What's New in Version 4.0.6


- Add warning when there isn't enough disk space to scan
- Fix thumbnails not loading in photo picker
- Fix VoiceOver accessibility in photo picker
- Fix crashes when generating PDF files with very large pages
- Fix 5.5" iPhone UI layout in landscape mode
- Fix bug preventing Genius Scan from importing docs when not launched in background
- Add advanced settings to enable export push notifications


At the core of Genius Scan is our scanning technology and we've improved it once again. Our document detection is now much more accurate (like 10x!) and faster. It's actually so fast that it can run in real-time, and Genius Scan now autodetects your documents.

With the Magic mode, Genius Scan automatically triggers the photo once it's stable enough.

Batch scanning let you scan tons of pages in a couple seconds. Genius Scan is the fastest solution to digitize 20 pages and save them to the cloud!
You can also import multiple scans from gallery (gallery batch import)

You can now edit the cropping and the enhancement applied to your scans after the fact. This means that if you only notice 5 days later that you cropped out an important part of the document, you can still fix that.

Adding a tag is much faster and requires less taps. You can now filter your documents with multiple tags (eg. "expenses" and "travel") in the main search field. No need to open the side menu anymore.

You will notice our redesign, still familiar yet cleaner and more intuitive.

That's a feature for power user, but you might be one without knowing it. Smart document names let you name your documents with flexibility.

You can now create multiple smart document names and you will choose which one to apply when saving. Patterns can be such as [date]-Expenses or [latitude]-[longitude]-measurement.

Smart Document Name can include a prompt when saving the document. Say you scan a document for a customer, you can use a [customer name prompt]-file smart name, and when you save the document you will be able to enter the customer name in the text field.

- Ability to view files you uploaded in the Upload History panel.
- Auto-Upload can be turned on over 3G in the settings.
- Added support for shared folders in OneDrive.
- Per page print format (now the A4/Letter/Legal/etc. settings apply to each page independently and not to the entire document).
- Wifi Sharing accessible in the Upload History panel.
- Page orientation is now automatically detected from the aspect ratio of your scan, so the settings for page orientation has been removed.

- Fixed issue with the encoding of PDF keywords and title.
- Fixed issue of black line on the side of exported scans.
- Fixed dimension of documents with the "fit" page size, they are now of reasonable printing size.
- Fixed issue with tags not sent to Evernote with Auto-Upload

Great App

This is a great app. It does what it says it does, and does it pretty well. It's a quick way for me to scan work documents in the field and "fax" them back to the office with my phone. The scans usually come out pretty good, depending on your lighting. They're clear and crisp and don't look much different than a scan from a real scanner. I doubt anyone notices the difference in the documents I send. The various options to send / share documents is also very handy, making it easier to share with a larger number of people. A great app for scanning documents via smartphone!

App works very well but...

App is a life saver and worked very well. For some reason with the new update it highlights whatever document you are scanning in a orange box. Which is great because you can see where it's going to crop and is accurate. The issue is after it takes the picture it still needs to be recropped. Even though the orange box previewing where the crop will be was accurate.

Great app for work

I use this app for sending documents, bill of ladings, and waybills for work and documents for the ham radio net and club I belong to.
This app works great with the new upgrades; it works faster, smoother, and lot better to organize and send docs. Love using it. Highly recommended for those on the go to send items.
