Simple and Does the Job for Free

I have used several PDF file conversion tools. I have used the native one in Apple notes. I have also used the native one in Microsoft OneDrive cloud services, because they also allow you to scan multiple pages without stopping, amongst others, including Microsoft Lens and others. I do not know why I have passed on downloading this one before, but I did.

So I didn’t think I need to download this, but I was bored and I did. And I’m very happy. My grandmother is 88, and she just had to go to a nursing home, and I am having to scan all of her documents, insurance cards and you name it. And thank goodness I downloaded this application because it gets it right on the first time. It’s free, and ad free, and I’m very grateful that I downloaded it and thankful to the programmers at Adobe for making it free, and simple enough to handle (what would otherwise be kind of considered as “big jobs”) what most people would ever need.

Verdict — simple, free, user friendly, and requires no jumping through hoops, etc. works for me! Thank you Adobe.

Privacy problems.

I tried to submit a privacy question. After I had already successfully logged into my Adobe account , I had to correctly solve a captcha,Provide my email address and name again, probably verify my address, submit my question and then solve a second captcha correctly. Asked: I am wondering about your privacy policy as a relates to documents scanned with Adobe Scan - your iOS mobile pdf scanning app. I’ve been looking through your policies to try and find a clear statement that you’re not going to look at or share of my scanned documents unless required by law. And that that applies whether I’m in the US or UK at the time. can you make such a statement? Can you please make it easier to find if you’ve made such a statement? And refer me too it/them? I have opted out of the machine learning part but that doesn’t address my question really. Also it’s pretty low to make it so hard to submit questions like this! I’m already logged in and I have to give you all my information all over again and validate my email address? Do you think that’s respectful? I’m trying to decide between using your product and camscanner or neither. and when you reply please include this question in your reply. OK? And can you answer the same questions for Adobe acrobat reader PDF maker iOS app?I hope they respond and I’ll update this if they do!

Edge-finding and focussing (spelling intentional) capability less than perfect

I chose to ignore Adobe’s prompting that I upgrade to AdobeScan from the scanning feature included with the Adobe PDF app for a while, because when I’d tried it, it had “grabbed” the document it was supposed to scan as if on some sort of fast-forward setting and estimated the location of the document’s edges incorrectly. It also didn’t take enough time to get a properly-focussed (spelling intentional) image. I’d realized that I needed to figure out how to perform the scan manually, in order to get it precise enough, or find another scanning app. During a later attempt, I was relieved when I was prompted to disable the psychotic-seeming autoscan setting — imagine a coworker coming to your desk and frantically dishevelling a neat pile of paper documents sitting on it while you watch — which I’d never chosen to activate to begin with. With that setting shut off, however, the app still doesn’t “find” the document’s edges as precisely as I’d like. It gives you the option of adjusting its placement of them yourself; however, I preferred the scanning feature of the Adobe PDF app to this separate, supposedly-superior Adobe Scan app.
