Great Easy Inexpensive Scanning App

This is a great app for quick scanning of photo's, documents, printed material into a PDF that you can immediately email to someone (all of that is free). You use the camera to take the picture (or bring it in from a file). For less than $10, you can upgrade to a version that will upload your PDF to Dropbox and do other kinds of 'sharing.' The upgrade in the past year included a 'batch' scanning mode that takes a string of pictures without asking you between every picture/scan what you're trying to do; much appreciated enhancement! Also this new enhancement seems to take a better picture more often.

I also like how you can adjust/modify a picture (including orientation) and even move a scan/image between Genius Scan documents.

I often use this to create a PDF of a handsigned document, or to 'scan' (via picture taking) of sheet music that I then move over (via Dropbox) to iBooks so I can play piano from my iPad wherever I happen to be.

Have not tried other similar app's, but I'm very, very happy with this one - and have been using it for a few years now.


What more can I add to the title, other than if you're looking for an app that can scan and make your docs look like you ran it through a professional scanner (not to mention organize, email, and share them) then look no further than this one. This app is on an update cycle like none other I've seen (out of MANY), and they're actually quite substantive (not merely "bug fixes"), and they take feedback seriously! I recommend it to all my friends and business colleagues.

Great for keeping receipts!

I do a lot of traveling for business. Along the way, I collect a lot of receipts which have to be submitted later on an expense report. I have always carried an extra folder in my briefcase that fills up with these receipts. You can imagine how messy this gets.

Now, at the start of each new month, I create a folder for that month's receipts on Google Drive. I scan the receipts as I get them. Two clicks, and they are safely in the cloud.

This practice has simplified my EOM expense accounting *enormously*.
