***** My requirement was simple: make a picture of a document look like it was scanned and then email that document. This app did that very easily. There was no learning curve at all and the end product was clean and professional looking. (DrDaveVA)

***** I needed to get good pics of documents and receipts. I tried 8 or 9 of the so-called "top scanner apps" and the were all mediocre at best. I usually have trouble keeping the iPad steady for detailed receipts and this has great stabilization. It also captures really well in lower light. Super easy to send to cloud storage (box, Dropbox and other I think). That part is so much faster and simpler than other apps. (Bookstore_Annie)

If I could give -1 star I would!!!

This new update is BAD. Now I can hardly scan any document. Always blurry. Takes me ages to get one right.
You need to fix that update.

Horrible update

After last update my 6s+ stopped make clear shots with your app.....make smth

Was Good...Until This Update

Whyyyyyyy do people always have to ruin things with awful updates?! I have some serious beef with the new SharpScan app..& as of October 14, 2016, I have completely stopped using it.

First of all, the flash just mine-as-well not even be there anymore. Why? Because it doesn't even work properly now. Pictures taken with "flash" really just look like they were taken with "Night Mode" on (that setting which BARELY lightens up dim-lit environments). Maybe the camera shutter timing is off from the flash, such that it is only capturing the picture during the tail end of the flash while it is still weaning away. That's honestly what it looks like to me; just a really pathetic, wimpy flash unlike the iPhone's actual illuminative flash. idek

I could go on about the minor step-backs in the updated app's UI (ie. the whole new SmartCamera interface, which stinks), but my REAL beef lies in the fact that SharpScan now compresses every picture like crazy...

The one thing that caused me to get SharpScan over ALL the other digital scanner apps was the fact that the 'Black&White' option yielded quite possibly the clearest scanned picture available to Apple consumers. I don't care if it makes the file size one or two megabytes bigger. I was in it for the quality more than anything else. Yet, with the latest update, every new picture is compressed like crazy. I have the "JPEG Quality" setting all the way up (to 'Large', which doesn't even really make sense in terms of quality but that's besides the point here), yet I still notice a significant loss of quality from the original capture; ESPECIALLY if you choose to import a picture from your camera role.

Let me be honest here, SharpScan.. Maybe only like 1% of people actually care about compression, but for that 1%, it really is a let down when we can't use your app without it compressing our picture. At the very least, include an option to create an image with lossless quality. There is NO need to completely obliterate this from the app, even if only a small amount of people are aware of the difference it makes. I went to you guys for quality, something you excelled in, yet now that is virtually nonexistent in SharpScan thanks to your update. Word of advice: Don't remove functionalities from your app just because most people may not know the difference, because you will really upset those of us who count on these features to give us results we can't find anywhere else on the app store.

Thoroughly disappointed, and I hope this is addressed soon. Otherwise, I cannot find a use for this new "updated" app...

[PS: I still have uncompressed images in the app from before it was updated, one of which I had imported from my camera role. In the app, the file size for this image is 1.69MB. After the update, I imported the same initial picture from my camera role, and it is now 84.23KB. And guess what..? The quality is much worse than before if you zoom in even slightly. Just wanted to give some proof of this to those of whom have made it this far into my review..]
