    paid full thinking that the ocr can read the text but after multiple tries..ocr cannot completely recongise text. always translate with funny characters even with clear document what was converted from receipt pic. those that want ocr u get much accurate results from using Evernote to convert ur pic as doc and using Google lens to translate. direct Google lens translate also does it but not as accurate n sometimes misaligns

  • by Ursus Luxton

    Got sick of the ads and expected features to work by paying for the app. instead the camera did not cut out the glare from the images nor does it automatically crop the page text. the lack of quality in recognizing text, words, paragraphs and punctuation leaves much room for improvement. Save your time and money by fully testing this app and comparing it to other Apps.

  • by Glen H

    Nice app but OCR is useless in that it is about 50% accurate on a Costco receipt. I regret purchasing this as there is no demo. Don't buy if you want to use OCR. Also the search only matches beginning of words so it doesn't work well when OCR can't scan an 'A' character.

  • 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 Xypleth

    Good, but flawed. Color adjusting can't be done in batch, it takes a long time, the app is incorrectly sorting the pages, and once saved, they cannot be rearranged, because can't edit documents once they're saved. If the app crashes, or you don't save, everything is lost, and you need to do all over again. It works, but it's not very convenient

  • by Salman Q

    i hate to leave bad reviews but this app just doesnt "scan" properly anymore. has no idea where the edges of the paper are. it used to work a year ago or so perfectly... now its a mess

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 !

  • 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?

  • 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

  • Bad Update

    by JohnnyAppleSeedCanDo

    I hate the new update. Now I have to click twice to save the scans to icloud!

    Fails to find the edges of a peice of paper 9 times out of 10. Plus, paid for the medium version and it's still adware.
