  • BEST Scanner & one of my MOST USED apps! Mar 8, 2017

    By MSonoda
    I love this app. I work in a retail store that does a lot of shipping orders during the holidays. Most of these shipments are gifts for the recipients, which means the receipt for the order can't go into the box like it normally would. Considering most of the customers placing these shipping orders don't live in our area, I needed a way to send them their receipts. Before looking into a scanner app I would scan the receipt using our printer, save it to the computer, attach the file to an email and send the email to the customer. After about 5 or 6 shipments a week, this gets pretty darn old. So I decided to look into an app that would make this easier for me. I tried 3 or 4 different apps and finally decided to give the Pro version of this one a shot. TOTALLY WORTH IT. I have my work email linked to my phone so I can scan the receipt and email it to the customer in the time it would take me just to get to the printer upstairs!! Not only that, but it's a perfect image copy of the receipt and 100% legible by the customer. Since upgrading to the Pro version, I have found SO MANY uses for it! I scan and text the weekly schedule to all staff, scan documents I want to hang on to and send copies to my boss that he can print or view as if it were the original copy! Definitely one of my MOST USED apps!

    Great app, great scans, easy to use. Definitely worth the upgrade to the Pro version for improved document management. One suggestion for the future: the ability to reorder the pages. This app can take any photo you have in your camera roll and convert it to a scanned document with crisp text. Even a legal contract photographed with a regular camera with bad lighting, and emailed to you. With Tiny Scan you can convert it to a laser-quality black & white printable doc ready to sign. Good job. Recently I got hit by a virus. I had to reset all my iOS devices (clean install) and the ONLY scanner app that had saved everything to the cloud was Tiny Scan. With the others (Genius, CamScanner & ScannerApp+) I had painstakingly save the most important, and let the rest go, but with Tiny Scan all I had to do was to hook up to my cloud service. Even Apple benefited , because I increased the amount of storage I rent in iCloud. I don't own stock in this company, but this scanner software is the only one I reinstalled on my equipment. Try it.

    Simple, easy to use interface. Great for converting receipts or other photos into manageable PDF files, and also to send those files via several different options. Use it for work receipts all the time and makes the accounting department's life so much easier.

    Love it. After I'd paid to upgrade but it still asked for money, I wrote/called in and they corrected that allowing it to finally work without asking me to pay again! Then when I got a new cell it still worked!!
  • By far, the BEST scanner app I've tried Dec 11, 2016

    By adaptiveagile
    I wanted money on Scanbot and at least 3 other scanner apps. Non comes close to tiny Scanner in terms of black & white scan quality, simplicity & ease of use. It is the ONLY scanner app I use now despite owning paid versions of others. Wanted to write this for a long time to thank the developers but... life always gets in the way. I use TS for digitizing some of my books so that I can take them on my iPad. The black and white creates the lightest PDF size. Other apps just can't get it right. They are very low quality with jagged edges. Tiny Scan does lines and details with precision. Love this app. The other settings are also excellent - the grey and color. Creating multi page scans is intuitive, and it's easy to work with my Dropbox. Oddly, the Dropbox mobile scanner probably places in number 2 for scan apps; but again, the quality of TS is second to none.

    Update: after purchasing a subscription I discovered some limitations I couldn't live with. Then I discovered OneDrive does exactly what I need and it's included with my Office 365 subscription. I will no longer need Tiny Scanner. Unfortunately, I cannot find a way to unsubscribe. I don't want a refund, I just don't want it to autorenew when it expires. Pretty unprofessional to not provide a way to do that. Original review: Nothing fancy, it just works.

    This app used to be amazing. Clean, simple, easy. Now they have hidden the storage location on the device so you cannot see any of your scanned pdf files unless you are in the app. This madness makes attaching files to an email a maddening process. If I want to attach a tiny scanned file to a reply email. I first have to email myself the pdf so I can download it to an accessible folder then I can send it onward. This is the most unconscionable change I can think of. Zero stars, app removed.

