Everyone has paper documents they need to keep. But if your dad’s office is getting out of hand, the iScanner iOS app can turn his iPhone into a quick and easy scanning tool that can help him clear the clutter.

iScanner: iPhone scanning when you need it

iScanner’s sharp scans and easy-to-use design won it 4.8 out of 5 stars on the App Store, with more than 80 million downloads (plus raves from the tech press). It turns any iPhone into a scanner, using machine learning and optical character recognition, aka OCR.

Dad just lays down his document in decent light and follows the app’s steps. Once the document is shot, iScanner runs it through multiple filters to remove noise and correct colors and artifacts. Handy templates make snapping IDs and other documents a breeze.

iPhone scans turn paper documents into digital files

Every scan is fully searchable and can easily be edited and shared, even if it’s handwritten. You can quickly send the text to a document file for your edits. iScanner supports PDF, JPG and TXT files to save a step and make it easier to work with documents (as well as to connect to editing software).

iScanner also serves as a digital toolbox for everyday tasks. QR codes can be zapped and opened while in iScanner, sparing awkward app fumbling. A ruler function provides accurate measurements of objects and rooms. iScanner can even look at groups of similar objects and offer an accurate count, or answer math equations that you scan.

Even in a digital world, paper can collect in pockets and offices, getting out of hand.

Give Dad freedom from paper this Father’s Day with the iScanner iOS app for $39.99, 33% off the $60 MSRP. This special Father’s Day Sale only runs through June 11, 2023, so act fast.
