Very ez I use it to scan all of my receipts into my Dropbox. Very easy.

Great tool Dealing with various types of documents for a newsletter this is a very useful tool to avoid wasted time. Especially when used with Adobe Acrobat with OCR.

Love this app I have had this for a long time, and use it a good bit. It is a great app for scanning stuff into your phone, and I can't recall ever having problems with it.

Great for tracking expenses This app is perfect for my small business in tracking meal and miscellaneous expenses. That I can upload directly to Google Drive is a great bonus!

Good, but could be better Pros 1) works ok with black and white text (although grayscale could be better) Cons 1) doesn't handle multiple colors well (e.g. whiteboard) 2) crop checkmark gets in the way of being able to crop the lower righthand corner in portrait mode, forcing you to use landscape mode 3) when taking a picture using the built-in camera button, it doesn't have an auto-focus box to demonstrate that the picture will be in focus (note the older version used to have this)

Rascal's Mom Does everything I want it to do.

Very useful Kinda OC in backing up certain documents, so I thought I'd try this. Sure you can take pics of documents with your native camera app, but this app simplifies things. No complaints.

Can't pick folder that you want to scan to.. Why can't I pick the Google Drive folder that I want to scan to.

Amazing One of my most used apps

Best scanner A really good app for scanning pages

Extremely useful Very good app, does what it says, and does it well

Simple and easy

I hope can improve I love you apps,but need to improve,cos I face a problem that was when I scan a document it only save inside my phone or SD card and if one or both have problem everything gone. This is my case when I scan alot impotant document at my phone but dun know why my phone self re-format itself and all document gone. So can u make ur apps have clound and my document upload there. If nxt update u can have clound for ur custermer I will give u 5☆☆☆☆☆

Nice app but i suggest that saved documents can be restored on this same app when installed in other devices.

Congratulation!!! Nice job. You might do an update so we could magnify corners to do better crops. Thank you!!!

Not bad but Missing a couple of obvious things like zooming corners when cropping and manual adjustment when enhancing a scan. Over all not bad. Would really appreciate an automatic "send to" feature as apposed having to manually do it the way it is now.

Genius Scan Hi, wonderful app this. Very happy with it. Turn photos into scans and send into the office. Magic.

Functional Works pretty well for what it is. My only issue is when when using the app to send a scan it often takes two or three attempts to work. Still does this on my Nexus 5.

Clean and simple I use this a lot for business receipts. Results in a nice, clean, small file size pdf. Way easier than anything else.

Genius Scan Easy to use, well thought out. Love it!

Samsung Tab Would give 5* if I could sync stuff between my devices. .... That would make this app awesome!!

I LOVE THIS APP! Helps me with timesheets, reports, etc for work without being chained to a computer or laptop. All I need is my smartphone!

Ughhh...... Bought the upgraded version to only find out you cannot attach to godaddy email accounts.......... something needs to be fixed...... quick

Very good !!! Love this tool !!! One of my best AP. I have been using all the time. I scan everything, including my own paperbooks that I wanna read later, when I am not home or at work.

Good app Use it occasionally but it has never failed me on my various tablets or moto x

Good contrast settings but no auto crop. Prefer camscanner

Planned to Use with OneNote: Disappointed Scans are sent to OneNote as PDF attachment. I was hoping to scan documents directly into OneNote, OCR as editable and searchable. Not so. Tried embedding PDF into a note, OCR doesn't work. Useless for my application.

Useful Like they say a scanner in your pocket.

Flexible & convenient The only improvement I want is to let me position the buttons from left to right & vice versa at the enhancement screen. Keep the great products coming!

Almost perfect Pros: Reasonable special permissions requirements. In-app image acquisition. Four-point post-scan adjustment for rectangular pages. Conversion to color/b&w processing. Good intuitive interface. Good document listing. Dropbox connectivity. Good sharing capability (to email, internal memory etc.) One-time payment (not a monthly subscription) (If I missed anything, email them. They are prompt.). Update: still my go-to phone scanner.

Awesome Great little app for both ipad and android. Very handy when I'm taking pics of my invoices to send to customers or cutting decals from a picture to show to my car bodyworks guy

Totally a fan! Simple and does everything I need it to.

