The app is probably one of the best as it relates to scanning, modifying, filling and merging multiple file types into PDFs. Some of The functions are less than intuitive and need to be addressed in whenever the next update is. It's worth paying for the app if it's used regularly but if it's a one-off deal then there's plenty of free apps that do the same thing. I would definitely recommend it for any professional that does work off of their mobile device. One account integrates with PC as wel

I have tried several scanners for my tablet and all were disappointing in various ways; the Adobe Scan: PDF Scanner is the only one that truly works. It has all of the features, is easy to use and accurate. I have used Adobe products all of the way back to PageMaker and forward through all if the top line professional products including InDesign. I should have started with Adobe Scan and not bothered with the others.

The only way I have found to take any picture online or in person (scan it into the app), and be able to crop, clean up, alter, resize for printing (!!!), and save as a PDF - all for free, and all from my phone! This has been an absolute godsend! I am so glad to have found this app... it has helped me do so many things that otherwise wouldn't have been something possible for me.... Great job!
