  • Best scanner app, period.

    by ChazwickB

    Scanbot is such a powerful tool. It’s amazing to have what might be the best single-page scanner I’ve ever used (including desktop scanners) right in my pocket and at my fingertips all of the time! Scanbot’s capture quality is impeccable and the auto-cropping, border detection, OCR, and color filters all work wonders, it’s just great. All of this is wrapped in a beautiful UI with incredibly thoughtful design and backed by a helpful and dedicated team. When I reached out with a bug, the response was swift, courteous, and helpful. If that all wasn’t already enough, Scanbot Pro provides some powerful tools: document editor with redaction tool; Workflows for common sharing options, such as saving to a specific folder as an image or PDF, or uploading to Evernote, etc; Actions, which allow you to quickly access data-detector items in a scanned document (such as phone numbers, addresses, dates, links, email addresses, etc); Auto-upload to Evernote, iCloud, and more; File-name templates; Siri Support (add a document to Siri for quick access)… Clearly Scanbot Pro is amazing and worth the price of admission for the Pro features. Give it a try and see what you think, but if you even just a couple of times per month find yourself needing to scan something, save yourself a lot of trouble with Scanbot Pro!

    One of the Best Scan Apps Ive used. I use it daily as a Truck Driver for Work and quick payment. The only downside is Im unable to send to my instant messenger on my phone only to email.

  • Amazing Scanning App

    by Yogui46

    I have been using this scanning app for over 3 years now and it has been of great help through so many things in my life. I remember when I first was looking for a scanning app and installed many to try out, and out of all of them, I can say this one was the best. Not only because it’s free but because it’s powerful. I recently made the decision to purchase the app finally and I am glad I did because it permits me to scan and be able to sync the scans to my iCloud or any other cloud service, which is great and definitely worth purchasing. I would recommend this scanning app for anyone interested in scanning documents on the fly as I do.

  • by Brittany De Los Angeles

    super impressive. Trying to minimalize my space by getting rid of paper items. Unfortunately some of those items contain important info. I'm very excited to begin using this to store my docs electronically. Thank you!

  • Best Scanning App I’ve ever used (and I’ve tried several)

    by elizadams

    ...since 2008 with the invention of the App Store. I needed to use a phone scanner on the fly to scan some docs for business and also fax them—I saw that this app did both but was worried about trying a something new because I didn’t have time for any sort of learning curve. This was AMAZING, so intuitive, so seamless, and produced SUCH GREAT results. The integration with AirPrint etc. is flawless as well, and the ability to fax directly from the app just made this my go-to scanning app. I’m recommending it to everyone!

  • by A Google user

    Does what it claims, has an easy user interface and is simple yet, effective for scanning and backing up important documents. Very well made app.

  • New to iPhone Scanning

    by BallenGuy

    Just bought this program and I must say it is fantastic! I am not someone that likes to read instructions, so when I had an important document to scan just after buying the program, I figured I would try it out. I booted up the app and skipped right to SCAN. It worked intuitively and flawlessly, and made a perfect .pdf file and even straightened it out. I then emailed it from within the program - again it worked flawlessly! Very impressed and worth every penny!

  • After trying MANY scanning Apps, this is the best one for the price

    by Itsallaboutdesign

    GoPro! Definitely DO buy this app if you have a lot or a little scanning to do... Not only does it connect to your iCloud, but it automatically allows you to select the information you want in the title, and then edit/add to it. It allows you to create folders and overall I have found it to be the most helpful app for scanning and faxing that is available for iOS users.

  • Solid Scanning App

    by I'm harsh on apps, but

    It does all of the things it says it does and it does them well. I’m often in situations where I’m shuffling through paper documents, and Scanbot allows me digitalise them quickly. Everything gets uploaded to either my iCloud Drive or my Google Drive. I debated between Scanbot Pro, Scanner Pro, and Genius Scan. I have no regrets. The paid version of Scanbot provides enough enhancements and features that it is absolutely worth the price tag. The only thing I would change about it is the file size. It’s not a big deal, but high quality PDFs that could be 500KB are often five or six times that size. It makes it difficult to send them and download them through WhatsApp over slower connections, which is too often my case.

