Fails at basic features like rotation 2/5
By Caleb Kierum
Not only does this app not use ocr or the orientation of the device to estimate what orientation a page is in, it also does not have a way to rotate every page of the document to fix their error.
Recognizing the text to determine the orientation of the sheet is a difficult computing problem (I get that) but having a button that rotates the whole document is not. The fact that such a feature is not included shows a lack of thought and care.
Does not work 2/5
Does not work on my iPhone X love cos up and freezes.
Lights Out 5/5
If Scanner Pro has stock you need to just go ahead and buy it. I’ve had the app since 2014. Every time I use it I remember why I actually purchased it. Pure, simple and hands down the best. I have an extremely expensive printer at work that can’t hold Scanner Pro’s briefcase.
Awesome app! So many helpful features! 5/5
Documents scanned quickly available in PDF and shareable! Definitely part of my daily toolset.
By Marianne Flores
It does what it's supposed to do and more! Best scanner ever
It has flaws and will delete your files now and then. 1/5
For the years I let be these app. And I purchased more apps from these guys. But for some reason every time I need to see my file, the app just don’t have it in there. It dumps the data from the iCloud for some reason and the it take forever to download it. So when you need to see your file in hurry it’s basically not there. And defeats the purpose of this app.
Don’t waste your money on this. I will now look somewhere else for my scanner app. Very sad. Also I contacted them few times by going into feedback but they simply just don’t have an answer and ask for more information rather than addressing the issue.
I think it’s a good app when it works.
Another thing is, if you have too many folders and files then this app will starting to run slow. Also this app doesn’t have all the new ios features. Like swipe features to go back etc. it’s not optimized and I now think it’s downgraded.
Sorry but I was one time a huge fan of this.
Excellent App 5/5
I downloaded Scanner Pro this morning, and after using it for 10 minutes, I’m hooked. I’ve scanned and emailed a few important documents, and it has a Radar feature that scanned my photos and brought up what it thought were scannable documents. By using this feature, I was able to turn some long forgotten information into a PDF. Well done, Scanner Pro team — keep up the great work!!
Loses files, crashes 2/5
The actual scanner function is usable and convenient, however, this app on multiple occasions has lost my documents that I've scanned. This is unacceptable.
Also, it seems like every other time I try to export documents using the email function, this app crashes completely.
Overall it's an ok app -- developers need to work on data management within the app and also email export compatibility.
Waste of money. No different than just snapping a picture of an item except it comes out worse!!!
Not working... 1/5
It exits every time I try to open it.. I paid for it and I can’t use it....
Life saver 5/5
This will solve so many problems. Get you out of so many jams. It's a shame more apps aren’t this useful.
Makes organization easy 5/5
By Brace war hound
I am on the road working all the time out of my truck. Scanner pro makes it easy to scan and send my receipts for credit card purchases.
I love it!
More like “scammer pro” 1/5
Don’t expect to do much with this app unless you are willing to do ‘in app’ purchases. This is not evident until you purchase. #sad
No better scanning app 5/5
Don’t waste your time with any other scanning app. Just pay the money and get this one.
p good, needs a minor feature added 4/5
would be absolutely perfect if it had the option to just "scan" (i.e., deform a portion of an image to align with the edges of the image frame) without modifying the image at all in terms of color, contrast, brightness, etc.; as is, it's an exceptionally useful and well-designed app that works as advertised.
(i use it quite often when working on large artworks that won't fit in a scanner, and it works fabulously for that, except that it alters the color/contrast/brightness etc. no matter which color option you select (b&w doc, b&w photo, color doc, color photo) - which, as you can imagine, isn't super optimal with image work (where getting an accurate + faithful reproduction of the piece is important).)
Best Pocket Scanner I have used 5/5
Easy to use and share documents. Anyone can easily use this app.
Good Stuff 5/5
What a lifesaver! 5/5
Love this app so much! Scans as good as my flatbed on the desktop, and a lot less paper in my life.
saving to folder BROKEN!! 2/5
decent app. does pretty good job of scanning documents. just turn off automatic mode. it doesn’t do want you want.it is useless and wastes your time
but my real beef right now is i am stuck with a HUGE scan that took me over one hour to create at the library, which i evidently have no way to get to a computer other than emailing it, which is probably going to hit mail server limits!
Very useful 5/5
I like how easy it is to use and how it integrates to cloud services.
I've been using this app for years, it is everything you could want from an app like this.
It's easy to use, versatile, faxing is cheap and easy (I rarely use that function but the couple times I needed to it worked flawlessly)
It's a 10 star app in a 5 star rating system. I have recommended this app to everyone I have spoken to that needs to scan, email or fax documents while not near a computer, scanner or fax machine!
Not working!!! 1/5
This app worked great at first. All it does now is crash. It won’t even stay open. I paid for the Pro $4.99 :(
Best Scanner for Several Reasons... 5/5
Looking at Readdle’s business and the apps they provide, it looks like anything by Readdle including this Scanner Pro is here for the long run. They seem to operate like a software company and I know they won’t be a here for a year, gone the next year sorta app.
Now it has OCR recognition and it works well!
I’ve been using this to convert papers into PDFs for years now and the app keeps getting better!
Great mobile scanner for the money 1/5
By Scotty Apricoty
For $4 this app is a pretty good deal for light to moderate scanning of documents on the go
As of 11/25/17 the app locks up my iPhone 7 after light use. Just downloaded the newest update, too. Cannot reach Readdle’s app support page, so will rate it 1 star for now.