Great Nice app, works with my Galaxy Note 4. One request is to auto upload to OneDrive. That would make me give 5 stars!

Very practical Hopefully there will be more enhancements.

Handy Very efficient and easy to use. Highly recommended.

the Standard by which all others will be judged. if they keep it utilitarian and don't start a social media revolution.

Love it Easy way to scan and send it to my evernote.

i buy it, why i get the message "not licensed"? i buy it, why i get the message "not licensed"?

Indispensable!!!! Use it almost every day. I take pics of jobs and forms and able to turn them into pdf's and combine them into one document. Awesome app. Download it and pay the miniscule amount it costs.

Excellent quick PDF's on the go Excellent for creating quick PDF's on the go. Use it at work all the time.

Keeps getting better I've been using this app to scan receipts for a few years and I love the progression of it. The UI improvements and work flow improvements have been great. Well done!

Can't remember the last time I used the scanner. So easy to keep track of receipts for expense reports along the way by adding the individual scans to the document.

Genius Scan Works great, converts to colour pdf, easy to use.

Saves me hours Use it for managing expenses, a messy and fiddly process but gscan makes life easier!

Beautiful! Cooler than the frozen food section

All my scans did not go through. It also started to freeze my phone.

Can't live without it!!! Free version is great but the paid version has no peer: the greatest mobile document processor ever.

Absolutely Great This app comes in handy more times than I can count

Great app I use this for all receipts

Very useful I use this app to scan all my kids' artwork. Easy to use, and I like all the export options.

Genius Scan is great! I use it for documents...

Handy for receipts I use it every week and it works great!

A must for scanning on the go

Quick and easy A great app that does what it says it will do.

Awesome app for work

Great Scanner I find the app to be very easy to use and provides me with great quality scans. Great work by the developers!

Excellent. Very useful in all kinds of situations. For cordcutters, a great way to get rid of paper. Would love to MMS support.

I want to pay my money back I Coudnt share docs to gallery or device storage. First case I get app error and the second app stopped

Greatest app This expedites business for me on the road daily. I never have a problem with it. I tell people about it all the time.

Love this app This app makes my life easier. Love it!

Easy Easy to use no issues

This has become my "go-to" app for scanning receipts, documents, etc.... I use it nearly every day without fail. Genius Scan+ almost always performs a great scan, nearly perfect cropping and image enhancement so I rarely have to retake the picture. The integration with my Evernote account is quite adequate. Nicely Done, Grizzly Labs!.

Great APP! Would give 5 Stars if it had OCR!

New version works well, athough can't migrate docs between phones Good scanner app with the functions you need. The only problem is that I couldn't migrate my scans between to phones. Otherwise 5 stars.

A great tool. Will be a valuable app, but the email forwarding function doesn't appear to work. Using HTC MAGIC One.

The best scanned I have found It is great and what ever one needs

Great Works just as advertised and all of my pictures look great and are easily shared and saved to my devices

Great App and Support! I bought this app when it was first introduced. It was great then and with updates is even better now. The guys at Grizzly Labs have provided wonderful support and fast communication since inception. Scan on!

Best of the lot. It's made my life much easier.

Great scanner! Works simply and easily. Scan, crop, send to Dropbox, and attach to my software. All done! No paper receipts for 2016!!!

Works very well Saves time getting receipts into Box files.

Great App Works super well for what I need it.. As a consultant I hoped that you can create a file name it and directly scan to it... Great job guys.

Great App. Use it all the time

Genius scan I love it. Easy to use. It is my portable scanner

Genius Scan + Scanning App. A really fine app - makes life so much easier

Very helpful Request: could you add a setting that would permit for changing the syntax of the automatic file name creation? It would be very helpful. Other than that, great app!

Update Works better. But still need a corner magnifier for better crops.

RE:Bug , submitted Can you tell me how to fix camera or submit bug ? Note 4 , CM 12.nightly

Best app ever The app is incredible! Take a pic of a doc, it turns it into a pdf. To easy.

Best document scanning app I have found Use it daily. Is great for anyone who wants a truly mobile office.

Great app Works very well for quick snap and sending of documents.


nice and very useful app.

Rascal's Mom Does everything I want it to do.

