Sometimes it feels as though office equipment can sense when you’re in a hurry. You need a digital copy of a document, and your scanner picks that time to scan only a quarter page or reduce your print’s shading to the point that it looks like a ghost.

When you need a high-quality scan, fussing with hardware is probably the last thing you want to deal with. But what if you could scan documents using your iPhone? iScanner does just that, turning your trusty smartphone into a full-featured document scanner that’s easy to use and produces crystal-clear results.

Plus, lifetime iScanner subscriptions are available for just $39.99 (regularly $199) for a limited time.

iPhone scanner app

Unlike your beloved iPhone, printers and scanners routinely top the list of most-hated office equipment. Avoid that with iScanner, an app that puts your beloved iPhone’s incredible camera to work

iScanner lets your iPhone scan contacts, paper notes, books and any other document you can think of. And using it is as simple as taking a picture: Just open the app, point and shoot. That’s it!

Plus, iScanner helps you align your camera for optimal scan quality. No more shoving a whole book onto a scanning surface when you can snap a picture of the page.

Once you’ve scanned your document, you can edit, sign, add stamps or store the file. iScanner keeps scans as individual files or multipage PDFs or JPEGs, which you can share in a few clicks. It’s especially valuable for business owners who don’t want to shell out for more pricey office equipment.

“I am using it for scanning the documents of my small business,” one user wrote. “Scans are very detailed and precise, it is easy to use and has all features one can imagine.”

Keeping a scanner in your pocket is handy, but that’s not all iScanner can do. The app reads QR codes, counts similar objects, calculates room area, and does math for you. Students who need a quick answer to a handwritten math problem can whip out their iPhones, point at the arithmetic, and rejoice!
