Codex is a simple, beautiful scanning app that lets you hashtag, backup, and share your scans and photos.
A THOUSAND NOTEBOOKS IN YOUR POCKET
Ever have a project that spans two notebooks? Meetings from six months ago in another notebook? Put it all in once place and never be without.
SCAN DOCUMENTS & PAGES WITH EASY CROP
A simple, easy-to-use scanner that lets you crop live with just one finger. Then just point and tap—and you’re done.
UPLOAD AND ORGANIZE YOUR PHOTOS
With the option to add multiple hashtags, finding the right photo is easy. No more searching through folders for the right category.
HASHTAGS, NOT FOLDERS

Ratings and Reviews
It’s sometimes tough to make the analog and digital worlds play nicely together, but Codex is like a counselor who makes this relationship work beautifully. When our thoughts are scattered among half a dozen notebooks, Codex’s simple-to-use page scanning brings everything together, letting us group ideas by hashtag and back up scanned pages to iCloud. We’ll never quite be able to ditch pen and paper—now, we don’t feel pressured to.
This is an elegant little one-feature app, targeted at the bullet journal community. But I don’t understand why it exists, when other apps do more. Example: Evernote will scan your notes too, AND it has handwriting recognition for search. Also, the hashtag search is weak. Why can’t we search on more than one hashtag in combination? Oh, and the edge detection is not really edge detection. It’s manual live cropping, which is quite filly in practice. Other scanning apps do it better, and clean up the resulting scans better too. Sometimes less is more, but this is an example of less being less.
Best way to keep tabs on inspiration
Great move in making this a one-time purchase. Love the app. Hope it keeps getting supported. Maybe you should provide a donation option or additional features with in-app purchases so it can stand the test of time.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
