What's New

Version 5.0.6

We have released Genius Scan 5.0 a couple weeks ago. Here is what's new! If you are interested in the smaller changes that happened since then, see below.


- Redesigned main document list with clarity in mind. We have simplified it so that you quickly find your most important features. The search field only appears when you want it (pull down on the main list). If you have tagged documents, the tags will be displayed alongside the document title.
- Unified document page list and full screen view. These two different screens led to a lot of confusion but they are now merged into a single screen. You can swipe horizontally to go to the next page.
- Improved zooming controls. You can now use a double-tap and double-tap & drag gesture to control zooming on a document’s page
- Copy pages. You can now duplicate a page into another document (in addition to moving it from a document to another document).
- Export status indicator. Your documents are important and we want you to know whether they have been exported or not, so we have added an export status indicator. Green means all good. In every document, you will be able to see its export history. If you are looking at your global export history, you will find it under Settings > Export > Export History but this is now deprecated.
- Safety. We have added more confirmations before destructive actions such as deleting a document or merging documents together.


- Reorganized camera screen. You can quickly access your existing photos and your documents stored in the Files app. A press on the + button lets you directly import your documents from Photos and Files.
- Quick Actions. We introduce Quick Actions which let you quickly edit your scan right after snapping the picture – or delete it if you are unhappy. As a consequence, we have removed the "Manual" mode as it's now replaced with these Quick Actions.
- Improved image processing. We have perfected the post-processing of document shadows which means that Genius Scan is much better at removing them.

- [5.0.3] Automatically scroll to the currently displayed page. This makes it faster to export a single page of a document.

- [5.0.1] Fixed bug which resulted in a disk space leak
- [5.0.2] Fixed a couple crashes
- [5.0.3] Properly send location to Evernote notes if requested by user
- [5.0.3] Fixed bug that could result in a duplicate page when validating a scan
- [5.0.5] Fixed crash that could happen when exporting a document
- [5.0.5] Fixed export to SugarSync
- [5.0.6] Fixed bug that could prevent exports to cloud services

We hope you will like this new release! We know there are changes that will affect some of you but know that we took a lot of care and thinking to make sure this was a largely positive change for everyone in terms of UX and safety. If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know at as this will help us improve on it or address issues you may encounter.

In app upgrade doesn’t work!


If you want to use the premium features (the only reason you would really use this app) Do NOT download this version!!!

It may work initially but If you ever have to reinstall or you upgrade your phone etc -you will NEVER get the upgrade back again. There is a “restore purchase” button but this never works. Raising the issue with support gets no where as they blame Apple and Apple support blame the app => time and money down the drain.

My advice ... only try this free version out, if you decide you like the app - DELETE it and buy the plus version instead (though I can only assume that works as I’ve switched to an alternate app rather than wasting more money here).

Excellent app


This is a great way to store and/or email documents. It is quick and easy to use, it does exactly what the vendor states. Who needs a scanner or a fax when you have your iPhone or iPad.

An improvement I’d like to see in a future update is the ability to organise documents into folders, I have been using this great app for some time and have collected more than a few documents.
