Customer Reviews

  • Absolute Best!!

    by 4ZTYM

    Genius scan far exceeds all my expectations. I take a picture of documents, drivers license, credit cards, receipts or anything and if it doesn't turn out it'll let me know and tell me to take it again. It it saves me so much time and expense. I can send documents and save them for reference. The only app of it's kind. The makers are truly genius.

  • Great App!

    by Tarryn3

    I encourage all of my online students who do not have a scanner to use this app. It allows you to save as several documents as 1 PDF file. Awesome!

  • Great scanning app

    by 166052138

    By far the best scanning app I've used. Very easy to use. Scans come out great and there's a variety of different exporting options. Highly recommended

  • Love this app!

    by You're Great

    Amazing! It does just what I want it to- takes a pic, let's me crop into whatever shape I want, let's me save as a doc then email to myself! And it's SO EASY.

  • Fair quality

    by Benabo

    Was not able to get the documents to come out clear enough to make out numbers. Used the iPad 2 so a better camera would make a big difference. However, the user ability of the app was very easy and loved the directness of taking the picture straight to edited document.

  • Makes the phone crash.

    by Awsguy

    It used to work very well on my iPhone 5. Since the latest update, it will "convince" my phone that its battery has run down. The phone turns itself off. I plug it in, it says I have plenty of charge --- so far it's happened when the charge indicator read 38, 59, and 90%.

  • I absolutely love this app!

    by OsgoodKelch

    I just got done scanning my electric bill while it was sitting in my lap to email it. Image was saved to PDF and it was clear and totally readable. I have come back to this app dozens of times in the last two years. Scans those cheesy little receipts we get into full size documents. Love it.

  • very useful

    by Robot-lover

    very easy - use it for all my scanning needs and never have problems. I also use it to save and catalogue important receipts right after I make a purchase. I haven't lost or forgotten a receipt since using this!

  • Simple and great

    by Adoola

    Apple should pay millions for this app and own it. App of the year every year!!!!

  • Great app

    by Richdog1

    This app helps me out everyday. Love it!

  • Job. Done.

    by Erik Hart

    Great app to send your physical documents anywhere you'd like via email, etc.

  • Awesome!

    by jedi916

    I was impressed on how easy this is to use! Also the post processing is pretty good at getting your docs looking the way they should. Highly recommended!

  • Great App

    by Annie8581

    Love it. I have never had a fax machine or scanner and now I don't need either one. I use it at least once a week.

  • Very Useful

    by Lost Al

    Really helps me move paperwork back & forth while being on the road..thx

  • Super useful, even greater update

    by Sillyvalley

    This is the most used cam app other than the camera itself! Does a great job cleaning up and de-skewing. So good I grow too lazy to even turn on my flatbed. It even does multi-pages. Love the in-PDF editing function - you can even move from one PDF to another. Updates - how do you make something great even better, I don't know. But these geniuses obviously know. Can I add one more star? The new interface is more intuitive. Also like the latest addition of tags. Integration with iBooks, WiFi sharing, Facebook sharing. Magnifying glass? Oh my!

  • Best

    by Acid1372

    Best!!

  • Terrible Scanner Pro is easier

    by O2bkpt

    There are too many steps to download and not user friendly. Navigating through this interface is a beast, hate it. I left this and went to Scanner Pro which is very easy to navigate and interact with.

  • Genius!

    by Moni34mon

    I am amazed. Here is an app that actually works like I want it to. Very fast, very helpful, very easy. Right on!

  • Good app

    by DasMac

    Easy on the go scanning. Very useful for scanning docs without the headaches of your multifunction printer/scanner.

  • Very, very useful app

    by Gep89149

    Wow this app makes my life so much easier! Easy to use and good quality!

  • Genius Scan

    by Kpasov

    This is the greatest thing since digital cameras I can take a picture of any document and send it as a PDF file, I really like this app.

  • Good app

    by Napre

    I like it

  • Really useful

    by Slevitoo

    This app lets you use your phone to scan documents and save or e-mail them as PDF files. You can edit down to just a part of the scan or cut out the background easily. Great for on the go copying and came in very handy after a move before my computer and scanner were connected.

  • This is awesome

    by jeremy Weaver

    Who the hell has a scanner these days? I don't. Now I don't need one. I took the picture and emailed it as a PDF. Now I'm done so quickly, I have time for a review. Thanks for the ease of use Genius Scan.

  • It's the right one

    by Belle Thane

    The developer choose the right name for the app " Genius " I found it very good and useful.

  • Great for small business

    by Hottbone

    I can keep track of all of my checks and receipts! It's a easy to use and I don't need a desktop scanner anymore. Great money saver. Can scan anywhere in an instant. Uploads direct to google drive, emails, Dropbox, etc. Highly recommended.

  • It takes a picture and nothing else

    by 013864735194

    All this app does is take a picture.

  • Genius Scan

    by WAWMD27

    Excellent app. Very useful and flexible It is the app for scanning for my purposes. Better than some I have paid for when I looked at what was available Last year

  • Great app

    by Todd4198

    Very easy to use and fairly quick app. Adding multiple pages to a single PDF is a huge benefit. Contrast can be a bit high on the black and white enhancement- an adjustment would be nice.

