    I have used several PDF file conversion tools. I have used the native one in Apple notes. I have also used the native one in Microsoft OneDrive cloud services, because they also allow you to scan multiple pages without stopping, amongst others, including Microsoft Lens and others. I do not know why I have passed on downloading this one before, but I did. So I didn’t think I need to download this, but I was bored and I did. And I’m very happy. My grandmother is 88, and she just had to go to a nursing home, and I am having to scan all of her documents, insurance cards and you name it. And thank goodness I downloaded this application because it gets it right on the first time. It’s free, and ad free, and I’m very grateful that I downloaded it and thankful to the programmers at Adobe for making it free, and simple enough to handle (what would otherwise be kind of considered as “big jobs”) what most people would ever need. Verdict — simple, free, user friendly, and requires no jumping through hoops, etc. works for me! Thank you Adobe.

  • Edge-finding and focussing (spelling intentional) capability less than perfect Jul 22, 2019

    By Vanessa123456780
    I chose to ignore Adobe’s prompting that I upgrade to AdobeScan from the scanning feature included with the Adobe PDF app for a while, because when I’d tried it, it had “grabbed” the document it was supposed to scan as if on some sort of fast-forward setting and estimated the location of the document’s edges incorrectly. It also didn’t take enough time to get a properly-focussed (spelling intentional) image. I’d realized that I needed to figure out how to perform the scan manually, in order to get it precise enough, or find another scanning app. During a later attempt, I was relieved when I was prompted to disable the psychotic-seeming autoscan setting — imagine a coworker coming to your desk and frantically dishevelling a neat pile of paper documents sitting on it while you watch — which I’d never chosen to activate to begin with. With that setting shut off, however, the app still doesn’t “find” the document’s edges as precisely as I’d like. It gives you the option of adjusting its placement of them yourself; however, I preferred the scanning feature of the Adobe PDF app to this separate, supposedly-superior Adobe Scan app.

    It's a great Application for Scanning Documents... But when we need it certain Documents in a jpeg or jpg format... It Doesn't Save a cropped image... The whole purpose of using Adobe Scan app is defeated if it will save the image uncropped... Please fix this Bug or Whatever it is... And Can you please also give us an option for Cancellation of the automatic document upload after scanning and saving?

    Incredibly handy, effective, and helpful. Take a moment how to learn how to use this app/software, and you won’t be disappointed. I’m not even super techy and it wasn’t hard to operate. I really could go on and on, but give it a try and you’ll definitely see yourself, especially if you’re a regular desktop to PC scanner. Ahhhhhmazing! If you don’t have access to a desktop scanner, or can’t get yours up and running, or on the go and can’t get to one and need to scan something, this is hands down one handy app. For personal or business use, it’s going to deliver. With this app on the go, you could literally work from the tailgate of your truck if you had to. It’s actually so cool and easy, it makes you want to scan stuff that you’d normally not, or put off. If you can hold your tablet or phone steady for pictures, then you can scan with this. Not to mention all the extra tools and features. As always, through the decades of use, Adobe continues to deliver and stay up on top of the technology game.

    Very useful for scanning, especially for online school, but for some reason they removed the feature to save to Google drive from the same three dots that let you save to gallery. This was very useful and I can use the share button, but the one previously was so much easier and better imo

  1. Scan any document (including notes, receipts, and even images) into an editable PDF that even recognizes text
  2. Edit, enhance and perfect photos imported from your camera roll or PDFs stored in your files
  3. A perfect mobile scanner for people who are on-the-go and can't access a "real" scanner in the moment

  • Great for anyone who wants to get paper to digital with as all Adobe tools. Jan 18, 2018

    By denniscd
    The software is free, more intricate than it may seem, easy to use, and is backed by the comittment of Adobe, Inc. Product continues to improve, and combined with Acrobat or other Adobe iPad Pro apps, just about as good for someone who preserves, categorizes, presents, and shares documents after easy editing and repesoitory in the Creative or Document clouds. In the end, its user choice, with some good alternatives, but this has long term potential and integration is important for ease of use and quality control. I always return to Adobe Scan after trying everything else new. The developers I believe, will maintain their pride in applying knowledge from so many areas within Adobe, that it will become a “Professional” Standard in not too long. Enjoy watching techology change at an accelerating pace. We are envisioning capabilities as though they will come to fuition in a year, but what we can only imagine now, is already very likely a reaity in the making all around us. Thanks Adobe. DDoherty

    By FoojyPod
    I work outside my physical office many days of the week and find this has been an awesome tool that I can use anywhere to document transactions, take pictures of signed documents, checks that I write, letters that I receive, or simply anything at all that I want to document for later records or proof of events. I can photograph flat objects like documents, any kind of paper, even 3-D items I want to remember. I can photograph people and/or places and just click the button and I have a PDF record of the transaction, the person(s), the place where something happened or even a scenic shot.i can access the PDF documents from the cloud wherever I am, and using Adobe Professional Version add text, images, diagrams, notes or even other images and then easily distribute by email to friends, family or colleagues. Makes the job of documenting business or pleasure a breeze! I highly recommend it for anyone who works in the field, out of the office, or from a home office.

