Amazing scanner

This is the best document scanner. The last update seems to be a little slow to acquire the document during the auto scan feature (you have to hold it perfectly still or it won’t lock on the page) but that is a small price to pay for the awesome features and clear/clean scan results.

UPDATE Aug 3, 2021

They have fixed the auto scan feature and it is back to being quick and cleanly detects the pages. What an amazing product!

What a neat app

I had this app for a while and used it occasionally! It was ok! Then recently I started using it again after the new update and it was like a whole new app! Recently, I had to do business transaction, sign forms, etc. I normally would have used my computer scanner but tried Genius Scan on my phone instead! I was impressed with it’s ability to recognize pages after pages and then focus and scan them quicker then my own scanner right on my kitchen table. It scan them automatically, one at the time, group them and crop them just right! It convert document from other source also! It made my desktop scanner almost obsolete for smaller jobs! Highly recommend it! Keep up the good work!

I love this app. It worked really good for me but now I cannot export any document to any email or to file. Please help
