  • Incredible!

    By HaoleLove
    This is one of the best apps of all time! It’s absolutely incredible. It’s super easy to use and saves a lot of time. Best money ever spent (and I never buy apps). Thank you, to the developer, for what you do!
  • Absolute Junk

    By Bogiebox
    This program DOES NOT WORK. If you try to access your photos IT decides what photos it will convert, not what you want converted. I have images of pure text that it will not allow me to access. So, I printed the pages out and scanned it. NOTHING. It does nothing but convert it to an uneditble PDF. THERE IS NO TEXT CONVERSION. If there is, it’s hidden deep inside the program an you have to get a degree to lean how to use it. This is a total waste of money.
  • Better Stability

    By bobbyleejones
    I raised my rating to “4” since the latest version is a lot more stable. My “4 rating” comes from the fact that I use other scanners, such as Microsoft OneNote, for scanning stuff, and they’re pretty good too. I use this app for making PDF’s for eink readers. This app would be more useful to me if it could create small pdf files with png images of a certain dpi (and size) and a specific number of indexed colors (grayscale colors) using nearest neighbor interpolation. Being able to erase shadows would be nice as well.
  • How do I send this as a gift?

    By Rockrabbit45
    I’m needing to send this app to my colleagues as a gift. I know if they try the app they will gift it to others. So how can I send this app as a gift? Thank you.
  • Nothing exceptional for a paid app

    By sojohnlike
    It works fine for single sheets of paper but for anything like books or textbooks the auto detect doesn’t work so expect to align the edges manually
  • Stupid decision

    By sam_modi333
    Y would you guys take out iCloud service without informing your customers? Will never recommend you guys... this is stupid... just to check my previous doc. I have to login to iCloud...
  • Do not buy

    By Rykaroni
    There is a glitch with iPhone facial recognition where it takes about 6 or 7 swipes up to unlock the phone if you happened to lock your iPhone with the app still open. I’ve contacted customer support with this issue but there seems to be a lack of product updating or support for the latest phones
  • Doesn’t have a recycled bin featrue

    By MarkH25
    This app’s function is okay, and works good. the user interface is kind of confusing when doing group documents, ocr contents can’t be copied separately and the delete document delete the whole thing instead of the page.
  • Best of breed

    By Aviris
    I’ve had several other “scanner” apps on my phone, but I kept coming back to this one for its features and ease of use. I particularly like the way it allows you to have some fine grained control over the scan area and color depth after you capture each image (or you can just leave it alone - it does a great auto job, but if you only want one paragraph the manual adjustment comes in handy). Plus good support and updates make this app just about perfect for digital document capture.
  • New Update Doesn’t Work

    By DasAllasIstDeutschland
    This new update cannot open at all.
  • The best and easiest

    By PureRainX
    I do keep trying new scanners, just to keep up, but this one just nails it.
  • PDFs from cam made easy

    By JayJay
    I’m a strong proponent of this app... & they keep making it better (THANKS TO YOUR TINKERERS!). I’ve used this for business mostly, but recently shot the collected pictures gathered at a loved ones funeral... sharing the greater experience in one compressed file was much easier with those that could not attend.
  • Greatest app on the AppStore

    By Eogarcia3
    This app is a must have for all. Teachers,Students,Realtors,Lawyers,Parents, Business Owners, etc..... Worth the money .. excellent work to the developers
  • Has to re-download all of my files after EVERY update

    By HeRatesApps
    This is a good app with one huge annoying flaw. After EVERY update, the app needs to re-download all of my previous scans from my iCloud. This is pretty annoying and, after a couple years of scans, takes quite a bit of time. I don’t understand why the app cannot cache the previous scans between updates.
  • They submit your personal info to 3rd parties

    By iphonereviewer#2
    I've seen several reports from reliable sources that this app sends your GPS location data to a 3rd party tracker, Amplitude. I will not use this app and have advised friends & customers not to purchase it, and if they did, get a refund from Apple. It's pretty slimy to do this, Readdle.
  • Creditable

    By Gencosays
    These folks support what they sell, this is a wonderful tool to have, can’t say enough about it.... Get it, great value.
  • Always my go to scanning app

    By Chriss29
    Very reliable , high quality and trusted for all my business needs. Thanks for the constant updates !!
  • Distortion!!!

    By william.lw.w
    The document has a big distortion when I save it to letter size. Looks like it does not support zoom in/out and keep the same aspect ratio.
  • Works great for me!

    By Celtic-Frontier
    Takes great images of documents. It converts documents to text very nicely. You can also export your images onto your Mac computer. I’m all around very happy with it.
  • SO annoyed I wasted money on this

    By srhxo82
    I only purchased this app bc I need to scan documents and convert them to typed. I saw this app does that and after seeing great reviews I figured it would recognize the text. It didn’t and all it was, was gibberish.
  • Disappointed

    By AJRX01
    I was terribly disappointed after using the app. Doesn't seem like anything shown in the pics. Couldn't even recognize clearly printed text. Text recognition was the main reason I paid for this app and haven't got any good results. I could only use it to take pictures and convert it to pdf which I can do with my iphone itself.
  • Hate this latest update

    By ptcaparas
    Ugh. The latest update mess it up. Now the app won’t send the scanned file even a one piece document.
  • Best Ever

    By Drawde99
    This is the only scanning app I will ever need. After using Scanner Pro I have deleted all other scanning apps. I have tried several others. Not much to say, it works perfectly.
  • Ugh the new update 😫

    By DaTruth17
    I really liked this app until the new update. Now it doesn’t automatically take the picture, you actually have to press. (Now that I’m writing this, it sounds stupid. It’s not that bad to have to press the button but it was just more convenient and WAY quicker before)
  • Do not buy a bad app like this

    Please stop selling this app and return money back to me. It is worse app. Using camera taking pictures of documents is better quality than using this app.
  • Outstanding

    By Rust96
    Truly worth all five stars. One of the most used and excellent performing apps I have. Works equally as well on iPhone or iPad.
  • Great tool

    By Charles J Pfohl
    If you have docs that need to be uploaded to a PDF this is the tool for you. Yes I call it a tool on my iPhone that makes my work flow. Charles
  • I like this app, but...

