Genius Scan+ - PDF Scanner Reviews


Still the best  rvinny  5 star

Must have for any road warrior. Still better than the one from those Elephant guys. Works perfect. Would love to see some sort of auto cloud synch or backup. I have lost receipts many times when moving to a new phone or iOS upgrade.


Lifesaver  Theswampfox.  5 star

Been using this app for a few years. Has saved me a ton of headache.


Amazing free program, but worth $8 to go pro and print / extra features  Statuskwo  5 star

Maybe I’m a tech dinosaur, but $8 to be able to successfully print PDF documents in good quality from my iPhone is blowing my mind. I love this program already for mobile scanning but the extra features with pro are so worth it. Amazing program. Thanks guys.


Very dependable app that just gets smarter and smarter...I love it.  BigPoppaTuesday1492  5 star

I love this app. It is one of the few that stands out as golden, a must-have for me. It is a huge time-saver. The quality of the PDFs is such that I don't even have to crank up my scanner for most purposes. I just take a picture or import an image from photos, let the mostly automatic features clean it up for me, move pages around if I want, and then hit send and done. There are additional features I haven't dug into but every feature I have used works flawlessly, updates are seamless and have consistently made the app more intuitive while keeping to the original sense of workflow so you don't have a new learning curve with every update. And I have had it for years and they've never had me pay for an update. I've never had a complaint about it as either a user or from clients and others receiving the scans, yet I am always pleasantly surprised how the upgrades continue to improve and streamline the experience. I am going out of my way here to give clear kudos because this is one of those rare apps that actually delivers what it promises and this development team deserves deep praise. Thank you for the time you've saved me.


Convenient!  Tvogl15  5 star

Best scanning app ever  Bond. Chesty Bond.  5 star

Whenever I need to save a document or scan and send in the run, I turn to Genius Scan. It is what it's name says it is...genius! So easy to use, easy to bundle multiple pages into one document, easy to scan, save and send. I highly recommend Genius Scan for the quality of the documents produced as well as its ease of use.

This app is falling behind in functionality compared to other options.


The best scanning App!  Loops242  5 star

I've tried other scanning Apps but Genius Scan is the one which I've retained because it works so well. It's particularly good in its latest version. Thank you Grizzly Labs!


Just Right - my most used app  J3R3MYDOTCOM  5 star

This is a great really useful app from people who care, listen and improve - appropriately Unlike some iOS apps suffering from bloat - this app gets better and better, without getting harder to understand and use - a rare quality Speaking if quality - the images are excellent, the speed of capturing, saving, naming & sharing multiple pages, flip charts, whiteboards and receipts is very good There's still some UI tweaking to go, but already five stars for me. Highly recommended


Fantastic for archiving to OneDrive  hh44mm00  5 star

I use this to scan and upload straight into OneDrive. Is a great product and I recommend it to my friends regularly.

Chris Long 903

It's like a scanner in your pocket!  Chris Long 903  5 star

I use Genius Scan+ a lot. Whenever I need to scan and send any document. The Batch scan which does multiple pages into a single document works extremely well.


Fantastic app. 4yrs down. No regrets of purchase!  sri420  5 star

Really good application.


Great Value  fakingthedream  5 star

Reliable, easy


Best App for the money  GrimReaperNJ  5 star

Great product  Lbelliveau  5 star

Useful and easy to use. Perfect for managing expense receipts and reports.


Enough said!  somohsin  5 star

One if the best apps out there. Worth every penny.


Unable to find files.  Billi  1 star

Looking for important documents that I had saved, I get the message on genius scan, that it wasn't saved. Why? I had saved it to an "Older" version of "Genius" scan.


Thumbs Up  Props7  5 star

Works great


Very handy  Passwordfun123  4 star

I use this for loads of paperwork. I like the option to send a document with password protection. Assembling documents is easy and the quality is very good, though sometimes an image only goes through as a thunbnail rather than full-size. Not sure why that happens. I tried the companion Fax app, but I found that to be unreliable, so I choose to use GeniusScan exclusively.


HANDY!  Hopefulie  5 star

For papers I need and don't want to travel with this is a great app. Easy to use and prints out perfectly.

Dr Cavanaugh

Excellent and keeps getting better  Dr Cavanaugh  5 star

So easy to use that I actually USE it! The batch feature is a very helpful addition so I can scan multi page documents without having to press anything
