    When I tried to create folder to store scans to SD -scanbot required all permissions including access to body sensors, camera, microphone, calendar, etc. Really? Why? My Reddit scanner on iPhone worked perfectly without accessing anything. Instant reason to distrust and delete. Full Review

    Scan and compile multiple pages into a clean .pdf document. The automatic camera operation works well and lets you scan multiple pages quickly and efficiently. I use it at tax time and for other 'adulting' tasks. I needed it when refinancing. Tested a few and this one came out on top for it's speed and ease of use. Full Review

    Mark Howell Published date: February 3, 2018

    I was looking for a document scanner that could quickly create a document scan with the least amount of app navigation effort as possible and just as quickly get out of my way—because who really wants to deal with a messy and confusing document scanner app UI? Scanbot is very simple on the surface and gets the job done with ease. After taking a scan, you can simply tap save and exit. It's just that simple. Of course there are other options you can perform if you want, but for me, all I want is to get in and out as quickly as possible. The most important features to me, however, is that Scanbot automatically transfers my scanned documents directly to my FreeNAS server via SFTP then deletes the original from my phone afterwards. Scanbot does this perfectly! While other document scan apps may very well accomplish this, I simply love the simplicity to which Scanbot takes care of this task. So why would I only give Scanbot four stars? The reason is a glaring lack of public key encryption for SFTP. Without this option I am forced to make a compromise in the security of my home server to use Scanbot. If public key is added to the SFTP client, Scanbot will truly be a five-star app! Full Review

    Scanning is good, OCR is horrible, especially if the text is in Swedish. It doesn't recognise the special characters at all, åäö, and replaces them with some random junk. The fact that it does not recognise the language means it can't correct even the most basic OCR errors. Full Review

    The competitors are much better at framing, with this you need to be really stable and wait for the camera to get the paper correctly framed before you take the picture. Annoying, I just want to click and forget. Full Review

    Scans so much better than Google drive scan with accurate, near frustration-free scanning. Only issue so far is that some documents don't want to upload for some reason. Spent two hours waiting for "processing". Full Review

    I had this app a few months ago and I found it to be incompatible with my device and uninstalled it. A couple days ago I was browsing through my app history and noticed several updates since then so I tried it again and it's every bit as bad as before, it's gone for good to me, BYE BYE Full Review

    The app combines great design in what it can do with flexibility on what it can be applied. Document and image scanning is a useful tool and there are plenty of mediocre examples, but Scanbot has made a great one. Full Review

    Got rid of Camscanner and am now using this great app along with Syncthing to send documents to my computer. On the computer I use Tagspaces to tag and organize files. I am glad this is not a paid subscription. My setup is now free to use and allows me to host my own data without depending on a third party provider. Full Review

    It kept finding phantom barcodes on a document I was trying to scan. Also, every time I tried using the flash, it would automatically cut off the light right before it snapped the pic which resulted in an extremely dark scan. Full Review
