MDScan is a mobile doc scanner that allows you to scan any type of document using your phone camera. This could be receipts, text pages, coupons, posters, magazine articles, invoices, pictures, and any printed documents.

How does it work?

1. Take a picture with your camera
2. Choose an editing option (you can select “unenhanced”)
3. Easily adjust the scan area using the 4 borders on the page
4. Confirm the scan to the set dimensions (ready presets available)
5. Choose filters to enhance the quality (optional)
6. Save and Export into a PDF or JPG
7. Share on Social Media, Email, Cloud Servers

More detailed information:

This mobile scanner is perfect to use on the go - anywhere and anytime. With a variety of presets, MDScan guarantees great experience and its automatized functions are suitable for the busiest users looking to scan PDF documents with their mobile device’s camera. If you are looking for a mobile scanning application that automatically detects borders, corrects distortion, and equalizes brightness to create clear, legible documents, you are definitely on the right page.

Speaking of great user experience and automatic functions, the MDScan integrates seamlessly with cloud storage services such as Google Drive and Dropbox. In addition, you can send your scanned documents with email services, Facebook (Messenger), Twitter, and other apps if installed on your device.

This scanner app shines in terms of uploading but has no second when it comes to converting pictures taken from your phone's camera into legitimate documents you can use for business purposes.

With the Mobile Doc Scanner (MDScan) + OCR, you can now add multiple pages easier than ever. Whenever you want to scan a new page, you just need to press the caption button and you’re all set! All of the scanned documents and pages are stored and available under the “My Scans” field.

You can also try the Batch mode, which allows you to scan multiple pages within seconds! There is a feature called “Process page laters (spy mode)” that allows you to scan as many documents as you want to without facing any processing delays.

Of course, you can work with a photo or document that is already saved in your file system. Whether a PDF file or a regular picture, you can use the same editing options as if you just scanned a picture with your camera.

Another great feature this document scanner app offers is OCR (Optical Character Recognition) which stands for the electronic conversion of images of typed, handwritten or printed text into machine-encoded text. Whether scanned from a PDF file or a photo you just took, this new version of Mobile Doc Scanner (MDScan) + OCR guarantees fast performance, user-friendly interface, and professional results.

Let’s sum up what you get downloading the MDScan:

* Convert any image into a PDF format.
* Document edge detection and perspective correction.
* Improved image quality
* Quick scan and multi-page documents
* Share easily and upload instantly
* Money-back guarantee

User satisfaction is our main goal and if you have any questions or suggestions on how we can improve the Mobile Doc Scanner (MDScan) + OCR, contact us at our support email. We do our best to respond as soon as possible!

I have used this program for many years and have seen different updates come through seamlessly. It's a great App. I can't sort two things out and need your help. 1. Each time I need to use the full version it takes me to Google Play where I have to hit play. Is there a need for this extra step? 2. I moved from a Galaxy S8 to 9+ last year and haven't been able to move my scans over. Could you help me with this transfer? Thanks. William

Great for scanning letters, invoices, etc but fiddly getting the edges right ... it doesn't detect them properly and you have to fiddle moving my balls around. Ooh. The pdf reduction is great and good quality so you don't end up with 5 mb pdfs of just images. The method to do this is convoluted and hidden though. The template part is also stuff of Wizards and the app isn't helpful in this area. The OCR send tucked away too. Very little ads which is to be applauded. Worth buying just for that.

This is one of the best 'scan' apps I have used so far. It's small can export to PDF and jpg or share it with other apps or save it locally. Comparing with other products MDScan does a really good job in organizing. You are not forced to sync to cloud. You can also rearrange pages in a multipage document and edit them. 2 things though that I would like to be improved. 1.) More editing options 2.) Bit more accurate edge detection. I purchased MDScan and have no regrets and recommend it to anyone
