If modern life has taught us anything, it’s that the more backups you have, the better off you are, especially if you’re going to school or learning new skills. The iScanner app for iOS makes it easy to back up anything on paper as a digital file, making it easy to edit and share.

The App Store’s No. 1 scanning app

Rated the No. 1 scanning app on the App Store after more than 80 million downloads, iScanner combines optical character recognition with machine learning on iOS devices. It can read print and handwriting and convert both into text that can be edited, searched, copied, shared, annotated and edited.

When you snap a document, iScanner uses advanced color correction and noise removal to generate a pristine copy. The app offers specialized modes for certain documents (like passports) to ensure the best possible image.

After scanning, you can edit and merge your scans with other documents just as you would with digital files. This can help ensure visa applications, financial reports and other sensitive materials are packaged correctly without wrangling through piles of paper.

iScanner supports PDF, JPG and TXT formats for easy sharing across devices and platforms, including iPhones, iPads, email and messaging apps.

iScanner also comes with a suite of quick-answer features. For example, a QR code scanner limits app switching and immediately opens links in print scans. iScanner’s measuring tools help you spot specific paper sizes, so your print job runs smoothly.

The app can even count objects and offer answers to simple math equations as needed, making it handy for doing homework or tracking inventory.

As Gizmodo puts it, “The iScanner app is yet another example of cleverly leveraging an always-connected camera to do more than just intelligently make photos look prettier.”
