Great for anyone who wants to get paper to digital with as all Adobe tools.
The software is free, more intricate than it may seem, easy to use, and is backed by the comittment of Adobe, Inc. Product continues to improve, and combined with Acrobat or other Adobe iPad Pro apps, just about as good for someone who preserves, categorizes, presents, and shares documents after easy editing and repesoitory in the Creative or Document clouds. In the end, its user choice, with some good alternatives, but this has long term potential and integration is important for ease of use and quality control. I always return to Adobe Scan after trying everything else new. The developers I believe, will maintain their pride in applying knowledge from so many areas within Adobe, that it will become a “Professional” Standard in not too long. Enjoy watching techology change at an accelerating pace. We are envisioning capabilities as though they will come to fuition in a year, but what we can only imagine now, is already very likely a reaity in the making all around us. Thanks Adobe.
Office on the Run, in the Car, in Court or Anywhere!
I work outside my physical office many days of the week and find this has been an awesome tool that I can use anywhere to document transactions, take pictures of signed documents, checks that I write, letters that I receive, or simply anything at all that I want to document for later records or proof of events. I can photograph flat objects like documents, any kind of paper, even 3-D items I want to remember. I can photograph people and/or places and just click the button and I have a PDF record of the transaction, the person(s), the place where something happened or even a scenic shot.i can access the PDF documents from the cloud wherever I am, and using Adobe Professional Version add text, images, diagrams, notes or even other images and then easily distribute by email to friends, family or colleagues. Makes the job of documenting business or pleasure a breeze! I highly recommend it for anyone who works in the field, out of the office, or from a home office.
Excellent for scanning and sending documents on a tight schedule
From having used this app for a little while now, I have found it helpful and convenient for scanning and sending documents on the go. The app is very easy to use, and allows you to send files through most apps that one would need to access pdf files through (ex: gmail, google drive, yahoo mail, Evernote, and so forth). I really appreciate how it allows me to save the pdf files within the app, so that I can access them at anytime. Thus far, I have had no problems emailing the pdf files through my gmail app, and saving them to google drive. The app scans very well, allowing the documents to come out clear, bright, and easy to read. I have also found that it works well with faxing apps, allowing me to be able to fax documents on the go with ease.
Highly recommend for those who are working, college students, and anyone who does not have time to scan and send documents via a printer. You will not be disappointed!
Edge-finding and focussing (spelling intentional) capability less than perfect
I chose to ignore Adobe’s prompting that I upgrade to AdobeScan from the scanning feature included with the Adobe PDF app for a while, because when I’d tried it, it had “grabbed” the document it was supposed to scan as if on some sort of fast-forward setting and estimated the location of the document’s edges incorrectly. It also didn’t take enough time to get a properly-focussed (spelling intentional) image. I’d realized that I needed to figure out how to perform the scan manually, in order to get it precise enough, or find another scanning app. During a later attempt, I was relieved when I was prompted to disable the psychotic-seeming autoscan setting — imagine a coworker coming to your desk and frantically dishevelling a neat pile of paper documents sitting on it while you watch — which I’d never chosen to activate to begin with. With that setting shut off, however, the app still doesn’t “find” the document’s edges as precisely as I’d like. It gives you the option of adjusting its placement of them yourself; however, I preferred the scanning feature of the Adobe PDF app to this separate, supposedly-superior Adobe Scan app.
Amazing AND Free?!?!
I hate writing reviews, but when I get an app that is free and does exactly what I was expecting (with no ads btw), I feel compelled to write a good review since they aren’t making any money off from me. It was simple, easy to use, and had more features than I was expecting. It allows seamlessly easy photo taking of any document/business card/etc., and allows you to crop it how you would like it, or has an auto feature that works wonders. I messed up on some paperwork I needed to fill out, so I tried for an hour to find a scanner that would allow me to upload the image into a pdf file, and allow me to ‘clean’ up the document so I could refill out properly. It did exactly that with no stinking ads constantly popping up, and without any pop-ups that ask you to do a free trial or to sign up for $X money. I’m very impressed by the simplicity this app gives me, and hope this review helps others looking for the same thing I was about an hour ago, lol.
Adobe knows how to do it right
By Alessandra H.
Adobe Scan is by far the best mobile scanning app I’ve ever tried. Downloading and having this app on your phone essentially negates the need for you to own a traditional scanner in my opinion.
The first time I tried the Adobe Scan app, I was genuinely astonished with how well the papers I scanned turned out. I’ve tried so many other “scanner” apps listed in the App Store, but every one has either been completely, or came with a catch that outweighed the apps value in my opinion, so when I found Adobe Scan, I was stoked!
I definitely recommend at least trying Adobe Scan out. Now, of course if you need a higher than normal scanner for higher resolution, sharper scans, then of course an app isn’t going to be of help, but for a normal, everyday person—Adobe Scan is perfect, and believe it or not, but it’s actually pretty surprisingly handy to have a scanner in your pocket at all times too!
By Enough to know better
This is the best scanning app out there. It will auto scan each page for you but you can still edit each corner of the page manually. And because the brilliant when you pick a corner to edit it zooms into that corner in a little bubble outside of where your son is so that you can actually see what it is you’re doing. You can edit each page by caller you can erase certain portions of it you can draw on the pages you can email a link of the PDF to someone you can email an actual PDF to someone. You can export the PDF as JPEG files. There’s nothing that this app can’t do. You can re-order the pages if you scanned them in the wrong order. You can come back to the same file later and add pages and edited at any time. If there’s a better app out there then I have not seen it because I don’t think it exists. I am a teacher and this has saved me countless hours.
Adobe Scan is a Winner!
By Yogi Angeles
This is one of my favorite apps I use to save any document or receipt I want to have on hand and available to refer to in the future. I have tried several different scanning apps and Adobe Scan is by far the best scanning app available. My documents, receipts, photos, etc. come out perfect every time! Adobe really goes above and beyond when it comes to making their apps user friendly while also providing as many options as possible for the customer’s convenience. This is why this app is my “go to” when I need to scan in snd preserve a document, receipt, etc. I am never disappointed with the final product. Thank you for taking the time to think of the customer and going that extra mile when developing the apps you have available on the market so far. I will continue to look for Adobe products first for all of my project needs!
Simple and brilliant
I had just about given up trying to find a “free” scanner that would actually work and was actually free. I had tried so many others that would fail in one way or another. One was so fussy about recording an image that it was almost impossible to make a scan. It kept telling me to move closer even though the page already filled the screen; then it told me to hold still, and refused to take the picture. Another managed to make an image but then refused to let me do anything with it until I “upgraded to pro.” Finally, I discovered the Adobe scanner.
What a difference! Producing a clear image was fast and easy. I made a series of scans of the first page, and found that I could leaf through them quickly, deleting all but the best. Then sending off the resulting scan by email was a snap.
This app kills the competition; it isn’t even close.
Use of Adobe
I have only been able to use Adobe for a few days but I have found it to be extremely useful and I love how fast it helps me with information about a photo when I only have to ask Adobe to give me the information about that photo. I can tell when I get more familiar with using Adobe it will benefit me more and more. Thank you! Kristy Keller
I really don’t know how to use the Adobe to my advantage. I’m afraid of loosing valuable information. Like making sure I am able to get organized and remember where i put it. I need to Adobe scan my passport, drivers license, social security, Birth certificate, Notary, voters registration, concealed weapons permit, organ donation, power of attorney and keep them in an organized way. That’s because I’m not good with being a secretary. I know this is going to make my life so much easer when I get it. My health records and dated how awesome. Thanks Kristy Keller
