Faster way to scan and OCR documents, even if they are curled, with your iPhone
* Produce a sharp image by our image enhancement technology *

FasterScan lets you instantly scan multi-pages document and send out when there is no scanner nearby. By having it, you can scan not only documents in sight, but also whiteboards, receipts, business cards, posters, coupons, books ...etc.

It can fast auto-detect document edges from a picture, correct perspective distortion, remove shadows and brighten it up to produce a clear and sharp document, especially useful in a Low-Light environment.

OCR / Recognize text from scanned images and export result as txt or docx files.

Photo Collage:
- Combine multiple pages into one sheet.
It's very useful especially when you need to print multiple pages (e.g. two sides of ID cards) on one A4/Letter paper.

In addition, FasterScan has a built-in PDF viewer for previewing scanned documents and browsing pages in detail. Draw lines, annotate, or sign on the scanned image. You can easily swipe over a page to delete it, tap on the Edit button to reorder pages in list, or moving pages between documents.

When you have a long list of documents, it is easy to use folders for organizing documents: create, delete, rename, and move documents between folders. You can also use password to protect documents in a folder from unauthorized view.

In-app fax sending and receiving is convenient especially when you are out of office or have no fax machine at all.
You will receive a push notification when a fax is sent or received succesffuly or failed for what reason.

Each PDF file can be accessed directly from iTunes or WiFi file sharing by tapping on the "Generate PDFs" button or the "WiFi file sharing" button in the settings screen. You can also email documents out as PDF or JPEG files.

Other ways to export documents:
- Fax scans to over 100 countries instantly (cost calculated by the number of pages and recipient country and paid via in-app purchase).
- Print documents via AirPrint.

Backup and Restore documents: (paid function via in-app purchase)
- Backup your documents safely to Mac / PC. Whenever you buy a new phone or lose access to your old one, you will still be able to restore them.
- Restore deleted documents manually. It is very useful especially when you accidently delete important documents.
- Restore to any date like a time machine. You can keep multiple backups on different dates.

Receive faxes: (non auto renew subscription)
Support dozones of countries (we kept adding more) for users to subscribe a fax number for receiving faxes.

Tip: For best edge detection, please place your documents in high contrast to the background, i.e. put your white paper on a dark table.

Really great app

FasterScan is very user friendly. It’s very easy to use. They also make it easy to keep your documents organized by allowing you to create folders that can also be locked so that no one can access the files within it. You are also able to buy access to a cloud server so you can have access to all your files from multiple devices. However, it is not required to use the app. I highly recommend this app for anyone who wants to keep their documents organized and safe.

tried hard ,

Devastated, sad and very angry that no one warned me

I’ve used this app for the last few years and if recommend it to friends and family. Stupidly, I didn’t back up of the documents thinking they were secure within this app. Recently I noticed that I must have accidentally or inadvertently deleted the app, though I don’t really know how that occurred. I put the app back on via the App Store and noticed all of my documents from the last few years are gone. Completely deleted and I am devastated. I lost a lot, a lot, a LOT of important data!! I search the frequently asked questions and I search the Google for any help in recovery, and amazingly, I couldn’t find one sentence of help. Please, if anyone knows if there’s any possibility of recovering my documents, please let me know how to go about doing that. Someone should’ve warned me about the possibility of deletion if one accidentally deleted the app. Again, I don’t know how it even got deleted! Best guess is I must’ve hit the little X when I was trying to take a picture or something as iPhone is fickle that way sometimes. Very very upset with this company and will be warning all of my friends and family.

Quick and easy, for the most part.

I’ve been using this app now for several years and the simplicity is what keeps me going. I mainly only use the basic options as all I do is copy/scan black and white documents. Being able to categorize everything in folders is a plus. The only issue I’m running into now is that I am using it more and more and to find a specific document I have to spend extra time scrolling through a particular folder- if I’m even looking in the right folder. Would be five stars if there was a search option to filter for documents. Other than that- simple, easy and it just works.
