Scanner Pro Reviews

🚨  5 star

The best scanner app hands down.. please add a PDF import


Great but makes shadow on white paper  trb321  2 star

Good app but when scanning a paper with a lot of white space it will shade in a shadow that I am not able to remove.


Almost a perfect scanner  VanSuHan  3 star

Been using this for a longtime and it works without any issues 99% of the time. It will be perfect if it can turn on your phones camera flashlight for scanning in dim light areas. There’s seems to be issue with color scanning. Documents are coming out with a blue color and I have to switch it to b/w mode to get rid of it. Other than these 2 issues, great app! 5*’s once fix.


Excellent  butcherbird190  5 star

My “go to” scanner for daily business use.


Easy for low volume scanning  JWMPT2000  5 star

I use this app weekly to scan 2-10 pages and immediately email them where they need to go. For high volume I prefer the auto feed scanner.


Awesome Scanner App  C-F-H  5 star

I’m dealing with a lot of probate and work that requires a lot of PDFs. This app scans quick and lines up perfect every time. Other scanner apps I had to manually align the edges. This app does what it’s supposed to and quickly. Highly recommended.


So useful  Powpowmachete13  5 star

I’ve owned this app for years. I have all my important documents scanned and saved. I’ve used it for numerous things from personal to business and school. Never had any bugs or issues. I’ve switched it between iPhones and have never lost any documents. Pictures are clear and look as if regularly scanned. I’ll always use this app and continue to refer it to my friends.


Love it  BLAFLA  5 star

Every time I have to scan a document, I give my old printer the boot and return to this app. Like it was mentioned in another review, this app takes amazingly clear scans and makes it super easy to share via text or email. I am very thankful to this app for saving me the time and aggravation of figuring out why my printer/scanner failed me.


Very Laggy in edit mode  AvgTechConsumer  1 star

The app freezes and laggs while switching pages in edit mode. Documents magically reappear after having being deleted. The app is bloated and heats up and crashes my iPhone 7 plus. This used to be a good fast app, no longer can recommend.


Great for business travel.  nProgress  5 star

Does what it says and does it well. Combined with a cloud upload I use it for all my travel receipts. I have had it crash (very seldom) but have never lost a document. I also scan our postal mail and send to appropriate inboxes on Dropbox for processing later and then I shred the mail. It keeps my counters free from daily mail clutter. I really like how you can create workflows in this app. It’s a must have.

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.


Excellent  Duffybird  5 star

Very useful app. Thank you!

Arsy Shell

Cant download OCR  Arsy Shell  4 star

The best application for managing documents. But i got error OCR plugins, I can not download it. Keep stopping at 0% :(


Email not working after update  JoesApp  3 star

This was solid until the update. Tried emailing a scan to tow different accounts, checked sapm of course, checked sent mail in the email account, nothing either place.


Great choice  VaBlueblrd  4 star

I’ve been using this scanner app for several weeks, and it was worth the few dollars I spent on it. It’s a great app, does pretty much what I want and is user friendly. I’m sure any issues I have with it are “pilot error”. I don’t give it 5 stars because sometimes the scanned photos aren’t the best, but 4 stars is pretty good. Keep the updates coming.

Angel sima

Doesn’t work properly on iphone se!  Angel sima  4 star

Really nice app i’m using it for years on my ipad and iphone but recently the app works too slow on iphone- se and crashes after taking 3 or more photos.


“Was” great !!  Dr.Almutairi  1 star

Used to be great ! Now it crashes every time I try to use it !!


Can't save or use files  Trtgghjjj  1 star

This app seems to scan ok. But I can't figure out how to use the scanned documents. I would like to save and email the scans. But this app doesn't seem able to do it. Every few months I try again but get frustrated because there doesn't seem to be a way to do it.


Add persian(farsi) recognitions in ocr  Ooooqpoooo  5 star

Tanks developers. This app need increase persian language to ocr technology


Wonderful app but still something need solve  Whiskey-Yankee  5 star

In recent updates during June to now, the workflows settings will happen to disappear. I do not know how that happened. I observed every time the app updated, my iPhone restarted, but the issue seems not to appear regularity.


Works for me!  [email protected]  5 star

This app uses the iPad camera to take clear closeups of docs-- I am likely a basic user with simple needs for financial, legal, and medical documentation and I am well pleased.


used to work  guitardist  2 star

I've depended on this app for a while, it seemed solid. Recently my scanned files are not always showing up in my cloud. I can see the scans in the folder section of the Scanner Pro app, but no matter how much time I wait, the files won't upload or re-upload to the cloud even if they were there last week. Turning off the cloud service, then turning it back on does not help. Every once in a while a file shows up, but has lost its name and is titled with the scan date. I don't trust this app anymore. Edit: I have renamed and uploaded all my files to dropbox from the scanner app. I've disabled auto-update to both the icloud and dropbox, that feature is not working for me on an iPad Air 2. This is scary if you're dealing with important papers- don't assume your files are safely stored.

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

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.

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.


Best Mobile Office Tool  Weickl  5 star

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!
