TransferWise 💸

- Great fit for work application

This app works like you would want it to, I work in an industry where measurements are taken in the field , and then transferred to shop layouts/cut sheets. I live 45 minutes away from our shop so not only does the app save time, it also saves money by allowing me to send in quality cut sheets from anywhere, and saving me the time from having to drive to our shop everyday. I don't have a fax machine at home. I use pdf to send them, and my boss simply opens the pdf file sent to his email, prints the cut sheet, and within minutes our shop is fabricating the work. What used to take a minimum of 24 hrs, now takes minutes, and every scan can be saved to the cloud or other devices, so instead of carrying physical paper cut sheets around until the jobs are completed, it's all on my phone if an installer has a question, I simply open the file for reference. If there is anything negative that I would be forced to say, it's make sure you clean your camera lens, which is user based not the app. And hold your device as still as possible to get the best scans. Great app, and a huge help in my profession.

- One improvement needed. Another suggested.

Well, I like the app a lot. Use it every day. Definitely recommend it. Best in AppStore, and I’ve tested many. The improvement I’m missing is quite simple: 1) after you frame the document, you should be prompted DIRECTLY to name it. Could be by default or by have that feature in the menu. For example. I finish framing, I go to next screen to export it. The document has the document+date as it’s name. But I have to click to edit, then edit the name, then back to export. Skip that and after the framing ask the user to name the document. You can still maintain the default name, but it needs to be “selected” in a way that when the user types, the text disappears. If he wants to keep default, he/she’ll only need to click on “done”. I hate have to click to edit the name every time and then get back. Not intuitive. This would make things lot easier. Again, not all people may agree with this feature, so having a toggle to activate it would be cool.

- Suggestion

I love Turbo scan, I’ve been using it for years now. I am also using the turbo fax app. There are several other scanning apps out there, but I still like this one the best because it gives the option to save as a photo image so it gives me the most flexibility when saving things and using them in other apps (like apps that let you change PDFs). But I have a few suggestions. 1. Is there an option for auto scan? I’ve noticed that adobe scan has that option and it is extremely handy, especially for people with hand disabilities. I recently had joint replacement on both of my thumbs and I have the iPhone plus, which is challenging to hold even with two good thumbs, but impossible with no useful thumbs. So, it’s extremely challenging to hold the phone and hit the button to take the picture/scan. But in Adobe it does it automatically. So I’ve had to scan in Adobe and then save to TurboScan. 2. This is my major request. I have upwards of 175 documents that I’ve scanned in. Organization is my issue. I do save them to “my files” in iCloud. Or sometimes in Dropbox. Because I can make folders and albums etc. But I want to keep them in TurboScan as well. I need to be able to group my docs by subject. (My son’s stuff from school. My stuff for work. Etc) So, please consider adding albums and folders like is available with the iPhone files app or Dropbox etc. Thank you for listening. Best, Kristin

- Tried all: this is the best

Update: Still the best. I’ve been using this for years and it is flawless. Sometimes I need OCR and go elsewhere, but TurboScan is so much better for every other use that this is my go-to. I’m currently trying to find a free scanner than my students can use while distance learning, so I’m going back through the list of “best scanners” and trying them all out again. Nothing compares. You’d be amazed at how many scanners don’t allow you to save or export an image file. This is the best. 2016? I am a scanning nerd. I have tried all the top-rated scanning apps (stupidly, paid for them all). I also have a hand-held DoxieGo. This is the phone app. I use it to take photo notes of whiteboards to save class notes, and to take easily readable scans of books. My students are amazed at the difference between my take-away notes (turbo scan) and theirs (camera). Excellent as-is. Never change.

- This scanner is best

I have used Turbo Scan now for several years - it is great. I use it to scan large blue prints 22" x 34" and can then email it or print on smaller paper. This app lets you "frame" or crop in order to pick segments of a document/picture. Other scanners are not user friendly for scanning large prints or even a "white board" and then print on letter size paper. Don't waste time and money on other apps ( I have tried several others and they can't compare to this one). A previous update removed the ability to scan a "white board" from a distance with clarity. Current scanned image is very small and framing is difficult and then making the image larger is not clear. Previously I could zoom in on distant white board, then frame - image was very good. Would like to see this as an option. Currently I am using an iPhone 6+. I still rate this app as a 5 star. Update review 6/6/17 I asked for the return of the "zoom in" feature and the technical department responded. It helps with whiteboard scans or large sized drawings that would be difficult or impossible to get a good scan. If rating scale went higher than 5 it would see a 10 from me. The other updates that were made has truly made this the best scanner on the market. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED. Thanks Turboscan for making the best scanner app even better.

- Deeba

I love this app! I use it several times a day. (Tip: For products you buy, that you’ll probably want more of... take a picture of the package, using TurboScan. Then label it with searchable tags. Do the same with the instructions for your smoke detectors, and other important instruction books. Scan them, label them with searchable tags, and you’ll always be able to find those instructions.) There is one thing I’d like to request of TurboScan. Please get TurboScan working properly with Apple’s iCloud! The other great apps that I use to organize my life, (Clear, and Notability) share their data across all my devices! They do this, using the Apple iCloud. There has been no need to get another app (like "Documents", or some other thing) in order to have all my info in those, show up on all my devices. Everything in "Clear", and "Notability" just shows up... I didn’t have to do a thing to make that happen!! Why doesn’t TurboScan do that??? !!!

- Powerful business tool!!

This is one of the most useful apps of all time. If you are in business, you must have this app. When you are dealing with lots of documents on a daily basis, like I am, you can quickly use the app to photograph the document. The app then adjusts the edges of the document and makes you a nice, clean PDF of the document. You do not have to carry papers around, nor worry about losing paperwork. You have your whole set of documents in your pocket at all times. Also, you can easily email, text, etc a single page, multiple pages or the entire set of documents in a file quickly. You can even scribble notes on a napkin, take a photograph of the napkin and have a PDF document of your notes. I did that today. I cannot say enough good things about this app. God bless the person or persons who invented this application. Frank E. Barber Attorney at Law

- Scan any size document!

From the first day I scanned an oversized landscape design and emailed it to my professor, I have used and loved this app! Did you spend three hours compiling all of the medical and other paperwork for your little darling to go to overnight camp, (with an organization that still insists you print out everything and hand fill out forms!), then dutifully emailed it according to all of the directions, drive five hours to drop her off, only to find out that “something” went wrong on their end, and they don’t have any of your paperwork? No worries! You’re the smart mom who expects someone else to drop the ball; you always scan all important documents, email them and retain them in the app. So, with three clicks, you have resent them to the camp counselor, and your child is already running toward the first activity. *smug high five with your stunned spouse*

- Great App! Developers are amazing!

I love this App and use it almost everyday. But it has become slower since the latest updates to iOS. It will work fine for the first few scans, but then the camera will begin to lag, or processing time becomes 3, 4, 5, times longer. When selecting multiple docs for a batch upload, the selections are laggy and scrolling is slow. I’ve tried restarting my phone, which helps again for the first couple scans but then begins to show the same problems. To the developers, PLEASE optimize it for the latest iOS and my 6S Plus. I would very much appreciate it! :) Thank you for releasing and update so quickly! I will be heavily using this app in a few days and would be very happy to have it operate quickly as it has been in the past. Thank you again for listening to your customers! 😀

- Best app idea ever!

I have been using this app since its start and it has always been my go to application for keeping track of whiteboards, napkin doodles, business cards, papers, documentation. Anything you have on paper that you want digital this is the perfect app for all your needs. It cleans up all shadows, old discolored "white"-boards and gives it a beautiful copy in digital form. It also can be used for grabbing recipes, articles you want to keep from magazines, or even the mound of scrap papers shoved in wallets and I would guess purses. Love it and it has been a consistent and solid performing app. FYI there is *NO* OCR or Business Card to address book integration. That is not its purpose. If you need these features I would look to Microsoft OneNote as it scrapes images for text. The mobile version of OneNote, the last time I used it, was horrible.