  • This app died at IOs 10 or 11 Mar 4, 2018

    By JRLBell
    This is really a zero star rating. This app has not worked since version IOs v. 11.0 (maybe 10). The developers don't seem to know how to update the app. Sure, the camera works fine. The cropping of the scan is not as good as it used to be. But, the app no longer connects to Dropbox, One Drive, or Google Drive. In fact, it not only doesn't work with One Drive, but it also doesn't give an error message. The last time I had it auto-uploading to Dropbox, at least it told me that the upload failed. I lost a bunch of documents believing that they were uploaded to One Drive. So, the app is pretty much useless unless you want to connect to Evernote or email the scan to your self every G.. D.... time. What good it a scanning program on your iPhone, if it can't upload the scan anywhere? I've emailed support with feedback several times and all I get back a canned email saying the problem is fixed and they are working on new things for the next update. That's a bold face lie. The update hasn't happened. They haven't offered a true update for a year. Certainly, none of the many problems with the app have been addressed. All the high ratings and excellent reviews are from that time period or before. The more recent ones are similar to this one. Definitely, do not buy this app. I suggest finding a different app that lives up to its claims rather than wasting your time with this one.

    I had been using Tiny Scanner for years. It was nice to have an app for those occasions that I needed a document scanned and I wasn't near a scanner. I opened it today to scan a quick document (since my home scanner is down) and now I have to pay a subscription?! I don't use the app enough to warrent me paying a monthly or annual fee. I didn't mind the ads, but now I'm deleting the program and searching for another. Tiny scanner? How about tiny scammer.

  • Was once a 5 star app, new update ruined most useful feature Jun 26, 2019

    By blauenfir
    New update makes controlling the contrast of a scan incredibly clumsy and frustrating, resetting the page every time a slider is altered. App doesn’t leave the sliders open long enough for a user to see what they change and make a decision. This is a really crappy UI for an iphone now, and it’s so frustrating that I’m considering switching over to a competing camera scanner app because of it. I just want to be able to check that my writing on a scan is legible and the new update has made that 10 times harder. I appreciate the other options, but this one change is a big enough deal to lose multiple stars from my review. Suggestions to fix: make the contrast sliders stay onscreen until the user chooses to dismiss them. It’s that simple. Also let the visual result adjust itself without snapping back to the original unzoomed document size, comparison is easier that way. I know the app has the ability because it did this fine before the update.

  1. Tiny but mighty! Scan important documents in seconds, anywhere and anytime
  2. Smart scan technology automatically finds document edges so you don't have to worry about cropping
  3. A portable scanner in your pocket! Turn your mobile device, phone, or tablet into a document/PDF/photo scanner on the go

    Used to be a great app, have been using now that we teach online. But it's just updated and no longer free. I use it for work, and with WFH it's already expensive to provide my own office - this is what happens when you work in the public sector. So I'm deleting Tiny Scanner and will request my employer provides me with the hardware. In the meantime, thanks TinyScanner, for trying to charge me, a public-sector employee & "key worker", to do my work - you can take a hike.

  • Better than a scanner but often slow May 17, 2016

    By LecPho
    I am thrilled to have tinyscan because it means I own less equipment and I always have a scanner with me. I need to scan docs on the go daily. But they can get hung up for hours or even days in the cloud and sometimes, they simply never arrive in my email. That means you have to see that it is actually there before deleting any doc from tiny scan. They also really want you to buy it so you cannot store more than 3 documents (they can each be multiple pages) in the app without buying the paid version. Camscan is also good and has a bit more functions to choose from with how to send your docs out of the app to email etc. I have both apps on my phone so if one is not working well I can use the other;)

  • GO-TO APP Aug 15, 2017

    By @GatorGirl
    I've downloaded many scanner/fax apps. So far, I like the ease of use with this app, along with the many features (exporting for example) it offers. Overall, I like this app more than the others I've used. The only noticeable (yet minor) difference is editing/filtering. The scans aren't as crisp and clear and with the minimal editing/filtering features available (versus similar apps), this is the only reason it's not a 5 star in my opinion. That's the only feature that I think would give the other apps a slight advantage, though not by much. With that being said, the quality of the scan (editing/filtering) isn't too far off and hasn't deterred me... The pros definitely outweigh!! It's still my go-to app!

