What’s New

Version 7.7.1

Today’s update is mainly about new features – Displaying documents from iCloud, “Select All” function and Flashlight instead of a flash on camera!
Let’s dive in, shall we?

## Displaying documents from iCloud
Some of you have been complaining on chaotic and slow document loading on the homepage: you either didn’t see any scans for a long time or scans loaded haphazardly pushing already loaded ones down. We’re still developing the feature, but at this point documents load much faster, all at the same time and in the correct order according to the sorting. For you it will result in a smoother loading experience. Yay!

## Improved Drag & Drop
You also have reported difficulty with DnD on 3D Touch devices since iOS 13. We tested and discovered that 3D Touch is somehow conflicting with the DnD on the aforementioned devices, we fixed that. For you it will result in a smoother Drag and Drop experience.

## “Select All’ function
Another long-term ask from our users, who want to easily select all documents to share or delete them. We’ve added this simple button so that you can go into Select mode on your homepage.

And here are some features outside of homepage:

* Improved Pages Management
Pages Management hides behind the ‘4 squares’ icon in Scanner and affords you to copy, move or delete pages in a document. We’ve added navigation mode to help users go to the needed page of a multi-page document.

* Flashlight instead of Flash on camera
When it comes to scanning on your phone in low light, the options are kind of terrible: a super bright flash whitens documents and without it documents end up blurry or grainy. Using the flashlight it will yield more control (since you can play around with the angle at which the light falls on the document) and better results (better border detection, less additional shadows from the burst of flash light).

We hope, you love this update as much as we do.

Highly recommend

I am extremely impressed by this app. Given the recent events, I have to do a lot of work from home. This app allows me to create quality pdf scans of documents without an office quality printer/scanner. It also can have multiple pages for one document. It’s everything I wanted from an app like this.

Latest update broke it

This has been one of the almost perfect apps I use it ten times a day because of its speed and accuracy, however I have deducted a star because the latest update has caused it to lock up ( yes I rebooted and followed the instructions) it locks up and takes FOREVER to get where I can scan into my current file (you should be able to default to last opened file anyways) I had two taps now I can tap it ten times no response I hate it that it no longer works please just take it back to previous version until you can work out the bugs!! The only improvement was the light anyways.

Years of use and still love it

Been using this app for years and still love it! I'm a Realtor and love that I have a scanner at my finger tips for contracts, floorplans, surveys, disclosures..anything I need scanned to a PDF instantly!! The ease of borders and color vs black and white or grayscale allows me to get the right image every time. Stores as well so I can retrieve them instantly! Love it!
