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 use to like this app. But the more I use the more useless it becomes. Auto uploading to OneDrive may or may not work. Totally random. Use the three button to force it to resymc with OneDrive and it doesn't upload the files with the new names. Camera is good for three photos and then the app can no longer operate the camera. You have to give it to close and restart the app. And it will be good for three more. During this, it may or may not save the photos you already took. I'm beyond irritated.

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

MDS is better than others tried. OCR is quite fast, accurate, works offline but text format is loose. Scan renaming is frustrating and stays only in the app. Exporting the scans adds words "Page #" to the end forcing renaming a 2nd+ time. Few renaming templates and not customizable. App has folders but they are in the awkward to access App Data folder. Export scans to internal or external storage but only one at a time and not in the app folder structure. Painful. Developer is in Russia! Scary.

Page # is added only in case of JPEG export, this is necessary for a multi-page document. Folders are intended only for managing scans within the application, and not for exporting. To export multiple scans, switch to edit mode and select multiple scans. If you have questions, please use the Email to support command in the menu on the start screen.