Recent update doesn’t work 3/5
I am a huge fan and have been using this app for years but the recent update bricked the app on the iPhone X
Printing error 1/5
App has worked pretty solid. No problems for about 3weeks of use. The printing is not working properly as it cuts off the bottom of the page. It’s not my printer bc I printed other PDF documents from my phone without this problem. App is useless to me now!
Works well 5/5
Can quickly scan items and it detects edges in real time. It works so well and I love that I can fax from within the app. Also great for business cards and I keep them all in a folder for quick reference
Lived by the scan and fax functions through house refi 5/5
I got this app to scan and fax things back to the bank during a refi on my house and ended up living by this app for about 2 months. It has stayed on my devices since and is now my fax machine for pretty much everything and has been for the last year. The option for iCloud saves has also been a life saver many times. All you need is a good printer, this app and you can pretty much run a business LoL or refi a house in my case.
Great app! 5/5
By ya im a lawyer
Great app! Easy to use! Works well. Way better than taking a photo, especially of important documents.
Best Ever 5/5
This is the only scanning app I will ever need. After using Scanner Pro I am ready to delete the rest. Not much to say, it just works as advertised.
Made by aliens, don’t think about it just buy it. 5/5
Bruh, this app is straight lit. No need to waste time writing about it. If this offers you some use you feel you need, know it won’t disappoint. It does what it says flawlessly.
terrible auto scanning 5/5
the autodetection of the page you’re trying to scan is absolutely atrocious and I’ve wasted a lot of time with what should have been straightforward scans. This app seems unable to detect pages that have relatively uniform illimination and sharp boundaries. I’d strongly recommend looking elsewhere for a scanning app.
I have had this app for over a year and never had issues. It’s amazing how well it works.
Great For Elderly Care 5/5
By User Experience Guy
My Mom and Dad have documents that needed to be access remotely, but they needed to be able to read them, taking a picture of them did not work, i am glad i was able to store documents for them and produce documents that can be zoomed in with clarity.
The best scanner ever 5/5
This app is the best. But I’ve got a suggestion. Please add the option to choose the interval of asking the code or Touch ID after reopening the app. Something like “Lock after 1/2/5 minutes”.
Almost Perfect 3/5
There's a lot to love about this app. It's simple, intuitive, and does a great job at recognizing pages and transforming them into quality scans. I love the custom share sheet and integration with iCloud Drive.
It's almost perfect, but I'm deducting two whole stars in hopes that it'll bring attention to the fact that the app chokes when I need to scan more than a handful of pages. For example, I wanted to scan 35 whole pages yesterday. By the 8th page, the app was glitching out and slowing down on me. It was barely usable, but it worked—up until when my phone (a 7 Plus) literally overheated and rebooted. My scanned pages were still there in the app, but it was a nerve-wracking experience when I really just needed the scan done quickly and uploaded. I understand that it must take a lot of processing power for Scanner Pro to do what it does, but if I paid for a Pro app, I'd want to be able to seamlessly scan a whole bunch of pages in one go.
Regardless, if your particular use case is light, you'll be satisfied with Scanner Pro.
Best scan app ever!! 5/5
Being in trucking industry, my drivers spent $1000’s mailing paperwork in via FedEx because no scanner app was able to come close enough to provide good copies of documents. I have finally found an app that works great and also uploads all paperwork to the cloud for me.
A great scanner. 5/5
By Meapthe great rocks
I love this one. Easy to use and does the work it should do.
Great scanner 5/5
Hands down the best scanner app
Bad update? 1/5
Love this app, but idk what happened, recently it’s been glitching and freezing my entire phone!! Please fix!!!
Stop asking me to review this in app 1/5
Good app, but dev is too desperate for reviews
I love this app! 5/5
Works very well; I especially like how it corrects and straightens out the document.

It mot working on my 6s ios 11.1.2. after last udate!
Huge Help 5/5
By Josiah D K
I am the music director of a small church, and Scanner Pro has been a huge asset in my sheet music preparation. I primarily use it to create clean, easily readable pdfs from my collection of hymn books. It works better than any of the scanners on the printers I have owned or currently own--rendering a small file size with excellent visual quality that is easy to share with my musicians.
Scanner better than home scanner 5/5
By 'Nette Simon
This is the best $3.95 I have ever spent. You have the ability to scan all your documents, put them in separate folders, email, save in the iCloud to retrieve from a different device, and you have the ability to organize the documents and folders as you wish.
The best phone scanner I have ever used so far.I hope it can support Chinese in OCR. 5/5
This is the best phone scanner I have ever used so far.I hope it can support Chinese in OCR.
I hope Scanner Pro can change brightness and contrast by typing exact numbers not only dragging.
I hope Scanner Pro can support 🇨🇳 Cloud Services. As you all know there are some problems 🔒🚫 connecting to Cloud Services outside 🇨🇳.
Keeps on closing on its own 1/5
After the new update, the app keeps on closing on its own and I can’t get anything of my documents out of the app because it wouldn’t stay open
worked until last update -- now wont launch 1/5
No word on what is wrong, reinstalling does not help...
Stalls, won’t open, crashes, freezes 1/5
By SF Redbeard
WOW, this product has deteriorated beyond use. Running on an iPhone 6+ (iOS 11.1.1). When it does open the camera is VERY Slow to register an image, staggers and chops with even small movements, and hiccups to reorient on the image. Crashes constantly while trying to save. I have loads of memory, so that is not the issue. For now absolutely terrible.
GR8 on both my iDevices 5/5
Really good features, low fax cost, very low app cost (universal for my all my devices) than the 2nd best, similar app. Love the OCR accuracy! Good, solid developer. Works well @ 14+ days of testing after evaluating 4 similar apps. (I keep the 2nd best app on hand but have never had to resort to it.)
