What's New

Version 4.4.2

- Avoid triggering Auto-Export before letting you time to edit your document
- Fixed a couple crashes (sorry about that!)
- UX and copy tweaks


And if you missed the Genius Scan 4.4 release notes:

With this major release of Genius Scan, we are simplifying the scan flow and making your documents even more safe!

There was no good reason to distinguish single page documents from multi-page documents. The Batch Mode is now the only option for scanning.

Any document you start scanning is automatically saved in Genius Scan on your device. You don't even have to tap on "Save" for your document to be kept safe. If you don't want that document, you can simply delete it, but better err on the side of caution.

We've added support for Drag & Drop on iPad. You can easily drag a document out of Genius Scan as a PDF and drop any PDF or images in Genius Scan in order to import them.

- The photo albums are now sorted alphabetically when importing a picture.
- Some photo albums (such as "Screenshots") were not available when selecting a photo to Genius Scan. This is now history.
- The progress indicator is more granular for your Genius Cloud document synchronization, so even if you have a lot of documents you will get an idea of how much time left there is.
- Your device's screen won't go to sleep while you are scanning a large document.

- Fixed duplicate files created when exporting the same document twice to Google Drive
- When importing a PDF form, annotations are now properly imported as well!

This is the scanner app you MUST HAVE


I’ve been using Genius Scan for almost 2 years now, I rarely leave a review for any app, but I feel like this one deserves to be recognized. It is very easy to use, the clarity on the scanned document is great, there’s lots of customizable scanning settings you can choose from, you can also have it automatically upload to dropbox or Google Drive, I even was able to contact the developer about a simple change to the sorting of folders within Google drive by alphabetical order and day were able to accommodate the request in their next update which was extremely helpful. If you are on the go a lot like I am and not always at your desk this app is an absolute lifesaver. Even when I am in my office I don’t even use my copy scanner anymore because it takes too long and the quality on The genius scan app is just as good if not better, and it’s much quicker. Save yourself a ton of time and start using this app today.

Can’t complain...but...


There are literally like 40 different but yet completely the same Scanner. The subtle differences, if any, may be that you can have one “singular” thing that you can’t unlock on your favorite Scanner app. Like exporting or importing or saving for offline use, etc etc. I think it’s a waisted game some developers play when it comes to their scanner applications and the free to paid features that separate one app from the next. Honestly, I have no life,.so I’m one of the few that have time to try all of them and then slowly delete the ones I saw as more of a hassle, didn’t have that one thing (it can be whatever you need it to be depending on ones needs). But I’m gonna stop here bc I’m really just chatting randomly, but this “Genius Scanner” is not half bad, different maker, app color and logo, same But I will give it about an B+! If u got this far in my review, your cool.,.i like you. Sooo thank you Apple, this was a complete fun and somewhat enjoyable review.

Easy shortcut to scanning


I love how easy it is to scan a file with Genius Scan. When your personal scanner or work scanner isn't working or is overrun with other jobs, this is an awesome alternative. You can rotate pages, crop them, rearrange pages, and even convert from black-and-white to "photo," which scans your image over exactly as it appeared when you took the scan ("picture"). The only downside to this app is that you won't immediately receive your scan(s) if you're sending it/them via email; in fact, mine don't appear in my inbox until 24-48 hours later. I'm unsure if that's a wifi issue for me or not, but that happens to me no matter what wifi I'm using. But, overall, I would definitely recommend this app!
