Goodbye scanners and fax machines
Love this app. Use it a few times a week to "scan" my documents, receipts, book excerpts - whatever I want to keep as a digital file. Then I "share" to my Google Drive to store in the cloud, "share" to iBooks or GoodReader to have on my phone, "share" to CudaSign if I need to sign it first, and/or "send" as an email attachment, and I love that I can do all of the above. It would be nice to be able to select all the options you want to do from one screen, rather than go back and select a new option each time. It does sometimes (rarely) crash, but I have never lost any images. I like that it keeps copies of prior scans in case I need to go back. The cropping is pretty good, especially if you put a dark background behind what you are scanning. I like the "enhance" feature to optimize the printed text, and the ability to toggle easily between the enhanced version and the original. The quick toggle between PDF and image is also great. One minor annoyance is that, for some reason, the app will occasionally show the tutorial even when I haven't updated it and have been using it for months. All in all, a must-have app for me. I used to carry around docs, waiting for a time I was near a scanner or fax. Now, combined with cloud storage, a signing app like CudaSign, and email, it has allowed me to recycle paperwork immediately and free myself from clutter, scanners, and fax machines. Why do companies even use fax machines anymore?
A Must Have for College Students
Scannable is maybe my most used app ever. I’ve used it every single night for the past year, scanning homework assignments. No professor wants physical papers anymore, it’s all about uploading scans. I’ve had classes where people get no credit on assignments because their scans were poor. Not me. Scannable is super easy to make sure your papers are crisp and readable. It automatically takes the picture but lets you adjust the edges afterwards??? And not just edge by edge, you can move each individual corner so you get the best view of your page. I have literally never seen another app that lets you do that. I normally email them to myself so I can submit on my computer but that is an easy built in function. I know this review sounds like a marketing campaign but I was just talking with a friend about how idk what I’d do without Scannable. It’s WILD that this is free to use with no ads????? Like the reason I am back on the app store to write this is bc I was sure I must have paid for it at some point but NOPE. Every college students dream app tbh
Great product, but still some problems
I honestly like this scanning app a lot; the scans are super fast, the auto detected borders are fairly accurate, and the end product is a great balance between quality and file size.
That said, there are some problems I’d like to see fixed. I use this app predominantly for scanning books for research, but the app gets overwhelmed and is liable to crash the larger the file size gets. I’ve lost so many scanned books this way. It also stops being able to detect borders as the scanning continues. A simple fix could be to automatically save after a certain number of pages and start a new file. Also, having an adjustable colored border option would remove the need to auto detect borders every time a page is turned; the user would just need to fit the text within the confines of border (as a bonus, it would cut out any background - including fingers - that would fall within that frame). I’d like to see more options for adjusting size and quality as well.
All that aside, Scannable is still one of the best scanning apps I’ve found so far, and having these few added improvements (even as a paid add-on) would make it ideal.
