Great scanner application, but...


...I have had a few issues with some recipients not being able to open my scans at their end after sending the documents to them via email as PDFs. I currently have the free version and haven't upgraded to the pro version for this reason... which for me is the main purpose for owning and using this application. If this worked 100% of the time, as I think it should, then I wouldn't hesitate in getting and trialling the Pro version (before using as my main scanner - something that I need to do many times every day whilst away from my desktop printer/scanner/fax unit).
Am I missing something, perhaps...?
I think I have been very generous with my star feedback considering the amount of time it takes to take all of these scans/photos which I might then need to fall back on to send on to any recipients as they are, anyway! This is in the hope that there might have been a very simple reason for the inconsistencies...

The near perfect scan app


I moved from TinyScan as their support & updates became non-existent. I wanted an app that auto uploaded to Dropbox - something that only a very few apps feature.
This one works perfectly except one annoying flaw- the flash.
It’s not often I take photos in even light. On other apps I would use the flash which filled in any shading or creases on the paper and therefore made them disappear when converted. Unfortunately Scanbot uses the torch feature as their flash which is no where near bright enough so any folds or shadows become big black marks on the paper when converted. Not sure why they couldn’t use the iPhone proper flash like other apps.

If this was fixed it would be a straight 5*
