  • Emails with attachments disappear

    I have liked TurboScan but was sending one scanned image as a PDF email attachment (it did it in the app) and wrote a long email in phone when a text came through and automatically popped me out of the email and when I went back to it, there was no save of the email in progress in my app. And now I have so start over. Fail.
  • Mobile scanning

    By robert.punzul
    This is one of my favorite apps. Expense reports was a hassle, but now I can get things done on the go. Here is the real benefit, this app is the best scanner ever, even better then my Epson scanner. Clear adjustable, color or b/w, email yourself or other all just made very easy, and the scanned product looks professional. I recommend this product without hesitation to all out there.
  • Organize where?

    By Jeff-1956
    I bought this highly rated app and was simply shocked to find that there's no way to organize your scanned pages. There are no "folders" or "create folder" type of hierarchy so I suppose I can expect a chaotic diasaster of countless scattered pages I've scanned all on ONE screen. This is like finishing my laundry and throwing it all the closet floor when done, having to dig through it all later to find something. I expected to being able to save my receipts, for example, in a "Receipts" folder that I create - NOT gonna happen. Do you expect us to go off to other apps where we sent these scans and organize them there? This almost exceptional scanner app has been sabotaged by having no structure for your scan results.
  • Emails take too long to receive.

    By h_dunn
    I like this app. The only thing I dislike about it, is that it takes forever to send an email using this app. I’ll send one with an attachment, but the person I’ve emailed, hasn’t gotten it until hours later or the next day.
  • I absolutely love this app!

    By Cwr360
    I have been using this app for several years now. I have not been disappointed! I love it!
  • Awesome!!

    By RudiGo
    I’ve been using it for years and it gets the job done every time.
  • Very Clear Copies

    By Delaportilla
    This is s great app. The copies come out very clear. This has save me time from going into office to scan a document. I do it from my iPhone.
  • Just works ! Simple, Convenient and reliable

    By Scwcc
    Can't say much more. It works and is dependable. Great way to keep from losing paper and receipts. Have receipts for non profit org... Scan original recipes and email to finance office immediately From anywhere I can draft quick handwritten drafts of information, graphics or plans, and distribute a PDF to someone for immediate comment, review, or feedback. Would never want to be without it. Im so glad I don't still try to do this with just a straight camera photo. However. Would like a process where from s photo input, an email screen shot directly van output into turbo scan as a pdf
  • Great app

    Thanks to a colleague for recommending TurboScan’s smooth, easy tools. This tax season was the easiest one yet with all of my receipts easily accessible for multiple businesses, and it makes my book draft look real and crisp!!!!
  • Suggestion

    By knb
    I love Turbo scan, I’ve been using it for years now. I am also using the turbo fax app. There are several other scanning apps out there, but I still like this one the best because it gives the option to save as a photo image so it gives me the most flexibility when saving things and using them in other apps (like apps that let you change PDFs). But I have a few suggestions. 1. Is there an option for auto scan? I’ve noticed that adobe scan has that option and it is extremely handy, especially for people with hand disabilities. I recently had joint replacement on both of my thumbs and I have the iPhone plus, which is challenging to hold even with two good thumbs, but impossible with no useful thumbs. So, it’s extremely challenging to hold the phone and hit the button to take the picture/scan. But in Adobe it does it automatically. So I’ve had to scan in Adobe and then save to TurboScan. 2. This is my major request. I have upwards of 175 documents that I’ve scanned in. Organization is my issue. I do save them to “my files” in iCloud. Or sometimes in Dropbox. Because I can make folders and albums etc. But I want to keep them in TurboScan as well. I need to be able to group my docs by subject. (My son’s stuff from school. My stuff for work. Etc) So, please consider adding albums and folders like is available with the iPhone files app or Dropbox etc. Thank you for listening. Best, Kristin
  • Awesome.

    Insanely useful to be able to keep all kinds of docs in my phone. Done hunting for stuff in my desk. Thanks for inventing this!
  • My "go-to" app for photos!

    By 1Chad
    My "go-to" app for photos! Clarity of the three merged photos is wonderful.
  • Highly recommend!

    By BC J. Stop
    With having a side business, along with an administrative position at my full time job, scanning documents and emailing is an often occurrence. I love the ability to be able to immediately photograph, scan, and send information. Very easy to use and I highly recommend it!

  • Best thing since sliced bread

    By Shuuuushsth
    Really. It’s a must. Just get this app.
  • Owner

    By DC Anderson
    I love using this app for ease of use and clarity. I have all my employees use it as well because the other apps that use a “scanner” is not any where close to as clear or organized as TurboScan. I really love how it allows multi page PDF scanning and emailing. Makes billing so much faster.
  • Love this!