- My multitasking must have

I’ve been using TurboScan for at least 5 years now. I had gotten the app for one single use. I figured I’d delete it when I was done using it that one time. Clearly I never did delete it. I was always using it! We’ve been through some pretty amazing times together. Updates, changes, bug squashing, you name it we’ve been through it. Seamlessly might I add. Never a glitch, hiccup or crash. Every time I whip out my phone and use it for one of its many uses; people are in AWE. Literally! Being my 49 year old self this of course makes me look pretty cool and definitely more techie than I really am. It’s an amazing multitasking app! You too can look cool and techie with TurboScan (that’s my line; don’t steal it)!! Techie with TurboScan is also mine. Don’t. Just don’t. LOL! Yes, I most definitely recommend this app :D

- Excellent App

I’ve been using this app for over 5 years. As a college student it helped me make up missed notes, copy ppt slides, and saved me the cost of a few of those ‘buy my $300 book for this class and we’ll use it twice before you resell it for $10’ deals. In the workplace, this app was even more valuable. Especially when I was working in the field, I could quickly create a clean-looking pdf scan, email it to billing, and by doing so back it up in the cloud. A minute while parked at the job site on this app and I’d leave a job site with my part of the deal done and backed up. NO MORE LOST INVOICES!! Definitely a five star app. It is among my most valued apps, if under-appreciated. It’s one of the only apps I have that I’m a bit sad that it took me (probably over) five years to write this rave review.

- Love it

I’ve been using this as my primary scanner for years and I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed it until now. The framing and focus is remarkably reliable compared to other scanner apps and I find the interface very intuitive. I stay organized with a couple of key notebook and file storage apps that have their own integrated scanners that work pretty well but I still find myself using TurboScan for plenty of documents that the others seem to struggle with for whatever reason. It stores and exports documents great on its own, it allows you to export in a variety of formats easily, and is just a really easy way to augment the abilities of your other productivity apps. I only spent a few dollars on it and it’s been a great go-to for years now - easily the best money I will ever spend in the App Store

- Look no further

I haven't tried any other scan apps because I haven't needed to. This one is excellent. I work on the road for a small charter airline and need to get documents to HQ taking pictures in less than ideal lighting conditions. Turbo Scan does a marvelous job w B&W or color. Easy interface. Never had crashing probs. Sometimes tells me I'm low on memory, but I ignore and have never had a problem. Highly recommend. Dec 2015 update. Still awesome. They just updated so the 3X taking scan (photo) is just one click now. Good job folks. Dec 2017 update. Sorry for the broken record, but still loving and using this app a lot. April 2018 update. Not just because I want these programmers to succeed, but also because I use the app all the time. It’s great. You won’t be disappointed.

- Very handy for teachers

I use this to upload documents to Dropbox or Google Drive for my students to download: handwritten notes from a student, chalkboard images, graded assignments, etc. It is fast and accurate and easy to use with enough options to be useful but not overwhelming. Since I got it for classroom use I've started finding more and more uses for it at work and at home. So much more useful than just taking a camera image, and so much more convenient than a scanner/printer, and it's the only thing that can easily grab my chalkboards and turn them into documents. Thanks for this app, I have been recommending it to my students and to friends and family. Edit: continues to be updated with new features and usability improvements. Highly recommended.

- Still the best.

Have been using TurboScan for about 8 years now. My best TurboScan story: I was asked to go to court to pull and copy some legal documents (70 pages)! The local copier was down at the court and the client was desperate. I launched TurboScan and was able to scan and email all 70 pages - and this was on my old iPhone 4s. I was a bonded courier for a while and could easily supply proof-of-delivery signatures while still at the delivery point without needing a separate device to record the signature. Still use TurboScan years later to scan everything. Like the framing ability, shade adjustment and direct-to-pdf functions. The interface is just right. Not too busy, but every function can be gotten to quickly. If you need to record things on the go, get this app!

- Excellent app.

I am pleased with TurboScan. I have scanned numerous parts manuals that are actually very thick. I keep all of my receipts handy with this app. I also use it to scan documents that had to be filled out and signed and then emailed to whom ever. I have only had an issue one time in the passed, and that was while I was in the middle of scanning in a rather large manual I was just ejected off of the app for what ever unknown reason and all my progress was just gone leaving me to start over. This happened maybe 3 times then I gave up. I will say that I have no had this issue since. Perhaps it was a bug that popped up after a lengthy Time using the app that has now been resolved. I also use TurboFax as well and couldn’t be happier with both applications!

- Really appreciate this app! Thank you

I have come to rely on this app for tons of personal & work obligations. I never need a fax machine any more. Fabulous😘 The very first day I got this I was in Staples store in Alexandria Va making copies, and a young foreign exchange college student was trying to fax about 25 pages of important documents to her college... It would have cost her over $25... She allowed me to assist😊 I used Turbo scan and emailed all her documents safely free of charge. I have used it even to fax important signature pages on contracts!! This app has never failed!!! Thank you very much! I really appreciate your app!! I also use it to document just about everything! I just finished copying all our flight itineraries, hotel info etc for or up coming trip!! All in one document AWESOME SAUCE!!! Thank you😊

- Turbo Scan

This is the best scan app I have tried. It scans in black and white and color. It has improved from the last time I accessed it. The quality fax is a amazing. I have tried another app but I was not impressed. Find myself always using this. Don't get turned off if you take a picture of the document to be scanned and phone shadow is reflected on it. The end result will be flawless, if it is a black and white. Not sure what will happen if it is in color. I give it five stars because it is worth to have. You scan and email right from the app. How awesome is that. They also offer a fax app that has a cover sheet. You have to pay to fax. I have not used it but I have it on my phone if the need arise. Please try...highly recommended.

- Excellent App

I am a real estate agent here in Tennessee and purchased this app 5 years ago for $1.99 and it has worked flawlessly ever since the purchase! Sometimes I'm in a customers home our out In the field and don't have access to a printer so I scan and email the docs straight from my phone as to comply with State Law in regards to providing my client with copies of what they signed immediately! The company keeps the app up to date and that's important with the ever changing technology market. This is an app that I have found myself relying on more and more everyday because I know it's always there and reliable and up to date! Gives you the option of sending your documents via text email or what ever else you may want! Excellent app!

- I love it so much I've gifted it twice!

This is one of the few apps I consider to be "indispensable". I love it so much I have actually "gifted" it on two different occasions to two different people who insisted that they could simply take photos of documents and mail me those photos, but after we struggled with the bad quality of their photos and trying to adjust those photos, I just gave up fighting and sent them a copy of the app myself. Now they've each fallen in love with this app as well and have also become very vocal supporters. To all you people not using this app and still using regular photos instead, stop wasting your time and everyone else's time – skip a single latte and buy this app and trust me, you will be much happier!

- 5 years later still my favorite app

TurboScan is my essential Go-To app. I scan docs, receipts, pics, passports, meeting notes, shopping lists, then I email them to myself for easy search the titles have the year and subject. Or email them to someone else for their reference. Also when somebody sends me a document to sign I simply print the pdf file, sign the document file and scan the signed document back into a pdf to be emailed back to the sender. Scanner in my pocket. I can then dispose of the paper document because I can always find what I am looking for through Search. All this on my phone with a few seconds of app time. Love it. Resolutions are great. The new 3x capability is nice to have but 1x is so good I don’t find 3x necessary.

- What a great scanner !!

This is surely one of my most beloved apps. I am a professor and write out lecture notes for my classes at Carnegie Mellon University, then copy them with this app and distribute the copies to my class. This app is great. I've been using it for the above purpose for many years. The only (slight) improvement I would request would be an option to have the initial framing be a tiny bit larger, so it would include my notes at the very margins. Sometimes those get cut off and I have to manually enlarge the frame. No biggie, but it would be nice to have the option to request larger framing from the get go. In any case, this is an absolutely awesome app. 5 years later, still using it, still finding it one of my most beloved apps.

- Fantastic product!! Un beatable price!

Highly recommended. Easy to use. Updates periodically which means u won’t waste your money with an app whose developer decides not to update when there is a iOS update and render the app useless. This app is reliable and priceless!!!! Perform as advertised, well even better! As I'm doing taxes I can not believe how reliable, fast, easy to use, and high storage capacity this app is!! An absolute must have for anyone !! From scanning a love note from your child to a expense report check - or an article while browsing a magazine - anything. Very useful and affordable !! Can't say enough good things about this! As this makes my life so simple but yet so rich as I keep memories that otherwise will be simple gone!!

