I love Adobe scan. Hands down its the best and easiest app I have used for scanning documents into PDF. The free version is good enough because all the things the premium version offers you can do by just exporting the pdf to your computer. It's good for books, paper size documents, ID's, business cards, etc. It let's you edit the image with lots of options like cropping, filters, or erasing. You can save to your phone, export it, and attach it to emails or text messages.

I've tried several scanning apps and this one has been the best so far. It automatically finds the edges, attempts to take image in steady state automatically, then produces a clear color scan of the document. Best image quality out of all of them. Documents can easily be saved wherever you like, emailed, password protected, fill & sign features with paid version. Perfect for what I need!

I read the app's reviews and multiple accounts of issues with color, cropping and finding location of scanned document on phone. I experienced none of these yet i do believe reviewers were truthful in having those issues. Maybe app's success depends on phone's manufacturer brand? Just guessing. I have a samsung A01. There are color outcome options, cropping/editing, save to phone, save as jpeg and move to desired location on phone. I gave 4 stars b/c i agree with others $9.99 a month too much
