Great App 4/5
I use this app primarily for scanning music and sharing it to my forScore app. I have to first share to Adobe Pro, then from there to forScore. Would be better if I could share directly to forScore. Still this is the best scanning app for the purpose I have found.
99 cents to send a fax? 1/5
Purchased pro version so I wouldn’t encounter extra fees. Who else knows what they have fee based in the pro version. Worst.
Upload freeze 3/5
I’ve used Scanner Pro through many phones and mostly it works quite well. Lately though, I can’t open a multi page document I’ve scanned several days ago. I usually scan three or four pages and the view page has no page count and gives me a “Cannot Open Document” message. I’ve opened it and viewed the scans since saving them but I guess it’s trying to back it up again or something.
I’m looking for another app because I have to be able to view a document when “I” want and not when it’s convenient for the app.
Sorry Readdle, you dropped the ball on this one.
Randomly deleted scans I had been doing for 3 hours straight. 1/5
By Master Amino
Livid. Absolutely, devastatingly livid. Never again.
Not intuitive 1/5
By PO'd in Seattle
Can’t seem to add new scans. Difficult to find old scans or it has lost them. Hate this thing. Will delete and try another
Very Functional! 5/5
By Ammar Joudeh
Awesome app, just needs a better icon and overall UI improvements!
Over all app is great! Fax portion of the needs work. 3/5
I needed to send a fax today and thought I would try this app to do that since I use this app for everything else! Well over all experience was good BUT I would like to recommend 2 key things, a log of faxes maybe by number or something and someway to get confirmation the fax was sent! Some faxes are very important and at the very least I would like to maybe get a email confirmation that the fax was sent! Thanks!
Does what it is supposed to 5/5
I needed to scan documents. I used my phones camera to scan the documents with no problems whatsoever. Docs looked great. I noticed I forgot to fill in a part on one of the documents and was able to edit and replace the document easily. I then emailed the document. Super.
Best Scanner, period. 5/5
I was using primarily another scanner to perform scans and it is still a good scanner but Scanner Pro surpasses all I have tried in terms of the clarity and ease of editing pictures. I scan many things but mostly chapters from textbooks not available in digital form because my eyesight is not so great. With other scanners the chapters would take forever to process, plus the editing left me with a less than desirable shape that was almost impossible to highlight. With this, no matter how the book is bent, the scan comes out perfectly straight and functional, plus the scans are much brighter and easier to see. Even when I must edit some of my hasty scans, no matter how wonky my edit seems I still end up with a perfectly straight result. Also, if you use the other Readdle products it makes it very easy to process then send to, in my case, PDF Expert where I do the majority of my markups, notes and storing of all of my school material. This app has been a real timesaver and of all of the other scanning apps, has the best quality and share functions. Scanner Pro also keeps a library of my scans, where the files are big enough to read, even on my small iPhone 8, which is great, so I am not hunting for certain scans I need to email out, quickly and haven’t had any problems with returned emails due to size issues which I have experienced with other scanners outputs so the overall file size must be smaller but with a better quality scan. This is definitely my “to go to scanner“, now.
Good but not great. 3/5
By K Tosh
Wanted to use this for scientific papers but the OCR cannot detect superscript numbers used in the body of the text which denotes references.
Camera won’t open in app 1/5
By Abraham Lincolnz
App worked great for a year, starting last night the app won’t load the camera or my pictures.
I tried reinstalling the app but it didn’t help.
No help on website. No email response from company. 3/5
I connect to onedrive to upload scans. Every other scan upload I get the following error "upload failed with error code -1". I unlinked onedrive and relinked several times. No go. I deleted app and reinstalled. No go. Time to look at something else.
Still Awesome 5/5
I’ve used this app for years and unlike other apps that change the rules on you after a while, this one has been solid.
Good but ... 2/5
By raghad ghalib
Why the Arabia language not found ??
Why we can scan pictures only ?
You should add pdf scanning more easy than picture picture
, i hope add more feature, l feel the app just primitive app
Why there’s signal in pdf expert of scanner but we can't use it in the same app
Plz update this feature quickly, it’s hard to do pdf scanning out of pdf expert, time wasting & can’t put the scanning page again in the same site 😑😑😑😑
Great scanner app 5/5
Perfect to keep the busy professional organized. Highly recommend.
Why did program stop working 4/5
I have been using this app for a couple of years but all of a sudden in past couple of weeks I cannot receive scans to my email. Not sure what happened.
Great, trouble-free app 5/5
The best scanner app I’ve ever used. So easy and efficient.
