Perfect Free Scanning App

Although no scan with your phone is going to be as good as one you make with an actual scanner, this gets it pretty close. It lets you adjust each corner as delicately as possible to get the best scan. It let me store as much as I wanted and I could use the wifi transfer feature to download everything on to my computer in one sitting. The wifi transfer feature was a little spotty as I had to keep refreshing my browser but it was still pretty convenient. You can also just email everything to yourself. This really is great for people who don't have access to a scanner or might want to scan something really quick. I used it to scan all of my timecards right before I had to submit them which was great.


Genius Scan is great for scanning things into the app itself, but once it's saved there you can't really do anything with it. It's incredibly frustrating. I've had to email documents from Genius Scan (even just to my own gmail account) 5 or more times before it actually works, if it even works at all. Also the app used your default email as the "sender" but I've had to go back into my gmail to make sure it was sent. It often just sits in your "drafts" folder and never gets sent unless you manually login to your email go to the drafts folder, open it up and click send. Again, that is only if the document even makes it to your default email. So if your needs are strictly to get a document saved and stored to your phone, it's great. Anything more than that may or may not work (more often not, in my experience) and is extremely frustrating.

Best free photo to PDF app out I've found

I need it for receipts mostly. Genius Scan lets me name, rotate, and switch color/black-n-white before emailing. I just noticed I can not only do multi-page docs, but I can move pages between docs. It even supports direct wifi sharing to another device via the other device's web browser. This is everything I need and more than I expected. I'm considering buying the pro version just to support the developer. The free version is awesome and that should be rewarded.
