Super Scan - the ultimate scanner with ocr, filtering, organizing and sharing of your documents
By Sparkling Apps BV
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Super Scan turns your iPhone or iPad into a multipage scanner for documents, receipts, notes, whiteboards, and other text.
With Super Scan, you can quickly scan your documents and store or share them as multipage PDF files.
Super Scan boasts a powerful yet easy to use interface. No need to go into deep menus, most day to day functions are right there on the main screen.
Super Scan can export to the cloud in PDF format. Share your documents with anyone. But no internet connection is needed for the scanning and OCR processing, this all happens on your iPhone or iPad only. Security guaranteed for confidential documents.
Super Scan uses optical character recognition (OCR) on your documents so you can do a simple, but powerful text search on them afterwards. Storing your documents within Super Scan is practical and secure, using our library feature.
SUPER SCAN FEATURES:
• Document naming, storage inside the app and search
• Multipage editing: reorder, delete and add pages
• Email document as PDF
• Printing via AirPrint
• Share documents directly to the cloud in PDF format

Very Poor OCR and Blurry Cropping
I tried the OCR (optical character recognition) on very sharp and clear screenshot image of fairly large typed text and this app got almost every character WRONG!
Furthermore, when I tried to crop the screenshot image to focus the OCR onto a smaller area, the cropped image came out blurry, yet when I zoom into the original, the image is very clear, so this app's cropping features seems to downgrade the image into a lower quality one.
When cropping, you cannot zoom into the image to make the crop area easier to see.
The OCR is terrible
Horrible OCR and fake shill reviews.
The app is adequate for the majority of its advertised features... Except the one I really need. The OCR is atrocious. I took a snap of a very clear, well lit page of standard serif font text, and here is what this app retrieved:

To make matters (and my rating) worse, the developers chose to pad their ratings with a bunch of super fake reviews. Look at the names of the 5-star reviewers.
Sparkling Apps: if you want good reviews, fix your app. In my very limited use, I found it has a pretty good interface and works well overall, you just need to fix (or remove) the OCR.
And stop using fake reviews. :)
