useful application

The app is very practical. The software automatically recognises the borders of the pages you are scanning and it takes a shot without your pressing on the screen, which is especially useful since pressing your finger on the screen sometimes moves the phone ever so slightly. It’s a nice little advantage. Another thing that is very useful is that it automatically makes a pdf of whatever you scan and uploads it to the Adobe Document Cloud. It works in conjunction with the entire Adobe ecosystem so you don’t have to bother transfering or uploading your scans manually between different document storing systems. Overall a good app.

I can’t press the button to capture manually the document.

It’s a bug that makes me wait for the app to recognize the document and to scan it. The button that you press to take manually doesn’t respond.

Adobe is yet the only company that forces you to use Document Cloud for no reason.
Their cloud is so underdeveloped that they cannot use folders (although you created them in Scan, it still reports files with the same name in different folders impossible to save).
I remember that only DOS cannot delete non-empty folders, 30 years later, Document Cloud has the same offer :(
Although everything it is updated to the cloud, you dare not offered any client for PC/mac and the web does not allow you to select all or download multiple files. Just Adobe junk.
Although integrated with OneDrive and gDrive, Adobe Document Cloud cannot save there anything. Exporting my scans is done via share....
Try using Files on iOS with Document Cloud, and you see no point in living.
Keep up reaping customers, Adobe!
