernote, it tells me the documents have not been saved and asks me if I really want to delete them. But I just saved them to Evernote, so what is it talking about? This is a new step that I don’t understand. Also, it now sometimes gets hung up. After I click save I go to a screen that asks me to select Camera Roll or Evernote. I tap on Evernote but nothing happens. I’m stuck. So I have to quit the app, start it up again, go back to the same screen, and then it usually completes the process.
ReCeNtS
by Manbot2020 on 2020/01/12 17:18
What do you get when you combine an unstable scanning app, 100 pages of source material, and a deceptive “recents” tab that doesn’t do it’s only job? A recipe for disaster. Due to my limited access to a local university’s library, I chose to use scannable to secure the source information I would need for a paper I would be writing in the future. Little did I know, scannable offers anything but security. When I returned to the app 20-21 days after scanning the necessary pages, I found that all of my scans had been deleted. Mind you, not one time had I received a warning that these all-important scans would be deleted. Only once they were deleted and I began to dive into the deeper mechanics of the app did I realize that the app contains a “recents” tab. I thought, “Great, they’ll surely be in there. There’s no way this app just deleted my scans out of the blue!” I was wrong. The “recents” window claims to save recent scans for 30 days before deleting them. Unexplainably, though, my scans were nowhere to be found after only 20. This horribly unintuitive and deceptive design has now caused me to scramble to find the information I so desperately need, and I may have to spend over a hundred dollars to buy the books I found at the library. Do NOT use this app.
This is the scanner app that works
by Iorek1984 on 2019/04/11 10:47
This scanner app works the best out of all of them. Period. Especially for packets of docs with lots of staples and clips you don’t want to remove. I tried most of the other apps and they’re just not as fast or efficient as this one. Rarely do I ever have to rescan a page that didn’t quite scan correctly. I do a lot of document reviews for my job and I have to scan odd size pages and combinations of pages and document packets full of staples and gem clips. This app does the job without having to remove them. I’ve tried other apps and I’ve always come back to this one.
Best ever!
by VoyagerOne on 2019/07/22 15:51
Can it be any easier to capture all your receipts for an expense report? I think not! Maybe if it could find the receipts I lost for me! This tool has simplified my life 200 fold. Docs get signed and sent, receipts captured so they don’t get lost or run through the wash in my back pockets, plus, I look like a pro doing my expense report while on the road instead of like all the poor shlubs back at the office taping their receipts on paper and waiting en masse for the one working copier/ scanner to get their reports in on time. Be a winner- use scannable! I do and love it. And with all the time I save, I sleep in instead of going in early on Fridays!
Lifesaver
by Lynn Sann on 2018/06/26 02:06
This app compliments my BOX file system like no other . This makes all my files accessible at my fingertips all the time. I took my 19 y.o. son on a cruise who’s last name is different than mine. The port actually ask me to produce something that proves he is my son and that I’m not kidnapping an 18 year old boy , 10 inches taller than me. That would be a birth certificate?!!!. What? Why he is 18?! Well 21 is the cut off in the seaport. No sweat , my diligence in scanning documents and this amazing scannable app. Saved me at the port. The person in the counter was wowed ! With how I uncomplicate what would have been a complicated check in. Thank you Scannable and BOX!
LinkedIn integration is a dealbreaker when it comes to business card scans
by SeanBrown67 on 2018/07/08 01:51
Great app overall. Easy to use and with a nice, clean interface. I love the fact that completes and verifies contact info on the business card by contrasting it to the person’s profile on LinkedIn. For me, that’s a killer capability. My only pet peeve is when I scan a card that has an atypical format. It defaults to save it as an image, it does not identifies it as a business card. Therefore, it does not pull up the contact info. Please set an option to manually mark the scan as a business card so the app saves the info as a contact.