  • by Brandon Carr

    It would be nice if I could save scans (based on a tag) to a specific cloud folder within my onedrive cloud file service... basically allowing auto-filing. Other than that, this scanner is fantastic!

  • Great scanner ..needs work to sync with google drive

    by jhytfgr

    ScAnning function, multiple pages, editing, etc are all great. I’m using this to go “paperless” and the missing piece is that it doesnt sync with my file changes on google drive. My workaround is to save the file to the app then upload it to google drive, so it only adds one extra step vs selecting a location and having it sync there automatically. Still definitely worth the $7 or whatever it cost.

  • Where'd the dark screen option go?

    by Pumasalad

    Love this app, use it every day. But I do miss the dark mode that I was using in the last version. Yesterday's update turned all the text to gray on White instead of white on Black. The lower contrast makes it hard for me to read. Maybe I'm missing something, so I'll keep looking for it. Other than that, love what you've done with it...

  • by Aluma Bosco

    Fantastic app. Exactly perfect for professional scanners like us... It has everything... Bravo to developers.

  • Works

    by TraceyFolds

    I transitioned from Readdle (Scanner Pro) after many years. I needed something with a more reliable sync. This seems to do everything I need without any issues. The addition of fax capability makes it an upgrade. I do approximately 50 to 75 scans a night. I scan directly to folders within Scanbot and sync from there. It’s held it’s own with no issues.

  • by W Kebert

    Thanks. The changes you suggested did work, but I see one needs to pay extra for the OCR functionality so it's not for me. All the best

  • Versatile tool

    by Lucy<3Music

    Scanbot is such a great product. I use to use a very expensive desktop scanner from Fujitsu and now my preference is to use Scanbot. Since I do a lot of traveling, I use to scan documents, articles and receipts on the go and not have to be keeping paper copies. This is a very easy app to use and to integrate with all my cloud services.

  • Solid App!

    by JuicyJamz587

    Solid app that comes in very handy. In my case I’m not the office type I’m out in the field but for what I use it for it pretty much replaces a scanner/copy machine and fax. Never had any issues using any of the features and in my opinion was well worth the one time $7 Pro upgrade.

  • by Roger Hicks

    love how easy it is to scan pictures and documents!!

  • One crucial feature missing

    by Gpapaaa

    Great scanning app ... I just wish it had the feature to get all the scans adjusted to the same size For example, another scanning app I use allows me to scan and adjust the page sizes so they’re the exact same size across the entire document. This way when I print out a multi-page document it comes out perfect on 8 by 11.5 sheets * as an aside the multi-page function is horrendous, but that’s okay because scanning each page individually is very easy and takes about the same amount of time. Other then those things I mentioned, I have no other complaints, the image quality of the scans are quite good, even with my iPhone 6s camera vs a newer phone

  • by Joe Reid

    this app is incredible! highly recommended

  • Update to earlier review

    by Bonnbnj

    It does not capture reverse letters or a color background very well but it does a pretty good job of sending straightforward texts documents by email in pdf format. I was able to use it after messing with it for 10 minutes but no way my husband could figure it out. It is a definite time saver from our old method on our scanner and computer so we will keep it.

  • A must Try - Finally something to rival Readdle!

    by MlNlMO

    This programmer is so smart I revived an option to personally email the creator. Not place a review on an app I haven’t tried to to actually talk to the creator who then responded and ask for any fees back would be appreciated well it’s already one hell of an app!

  • by Don Anderson

    A completely off-line resident scanner with no subscription fees and privacy. Install the free app and use in-app purchases for lite - ocr, search, and annotate; pro - ocr, search, annotate, automatic perspective correction, filters, qr/bar codes; or vip - update the free version to pro with a second pro license useable with ios or android devices. Excellent support.

