Customer Reviews

Best scanning app

Overall, this is the best scanning app. It's quick, nice-looking, and handles multiple use cases. The border detection is quite good, and smart naming and the ability to auto-upload to cloud services are both really nice.

The new white background scanning capability doesn't seem to really work all that well. However, this is not a huge deal, as previous to this, I just got used to putting on a contrasty surface to scan anyway.

My only one real complaint is that the iCloud sync causes documents to sometimes reappear after I delete them. It appears to be tied to killing the app too soon after deletion. However, iCloud Drive is something that developers can't really control, and Apple have some work to do in that area.

It's obvious that the developers of ScanBot made user experience a priority. And that's what makes this my default scanning app (along with the excellent scanning accuracy of course).

I do wish it would allow single page scans to be saved as JPEG without having to save to camera roll, as Evernote Scannable can do.

In the past, I found the OCR to be completely useless, but in testing tonight, it's either been vastly improved, or I was really lucky.

A comprehensive and complete tool scanning

When I first installed ScanBot I just needed a tool for capturing receipts in a user friendly way. What I ended up was much more. This app auto detects when the receipt or document is in fully in the camera view and then takes the picture. This app talks to every cloud storage system including OneDrive. It is flexible in how you name documents and manage them. It is visually beautiful, flexible, stable, and easy to use. This tool makes travel, purchases tracking, and expense reports much easier. The pro features are also worth the in app purchase.

Good, but one fatal flaw: background uploading.

App is wonderful, and the paid one is a superb replacement for a full scale scanner for someone on the go.

But the uploading feature is *severely* lacking. It's slow. Scanbot is incapable of uploading text-recognition-friendly scans in the background. If I ever I lock my phone or exit the app, not only does will the app cease to upload, the upload starts over once I open it back up. It's crippling.

If it's technologically infeasible to continuously upload in the background, it would help for Scanbot to "bookmark" its upload progress or at least securely pause.