- Outstanding APP

If you don’t have it you should unequivocally have this on your phone. I don’t remember how much it was but it is so useful and handy in those few times you need that it is indispensable. I’ve had it about six months and used it about 12 times and it sure beats running to Staples or some other place you can’t find forget about the fact that it’s free and immediate once you pay for the app. So easy to use. I just scanned a plot plan and sent it to my engineer. The plan was rolled upWrinkled mess and I did the three times scan and it came out as good as anyone could imagine – and imagine that! It came from my iPhone and was sent to him immediately. Download it now you won’t be disappointed.

- Exceeded my expectations!!!!

I use this app mostly at work. I make PDFs of parent notes, tests, letters I receive from parents, notes from lessons for students who are absent--basically, anything and everything I want to keep a record of. I also use at home to make PDFs of anything that requires me to sign and return--forms, letters, applications, etc. I also scan any worksheets that I come across in my children's homework, which I think are useful for my students and email them as PDFs to my myself and colleagues to print and use. The quality of the documents I scan is excellent and it's so easy to email them as PDFs. I am impressed and I always recommend it to anyone needing a scanner. 5 stars and then some!!!

- Best Scanner

This App is amazing. It Keeps getting better, they add value often. I've had this App for a few years, and haven't used an actual Desktop Scanner since getting this. You can merge multiple pages into one pdf or jpeg and email right from within the App. It saves all previous scans too, in case you want to go back and find old scans. Highly recommended. With iOS 11 and a built in scanner app that lets you use Apple Pencil immediately after scanning to sign documents and email back, they need to add this functionality fast. I love this app but ease of use is always the better option, and i will use this app less and less and start knocking off stars.

- Can’t organize scans into folders. Can’t use OneDrive.

Really thought this app would be impressive given all the strong ratings. However, I was surprised to learn that there is absolutely no way to organize scanned items. It looks like everything just gets dumped into one big folder. Strange that a document scanning tool offers nothing in the way of document management. I want to keep business receipts, personal receipts, legal documents and other information all in one place but without a way to add some kind of taxonomy, this would quickly become a painful proposition. Also, I would like to be able to upload scanned items to OneDrive. Why only iCloud backup? Seems like a bit of a constraint. Not everyone likes to keep their data in iCloud. Hoping I can get a refund because I wouldn’t even use this app if it were free. Too many other, better, more flexible, better designed scanning applications out there.

- It's not just a picture

Great app but every time I use it in front of someone they think I'm just taking a picture. It corrects the lighting and throws some kind of filters on it to turn documents into crisp black and white pictures ready to email. It's so much quicker than shlubbing to the scanner. And of course awesome when you're somewhere other than the office. Try it and you'll find yourself using it all the time. My only small issue with the program is that if I am listening to music or an audiobook the app will turn the sound down to a very low volume. Seems kind of odd that it even has anything to do with the volume control. It would be nice if this was fixed.

- Fast, Simple, Easy to Use... Best App For Scanning !

While traveling for business I need to quickly scan and log my daily expense receipts the moment I get them. Whether it be a physical paper receipt or an emailed copy. Three reasons why Turbo Scan is Golden to me: 1. I can quickly pull my phone out at the point of sale and scan new receipts the moment they are printed. (That way I don't have to be constantly searching for tiny little slips of paper that are so easy to loose) 2. I can also import expense receipts that I receive via email (like car rental and hotel receipts, not always present when those are totaled) 3. Then most importantly when emailing my monthly report I just tap 'add attachment' , select Turbo Scan, scroll down to the appropriate scan log and attach it to my report. All from my phone. No more paper. No more desktop printer / scanner combo. It's important the scanning app works well within your phones OS so that you can easily import / export content to / from other apps and email, etc... and Turbo Scan does this well. That's why I give it FIVE stars ! It's made my life a whole lot easier ;-)

- BE$T app!

I I use it multiple times a day, every day! And when I have to submit legal docs immediately, the receiver is always pleased and impressed by my TurboScans I use it multiple times a day, every day! And when I have to submit legal docs immediately, the receiver is always pleased and impressed by my TurboScans am a freelance contractor. I mostly I use TurboScan to send invoices to clients and my agents. I live in NYC and don't have the free time to personally drop them off. These get me paid on time! Even my agents ask me which app I use to recommend to others. I've even used it to send legal documents in lieu of a fax machine. Being able to resize the image is awesome. AND I can access all of my invoices in 1 app!! LOVE LOVE LOVE.

- Great, easy to use software

I use this app every day to scan documents, checks, receipts etc. It works quite well, basically just like having a scanner in your phone. One thing I would like to see: a document type/size setting for checks! When I shoot them now, whether the camera is held landscape or portrait, if I’m saving it as a letter size document it always rotates the page layout to match the check (longest dimension to longest dimension). But that’s not what I want. I want the check to be displayed roughly to size, oriented so it’s upright, on a portrait letter page (long dimension to short dimension), when I’m shooting it that way. It doesn’t want to leave it alone. :)

- Turbo scan.

This is the first app I bought, several years ago and a couple of phones ago. I use it all the time, for real estate documents to send quickly to title or another agent or for recipes and articles found in magazines in doctors’ offices. The program was shown to me by seat mate on an airplane when I just got my I-phone 4, and as a contractor he used it a lot. It has saved me hours and miles in my business and life in general. I’ve recommended TurboScan to hundreds of people. I use it several times a week, as I am often out of the office, lacking such machines found there. My friends and clients are amazed at the quality of the scans, too. Linda G 719

- Fantastic app!

Long gone are the days where we had to have a dedicated scanner with crappy software to hook up to a computer in order to scan household documents when requested from outside agencies or for archival which was followed inconsistently anyway because it was too much trouble to set up. So easy to use TurboScan in the fly with great results even for 11” X 17” documents, Can email as PDFs immediately, totally flexible for rapid response items to get things done with no nagging back of your mind “when I get around to it” procrastination. Retain cars proof of insurance docs, download from insurer and email to others on your policy. Too many uses to mention.

- Great tool

I use this scanner app to scan hand written reports in the field for work. I can then search for any past report in the field. I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago. I forget how much I paid for it but it is worth ten times as much. I have been telling everyone about it. It is logical and well thought out. Push one button and the scan will automatically be emailed to you. You can also start files with a collection of scans. I use a file to keep track of my monthly expenses or traveling expenses...no more paper receipts folded in my wallet! You will not be disappointed. It has some high def features that I don't use.

- Beats a scanner any day!

When I upgraded my Imac to a new one, you would think that software would exist that would upgrade my scanner as well, right? Wrong! HP did have an upgrade, but it ran so slowly that the scanner was basically rendered useless. Then I discovered Turboscan. For a mere 5 bucks I can carry a high-resolution scanner with me anywhere! I tend lose hard copy, so I use it for everything important: important letters I receive, last months bill, paycheck stubs. Give them a name, and throw them into a folder on my Mac, easy to find by name, or even scanning visually. Would give it a higher rating but 5 stars is as high as it goes! Thank you, Turboscan!

- LOVE this app!!

I’ve been using TurboScan for several years now and absolutely love it! It is SO convenient to be able to scan items by taking a picture of them on my phone, instead of having to be at home, with an actual scanner, get on my computer, etc. I can scan a document anytime, anywhere with just a few clicks and immediately email or text them to whoever I need to. I’ve never had any problems with it and no complaints ever about an image not being clear enough, etc. Looks like it was scanned on an actual scanner every time. SO easy to use. Again, love this app and highly recommend it!

- A Full Function Scanner in your Pocket

I have used this app for years. It is absolutely the best app on my phone (and I have some good ones). I use it for scanning, printing, documents, pictures, and recipes. It’s a great tool in bringing the”paper monster” under control. Scans are crisp, as good if not better than industrial printer/scanners I’ve used at work. The program makes it easy to send scans in a variety of formats- like pdf and jpeg. I have recommended this to my friends, who have marveled at the ability to scan on the go without having to go back to the office for the commercial scanner. I am currently using the app with an iPhone 7.

- Beautiful, invaluable app.

