Editors’ Notes

Bringing analog documents into your digital world is a breeze with Scanbot. This robust and intuitive document scanner automatically captures pages of text, aligns them perfectly, and saves them as PDFs to a wide variety of cloud-storage services. With the Scanbot Pro upgrade, powerful optical character recognition lets you easily search and copy text, putting you one step closer to a paperless future.

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.

UPDATE: The new version has taken a perfect tool and made it better. The new file naming is fast, flexible, and intuitive. I scan things for many reasons. I can now easily include the receipt reason as part of the file name.

Best scanning app


Overall, this is my favorite scanning app. It’s my go-to first choice. Scanbot is 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 white background scanning capability doesn't seem to really work all that well (at least when last I tried). 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. iCloud Drive sync issues aren't really something that developers have a lot of control over.

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 more recent testing, I found that it's either been vastly improved or I was just really lucky with it for a change.
