An Incredible Document Scanner

Have you ever wanted to make a digital copy of your physical papers and files? Well then, QuickScan is the app for you! Creating digital copies of all of your physical documents is extraordinarily simple and takes no time at all to copy each individual document. Simply open the app, press the New Scan button, and hold your document in front of your iPhone or iPad’s camera and the app will automatically take a picture of the document, allowing you to quickly move on to your next document to continue creating digital copies of all of your physical files. If having the app automatically snap a photo of your file is too fast or too imprecise for what you are wanting, you can always enable manual shutter to be able to better position your photo, prior to manually snapping a photo of your document, or simply edit the cropping of each of your document’s individual photos. After you finish taking photos of your documents with this fantastic app, then you can share those documents to whoever it is that you might want to have your documents, or you can save them for later. In addition to being a stellar document scanner, QuickScan collects no data at all and has absolutely no ads.

Still the best OCR scanner in my opinion

After using the latest version of "Quickscan" I continue to be impressed with the quality of the scanning output and the English OCR.
Regarding English OCR, the app is almost flawless in reading even poor quality photos or PDFs and translating them into readable and searchable PDF text versions. The app also continues to do a non-destructive conversion. That way if a word doesn't correctly translate, it will still appear as the original.
This latest rollout includes the ability to store your scans in the app. That is really helpful sometimes when you need to go back and make a change to a prior scan. You can now do some basic editing within the app, such re-ordering or deleting pages before the conversion.
This update provides a noticeable improvement in the image quality of PDF scan, especially if set to the highest quality scan setting.
Best of all, this app is *free*. I find that unbelievable given the quality. So if you download it and find it as useful as I do, give the developer a tip and we will continue to receive updates to the best OCR scanner on the App Store, IMO.

I cannot stress how amazing this app is and also simple to use! The scanning is second to none, and today it was actually needed as part of my professional life. I’ve had to work from home this past week, and I was required to scan and then in a multi-page document. Do I drive 40 minutes to work just to use the scanner? Nope! Fired this up on my iPhone 13 Pro, scanned the pages, it put them together on a PDF with a simple button press, and I sent it as an email. That was that. Yes, there are other apps that scan out there and do similar things, but none bring it together like this! Easy to understand and navigate, no ads (but you can, and should, donate!), and there when you need it! There is no reason to NOT have this on your phone!