Great App
by Spacebuff on 2017/05/17 16:32
Edit: Compared to my flatbed scanner set at 200dpi true B&W (they call it "Text" on Macs now), this app puts out a much higher quality at a smaller file size. There has been no update since my original review so I'm not sure why I got the results I posted about in my original review. It may be that I had actually scanned in grayscale (which Apple now calls "black & white" - thanks for the confusion Apple). I'll leave my original review below assuming that it does actually apply to grayscale (i.e. Apple's "B&W") scans. I get the scans fairly easily to my computer by sending to the Notes app. Seems there should be a more straightforward way, but it's easy enough. Original Review: I tested this file against my regular scanner set to my normal document scanning settings (200dpi b&w). Other than this app being a little more "contrasty," there was little discernible difference in quality. Resolution was nearly the same. However, this app produced a file almost 3x as large! They need to fix their large file sizes before I'll abandon my actual scanner.
Better than a scanner on your desk
by Henry Anderson on 2018/06/20 13:36
This app uses your smart phone to scan documents into your phone, computer, Evernote, email, or other app. It saves as a PDF or image. It is so easy and quick, I prefer it over the scanner on my desk for projects with under 10 pages. If you use Evernote, the integration with Evernote is seamless. If you don’t use Evernote, you can share any PDF for image with another app on your phone. (For large scanning projects, where you can put a stack of papers in the scanner and it scans automatically without human involvement, a desk scanner is still better.)
Best card reader I have found for iPhone
by PMO-Sea on 2020/01/24 10:02
I have experimented with several card reader apps and scannable wins. I use it for scanning other docs now and then, but it’s power is the ability to scan a business card, read it and create a contact record...plus I can go to Evernote and see the scan anytime. It’s great to get someone’s card, scan it and hand it back....people usually appreciate it. The ‘send my contact info’ feature is a bit wonky and I have not yet been able to make that a permanent part of my workflow....but otherwise this is a fantastic app...and it’s free.
Scannable is FANTASTIC
by LuluSB on 2018/06/25 20:57
I use this app a million times a day. It has made my and my co-workers lives so much easier. No longer do we need to be worried about fax machines that break or are having trouble with the line. Nor do we need to worry about having a poor copy of an original to try and read and work with. Scannable scan a perfect copy every time, it looks as sharp and clean as the original... and it is sent and received so quickly. I can no longer live without this app. I use it for work, for legal and medical paperwork, and a million other things as well. Thank you for this great app... l LOVE IT!
Very handle, fast, but interface needs work
by JWalkerNH on 2018/07/12 11:20
This is a very handy app to have on your phone too quickly and accurately create a PDF copy of a document. But the user interface needs a little improvement. As soon as you open the app your begin searching everywhere for a document and may grab something before you have a chance to aim it what you really want to copy. As soon is it copies one page it begin searching again. This is annoying when you have a multipage document and need to turn the pages. And also it only saves to Evernote or the camera roll, not to files on the phone or iCloud.
If you use Evernote you want this
by Mrgranby on 2016/12/07 17:50
This app is pretty awesome – a little bit unsettling at first - at least with the default settings - it is basically looking to scan anything in front of the camera as soon as you open the app. But once you get used to it you see why it works like that – it's just very quick. I had been using Turbo Scan, which is a very solid scanning app also, but given how much quicker Scannable is, and the fact that pretty much everything I scan goes into Evernote anyway, I think this will be my default from now on.
Ditch the scanner
by DannySTL on 2018/07/03 13:41
If you’ve ever spent time signing, scanning and emailing documents then stop now and get this app. The ease of which you can sign, scan and email a PDF (or image if you like) of a signed document is amazing. The camera automatically recognizes a document, realigns it (if you take it at a weird angle) and converts it to perfectly contrasted black and white. Then it puts it all together in a PDF you can email right from the app. I never write app reviews, but this is one of those truly brilliant apps that really does solve a problem and will truly save you time. Love it!
Best For Those On-The-Go
by Miss Yari on 2018/10/02 21:02
For those who spend a lot of time on the road switching from one project to another and this app is a must. In my case we are required to send paperwork for expense reimbursement and this app makes it easy to do so. It cleans out the edges, adjusts lighting and converts the copies to PDF or JPEG with one click making it seem like you had a full scanner with you at all times. It also gives you the option to share a single or multiple sheets and you can choose which email address to send them from on that same window.
