SwiftScan values your privacy. We will never store or save your documents, or use them for any purpose. All document-related activity happens on your device, or with the cloud backup provider you choose.

SwiftScan uses the most advanced scanning technology in its scanner app. Scans start at 200 dpi, premium quality comparable to desktop scanners. Various color modes, auto-optimization and blur-reduction help you to get the most out of your scans.

SwiftScan is blazingly fast and incredibly easy. Hold your iPhone over any document, receipt, whiteboard, or QR code to scan and save it as a PDF or JPG quickly. The edges of the document are automatically identified so that only the document itself is scanned. It captures the best possible image in the perfect moment.

SwiftScan works with any type of document, from paper documents to business cards, QR codes, barcodes, notes- even whiteboards or post-its. It saves the documents that are important for you and gets rid of paper clutter.

So easy to use!

App is easy to use, does exactly as advertised! Makes sending copies of items to others extremely easy and fast!

What OCR? And subscription to get new features!

Great ripoff. Pay for the app, think you’ll get regular updates with new features, but surprise! You paid for an app which will never get new features unless you keep paying.

Also, it has never successfully read any document. It tells me it found nothing when I hold my phone over text, then tells me to snap a picture manually. What’s the point of claiming it has OCR?

Developer Response ,

Hey Kiransu,

Thanks for using Scanbot and reaching out to us. Don't worry! We did not take away any features from you! You can still use all of the old Pro Features that you unlocked earlier, from text recognition to automatic upload everything except for the new Scanbot 9 Features is still available in the app. You can skip the subscription if you don't want these new additions and just stick to the old Pro Features without paying. More information about our thought process and reasoning can be found in our new blog post ( You can find an overview of the features each option includes here:

Best regards

Great app but suddenly wants a subscription

This is my go-to scanning app. Easy to use and quick.

But suddenly after an app update, Scanbot wants a subscription. The release notes didn’t mention this and now I’m stuck in version 9. It feels like I’ve lost a great tool.

Developer Response ,

Hi there!

Sorry to hear that. If you've bought the Pro version before the update you won't lose any of its features though :)

Kind regards
