• PDF & JPG. Scan any printed or hand-written text and save scans to JPEG images or cross-platform PDF documents.

• BOOKSCAN TECH. Enable the Book mode in your camera and take snapshots of facing book pages. BookScan will split the opposing pages into two separate images and correct any distortions and lighting defects. It will then unbend any curved lines as if you pressed the book against the glass of a conventional scanner (Internet required, up to 100 pages per document).

• OCR. Recognize text (OCR) on scans in 193 languages (including Latin, Cyrillic, and CJK alphabets) and choose from among 12 output formats (docx, pdf, txt, and more), preserving the original document formatting such as lists, tables, and headers (Internet required).

• ANNOTATE SCANS. Discover our set of easy-to-use tools to modify your PDFs: add your signature or a text box, use highlighter, write with a pen, or conceal sensitive content with the redaction tool.


• PASSWORD ON PDF. Add a password for the image-only PDF files while exporting and sending via email.

• MULTIPAGE DOCS. Create, edit, and enhance separate images or large multi-page documents without any additional selection on viewfinder (up to 100 pages per document).

• AUTO-CAPTURE AND FILTERS. Excellent visual quality with auto-capture of page boundaries and advanced image filters, which processes scans in color, greyscale or black-and-white versions.

• BEST-SHOT PHOTO MODE. Select Best-shot button on viewfinder and FineScanner automatically chooses and processes the best of three images captured.

• BUILT-IN FILE STORAGE. Save scans inside app with tags and search capabilities

• SHARE & EXPORT. Send results by e-mail, save in cloud storages - iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Yandex.Disk, Evernote and more, transfer docs to your Mac or PC using iTunes sharing.

Excellent in most ways


Really a nice app, so I'm willing to put up with some quirks. One of them: since it snaps pix automatically, there are some misses. You can't delete these from a doc until after you've saved it, which is not intuitive. On the other hand, the advantages of auto scans far outweigh the disadvantages.

I use FineScanner to upload scans to Dropbox, which works great. The scans are excellent quality and you can tweak color, quality, and contrast.

I don't know how FineScanner compares with other scanner apps because it has always done what I needed it to do and done it well, so I haven't felt the need to look elsewhere.

Glad my coworker recommended this app


I am very pleased with this app and it came highly recommended from a coworker. (I have also downloaded the business card scanner). I have recommended this app to other people and also so convenient not to need to use a scanner. I can create and email PDF files no matter where I am, even in the middle of the desert. + 1 !!
I like the new features that have been added as well

Great Find


I’ve tried several photo/scanner apps. This is the best free app I’ve used. It does have unintrusive adds that appear at the bottom of the screen. It also offers in app purchase/upgrade to include optional OCR (optical character recognition) which works great but I’ve honestly only used a couple times in a pinch. I do recommend this app.
