Mobile Scanner 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.

Mobile Scanner 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.

Mobile Scanner 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.

Mobile Scanner 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.

Excellent Scanner App 👍👍👍👍👍

This is the first Review I’ve ever been moved to write, and you’ll immediately see why I felt I had to. I’ve tried quite a few scanner apps over the years and Scanbot is far and away the best I’ve used. A number of other apps require a monthly subscription to use their Pro features, and so being able to make a very reasonable one-off payment is a major plus. Even when working in the office, I use Scanbot rather than the scan function on my printer, which in comparison appears very basic and practically driven by steam.

I’ve also downloaded Unfade, the photo scanner, as I’ve got a lot of old photo albums from the 1920s onwards which are now very fragile. I’ve just begun scanning the earliest photos; if Unfade proves to be as good as Scanbot, then the makers will have to add another rating star to the review page. I shall have great pleasure giving them 6/6! 🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠🌠

Great scanner application, but...

...I have had a few issues with some recipients not being able to open my scans at their end after sending the documents to them via email as PDFs. I currently have the free version and haven't upgraded to the pro version for this reason... which for me is the main purpose for owning and using this application. If this worked 100% of the time, as I think it should, then I wouldn't hesitate in getting and trialling the Pro version (before using as my main scanner - something that I need to do many times every day whilst away from my desktop printer/scanner/fax unit).
Am I missing something, perhaps...?
I think I have been very generous with my star feedback considering the amount of time it takes to take all of these scans/photos which I might then need to fall back on to send on to any recipients as they are, anyway! This is in the hope that there might have been a very simple reason for the inconsistencies...

A genuinely useful app

Move over all the millions (probably) of apps that claim to save time and make your life easier, this is a genuinely useful app. I used to have the free version but during the offer period paid for the VIP version and unlocked the OCR function.
This app now means that every letter/document/manual/receipt or anything I like the look of can be scanned, read and saved for easy finding in the future. I love that you can set up shortcuts to upload to specific folders on Google drive for easy storage too! This is one of those apps that everyone would have a use for if you get post.