  • Solid

    by crookedsquare

    Impressive attention to detail, with numerous options for upload services. The interface is intuitive on first use, and it's a relief to know there will be no interruptive ads or upgrade promos. This could be an excellent choice for businesses or schools - it's made to please.

  • by M.

    Fantastic app, works better than ones from the big players. Can be configured to support your custom workflow. Privacy settings are clear and so is the business model: no ads, not selling user data. I bought the pro version. One feature request : can you add an option to configure custom auto upload locations settings per tags?

  • Scanbot

    by BubbeMom

    This program for iPhone and iPad is pretty easy to use. The best so far. I was able to scan a newspaper article and email it to my granddaughter without any problems and it only took me about five minutes from beginning to end.

  • by Tim McMorris

    Ive downloaded around 10 different apps primarily for receipt scanning and this is the best so far, even when compared against Adobe and Microsoft apps. Auto upload to cloud, templates for name formatting of receipts, adjustable resolutions of PDFs, crops to the actual scan rather then defaulting to a 8x11 page for exaple - all lot of good work here. The ONLY thing this app lacks is the ability to create folders. That would be my suggestion to the developers.

  • Excellent Program

    by Skeeles

    I have used Scanbot for some time to digitize documents at farms I inspect. I have used the program under a wide range of conditions and with a wide range of documents. The program has lived up to my expectations and needs.

  • by darshan kapadia

    nice, fast and does the job well. Excepting auto color, etc is not as per expected. And if I want to lighten the pic I have taken, need to purchase it. Also need to have an option to store pics as well as pdf.

  • Lazy Tattoo artist dream

    by TMJNXPRFDC

    I work with a lot of Japanese woodblock images for reference. Still have to trace the scan to paper format and clean it up to make Tattoo oriented but it saves many hours annually. Definitely recommend to any busy artist that works with a lot of detail.

  • Probably the Best of its Kind

    by C6/Z06

    The only thing I could think of to add would be the ability to rotate a signature graphic. Beyond that, I couldn’t think of another thing to add that would make it any better than it is.

  • I TRIED them all. I CHOSE this one.

    by BJonesDC

    ... and this is from a huge Adobe fan. Crisp interface, a plethora of sharing and saving options, and even a rainbow of modern shades for app coloring customization. Scanbot Pro put brings a user’s scanning and faxing dreams to reality.

  • My Go-To PDF Scanning App

    by EnlightenedWombat

    This App is solid for all your PDF-Scanning-needs. From miscellaneous handwritten notes to important personal documents, Scanbot Pro gets the job done. Be sure to link the app with your iCloud and Google drive👍.

  • It works so fast!

    by mrstee

    I love this app because it works so fast!!! I used to accumulate documents to scan but now I use this app right away. It has saved me the hassle of settling up my scanner. It works great!

  • Simple and functional

    by Nazadus

    Works great, is simple, and is very functional. About as good as one could get especially for scanning multi page documents.

  • User friendly app

    by Clawdan3

    Well done!! I use this more than I use Windows 10! Port the scan to Evernote, and you have the document anywhere.

  • Da Bird!

    by Ra-Imhotep

    I think of Scanbot Pro as my own personal assistant! Copies, faxes, edits, sends, transfers, files- all the things daily life is about in our modern world. Scanbot saves me time & money, is user-friendly, it's fast & glitch free, no paper!!!

  • Tried all the rest...this is the best!

    by Ben+Jamin

    Tried about 5 other well known camera scanner apps over the past year+. Scanbot always beats them.

  • Really good app

    by VBTS

    Fast to scan and like the quick access filters, also easy to share images.

  • Very good Product

    by johnm972

    I have used it to convert handwritten notes to multiple page PDFs, scanned receipts to PDFs , and hardcopy documents to multiple page PDFs. It is by far the best scanner app I’ve used.

