Scanner Pro Reviews

Md-11 best captain and pilot

USELESS CAN’T RECOGNIZE TEXT👎🏼👎🏼👎🏼  Md-11 best captain and pilot  1 star

This apps is useless and wasted my money. This apps cannot even recognize a text from HD photo. Go and buy other apps.


Business card import is only missing feature  ORHobbes  5 star

This is by far the best scanner app I’ve ever found, and I have bought dozens. It has a simple interface, OCR text recognition, iCloud document sync and backup, PDF or JPG export options, great editing tools, and Workflow integrations. The only thing it’s missing that other scanner apps offer is a business card scanner that can take the text from the card and let your create a contact in your address book. Other than that one missing feature, it’s perfect.


Doesn’t email properly  amitsmistry  2 star

This app is an essential tool for where I work. That being said, I am unable to send emails to myself using the share feature, which in turn, makes doing my job much more complicated than it needs to be.


Great app  Ninjaaxbox  5 star

Thanks for this wonderful app


Good so far!  Iaintgotnostinkingnickname  4 star

I really can’t say anything bad about this app! I had previously been using Cam Scanner, which is awesome, but sometimes the person receiving said documents would get stuff practically billboard size! Hopefully, I will have reason to change this to a 5 star rating in the near future! Nice job!

Citric Caffeine

Frustrating!  Citric Caffeine  1 star

Some scans are not showing up in the app, yet shows up in iCloud. Why??? 😤

DavidO RN

Scanner and ocr  DavidO RN  5 star

The app blew me away, my wife had an out of date printed template that she need to edit for work, I went to the Windows store to find something that would work with my PC, it would cost me $300to $400, no can do if you know what I mean. I took up my iPhone turned on Scanner Pro, played with the app and discovered that it had OCR. I started scanning documents, sent it to my PC via email. And all worked well. Unbelievable


Great App  VicSmith  4 star

I use this app primarily for scanning music and sharing it to my forScore app. I have to first share to Adobe Pro, then from there to forScore. Would be better if I could share directly to forScore. Still this is the best scanning app for the purpose I have found.


99 cents to send a fax?  merryj525  1 star

Purchased pro version so I wouldn’t encounter extra fees. Who else knows what they have fee based in the pro version. Worst.


Upload freeze  punjiba  3 star

I’ve used Scanner Pro through many phones and mostly it works quite well. Lately though, I can’t open a multi page document I’ve scanned several days ago. I usually scan three or four pages and the view page has no page count and gives me a “Cannot Open Document” message. I’ve opened it and viewed the scans since saving them but I guess it’s trying to back it up again or something. I’m looking for another app because I have to be able to view a document when “I” want and not when it’s convenient for the app. Sorry Readdle, you dropped the ball on this one.

Muthu Mohandas

Fast Scanner App  Muthu Mohandas  5 star

I have been using this app for scanning pages on my Son school work. I scanned the pages very fast compared to conventional scanners. 90% of time is saved and I enjoy the app.


Annoying rating prompts  linzly  3 star

Too often asking to rate and files disappear after update


Makes everything a whole lot easier  SirPalo  5 star

I got the app during the “app of the week” deal, and started using it a couple of years ago. I’m now going through Year 10, and still use it for simple things, like downloading worksheets from teachers (and not losing them in my bag), and getting good quality photo’s of text work we need to study. A really helpful app, that I would recommend to anyone.


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.


Great, use it every day!  RandyAtKC  5 star

The scans are excellent quality. Easy to use application. Great organizational tools. My only criticism stems from the fact that I use the application all the time. I wish I could see the scans in the Apple file application or the Readdle Documents application. Then I could transfer all of the folders to external storage such as a lightning capable USB drive for backup. The only way to backup my scans now is to transfer them one at a time through the share process.


App needs improvement  TxCrocodile  2 star

I have owned this app and used it for years. It is nice to be able to scan all my receipts on the road. Recently more and more companies are emailing receipts and I have a need to compile these into a PDF and send them via PDF to our finance group. The problems are two fold. The only way to get the emailed receipt, whether it be a PDF or other type of document, into this app is screenshot it and then laboriously go back into the Scanner Pro app and import them into the app, where manual cropping is required. This contrasts with other scanning apps like Genius Scan which allows you to directly import them into the app itself from a menu that pops up in the actions tab (where you would forward the PDF or other document). Second problem is when the screen capture is imported, the quality is so poor that others cannot read the actual document at all. This is likely a compression problem or, more likely, a result of the Scanner Pro app trying to adjust the resolution/color to one of it’s four pre-determined resolution settings. I have asked Readdle to support the import direct function months ago with no progress shown. Therefore, I am likely making the leap to Genius Scan by Grizzly Labs until they fix these two issues. I do love Readdle apps and would easily assist them in explaining more as I truly believe they have an excellent suite of products. Problem is this is just not usable now for my circumstances.


I used to really like this app  bobbyleejones  1 star

But my scans are now getting corrupted. A simple scan of a few pages takes an hour because the scan pages get corrupted. Yikes!


What happened to Gmail app compatibility?!  Gdgarner  4 star

I used to be able to scan something, tap send, and select my gmail app to send it in an email... now the only emailing app that shows as available is the Apple mail app. Why did you guys seemingly remove the gmail app as an option? I don’t use Apple mail and I hate that app. Please bring back the option to use gmail.


OCR simply not working  bryn.r.owen  1 star

The look and feel of the app is great, but sadly I have never once had anywhere near a clean OCR scan on any document ... There are no controls for character recognition (except language) so there is no way to tweak results. I guess if you have a plain text document it may work, but in practice I have bills, DMV paperwork, receipts, etc. that have small graphics, and varied fonts, and those minor things are enough to throw the OCR waaaay off. The results are comical in many cases with single letters being recognized as multiple letters of vertical text! And there seems to be no predictive algorithm to help the OCR take a reasonable guess at words, so you get some letters correct but not all. I’d love to use this to simplify my life, but it is not ready.

Benny Honah

Cannot press take picture button  Benny Honah  1 star

5S running iOS 9.3.5. Cannot press the take picture button. No response renders the app useless.


Great scanner app - one feature request though  mattspeer  4 star

This is one of the best scanner apps I’ve used. Very good at detecting edges and auto cropping. I love that I can take scans and fax them but one thing is missing - here’s the feature request- it would be great if the scanner app had a share sheet extension so that I could get documents I didn’t scan into it for faxing. I’d rather have one app than have to download a separate app for faxing.


So slow now that the app can’t be used  MZ1MZ2MZ3  1 star

I’ve had this app for years and have always loved it. However, within the past couple of months it has gotten so slow that it is nearly unusable. I’m using an iPhone 6s and all of my other apps are working great - no slowdowns or battery issues here. It’s just this app that freezes when taking pictures, cropping, etc. This now happens every single time I use it. iOS updates have not helped either. Please look into this!


Confused  Tuti1980  2 star

So I am using this app and I sent a fax it says it sent and charged me 1.98 but I have yet to receive any kind of confirmation saying it was sent.


Can no longer create PDFs unless I pony up $9.99 for separate app  Lgqwerty  1 star

Seems like the app designer took away the ability to create PDFs that it had before. Makes it useless to me. Unless of course I want to be extorted into paying up an additional $9.99 for their separate pdf app

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.

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.

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.

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.

I use Scanner Pro both in and out of the office. It is much quicker than using my office scanner and it syncs directly to my google drive. Best productivity tool ever!
