Works ok  Old Skype user  3 star

So far so good


Adding characters to document name  Ronnv  2 star

When saving a scanned document, randomly the app will add the word page with a number and then a list of alpha-numeric characters to the name. It isn’t visible until checking where the document was saved. Very annoying as I have to rename once saved. Secondly please return to the previous menu for saving/uploading documents, the menu of non-used apps is a workflow obstacle. Thank you, I do appreciate the app and use it daily.


Privacy notice  Jumper54322  3 star

Love the App, but getting tired of having to click the “I’ve read the notice” button every time I open the App. I’ve read the notice already. Can you make that go away so I can just open the app without having to click the extra button EVERY time! Once should be enough. Thanks!


OCR request  Mxkerr2012  4 star

Please add Hebrew to the OCR function. I use this app to scan Hebrew books. Academic books to further Biblical scholarship. The OCR function works great for the English, but Hebrew would be a great addition. Since you have Japanese and Chinese I can't imagine adding Hebrew would be much difficulty. אבגד etc. I can type with them so can you please add them? Thank you. Max


Unpredictable  MeMeMe2  2 star

Keeps auto-scanning even in manual mode making the app worthless to me


Fax not working  Envy5293  1 star

I’m having such a hard time navigating this app to send a fax. It used to be really easy. Now you have to buy credits from the App Store to make this work. I’ve tried doing this. It still won’t work. I can’t find a support number to get help. They took something that worked fine and then broke it.


Crashing after last update  jsmviola  2 star

After the most recent update, I cannot even open the app, since it crashes within two seconds of clicking the icon. Is this a problem with the update? Would hate to have to move to a different scanning app, this has definitely been my favorite up until this point.


용량이 과하면 전체 폴더, 파일 삭제됩니다  SunQyu  1 star

어플이 스스로 저장해놓은 전체 데이터를 삭제하기도하나요?? 스캔해놓은 자료들이 한번에 사라지는 신기한 어플입니다.

Latest update has ruined this app  rqball master  1 star

This has been my favorite app for years. I scan receipts and all types of documents. However, in the interest of trying to promote their own services, they have listed all their apps on the first list and when you upload to something you want to use, you have to scan through menus to find the app you want to upload to. I can see no way to fix it. Have the upload apps are not even on my phone, but is just an add to get you to buy and download another app. One of the big advantages of this app was ease of use. This latest trick has made it a chore to even upload a doc to google docs or OneDrive. The apps in the “services” section do not work and no instruction is given to get them to work.


Share to One Drive  the_ekin  5 star

Hi guys, Please fix the bug with the share of pdf files to One Drive. It gives the error: “Authorization Failed. The operation couldn’t be completed. (RSGenericOnlineClientErrorDomain error 2.)”. Hope you work it out. Best regards, Alex


Used for years  chad()  5 star

The best scanner app on the app store, and very reasonably priced compared to the competition.


App is unstable  marchiano  1 star

I used to be a big fan. The app is no longer stable. Clicking on the upload button (to OneNote) is no longer responsive. The spinner will just keep on spinning and nothing happen. I cant even upload a single document to OneNote anymore. Please stop asking to enable auto upload. Very annoying dialog box.


Hate the built-in advertising!  MissBob99  2 star

I’ve been an enthusiastic user of the full version for several years, and it has worked very, very well. And the latest version continues to work well. However, under the guise of ‘making it easier’ the newest version inserts multiple non-standard icons into the share sheet that are attempting to convince the user to install/purchase more of their products! They are not coded like normal share sheet entries, as they cannot be re-arranged or switched off! So, every single time I open the share sheet to run a workflow, I’m faced with multiple attempts to upsell me to the vendor’s additional products! Thank you Readdle, I’ve checked out your other products via the App Store, and, at this time, I have no need for them. Now please get your advertising out of my face. No - this is not making things better for the user. If I wanted to be bombarded with advertising, I’d log in to Facebook!


Loss of function with last “upgrade”  AussieDoc  2 star

Now has unremovable advertisements for Spark & PDF Expert - other software from this company. These obstruct use and consume screen space. Now noticeably slower to use having to move these out of the way and no way to remove them. The extra friction in use is VERY frustrating! Probably time to look for an alternative. (Author - if you read this, a way to deactivate unwanted destinations would restore a 4 star rating. As is, it is too frustrating)


Frustrating!!  Prolificeclecticreader  1 star

Used to work, now crashes immediately every time you scan. Impossible to save anything. No updates, and restarting dies nothing. This drives me crazy!!


Useful app but drains battery  Thomasina  4 star

This app is a godsend; it has saved me a lot of standing at the photocopier when doing library research. I do have one gripe: it drains battery life like you wouldn’t believe. For example, 15 minutes of use will drain my iPhone SE battery 12% or more and can make my phone run hot. If it were more battery efficient it would be perfect.

Massimo Zandona

Awful scanning  Massimo Zandona  1 star

I had and old scanning app and I looked for a new one because the old one was not so good. I looked at the preview and once it was scanned it was like a doc already made on computer. So I paid the money and then I tried holding over my page then it scanned well but came out blurry and looked awful and I tried and tried it did not work at all. I think it was a waste of money and I am not pleased 😡 Massimo aged 10


Excellent  FederorElvis  5 star



Very useful for those on the go  tyyd22  5 star

I use this for work documents all the time, it’s a handy place to store identification scans (passport/license) qualifications/certificates to support resumes ect for prospective employers


iCloud is broken  Darresh  1 star

Multiple bugs with iCloud that the developer refuses to address. Better off using “scan documents” in the stock notes app.


