This app has saved me so many times by being able to immediately upload and send a document to someone without searching for a scanner, etc. Just genius scan it on your phone and email! I used the free version for quite a while before upgrading and I'm so glad I did because I can now upload documents to a cloud drive and make it PDF and so much more. Highly recommend!

Amazing!  Bird sickness  5 star

I was introduced to Genius Scan by a friend and absolutely love it!!


A marvelous app, but lately . . .  snowysix  5 star

I have used Genius Scan for a few years, trading news articles, comics, and photos with siblings and children across the U.S. It's an unusual app, so easy to use, so flexible, not burdened with "options." Lately I haven't been able to Send scans by email. So I've reduced my use of Genius Scan. This may be due to a recent upgrade to iOS 10: The problem started right after I upgraded. [Updated comment 6/19/17] Now I have no further problems with GeniusScan. I use it at a moment's notice, even for recording a rental car's dashboard readout to prove mileage etc. Mostly I scan news articles for people who don't get or read the newspaper, or who can't get around much. I'm willing to put up with almost always having to "recrop" because I believe there must have been lots of viewers who wanted the full view as the first option. I do not. News articles are usually irregularly shaped because of ads and photos.


Very useful app  mr_jones23  5 star

I had been using Office Lens for much the same purpose, but Genius Scan is so much better. I love the ability to batch together into one PDF. Takes very sharp looking scans. Highly recommend.
