  • Intelligent and Intuitive Scanning App!

    By Jord77777
    This Adobe scanning app used to be very good. Recent updates have definitely elevated it to great! The main highlights at least how I have used it or that you just tap on the screen when your document is in view and the app along with what I presume is augmented reality technology using my iPhone 11 Pro Max cameras setup, automatically adjusts the the size of the scanning area to the corners of the document or paper you are scanning. In other words, it detects the size of the paper no matter how close your camera is to it, and crops out the document automatically, all with just one tap of the screen! I would guess this works on all iPhones too, as I had a 7 plus that I tested the app on; also did a pretty good job automatically detecting the document size. The ability to detect text is definitely a bonus, and it’s been pretty accurate for me but since I mainly use this application for scanning sheet music charts, I don’t often use text detection. Great for scanning receipts or forms though too, whenever I may need to use that feature, say, instead of having to 1: print out a form, 2: fill it out with pen, 3: scan it to a computer, 4: FAX it to another place or person. Instead of all those steps, I just tap my phone screen, it scans, and then I’m free to just email the scan! Amazing, the recent updates made it even quicker and actually a lot of fun to use, and very useful and intuitive for all types of uses. Thanks! Hope this makes sense and helps someone!
  • Good quality

  • Works well, but no flexibility on where you can save files

    By Nickian
    This app does what it says and works fine, but the fact that you can choose to store files locally, sync them to iCloud, or anywhere else other than Adobe's cloud is a deal breaker. Let users have control of their own data, Adobe. Scanner Pro by Readdle is a superior app with much more flexibility.

  • Awesome App

    By fresh darko
    What is there not to love!?
  • Difficult to transfer files

    By Fshurvbkgde
    This app scans quickly and with high quality of the final file. Too many steps to store the file where you want it. It seems to require the user to email the file even when storing to a file location such as Dropbox. What good is scanning a file if it is difficult to store it? It seems maybe Adobe intends users to store files in the app (Adobe cloud) this is not at all practical. Users have their own places they store and organize files and will want to store files there with other related ones not in Adobe cloud.

    Exellent app for iphone and ipad
  • The best

    By Enough to know better
    This is the best scanning app out there. It will auto scan each page for you but you can still edit each corner of the page manually. And because the brilliant when you pick a corner to edit it zooms into that corner in a little bubble outside of where your son is so that you can actually see what it is you’re doing. You can edit each page by caller you can erase certain portions of it you can draw on the pages you can email a link of the PDF to someone you can email an actual PDF to someone. You can export the PDF as JPEG files. There’s nothing that this app can’t do. You can re-order the pages if you scanned them in the wrong order. You can come back to the same file later and add pages and edited at any time. If there’s a better app out there then I have not seen it because I don’t think it exists. I am a teacher and this has saved me countless hours.
  • So easy! Can scan a whole document!

    Works with ease.
  • Scan

    By Atuneforu1
    Adobe help with finding them documents you can never seem to find. I just wish the service was not the typical $9.99 a month. This would be #3 $9.99 subscription. I still have to pay for the WIFI and the phone when in play. Adobe you are great.

    By Bell_cupcake💕
    Now I don’t say this lightly, but Adobe Scan BLEW MY SOCKS OFF. I had to scan some shot records for college and was having some trouble w/ the computer’s scans but I tried the app per my brother’s suggestion and was genuinely surprised at how little time and effort it took to get a great scan compared to the computer. The black was literally darker and crisper than the computer one. How they managed to fit this sorcery in an app will forever elude me.

    Best app possible 😍I loved it
  • Cumbersome

    By Mike-3.14195
    I generally scan with a commercial copier/scanner in an office, but needed to work at home scan a doc for a refi. I use Adobe Pro, and like the software, so I decided to try Adobe scanner. It worked okay in terms of producing a scan image, still had minor issues with finding edges of my docs, but completely acceptable for a mobile app. Then the images are stored on the Adobe server, and I had to log back in with two step secure log in, and then convert the web images to local docs that I can attach and forward. Lots of messing around. I then decided to try Microsoft lens once my task was complete, downloaded the app, took the images, easy to use trim tool, and got a local document in 30 sec. Done! So, this is in no way as exhaustive comparison, but I found the Microsoft lens to be an easier to app.
  • Use of Adobe

    By Ellie-May77
    I have only been able to use Adobe for a few days but I have found it to be extremely useful and I love how fast it helps me with information about a photo when I only have to ask Adobe to give me the information about that photo. I can tell when I get more familiar with using Adobe it will benefit me more and more. Thank you! Kristy Keller I really don’t know how to use the Adobe to my advantage. I’m afraid of loosing valuable information. Like making sure I am able to get organized and remember where i put it. I need to Adobe scan my passport, drivers license, social security, Birth certificate, Notary, voters registration, concealed weapons permit, organ donation, power of attorney and keep them in an organized way. That’s because I’m not good with being a secretary. I know this is going to make my life so much easer when I get it. My health records and dated how awesome. Thanks Kristy Keller
  • Makes pdf conversion easy

    By jessdn777
    This app makes making anything a pdf easy. Almost easier than having an actual scanner.
  • Happy User

    By Kat_1016
    I couldn’t be happier with this app. Usually, I’m worried about downloading apps because of the ratings but, so far I can’t complain. It’s quick, easy, and can’t tell the difference if I would of used an actual scanner.
  • Awesome, awesome, awesome!

    By Jtbiznessman
    When looking for a solution to printing documents from photos that I’ve received on my mobile phone, this app does the job masterfully! Love it!
  • B+ Scan Program

    By Johnf222444444444
    Good program. If you are using a tablet or phone to take picture of a document you can get it to be very clear and readable if you practice. Also, it takes practice so that you don’t cut off top of a page if you are copying things like insurance documents.
  • Love it

    By RealDeal_48
    I have been using this app for a couple years. I upgraded 3 months ago and I am glad I did. Very useful and user friendly. Recommend this to anyone one a business or personal use for multiple reasons.
