Doc Scan - Multipage OCR scanner to export your scans anywhere
By Sparkling Apps BV
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Doc Scan turns your iPhone or iPad into a multipage scanner for documents, receipts, notes, whiteboards, and other text.
With Doc Scan, you can quickly scan your documents and store or share them as multipage PDF files.
Doc Scan boasts a powerful yet easy to use interface. No need to go into deep menus, most day to day functions are right there on the main screen.
Doc Scan can export to the cloud in PDF format. Share your documents with anyone. But no internet connection is needed for the scanning and OCR processing, this all happens on your iPhone or iPad only. Security guaranteed for confidential documents.
Doc Scan uses optical character recognition (OCR) on your documents so you can do a simple, but powerful text search on them afterwards. Storing your documents within Doc Scan is practical and secure, using our library feature.
DOC SCAN FEATURES:
• Document naming, storage inside the app and search
• Multipage editing: reorder, delete and add pages
• Email document as PDF
• Printing via AirPrint
• Share documents directly to the cloud in PDF format
NOTE: The built-in OCR in Doc Scan is performed offline (no use of internet required anywhere). But it is limited, just for regular printed documents. It's main purpose is for locating keywords in documents and searching accordingly.
If you have internet access and don't mind uploading your document, you can use the upload link to perform excellent OCR online.

Further enhanced performance
Bad OCR is my fault??
If this app would tell me when I took a good picture for OCR, I might do better. As it was, my phone took a blurry picture that I didn't know about until after I had scanned a lot of pages. And there's no dynamic range adjustment if lighting or page contrast is less than optimal. Sure, there's flash, but it always washes the page out. And cropping doesn't work that well - it likes to focus on standalone pictures instead of text, even when the white page is on a dark brown table. And the crop box corners are really hard to grab on an iPhone 5.
Three stars though because the UI workflow wasn't too bad, although clearly not designed for scanning more than 10 pages in a sitting since too much manual tweaking is needed.
