Apps We Like #004 - Scanbot


Apps that transform paper documents to digital versions are a crowded space, especially on iOS. But after testing many of them over a period of many months I have found a clear favorite. Scanbot has all the features you will ever need without feeling overcomplicated or bloated.

Most importantly, it’s very quick and easy to use. Start the app and you’re directly in camera mode. Scanbot can be configured to operate automatically from here. The app then identifies the document you want to scan, snaps a photo of it and then edits it to correct blur, perspective and colors. It can even automatically upload the file to Dropbox, iCloud, Evernote or your choice of cloud storage. No buttons pushed.
