Amazing Scanning App


I have been using this scanning app for over 3 years now and it has been of great help through so many things in my life. I remember when I first was looking for a scanning app and installed many to try out, and out of all of them, I can say this one was the best. Not only because it’s free but because it’s powerful. I recently made the decision to purchase the app finally and I am glad I did because it permits me to scan and be able to sync the scans to my iCloud or any other cloud service, which is great and definitely worth purchasing. I would recommend this scanning app for anyone interested in scanning documents on the fly as I do.

Best Scanning App I’ve ever used (and I’ve tried several)


...since 2008 with the invention of the App Store. I needed to use a phone scanner on the fly to scan some docs for business and also fax them—I saw that this app did both but was worried about trying a something new because I didn’t have time for any sort of learning curve. This was AMAZING, so intuitive, so seamless, and produced SUCH GREAT results. The integration with AirPrint etc. is flawless as well, and the ability to fax directly from the app just made this my go-to scanning app. I’m recommending it to everyone!

Solid Scanning App

I'm harsh on apps, but

It does all of the things it says it does and it does them well. I’m often in situations where I’m shuffling through paper documents, and Scanbot allows me digitalise them quickly. Everything gets uploaded to either my iCloud Drive or my Google Drive.

I debated between Scanbot Pro, Scanner Pro, and Genius
Scan. I have no regrets.

The paid version of Scanbot provides enough enhancements and features that it is absolutely worth the price tag.

The only thing I would change about it is the file size. It’s not a big deal, but high quality PDFs that could be 500KB are often five or six times that size. It makes it difficult to send them and download them through WhatsApp over slower connections, which is too often my case.