    By Dr. Barbie
    I have wasted money on scanners that were cumbersome and hard for me to figure out. Plus I’d have to store it somewhere. With this app, you will never need a scanner at all. As a physician, I can fax documents to other physicians and it looks just as good and official as though it was from a screen. I am able to run an office without a land line! (I use a separate app to send fax)
  • Never have to use a real scanner again!

    By xtinamako
    I use this on a daily basis for work and it’s so amazing!! I couldn’t ask for a better way to scan. This truly is a HUGE help.
  • What a life saver!

    By EducatorRN
    I travel frequently for work and need to get documents in to management quickly. With TurboScan I can get it taken care of no matter where I am. The documents are easy to open and read for the recipient. This has made me more efficient!
  • Could be way better

    By begayzer
    More options to scan documents. Genius scan you can get documents to look perfect unlike this app where you gotta hold your tongue just right. What this app needs is a magic scanner, and more tools to do color and get documents to look clean. Every time I scan an item it looks jacked up.

  • So useful

    By historyprof45
    I use this for archival research and it’s been a game changer. I’m much more efficient in the archives now and my material is much more organized from the start.
  • Excellent app.

    By bbates1990
    I am pleased with TurboScan. I have scanned numerous parts manuals that are actually very thick. I keep all of my receipts handy with this app. I also use it to scan documents that had to be filled out and signed and then emailed to whom ever. I have only had an issue one time in the passed, and that was while I was in the middle of scanning in a rather large manual I was just ejected off of the app for what ever unknown reason and all my progress was just gone leaving me to start over. This happened maybe 3 times then I gave up. I will say that I have no had this issue since. Perhaps it was a bug that popped up after a lengthy Time using the app that has now been resolved. I also use TurboFax as well and couldn’t be happier with both applications!
  • User friendly

    By jim carannante

  • This has replaced my scanner

    By nick blut
    A colleague told me about this app at a board meeting and I have been using it in lieu of my scanner. It’s very accurate and professional on the receiving end.
  • Camp Fire

    By Glitter Grammy
    Our home burned in the camp fire in Northern California. With no computer it was difficult keeping up with the paperwork just using my phone. My son told me to get this app because I would be signing many insurance papers. I did and I don’t know what I would have done without it. We purchased a home 1800 miles from our home and this app allowed me to receive sign rescan and return so our home could be purchased with out us being physically present. Thank you so much for a wonderful easy to use application.
  • Slow Email Feature

    By SCCinSC
    Everything works well except the email feature. I typically have to wait several hours no matter which email account I target.
  • Keeps impressing

    By RaiLakai
    I have had this app for years and I always know it’s there yet every time I use it I’m impressed even more. Today I was stuck needing to send an eleven page document to a newly reopened government office. I used my phone from about two feet away but you can read everything. Not only that but when my husband and I went up to meet the in-laws I scanned all the pictures of his late parents that he didn’t have. That came out beautifully. 10 for 10 would by again
  • Most useful app I have!

  • A fantastic tool to have in your pocket

    By FalconOwl
    Turbo scan is a fantastic tool to have in your pocket. Since it was recommended to me A few years ago I have used it countless times to capture documents on the go and be able to send them to people in a PDF format or as a picture. It only takes a minute to figure it out and it is very versatile. I recommended it to a half dozen other people and use it frequently and very appreciative.
  • Fabulous.

    By CKral1978
    I love the handiness and convenience of this tool for my business!!
  • Awesome scanner on the go!

    By *Sui*
    Great little scanner for when I can’t access one. Has the option of scanning multiple pages by taking a picture. Highly recommend the portability. Not the best for scanning long documents with many pages, but otherwise great
  • 10 Stars!

    By Jasmin925
    Can’t live or work without it. It’s a real life saver.
  • Best $5.99 I've spent all year!

    By PipGoddess
    I'm a Realtor & had a ton of files to scan to pdf's. It would have cost 50c a copy at Staples - approx $300. I read the reviews of a few apps & this had a majority of good ones so I took the plunge. So happy I did. I'm not techy enough to provide a pro critique on the nitty gritty workings of the app, but it did the job I needed to & it's proving to be a very valuable tool in my app portfolio. A big thank you to the developer/s.
  • Simply indispensable!!

    By Scarletknitter
    One of the first 5 apps everyone ought to upload on a mobile phone. Much more practical than my home scanner.

    The best app I’ve ever downloaded