    Excellent. Till date, I used Camscanner, but Adobe Scan maybe much better than that. Still, modified file should also be available in image format to be imported or saved rather than PDF only.
  • A very useful app ! Aug 17, 2018

    By Seanpaulcurran
    Up front, I’m giving this app four stars only because the scan process is not as streamlined as I would like it to be (the scan can be a little frustrating when it does not get the entire page). OTHER THAN THAT. This is a useful technology that is highly efficient in creating PDF documents that used to take one scan per page on a slow printer. So I’m very happy that I found this app and I do highly recommend it. I used this app with a 12 page medical document today, I am really happy that I didn’t have to scan twelve pages; one by one on a traditional scanner. It cut my documentation time down by about twenty minutes !. I got this done in 10 minutes with the app!. Adobe could improve on the apps process of “hover” technology in which sometimes the app takes a photo too soon and results in a cut off doc photo. After a few delete / re shoot - I got it done.

  • Adobe Scan review Nov 8, 2018

    By Vivitude1
    Too soon to tell. The program keeps shutting down while scanning. I don’t yet know if the OCR function works, nor have I had time to figure out how to turn off auto scan. I’ll have a better idea once I’ve had a chance to use this app for more than 10 min or have just scanned only 5 pages. I would have waited to comment except an annoying pop-up showed up on the screen asking me to review the app right in the middle of when I was trying to save a pdf, so if my document wasn’t saved, I’ll feel even more annoyed than I was with this app only 10 mins ago. If I may make a suggestion it would be to please wait a little while longer to ask for a review and figure out a way to do it during a moment when there isn’t any scanning saving activity going on. Most people don’t want to stop and review an app when they’re in the middle of using it, especially apps that replace often used office machinery and tasky work like activities. Thx.

  • actual scanning is great but bugs remain Jan 1, 2020

    By sbma44
    I couldn’t get any scans to save when I first installed this despite closing the app, reauthing—all sorts of stuff. Now, weeks later, it works fine. Maybe it needed a phone restart? Who knows. The other major bug is that it appears to not have a notion of folder hierarchy in Google Drive beyond one level. Hard to say if this is Adobe’s fault or Apple’s, because Drive integration appears to only be available via the iOS “share” menu. It’d be nice to have new docs sent to a preferred cloud provider automatically rather than just Adobe’s—the share workflow is clunky—but perhaps this is best filed under “don’t hate the player, hate the game”. Otherwise this app does a nice job of border detection, OCRing and sane defaults for leveling colors etc. No watermarks in the free edition! And the upsells seem to be for other adobe apps, not for features. In this respect it compares favorably to CamScanner (though the capture process is perhaps a bit slower).

  • Good but limited or something wrong Oct 29, 2020

    By jenofmarin
    I do like the app it has come in very handy. I haven’t even promoted the app however I spent a lot of time scanning documents last night that would not upload I figured it was because of Wi-Fi or something. And now I go back in and the drafts have just dropped away and now I’m going to spend a lot of time rescan and everyone of those documents page by page it was a lot so maybe that was the problem it would be nice if there was more of a Q&A than the forum because the form goes off on strange tangents that seem not related to the app. if there’s anybody out there who has information regarding technical support or why the app might be kicking documents off,I am using V iPhone 11 with maximum storage capacities. Is there reason Ap is not allowing a person to save PDF maybe after a certain threshold has been met? My business is paying for the monthly fee.

  • Adobe Scan Jun 16, 2019

    By Alife2BLived
    The Adobe Scan app is pretty basic in terms of features. I downloaded and installed it as an easy way to manage all of the business cards I come across in my travels. I rate the app two stars because if you have a number of business cards you want to store, when you open the app and select business cards, then proceed with capturing the numerous biz cards you might have, the app stores them all in one continuous stream automatically or all in one document (pdf), rather than store each biz card as its own document (pdf). To do it any other way, you have to snap each card and manually convert it to a document or pdf. Each snap of the camera should assume -especially with biz cards, that it’s two sides or pages maximum and do the conversion at the end of the second side or page rather than the default be a continuous document.

  • It’s half an App, Pay $10/month for features Feb 1, 2021

    By YoDanYo
    Document detection is excellent. OCR is kept on Adobe’s private cloud. You cannot move your PDF, even to your iPhone. You CAN move a photo representation in jpg format to your phone, but then you won’t have the OCR text. I scanned in several business documents. Then I wanted to get the OCR text on one of them. Nope. Can’t do it with Adobe Scan. You need Adobe Acrobat Reader for that. Even then, you can’t download a copy of the PDF to share with someone. You can only get a link to Adobe Cloud. Adobe Scan does a good job of scanning, but provides no capability for getting your OCR text. You must download another 250MB App and if you want a copy of the PDF, you must pay $10/month. And if you need more storage, no prob, you can buy that too.

  • Adobe Cloud Privacy Problem Jun 23, 2018

    By Max the Mike
    I got Adobe Scan. But, it is not a stand alone app. Scans are not stored on a device, e.g. iPhone, but in Adobe Cloud. After cloud storage, individual files maybe downloaded back to a device by the copy/paste function. This can be very time consuming without an in mass option. Further, there is a problem with confidentiality and privacy given a nondisclosure agreement for scanned information. Further, the app assumes cloud access by any mode of connectivity to Adobe Cloud via the Internet, which is not everywhere & always available anytime regardless the cost. This amounts to loss of control of ones information that results in lost empowerment. Thus, the whole purpose of a device, e.g. iPhone is defeated or lost. It maybe that I do not know Adobe has solved these problems. Lastly, the paramount issues the app raises are about information availability, legality, safety, & security. Sincerely, M A
