Poor Scan Quality The images I take with my phone camera are much better than the images the scanner tool takes for Droid DNA. The corner selection tool is a great idea but it has yet to select the correct corners automatically and the manual corner selection is finiky. Lastly, the automatic filters leave much hand written text illegible. Alltogether, it is better to take a picture of the document from my phone camera, send it to myself (or auto sync with Dropbox) and edit the image on my PC.
Still no option to disable camera sound I'll sound like a broken record, but version 2.1 still doesn't have an option to mute the camera sound as far as I can see ... despite what the update information says. Ok, seems that not naming a document triggers the auto name generation. Would be nice to have a better documentation of new features. Bug: Changing phone rotation while viewing a document makes the view disappear.
This app needs some fixing. The fine tuning crop tool needs some serious calibrating. It feels like the app is fighting with me when trying to crop a page. It'll either over or under extend the point I'd like to trim....App hasn't been updated in almost 2 yrs. You get 1 star until you fix your app.
Excellent but needs some improvements They're needs to be a setting that allows you to have the flash on by default, or at least a setting that applies it to each scanning session. Right now, if you want to scan multiple documents, you must turn the flash on for each one. A default save location would also be a very nice feature/setting. Other than that, incredible scanning app. I have the pro version, but even with the free version, the app corrects for any distortion caused by a tilt of the camera. Highly recommend.
Amazing app to create PDFs This app is excellent and has made it extremely easy to create PDFs while i am away from my computer and traveling out in the field. I paid 4.99 for it and it was well worth it. My only complaint is the camera feature is quite fuzzy. Does not take crisp pictures. However, i heard that was fixed in version 2.0
My travel expense receipt powerhouse I really like Handy Scanner Pro. I've used it for about a year primarily to help me deal with all my travel receipts. It works really well for that. When I teach courses, I take snapshots of the flipchart pages I draw/write and turn them into good-quality PDFs that my students can take with them. The B&W Print-Ready filter works great for that, avoiding large (3 MB) file sizes. Recommended.