One of my favourite apps

Helps to go paperless It accepts photos from your gallery, so you can quickly snap pictures with your camera and organize them into PDFs later. The post-processing is very effective at increasing the readability of even mediocre pictures.

Useful tool to have on hand when I need a quick legible copy of a document. Wish it would let me tap in the center of the screen, though, like I'm used to when taking photos.

Refund I've had this app on my iPhone forever to annotate and organize PDF receipts and scanned receipts for expense reports. I am glad to see it on Android and seriously couldn't live without this thing!

Great app that I use frequently. I do notice that on my new Galaxy S5, that it doesn't automatically crop as well as it did on my S3.

My favorite scanning app (receipts, bills, etc.) Update: earlier this year I submitted the following request: could you add a setting that would permit for changing the syntax of the automatic file name creation? Other than that, great app! -- they didn't do it but changed the syntax to YYYY-MM-DD which is what I needed. Thank you!

Bit pricey for the pro version but works very well. Ability to move the handles using the sides not just the corners (like Microsoft's offering) is the killer feature. On my home screen for a reason and used every day to scan receipts to the cloud for the accountant. [May 2016] The addition of custom naming conventions is brilliant and works flawlessly and the magnifying glass is very clever. Worth every cent.

Excellent investment (= Quality scanner with the added convenience of forwarding copies of digital docs to a default email provider. After using this app for several years, I'm glad to see its development is ongoing. Create & share legible, pro grade PDF and docs scans easily. This app evolves with each Android iteration - big thanks to the Developers for ensuring Genius Scan+ stays relevant!

Update At least a corner magnifier for better crops!

Meh This is supposed to be the best scanner application on Android according to many reviews. I come from iOS and I promise this is nothing in comparison to apps like Scanner Pro. The workflow is all wrong and I feel like functionality is missing everywhere. Just an example: why can't one save in grayscale instead of b/w? In my experience it is much more readable. If the makers only checked Scanner Pro and tried to gracefully copy most of its features this would become a great app and worth the (same) money.

Great app This is been my go-to scanning app for the last 2 years!

Digitizing journals This app is by far one of the best when scanning a bulk load of documents

love it really good, the best scan app

Unexplained location permission. I have lowered my rating due to no explanation of the location permission request.

Great Scanner App Does everything I need and easy to upload for storage!

I used Genius Scan free on my Samsung S5. It created crisp, readable scans of long grocery receipts. When I switched to an LG K7, I purchased Genius Scan+. No matter what settings I used, I could not get a focused scan. The help menu suggested I test the camera to see if the image was still fuzzy. Well, the camera took a better image than Genius Scan. Not only that, the camera image used less space than the scan. I should have tested the free version on the new device before paying for the full version because THIS DOESN'T WORK WITH ALL DEVICES!

Right now it's great! Didn't use it for quite some time... There were some ui improvements that now make it really good tool. I can get rid of my old canon scanner that the vendor didn't want to update drivers for almost 5 yrs :)

Great with a few quirks I love the ease and accuracy of this app. There are a few minor quirks (such as 2 layers of saving), but can't do much without this tool on my phone

First of all, its NOT a scanner...its a fancy camera that crops automatically and such. I was hoping you could turn your phone into a scanner that by holding down a button and slowly moving your phone across the document it would scan across the doc and present a scanned doc to your phone. It does not... you take a picture of the doc and it crops and sizes it...not the same as a scanner. My bad for NOT doing more research on it before buying it... Would rather have my money back...

Great app Perfect on Samsung Galaxy S4. Really useful, the plus version allows you to customise your default titles so you can come up with a filing system. It exports to email and other apps really easily. Definitely worth the few quid

Not bad, could do with some upgrading I just moved from an iPhone where I used Scanner Pro. This app feels like it's about 2 years behind Scanner Pro in development. Scanner Pro automatically recognises the page and takes the photo for page after page, you don't have to use the camera button, plus it is better at corner and edge recognition and then it alters the perspective perfectly so that you would swear the scan came off a scanner. I look forward to some great updates.

Needs OCR Slightly clunky. Workflow is a bit unclear. Needs OCR to be competitive.

love it l love this app. works great for my job, especially since this is how i get paid..... only issue how do i import my free version scans to my plus version... please help

Super bummed I bought this version on my iPhone, which came with genuis sign. I can't export anything from Dropbox either. It says there was an error. It defeats the purpose of buying the app. Maybe it's a bug that is affecting the s7 edge. Worked on my iPhone 5c, what gives?

