App Crashes 1/5
App has been crashing on opening for a few months now. Restarted and all. Reached out to app support. They replied once but no communication since then. So disappointing since I’ve been using this app happily for years now. Now I have to go through the process of finding and paying for a new app.
Very smooth and glitch-free 5/5
I use Scanner Pro for the purpose of reducing the physical space taken up in my filing cabinets. I’ll soon be 59 and have a long history stuffed into boxes that I have endeavored to send through my shredder. This application is intuitive and problem-free for me.
I have a suggestion regarding the filing of scanned documents that - if implemented - would make things more convenient. As it is, you can put multiple documents into a file with a name (let’s say “AUTO”), bit you cannot create subfiles within the original file. I own two vehicles and in the AUTO file, I have TRUCK documents and SUV documents as subfiles. What I would suggest is making it possible to make subfiles within the TRUCK and SUV files that I could name INSURANCE, SERVICES, FUEL, etc.
But I still love this application for its ease of use and the space it’s helping make a reality.
Best scanner to pdf app I’ve ever used 5/5
Worth every penny. Saved me lots of time over the years and helped me store and organize stuff. You can’t beat it
Love ALL Readdle apps, well done 5/5
Some devs 'drop off the map' or sell out but Readdle is an excellent and responsive company that keeps the current functionality while adding features or designs that iOS requires from year to year. I did lose my iCloud data but that is an APPLE problem like their failure to keep up their add-on software (they lose track of file markers) but this dev rises to the challenge and picks up the slack. I was able to re-download most of my stuff.
best IOS scanner app! 5/5
I have used this app for years. It provides the best and most seamless way of scanning pdf and jpegs.
I thought I finally might get around to posting a rating 😊
Be aware of auto renewal 1/5
Buyer beware this app will charge you a renewal fee! I thought I bought a one time payment kind of app. Well I got charged $11 yesterday for this measly app I use very rarely. It is not worth $11! If $3 per year I wouldn’t mind. They bundle a bunch of junk and jack up the price to $11! Incredible. Scammers.
Outstanding and great continued support 5/5
I have owned and used this app extensively for years. It works great and continues to receive updates and improvements on a regular basis.
Great app just continue to update it
I faxed an important doc twice and they never arrived even tho the app said delivered
Great app 5/5
I love the app, it works well and is always on time when I need to send an important documents.
After 4 years of this product 5/5
Thanks guys for being there every step of the way. This app has been in my life for the past 4 years and it has been consistent and reliable. I can’t believe after 4 years, you guys are still updating and taking accountability for your product. This type of service is rare. I appreciate your dedication to the product. Whatever you release next, I am sold. Worth ever penny. I look forward to your next innovation. Thanks!
Best Scanner App 5/5
Tried a few and found this the best of all. Fast and fuss-free, easy to use and ocr works better than most.
Love the App, But... 4/5
Really do love this app. Really put together well, so, thank you.
There is only one issue. When I share with Apple Files the app frequently crashes. Click share, and when it looks for the folder structure, it frequently goes to a white screen and the only way to fix it to forage close the app. 5 stars without this issue.
Best Scanner App 5/5
I just want to say that this is by far the best scanning app I have used. It meets my needs and even does Fax! Such a useful app and I truly appreciate the efforts made to make this app the way that it is. Recommend over all other scanning apps.
Incredibly low resolution! 1/5
If you want to use this to scan receipts or other documents, it turns out extremely low quality. Just take a picture of what you want, paste into Word and turn that into a PDF. This was a waste of money!
I liked and purchased the app 2/5
By Mrs Alexandria Smith
Just did not like the third party they sell your information to. It is the international call scammers. The app will also tandem into your contact lists.
Got this app on a whim. I can have documents emailed to me and fill them out scan them and either email them or fax them back. I can also save them to photos or transfer them into other apps. Used this so much with my business and my medical records. No stopping at staples and cussing at their fax printer crap set up. I can deal with this on the move. I hardly ever write reviews and never go back after owning something for awhile and write a review. Had this for over a year. Please don’t ever take this app down!
Great app for scanning text 5/5
Since I first started using the app — at which time my review wasn’t very favorable — the app has evolved enormously: the scanning options have improved, user’s ability to pinpoint the scan area (as well as the fact that if you’re short on time, you can scan something and make those edits later), not to mention the ability to condense what are rather hi res images into smaller files. The text recognition feature works well in English and French, providing the text is clear. This app has become my go-to tool, and I find I’m using it almost every day. It works less well with images because it’s harder to make a perfectly rectangular frame (you might be better off doing slight adjustment in some image editing software like Photoshop P.S.), but when it comes to text I’m really amazed how well it handles even a totally curled up sheet of paper.
A few *tips* for new users:
• the flatter you can place your original document the better; it matters less if your phone is perfectly parallel to the surface. ScannerPro will sort that out.
