And if you missed the release notes for Genius Scan 5.2:
TEXT RECOGNITION (5.2)
Available in Genius Scan+, this feature recognizes text in your scanned document: when you export a document, Genius Scan will embed the text version. If you want to, you can also just export your document as text (for instance to copy its content to another app). This also makes your documents searchable based on their content, be it in Genius Scan or in other locations. Your last receipt for "Starbucks" can be found easily by just typing a couple letters. Last but not least, you can scan business cards and extract their content to create contacts on your phone.
iCLOUD DRIVE AUTO-EXPORT
You can now auto-export your documents to iCloud Drive and they will automatically appear in your iCloud Drive/Genius Scan folder

Ratings and Reviews
There are literally like 40 different but yet completely the same Scanner. The subtle differences, if any, may be that you can have one “singular” thing that you can’t unlock on your favorite Scanner app. Like exporting or importing or saving for offline use, etc etc. I think it’s a waisted game some developers play when it comes to their scanner applications and the free to paid features that separate one app from the next. Honestly, I have no life,.so I’m one of the few that have time to try all of them and then slowly delete the ones I saw as more of a hassle, didn’t have that one thing (it can be whatever you need it to be depending on ones needs). But I’m gonna stop here bc I’m really just chatting randomly, but this “Genius Scanner” is not half bad, different maker, app color and logo, same results...lol. But I will give it about an B+! If u got this far in my review, your cool.,.i like you. Sooo thank you Apple, this was a complete fun and somewhat enjoyable review.
This is the scanner app you MUST HAVE
I’ve been using Genius Scan for almost 2 years now, I rarely leave a review for any app, but I feel like this one deserves to be recognized. It is very easy to use, the clarity on the scanned document is great, there’s lots of customizable scanning settings you can choose from, you can also have it automatically upload to dropbox or Google Drive, I even was able to contact the developer about a simple change to the sorting of folders within Google drive by alphabetical order and day were able to accommodate the request in their next update which was extremely helpful. If you are on the go a lot like I am and not always at your desk this app is an absolute lifesaver. Even when I am in my office I don’t even use my copy scanner anymore because it takes too long and the quality on The genius scan app is just as good if not better, and it’s much quicker. Save yourself a ton of time and start using this app today.
Love it. Would upgrade for $3. Not for $8
I love the app. Used it and recommended it since 2013 I’m the free version. Since a week or two ago the “hidden” Save-to-Dropbox functionality was gone from the free version. Fair enough BUT, a) It happened In the background, not through an upgrade, sonI del cheated. B) I would happily upgrade just for that function; I do not need anything else but not for $7.99. I would happily pay a couple of bucks, not so much c) i considered the cloud option but again, totally out of price. I already pay Dropbox and Apple cloud, plus iDrice cloud for backups. $3 a month for just a small subset of documents? Guys, that should be the annual cost, not monthly.
It seems you are trying to skin off a few paying clients instead of broadening your base and making us loyal.
Sadly, After 5 years of happy customer and promoter, I will start to look around for other options. That costs you way more than the extra dollars you are trying to charge.
