TurboScan turns your iPhone into a multipage scanner for documents, receipts, notes, whiteboards, and other text. With TurboScan, you can quickly scan your documents and store or email them as multipage PDF or JPEG files.

#1 business app in the United States and 30+ other countries for 2 years!

• "Unbelievably sharp. The best app I’ve tried... The scan accuracy of SureScan mode is brilliant" (AppBank review, April 2010)
• "I’ve downloaded and purchased many fantastic apps, but Turboscan is the tool that has added the most value to my iPhone" (iosLawyer.com, Dec 2012)
• "Produces not a photograph of a document, but a very clear copier quality image, Having this app is like having a portable copier in your pocket" (TurboScan user)

TurboScan uses advanced fast algorithms to auto-detect document edges, straighten the documents (correct perspective), eliminate shadows and set a perfect contrast.

TurboScan boasts a powerful yet easy to use interface. Get instant one-tap brightness, rotation and color controls all on one screen!

TurboScan also offers SureScan, our proprietary scanning mode for sharper scans (especially useful in low-light conditions.) SureScan requires taking three pictures of the same document with the iPhone camera.

TurboScan's handy "Email to myself" feature lets you send documents to a predefined address, or even upload them to online storage sites like Evernote, with a single tap.

All processing happens on your iPhone, and the confidentiality of your data is never compromised (no Internet connection needed.)

• Automatic document edge detection and perspective correction
• Ultra-fast processing (under 4 seconds per page)
• SureScan mode for very sharp scans
• Document naming, storage inside the app and search
• Multipage editing: add, reorder, and delete pages
• Copy pages to Clipboard and Paste
• “Email to myself” feature for quick emails
• Email document as PDF, JPEG or PNG, or save to camera roll
• Arrange multiple receipts or business cards on a PDF page
• Open PDFs or JPEGs in other apps like the free Dropbox app (or Evernote, SkyDrive, GoogleDrive app, etc) to send to clouds, or fax apps
• Printing via AirPrint
• Instant one-tap brightness, rotation, and color controls
• Compact attachments with adjustable size

• Not recommended to use with iPod Touch 4 or iPad 2 camera (due to its low resolution).
• Works great with the iPod Touch 5 and is compatible with the iPad 3 or newer.

• Make sure your document is flat and well lit.
• Use flash in low light conditions, but avoid glare with glossy documents (magazines, etc.)

We're constantly improving TurboScan, and we value our customers' opinions and feedback.

    When a Newbie asks what apps to get, this is the first one I show them. It is excellent! It's also incredible with white boards at the office to distribute meeting notes.

  • Awesomely useful!

    by Zeph.D

    Very easy to use. Best thing ever in getting rid of paper clutter. The most portable, most efficient, and organized way of filing... Take pictures of the docs or receipts or what have you and safe as PDF to designated i-folder or email them or fax. It's like having my steel cabinet of files with me everywhere, all the time.

  • My Go-To Scanning App

    by cox.516

    A scanning app that does exactly what it is supposed to do. It has adjustable quality, so adjustable file size. The auto frame feature, while not 100% accurate is reliable & easily adjustable if it's not framing what you wanted or included too much. You can email straight from the app as a PDF.

  • No more scanning or faxing ever again!

    by Beast!!!!!!!!

  • TurboScan 2.6.2

    by TurboGlass

    Out of all purchased apps (129) I use this the most. I always recommend this to others if smart phone apps come up in conversation. As a testament of its ease of use... I had been told of it by a friend and downloaded it. I mentioned TurboScan to another friend - Before I had a chance to play with it. Fearless techie that I am... I offered to demonstrate the program to them - and it worked flawlessly! I Love this app! I told a psychologist who was describing the difficulty she had making copies of her patient interaction notes at Assisted Living facilities about TurboScan. She Loves it now too! Read no more. Buy it and start using it. You won't regret it.

  • TurboScan

    by javiles007

    TurboScan is one of my used Apps! As a consultant I do quite of bit talking and illustrating through draws. TurboScan allows me to record the drawings and send them to the client immediately! The options of black&white and color is tremendous, and you can choose which mode is best so that the smallest detail is captured. I highly recommend TurboScan!

  • Works great

    by AdRock2013

    I like this app because it is simple and it does exactly what I need it to do. I don't need to be tied to a giant fax/copy/xerox machine just to send paper documents. I can be in my car and send stuff as attachments in emails to where I need it to go. I also like the frame function that shows you the close up portion that is covered by your finger when you are framing a document. That part is very helpful.

  • Awesome

    by ScottM123456

    This app saves me time by creating PDFs of images. Works perfectly!

  • Not bad, worth trying!

    by Aarochy_

    It's not bad, worth trying, compared with those same type apps, it's better

  • Turbo scan

    by AKPoet

    I love it. I use the three photo scan on most things and get very good scans! I've scanned photos in relative's albums and, while there's nothing like a high quality scanner -- they are very good and with a little tweaking in one of my favorite editing apps -- most people can't tell the difference. It's definitely one of my go to apps!

  • Great app, makes life easy.

    by Kinglos99

    This app is easy to use, I like it cause there are diff. Tools to fix your scanned doc. best app I have bought so far.

  • This app is a very useful took to have on your phone.

  • Great APP

    by Treerock1234

    Works flawlessly on my 4S with 7.0.4. Been using it for 18 months.

  • Good product

    by DeeringC

    I use this app all the time. Easy way to turn a document into a PDF on your phone. Use it for capturing travel receipts to training certificates. Only problem I have had was me keeping to many documents on my phone and crashing the app. Have to empty the ol' memory banks from time to time. No complaints or problems that are not related to user error!! Good product. Thanks guys!

  • I love this app!!!

    by ajazzandblueslover

    Out in the world, I read something interesting and want to acquire it. I just quickly scan it using the triple pictures method and straighten it with the app's tool; it takes about 2 minutes. If I send it to my email I can save it to a file on my computer. Presto! I also use it for important documents to cut down on paper files. I've scanned hard-to-see embossed information on appliances, and other odd bits of writing. It's great for business; I haven't needed a fax since I got Turboscan. A great addition to my Auxiliary Brain.

  • Works flawlessly

    by DiviningSage

    Best mobile scanner ever!

  • Works Great!

    by Ken223

    Does things my desktop scanner can't. Glad I purchased it

  • Love this App!

    by Eric@83

    I absolutely love this app. It's perfect for the outside salesperson that lives on the road and doesn't always have access to a fax machine or scanner. I use to send lost invoices, sales flyers, or even pictures. Worth the purchase!

  • Bubba

    by Bbbbubba

    I am a superintendent in the construction world, and this program works great to be able to scan documents out in the field and email them to my office in a PDF format! I love everything about this app.

  • It works great for tax season and much more

    by pearljelly

    Good app

  • This is the best app I have.

    by Tristanda

    This is the best app I have.

  • My most-used utility

    by Michael Lorenz

    I usually just cancel out of a pop-up that asks me to review the app, but this is such a useful app that I have to give it a good review. It's simple to use and does what it claims. Well. I almost never use a scanner, anymore. I use for receipts, important mail that gets buried in the stack in the kitchen, drawings and notes for the classes I teach. I agree the button to cycle through B&W, color is not the most clear. One thing I'd like to see (but may have overlooked) is a simple way to create a few folders to organize scans. Even without, this is a bargain at a couple dollars.

  • Use it for my business all the time

    by Willy t bird

    It is so easy to use that my 60 yr old dad uses it for our construction business. I love it and my business appreciates it.

  • Meetings on the go tool

    by Gabie J Gonzalez Lorenzo