I’m in industrial sales and travel in my work and often need to scan documents, drawings, etc. of various sizes while in a customers facility. I stumbled on Turbo Scan in a magazine several years ago and have used it 5 to 10 times a week ever since. Have recommended it to several business associates who also swear by it. I prefer it to a flat bed scanner because of its portability (it’s always with me on my phone) and it’s ability to scan from magazines or stapled documents without disassembly. Plus its ease of sending documents to others from anywhere from my phone. Wouldn’t be without it.

- Best of the best. Been using for several years.

I normally don’t write reviews, but I can honestly tell you that Turbo Scan is my go to app for tracking expenses and scanning receipts back to my corporate office for items purchased and saving items for tax time. I love the ability to be able to change from photo quality to black-and-white to color-unbelievable scanning app been using since the first iteration of the iPhone. I don’t own any of the company I am not being paid anything from the company, (however I’d take a little bit of money if you want to give me some!) Just kidding. Nice job guys, keep up the good work with the app.

- I can't live without this app anymore

As the title states, this app has become an essential part of my job! I don't always have access to a scanner and this does the job nicely. Plus with some newer features like the password lock, I feel safer with my secure documents being on my phone without having to clear out my history due to HIPAA concerns. My only gripe is minor, namely that certain areas don't scan so well (large black spots for example) in the BW mode, it leaves a spotty white area inside the black. In all though would highly recommend this app to others especially if you deal with a lot of paperwork on a daily basis.

- Love scanner...lacks organization of scan

Love the scanner but the organization of the scans is lacking. If I scan receipts and put them in a “Receipts” folder....I cannot sort them. They are stored only by date ....that’s a pain. Also I cannot edit the date of the scan if I scan a receipt a dayor two after I make a purchase, thus the receipt is put of chronological order and harder to find. Looking fir a better source with great scanning and at least better organization ability as organization of scans is very important. I contacted the developer and they have not plans to add these features any time in the future.

- Mobile scanner For business people

I have recommended this Turbo scan app to no less than 20 people and I know at least three or four have purchased it. (Maybe more) When you need someone to send you one or two signature pages from a document and they take a picture of it with their phone and send you something that’s completely unusable, you just tell them to buy this app for five bucks Now you get an absolutely perfect PDF with a picture that is as clear as the camera on your phone. I want royalties for referring folks to purchase it. I use it every day. Best five bucks I’ve ever spent

- My most useful tool

A few months ago my property burned in the Camp Fire in Northern California. My home burned, but I made it out with my family, our truck, our horse, and the clothes on my back. I was left with my phone as my primary source of communication. A myriad of written communications and signed documents required from both government and insurance services we’re demanding. TurboScan made this process much easier. The quality of my TurboScan document was acceptable in every situation. I have enjoyed using TurboScan for several years, but I’ve appreciated the simplicity and quality more than ever over the last few months.

- Outstanding

I frequently need to grab a copy of a jazz chart for practice after a rehearsal. Since I can't take a part with me, I use my iPhone camera to snap a photo for printing later on. Problem is that I usually end up with a dark color shot that is hard to read. I have used TurboScan for a while now, and my only gripe is that if I need to scan multiple pages, while holding my trombone, it gets a bit tricky. It’s hard to hold my horn, and tap scan, then tap “done” on the top right, then “next”, the “+”, then scan another page. Can these all be in the same area on the screen, or toggled, like a soft-key?

- App of Excellence ⭐️

My review is long overdue. This stellar scanning app deserves all five stars and an additional honorary star for being one of the most user-friendly, efficient, highly useful (actually necessary), super well-designed app for both business and personal use. My brother recommended this app to me and sure enough, his own rave review of this app was over-hyped NOT ONE BIT, imho. I started off with the free version years ago and don’t recall exactly why I needed to upgrade or what extra features I needed, but what I do recall is that I felt it was so worth paying for. I am grateful to the developers for creating this when they did. TY TY TY.

- I must be wrong

Tried S/W on a multicolored page. Some background colors were darker than others and had a straight edge. The resulting scan only retrieved the areas containing text on a white surface and ignored the white text on a black surface. Also a horizontal series of color photos along the bottom edge were ignored. The scans were made in color mode. The attempts were made using a magazine that was on hand as a trial. Attempts to use multi-shots did not result in better readable results of the text. This was probably due to the movement of camera that souls occur if someone was hand holding the camera. Product is probably good for black on white . Just wonder about other situations. Fury the free version if it is available. Once you open an app it yours. Apple doesn't seem to believe in trial periods.

- Scans great, backup is terrible

The scan quality is great. It’s easy and convenient. I would have expected that recovering accidentally lost items was easier (or in my case possible). Even a simple “undo” button or a “trash” folder that periodically empties itself that you can recover unintentionally deleted items would make it worth the $6 you spend on the app. They would defend themselves and say that they rely on iCloud, which is somewhat valid in the case of a full backup or historic recovery. They could fix this ONE thing and I would change my rating to 5 stars. As it is I lost a massively important document that I cannot recover (and don’t have a hard copy of any longer) because the Derek’s function is the most unforgiving thing I’ve ever seen in an app that deals with documents

- Iconoclast App

TurboScan belongs to an elite group of apps that are truly "Jobessian"(relentless in the pursuit of beauty through simplicity and efficiency.) TurboScan will do to traditional scanners what the iPod did for walkmans a few years ago: they will be completely replaced! The only disadvantage to a traditional scanners is the inability to scan multi-page docs. I solve this problem by arranging up to eight (8) pages together per scan and the quality of the picture still quite good. Plus with TurboScan gone is the "inbox" or paper tray: paper goes from scan to cloud and hard paper discarded ipso facto (while practicing a strong backup system.) Love you TurboScan!

- Turbo Scan

So very pleased with this TurboScan app. Easy to use. Documents, business cards, pictures or what ever I need it for. I have a couple of other scan apps and really need to offload them because I just don’t need them as long as I have Turbo Scan. This app works perfectly and I always know my scans will be right there to view. Every option is available for me to send by email, save as PDF or JPEG, airdrop, transfer or a wide variety of other options. Great app and well worth the download. You won’t be disappointed unless you just simply don’t know what you’re doing!!!

- TurboScan is blazing fast and easy to use.

I purchased TurboScan when it first launched and use TurboScan daily. I predominantly scan documents, receipts, architectural and engineering drawings and I use the camera feature to take photos to post. Why! ... The incredibly small file size without loosing resolution makes it the perfect Swiss Army knife Scanner for your iPhone or iPad. TurboScan does exactly what it states and is worth every penny. I've tried other apps and they do not come close to TurboScans ease of use. Thank you, TurboScan team for making your app work seamlessly on all my devices

- Awesome, so handy!!

I use this app to photograph legal documents & court orders went out of the office and a photocopier is not handy/ broken. I scan them & email to myself and colleages in PDF. They save & print clearly, almost like any commercially scanned or photocopied a4 page (the same, if you adjust the frame correctly) The pdf can also be saved to dropbox directly from the iPhone saving hours of mucking around trying to move hard copies. This app saved my time and sanity frequently.

- nice little scan tool

using it every day for multiple months now I do enjoy this tool with it's simple interface and ease of use. As we are in sales and we travel a lot in the country side this tool saves me from traveling with a scanner. I can send my paperwork from anyware now using the BW PDF mode. Very happy and did saved me considerable amount of money from not using the fax in the post office :)

- Love TurboScan

It’s so fast and convenient to scan documents and receipts with TurboScan and email them to myself, with the option of jpeg and PDF. I use it far more than I thought I would. When someone asks me to send them something it’s usually a feeling of oh what a pain that will take a while, but I can even do it out and about, right there and then. It’s just fantastic.

- Fantastic app. Simple and works

I've had this app for years and I love it. It has just the right amount of functions to make it powerful and useful. It works every time. It's better than Adobe PDF scanner because I've tried both. This app captures the page detail better than the rest.

- TurboScan used frequently

I have been using this app for a long time now and including to scan commentary on tourist attractions where you often do not have the time to jot down the important info. My concern now is how to save the data on an USB rather than the cloud for long term use in family history matters/generational data before my iPhone dies and I lose everything even in the cloud.

- Turboscan

Crisp, quick and intuitive ! I recommended it to friends and colleagues. Amazingly, TurboScan can also be used to correct perspective in camera roll pictures!! Update: frame auto detection makes the job even quicker but seems to need some fine tuning I’m sure it will get.

