Ditch the office scanner!
Just snap a photo of your document, and get a PDF file you can instantly send to your colleagues, all from your iPhone or iPad.

That processor in your phone is quite a little monster. Smart PDF Scanner uses it fully to make the best possible scans. Even full-page articles come out tack-sharp and easy to read.

It automatically detects the page edges and corrects for perspective. Pick full-color scans, grayscale, or black-and-white for maximum legibility. FlashAssist can take perfect scans even in poor lighting conditions. You can even change the correction and enhancement settings after the fact.

Scanning is just half the problem. You need a good way to keep all your documents organized, and easy to find later. Smart PDF Scanner uses a simple tagging system that is much easier and more powerful than the regular folder system. File documents under custom color-coded categories with just a couple taps. Browse and sort files by category with a couple more.

It's the way filing should work.

Export scans as PDFs or images, and email or print directly from the App. Files can also be shared via AirDrop, or sent to another App.

Easily upload to Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cloud services with the corresponding third party App. Send PDFs and images to services such as Evernote or OneNote to take advantage of their OCR capabilities.

+ Quickly scan and send contracts and forms
+ Keep scans of important documents in your pocket, separate form the Photo Library
+ Scan all your travel receipts for easy expense reports
+ Keep digital copies of your notes and sketches
+ Scan articles and send them to iBooks to read on the go
+ And more!

Smart PDF Scanner uses the latest technologies packed into your iPhone and iPad, but we've worked hard to make it as easy and fast to use as possible. Intelligent image processing eliminates the need for fiddling with complicated controls. That way, you can focus on getting the job done, and doing what you do best.

Here are a few tips to get the best scans:
+ Place your document on a darker surface to improve the edge auto-detection.
+ You can drag the corners of the blue rectangle to fine tune it after taking a photo.
+ Make sure there is adequate lighting. Use the flash in low-light conditions.
+ You can tap on a page to edit its scan settings (including edges) after the fact.

We are dedicated to handcrafting the best possible Apps for your iPhone and iPad, and we hope you enjoy using Smart PDF Scanner. If you have any additional questions, please drop us a line via our feedback page.

Mobile scanner that’s light enough to take everywhere

Scanner works! Flawlessly. With options to export in colour, grey scale or B&W, either as an image or a pdf, it takes the hassle of trying to find a scanner when your Hi-res phone cameras can act as one and even more. Adding OCR functionality would be awesome, with extra language support, but then again I have apps for all that and can use the exports from this app to do further work. Simple. Stylistically just right, and minimalist with no room for error or having to learn a new interface, this app is often part of my arsenal when working using only my iPhone as a mobile office. Thanks for this. Given it 5 stars for the sheer ease of function that follows the easy form so well

Not as good as it was

Not used this for a while since it was updated.
Used on an iPad. Shutter button in wrong place, needs to be next to the home button or impossible to trigger if pad is in a case, as mine is. No way of controlling the blue scan area. If it can't detect a good edge contrast, it just flickers all over the image and never settles, never know what shape of scan it's going to take, and it's visually irritating, a blue box shifting all over the image. Abandoned the app and resorted to camera in the end..
I remember it being better and easier to use. Not an improvement.
