About this app

TurboScan is a one time cost for life! TurboScan turns your phone into a full-featured and powerful multipage scanner for documents, receipts, notes, whiteboards, photos, or other everyday text. With TurboScan, you can quickly scan your documents in high quality and store or send them as multipage PDF or JPEG files.

Note! You can scan and send up to three multipage documents with this free version.

TurboScan uses advanced fast algorithms to accurately detect document edges, straighten the documents (correct perspective), eliminate shadows and set a perfect contrast - black on white.

TurboScan boasts a powerful yet easy to use interface. Get instant one-tap brightness, rotation and color controls all on one screen!

TurboScan also offers SureScan, our proprietary scanning mode for sharper scans (especially useful in low-light conditions.) SureScan requires taking three pictures of the same document with the phone camera.

TurboScan's handy "Email to myself" feature lets you send documents to a predefined address, or even upload them to online storage sites like Dropbox, with a single tap.

All processing happens on your phone, and the confidentiality of your data is never compromised (no Internet connection needed.)

TurboScan features:
• Automatic document edge detection and perspective correction
• SureScan mode for very sharp scans
• Ultra-fast processing (under 3 seconds per page)
• Document naming, storage inside the app and search
• Multipage editing: add, reorder, and delete pages
• Copy pages between stored scans
• “Email to myself” feature for quick emails
• Email document as PDF, JPEG or PNG, or save to camera roll
• Arrange multiple receipts or business cards on a PDF page
• Open PDFs or JPEGs in other apps like the free Dropbox app (or Evernote, GoogleDrive, OneDrive app, etc) to send to clouds, or fax apps
• Printing via Cloud Print or other print apps
• Instant one-tap brightness, rotation, and color controls
• Compact attachments with adjustable size

Tips on scanning
• Make sure your document is flat and well lit.
• For best edge detection, include some margin around your document while shooting.
• Use flash in low light conditions, but avoid glare with glossy documents.
• If your flash over-saturates images or makes them blurry, please change the flash option in app Settings

Incredible, well worth the price of the full version, I use it at least once a week. super helpful for artists who prefer to sketch/draw by hand, much easier to use this scanner than to upload to photoshop and manipulate. Also super helpful for students who need to scan textbooks, packets, or other assignments. The ability to email, convert to jpg, or convert to pdf straight from the app is a life saver. Would like to see png/transparency options included in future updates. Highly recommend!

Takes several tries and at least 10 minutes to receive the scanned document after emailing it. Not happy about paying for something that hardly works. UPDATED 06/25/19: I have figured this app out. I only take and send 1 page at a time, much faster this way. Also, after emailing it once, I wait about 30 seconds, then go to email it once more. Seconds after you pretend to email a 2nd time, it will show up in your inbox. You can send the 2nd email but you will only receive 1.

Updating to emphasize my review of a year ago. I've been using this app to scan documents for years, and it's awesome. The 3x feature allows you to get really accurate scans, or you can opt to go more quickly. The process for touching up the scans is also great and helps when scanning documents that are oddly shaped, have curled edges, and so forth, and allows you to make corrections when you are not able to hold your camera perfectly parallel to the surface being scanned.