- Great app, used daily

I use this app for time sheets, receipts, bank forms etc. Has the option of B&W, colour or photo. Auto save as PDF would be handy. Phone does not need to be directly over the document to scan, it will pick up and straighten your scan at odd angles, which is handy when you need more light or to avoid a shadow. Frame of image can be adjusted to snip any rough edges, Handy tool

- So much cheaper than an expensive receipt scanner app

One fee and your done!!! They are clear and date stamp so you take a photo at the register, email it to yourself and pop in a receipt folder when you do your accounts... so easy!!! No more receipts cluttering my wallet and office!!!

- Top app

I use this app all the time. If I need a copy of an agreement or any doc I use this instead of my copier / printer. Faster and much more convenient. It’s even better after an update allows all your .pdf’s to be saved in the cloud. I couldn’t be without this app. Get it. You’ll love it!

- TurboScan

Love TurboScan have recommended it to many of my clients to upload documents and sockets to their accounting software and to email through to me. It’s clear and readable makes theirs and my life easier so many of them have signed up now I should have invested in shares.

- Satisfied

I have been using Turboscan for some time now and it is quite simple & quick to make a clear copy on the go. It is great for scanning items you can't feed through a conventional scanner.

- Great app work so well for doc scanner

I like this app as it is very practical and easy to use to scan documents or anything then just send directly from your mobile phone.

- Love it

Has saved me hours and can use anywhere Got rid of my desktop scanner as I don’t need or use anymore Highly recommend this app as I have to many of my work colleagues and friends

- Powerful little app

Great, does exactly what you need it to do. The new updates seem to fix the problem I had with sending a full A4 page of a smaller image. This app is definitely worth the money.

- best app for scanning

This app came out years before the document scan function in iOS 11 and still works better than any other app I’ve tried.

- Handiest app ever

I recommend Turboscan app to everyone! It's fabulous. When I downloaded the app, I had to make sure I hadn't downloaded the free app which is full of advertising. I use Auto mode and it does the job really fast.

- Essential tool

This scanning tool is flexible, accurate and solves many problems dealing with hard copy documents. Hard to fault it's performance, accuracy and quality. Great for on the road use.


Update now requires one more tap to send email to self once email is created. Screen has to be scrolled up before send icon appears....not good. Should have send to self single touch after scanning.

- Turbo Scan

Haven’t had any complaints to date - the best feature is being able to set format for multiple choice applications

- Super easy to use

It follows my instructions well. I can easily send the scanned items to myself. But it does seem to smash the power on the iPhone 5. Probably a phone, not app, problem.

- I can do work on my mobile

I can easily turn photos into PDF or JPEG files. I don't need a computer desktop to send documents/photos captured in Turbo Scan. Productivity power!

- Awesome app

Highly recommended: I have used this app for years now through my divorce and managing my father’s estate after his passing. It produces high resolution documents that can be easily used for any reason.

- Marie

Amazing App! Would be lost without it. Every thing I purchase, I put on this app, so then I don’t have to keep my paper receipts. One stop shop at TurboScan! Thank you TurboScan, you make my life so much easier. Regards Marie.

- Brilliant!!

5 stars all the way. I use it all the time. Not just when I’m out and about, but it’s so good I happily use it when my fancy scanner in the office is playing up!

- I love it! Have been yes ing this app for years. Best scanner I have found

The best business tool I have found do far! Keep up the good work. Highly recommend this app to anyone.

- To old to retire

Excellent scanner for mobile. Easy reference record on my mobile as my work is away from the office most of the time.

- Love this app

It’s super easy to capture documents or send photos as Jpegs or pdfs. it’s just so simple to use and well worth the money. You get what you pay for and this just proves that.

- Brilliant and easy

A brilliantly functional and easy product to use. Can not recommend turbo scan enough.

- It's my portable photocopier.

So easy to use. Never had any problems with it. I use it to take photocopies of receipts. Then I send them to my email in PDF format in a couple of clicks. (For Tax time)

- So simple so powerful!

Everything is now scanned and emailed to myself. I have a backup of everything. Nothing is ever lost again.

- Ian Haughton

I find it really useful. Excellent value. I use several times a week and have recommended it to many others.

- A must have app

I scan driver licenses to A1 size plans with great results. Easy to use, crop and multi copy documents with a very simple pdf forwarding function.

- Great eScanning tool

I’ve been using this product for several years. I’ve come to depend on it and use it very frequently.

- Very satisfied

This is one of the most useful apps! I use TurboScan regularly it is easy to use, scans are great quality and conveniently saves or emails in JPEG or PDF.

- Happy customer

Great app, use it all the time, has never let me down. I would be lost without it. Thanks

- Exactly what I need

It does exactly what I need it to do. Great new features including iCloud backup. Even great for scanning photos and correcting edges.

- Fantastic App!

Please create the option to upload as PDF by default. Please create option to categorise receipt scans for taxation or accounting. Otherwise, fantastic app!

- Been using it for years. Love it!

Thank you for the beautiful app. Highly recommended.

- Happy Scanner

My first ever review! All time app! Been using it for years. We haven't used a flatbed scanner since. It's brilliant!

- Turbo Scan Review

I find it really easy to use, quick and simple, love this app! Helps me so much!

- Great app

I have ALWAYS loved this app. It's has been great for the last 4 or so years. Don't use anything else.

- Turbo scan pro terrible.

I bought this an within ten minutes realised it had some serious problems... Deleted and reloaded it, but still terrible. Crashes every time you try to take high quality scans. Now to try and get my money back......

- Handy App

I love and recommend TurboScan. I never use my scanner printer at home - TurboScan is so much easier.

- Great app

Such a great scanning tool when a scanner isn’t available!

- TurboScan

Tried several applications but this one is simply the very best.

- Money well spent!

Money well spent! This would have to be one of my most used apps! Love it!

- One of the best apps I have ever used

Amazing app, simple to use, very effective and great to have in your pocket.

- Easy to use app

I highly recommend TurboScan app. It's easy to use

- Great app

I use the app a lot. I hope the next update adds folders to keep all your scans organized.

- Ez scanning app

Awesome and Ez yet free? Who would have guessed?

- I use this app quite a bit

I mostly scan letter size pages of field data. Because my pages tend to get krinkled and occasionally rained upon, they don’t usually feed into my printer/scanner. This app is really great. I use it almost exclusively, it’s quicker and better results than manually feeding into the printer.

- Great app

I’ve used it for almost 7 years. Excellent app. Super affordable

- Drilling Supervisor

I have used this app hundreds of time very successfully and it has saved me tons of time versus previous scanning methods. I give this app a super high recommendation. I have used this app for more than seven years. Thanks Larry H

- Love this app

Love this app. Thank you

- One of the best iPhone Scanning Apps

I have used this app for many many years. It is fast and does a great job capturing images and scans. It sync backup to iCloud is a bonus. Highly recommend.

- Great app, hopeful for some added features in the future

I use this app frequently. I love that I can create a document name, use the search feature and that I can back up to the cloud. For some reason it isn’t adding images to my photos folder despite selecting that option in the settings. Also would love to see an options for folders, and the ability to sort documents to my liking. I would also like to see the option of locking some documents with a passcode.

- Great system.

They keep updating it that only makes it better. I highly recommend.

- Turbo scan is awesome

Best app of its kind that I have found. Very dependable, when dealing with legal matters it’s wonderful to be able to get a good copy and send it via email

- great little piece of software

very practical and useful excellent

- Rate it

I up loaded the app been using for few years for free You suggested I tell a friend and you want to charge them 9$ Realy Just lost my friend Cheers

- On TurboScan

I like it very much Thanks

- Excellent tool

I use this scanner nearly every day for so many things. It produces clear, straight pages. Love it!

- Best scanning app.

Best app for scanning out there.

- Observateur

Très performant pour mon travail en mer et autre endroit .👍

- Still useful after 10 years

Even after 10 years, and many other apps adding basic document scan functionality, I still find myself reaching for TurboScan for one reason or another. Today it was to scan a document from a photo someone sent me. With TurboScan it was quick and easy. Thank you again to the developers after all these years.

- Excellent app!

Been using for years with no problems and quality scans everytime.

- Very good app

Very good scan quality as compared to other apps. Using it since last 4 years and very satisfied with results.