• if you’re scanning B&W doc, it’s ok to have underexposed scans or shadows falling across the page. Again, ScannerPro does miracles with B&W text.
• pay more attention to lighting & glare when scanning color documents or photos. Also be more careful about camera angles for best results. If done right you can scan in an old family photo and make it look like it was taken with your camera in the first place.
• when scanning B&W docs the text may sometimes look squashed or too wide: adjust the format of the page: A4, Legal, Ledger... whatever, until the page looks right to you. This will not affect your printing ability: when printing you can always set the paper you want and scale to size. I’ve never even had to worry about that.
• make sure all the pages in your document are the same size: you will avoid jagged angles if you’re reading on screen.
• the scans are nice hi res. For B&W documents you can safely upload it to your cloud as Small. ScannerPro is actually better at reducing documents than Adobe.
• if you’re scanning a larger # of pages, make sure to save the doc every so often, don’t wait until you’re done. Although ScanerPro is fairly good about crashes: I once had about 70pp in queue when it crashed and lost only 2.
If anything else comes to mind I’ll come back & add to it.
• scanning pages that have little text on them but you still want to scan the full page often come out weird, and sometimes strange shadows appear in conversion to plain B&W doc that aren’t in the original image. Or scanning a page with a poem on it that leaves a lot of blank space to the side: that blank space often gets flooded by a strange shadow...
• image scanning could use improvement. I would pay extra for the app if it had some improved color image extension.
THANKS FOR A GREAT APP! It’s been a life saver!
Long time user 5/5
I have been using this app for a long time and love it. Am buying a house and it has been extremely convenient to scan documents to send to the mortgage company.
Cannot move files out! 2/5
By New York +30
After you reach some (unknown) size, iTunes does not show any of your files, it just spins forever. So you cannot copy them out of the app. Meanwhile iCloud is full. Stuck. The app developer made a huge mistake to depend on , the now to be removed, iTunes for wire file transfer!!
Simple to use for only( $3.99 ) its awesome. 5/5
By true Review writter
Super easy to scan. Document comes out great , I was worried about documents with small print on them and these up catches all.
I like the fact one payment and does it.
No need for subscription and free trails,
I rarely need something scan and print and I hate looking for places to allowed me to print or scan, and few places have ridiculous fees.
New rev fails 1/5
Long time user, always worked great. Today’s update crashes after saying “migrating libraries“. I’m sad now.
Great scanner app. 4/5
This is the best scanner app I’ve used. It’d be a 5 star app, but I absolutely HATE the custom share sheet and workflows are to limited.
The workflow doesn’t support any of the apps I use for work, like GoodNotes. I’d love to be able to scan a restuarant receipt and have it instantly shuttled over to GoodNotes to a specific notebook. That would be incredible.
I also wish that you could have a setting where, when the app is launched, it’s already in camera mode, ready to scan, without having to tap the (+) button. This would speed up scanning receipts when I’m traveling.
Otherwise, the app is just about perfect for what it does.
Previously a must-have app 5/5
By No Global Settings
This was the best performing app on my phone for several years. Last two updates cause it to crash upon opening. I emailed the developer and they asked for a crash report so I sent it to them directly but they never followed up. It’s been a month. I’m not the only one this is happening to based on the recent reviews. What happened to these guys?
Updated 6-5-2019 After a month this app work again. Upgraded to five stars.
My go to scanner 5/5
I started using this app several years ago and have never had anything but a top notch experience. It works great.
Simply. Best 5/5
Literally the best app for all your scanning needs. The pretext message matches exactly to what I have to say.
The best app to handle all of your scanning needs right on your iPhone.
Great job developers!
User friendly than other apps 5/5
Best app ever to scan and keep documents
Truly worth all five stars. One of the most used and excellent performing apps I have. Works equally as well on iPhone or iPad. One of the very few apps that I cannot do without.
I Love it ❤️
Love the app just need more fax options 3/5
The app is awesome... everything looks perfect but the fax side looks like 1985 and everything is so un-updated ... you guys need to make the layout more attractive and have more options with pricing for people who use your fax option a lot or have multiple pages... then I will give 5 stars
Excellent app 5/5
Scanner Pro without any hesitation is one of the best app on the App Store it offers a lot of productivity to ones everyday work on iPhone or iPad.
Good App missing important feature 3/5
I have used scanner pro for at least 6 years and I think it is very capable app when compared to lot of other more popular scanner apps out there.
The only reason for 3 stars is it is missing a key feature that enables a pdf file to be directly copied in to the app using “open in/ Activities”. I hoped this would eventually be added as it is a common feature available on other scanner apps like genius scan, CS scan, etc. I have even submitted a request for support, but was told it’s not on their road map.
