Scanner Pro Reviews


Great app has gone glitchy. :(  Davetydavedave  3 star

Jan 2018 update App is being glitchy now. Automatic edges not working and keeps causing phone to shutdown when I go in to manually select edges. Have been trying to scan and send a fax for several hours; guess I’ll have to use another scanner for now. I hope it gets fixed soon because I love this app! Previous review. I like automatic scanning, adjustments, and graphic user interface for saved documents. Have tried many scanners; this is my go to.


This app has saved me so many times!!!  Silcioj  5 star

My kid is constantly losing school papers. All I have to do is get another parent to take a pic of their kid's paper and this app converts it into a perfectly printable document! 💕💕💕


Well supported!  Dzylon  5 star

Thanks for not ditching this version of the app and making me pay for a new one! I left the iOS ecosystem for a few years and I noticed a lot of developers did this, but you didn’t 🙂


Incredible  frostypond  5 star

This app quickly takes high quality scans that are just as good as the scans I would get from a real scanning machine. I love that it scans in black and white or in color. So worth the money.

AmyBear DJ

Better than Evernote for saving PDF anywhere from iPhone  AmyBear DJ  5 star

ScannerPro allows you to save your scans as PDF *via iPhone* anywhere you like! :) (But, Evernote scans remain hostage, unless you’re on a MacBook/iMac, which offers the right-click feature ‘Export to PDF’, and download option. The result concatenates a multi-page PDF into one long ticker-tape-looking doc!)


Why no “share” using gmail app?  Gdgarner  4 star

If I remember correctly when I first purchased this app I was able to share using the gmail email app but now it seems that an update at some point removed that ability and forces us to use solely the Apple email app and I HATE that app. PLEASE add the ability to use whatever email app otherwise I would give a 5 Star review.

Banjo Nancy

Perfect!  Banjo Nancy  5 star

After much you tube research into scanners for my iPhone, this one is ideal for scanning several hundred pages of sheet music into my iPad Pro. I've recommended the Scanner Pro to other musicians and they are also very happy with it. Thanks for a great app at a great price!

Incessant Flare

Great Scanner App  Incessant Flare  5 star

Hands down the best business app available. Not only can you scan, you can fax right from the app for around $2!!Very user friendly. It has saved me a ton and the lives of many trees. Don't delay, purchase it now!

Craig Sequira


This app used to work so well on my brand new iPhone 7. But when I updated to IOS 11, the app has started crashing and restarting my entire iPhone as soon as I start clicking pictures and editing the borders. I wish the app worked like how I used to use it before.


Keeps sayin no connection.  mikein21061  1 star

Every time I try to fax it. Super annoying. I’ve tried with WiFi and without.

little miss yellow

Was a great app, but now crashes with new update!  little miss yellow  2 star

New update causing the app the crash 2-3 pages into a scan, please fix! Love this app and have been using it for years.


Love it  jatstar.81  5 star

Such a great app. Intuitive and simple to use. Well worth paying for.

Pross Haulage

Not working  Pross Haulage  2 star

Hi this app has stopped working with the IOS 11 update keeps closing


No better than taking a photo  FinnViking11  1 star

The scan quality is terrible, pages are out of square and desk background in the scan, wavy lines, no print option. No different than if I just take a photo and crop it myself. Waste of money.


Excellent  Duffybird  5 star

Very useful app. Thank you!


Best app purchase in a long time  Sixpaces  5 star

This scanner app has saved me so much time and allowed me to be a lot more organised with my paperwork. I can actually scan my documents on the fly now instead of keeping them in a pile to do all in one go when I'm at the scanner. Love it!

Dr Spaldo

The best scanner  Dr Spaldo  5 star

I’ve tried at least 10 different scanners, including a few paid ones. None come near Scanner Pro. It is the best all round scanner for quality, recognition and conversion. On top of this, it has a great filing system where you can store your saved scans. Highly recommended.

Bah_La Bah_La

Great App!  Bah_La Bah_La  1 star

For daily receipts and formal documents, sometimes it's better than my scanner. The only catch is not so good to capture image at night time. Still a very good app. The scanner no longer work with iphoneX. Please check and fix.

Kath daynight

Handy when traveling  Kath daynight  5 star

This app has been invaluable when traveling and not having access to a computer or scanner. Simply open the app, take a phone snap of your document(s), and email away. Has helped me complete unexpected business whilst away.


Scanner Pro 6  Rhobbo4  5 star

Great app, very easy to use

Brace war hound

Makes organization easy  Brace war hound  5 star

I am on the road working all the time out of my truck. Scanner pro makes it easy to scan and send my receipts for credit card purchases. I love it!


More like “scammer pro”  raccoon12  1 star

Don’t expect to do much with this app unless you are willing to do ‘in app’ purchases. This is not evident until you purchase. #sad


No better scanning app  kevlawr  5 star

Don’t waste your time with any other scanning app. Just pay the money and get this one.


p good, needs a minor feature added  Cpffface  4 star

would be absolutely perfect if it had the option to just "scan" (i.e., deform a portion of an image to align with the edges of the image frame) without modifying the image at all in terms of color, contrast, brightness, etc.; as is, it's an exceptionally useful and well-designed app that works as advertised. (i use it quite often when working on large artworks that won't fit in a scanner, and it works fabulously for that, except that it alters the color/contrast/brightness etc. no matter which color option you select (b&w doc, b&w photo, color doc, color photo) - which, as you can imagine, isn't super optimal with image work (where getting an accurate + faithful reproduction of the piece is important).)


Best Pocket Scanner I have used  1realdivaintx  5 star

Easy to use and share documents. Anyone can easily use this app.


Good Stuff  Joe4567893  5 star



What a lifesaver!  Firelfly  5 star

Love this app so much! Scans as good as my flatbed on the desktop, and a lot less paper in my life.


saving to folder BROKEN!!  no237  2 star

decent app. does pretty good job of scanning documents. just turn off automatic mode. it doesn’t do want you is useless and wastes your time but my real beef right now is i am stuck with a HUGE scan that took me over one hour to create at the library, which i evidently have no way to get to a computer other than emailing it, which is probably going to hit mail server limits!


Very useful  LVSafetyGeek  5 star

I like how easy it is to use and how it integrates to cloud services.


Awesome!  CaptTB  5 star

I've been using this app for years, it is everything you could want from an app like this. It's easy to use, versatile, faxing is cheap and easy (I rarely use that function but the couple times I needed to it worked flawlessly) It's a 10 star app in a 5 star rating system. I have recommended this app to everyone I have spoken to that needs to scan, email or fax documents while not near a computer, scanner or fax machine!
