    I got much more woke! today when I realized this feature would solve so many problems I’ve been ignorant of in the past. Had no idea all the neat things I can accomplish using Adobe Scan! Mainly since I’d really never noticed before. It’s magic for tidying up my scans, and signing my signature. I’d heard it was available but didn’t realize it’s been there for me all along. So simple even I can use it perfectly. My boss will be surprised as well. Thanks Adobe💜

    I looooooooove this app. So practical and useful !!
  • Privacy concerns

    By notknwn_
    The app requires account registration for use. One must provide their name, birthday, and email before being allowed past the first splash screen. How about a DNA sample as well, Adobe? Not cool. Thank goodness for iOS 13’s new “Sign in with Apple” feature.
  • Ridiculous licensing practice

    By Robdogz
    If I use the free version that anyone can register for, I can scan and SAVE my documents to Creative Cloud. Makes sense, no problem. Except, my school PC has an enterprise license on it which includes all of the desktop apps you can possibly imagine BUT with a restricted use of creative cloud for mobile platforms. This means that when I log in to Adobe Scan on my iPhone using my work login... I CANNOT SAVE any of the documents. In other words, by paying a boat load of money for my license, I have fewer abilities than a user that has paid nothing. That’s really bad.
