  • Too sophisticated, now

    By TellerTrue
    Used this app three years in a row, one day each year. To send my signed IRS e-file authorization back to my accountant. This year the Genius upgrades have become too sophisticated for a simple fax. Today I’m hit with hoops to lunge thru: do I want .pdf files, text indexing, and have found the camera won’t just click the paper , nor offer me a spot to input the phone number to use. Grr ... I’ll have to use some othe app that has remained simple. Time wasted.
  • Good Quality and Convenient

    By Gradstudent21
    This app is incredibly helpful for scanning documents on the go. I am a graduate student and I have found this app to be extremely helpful at times where I need to scan a document but I don’t have access to a scanner. The scans are of the quality of a basic office scanner.
  • Terrible application

    By Cresci16
    It’s a horrible app... it doesn’t allow scan option manually. It continually only takes a photo. No where on app cam option to scan is given. If i do press the scan button it takes a picture instead of scanning. It scans at Will otherwise a picture is taken. Very poor app
  • Truly a great app.

    By nomanzaki
    It saves my time and and works great every time.
  • Handiest App I Have

    By SirManJone
    I use this app almost daily for work. I’d be lost without it. Very intuitive and simple to use. Highly recommend.
  • Easy Use

    By mbbrins
    This app has been easy to use and has been great for graduate school. It has also been helpful for other random things. It’s nice you can do batches of papers at a time or just one.
  • Updates make this app worse

    By Dustin R. from California
    The app was much more user friendly before the update.
  • This is a great app. When it works

    By Student Lauren
    This is a great app. When it works. I am a student and my teacher makes us use this app to turn in homework. For the beginning of the year it worked great but then it started working less and less to the point where I almost deleted it. I then completely stopped using the app. I tried using it again three days ago and it worked I was ecstatic. But today I tried to turn in homework using it but it wouldn’t work much to my dismay. In conclusion this is a good app if you have a backup plan and are okay if it doesn’t work all the time
  • My go to app

  • Awesome

    By Isnwidbdbsjsnn
    The best app ever! saved me time every time
  • Good app easier to use than competitors

    By mirobertsonUS
    I used this app for last 6 months and found it very easy to use and share PDF scanned docs (via email & what app) - I prefer to to camera scanner as does it force you to upgrade or run out of space
  • Genius scan Review

    By vish pal
    Genius scan App is good to use. We recommend to friends
  • Last update ruined app for me

    By 4AW
    Things were changed that were not broken. Such as the light theme and the ability to place two images one above the other instead of having to swipe between 2 screens for them. Support services were of no use. Didn’t really try to understand why it was no longer useful to me. Very disappointed after sooooo many users of being a staunch supporter and proponent of Genius Scan and Genius Scan +.
  • Fantastic iOS document scanner!

    By ttrq01
    I have been using Genius Scan for a few years as my primary document scanning App. It just works! Whether it’s a single page simple document or a multi-page complex document. In order to tweak or manipulate the scans or export, send, or store them almost anywhere, it’s easily done with just a few taps.

    See above
  • Easy peezy lemon squeezy

    By JadeSsx
    Installed it and as soon. As it opened up very intuitive in what to do next. I tapped the + sign and I was creating my first capture into a document. It asked for access to my camera and I confirmed it and away I went!
  • Fantastic PDF Creator

    By Hollywood_Muse
    So easy to use, so easy to export, seamless, the only thing you need to make PDFs with your phone.

    By NateMWP
    This app is the hardest thing to navigate. The images are terrible, if you work out of your car you can’t ever get a good image. Everything is real choppy! If you trying to simply export to Dropbox they try to charge you for it. All the other scanner apps allow you to do that for free!
  • Best scanner app

    By kailye1234
    Easy to use!
  • Utility app thet you need to have

    By akshayt80
    Earlier it used to detect A4 pages very quickly but not any more. But it is still a nice app to have.
  • Awesome

    By flex1970
    Awesome app, very user friendly thanks
  • Total Crap

    By Musicjunky1237
    Probably the worst scan app on the market. Can hardly detect a page, and they look like crap when it finally does.
  • Best scanning app

    By 1nursingStudent18
    It literally looks the exact same as scanning in paperwork. I cannot even explain how much I’ve used this through college and at my job. I haven’t had to scan anything since 2017 when I got the app.
  • Easy to use and very functional!

    By aq4me
  • Frequently used app!

    By Leisap
    I travel for work and use this to scan receipts, documents and keep myself organized! Love this app!
  • Not consistent

    By iibfhvbjj
    When it scans it’s great but then sometimes it doesn’t and you can send it through email
