    Does not work on the OnePlus 7 Pro. It won't focus at all. Even if I try to do it manually it does not work. If I overwrite it and take the shot anyways to convert it, the document comes out blurry and not readable. I loved this app and even got the pro version for it because of its excellent integration with Google drive... Hope there is something to be done here would hate to use a different one as all the others arent much better...

    Use CamScanner. Paid for the VIP version of ScanBot right off the bat and that was such a mistake. The app doesn't know how to recognize your file. It will very often only grab the middle of your page and leave you with clunky tools to try and edit the pdf to look somewhat acceptable. Even if you somehow manage to manipulate its autofind and take as close to a perfect picture as possible, the pdf will come out with huge differences in focus across the page.

    Blech. Constant errors, and one page at a time? Really? In 2019? A waste of $5+

  • by Isa Eyyubov

    I want to say this. Wouldnt it be natural and logical to allow me to recognize at least 1 page before I pay you?

  • by Robert White

    Quality of scans not suitable for the task at hand. No option for a refund.

  • by Kurt Last

    App looks clean. I come from camscanner and missed the own/nextcloud support there. camscanner also has textual annotations. My understanding is that this is a rather new feature in scambot. Maybe I missed something: one cannot search on the annotations. That makes this feature useless to my opinion. Hope this will be added soon

  • The app continue to tell me that I'm not signed into my yahoo account.

    by Zulmeister717

    Its uses my camera. That's it. It doesn't allow me to send anything through yahoo mail. I get you may not like then or you're a Google app. Whatever the case may be. I'm signed in to my yahoo and Gmail all the time on my phone yet this app will not allow me to send scans. And forget reaching customer service. The hoops you have to jump is just as bad as trying to send a scan. Worse scan app out

  • by Frotax Frotax

    After first scan, which I cancelled since wasn't ready, All I get is a white screen with a scan something and plus button. Hit that and all I get is an import and cancel option. I'll upgrade stars if I can figure this out.

  • by David Browning

    Going to have to find something else! Tried to scan a 1/4 page mag article with a pic of a screen in it - kept jumping to a red screen about QR code =there wasn't one anywhere on the page! After more attempts kept zooming down to a narrow vertical strip the width of the screen pic. Gave up and used the camera =got it right 1st time with no bother.

  • Great for small Books, BAD for big books

    by Sexy_;)

    This is a great app for scanning a document or a small book that is up to 500 pages. For bigger books though, it struggles a lot and everything does not get processed properly. I just scanned a book with over 1150 pages. I scanned every single page and it’s showing blank pages... Keep this in mind.

  • Latest update crashes 100% (iOS 11.4.1-iPad pro)

    by Qu3cojones

    Purchased this app maybe 3 weeks ago. All was well until the latest update 2 days ago). Since that update the application hasn’t come up. Any assistance would be appreciated since I don’t want to feel like many others who spent their money on this app and now feel they wasted it.

  • So disappointed

    by donrayatdonraydotcom

    So disappointed. I’ve paid for it twice and scanned thousands of documents, and twice, it crashed and I lost access to the PDFs I had created. Twice I tried to get help from them and twice they blew me off. I may have to try deleting it, but there’s so much work I could lose. Maybe someone from Scanbot Pro will see this and reach out to me. donray at donray dott com.

  • Complete Garbage

    by App Reviewer 007

    The developer regularly breaks the app with each update. This time it has to migrate the library well, its been doing that for over an hour with no end in-sight. Also, they’re going to start charging a subscription fee. I highly recommend that everyone starts considering an alternate scanner app!

  • How can people like this?

    by linear_circle

    I have an iPhone X and the scan quality it’s downright awful. Lines/text are muddy and grays don’t get picked up. I got another free scanner and it worked perfectly in the same lighting and angle. If I could post pictures, I would show the difference. This is inexcusable.

  • Not working

    by justwantittoworkorz

    Scanned files aren’t able to be saved after paying for this app. Files kept stuck in OCR processing. After turning off OCR, files are still stuck in “waiting for processing “ step. Have to use other APP for scanning.

  • Slow

    by DMC-GMR

    Great app features , however the scans take a while to save as pdfs and editing the pages is also slow. Please fix !

  • Wea me aw a VT LLY )

    by ss8tzb

    The above is literally the OCR translation from a scan of a very clear block print line from a book. Maybe the non-OCR capabilities of this app are useful, but the OCR is useless. I’ve had much better success from other apps. This was a total waste of $6.99.

  • Fax is additional $$$

    by mannie-angel

    Disappointed so far Scanner Pro works better - did not disclose cost for faxing until after purchase now I’m out my $5.99

  • Crashed the first time i used it

    by Jeff Terrell umhs

    Took one photo and crashed when I tried to email it. Disappointing !

  • Haven’t been able to email or text any scans options that we can toggle on and off at four

    by vmo-6

    How do I set up start it shows that I can send emails?

  • What is going on?

    by RobWSeattle

    With the new 9.0 update it’s been terrible. I upload to Evernote. It freaking will just sit there uploading forever! I have to kill the app to get it to finish uploading. Stupid.

  • Love the support for bringing in multiple photos at once. But...

    by SteveU75

    Scans copied to iCloud but don’t show in library. While looking at a pdf Manual on The web and using share menu to send to scan bot pro the document often does not come across. Tags just seem to add to title. Hassle to use. Back to looking for reliable PDF app. Can’t open doc I just created. They tell me to reboot phone. Powerful but flaky
