Scanning documents works great! But, trying to retrieve saved documents is nearly impossible. Even searching for them when they've been saved to my device is ridiculous and nearly impossible!!! Adobe Scan has been around for years, and they still haven't made it easy to retrieve and read or send documents saved to a device. Should be able to just search, find, and do what you want with it.

Adobe Scan, what a life saver. This app is AWESOME!! My bf & I drove all around Atlantic City trying to find a place to fax/scan etc.. and it was Sunday. Anyhow this app allows me to take a picture and save/send so it doesn't look like it was a picture taken. (Turns print out into document online) 😊. I also think it allows me to edit the document and does all the difficult things automatically. Thank u Adobe for making life easier

This is the best scanning & OCR app I have ever used! It does most actions for you automatically. This app can scan pretty much anything. I just point the camer at the document, receipt, or board and it finds the edges for me automatically. I can clean up, fix, and enhance my scans and even saves files in multiple formats. There are different filters options and editing tools like, crop, rotate, and removing marks, creases, or stains. I can also save and export scans. Best scanning app ever!
