- Pre-configure the FTP export
- Pre-configure the email recipients

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!
Great for reframing
While traveling I take pictures of information boards and pictures of paintings for later enjoyment. This app allows me to straighten up and reframe these images. I do prefer an earlier version that did not attempt to reframe the image as you took the picture. This may work fine when you're just taking pictures of flat images on a table but not for the way our use this app. This earlier version would do a great job of automatically reframing a image imported from the camera roll. I hope they will reinstall this feature on a future version. This could give us the choice of how to use this app.
Works well, but there's a better one
Tried this out. Definitely is a nice app and works well. However, I find that my Scanner Pro works better in regard to taking the photo of the document. In one test, I used a business card on a dark surface, the edge of my laptop. So there was the keyboard visible in the viewfinder and the lighter colored wood of my desk. Genius Scan had troubles finding the card's borders and never did take the shot. Scanner Pro by Readdle (you can try out the free version) took the shot immediately.
Genius Scan has great features. The paid version is even better. Again, however, I think Scanner Pro is much better and it is priced $3 less than Genius Scan Plus.
