• "Unbelievably sharp. The best app I’ve tried... The scan accuracy of SureScan mode is brilliant" (AppBank review, April 2010)
• "I’ve downloaded and purchased many fantastic apps, but Turboscan is the tool that has added the most value to my iPhone" (iosLawyer.com, Dec 2012)
• "Produces not a photograph of a document, but a very clear copier quality image, Having this app is like having a portable copier in your pocket" (TurboScan user)
TurboScan uses advanced fast algorithms to auto-detect document edges, straighten the documents (correct perspective), eliminate shadows and set a perfect contrast.
TurboScan boasts a powerful yet easy to use interface. Get instant one-tap brightness, rotation and color controls all on one screen!
TurboScan also offers SureScan, our proprietary scanning mode for sharper scans (especially useful in low-light conditions.) SureScan requires taking three pictures of the same document with the iPhone camera.
TurboScan's handy "Email to myself" feature lets you send documents to a predefined address, or even upload them to online storage sites like Evernote, with a single tap.
All processing happens on your iPhone, and the confidentiality of your data is never compromised (no Internet connection needed.)

• Compact attachments with adjustable size
TIPS ON SCANNING
• Make sure your document is flat and well lit.
• For best edge detection, include some margin around your document while shooting.
• Use flash in low light conditions, but avoid glare with glossy documents.
• Not recommended to use with iPod Touch 4 or iPad 2 camera (due to its low resolution).

Smaller fixes and improvements
Excellent!!! Forget coins for copier scanner in your pocket
I have been using this on my iPhone and iPad almost 2 years. It works great. At first I always used 3 picture "sure scan" because I used it in depositions or in hallway of courthouse to copy docs. I did not want to take chance they were not clear. I started using single shot camera to copy stuff from library ( massive savings since it is .15 cents a page) and the copies are still clear and you can zoom and read stuff on little screen on iPhone. You can easily email docs to your main computer. It is so easy to use I actually stopped using my office scanner for 1-3 page documents because this is easier. Highly highly recommended over others including pricey ones which I also tried. I use it to make copies of things before depositing checks, exhibits at depositions (save $1 per page) and hospital records (I go to hospital and review whole file and can quickly make copies of the records I need to review the case for medical malpractice - I used to have to order the whole file at $1per page and it usually cost over $1000 each time)
A great scanner replacement!
This app really works great for "scanning" (with the camera) receipts and other documents. The single-photo mode is typically good enough for receipts, but the 3x photo mode creates an image so clean and sharp (at least with the iPhone4 I'm using - I can't speak for iPods without autofocus cameras) people might think you actually used a scanner. The auto-crop feature does a pretty good job calculating the edges of your documents, but it automatically brings up a user-friendly crop tool in case you want to tweak it a little bit. You can adjust the brightness and select color or black & white for your images. If multiple pages, they can be combined into a single file. You can then choose from several options what to do with the output, such as send an email or save the image(s) to your phone. There are other options also, but I primarily use these. If you're looking for a scanner replacement for your iPhone, you must give this app a try!
TOP NOTCH SCANNING PRODUCT
..DEFINITELY WORTH THE PURCHASE! Highly recommend to anyone for personal or professional use.
I've been using the TurboScan app for abt 2yrs and couldn't b more pleased with it. LOVE that I can scan things such as my tax documents; which it then converts to a PDF; & then I can email them to my CPA,..all within minutes,..and without leaving my couch.
Overall functionality is excellent,..offering features such as "Send as PDF", JPEG, color option, darken or lighten color/b&w, scan multiple items and store under a single file name, excellent image/doc reproduction quality, unlike other scanners I've used, THIS ONE HAS NO ISSUES WITH inability to bring doc/img into focus. IT has nice & neat file storage,.. offers to snap 3 photos/scans and automatically chooses the best 1 of 3,..you can scan item and u can send (to yourself or other) right then and there via email,.. Also crop/zoom/adjust/ straighten before saving or sending,..can scan larger docs such as 11x17, WITHOUT losing quality of doc,...stores items seamlessly for easy access later on (I have some important docs stored for the last 2yrs),...
more functional/accessible/ reliable scanner than any bulky machine my company has in-house.
All updates, so far, have only improved or added to the functioning,..unlike some apps that crash or lose functionality after updating.
I have told many friends and encouraged all my coworkers to get this app. Worth the small change investment!
