SwiftScan values your privacy. We will never store or save your documents, or use them for any purpose. All document related activity happens on your device, or with the cloud backup provider you choose.

SwiftScan uses the most advanced scanning technology in its scanner app. Scans start at 200 dpi, premium quality comparable to desktop scanners. Various color modes, auto-optimization and blur-reduction help you to get the most out of your scans.

SwiftScan is blazingly fast and incredibly easy. Hold your iPhone over any document, receipt, whiteboard or QR code to scan and save it as a PDF or JPG quickly. The edges of the document are automatically identified so that only the document itself is scanned. It captures the best possible image in the perfect moment.

SwiftScan works with any type of document, from paper documents to business cards, QR codes, barcodes, notes, even whiteboards or post-its. Instantly scan QR codes to save a business card, show a location, open a website or connect to a WiFi network.

UPDATE: Still love this app as my go to scanner. But needs to add passcode or biometrics to lock access (as on iOS version)! Overall a great app. What I'd like to see is that the camera can be controlled to manually take picture. The app will often scan page before I have a chance to align the page, forcing me to take repeated photos of page before its correct. (UPDATE: Changed to 5 stars, based on feedback from developer. Manual picture does indeed work well.)

Edit: Updated review, I have the paid version and this app now shows ads. Will be replacing it. Old review: Good app, some annoying parts. I don't know what camera it's using (phone has 3) but it can't get all of a document in focus at once. It also doesn't allow me to select a different camera. It has a very annoying, loud, and unmutable sound when you tap to focus which wasn't there in the past. Even with all audio on my phone muted, it plays this annoying sound.

I've changed this from a five star rating. Scanbot used to work flawlessly, fast in focus. A few years ago the speed went away and now I have to hold the phone over the document for a very long time while it finally gets a focus and takes a picture. And just lately it won't focus at all and it saves a blurred document that is useless. Uninstalling, moving on.
