Customer Reviews


Needed to scan a few book excerpts to incorporate in article I am writing and thought this app might be what I need. Installed on my iPad Mini but when I tried to scan book pages the app kept telling me the pages were not visualizing or something. Plus was unable to copy as text the one and only selection I did manage to sort of scan. Discovered that the only way to convert the file to plain text or Word Doc would have been to use online Adobe conversion tool and pay them 23 bucks a year for a subscription. And who knows if that would have worked. Surprised that David Sparks, someone I very much respect, has been shilling for this developer by narrating a video on their web site. This app in my opinion is totally worthless and the app description is bogus. Don't waste your money.

Great app

I use Scan+ primarily for scanning multi-page documents and for the OCR feature. In general, those features work quite well, and page edge recognition is solid (comparable to other good iPhone "scanners" out there). What I like most is the ability to quickly and easily scan multi-page documents: Scan+ senses edges, takes a pic, and you move on to the next page. Unlike other scanners, Scan+ has optical character recognition (OCR) capabilities, which is a huge bonus if you ever want to search the text of a scanned document.

The worst in a crowded market

I have used virtually every scanning app on the market. This one takes the medal for being the worst. Using the auto feature, the app crashes routinely. It gives you not a second to turn the page before snapping a photo of your fingers. Also, it is very dumb in finish the page edges so oftentimes it cuts off corners. Finally, the manual mode functions as a (bad) camera and the documents turn out worse than simply using the iPhone's built in camera. I like this company but this app did not get much love from them, clearly.