Very disappointed  trabadero  1 star

This app request full access of all files on google drive - not only folder or files it creates. The border detection needs constant correction


It used to be my goto scanner app...  Mustang2066  2 star

I used to use this app all the time to scan my important documents so that I can have them on all my devices wherever I go...Until I started having trouble accessing my documents when I needed them most. If my signal is weak then I usually can’t access all of my documents because they’re all in the cloud and not actually on my devices. Or if I can access them it takes forever to populate in the app. Just recently I had to retrieve a very important document but my signal was weak so I couldn’t retrieve it at the moment I needed it. It was very frustrating. This has happened to me several times and it’s come to the point where I just stopped using this app for scanning and I started using the Apple Notes app which has made it much easier to access what I need when I need it. And also even if I do have a decent signal it takes so very long to load up all my documents. It’s possible I just have so many documents in the app but that’s because I used it and relied on it so much until now. I really like how I can fax documents straight from this app but until these problems get fixed I’m just going to have to go elsewhere..


Problems in recent update  gunnkun  3 star

With the most recent update the app no longer scans on my iPhone SE. no settings have changed, but it will not automatically capture a document, and if I manually press the button the app stalls. It will still show that it is recognizing the edges of the document, but never captures it. I can’t get past the capture screen to save the document anymore.


Incredible!  HaoleLove  5 star

This is one of the best apps of all time! It’s absolutely incredible. It’s super easy to use and saves a lot of time. Best money ever spent (and I never buy apps). Thank you, to the developer, for what you do!


Absolute Junk  Bogiebox  1 star

This program DOES NOT WORK. If you try to access your photos IT decides what photos it will convert, not what you want converted. I have images of pure text that it will not allow me to access. So, I printed the pages out and scanned it. NOTHING. It does nothing but convert it to an uneditble PDF. THERE IS NO TEXT CONVERSION. If there is, it’s hidden deep inside the program an you have to get a degree to lean how to use it. This is a total waste of money.


Better Stability  bobbyleejones  4 star

I raised my rating to “4” since the latest version is a lot more stable. My “4 rating” comes from the fact that I use other scanners, such as Microsoft OneNote, for scanning stuff, and they’re pretty good too. I use this app for making PDF’s for eink readers. This app would be more useful to me if it could create small pdf files with png images of a certain dpi (and size) and a specific number of indexed colors (grayscale colors) using nearest neighbor interpolation. Being able to erase shadows would be nice as well.


How do I send this as a gift?  Rockrabbit45  4 star

I’m needing to send this app to my colleagues as a gift. I know if they try the app they will gift it to others. So how can I send this app as a gift? Thank you.


Stupid decision  sam_modi333  5 star

Y would you guys take out iCloud service without informing your customers? Will never recommend you guys... this is stupid... just to check my previous doc. I have to login to iCloud...


Do not buy  Rykaroni  1 star

There is a glitch with iPhone facial recognition where it takes about 6 or 7 swipes up to unlock the phone if you happened to lock your iPhone with the app still open. I’ve contacted customer support with this issue but there seems to be a lack of product updating or support for the latest phones


Doesn’t have a recycled bin featrue  MarkH25  3 star

This app’s function is okay, and works good. the user interface is kind of confusing when doing group documents, ocr contents can’t be copied separately and the delete document delete the whole thing instead of the page.


Great - but only 4 stars- here’s why  Julesyro  4 star

Love the functionality. I can scan and review documents on the fly. It is efficient and incredibly useful. I can even sign documents. So really almost perfect! But it has developed a problem after a recent update. It has stopped linking with my email. So when I send files via the email link in the scanner pro app, it acts like the email is sent but no one every receives my emails. It worked perfectly before, but not now. So now I have to save each scan to my photo file and email from there!! When they resolve that problem I will give it the 5 stars it deserves! Suggestion: In the next update they should consider some sort of file management for scans. I would really like to be able to create folders to organise my scans.

Optimum Evrntd

Great product  Optimum Evrntd  5 star

What a great piece of software. I scan medical receipts, letters that I need to keep etc. and can swiftly scan and send an urgent document, received in hard copy, to an email contact. Wouldn't be without it on my iPad. Buy it's brilliant. - Martina Glennon

Guardian safety

Excellent app  Guardian safety  5 star

Great quality, can work faster than a traditional scanner. The flows are great, save lots of time and hassle.

Affluent Chap

Recommended scanner app.  Affluent Chap  5 star

Works well, simple to use and technically very clever. In general terms the quality of the scan is remarkable. Saves a huge amount of time and often eliminates the need to photocopy.


Time saver  Verdo1  5 star

Brilliant app. What a time saver. Instead of starting up a scanner and computer just whip out your phone and away you go. Can't praise this app highly enough. Would give it 10 stars but the limit is 5.


Scanner Pro  Kedleston  5 star

I recommend this App, excellent
