[Features of ScanSnap Cloud]
ScanSnap Cloud functionality for the iX500 and iX100 provides users an easy way to scan directly to their favorite cloud services without the need for a computer or mobile device. After quick configuration, ScanSnap Cloud works intelligently behind the scenes to automatically sort scans into four categories: documents, receipts, business cards and photos, to make scanning easier than ever before.
- ScanSnap Cloud optimizes scanned images with automatic size and color detection, automatic page rotation and blank-page removal
- Ability to create searchable PDFs for easy keyword searches up to 500 pages / 250 sheets(*1)
- Automatic file naming for documents, business cards and receipts
- Receive automatic notifications when your scanned images reach their destination
- Change settings or correct a mis-file without having to re-scan(*2)
(*1) Letters may not be recognized correctly depending on the condition of documents.
(*2) ScanSnap Cloud handles scanned images by using high analysis technology. Depending on the contents of a document, however, the wrong process may take place. We recommend that you check your chosen cloud services regularly for misrouted document.

Great in Theory
Like others, I really need this to support iCloud. It makes no sense to save all my scanned documents to another 3rd party when all of my other documents are in iCloud.
But the bigger issue is this: ScanSnap requests full access to your 3rd party cloud service. There is absolutely no reason for it to request/require full access when for example they could request full access to one folder (say ScanSnap on DropBox). This is a huge deal breaker. Yes, I’m trusting ScanSnap with some of my data by virtue of the fact that I’m allowing my docs to go up to their server prior to it being moved to my cloud service of choice. But granting them full access to everything I have is ridiculous.
My workaround: 1) Create a dummy OneDrive account that isn’t used for anything else so there is no other data for Fujitsu to snoop around. 2) I guess I’ll write a script to detect new OneDrive files and move them to iCloud.
This is just one of the permissions you are giving ScanSnap when it access OneDrive (I observed something very similar with DropBox):
ScanSnap Cloud(US) will be able to open and edit OneDrive files, including files shared with you.
Three words for the developer
Like everyone here, I’ve got 3 words for the developer: iCloud! iCloud! iCloud!
I’m tired of using subpar third part cloud storage when I’ve got plenty of iCloud available.
Does not work with a mesh WiFi network
I love my ix500 and was excited about the prospect of scanning directly to the cloud. Unfortunately, however, this app does not even allow the the device to connect to the internet. The reason: I use multiple WiFi routers in my home as part of a Google WiFi mesh network. The app’s proposed solution: get rid of all but one of my routers. That’s not a reasonable solution in 2018. This app (or the firmware, perhaps?) needs to be updated to accommodate how modern homes and offices are networked. Until then it will be unusable for [moderately] normal people like me.
