The app can export scanned documents as PDF and also does text recognition (OCR). You can easily access all text content or perhaps just the website address or phone number.
You scanned documents are automatically saved to iCloud Drive and available on all your Apple devices.
iPad version supports drag and drop so you can quickly drag scanned documents to other apps.

| Scan
Scan one or multiple pages and adjust the edges if needed before saving the final scan. The app automatically detects the edges of the document for better experience.
You can rotate the scanned document or apply Grayscale, Black & White or Photo filters. Just make sure to do these edits before confirming the scan.

| Export
Easily share scanned documents as individual images or create PDF from all the pages in one scan.

| iCloud
All scanned documents are automatically uploaded to your iCloud Drive for easy access and backup. Just look for the "Scan it" folder. You can also customize this to export single PDF from multiple scans.

| Text Recognition
Scan it features OCR which means that scanned text will get recognized and you can quickly make use of it. For example if you scan business card you will get tappable links in results allowing you to make a call, send an email, open Safari or maps depending on the contents.
This recognized text can also be easily shared.

Simple, fast, and price is right

No need to reinvent the wheel! Scan it provides an easy way to scan documents using the tools already built into iOS by Apple. If you want simple and dont want to mess with subscriptions, this is the tool for you.

Great app

I love the simplicity of the app. It does one thing scan documents and it does that very well. I like that it doesn’t have a lot of clutter that cancan make an app confusing to use. Thanks for a great app, I use it all the time

Simple & Reliable

I just needed a scanner to submit work receipts for reimbursement. After trying many bloated apps that want subscriptions I found this app. It is perfect in every way for what I need, great job!
