We added the VoiceOver feature and FineScanner AI can now be operated by visually impaired users!
With this feature, you can have a phone screen read, including buttons, icons, links, and other interface elements, and use gestures to navigate and select their options.
To enable this feature go to the Accessibility tab and choose VoiceOver.
The most important in previous releases:
Automate scan management with new Siri commands:
- Get PDF
- Get Recognized Document.
Create Siri Commands for these actions to use your voice for opening PDF or recognized documents. Extend the flow of actions with, for example, emailing or sharing the files.
Siri will remember what you often do in FineScanner and will prompt you to perform these actions with a single click. Siri Suggestions can be found by clicking on the Spotlight search bar, or they may also appear on your lock screen if Siri thinks you are about to perform related action. Siri can offer you three FineScanner actions:
As before, you can add Siri shortcuts to your favorite scans inside FineScanner. For example, to open a passport scan using the Siri, go to the properties of that scan, select Siri command, and create the ''Open my 'passport' command. Now, if you tell Siri to: ''Open my passport'', the scan will appear on the phone screen.

Ratings and Reviews
Just works and is my go-to scanner
I got this app some time ago, but hadn't used it for a while, thinking I would at some point use it again.
Well, I can tell you for sure, this app just works as it's intended, and is simple and straightforward to use.
Do some of the features cost a bit? Yeah. However, they are QUITE useful.
If you are like me and have a BUNCH of things to get digitized, use this app. You won't be disappointed.
Update - 2 Nov 2016
I bought a new iPhone 7 Plus a couple of days ago, and with the dual 12 MP cameras, this app is even more invaluable.
Update - 16 Jul 2018
I’ve used this for a number of years now, and it’s still my go-to scanner / digitizer.
As of this review update, I’ve scanned / digitized 603 items that I can find.
The prices for each feature weren’t terribly expensive.
Simply put, this is THE best iOS scanner I’ve used.
However, I’ve switched my rating from five to four stars because there needs to be a better way to digitize larger items (like poster size), and I feel the quality of the images captured could be improved. Everything else is spot-on.
Trying to downsize but this app has issues. Shows “processing” for days same document and the only way to stop it is to delete the document. Also I have set up my mail but it continuously asks me to set up my mail when I try to email to myself. Hope there is a way to fix this!
Also, if I try to scan a document while the “processing” wheel is spinning, the app closes. I was forced to delete a document I no longer have a hard copy of.

Thanks a lot for your feedback and rating us high! If you will have any issue with our app, please write us a letter to email@example.com. Have a nice day,
Expensive for the lack of efficiency
If all you’re looking for is the ability to occasionally scan a PDF/file/image to attach to an email, this works great. However, if you’re using it everyday for something like scanning receipts, there are too many steps to go through for each receipt. Each receipt requires that you scan, crop, name, upload for OCR (which asks to choose the language every time, then wait while the document uploads), then when the OCR is done, save it to my iCloud account (which has multiple screens to jump through to find the iCloud Drive). It’s too time consuming for me. If it was $8 a year, I might not complain, but I won’t renew my subscription unless they offer a way to make these manual steps automatic each time I scan a new receipt.
