If you labeled either side of a Venn diagram with “has access to a full scanner” and “needs a scanner,” how much crossover would there be? Instead of waiting for a scanner to be available, iOS users can put one in their pocket.

Need to scan a page from a textbook? Maybe send a project outline to your new boss? Whatever the situation, having your iPhone double as a document scanner proves incredibly useful, and that’s exactly what you get with iScanner. And this convenient document scanner app is on sale for $39.99 (regularly $199).

Turn your iPhone into a high-quality document scanner

Your iPhone packs a powerful camera, and iScanner pairs it with AI to create high-quality scans of documents, educational materials, lists and more. For students, this is a quick way to produce digital copies of textbooks and research materials. And if you’re starting a new job, you can make a scan of any written training you receive.

iScanner is easy to use and produces excellent results. But it isn’t limited to scanning documents. It can read QR codes, ID cards or even measure the area of a room or the size of an object. Looking for a new home? Make sure the room you could be living in matches the dimensions the seller promised.

If you encounter a difficult math problem, iScanner can help there, too. Just point your iPhone camera at a written or typed math expression and iScanner will give you a solution instantly. It’s easy to see why iScanner was rated the App Store’s No. 1 Scanning App, with a 4.8 out of 5-star rating and more than 80 million downloads.
