Scan documents to produce sharp images, draw lines, enter texts, fill forms, and sign.
Share as PDF / JPEG by email, WiFi file sharing, cloud storages, webdav, and fax.

DocScan lets you instantly scan multi-pages document and send out when there is no scanner nearby. By having it, you can scan not only documents in sight, but also whiteboards, receipts, business cards, posters, coupons, books ...etc.

It can fast auto-detect document edges from a picture, correct perspective distortion, remove shadows and brighten it up to produce a clear and sharp document, especially useful in a Low-Light environment.
You can enter texts to fill forms, draw lines, annotate, or sign on the scanned image anytime.

When you have a long list of documents, it is easy to search documents by name and use folders for organizing documents: create, delete, rename, and move documents between folders. You can also use password to protect documents in a folder from unauthorized view.

In-app fax sending and receiving is convenient especially when you are out of office or have no fax machine at all.
You will receive a push notification when a fax is sent or received succesffuly or failed for what reason.

Each PDF file can be accessed directly from iTunes or WiFi file sharing by tapping on the "Generate PDFs" button or the "WiFi file sharing" button in the settings screen. You can also email documents out as PDF or JPEG files.

Useful app

I have tried various scanning apps as I sometimes need to scan a document while away from my PC. I can confirm that this is definitely the best of the bunch.
UPDATE: There is no scanner in the App Store that is better than this one.
UPDATE: I have just tried two more scanners, then deleted them. DocScan is still my No.1 favourite.

Excellent for scanning any kind of document

I often need to scan receipts and other documents when on the road, and this app is excellent for doing so. Especially useful is the ability to crop and resize documents.
I’ve had it for a considerable time and would not be without it.

Great app with excellent support

I have used this app for a long time, and been very happy with it. When I had a problem using the auto page recognition I got a quick response from the developer which was clear and very helpful.

Developer Response ,

If you put a “white” document in a dark background or a “dark” document in a white background, and keep the background clean as possible with only the target document in the camera screen, it will detect very well and the orange overlay should be stable.

Otherwise, you still can take a picture and then tap on the rectify button to adjust the corners no matter what the app detected.

If you really want to turn off the new auto detect function, you can tap on the On/Off button in the top left corner in the camera screen.