It's like a hand-held photocopier/scanner! 5/5
This is the best few dollars I've spent on an app! It works just as well as a copier of scanner - even better, actually, since you can crop and edit right from the phone. It will even correct most "phone and hand shadows" from taking the pictures. Variety of options for saving/sending the files, too. I'd definitely recommend it!
Crashes frequently 3/5
By The mighty db
Works ok, but crashes pretty often but not clear why. Usually picks up at an appropriate place after restarting. OCR seems to be of highly variable quality. I don’t use it much but I think I’ll investigate alternatives.
Way Beyond My Expectations 5/5
I rarely write reviews, but this app surprised and impressed me!
I scan and edit numerous text documents. Recently, I had to scan a 50 page legal document which would require extensive post scanning annotations. I wanted to annotate this document using Readdle’s PDF Expert (a great app!). I scanned the document using the scanner function on my Apple MacBook Pro and my HP scanner. That worked, but it took awhile to scan the individual pages. Then, I had to merge the individual scan files for each scanned page to yield a pdf document, with individual pages, I could annotate. The downside was I still could not highlight and underline the text on any page. I did not attempt to OCR the pages. That would require an extra step, never seems to work as well as I need it to, and takes extra time.
After I had a finished pdf version of my legal document, I discovered, reviewed and decided to buy ScannerPro. As a test, I re-scanned my legal document using ScannerPro. First, I setup ScannerPro to automatically upload scanned documents to my Dropbox account. It then took me less than 10 minutes to scan the document and wait for it to be uploaded to Dropbox. Next, I used PDF Expert on my laptop to access and edit the scanned document. I had to rotate the pages because of the orientation of my iPhone when I scanned the document, but that was easy to do with PDF Expert. ScannerPro's OCR worked great. I now have a document I can edit and annotate with no obvious limitations in a fraction of the time.
In the future, any time I have a document to scan I'll use ScannerPro.
Sooooo good 5/5
I cannot recommend highly enough. No bs, just straight out the best scan to PDF app. I save everything to back up paper with this. Love this app, thank you.
Almost perfect, but now crashing 3/5
I used the app a lot and loved it. Now It crashes after scanning the first page. What can I do?
So helpful! 5/5
By A. Non E. Mouse
I scanned 20 final exams, 9 pages each, in a little less than a minute each, using the auto scan feature. Faster than pulling out staples and scanning in a scanner. Cloud sync through iCloud works well, as does OCR.
Love. This. App. 5/5
This is one of those apps that makes my life ridiculously easier. Especially if you are scanning a large number of page this will scan them in a fraction of the time it would normally take.
The Best 5/5
By Benz raja
Using for several years. The best handy application.
Always have some grey shadow 2/5
The user experience is good however the grey shadow is really annoying.
Great app 5/5
Love it! Very useful!
The ease of use, the potential to declutter....awesome
Best scanning app I've used 5/5
I'm a teacher and I love uploading children's work and other documents. It's very user friendly and easily uploads to my google drive account.
I use this app for work & school! I constantly use this app; it's great to upload documents that I need to save to my email. Especially images can be converted into black & white. I have used this app for years & I absolutely enjoy this application! Keep up the good work!
Features missing overall I recommend 4/5
How can I add multiple folders inside a folder for example (insurance) —> car insurance; health insurance. Also is there a way to create a folder/ move to a folder after scan with out having to upload then select?
Some apps have the ability to create multiple folders.
Also doesn’t really directly connect to my files. I wish there was more options on this app... like a button to add folder, I keep trying to hard press the plus sign hoping it will allow me to add a folder...
Also there is no way to add a folder in a folder...
But... I like the app. Could be faster... I have to fiddle with it for a while... but ya
Still these are little things everything else Very good!
Outstanding app. Get rid of A4! 5/5
ScannerPro is an outstanding app that has all but taken over for my flat bed scanner.
The other day I was editing some scans. For reasons unknown it defaulted the paper size to “A4” that so many developers love and no one else has heard of or uses! Please do not offer “A4” as default, and best of all expunge it. If there is a user base for it, then offer a setting so the size defaults to “letter”. Thanks.
Great quality and ease-of-use! 5/5
This app produces outstanding quality scans, simply by snapping a photo. It creates multipage documents with ease, and then converts them to a PDF that you can email or text if necessary. When I recently sent a document scanned on this app, the recipients thought it had been scanned on a flatbed. Bravo for a high-quality, easy to use scanner.
By ian 9999$
Love the workflow included and quality of scans. I can easily send receipts to the office and even shoebox by using workflow. Scanning quality is outstanding
Great But... 2/5
Great app but would like to have ID scan feature as where both sides can be scanned on a single page..May me in the form of collage..
