Scanner Pro App Tips, Tricks and Rules

Scanner Pro Reviews


FAX SCAM  Skii  1 star

I like may thinks about the app: Upload to iCloud Collaboration with other Readdle products Ease of use, etc. But I HATE that you all have faxing listed on the description, but fail to add in-app purchases to the purchase button. Furthermore, when you’re in the app and go to fax a document, you’re prompted that the cost is 1.98. If that’s not an in-App purchase then i don’t know what is. So this is a SCAM. By not listing that there are in app purchases you are tricking the buyer into thinking that the fax service is free. I’m going to report this to Apple, not sure if much will be done. But if you’ve purchased this app you should report it too.


Amazingly simple  cnikkij  5 star

I never rate apps. But I had to rate this one. It’s incredible. Thank you to the other reviewers who convinced me to use this! I was using Tiny Scanner and tried iScanner. This one is perfect. It’s everything an app should be — intuitive, simple and efficient. You can have it automatically take the photos. They are very crisp. They are so easy to name and to adjust the color on. The app synced to my Dropbox effortlessly. When I upload subsequent documents to Dropbox, it pulls up the folder where I was before. Which is so great when I’m uploading lots of documents - cuts down on me having to click through all the other folders. I have a scanner on my printer 20 feet away from me, but this is so much faster and easier. I’m actually looking for more things to scan so I keep using Scanner Pro! Get it. Well worth a few bucks if you need a scanner app.


So powerful.....  Windkisssed  5 star

....Yet so easy to use! Who needs a copy machine...EVER! This scans the document, flattens it out and makes it look just like a flat scan. You can scan multiple page documents and rearrange the order of the pages. You can GROUP separate scanned documents. You can export documents. It has OCR capability that is so simple! Read, copy, paste! The longer I have this app, the more wonderful features I discover.


Color scanning  Mmmh01  3 star

Color scanning not so good. Every scan I do has blotches of color not in the original. Black and white scanning is good.


Good app but SO CRASHY!  fiferoony  3 star

Guys, this app is great, but for the love of all that is good and holy, it crashes ALL THE TIME! I’ve been trying to scan a pile of 10 pages and it literally has crashed with every... single... page. I have the updated software, full paid version, and a new phone. Fix this, please!!


No contest!  JasunXx  5 star

I've used a fair few scanning apps, and all had pretty much the same experience. I discovered scanner pro by accident and I was immediately impressed. I immediately purchased the pro version. The auto scanning is simply and unbelievably accurate and amazing. You will not regret purchasing this app.


Does not support multiple Dropbox accounts  JDP  4 star

Can’t seem to figure out how to switch between personal and business Dropbox accounts for uploads. I started using the Dropbox app for simple scans and uploads with account switching. Otherwise a solid app.


Couldn't be easier  fly_eagles_fly  5 star

I've used this for years and it is the most accurate quickest way to scan docs into PDF for emailing, text, etc. It's one of my must have apps


No Need For Full Size Flatbeds  MrM3000  5 star

The app works exceedingly well as a scanner and OCR. I no longer have to hunt for a copier or scanner, or wait until I get home to scan a document. I simply whip out my phone and scan just about any document in seconds! The processing takes care of most, if not all, the odd angles and shadows that you’re likely to encounter when snapping a pic of your documents. You can also upload the scan directly to cloud services or attach it to email and other apps. Buy it, it’s worth the money.


App crashes  ptubber  1 star

App crashes on me and is slow loading up. Makes my whole phone slow. I lost my 8 page document with sensitive info. I demand a refund for this purchase.


The best!  Kutso  5 star

Could not run my business without it

Phillip Tran

Great app!  Phillip Tran  5 star

Good for scanning documents, editing and uploading them to other devices via cloud or email.


Google drive folders  Vince5768  1 star

Takes forever to upload to Google Drive and you can’t even select a different folder from the default as each time you try to specify a different location a) it takes forever to load a Google Drive folder view and then shows the folders all messed up with no folder structure!!!


Excellent products, excellent support  HappySouthAussie  5 star

A big thank you to the Readdle Support Team especially Kate Murtazaieva.


Loses scans  OzJolly  1 star

Works well enough.... except that twice now it's lost all of my scans which has been very frustrating. If you are going to use, make sure you backup elsewhere.


Easy to use  Jssmith358  5 star

I've linked with drop box. Is a breeze to work with and is often the gap between my iPhone and desktop. Great for offical correspondence. Also archive receipts relating to warrantees or passports when travelling.

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.


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.


Love it!  BlueSapphire12  5 star

Use it all the time-even at work-faster and easier than going down the hall and logging into the scanner!

Great Apps


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

A great scanner for phone  Dirkapaedia  5 star

Scanner Pro is a great app! It's versatile, offering color as well as B&W document settings and higher resolution picture settings, saves to .pdf or .jpeg; and it allows you to rename and organize your scans in folders in app - and to upload to Dropbox, etc as well as to share via email, message, etc. I use it all the time for keeping a digital record of documents I have only in hard copy.