  • Love this app!!!!!

    by STEVENIZER103

    I love this app. You can take a picture of your paper and then open it up in your apps. Really helpful for the OnSong app. It doesn't take the best picture but I definitely recommend it to everyone.

  • Great app!

    by oso8e8a

    One of my most used apps. Great for scanning receipts, making PDF scans of documents on the go, & super easy integration with other apps.

  • Must have App

    by #Ashu

    This is a wonderful App, I am using it since 6 month without any issue. It's very handy and must have app.

  • Use it lots, but have two issues

    by Tamarinera

    Great simple UI. But... (1) quality of images isn't ad good as Documents by Savy Soda. B&W enhancement alters quality so it gets cruddy, even if more contrast. Color or no enhance are a bit dark...if you can improve that, it'd rock. (2) I only can send one scan at a time to email...am I missing something? It's slow sending multiple emails for a cluster of scans. What's great: the ability to add pages to an existing doc- awesome.

  • Excellent!

    by badchickenbro

    Highly recommended! The interface is clean and easy to navigate. The scans are great quality. I can't tell you how many times I've used it for scanning and emailing documents for work.

  • One of the most useful apps I have ever downloaded

    by RTAF658JI

    Fantastic scanning quality and PDF organization options.

  • Awesome App!

    by Fesghool

    by Gib46

    With five star service.

  • Excellent. Eliminates a scanner for expense reports

    by MitchMack

    Easy to use although I don't use it often enough to really use it well. I'd like to know how to scan to a single document. Still very good to use to scan individual receipts.

  • Simple, effective, perfect

    by jarnold30

    Easy to use, straight forward, does what it says it will. Makes scanning documents a breeze.

  • Awesome

    by Tomrobey

    Really great app. Very useful!

  • Good app BUT....

    by salsamson

    I wish it would list my most recent documents at the top of the page. Other than that, it's pretty good. I use it often & it's very functional.

  • I liked it until I update it.

    by rii's mommy

    I can't seem to keep it open for me to crop anything. please help!!

  • Fantastic

    by RaptorXrX

    GeniusScan is simply a fantastic app. I use it nearly every day to scan different types of documents into my phone, and it is very easy to export the scanned document into my computer.

  • Super useful, even greater update

  • Makes scanning a snap!

    by Jthiller1

    Great way to send multipage docs to other people - and they can't even tell I used my phone!

  • Great app; one improvement suggestion

    by FreddieWilson

    This is a great app. Very worth the money. One suggestion for the developers: include OneNote integration.

  • Very good

    by Prieandre

    I like it

  • Wow, it IS really great !!

    by BebeGunn13

    Worked perfect. Scan looked great. Easy to use. I was impressed. Highly recommend!

  • Fantastic one

    by Baline14

    I want to replace the name to perfect scan instead of genius scan.

  • Problem solved

    by Dapazta

    My flatbed scanner would not work and I had an emergency transmission to make. Out of desperation I looked for an app that would work from my iPad,and found genius scan. It worked perfectly, better than I had hoped, and saved me a ton of trouble. I highly recommend this app!

  • Fabuloso!

    by Susanita 1

    Uso este App todo el tiempo. Es muy fácil de usar. Tengo menos papeles en mis archivos.

  • President

    by MarikaSy

    Very cool app that consistently works as described. It makes my job and personal life a lot easier! I have recommended to many and they have not disappointed.

  • Superb!

    by Shah America

    I had this for a while, but just start really using it. This is wonderful for supplementing notes.

  • Genius scan is awesome

    by CallmeWard

    I use this often to keep useful docs at my fingertips. It is great!

  • Groovy!

    by Telar1

    Scan several pages of fine type with a phone camera? Email it to whoever and expect them to be able to read it? No way. Way! You can zoom in tight, too. There are so many marginal apps out there, but this one is the real thing.

  • Fabulous

    by Rrianga

    It's not about the scan feature only, it let me convert what I scan as a PDF .

  • Can it really be this good?

    by Apersonwhoplaystapzoo

    I read the reviews and I agree with all the good ones. HIGHLY recommend.

  • Very useful tool

    by Mdgwind

    I am surprised how often I use this program for anything I need to scan, from recipes, to documents. It works rather well.

  • Works great Easy Too!

    by Rotrhed

    I used this app many times as I am required to send PDF copies of fuel purchases on a daily basis. I send them PDF to my boss on the same day I get them. It is awesome thank you Genius Scan!

  • A Lifesaver!

    by J. J. Q. W.

    I use this app every single week for expense reports. I take a pic of receipts as soon as I get one & don't have to worry about gathering them all together when it's time to do my report. I add a title & a tag & know just where to find my docs. It is incredibly convenient & truly an excellent app!!

  • So useful

    by Egjundis

    I don't even bother with our desktop scanner. This is quicker and easier; I love the choices to save as a jpeg, pdf in various sizes (small, medium, large) and the many ways you can export (dropbox, ibooks, email, etc.). Thank you for making such a wonderful app!

  • Well done

    by Mr. Senator

    Easy and efficient.

  • GREAT APP!!!

    by Magnum Properties

    Love it! It comes in handy all the time w/my business on the go.
