  • Excellent document scanning and editing app

    By Giramot
    What a perfectly fitting name for an app - Genius! I’ve installed three apps by these genius app developers namely: Genius Scan; Genius Fax and Genius Sign, and I’ve found them all indeed quite genius and the best set of any other competing apps. All the apps are intelligently developed and are very easy and intuitive to use. Excellent set of apps and I’ve no negative feedback on any of them. Excellent set of apps and congratulations to the developers!! The Genius Scan is amazingly precise in automatically capturing images of documents and receipts and then perfectly orienting them vertically and automatically making the image quality the best even if you are working in even very poor lighting condition. Excellent set of tools are provided to edit, apply filters and formats. The app provides other too many features to work with the scanned images. In short, it’s an app everyone needs to have for their iPhone.
  • 5+ years... Only Scanning App I've Ever Used

    By B_adcock
    I've had this app since the iPhone 5s was released around 2013; since then every phone I've owned has had it installed. The fact that I've never had a need for or desire to explore another scanning app is the greatest aspect about it. I primarily use the *free version for PDF scans [from 1page thru 17 pages before]. The MAGIC feature which automatically scans for... detects, crops, then enahances is great. Provided you heed the tips the app provides to achieve best results. For the average college student, employee, grad student, etc... That only needs to scan something occasionally, wants it to be easy/quick/shareable and reliable... I'd definitely recommend this scanning app. *Since I've never needed to utilize the functions of the paid version, I can't attest to those aspects of the app. But if your at the point of paying for a scanning app. You probably aren't reading this! 🤙🏼😂*
  • Easy to use, and so useful!

    By KennySteven
    I’ve been using Genius Scan for several years to quickly scan documents and file them away on Dropbox or OneDrive. I know those services have their own apps that do document scanning, but they’re clunkier and don’t have the breadth of features that Genius Scan does. It’s one app that makes quick work of scanning, cropping and adjusting, and filing away as a PDF or JPEG. But don’t take my word for it - take the word of my dad, who is 81 years old and regularly complains about technology being hard to use. He wanted to scan in a paper form and get it to his computer, so I texted him a link to Genius Scan along with an offer to call and walk him through it. He didn’t call me but a little while later emailed to say: “I made the PDFs with my phone and emailed it to my computer and printed out copies. The app worked great.” Now that’s high praise!
  • Love it. Would upgrade for $3. Not for $8

    By FreddyLazzaris
    I love the app. Used it and recommended it since 2013 I’m the free version. Since a week or two ago the “hidden” Save-to-Dropbox functionality was gone from the free version. Fair enough BUT, a) It happened In the background, not through an upgrade, sonI del cheated. B) I would happily upgrade just for that function; I do not need anything else but not for $7.99. I would happily pay a couple of bucks, not so much c) i considered the cloud option but again, totally out of price. I already pay Dropbox and Apple cloud, plus iDrice cloud for backups. $3 a month for just a small subset of documents? Guys, that should be the annual cost, not monthly. It seems you are trying to skin off a few paying clients instead of broadening your base and making us loyal. Sadly, After 5 years of happy customer and promoter, I will start to look around for other options. That costs you way more than the extra dollars you are trying to charge.
  • Great app!

    By HDH-J mama
    This is a great little app. I had it on my phone for little incidentals for which I'd used it here and there over the years. Usually for when I needed to sign and scan a document to send. Then I started a project of scanning 20 years worth of hand written journals. I researched scanners, I went to the local library to use their high powered book scanner, I evaluated renting one, finally I tried genius scan to scan the journals with my phone and the more I used it the more features I found and the more I liked it. It has an awesome crop feature that actually helps even out the bump from the binding, it does colored scans or black and white, and I can export the scans directly to a specific folder on my Google drive, with the file name of my choosing. It's a great little app that is way more powerful than it at first seems.
  • a GENIUS idea! 😉

    By Cookiegirl222
    I would recommend this app. This is a great scanner. Really helps me with my homework and assignments! The only downside of this app is when you scan a paper, you get only a few seconds to press edit. Sometimes, I need a few seconds before I press the edit button. I can still edit it after, but it is harder. My suggestion, is make the edit button available right away after the scan, and let people edit whenever they need to, then they can continue when they need to do so. This app really is a great thing during our COVID-19 outbreak. I, for one, think this is a great way to send my teachers my work. My whole grade loves it!! We were taking pictures of our work, but it got too blurry. That is when we resulted in using Genius Scan. A thank you comes from me and my peers.
  • WFH or in office magic

    By MathChicklet
    I’m a math teacher and I’ve been using genius scan for ages. I love how simple it is to use. Today I made an answer key and simply took a picture of the key with my phone. This app will turn it into a pdf which I can upload to my Canvas classroom where my online students can access it. The old-fashioned hardware scanner is not needed. Our college had a few scanners but you had to walk several buildings over in the cold and the rain or whatever, bring your badge, sign in, plug in your usb stick, set up the scan do the scan and walk back. It was a whole production that took loads of time. This app takes me like two minutes max to do the whole thing and in never have to brave the elements. Now that it’s wfh, I don’t have to leave my couch/bed/desk. Thanks To these fantastic developers!! ❤️
  • DagNabbitRabbit🐰 Sprint iPhone 5

    This is a perfect scanning machine!! It really is quite amazing how utilizing the same camera mechanism incorporated within your cell phone, albeit with a more precise set of programming terms, one may exponderate a fan flumming tas~tick Pix!! Or rather, a scan of a document, as it were. A pix that fills your screen from quite a distance back, as long as focused properly, will result in a full size complete page with color pictures, PERFECTLY! Update~Update~Update It just keeps getting better, It's getting better all the time ‼ Now you can perform batch scans quickly and decisively. Dances with Panties. 🐰🌀🐰🍀 New update. New IPhone X Keeps getting better all the time The people over at Grisley labs are terrific and wonderful DagNabbitRabbit Approved 🐰 Update~Update~Update Yet another fantastic update. DagNabbitRabbit🐰IphoneXS MAX Sprint Genius Scan I am happy to say has come with me as I upgrade to yet another iPhone upgrade, Flawlessly. It just keeps getting better with each update from their fantastically talented Programmers. I have Recomended Genius Scan to many friends, business people and Doctors. Never have I failed to elicit a Wow this is a great app, and where can I get it. Definatly DagNabbitRabbit🐰 Approved‼️
  • Love this app!

    By BodyBasics
    I had used a desktop scanner for years. The scanner cost $400 and was a pain to use. When the company who manufactured it stopped upgrading the software, I found myself in a quandary as ai had upgraded my iMac’s OS and now could I longer use my expensive scanner. So I went to try this $7 app and I am thrilled. Not only does it work well, it saves me time because now I scan my receipts as I go instead of letting them pile up on my desk. And because I’m sending them to a cloud drive, my bookkeeper has access to them faster too. The software provides great options for scanning, hanging up pages, as well as tools to enhance the image. And finally, customer service is fast and courteous. In my opinion you’d have to be an idiot not to use genius scan!
  • Amazing Scanner app!

    By D_egoo
    It is the first scanner app where not only could I add multiple pdf files into one, but also add images from my phone to then convert into one single pdf file. Other scanner apps supposedly are able to do the same but they charge extra for those features. Just for curiosity I actually bought the feature of combing multiple pdf files into one for one of those Scanner Apps, and it failed big time, so it is very generous for this app to provide that feature for free. Finally, the quality of the scans are great, they do appear clearer once you take them than when they’re sent out but it is possible that maybe I’m just not placing my documents correctly as the picture is being taken.