- Great app - works every time. Have been using for years and years Highly recommend it

Luv it use it all the time! Never hangs, real easy to use

- Turboscan

I love how it automatically centres the page. I use TurboScan on both my iPhone and my iPad. I have tried several other scanning apps and found none of them even close to being as good as this one. In addition to auto adjustments it is very very easy to use.

- Best app ever

Best app ever

- Must have!

I've had this app for several years and have recommended it to friends. I love the new updates that allow several options for opening the file. For example I can scan my prescription and then open it in my medical app. It's a must have for those wanting to create digital records of documents.

- Turbo scan

...is superb! Works like charm!!:) has replaced my desktop scanner!

- 👍


- good app, over the years, TurboScan keeps improving,


- What has happened?

Since the last upgrade a fewDays ago, I haven’t been able to send anything from Turbo scan. I don’t know if it is your last upgrade or since I put OS14 on my iPhone. This it’s very useful but not if I cannot forward what I scan. HELP!!

- Intuitive

I’ve been using this app for a few years now and I’ve been really happy with it. It’s easy to use. Intuitive. Reliable.

- Best Scan App

I been using TurboScan since 2013. Every year it just gets better. I recommended to friend and family and they are also very pleased with the App. All my employees have TurboScan on their phones and they are able to submit receipts and paperwork faster. And in case they loose something they can always go to the app and print new copies if needed.

- One of the most useful apps on my phone.

I’ve had this app for years and I thought it was great when I had to manually crop every document I scanned. Now it recognizes the outline of the paper and crops automatically. A must have for things like medical claims submissions.

- It's pretty darn good.

I’ve used this app almost every week for 7 years. The improvements over the years have made it very good for scanning receipts or documents in the field and sending out.

- Great app

Great app. I’ve been using it for years. My only feedback at this point would be to add a feature that allows airdrop of documents. Emailing the documents to myself and downloading them onto other platforms seems a bit clunky in 2020. Edit: it’s possible to airdrop. But that feature is not quite as obvious to use. Requires a couple taps too many to be intuitive. But this is a superb app and I recommend it to anyone who needs to scan documents on the fly. Amazing value

- Use it daily Love it

Quick and reliable

- Best


- Easy to use

Ive used this app for a few years and I find it has many handy options and is easy to use.

- Excellent

I’ve been using this for years. No gimmicks. Just works great.

- Turboscan

Best app ever!

- Consistently good results

Easy to use. Scans even flip-chat sized paper with excellent detail.

- Turbo scan

Il ne manque que le mode sombre de l'application! C'est très bonne application, je l'utilise souvent a mon travail sur la route pour avoir des copies de mes documents. Le mode "Sure-Scan" est très efficace, avec aussi la possibilité d'exporté dans plusieurs compte (Drop-Box, Evernote, etc..) J'adore cette application!!!

- Great app!

I’ve been using this app for at least seven or eight years and I’ve never had a problem with it. Does an awesome job!

- Best app

I would recommend it to everyone I use the app a lot. I hope on the next update they will add a folder and order to be more organized.

- Amazing!

Gets the job done. Every. Single. Time.

- The best scanner! Simple and effective!

Simple and reliable. Works everytime, I can bring it anywhere!

- awesome app

I use this all the time. Great app. Functional and easy to use

- Works so damn good

been using it for at least 5 years, awesome

- Love it

I really do love this app. I was just telling my wife. I do use this all the time. Very easy. While the rest of the review is the stock answer provided by Turbo scan, it is also accurate. All important docs get quickly scanned. Easy to find them later. Easy to send them out too.

- Very useful app!!!

Worth buying!!! Highly recommended!!!

- J’adore!

Vraiment facile à utiliser

- Super functional

A very functional and useful app. Could use an overhaul of the UI, interface is banal.

- Best app purchase

I bought this app years ago when trying to sell my house. I’ve never regretted paying for it because it always works. I highly recommend it. 👍🏼👍🏼

- Life changing!

Fantastic easy way to send a high-quality image where I need it to go (emails, Google Classroom, etc.). Cropping takes only a second and the image quality is far better than our copy center scanners. My college student says it is indispensable because for her many projects absolutely everything needs to be uploaded to turn in to her professors and she can’t imagine not having this. It’s also great because we can go back and retrieve scans as well. I couldn’t be nearly as productive without this tool. Best few dollars I’ve ever invested to save time and aggravation!

- Best app! I've been using it for 5 years and nothing can compare!

I use this app for everything. Making copies of deposits when I go to the bank, copies of legal documents to email out, copies of my son's homework so he doesn't have to do it again if he loses it. Just email it to the teacher and call it a day. Amazing app that has outstanding quality. One time I got a scanned copy of a legal document from the district attorney's office. You could barely read it. Luckily I had a turbo scan of the original. Everyone was asking for my copy of it because it was better. Simply terrific app!

- OK scanner

I read a fair number of older medical journal articles that were printed before everything became available electronically, many of which I want to incorporate into my library of journal articles. I purchased TurboScan to take to the library on my phone. It wasn't doing a very good job with flash control and contrast control, etc., and backup to the cloud seemed somewhat limited. I bought Scanner Pro. It takes a much better image from the get go. It has better contrast control. It has more flexible options for interfacing with OneDrive and other storage sites. I have Scanner Pro, TurboScan, Scanable, Office Lens. Scanner Pro is my favorite and the one I use most. I do like Office Lens for its white board ability.

- Love this APP. Did something change in update?

I have used this app to scan and store documents for several years. It works great and is very user friendly too! I recently updated the app on my phone. Today My daughter tried to use it on her phone and her phone says “this app is no-longer shared with you”. We do have family sharing and she doesn’t remember if she bought it individually or got it thru family sharing. So she tried to purchase the app and it won’t allow her to buy it either. Any advice? She now has documents she cannot access.

- Does iOS 11 render this obsolete?

Tucked away in the native Notes app of iOS 11 is a document scanner. As a longtime TurboScan user and promoter, I was interested in doing a comparison of the two. Same document, same lighting conditions, same phone. The TurboScan produced pdf was infinitely superior to the Notes app produced version. It’s not even close. The quality of the TurboScan version is excellent. The iOS produced version was fair, if I’m being kind. Does the native app render TurboScan obsolete? Not in the least. Are you serious about scanning great quality PDFs and images with your phone? If yes, then you need TurboScan.

- My best work partner!

I used this app for so many years already! Especially when I was in graduate school, this APP helped me to be able to facilitate 2 college-level bands as their librarian for over 60 people’s sheet music! I also helped with unexpected emergency crisis (e.g. students forgot or lost their music in school or on the road!), because I can save all the music in my phone! Now, I simply enjoyed using it for day-to-day stuff, like scanning receipts/documents! Still loving it! I highly recommend this scanning app. Look no further, even if you’ve to pay a bit get this app!

- Believe All The 5-Star Reviews

Update 2 - gets better and better. Still best paid app I have. Update-I always use the single pic scan and use this app successfully every week. Addition of volume button for shutter is great! A useful addition would be to have auto straightening of text from a curved page. Thanks TurboScan! This is a fantastic app that I wish I used more. I have used it at the library instead of photocopying since having a PDF is more productive. My only minor gripe is that while the 3-picture scan produces a clear document (I almost never use the single pic option), it is somewhat awkward to have to push the shutter button on the screen 3 times while trying to hold the phone at the same distance and level with the page the whole time. It seems as though one press of the button for all 3 pics would be much more manageable, but it's likely you tested that feature and it wasn't as good.

- Must have! Should be an Award winner!

Now that cell phones have decent cameras, this app is a must have for documents and record keeping. Never lose a receipt or important document again. Store it within TurboScan and/or your photos & store in the cloud. I was at a hotel recently and a very upset fellow guest needed to send a pdf file to a lawyer and the hotel didn’t have a fax machine. I recommended TurboScan, he downloaded the app, took a picture of his document and emailed it in less than 5min. Boy, was he happy! I save all my documents this way. And I recommend you do too!

- My go to app for several years now. Highly recommended!

A business, home, and (now) homeschooling must have. This app is amazing and works exactly as you would want. I was actually shocked by how clear the PDFs are; and that was years ago. I have two home scanners and don’t bother even using them when this is so much faster. This takes a fraction of the time to scan multiple pages into 1 document, rename, date stamp and email. I have referred this app to everyone. So easy to scan in documents on the go and they are crystal clear.

