  • Great app

    By Marmite 61
    This is a great app
  • Best scanner

    By Ketan Joshi
    This is one of the best Apps for scanning
  • Great App indeed!!

    By ikko12
    Work very well. It is a very reliable app with many useful features!!
  • It takes time to crack it and I have not done it yet.

    By Ealingman
    It's not intuitive at all. I'm new to the app but it is not snap and save. Ice is atrocious, maybe I have not cracked it yet- you get what the problem is.
  • One of the 1st Apps I install on IOS devices

    By DPE
    This is a must install app for me. I use it everyday. Easy to use and great integration with iCloud for simple document management later in the day whilst on my Mac
  • Very useful app

    By Dau888
    I really like this app. It's simple to use and does most things well. I like how it is easy to changed scan items to black and white or greyscale to save memory space. It would be even better if I can change the name of the file during the editing process as opposed to coming out to the main menu. Also if we can have folders to store our PDFs, it would be a 5 star app.
  • Superb

  • Great for a paperless workflow

    By Ghfdsfhugff
    This app enables me to scan my paper invoices & receipts, I then export them to Dropbox to sync them across my devices. My accountant loves my paperless workflow :)
  • Getting better but still disappointing

    By UK guitar fan
    I’ve been using another app that does the same job. That app isn’t perfect and being a fan of PDFpen (on my iPhone, iPad and Mac) had great expectations for this app. The initial release was very disappointing - the scan quality was very poor compared to my other app, and wasn’t as easy to use as I expected. It also crashed a lot. The latest update is a big improvement - it detects page edges well and is probably nicer to use than my other app - but it still crashed. When I’m scanning documents I’m either at home with a lot to do, or I’m out and about and want to scan a document without taking up too much of someone else’s time. In either case, frequent crashes are enough to stop me using this app.