    By djt12#!
    This app is very useful when it’s functional. Unfortunately, the app on my iPhone closes quickly or fails to load. This issue has increased recently.
  • I can’t connect to OneDrive

    By Qinkki
    It always reminds me of wrong username or password, and then exits,however,how do I input my username or password
  • Magical

    By Icerio22
    What kind of black magic is this
  • AirDrop?

    By bleurrrrrggg
    How to use airdrop? Also, confusing auto/manual button. If it says ‘auto’ does that mean I’m in auto mode, or I need to click it to engage auto mode. Vice versa, if it says ‘manual’, am I currently in manual mode or do I need to click it to switch to manual mode?
  • Better every time!

    By 134234wewewewewew
    These guys work hard to continually improve this awesome scanning app. So intuitive and super reliable. Great work!
  • 👍🏼

    By Justi Lowe
    It’s the best scanner app I’ve found so far!! But I wish you could share with WhatsApp and airdrop..
  • Office Lens does much better

    By BorisXu98
    Very poor performance
  • This app is awful - no auto save after scan

    By Suckituber
    I have so many expense receipts missing because I would scan them and then close the app because I was in a rush traveling for work and moving about. If you don’t click “save” after the app has successfully scanned a receipt, it won’t save it! I have lost so many receipts because of this and do not recommend this app. They need to fix this!!
  • Great app

    By Just1act
    This comes in handy if you don’t have access to a copier or full size scanner. It eliminates paper clutter, which is my biggest downfall when it comes to organization. Easy sharing too.
  • Loses Scans and Bad Backup Features

    By Naruwan
    Paying user of the app for years now. Utility of the tool is great- I always am inclined to click on it when I need a scan. However: I have lost scans on 3 separate occasions now. Where I’ve scanned hundreds of files in the last year, I currently only have 5 files showing right now. I have not changed phones. Also, syncing to cloud drives is buggy. Creates random new folders repeatedly. What good is a good scan app if you cannot trust it to keep your files? I have simply lost trust in this tool. No matter how good the functions are, if you can’t figure out a way to keep the data on the phone/in the app, it is UNUSABLE. Therefore it deserves 1 star.
  • Problem

    By hector23@
    Can you fix the problem , I can’t upload to one drive , it was working good
  • Fax

    By Land7
    Seria bueno añadirle el fax
  • Now 5 stars

    By ctillerjr
    I had given scanner pro only 4 stars because I was switching back-and-forth with TurboScan. Turbo scan allowed you to crop better without moving multiple points. Now with the new update on scanner pro they have fix this challenge and I have DELETED Turbo scan
  • This is a life saver!

    By bigoceandave
    I have to say that this app has made my life easier. I often have to scan, sometimes 100s of documents, and instead of feeding them one at a time or using a balky hand scanner using this app streamlined the process and cuts down my time scanning by more than half.
  • Privacy issue with camera & photos

    By Púca
    New review: I used to love this app, but now it seems it needs to get too many permissions. All I want to do is scan (& sometimes OCR) images *I* choose. I don’t want to give it access to the camera, and I don’t want it automatically scanning my photos library. If you turn those features off, THERE IS LITERALLY NO WAY TO OPEN A PHOTO. (The reason is that the “open photos library” buttons are hidden in the Radar screen and the Camera screen, so if you turn those off, there’s no separate Open Photo Library button.) What you should be able to do is pick one or more photos in the Photos app, tap the share button, tap Open With Scanner Pro, and have those photos opened in 1 document in Scanner Pro. That would be super easy and maintain all your privacy. I will start to look for another app that respects my privacy. Old review: Everything you'd ever want. Oftentimes when rating apps, you're left to ponder why a certain obvious feature was left out. But this app is missing nothing. It's easy to learn, easy to use, syncs with iCloud and Dropbox, and has really great output. What's not to love?
  • Bad Dropbox Integration

    By Jebus91
    Have a lot of sync errors with Dropbox , often crashes because of this I believe.
  • Tired of this app

    By A stunned customer
    Takes way too long to send pdfs, took over 24 hours to email a PDF. Do not use in a pinch, if you're low on time.
  • OCR

    By JP 12387
  • A suggestion

    By imhalfswede
    I’m using Scanner Pro to organize my very messy music files. I would love to be able to copy a file and place it in a folder or make a playlist to use when I perform.
  • NOT PRO APP. Need to add Fold inside Fold feature

    By lilmikeinfiniti
    Need to be able to add Fold inside Fold feature and it will be a 5 star app. Until than they should take Pro off from the name of the app. It just a nice simple scanner app still.
  • Saved scans all disappeared

    By robbietre
    I've used the app for about 2 years. Today all my files saved in the app disappeared. This was the second time it happened, and this time really hurts. Makes it worse since the app seems to have a hard time backing up to Dropbox. Some of the files remain in Dropbox, even though they do not appear in the app. Strange.
  • Great app

    By Zanderz1010
    All around good app
