Scandy Pro for iOS allows users to capture full-color 3D scans with their iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR, and the new iPad Pro (2018 edition). Users can save scans and share files as .ply, .stl, or .obj formats. All rendering is done on-device and there is no need to register or store files in the cloud. Every user is provided with one free mesh save every day. Unlimited saves provided with the the purchase of a subscription. Added short video capture for sharing scans via social media.
You no longer need to carry a peripheral scanner with your mobile device.
Users can choose to purchase the scans and share the files as .ply, .stl, or .obj formats. User may also upload to Sketchfab directly from the app. Tapping the Viewer Mode icon from Scan Preview drops your scan into Augmented Reality where you can place points on the mesh and measure the distance between them.
PRICE AND TERMS:
Scandy Pro offers the following auto-renewing subscription options, which unlocks the ability to have unlimited saves of 3D meshes captured by the app:
* 1 week of unlimited saves: $1.99 (USD)
* 1 month of unlimited saves: $5.99 (USD)
* 1 year of unlimited saves: $49.99 (USD)
Prices may vary in other countries respecting your local currency exchange rate. Your subscription will be charged to your iTunes account. At the end of the term, unless auto-renewables subscriptions are disabled, your subscription will automatically renew in your iTunes account. You will be charged for the regular price of your subscription within 24 hours prior to the end of the current term. You can turn off automatic renewal in your iTunes account settings at any time, but you must do so at least 24 hours before the end of the current term. Refunds will not be provided for the unused portion of any term.
1. Scandy Pro requires an iPhone X, XS, XS Max, XR or new iPad Pro to create scans since it depends on the TrueDepth front-facing sensor.
2. Users may purchase a subscription for unlimited file downloads.
3. If deleted, a 3D model is not recoverable. Scandy Pro does not backup or store any data in the cloud.
4. Scandy Pro is GPU intensive! You may notice a slowdown after your 5th or 6th scan in succession. Your iPhone is smart enough to slow its processing down during repetitive intensive operations. Taking time between scans will offer better performance.
5. All 3D scan data, processing, and storage take place solely on-device in Scandy Pro. Scan as you please, privately.

Ratings and Reviews
This is the first time I’ve ever used a 3D scanner. What a cool experience!
I read a few of the more helpful reviews as well as the app description before downloading. I garnered a good idea of the limitations of the tech and my expectations were well met.
On a tangential note (because I gotta say something about this), I’m saddened to see that this app has another slew of ideologically motivated 1-star reviews.
The process of creating a product is deeply personal; putting oneself out into the world is, I believe, amongst the most courageous of human endeavors.
To those who have (or are about to) leave a 1-star review with accusations of price gouging and the like, please take a moment and dig for some empathy. There are human beings on the receiving end of your words. They were apparently captured by the idea of bringing something new into the world. They then spent a bunch of time (seriously! A buuunch... likely hundreds to thousands of hours pecking away at a keyboard). And they care deeply enough about the work to have continued working on it long after its initial release. How they present it to the world is informed by their own preferences, which likely are quite different from yours or mine. That certainly doesn't make them villains.
To the devs: thanks for giving me an awe inspiring moment this evening. Keep digging into yourselves. You're making great things.

Thanks so much for that kind review Jedidiah! We LOVE the fact that you found it a cool experience. That is truly awesome payback. While this is a labor of love for us, we do need to keep the lights on, so we appreciate you voicing your thoughts on the 1-star reviews around pricing. We get it - free is great. That's why we do offer free saves every day. We hope that enough users will find value from using the app and be willing to pay. Thanks for using Scandy Pro and letting us know you had a great experience with it.
Scan everything, you'll be glad you did
No seriously, scan everything! It's super convenient being able to pull your phone out and take measurements of your stuff whenever you need. Took a scan of my house plants because duh. Weeks later I was able to get the perfect container while I was at Target since I could just pull out my phone and measure their planters! There's always room for improvement in any app but I love scanning all the things, it's awesome.
Good app / crap pricing
This app isn’t polished enough to warrant the pricing model (looses tracking pretty quickly on iPhone X). Also, there isn’t any cloud processing or anything to warrant the pricing model since its all handled by the local hardware.
Lastly, it says it works on iPad but it doesn’t. The app starts by asking you to press the button but there is no button to press on the iPad. Tested with the 2018 iPad Pro 12.9”.
Good design ideas are the haptic taps when it looses tracking.
The developers will tell you you don’t need cloud processing or networked connections but are charging with a model that acts like you are. You can get away with charging per-scan IF you are providing a service to each scan, but the developers are not. They expect you to pay for a subscription without providing anything on their end. This is a poor model and someone there knows it but is too stubborn to do anything about it. I imagine a competitive product is on the horizon that has their act together. Hell, maybe I’ll make it myself.
Developer Response ,
Hi Justin. Thanks for trying Scandy Pro. We made Scandy Pro so that scanning could be done without a network connection and your scans could stay private without the need for remote processing. We make no claims that we are processing in the cloud. We are asking users to pay for patented on-device meshing software with a software-as-a-service model. Those users that find scanning useful to their workflow (or simply fun) appreciate the pay-as-you-go model. We offer every user a free save every week. We also offer a free app - CappyAR that allows unlimited free scan uploads to the Cappy stream. Scandy Pro does work on the iPad as a mirrored device for networked scanning. While we intend to enable Scandy Pro on the new TrueDepth iPad Pro models, we have not made any claims that you can capture a scan on the new iPad Pros yet. (EDIT: Scandy Pro now works with the new iPad Pro)
