Ditch the office scanner!
Just snap a photo of your document, and get a PDF file you can instantly send to your colleagues, all from your iPhone or iPad.

That processor in your phone is quite a little monster. Smart PDF Scanner uses it fully to make the best possible scans. Even full-page articles come out tack-sharp and easy to read.

It automatically detects the page edges and corrects for perspective. Pick full-color scans, grayscale, or black-and-white for maximum legibility. FlashAssist can take perfect scans even in poor lighting conditions. You can even change the correction and enhancement settings after the fact.

Scanning is just half the problem. You need a good way to keep all your documents organized, and easy to find later. Smart PDF Scanner uses a simple tagging system that is much easier and more powerful than the regular folder system. File documents under custom color-coded categories with just a couple taps. Browse and sort files by category with a couple more.

It's the way filing should work.

Export scans as PDFs or images, and email or print directly from the App. Files can also be shared via AirDrop, or sent to another App.

Easily upload to Dropbox, Google Drive, and other cloud services with the corresponding third party App. Send PDFs and images to services such as Evernote or OneNote to take advantage of their OCR capabilities.

+ Quickly scan and send contracts and forms
+ Keep scans of important documents in your pocket, separate form the Photo Library
+ Scan all your travel receipts for easy expense reports
+ Keep digital copies of your notes and sketches
+ Scan articles and send them to iBooks to read on the go
+ And more!

Smart PDF Scanner uses the latest technologies packed into your iPhone and iPad, but we've worked hard to make it as easy and fast to use as possible. Intelligent image processing eliminates the need for fiddling with complicated controls. That way, you can focus on getting the job done, and doing what you do best.

Here are a few tips to get the best scans:
+ Place your document on a darker surface to improve the edge auto-detection.
+ You can drag the corners of the blue rectangle to fine tune it after taking a photo.
+ Make sure there is adequate lighting. Use the flash in low-light conditions.
+ You can tap on a page to edit its scan settings (including edges) after the fact.

We are dedicated to handcrafting the best possible Apps for your iPhone and iPad, and we hope you enjoy using Smart PDF Scanner. If you have any additional questions, please drop us a line via our feedback page.

Incredibly useful and easy to use!

This app is so easy to use and super useful! I work at a school and we don’t have a copy machine in the classroom, but sometimes I like to make copies of (in-house, non-confidential) forms before we submit them, mostly just so I have proof that I submitted them and can easily redo them if they get misplaced by admin (sigh...). This way I can just take a picture and email it to my work email and there’s my copy, instantly. I can save the pdf to my computer files and print it out for my paper files if I need to. I’ll use it the same way at home too, rather than fighting with my printer/scanner, just take a picture, email the pdf and there’s my copy. Seriously one of the most useful apps I’ve downloaded.

Great app. A real time saver. But...

I am so happy to have this App. It’s really worth of the money you pay. It help me to save a lot of money and time where i need to scan 75 page book in any shop, but done with it more professionally. But the problem is once you continuously scans, after 50 or 55 pages this App keep crashing. Luckily this App will save automatically till last successful page scanned. Hope developers will try to solve this. Or might be my phone issue.

Extremely useful

I use this app to shoot pics of documents I need to share. And can instantly send them as a PDF or an image and send them to whomever needs it either via email or text message. I highly recommend this app for anybody we need to send documents immediately. It’s awesome!!!
