  • Best app for all the things 🙌🏻 Feb 4, 2018

    By JessiT515
    I used this app at first just deleting as I went the first few so I didn’t have to pay for it because Ill admit I’m not one to pay for an app when so many free options are around that is until I realized how truly awesome this app is! It was great using the lite/free version and since I deal a lot with legal documents in my educational field I decided that this app was a must have, I can now scan, upload, fax, etc my documents from ANYWHERE-to make it even better the full paid version allows me to pin/fingerprint lock the documents that are legally binding and for certain viewers only and I’m just in love with the ease and access it provides! I recommend for anyone in any career I use it for personal reasons as well as for work! Not to mention was able to offload my Neat scanner and free up some space and I would recommend this over any other app or product out there and I’ve used numerous! Yay iScanner! Seriously worth the money!

  • Works way better than I expected! Apr 30, 2019

    By Camibuggielynn
    I have just been so delighted by this. I’m a travel therapist and as such I do not work in the places I get paid. I scan all of my documents and send them in. It’s great. In addition my husband has his own business and I do the books. When he gets a bill or a receipt he just scans it and emails it to me from his phone and it is AS CLEAR as if I used a scanner in a home office. No matter what I have used it for it hasn’t failed me once. Sometimes I have to use the manual feature for smaller items like driver’s licenses but it still works amazingly well! The picture is so clear and it looks like it has been scanned. When I used the photos from my phone it never looked clear enough and I was always being asked to scan it again.

    The manual scanning option works better than the automatic. Sometimes the automatic will blur scans. I needed this app very badly since I don't have quick access to a scanner in college. Being in college, I'm glad the app is free!

    Use all the time to make pdf's and mail them from phone. Keep all kinds of docs handy. Have copied whole 50-page docs and sent by email. Also easy to transfer via ftp server in app, normally turned off of course for security. You can passcode-protect any document. Sometimes it is frustrating if it insists your doc fits in one of the predetermined sizes/shapes, which makes your doc look distorted but the original is still there if needed, and you can still try another. Saying “Original Size” solves shape but makes the email recipient unable to print without expertise. Also wish I had better corner fine-tuning: my thumb just isn’t precise enough when I let go. Small issues compared to the incredible usefulness just about every day.

    Two recommendations to make if you want better reviews the first one to not start something a person to upgrade to the pro version I think I've given them a chance to try the trial version at least let me use my maximum of three document until you start bugging me about pro seriously it was overkill and I will even try it I almost just deleted it immediately second suggestion distinguish the two applications from each other the icons are identicaladd the word pro to the pro application for god sake's otherwise I could delete the wrong one and I would consistently trying to upload it would mess I'm just distinguish them from each other

    Just downloaded the app and it looks like I need an account of some type to use it but no clear directions on how to proceed or what to set up. I am not a gamer that enjoys figuring out a cryptic challenge! Supposed to be able to share with up to 6 users but only shows the buy app page with $$ when the 2nd user/device tries to download. Did not want to guess whether or not it was going to charge again for an app download that so far is NOT user friendly- at least not for this user. Thought I’d try the “contact us” function but it will only only allow screen shots - Really!&@? If someone from the App reads this just please let me know if you care if I can use your App and how I can contact a real person to get some clear directions on how to use and share this app! So far I am regretting spending the $6.99 for the scan and fax app package - been a waste of a morning.

    When I purchased pro from the App Store there was no indication that it was a monthly thing. I don’t do upgrades in app and now that seems to be what you have to do? I so now I have two of the same app on here because the pro expired. It def wasn’t enough of a service to pay 4.99 a month, I’m very selective about paying for apps it need to be worth the money. It was worth the one time cost it seemed to be, well maybe it would have been had that purchase actually been a purchase. Not worth a monthly cost. Making sure I have the documents saved and deleting both versions of this app. Not completely sure what changed between when I purchased and now but I would have never missed that it was a monthly fee to have pro. Good thing there are many options out there and I will be more careful from now on.

  • Absolutely awful, good scanner Jun 17, 2017

    By It's 2017
    This app works incredibly well as a scanner in its most basic and simple meaning. If you have something that you need scanned then your in business. But, you better not want to back that file up or anywhere. Or, god forbid your 1 device breaks or stops working. Or maybe you purchase a new device or already have 2 devices that you would like to use this app on. HOW IS THERE NO SYNC OPTION. Nearly all apps backup user information for a seamless transition from one device to another, which you would expect in an app meant for storing files and business use. It's 2017, my pointless phone games sync and are saved to a cloud but something as simple as this isn't. If the scanner didn't work so well this app wouldn't even deserve 1 star. Hopefully the developer can add something like that in so that I don't have to use my 3 year old iPad for accessing these files while my brand new devices is sitting next to me. Also there is no select all. I have business cards and contact info saved and in order to save my nearly 2,000 items I have to click on each and every one. What a joke Great scanner, awful just about everything else.

  • I never give 5 star ratings Sep 20, 2017

    By 3limccombs
    I love this app, absolutely love it. I've thrown out my Fujitsu scan snap because this app is so awesome. The fact I can upload to google drive right from the app and it has OCR built in (not that I've found a reason to take advantage yet) I was hesitant because of the reviews but my experience has been nothing but positive. I love that I can just use the manual option and crop things later and make it fit. The color, BW, and the fading features are awesome! I can't wait to use it and I get excited every time I have something to scan. No app is perfect and I feel to give 5 stars would be to say there's no way this app can be better. WELL worth the money for sure. With such a digital world we live in it just helps to have my smart phone replace one more device and it can now fit in my pocket. Right now my wife and I are being licensed for Foster Care and there is A TON of paper work. As much paperwork as there is there's more people requesting that paper work so the fact that I can email from the app and store information in the cloud, is HUGE for us to stay organized. Highly recommend to everyone!