Lacks customization and it's really expensive Otherwise it's very good, fast and simple with material design.

Best App for Business I can scan, tag, and add to cloud or print right from my phone. Makes life much easier, pay the money for Pro Version, one time expense, worth it.

Simply the best scanning app This app is the best app to scan your documents on the go. You can covert them to pdf or any format you like. Highly recommended for students such as myself.

Must have This is truly a must have product and I use it a lot to scan in important data that otherwise could get lost in the sea of paperwork in my life.

All is perfect except All I could ask is a way to backup and restore to another android device. Otherwise this is one way kool app! Well worth the price.

Update At least a corner magnifier for better crops!

Can't live without it!!! Free version is great but the paid version has no peer: the greatest mobile document processor ever. A veritable supertool. ?‼

User friendly - works great. I use it for the electronic submittal of my expense reports.

Great app! If you have to carry lots of paperwork around, this app is perfect for down sizing.

One of the greatest on the fly apps ever Wish I could add a half star

Genius scan+ Does everything I need to scan, organize and share documents

Great tool and easy to use!

Easy to use with excellent clarity! Easily my favorite and most used App!

Easy and fasy Title says it all

Great Very smooth app

Excellent Nothing to compare

Works great on my phone I'm very satisfied with how well this app is working on my phone. I can scan just about anything I want and send it to my other devices. In my experience the developer will go to great lengths to help you solve any problem that you might have.

Not often that a product actually gets BETTER after you buy it. They did it. Enough to make me come back and add to my already happy review. The last update added all the could ask for's.... Anything else that gets added in the future is just Icing on the cake ... Wow.. This is one way kool app! WELL worth the price! Best app on my phone. Update: Geez o'le pete!! they did it again! Now real time crop preview while scanning. wow. Best App on my device.

Still great, but... I recently spotted a star from 5 to 4. I can't seem to stop the orange overlay from appearing, and sometimes flickering as I scan an image. This happens even in Manual mode. Please fix... and the 5th star will return. Still hands down a great app though.

Excellent App Simply a must for business and personal use.

Good now with update I like that it has a one off payment to purchase. They took my feedback and made the app faster and better.

Prompt response I sent a bug report that the app would crash on my device when capturing images, and the developers released an update literally the next day. Love the devs

Easiest and feels safe SO happy that I can upload batch scans to onedrive, this is a dream for me! Never again will I lose scans after a phone reset, and I'm not forced to pay monthly like with camscanner! A dream come true!!

Great Scanning Since the update to introduce magic scan and easy cropping, this has become a great app to scan and upload to the cloud service of your choice.

This newest update sucks!! Completely ruined the cropping as now it doesn't crop at all and now I have to uninstall and reinstall before it'll even save the photo!! Just gives me the error repot "genius scan has stopped working."

My Right Hand! This app saves me time and reduces my stress for managing my non profit. Love it!

Best scanner so ever. nice and very useful app.

Oh no, what have you done! I've been using this app for years. Yes, there are some features that are missing, but the basic premise is that you snap, edit, save with good results. Used the update today and it made an "autosave and edit" of the complete image, which I had to then go back and edit. And the image quality is now worse. Oh no....

Woody, Batch Mode All my prayers have been answered. Batch mode recently added, and is faster than I expected. Can't ask for more lol

Auto scan is sweet Long time user, loving the newest update. It auto focuses, detects borders, and scans automatically now. Awesome.

Literally amazing Very FEW well-written pieces of software out there.... This is one of them.

Awesome Program! Still learning but wow! What a game changer!

Amazing app Best out there for documents

A near perfect app The application provides excellent features on an excellent price. The enhancements work very well and the angle correction is a pretty darn good feature too.

Easy to use .. but.. I have been using CamScanner for years. Need a way to send files into CamScanner. Ok tech support helped me. Explained that cam scanner needs jpg. I raised the grade. Now, we need batch converting.

All you need from a Scanner app

the best scanner I've used the only thing I miss is cloud sync in android app ... or at least I could not find it for an hour
