  • App needs improvement

    By TxCrocodile
    I have owned this app and used it for years. It is nice to be able to scan all my receipts on the road. Recently more and more companies are emailing receipts and I have a need to compile these into a PDF and send them via PDF to our finance group. The problems are two fold. The only way to get the emailed receipt, whether it be a PDF or other type of document, into this app is screenshot it and then laboriously go back into the Scanner Pro app and import them into the app, where manual cropping is required. This contrasts with other scanning apps like Genius Scan which allows you to directly import them into the app itself from a menu that pops up in the actions tab (where you would forward the PDF or other document). Second problem is when the screen capture is imported, the quality is so poor that others cannot read the actual document at all. This is likely a compression problem or, more likely, a result of the Scanner Pro app trying to adjust the resolution/color to one of it’s four pre-determined resolution settings. I have asked Readdle to support the import direct function months ago with no progress shown. Therefore, I am likely making the leap to Genius Scan by Grizzly Labs until they fix these two issues. I do love Readdle apps and would easily assist them in explaining more as I truly believe they have an excellent suite of products. Problem is this is just not usable now for my circumstances.
  • I used to really like this app

    By bobbyleejones
    But my scans are now getting corrupted. A simple scan of a few pages takes an hour because the scan pages get corrupted. Yikes!
  • What happened to Gmail app compatibility?!

    By Gdgarner
    I used to be able to scan something, tap send, and select my gmail app to send it in an email... now the only emailing app that shows as available is the Apple mail app. Why did you guys seemingly remove the gmail app as an option? I don’t use Apple mail and I hate that app. Please bring back the option to use gmail.
  • OCR simply not working

    By bryn.r.owen
    The look and feel of the app is great, but sadly I have never once had anywhere near a clean OCR scan on any document ... There are no controls for character recognition (except language) so there is no way to tweak results. I guess if you have a plain text document it may work, but in practice I have bills, DMV paperwork, receipts, etc. that have small graphics, and varied fonts, and those minor things are enough to throw the OCR waaaay off. The results are comical in many cases with single letters being recognized as multiple letters of vertical text! And there seems to be no predictive algorithm to help the OCR take a reasonable guess at words, so you get some letters correct but not all. I’d love to use this to simplify my life, but it is not ready.
  • Cannot press take picture button

    By Benny Honah
    5S running iOS 9.3.5. Cannot press the take picture button. No response renders the app useless.
  • Great scanner app - one feature request though

    By mattspeer
    This is one of the best scanner apps I’ve used. Very good at detecting edges and auto cropping. I love that I can take scans and fax them but one thing is missing - here’s the feature request- it would be great if the scanner app had a share sheet extension so that I could get documents I didn’t scan into it for faxing. I’d rather have one app than have to download a separate app for faxing.
  • So slow now that the app can’t be used

    By MZ1MZ2MZ3
    I’ve had this app for years and have always loved it. However, within the past couple of months it has gotten so slow that it is nearly unusable. I’m using an iPhone 6s and all of my other apps are working great - no slowdowns or battery issues here. It’s just this app that freezes when taking pictures, cropping, etc. This now happens every single time I use it. iOS updates have not helped either. Please look into this!
  • Confused

    By Tuti1980
    So I am using this app and I sent a fax it says it sent and charged me 1.98 but I have yet to receive any kind of confirmation saying it was sent.
  • Can no longer create PDFs unless I pony up $9.99 for separate app

    By Lgqwerty
    Seems like the app designer took away the ability to create PDFs that it had before. Makes it useless to me. Unless of course I want to be extorted into paying up an additional $9.99 for their separate pdf app
  • Box functionality no longer works

    By Fantastic tool
    Used to work great. Now Box functionality no longer works. When trying to reconnect to Box folder Captcha “I’m not a robot” check box will not work. It just loops, preventing authentication. Searching for a new app.