Excelente app 5/5
By Samuel kbs
Me encanta esta app, muy buen trabajo 💪
Simple and AMAZING 5/5
By Career Player
I'm and engineer, not much impresses me and I never write reviews.
THIS APP HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. No exaggerating, no kidding - straight up changed my life. I tell everyone I know to buy this app.
It's simple to use and easily configurable. The quality is fantastic.
My wife even loves this app and she's not technical at all.
We use this for personal use and business use.
Someone at Readdle sat down and said "How can we build the perfect scanner app?" - and that's what they did!
There's simply not enough stars to rate this app high enough.
THANK YOU READDLE!
Great app 5/5
This app has helped me so much with my organization! This app paired with the new iOS file system is a dream.
The best app to scan paperwork 5/5
Stop looking at other apps. This is all you need to scan paperwork, photos, flyers, whatever you need. You can save them as JPEG or PDFS, edit and send easily. OH! HAVE I MENTIONED HOW EASY IT IS TO GET AN AWESOME SCAN?! IT’S SO EFFICIENT!
So far the best one I’ve used 5/5
This is my go to app for taking paper and turning it into digital documents. I’ve got a lot of paperwork to keep up with and it’s ray with this app to be able to store it all in my box app. Please keep up the good work!
Can’t live without 5/5
This app has been on my phone since it came out. I use it constantly and could not live without it.
Great app! 5/5
I’ve used this app to quickly scan my airframe and power plant logbooks. It did a terrific job and was quick. The ability to flip a page and it automatically scans is amazing! Thank you.
Works well. 4/5
Everything works as expected, except it has a hard time uploading documents to iCloud without giving you a white screen of death.
Great, use it every day! 5/5
The scans are excellent quality. Easy to use application. Great organizational tools. My only criticism stems from the fact that I use the application all the time. I wish I could see the scans in the Apple file application or the Readdle Documents application. Then I could transfer all of the folders to external storage such as a lightning capable USB drive for backup. The only way to backup my scans now is to transfer them one at a time through the share process.
App needs improvement 2/5
I have owned this app and used it for years. It is nice to be able to scan all my receipts on the road. Recently more and more companies are emailing receipts and I have a need to compile these into a PDF and send them via PDF to our finance group.
The problems are two fold. The only way to get the emailed receipt, whether it be a PDF or other type of document, into this app is screenshot it and then laboriously go back into the Scanner Pro app and import them into the app, where manual cropping is required. This contrasts with other scanning apps like Genius Scan which allows you to directly import them into the app itself from a menu that pops up in the actions tab (where you would forward the PDF or other document).
Second problem is when the screen capture is imported, the quality is so poor that others cannot read the actual document at all. This is likely a compression problem or, more likely, a result of the Scanner Pro app trying to adjust the resolution/color to one of it’s four pre-determined resolution settings.
I have asked Readdle to support the import direct function months ago with no progress shown. Therefore, I am likely making the leap to Genius Scan by Grizzly Labs until they fix these two issues. I do love Readdle apps and would easily assist them in explaining more as I truly believe they have an excellent suite of products. Problem is this is just not usable now for my circumstances.
I used to really like this app 1/5
But my scans are now getting corrupted. A simple scan of a few pages takes an hour because the scan pages get corrupted. Yikes!
What happened to Gmail app compatibility?! 4/5
I used to be able to scan something, tap send, and select my gmail app to send it in an email... now the only emailing app that shows as available is the Apple mail app. Why did you guys seemingly remove the gmail app as an option? I don’t use Apple mail and I hate that app. Please bring back the option to use gmail.
OCR simply not working 1/5
The look and feel of the app is great, but sadly I have never once had anywhere near a clean OCR scan on any document ...
There are no controls for character recognition (except language) so there is no way to tweak results. I guess if you have a plain text document it may work, but in practice I have bills, DMV paperwork, receipts, etc. that have small graphics, and varied fonts, and those minor things are enough to throw the OCR waaaay off.
The results are comical in many cases with single letters being recognized as multiple letters of vertical text! And there seems to be no predictive algorithm to help the OCR take a reasonable guess at words, so you get some letters correct but not all.
I’d love to use this to simplify my life, but it is not ready.
Cannot press take picture button 1/5
By Benny Honah
5S running iOS 9.3.5. Cannot press the take picture button. No response renders the app useless.
Great scanner app - one feature request though 4/5
This is one of the best scanner apps I’ve used. Very good at detecting edges and auto cropping. I love that I can take scans and fax them but one thing is missing - here’s the feature request- it would be great if the scanner app had a share sheet extension so that I could get documents I didn’t scan into it for faxing. I’d rather have one app than have to download a separate app for faxing.
