Ratings and Reviews
The Online Student’s Savior
i’ve been in online school since the beginning of the pandemic, and this app is a lifesaver. it doesn’t limit how many documents you scan like other apps, and its automatic scanning trick is pretty okay. just don’t but the paper on a light colored surface, or have too many other objects in the frame. my favorite part is the ability to directly upload from my phone to the desktop of my computer (since they’re linked by icloud). if that’s not your speed, you can airdrop it to your downloads folder. the back and white filter is just as good as a printer scan, and there’s an option to edit the document after you take the photo. I never needed any other part of the app, so i didn’t need premium, which is amazing. it also uploads as a pdf, which saves me all the trouble of converting it myself. compared to other scan apps, i found this one to be the most efficient, since it works well and doesn’t have any frustrating limits for free users.
This is the scanner app you MUST HAVE
I’ve been using Genius Scan for almost 2 years now, I rarely leave a review for any app, but I feel like this one deserves to be recognized. It is very easy to use, the clarity on the scanned document is great, there’s lots of customizable scanning settings you can choose from, you can also have it automatically upload to dropbox or Google Drive, I even was able to contact the developer about a simple change to the sorting of folders within Google drive by alphabetical order and day were able to accommodate the request in their next update which was extremely helpful. If you are on the go a lot like I am and not always at your desk this app is an absolute lifesaver. Even when I am in my office I don’t even use my copy scanner anymore because it takes too long and the quality on The genius scan app is just as good if not better, and it’s much quicker. Save yourself a ton of time and start using this app today.
Love it. Would upgrade for $3. Not for $8
I love the app. Used it and recommended it since 2013 I’m the free version. Since a week or two ago the “hidden” Save-to-Dropbox functionality was gone from the free version. Fair enough BUT, a) It happened In the background, not through an upgrade, sonI del cheated. B) I would happily upgrade just for that function; I do not need anything else but not for $7.99. I would happily pay a couple of bucks, not so much c) i considered the cloud option but again, totally out of price. I already pay Dropbox and Apple cloud, plus iDrice cloud for backups. $3 a month for just a small subset of documents? Guys, that should be the annual cost, not monthly.
It seems you are trying to skin off a few paying clients instead of broadening your base and making us loyal.
Sadly, After 5 years of happy customer and promoter, I will start to look around for other options. That costs you way more than the extra dollars you are trying to charge.
