  • Another Indispensable PDF App

    I love working in PDF. A huge part of my workflow is done in PDF format. For a long time, I stubbornly refused to buy a scanning app because I believed the quality wouldn’t match the quality of PDF from a desktop scanner - contempt prior to investigation. This app scans box top serial numbers, product keys, email, etc., from your camera into PDF. They’ve built in some very smart processing that converts your photos into high quality, readable PDF. I was wrong about the lack of quality vs desktop scanners. While it’s true that not 100% of my Adobe Scan files are “desktop scanner” quality, I have a very high standard for readable documentation and I’m impressed with the quality of the PDF generated by Adobe Scan and the app’s versatility. There’s very cool function that allows Adobe Scan to find potential PDF from your photo collection, (eg receipts, serial numbers, etc.). Nice! I know the serious privacy people won’t like that. I respect that. I like that time saving feature tho. I’m very satisfied with Adobe Scan. If you’re a power PDF user - you know who you are - you’ll be happy with this app.

  • Finally, success!

    By mamaTony
    Finally a successful scan program that works well enough to use! This may be the third document scan app I have tried, and the only one I will not be deleting. Not 5 ⭐️s because the most recent scan of a 3 paragraphed letter has been identified as a 'business card' ~ I'll look into that; however, the majority have been properly labeled. Well worth the 4⭐️rating, thus far.
  • Excellent!
