I cannot stress how amazing this app is and also simple to use! The scanning is second to none, and today it was actually needed as part of my professional life. I’ve had to work from home this past week, and I was required to scan and then in a multi-page document. Do I drive 40 minutes to work just to use the scanner? Nope! Fired this up on my iPhone 13 Pro, scanned the pages, it put them together on a PDF with a simple button press, and I sent it as an email. That was that. Yes, there are other apps that scan out there and do similar things, but none bring it together like this! Easy to understand and navigate, no ads (but you can, and should, donate!), and there when you need it! There is no reason to NOT have this on your phone!

Great app highly recommended

Does exactly what it says. It does produces PDFs that are manageable in size. Offers password protection, and immediate sharing via various methods.

Amazing user experience

One of the things I love about QuickScan is the lightweight and “default iOS” feel it has to it - it’s so snappy compared to any other scanning app out there! Keep up the awesome work, and I look forward to future updates!

QuickScan Is An Excellent App!

iPhone 12 Pro, iOS 14.7.1 - I was happy with my scanner app and was not looking for a new scanner app but I’m glad I found QuickScan. This app is excellent in every way. The app is small in file size, produces excellent quality scans, is intuitively laid out, is full featured, and just works without any messing around. The developer impresses me as an honest person that put their heart and soul into this app. I was so impressed with this app that I purchased the developer a “book” within 30 minutes of downloading this app. My thanks to the developer for a well thought out app that is simple to use and works great. Job well done!

Fantastic APP!

The best free APP available. Including OCR and providing high quality PDF, and still keeping the size of the files low. Automatic scanning and adjusting - love it!

Outstanding - best scanner app

I have tried all the scanner apps over the last year. Each one had something missing. This app does everything I need including OCR and automatic upload to location of my choice. The developer is very responsive if you have any questions. Highly recommended

Fast easy and simple

Better than many other apps from large companies.. Simple to use and easy to get very clear images and scans. Editing is also a breeze.

Easy and works

It fixes any parallax issues, auto crops, and saves to pdf. I can export to Google Drive and it has no ads. It’s great!

I’ve only had it for a couple of hours but it works so well. Airdropped it onto my laptop and can search for words in the documents which is very handy. Great.

Paperless. Efficiently.

Save huge amounts of time thanks to QuickScan speed, ease of use, and automation functionalities. Get rid of paper easily.

Automation as your assistant.

QuickScan can be a very efficient personal assistant. Thanks to its smart automation features, it's never been easier to scan and file documents.

Thanks to widgets/shortcuts, you can even configure different triggers for scanning. Each trigger is associated to an Export Favorite that will apply preconfigured settings and destination, when you are done scanning. Wow! Filed, automatically, in seconds.

You are in control.

Everything happens locally, on your device. You control & configure everything that happens. Your documents remain private thanks to the abscence of data collection. Need more security? You can set a password on the exported PDF. That's not all: Face ID / Touch ID protection of QuickScan is also possible, to ensure that only you can access your documents.