My favorite app 5/5
I used to carry around an Epson DS-30 in my laptop bag for scanning while on the road. This app completely eliminates the need for it. Documents are captured exactly how you want them and the quality is superior to my actual portable scanner. Excellent app!
No matter the setting, doesn’t email pdf. 1/5
Used to love this app. Now, emailing just goes to jpeg regardless of how many times I change to pdf, I re-Installed the app knowing I’d lose all docs that weren’t saved. Still will not email in pdf.. Shame.
Good scanner...but..... 3/5
Pretty decent scanner app, however until they implement sub folders or tags...they will only get 3 stars. Seems like they would develop this capability to separate themselves from the competition.
I really like the black and white scanner but... 4/5
The black and white scanner is awesome, I just got the app and scanned several documents and it worked wonders, but I tried the color scanner and it turned out super blotchy and it covered some of the lettering. If I could give this a 4.5 out of 5 I would because it’s really not that big of a deal, but it is a bit bothersome.
Can’t recognize my handwriting 1/5
This app cannot recognize my handwriting at all, and it’s not that I have horrible handwriting, because I don’t. The problem is that when I scan my handwritten notes and I turn it into text on the app, the results are more or less computer coding language, not English. I payed $4 for this app to not do what I wanted it to do. Lame. I also tried it on a printed book, and converted the scan into text. The result of this was mostly great, besides a few punctuation errors.
Miffed about PDFs 3/5
I’ve had this app for several years and I love, love it. Until now. I see after a recent update they have disabled the free PDF option and now I have to pay $6 for a PDF app. Really stinks and drops the value of this app, which cost $ to use.
Beats using my scanner for documents! 5/5
So easy to use and excellent quality scans. My mom was just grumbling about having to send off a form - she hates our scanner - and I said, “I have an app that can do that!” Snapped the scan photo and it looked perfect. Really easy to share, email etc right from the app. My parents were blown away and my mom said, “I want that app too!”
Phenomenal App 5/5
I travel a lot and this app has been amazing in helping me keep up with receipts and business expenses. I used to carry around a neat receipts scanner, but this app, integrated with Dropbox, has made it so I don't have to carry that thing around anymore. I simply capture receipts, push them to Dropbox, and they are immediately available on my computer for expense submission. Very polished interface. This thing just works. Brilliant the way it deskews an image and removes perspective. it's almost fun to use. Very well thought out.
Update: 2/10/2013 STILL Awesome. Use for nearly everything I need to digitize.
Update: 4/19/2014 just gets better and better. Save every receipt I get to Dropbox. My "Go To" app to digitize.
Update 7/14/2014: still the best. Just works. Absolutely the best scanner app on the market!!
Update 5/12/2015: features just get better and better!!
Continued greatness. I use this app almost daily to scan and catalog my receipts.
Probably the most valuable app on my mobile device. THE one app I wouldn't want to do without.
Still using this app everyday. Still awesome, just like everything developed by Readdle. Great app!! 8+ years using this app!!!!
App locks up after scanning a few pages.
Best scanner app on the market 5/5
At first I was skeptical because of the price but when it comes down to the quality you might as well never buy a scanner again cause this app is the real deal it’s worth every penny. It has unbelievable detection system and it will make sure your image will fit your style whatever that style may be and it lets you lock documents with a passcode I wouldn’t recommend any other scanner app.
Not close to the best 2/5
I’ve been pleased with Readdle’s Calendar app, so I thought I would give its doc scanner a try. Big mistake. The “auto” scanning feature is anything but. No matter the lighting conditions, background or positioning of my iphone, Scanner Pro is unable to capture my documents. I ended up downloading Scanbot Pro, and boy what a difference! As soon as I open the Scanbot app, it’s able to detect my document and immediately capture and upload it to the cloud. For a couple of extra bucks, skip Scanner Pro and download Scanbot Pro.
Works ok 3/5
By Old Skype user
So far so good
Adding characters to document name 2/5
When saving a scanned document, randomly the app will add the word page with a number and then a list of alpha-numeric characters to the name. It isn’t visible until checking where the document was saved. Very annoying as I have to rename once saved. Secondly please return to the previous menu for saving/uploading documents, the menu of non-used apps is a workflow obstacle. Thank you, I do appreciate the app and use it daily.
Privacy notice 3/5
Love the App, but getting tired of having to click the “I’ve read the notice” button every time I open the App. I’ve read the notice already. Can you make that go away so I can just open the app without having to click the extra button EVERY time! Once should be enough.
OCR request 4/5
Please add Hebrew to the OCR function. I use this app to scan Hebrew books. Academic books to further Biblical scholarship. The OCR function works great for the English, but Hebrew would be a great addition. Since you have Japanese and Chinese I can't imagine adding Hebrew would be much difficulty. אבגד etc. I can type with them so can you please add them?
Thank you. Max
Keeps auto-scanning even in manual mode making the app worthless to me
