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.

The scan quality and control looks very good. Problem is that there seems to be absolutely no ability to organize and store the files after taking the pictures. No folders, no labels! This is a huge problem! I purchased the pro version hoping this would be included but apparently it's not! Also it is pretty slow when capturing and processing images; it would take very long to capture a booklet or even a research paper... But this is secondary...As a side note, ocr is practically worthless.

Hey Lawrence, sorry to hear you are not satisfied with the app. We are working on adding more organizational features to the Android version of Scanbot. As to the capturing speed, this is usually dependent on your device, and we can offer more support for this issue as well as OCR if you send us a support request through the app. Best, Lucas

Quality drop since recent update. The scan is also now doing a poor job reoriantating the scan. The words look warped on the edges. It appears I'm not the only one experiencing problems.. hope they find a fix since I have purchased the pro version. The words, "If it ain't broke don't fix it" come to mind when using this app now. They should've left things alone. It was almost flawless and a pleasure to use. I would pay 3x's as much for the previous version if I can get it back.

I used to LOVE this app since it really is user-friendly and creates nice scans if you really just need a mobile scanner, but after the update I can't keep my free account. It is basically making it so you have to pay for the services. I get to the new screen to subscribe to an email list and get an error. I've tried several times to uninstall and reinstall and nothing has been working. Edit: Fixed the problem - they are super responsive and friendly!
