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.

Nice scanner plus record keeper.  karamj  5 star

I have all my documents scanned, edited and nicely kept. Easy to retrieve.


Does it's job  jhaehnel  5 star



Super useful;  no-nickname-yet  5 star

Love this app; use it more and more. Worth paying for to upload to Dropbox auto-magically. (You could always do so manually, even in the free version.) Auto-cropping of documents could be improved. Probably half the time it fails to find the document and I have to do the crop manually (and this is with me making very sure to have a contrasting background). Hope they improve it. You can't send feedback unless you have Apple Mail configured. We GMail users are disadvantaged. I wouldn't care but this is how they collect sample scans to improve e.g., auto-cropping.

Reviewed After Use

Customer for 7+ years  Reviewed After Use  5 star

World class application!! The Developer listens, iterates and each version WITHOUT Fail is a successful productive solution that benefits the user immediately!! If you dont have it get it! If you dont know what it is get! If you dont need it, well think about it again, you could be wrong. Once you use the solutions are endless. Just use it and the intuitive nature will exude from your mind to this app. It makes life easier at all levels. Scanning and categorizing cant be done better until the technology has a paradigm shift.