  • Ad one issue otherwise decent app Sep 1, 2017

    By YSJill52
    Problems arose with having purchased Tiny Scanner App after free trial. This developer needs to make secondary independent app so once purchased it cannot lose qualified purchase receipt to restore the actually purchased ownership user rights. When getting new iPhone it only recognized free app and Apple stated no refunds credits etc if lost. Program is adequate but somewhere the management is sorely lacking. Not right to have to keep buying over again. Need to make independent. Just a heads up. Integrity may be dead. I like to think not. JDM. Purchaser and practices integrity old school kid. Maybe developers have remedied, I like to think so by now. Only then can I recommend Tiny Scanner App.

  • Decent Scanner Poor Interface with Dropbox Dec 20, 2017

    By The Shan Shan
    As far as scan apps are concerned this app performs pretty well. It offers limited ability to change contrast and color but for free who can complain. Most scanners do a poor reproduction of the original color document. Sadly in white page background the color scan shows the white as grey. But that is true of the other scanning apps I have tried. If edges are not detected to your satisfaction you can adjust easily with the touch of your finger. It handles multiple pages very well and saves the scans in logical manner. The downside is the limited function to export scans. Once you initial define your Google Drive or other external cloud service it is very difficult to change settings. For me, the big downside is the inability to save to Dropbox. The functionality is present but it no longer works. The first year or so of using the app it worked great but now no longer works. I contacted the company and they acknowledged the problem and asked for patience. That was about a month ago and no fix provided thus far. Still looking for a high quality scanning app.

  • Tiny scanner is crashing! Mar 1, 2018

    By Really hard to find a name
    I have been using tiny scanner for a long time, and up to recently, I loved it. But, now it is crashing on a regular basis. I read that if you delete the app, and reinstall, you will lose your scans. I have a large amount of scans. I also read that the developers want people to email them for an answer before giving a bad review, which I did twice. I never received a reply from either email that I sent, so I am writing this to see if that helps to get an answer as to what I can do to fix this problem of the app crashing. To the developer, please email me, call, or post the fix. Thank you!

  • Don’t upgrade to Pro and you’ll enjoy it! Mar 29, 2018

    By Kaitmichele
    Tiny Scanner is a good, basic app, but features like Google Drive upload (and any upload other than camera roll and email via Apple Mail) are restricted to Pro users for $4.99. Sure, whatever. I upgraded because I need it in my Drive as a PDF and I don’t even have Apple Mail on my phone. But the app is an outdated web view app, so Google prohibits Drive access because of security flaws. Frustrated, I attempted to use my iCloud Drive instead. I didn’t get an error message, but it still won’t upload. Basically, the app is fine if you only want to have angled cropping tools and file organization and only want to save to your phone. (Does anyone use Apple Mail anymore?) But don’t buy Pro thinking you’ll get a more robust experience, because it’s just broken. (Ironically, I tried to send the developers feedback about the Google issue. But they only accept feedback through an Apple Mail link!)

  • This Works...Until It Doesn't Sep 17, 2015

    By BethsTravels
    I relied on this without testing it first, and had mixed results. The small handout I scanned worked fine - it definitely looks like I just snapped a picture of it rather than a lrofession pdf, but at least I had the ability to email the information. There is an unspoken limit on pages, however, so the main document I scanned is now stuck in my phone. The app won't let me email or print it and won't tell me why - it just shuts down rather than prompting me to buy the pro version or do anything else to get access to the document. The unreliability, along with the unprofessional look of the scans, means I'll be deleting this app and searching for a better option for my business.

  • Can't do a simple save to photo library Mar 21, 2016

    By Mike-mn
    I gave it two stars because it makes a good scan. Because I can't save to the photo library I don't think it deserves more than two stars. All the other ways to "save" the scan require a connection. Sometimes I don't have one. Maybe when you pay the 4.99 upgrade.....? I might be wrong but I clicked on all the buttons. Didn't see a way to save onto iphone. I could email it to myself (pro?). Dropbox. Google drive. Evernote. One drive. I found scanner pro. Saves to photo library easy, simple. As good a scan quality as this. Not sure why Tiny would prevent a local save. What is the motive behind that?? Maybe they have a Tiny ulterior motive? Tiny pennies from the internet based services? Might just be Tiny brain syndrome. Just kidding. I'm sure you're quite clever and have a good reason. I don't have a lot of confidence that the reason amounts to anything beneficial to the user. Scanner Pro is free or maybe costs $1.99, can't remember. Interesting that it has so many high reviews. I must be missing it. or for some reason they don't mind.