  • Almost Perfect! Feb 3, 2018

    By C6/Z06
    Could easily be a FIVE star app IF… This app is so close to being everything you’d want in a mobile scanning app. For iPhone users, adding iMessage as a feature would make this all that much better. I don’t like or use Messenger and probably most iPhone users use iMessage anyway, so why wouldn’t you offer it? Let’s face it... there’s got to be a lot of us. Makes no sense! The other thing I would really like to see in a premium app like this is the ability to rotate the signature graphic, whereby it could be properly rotated to easily fit the profile of any scanned document. In the default alignment, it just doesn’t always come out the way you need it. That’s frustrating! These enhancements seem like simple enough fixes to get this to a perfect rating. I’ve made these requests several times in the past but the developer seems unwilling to concede. We’ll see. If this app could do these additional things, I’d probably throw away my other (less impressive) apps that can do these things, now. It’s a very, very good app... it could easily be just that much better and the only mobile scanning I need, IF...

  • Does what it says Jun 14, 2017

    By Barnacules(tm)
    This app pretty much kills the need for a flat bed document scanner and allows you to scan anything anywhere quickly which I like and instantly email it to yourself in .PDF format. The work flow is straight forward and the auto border detection works amazing most of the time. It's also faster than a flat bed scanner and the resulting document looks crisp and you can't tell it wasn't scanned in but rather taken as a picture. I also like that if your scan from a distance the iPhone 7 still has enough resolution to give you a crisp, square image! I would like it to automatically sync the scanned documents to my iCloud and Dropbox and also be able to save the documents as images so they go into my roll as well as a .PDF. Another great feature is you can use an image as a document if someone sends you something to sign in an email and even apply a live signature on top of it using your phone and mail it back to them. This way you don't waste any paper and can turn around signatures very fast

    i like it but it's a bit hard to frame documents via camera shots and keep the camera steady for in-focus scans. Howeber, It's handy and the features are relatively simple and efficient. Thanks for the free service!

  • Terrific auto scan, no iCloud sync Jun 13, 2017

    By Sanook997
    I actually have two scan apps, I really like the workflow on this one. There is just the right amount of features and they are clear and concise. The auto scan is fast and accurate, it really puts the so called number one scanning app to shame in this category. However the big deal breaker for me is the lack of IOS cloud sync, I use multiple devices and scanning something on one device and not having it sync to the other devices makes it nearly impossible for me to use, consequently I'm deleting it from my devices. On the contrary, if you have only one device, say an iPhone and you want a scanning app, I would give this app 5 stars, look no further. Hopefully in time they will add iCloud to the sync.

  • Why change? Mar 25, 2020

    By Weezerdork
    I use this app all the time for work. There used to be a feature that allowed me to quickly email something to my work acct but it was removed with a previous update a few months ago. I thought maybe it was being worked on and would come back. I may start looking for another scan app. The loss of that feature has me spending an extra 10 seconds or so to send my work email the doc. Over the course of the day that time adds up.

  • Little bit of a rip off! Aug 1, 2017

    By Darkhorse1950
    While I think the app is great, I got the free version and kept getting the alert to BUY the pro version! I created several documents and finally when I tried to use the camera in the free version, I was no long able to roll I BOUGHT the pro version!!! Now I have documents in the other one to try and figure out how to move, but I did not want to spend the money on this one! This is "a bit of a rip off!"

  • Crashing Now Feb 2, 2019

    By Julie_e_r
    App used to work great! But recently it’s been crashing all the time, omitting pages when saved to my files (e.g. had an 89 of document that only saved 29 pages) and mixing up the pages. For example, I had a 12pg document I kept adding more pages to in chunks of 10 totaling 92 pages. When I saved it to my iPhone files, the pages were all out of order, and instead of adding each new chunk of 10 pages at the end of the document, it added them to the beginning of the document. But it keeps everything “correct” in the app. Just can’t share or move a correct or complete copy out of the app. Tried emailing, saving to files, google drive, text. Nothing works.

  • Disappointed with later updates Jan 14, 2020

    By nontypical diamond
    I paid, I think, $4.99 one time for this app. I was happy for months until the latest updates. Now after I scan, I have to go back and edit every document because the original scan cuts off the pages in odd shapes. It never did that before. There’s another version of this app by the same creator...for $9.99 a month. I suppose it works better??? What’s up with that? I don’t think that’s fair to loyal customers. I should get good quality scans just like I did before. Sounds fishy that my version doesn’t work well and I would have to pay more for better quality. Can someone tell me why this version is so messed up?

    By mikendezi111
    Like it and great for uploading receipts and docs for work. Uploaded from a picture is really bad quality. I had better luck with the other app I used before this one. Comes out way too blurry/unreadable. Cannot email scans out. It keeps telling me to set up an email using this Mail settings of your device. I have email set up on my phone, email inputed into the settings of the app and not working. I can still upload to google drive which is sufficient for now but would be. Ice to use that function to avoid more steps.

  • App Suddenly Broke. Can’t open at all. Scans inaccessible. Mar 30, 2020

    By playsomethincountry
    This app was extremely helpful up until a week ago when I updated it and it subsequently stopped working. I have many things saved in the app that I can no longer access, and I can no longer scan anything new. The app was acting up - every time I scanned something a blank white page was the result - so I updated. Now when I click the app it instantly closes. I am afraid to delete and re-download the app because of the things I have saved in the app already, but it is as of right now useless. I will be happy to change my review rating if and when this is resolved. In the meantime I am very frustrated and would not recommend this app.
