"Scanbot is a great application."

What do you like best?

I love how clearly Scanbot allows dental paperwork to be scanned in without the use of a scanner. When our scanner is down, we use this app and it works great. It is quick and efficient.

What do you dislike?

I do not dislike a lot about Scanbot, but I wish there was an easier way to have documents that were scanned through phone exported to the work computer. Through the work computer is how we link documents and from the application, we need to send everything that is scanned to our emails in order to get it onto the computer.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There is no advice that I would suggest.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The problems I have realized that it is sometimes hard to get scanned documents from the application to the computer, because we need to send it through email. The patience is worth it though, because the quality of the scans are great and it is a great alternative when the scanner is malfunctioning.

"A great scan app for ios?"

What do you like best?

I'm able to save PDFs to any cloud based storage applications like Dropbox, iCloud and Google Drive.

The OCR feature and the search with scan is great.

What do you dislike?

The price to get all the features is quite high at $8. There are other apps for free.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Scanbot is a great mobile app. Is very stable and doesn't crash. It integrates with a myriad of cloud storage services like dropbox, one drive, google drive, slack and evernote etc. It has multi-page support for document scans and documents can be shared as PDFs. You can also fax documents. Unfortunately you need credits for that which cost around $0.30 to $0.50 on average.

It has a great algorithm to detect the edges of sheet and correct for any off-angle shots.

You can feel comfortable with the security it provides. The pro version integrates with touch id or face id to keep your files secure and from prying eyes.

The OCR feature is great. It allows you to search for text inside the pdf that were just scanned. It also has a feature called smart scan which allows you to use save templates to easily safe your scans.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Scan forms after signature from engineers, managers, etc.

"Great app, if it worked all the time."

What do you like best?

Scanbot helps take pictures of documents and stitch them together with minimal lense distortion.

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, Scanbot does not always work. Sometimes it cannot understand the area I am attempting to scan.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try the free version and if it works for you, the upgrade is worth it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I don't have a scanner with me when I am on the go, but I can quickly get a usable scan with Scanbot so that I can send a copy of the document to my supervisor.

"An excellent scan app for iPhone"

What do you like best?

Scanbot automatically crops all scans to the edges of the paper, instead of just taking a photo.

What do you dislike?

I wish it was easier to send scans directly to a printer, to use as a ‘xerox’ function.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I no longer have a full size scanner in my office, since my phone can do the same thing!