  • For $5 you can replace a $200 business card scanner

    by Tashaismydog

    And use it for a ton of other things. Totally worth it - a great value and easy to use.

  • Awesome

    by rcope

    Just switched from another scanning app and am so glad I did. ScanBot is so much better integrated in iOS, and is so easy to scan and file. Great app.

  • Scanbot 8, Pro version - great scanner!

    by BAR112

    Scanning a single column of text and obtaining OCR/editable text works great on my iPhone and iPads. I appreciate the filters to make the text stand out better, as well.

  • Day to day Life Simplifyer

    by Respectfully - David Bogas

    I now consider myself organized. Files from work or home are very accessible and the process is fast. I do recommend this App.

  • Excellent scanner app

    by Stever777

    This scanner app has replaced Scanner Pro as my favorite scanning app. It does everything you might want, including annotations, encryption, signing, and document managing.

  • Works!

    by scrmjt

    Works well! Couldn’t figure out how to configure an email account easily... sharing could be better.

  • Great for sending signed docs

    by VegasJosh

    I use it to scan and send docs in pdf format. Works great. Fast easy and surprisingly accurate.

  • Amazing!

    by brockIsaacks

    This app goes above and beyond for its purpose. Wish the conversion of text from scanned photo to digital was a little better but good work guys!

  • The app crashes a lot

    by pposwcu

    Have to constantly close and open the app bc it freezes up or just stops working. Very frustrating.

  • Best Scanner for Business Receipts

    by Weho_Hodge

    I have been using scanners for business receipts for the past 3 years with Box. This one is the best. Easy clean interface. Does what it says. Great job!

  • Scanbot pro

    by laneDM

    Complete scanner and document converter. Simple and easy to use with a very user friendly interface

  • Good replacement for antiquated tech

    by kylehotchkiss

    Definitely as good as a flatbed scanner for flat paper documents. Struggles with passport scans though, but I don’t think that’s a solvable issue.

  • Wish it had OCR text edit tool

    by jeanz1993

    Just that. I wish it had OCR text edit tool and a wider range for getting the image. Wish I hadn’t jumped the gun and would have watched and read more reviews on this app. But I already spent the money so it will do.

  • Simply the best

    by SteveDoc52

    I’ve tried them all. Adobe, Microsoft, Evernote, and I always come back to Scanbot. It outshines them all in every way. Period.

    This programmer is so smart I revived an option to personally email the creator. Not place a review on an app I haven’t tried to to actually talk to the creator who then responded and ask for any fees back would be appreciated well it’s already one hell of an app!

  • Scanning a Breeze

    Very nice ! So easy to use and it really works.

  • Great for sending signed docs

    by VegasJosh

    I use it to scan and send docs in pdf format. Works great. Fast easy and surprisingly accurate.

  • Absolutely Outstanding!

    Very useful app.

  • One crucial feature missing

    by Gpapaaa

    Great scanning app ... I just wish it had the feature to get all the scans adjusted to the same size For example, another scanning app I use allows me to scan and adjust the page sizes so they’re the exact same size across the entire document. This way when I print out a multi-page document it comes out perfect on 8 by 11.5 sheets * as an aside the multi-page function is horrendous, but that’s okay because scanning each page individually is very easy and takes about the same amount of time. Other then those things I mentioned, I have no other complaints, the image quality of the scans are quite good, even with my iPhone 6s camera vs a newer phone

    by Ra-Imhotep

    I think of Scanbot Pro as my own personal assistant! Copies, faxes, edits, sends, transfers, files- all the things daily life is about in our modern world. Scanbot saves me time & money, is user-friendly, it's fast & glitch free, no paper!!!

  • Solid App!

    by JuicyJamz587

    Solid app that comes in very handy. In my case I’m not the office type I’m out in the field but for what I use it for it pretty much replaces a scanner/copy machine and fax. Never had any issues using any of the features and in my opinion was well worth the one time $7 Pro upgrade.