Distance learning with scannable
by Anoynymous on 2020/05/19 00:58
I’m a second grade teacher. One of my parents told me about Scannable early on after we started distance learning. It’s been a key element for me- I’ve uploaded daily math pages on seesaw and the kids have the tools there to do the math and turn it in digitally- that meant that I didn’t have to waste time creating new materials- I could just use what I already had- I had other things to figure out- but scannable sure helped in uploading worksheets at least- thanks- it came in handy- I hope I won’t need it in the fall though
Simple and easy
by Greahm2 on 2016/12/10 18:49
I love the app, love the simplicity. I scan every receipt, bills, credit cards and documents. It is really handy(amazing) to type in something and have Evernote find it. We always go back to a restaurant and wonder what did we have last time that we liked. Can just type in the name of the restaurant and there is a copy of the receipt with the details of our meal. For work, I have a copy of a document and if I want to get the details on something, just type in the related info and boom, Evernote provides.
Best Scanner App, Hands Down
by avakwalker on 2017/02/02 16:25
I haven't found an app even close to comparable to this one. Other apps only allow a certain number of free scans before they prompt you to buy the app or subscribe to their service, but not scannable! They also don't put a watermark on documents scanned. It works great with iCloud, too! You can add directly to iCloud from the app or you can air drop to whatever device you would like. Not to mention the quality is amazing considering it only utilizes the phones camera. I highly recommend this app!
Excellent Scanner
by KHMMJB on 2020/06/19 16:27
Scannable is a great scanner. Pictures are clear, after taking a scan Scannable is able to delete what is not necessary on the perimeter such as the contrasting background, fingers holding the page, etc. The only negative feature is that Scannable does not preserve the scans for very long. I have often not printed a page only to find out that it was deleted a week later. This is a feature that I hope is improved however, the software is not designed for long term storage thus far.
Great Scanning App, but It Resets Settings and Forgets Evernote Password
by Bryan Longworth on 2020/08/30 19:00
Scannable is a great app that scans receipts, bills, statements, etc. Another app tried only scanned when it had enough light, but scannable will use your flash to assist scanning in low light. The only thing I don’t like about it is that periodically it resets settings and loses the login to Evernote which prevents saving the scans to Evernote until I re-log in. This means that I have to take my receipts home to scan instead of scanning before I leave the store I also have to reconfigure Scannable to save to PDF which is the way way to save documents.
Needed PDF documents

Coworker showed me Evernote’s Scannable app on his iPhone. Didn’t have time to run home and scan on my desktop. Then find the documents wherever my computer stores them. Hassle city. Took a certifying exam for continuing education. Scan it on iPhone and Evernote’s pdf program captures it and prepares it for email or storage. Puts a copy into the cloud and I just had to put email address in. Evernote recognized my past emails to this institution. Few keystrokes and it filled in the address for me. Easy peasy. Very satisfied.

Scannable is great for my work as a freelance writer. Previously I tried to transfer all my old paper files to computer using my printer/scanner, but what a pain! I had to set it up, put each page into print~scanner, press scan. . . . .and wait. . . . . THEN I'd have to move the scanned page to a file or folder. It took forever to scan a few pages in one file! With Scannable, it takes just a few seconds to point, click, & save. I also use Scannable to grab magazine or newspaper articles whether I'm at home, at the dentist, or riding in the car. Scannable is great! Thanks!!
As simple as possible

This scanning app distills the scanning process down to only what is necessary. It takes all of the hassle out, leaving behind a beautiful, minimal, and useful scanner. You don’t touch the screen even once, until you are finished scanning and ready to export or email the scan. NOTE: There is a bug on iOS 11. A boolean is flipped when exporting the file via the share sheet, causing it to move to the Done screen when you cancel the export and to stay in place when you do successfully export.