- Awesome app for scanning

I've been using this app for about a 2-3 years for all my scanning purposes. Using my iPhone or iPad as my scanner cuts down on the time it takes me to scan my documents with a regular desktop or printer scanner. So easy to use my 80yr old mom uses it to send me my mail when on vacation Love the option to message and email scanned items directly from the app along with naming them and date stamping them. This app ROCKS!!! I’ve recommended it to several people and now they use it heck even my husband uses it all the time ;)

- The best scanner out there

I’ve had this app for a couple years and it’s awesome, to the point I rarely use the scanner in my office any more. I’ve scanned everything from receipts to large format engineering drawings, and the result is every bit as good as any stationary scanner. The only two drawbacks are 1. The lack of a custom page size option (they finally added 11x17 which was a huge help) and 2. It’s confusing to save a file in Dropbox. It has a good iCloud Drive integration, I wish the same single button was an option for Dropbox.

- Best Out There

For four-plus years, I've tried scanning apps. Lots of them. I always compare each to Turbo Scan, and none are as good. The scans are quick, clear and crisp. Options at all levels are actually helpful (not unnecessary "features" like some scanning apps, which just get in the way). I can create a professional final product that is easily saved and shared/exported. And the developer was lightening-fast with an email response to a question I had. Great scanning app. Turbo Scan has almost completely replaced my desk-top scanner.

- I love TurboScan!

I have been telling everyone that this is the most important tool I use in my day to day assignments ! I’m an emergency response Child abuse investigator ! Often time in the process of documentation I’m presented with documents that are valuable to my disposition and valuable as evidence! I would have to sit there and hand write court orders which were incredibly long but now Turbo scan saves me time and that’s why I love it it’s like having a copy machine in my phone and I get to print my documents and clearly submitt them to court! I just love you product! Thank you J Ocampo M.A.

- Convenient and easy to use

This app is great and is extremely handy for small documents. It can store photos taken by the app or photos in your picture folder on your phone. Since you have to take a photo of each individual page, it isn’t always that great for larger documents like mortgages or other lengthy contracts. It has no problem storing the information, it’s just time consuming to take all the pictures. Update: this app gets better all the time. I’ve had it for years and it. is. awesome.

- Love this app...

I have used this app for several years and can't live without it. I scan docs and receipts on the spot, 1-click upload them in .pdf to Box, and everything is accessible wherever I need it. The app auto-crops your document to cut out the background and lets you choose lightness/darkness levels so you get crisp copies in almost any light conditions. Easy to scan multi-page docs and can 1-click share to email, text, other apps. I've tried out a few scanning apps and this is best I've found.

- It’s really wonderful.

If you can sit on a chair at the foot of steps with the docs on the first step right in front of you, with your elbows on your knees it’s easier to hold the phone steady and line up the page in the image frame. And then if you have mastered the trick of avoiding jittering by touching the “shutter button” instead of pushing it, you (and I, thank you God) can quickly scan well even a 40 piece doc. It is a wonderful and very helpful way to quickly make copies of so many things I almost wonder how I got along without it!

- Extremely useful

I have used Turboscan for years now. It has been a highly reliable and extremely effective tool for almost all my scanning/paper reduction needs. I applaud the developer and highly recommend the app. Paul hi have you scan the results is good enough for most purposes. This little app saves me a lot of time. Granted, for large projects with many pages, the desktop scanner is still my best option. But for scanning projects with only one page or just a few pages, this app is perfect. Well done.

- Easy to use and extremely effective.

I have been using this app for almost eight years and have to say it is extremely efficient as well as easy to use. Produces clear and adjustable images in three different settings. Emailing the scanned documents or sending them to your printer is completed with the touch of a button. Can’t say enough good things about this app. Even the updates that have taken place over the years have just continued to make it even better. Highly recommend.

- Scanning since 2014!!!! - just get it!

I started this review because I scrolled back in all of my standard documents looking for something and realize that I’ve been using the products since June 2014. It is by far the best way I have ever seen for quickly photographing scanning and sending documents any number of ways. A great app does exactly what it supposed to do when it says it’s going to do it. Turboscan does that and more. It corrects camera shake, straightens documents, allows for manual override, and many other things. Just get it!


I have been using this app for years. The first two years I had it, I was still in the US Army. I was able to scan and retain important documents and always have them with me on my phone. This was the biggest lifesaver in the Army. Documents mean a lot no matter what you do in the Military! Now, I can carry my retirement documents with me and continue to scan and save documents from the doctors appointments I have. Fantastic! I have used others but lots of times there are up charges for certain abilities. I am SOOOOOO THANKFUL FOR THIS APP!! Way to go guys!!!

- Needs better scan quality

TurboScan has the best interface and is the best at finding the edges of a document but it still has an issue with dark areas. I reported this a couple years ago and it’s still not resolved. When the app scans a document with a larger dark area such as a logo, large bar graph or pie chart, it fades out the area which looks terrible and is often this unusable. I have to use a different app to scan these types of documents and we shouldn’t have to. If this ever gets fixed, TurboScan will be by far the best scan app but this issue holds it back.

- Great App

I use this app mostly to document field log sheets. At the end of a day in the field, I open up this app on my phone and take pics of multiple pages of hand notes. Then I simply email them to myself. This app sends them to me as a .pdf file instead of a .jpg. This is wonderful because the .pdf files are about 1/20th the size of a .jpg. This way it emails very quickly. It is easy to group many pics together and send them all at once. This app also works will with dropbox which I use a lot.

- I’ve used Turbo Scan for years and I absolutely love it!

This is an amazing tool for any smartphone user. I run a small business that often requires me to scan and email items and before that I used it in business school. It has worked brilliantly every time. I’ve gone from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone XS and this app is nothing short of magical as it stores all your old scans and even names them, usually correctly by reading the text. I could go on and on but trust me on this, this is one of the best tools ever invented.

- Love the app but...

I’ve been using this app for months now and I’m very happy with the updates that have come but the most recent ones have been getting on my nerve. I like to play music while I’m at work and I scan often with my job. I’ll be in the middle of a big document and the app will completely close out and as I click back in it will say that I need to restart my entire phone. When I do that it does nothing. The app will still continue closing out. I hope that this will be fixed. I’m not going to stop my music for this. (It’s the only thing I could think) the app worked before with the music playing. It’s a great app, just needs to be fixed up a little more.

- Only missing one thing

I absolutely love this app and use it all the time as I am a travel nurse practitioner and have a lot of licenses and different documents to keep organized, but the ONE and only thing I believe this app is missing is a way to organize my documents into folders. This app never crashes, it never lags, it’s easy to use and always performs like I expect it to. Allowing me to organize my documents into folders would make it feel less messy and time consuming when I’m scrolling through things I have scanned to recall and use again.

- Easy and user friendly

My son gifted TruboScan to me so I could scan my medical receipts and save to a file. I am able to keep the scanned docs in s file for easy tax time access. I can not tell you how many times this app has been a quick solution for things I don’t readily think of. I’m keeping it! Only wish it had an option to fax directly from the phone as well. Not too many places require faxing anymore except for the government! Unfortunately, I need to fax every once in awhile and it’s a pain.

- Camp Fire

Our home burned in the camp fire in Northern California. With no computer it was difficult keeping up with the paperwork just using my phone. My son told me to get this app because I would be signing many insurance papers. I did and I don’t know what I would have done without it. We purchased a home 1800 miles from our home and this app allowed me to receive sign rescan and return so our home could be purchased with out us being physically present. Thank you so much for a wonderful easy to use application.

- Perfect but one issue

I have used this app for years and it's basically perfect, however, one thing has changed. For some reason when I save the files as a PDF on my computer the reciepts are now saved on the same page instead of separate pages, which forces me to have to go into the PDF and separate them manually. This can take a while. I don't know why Piksoft decided to make this change but there needs to at least be an option where we can choose if we want one recipet per PDF page or several grouped together.

- Great app!

I have been using TurboScan for years and love it. Primarily, I use to take pics of my travel receipts for work so I don't have to tape them to paper. TurboScan let's me put all the receipts in one place and then email to myself. Makes everything so much easier and I don't worry about losing any receipts. I have also used it many times to "scan" a document on the fly. This feature is great as well and the quality is just as good as a scanner. Overall this is a must have app for any business person!