  • The app crashes a lot

    by pposwcu

    Have to constantly close and open the app bc it freezes up or just stops working. Very frustrating.

  • After trying MANY scanning Apps, this is the best one for the price

    by Itsallaboutdesign

    GoPro! Definitely DO buy this app if you have a lot or a little scanning to do... Not only does it connect to your iCloud, but it automatically allows you to select the information you want in the title, and then edit/add to it. It allows you to create folders and overall I have found it to be the most helpful app for scanning and faxing that is available for iOS users.

  • Amazing app!

    by Lucism1

    The best app to scan, fax, ocr, send, save ... any document! Really versatile!

  • Best Scanning App in the App Store

    by Jason WSP

  • Saves an amazing amount of time

    by RCL 58

    Scanbot is an easy-to-use and amazingly accurate OCR app.

  • Scanbot 8, Pro version - great scanner!

    by BAR112

    Scanning a single column of text and obtaining OCR/editable text works great on my iPhone and iPads. I appreciate the filters to make the text stand out better, as well.

  • Worth every penny

    by Leo bertoglio

    Quick and easy to use!!! I'm in college and it helps me a lot

  • Very good Product

    by johnm972

    I have used it to convert handwritten notes to multiple page PDFs, scanned receipts to PDFs , and hardcopy documents to multiple page PDFs. It is by far the best scanner app I’ve used.

  • New to iPhone Scanning

    by BallenGuy

    Just bought this program and I must say it is fantastic! I am not someone that likes to read instructions, so when I had an important document to scan just after buying the program, I figured I would try it out. I booted up the app and skipped right to SCAN. It worked intuitively and flawlessly, and made a perfect .pdf file and even straightened it out. I then emailed it from within the program - again it worked flawlessly! Very impressed and worth every penny!

  • Update to earlier review

    by Bonnbnj

    It does not capture reverse letters or a color background very well but it does a pretty good job of sending straightforward texts documents by email in pdf format. I was able to use it after messing with it for 10 minutes but no way my husband could figure it out. It is a definite time saver from our old method on our scanner and computer so we will keep it.

  • Great and Useful App

    by Stever777

    This scanner app has replaced Scanner Pro as my favorite scanning app. It does everything you might want, including annotations, encryption, signing, and document managing.

  • Excellent Program

    by Skeeles

    I have used Scanbot for some time to digitize documents at farms I inspect. I have used the program under a wide range of conditions and with a wide range of documents. The program has lived up to my expectations and needs.

  • Solid app

    by shawnhank

    Scanbot Pro allows me to leverage automation in order to be more productive. Scan a receipt, and then use the workflow feature to send it to your expense reporting app, and then save it to any one of a number of cloud storage or other services. I’ve never had any of the problems regarding yellowing or exposure issues that other reviewer’s have mentioned. I’ve recently purchased a pack of fax credits. I think the service is expensive, even with a discounted price for a pack of scans. But you do get what you pay for. The option of saving the fax report to the local scan but documents folder is a great touch. One thing I did notice was that the fax history does not sync between devices. In other words if I send a fax from my iPhone, the fax history stays in the Scanbot Pro app on the iPhone and the history does not sync to my other devices (iPad Pro 12.9, iPhone 8, Pixel 2 XL, etc.). Perhaps this is always been part of a future version, it’s just not in the product yet. I hope this gets added in a future update, because that’s the only thing I see as being an issue. Being able to open the fax history, and perhaps resend the fax if it didn’t go through from a different device would be a great way to be sure it’s not a device issue. Lastly, I don’t know whether or not refunds are offered for credits that may have been spending for unsuccessful faxes. All of my fax the pages via the Scanbot Pro app have been successful, which is a great way to express the reliability of this app.

