I am one of your users and I am using Scanner pro on my iPhone. I have some suggestions and questions. 1. When I finish my scanning and I want to send the file to others directly using my iPhone, I cannot find the option "using the Airdrop" which I think is the most convenient way connected iPhones. This is question #1. 2. As a new comer to this app, I sometimes deleted files by mistake. Although the app can upload files onto the cloud storage, I still think there should be a place where we can find the files we've already deleted just like other products of yours, like PDF Expert. This can be really helpful especially when I have some important files. 3. The uploading works in a strange way sometimes that I can't understand. I always find the folders missing in my Onedrive and iCloud drive, and the files that supposed to be in those missing folders turns out to be in the primary folder. It's easy for me to delete some file in this way. 4. Still the problem of uploading. I think it better to let the files on my iPhone completely conform to ones on the Cloud disk. Sometimes I may scan one file several times to get the best one, and those files are all uploaded on to my iCloud so that I can't tell which one is the best when I open my iCloud. So the best way is that when I delete some files from my phone, they will also be deleted from my Cloud storage at the same time. I'll appreciate it if you can improve some of the problems in the next version.
I have owned this app for years and generally switched between it and Scanbot to get the best scans. I just used it again for the first time in a few months today to scan a multi-page document and I am blown away. Under fairly poor lighting conditions (at nighttime under a yellow lamp) Scanner Pro gave me a perfect OCR scan of my document. Both pages were perfectly aligned, the edges of the pages were perfectly clean, the angle looked perfect, the crease in the paper was gone, and the pages looked perfectly white even though I took the scan under yellow tinted lighting. I tested the scan’s OCR by searching a few random words (in PDF Expert) and it worked perfectly. Wow - I don’t know what secret sauce Readdle has been infusing into this app lately but it’s miles ahead of where it used to be, even though it’s always been one of the top quality scanning apps in the App Store. Bravo, Readdle! Keep it up! PDF Expert and Documents have been invaluable apps to me; I hope Readdle keeps pushing forward.
I used to use this app all the time to scan my important documents so that I can have them on all my devices wherever I go...Until I started having trouble accessing my documents when I needed them most. If my signal is weak then I usually can’t access all of my documents because they’re all in the cloud and not actually on my devices. Or if I can access them it takes forever to populate in the app. Just recently I had to retrieve a very important document but my signal was weak so I couldn’t retrieve it at the moment I needed it. It was very frustrating. This has happened to me several times and it’s come to the point where I just stopped using this app for scanning and I started using the Apple Notes app which has made it much easier to access what I need when I need it. And also even if I do have a decent signal it takes so very long to load up all my documents. It’s possible I just have so many documents in the app but that’s because I used it and relied on it so much until now. I really like how I can fax documents straight from this app but until these problems get fixed I’m just going to have to go elsewhere..
I bought Scanner Pro three years ago and it continues to be the most useful and convenient app I own. Being on-the-go and not always having the time or access to a scanner, this app makes it easy to scan documents in color or B&W for future reference or use. The technology is accurate in capturing the image you want or you can manually adjust borders to get more or less of the document you need. Even if distorted or taken from an angle, the app will automatically adjust the image, so words and borders are straight and clear. You can email, add to, delete or retake scans. I use it all the time. I’ve only used the fax feature once and there is a small fee to pay, but it was money well spent when I needed to emergently send documents for clinicals. I highly recommend this app. My only request from developers would be to look into being able to attach scanned documents to already existing e-mail drafts.
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was because the OCR needs improvement on things like receipts. I tried to scan my receipts to put into a database that can parse all of the data to the proper categories, but most receipt quality is not great. So I did some experiments to see if it was only the quality of the receipt text, because I realized that if it was totally unrecognizable it would be impossible for any OCR. So I first did a scan of the whole receipt, with yielded many mistakes. So then I used the iPhone photo app to edit the same image many times, each time cropping off areas, leaving only the text that the OCR made mistakes on. This effectively zoomed in on the text, and each time the OCR had an easier time recognizing the text. I did this multiple times, zooming in on every area of the receipts, until it had recognized the entire receipt. So, since it is obviously possible the scanner app could do something similar and end up recognizing the whole receipts