- Amazing Wonder Scanner

This powerhouse of a scanning app is absolutely amazing!! I can scan items then choose to copy them to another scanned doc and place it either top or bottom. I can send copies as PDF or JPEG and it can hold any number of pages and keep going!! I absolutely love what it can do EXCEPT...I wish it would automatically upload up to iCloud without loosing data from one devise to another. Also doesn’t update correctly so I’d like that fixed. Also have capability of faxing without fees like emails

- Awesome but needs cloud options

I’ve used this app for a year or so now and I love it. There’s only one thing that I wish it had that it doesn’t: the ability to save to other cloud providers besides Apple. I pay for cloud space on dropbox, for example, and yet I cannot save my scans there. Instead, I have to save them in the iCloud. This takes up significant space in my iCloud, which I like to use exclusively for backups. Also, why is it that even though I’m using the cloud to save scans, the scans for my iPad and the scans for my iPhone are not in the same place?

- I love it!

I have been using the TurboScan app for a couple of years now. I love its ease of use, the ability to crop pictures easily, the ability to save each scan as a photo or PDF...and more. I like it better than Apple Notes, which now scans, and a couple of others... especially in the cropping function. Most the others are more cumbersome and add time to getting the scan done. I have emptied out my file cabinets using TurboScan so I can save the docs without saving all the paper.

- Excellent!!! Scanner works flawlessly

Love the new auto detect feature. I do have one enhancement request. I would like to make a copy of a bundle to delete existing or add new pages without affecting the existing bundle. I have both Genius and TurboScan. TurboScan is much better in scan quality, detection and speed and I have been using it for almost 3 years now. I definitely like the feature to control the darkness of the scan, the color capability and finally it's integrated with iCloud. Giving it 5 stars.

- Best scan app! I love it! No other scan apps can compare. Great scan quality, easy to use.

I have been using this app for many years. The quality is getting better and better. I use it for personal document scan/filing, work expense report (scan receipt) or any information I see and want to keep. The colored mode is perfect for ID and cards. This is one of my most used apps and it never let me down. Now we have password protection! Great feature I always wanted. Awesome app, best scan app!

- Keeps impressing

I have had this app for years and I always know it’s there yet every time I use it I’m impressed even more. Today I was stuck needing to send an eleven page document to a newly reopened government office. I used my phone from about two feet away but you can read everything. Not only that but when my husband and I went up to meet the in-laws I scanned all the pictures of his late parents that he didn’t have. That came out beautifully. 10 for 10 would by again

- Super great!!

Love this!! Have shared with everyone I know. Worth well more than 2 bucks. It helps me keep track of meeting expenses as well as instant on the spot PDF conversion. Can't believe it took me so long to find out this exists!! Also, I love the functionality-- you can arrange and re-arrange the order, add to or delete from, and even send just one item if ure not ready to send the whole scanned file...I could go on and on...oh!! The only improvement I see this far is better color imaging. Not great for that so far.

- Worth the cost

I was skeptical about how this would work but with 111k reviews it had to be good right? I was pleasantly surprised. This is probably the quickest and easiest scan program I’ve used and it Just works. It’s intuitive to use and it turned probably 2 hours of work into 10 mins. I would have had to hand scan each receipt and upload it to my pc then email. With this program I can do it all in one shot. This helped getting receipts to an insurance adjuster really quick.

- Great app

This app is great! Perfect for those of us trying to become minimalists! It scans well without leaving shadows and the scans are high quality, well worth five bucks! It automatically sends everything to the cloud so no cluttering up your phone. It did glitch at first not wanting to send documents via email but it had a suggested fix of deleting the outgoing email account and re creating it (which took 5 minutes) and that fixed it. Well worth the buy, would buy it again.

- This app works PERFECTLY EVERY TIME!

I this app. It completely delivers on its promises. Take pictures of documents, and relatively quickly have them in PDF form. I always found scanners to be temperamental and finicky, and often did not work, but this app is 100%. It works every time. It's way better than just a picture of a document. It scales and adjusts for the angle of the photo to 'flatten' out the document to make a true, appropriately scaled rendering. And it takes less than a minute. Two big thumbs up!

- Works as advertised

This last update has made this program the workhorse for entering documents into my phone and sending them in mainly PDF format via email. I love the multi page scanning feature. This program is fast, accurate and works exceptionally well for me. It makes my life easier when I’m not near a scanner or copier and often even when I am I just use this instead of the one in the office because it is so much easier. It is truly worth having.

- How did I manage before TurboScan?

I own a business. Every document I frequently reference or share is now scanned and shared with TS. They’re all at my fingertips. I keep all my personal records such as birth certificates, driver’s licenses, credit cards, even images of my vehicle license plates on TS. Again, TS makes it quick and easy to grab these docs and get them to whomever needs them. So much better than just snapping photos. Being able to give an image a title makes it super easy to locate it when I need it.

- The scanner is good but needs to be improved?

Need to enable the ap so that you can quickly collect documents from the emails when you do not have them in a physical way to file them in TurboScan otherwise you have to take photos on the phone send them to waleria of photos cut them because the Does not do it very well and then pick them up with TurboScan and the images are of very poor quality (it's time to take the next step the Apex Capital ap is already doing it )

- Used this for years- the best!

I have use this app for many many years and it is always been on my phone no matter what has happened and nothing has ever disappeared over the years. I use it to scan pages of a book I want to research later, cookbook pages, I use it for my taxes to send PDFs back-and-forth for to my tax guy. I just love that I can turn anything noteworthy into a PDF and email it to myself or to someone else. This is the only app I use for that type of thing.

- Great tool!

I’ve used TurboScan for several years and it is an excellent tool I use daily to scan documents, send them to other people, archive paper files, paid invoices, etc. and to quickly convert handwritten notes into PDFs. The quality is better than the flatbed scanners we no longer use, and TurboScan is faster and can be used anywhere. I don’t recall a single problem with the app, abd the automatic frame and capture feature makes multiple page scans effortless.

- Easy to use and saves so much time!

This app is so helpful to me as a small business owner. I don't want to have to keep a fax machine and a copier and buy ink and all that stuff. With this app, I can easily send documents from my phone. No more trips to the copy store :-) I was a real estate agent for 12 years and used TurboScan extensively. I also was a landlord and used it there. Although I'm no longer working in those areas, I still find Turbo Scan very useful for sending documents easily and clearly.

- App has become very useful

Started as questioning how much I could use this app. I initially just used the app to photograph and store copies of documents and photos. It has become very useful for transmitting documents (like late arriving tax documents) thereby eliminating repeated trips to our accountants. This app is also useful for reorienting diagrams and making them decent looking for public presentations. The images have projected well onto large screens. I am still finding new features that I can use.

- Awesome app!!

I use this so frequently. So easy to scan and send as a pdf or jpg. You can choose different format views from photo to black and white/ color. You can scan in anything and store it in files , upload to your computer, ect... I especially love it for keeping art work that my kids make and sharing with relatives. This is a very easy app to work with. You can also scan in multiple pages as one document. I tell everyone I know to get this app!!

- Scanner on the go!

Best app, hands down, if you need to scan documents and send them to clients all the time, like I do, this is the best app for it. Easy to use & you can be anywhere in the world have a scan with you at all times! Suggestion...delete some of your old scans or save them in a Dropbox if you no longer need them because this will take up a lot of your storage on your phone. But overall this app has change the way I'm able to work. Great App!!

- Good stuff

I have tried/used a number of these types of scanner apps and while this is not perfect, it is the best I have experienced. Pretty easy to use but it could use a little better instruction on functionality. A lot of my using this has been through the "baptism by fire" method. Overall I would absolutely recommend. I use this quite often for work and send material to my boss via this app. That in and of itself speaks to my belief in this product.

- A copier with me all the time.

What did I ever do without it? I have become used to instantly an clearly copying the info my team needs off a white board clearly and sending it to everyone as soon as a meeting ends. The clarity is amazing and so much easier to use than the picture jpg I used to try. The same with signs showing office hours, menus, or with business cards. Pull out the phone and snap, seconds later my team has PDF files in front of them. Seriously cool!