  • Great for my workflow

    by keklemenos

    Scanbot plus cropping --> DayOne is a great way for me to keep a journal of meaningful quotes from authors!

  • Great App

    by Alieti

    Only 4 stars b/c sometimes app gives a yellow tint on some scanned items. But otherwise it’s perfect.

  • Probably the Best of its Kind

    by C6/Z06

    The only thing I could think of to add would be the ability to rotate a signature graphic. Beyond that, I couldn’t think of another thing to add that would make it any better than it is.

  • Day to day Life Simplifyer

    I now consider myself organized. Files from work or home are very accessible and the process is fast. I do recommend this App.

  • Tried all the rest...this is the best!

    by Ben+Jamin

  • Good

    Good

  • Solid

    by crookedsquare

    Impressive attention to detail, with numerous options for upload services. The interface is intuitive on first use, and it's a relief to know there will be no interruptive ads or upgrade promos. This could be an excellent choice for businesses or schools - it's made to please.

  • best scan APP ever

    by Senpuuk11

    extraordinary!

  • Works!

    by scrmjt

    Works well! Couldn’t figure out how to configure an email account easily... sharing could be better.

  • Works

    by TraceyFolds

    I transitioned from Readdle (Scanner Pro) after many years. I needed something with a more reliable sync. This seems to do everything I need without any issues. The addition of fax capability makes it an upgrade. I do approximately 50 to 75 scans a night. I scan directly to folders within Scanbot and sync from there. It’s held it’s own with no issues.

  • Where'd the dark screen option go?

    by Pumasalad

    Love this app, use it every day. But I do miss the dark mode that I was using in the last version. Yesterday's update turned all the text to gray on White instead of white on Black. The lower contrast makes it hard for me to read. Maybe I'm missing something, so I'll keep looking for it. Other than that, love what you've done with it...

  • Timesaver!

    great app--like it's the best at creating pdfs from a pic. But I have a copy on my ipad and on my iphone and the cloud doesn't sync appropriately

  • Best Scanning App I’ve ever used (and I’ve tried several)

    by elizadams

    ...since 2008 with the invention of the App Store. I needed to use a phone scanner on the fly to scan some docs for business and also fax them—I saw that this app did both but was worried about trying a something new because I didn’t have time for any sort of learning curve. This was AMAZING, so intuitive, so seamless, and produced SUCH GREAT results. The integration with AirPrint etc. is flawless as well, and the ability to fax directly from the app just made this my go-to scanning app. I’m recommending it to everyone!

  • User friendly app

    by Clawdan3

    Well done!! I use this more than I use Windows 10! Port the scan to Evernote, and you have the document anywhere.

  • Muy util

    by shyam.patel

    Scanbot Pro is a life saver. I can scan documents and send them faster than the traditional way.

  • Amazing Scanning App

    by Yogui46

    I have been using this scanning app for over 3 years now and it has been of great help through so many things in my life. I remember when I first was looking for a scanning app and installed many to try out, and out of all of them, I can say this one was the best. Not only because it’s free but because it’s powerful. I recently made the decision to purchase the app finally and I am glad I did because it permits me to scan and be able to sync the scans to my iCloud or any other cloud service, which is great and definitely worth purchasing. I would recommend this scanning app for anyone interested in scanning documents on the fly as I do.

  • Solid Scanning App

    by I'm harsh on apps, but

    It does all of the things it says it does and it does them well. I’m often in situations where I’m shuffling through paper documents, and Scanbot allows me digitalise them quickly. Everything gets uploaded to either my iCloud Drive or my Google Drive. I debated between Scanbot Pro, Scanner Pro, and Genius Scan. I have no regrets. The paid version of Scanbot provides enough enhancements and features that it is absolutely worth the price tag. The only thing I would change about it is the file size. It’s not a big deal, but high quality PDFs that could be 500KB are often five or six times that size. It makes it difficult to send them and download them through WhatsApp over slower connections, which is too often my case.
