TurboScan™ Pro: PDF scanner Positive Reviews
Greatest app you thought you’d hardly useWrong, you will use this app more often than you can imagine. It’s a one-time charge and you have the highest quality scanner you could own. Best of all, it’s with you all of the time. I have owned scanners/printers that take up room, need ink replacement, and must be replaced frequently, and I must have access to it at the time I need it. With TurboScan, it’s there when I need it. I have just installed the TurboFax Pro, as I am occasionally needing to fax an item as opposed to emailing it, as some businesses do not allow access to their computers via outside emails. I’ve always had to leave home, either drive to bank (free faxing), or to a postal annex type place and pay per sheet (usually costing $1.00 per page). The thing is, I’ve now had to take the time to drive somewhere, go inside a business, and pay someone more money to fax something I could have done from home, for less time and less money. I can’t wait to try it out! P.S. I do not write reviews, but when I found the TurboFax app today, I felt I had to rate and review the company that makes these two app. Outstanding!!!!!.Version: 3.2.1
Great fit for work applicationThis app works like you would want it to, I work in an industry where measurements are taken in the field , and then transferred to shop layouts/cut sheets. I live 45 minutes away from our shop so not only does the app save time, it also saves money by allowing me to send in quality cut sheets from anywhere, and saving me the time from having to drive to our shop everyday. I don't have a fax machine at home. I use pdf to send them, and my boss simply opens the pdf file sent to his email, prints the cut sheet, and within minutes our shop is fabricating the work. What used to take a minimum of 24 hrs, now takes minutes, and every scan can be saved to the cloud or other devices, so instead of carrying physical paper cut sheets around until the jobs are completed, it's all on my phone if an installer has a question, I simply open the file for reference. If there is anything negative that I would be forced to say, it's make sure you clean your camera lens, which is user based not the app. And hold your device as still as possible to get the best scans. Great app, and a huge help in my profession..Version: 3.0.2
Excellent App[2021 Updated Review]: Still my favorite app for productivity but the latest updates and a new iPhone have made this app even better! The ‘auto’ feature works really well and made the 3x scan worth it more often. Other little details have improved and I appreciate that they have continued to make this great app even better.
I’ve been using this app for over 5 years. As a college student it helped me make up missed notes, copy ppt slides, and saved me the cost of a few of those ‘buy my $300 book for this class and we’ll use it twice before you resell it for $10’ deals. In the workplace, this app was even more valuable. Especially when I was working in the field, I could quickly create a clean-looking pdf scan, email it to billing, and by doing so back it up in the cloud. A minute while parked at the job site on this app and I’d leave a job site with my part of the deal done and backed up. NO MORE LOST INVOICES!! Definitely a five star app. It is among my most valued apps, if under-appreciated. It’s one of the only apps I have that I’m a bit sad that it took me (probably over) five years to write this rave review..Version: 3.2.2
One improvement needed. Another suggested.Well, I like the app a lot. Use it every day. Definitely recommend it. Best in AppStore, and I’ve tested many. The improvement I’m missing is quite simple: 1) after you frame the document, you should be prompted DIRECTLY to name it. Could be by default or by have that feature in the menu. For example. I finish framing, I go to next screen to export it. The document has the document+date as it’s name. But I have to click to edit, then edit the name, then back to export. Skip that and after the framing ask the user to name the document. You can still maintain the default name, but it needs to be “selected” in a way that when the user types, the text disappears. If he wants to keep default, he/she’ll only need to click on “done”. I hate have to click to edit the name every time and then get back. Not intuitive. This would make things lot easier. Again, not all people may agree with this feature, so having a toggle to activate it would be cool..Version: 2.9.8
SuggestionI love Turbo scan, I’ve been using it for years now. I am also using the turbo fax app. There are several other scanning apps out there, but I still like this one the best because it gives the option to save as a photo image so it gives me the most flexibility when saving things and using them in other apps (like apps that let you change PDFs).
But I have a few suggestions.
1. Is there an option for auto scan? I’ve noticed that adobe scan has that option and it is extremely handy, especially for people with hand disabilities. I recently had joint replacement on both of my thumbs and I have the iPhone plus, which is challenging to hold even with two good thumbs, but impossible with no useful thumbs. So, it’s extremely challenging to hold the phone and hit the button to take the picture/scan. But in Adobe it does it automatically. So I’ve had to scan in Adobe and then save to TurboScan.
2. This is my major request. I have upwards of 175 documents that I’ve scanned in. Organization is my issue. I do save them to “my files” in iCloud. Or sometimes in Dropbox. Because I can make folders and albums etc. But I want to keep them in TurboScan as well. I need to be able to group my docs by subject. (My son’s stuff from school. My stuff for work. Etc)
So, please consider adding albums and folders like is available with the iPhone files app or Dropbox etc.
Thank you for listening.
Tried all: this is the bestUpdate: Still the best. I’ve been using this for years and it is flawless. Sometimes I need OCR and go elsewhere, but TurboScan is so much better for every other use that this is my go-to. I’m currently trying to find a free scanner than my students can use while distance learning, so I’m going back through the list of “best scanners” and trying them all out again. Nothing compares. You’d be amazed at how many scanners don’t allow you to save or export an image file. This is the best.
2016? I am a scanning nerd. I have tried all the top-rated scanning apps (stupidly, paid for them all). I also have a hand-held DoxieGo. This is the phone app. I use it to take photo notes of whiteboards to save class notes, and to take easily readable scans of books. My students are amazed at the difference between my take-away notes (turbo scan) and theirs (camera). Excellent as-is. Never change..Version: 3.0.3
Super easy and intuitiveThis app (paid pro app) does what it is supposed to do and does it very well. The scanner function allows you to resize the scan area of a photo if the app does not pick up the entire scan area (although with a flat sheet of paper on a dark background it does a great job), the scan quality is very good on medium settings, and the app will save the pdf to your phone or you can immediately email as a pdf straight from the app— you can also draft the body and subject line of the email straight from the app. This is a super handy “fire and forget” scan app when you need to send a couple or three pages (you can combine photos in a single pdf) quickly without having to scan through a separate scanner/printer to a hard drive. This app is my first option for scanning a couple docs and getting them out the door. Well worth the pro price. Kudos..Version: 3.2.1
This scanner is bestI have used Turbo Scan now for several years - it is great. I use it to scan large blue prints 22" x 34" and can then email it or print on smaller paper. This app lets you "frame" or crop in order to pick segments of a document/picture. Other scanners are not user friendly for scanning large prints or even a "white board" and then print on letter size paper. Don't waste time and money on other apps ( I have tried several others and they can't compare to this one).
A previous update removed the ability to scan a "white board" from a distance with clarity. Current scanned image is very small and framing is difficult and then making the image larger is not clear. Previously I could zoom in on distant white board, then frame - image was very good. Would like to see this as an option. Currently I am using an iPhone 6+.
I still rate this app as a 5 star.
Update review 6/6/17
I asked for the return of the "zoom in" feature and the technical department responded. It helps with whiteboard scans or large sized drawings that would be difficult or impossible to get a good scan. If rating scale went higher than 5 it would see a 10 from me. The other updates that were made has truly made this the best scanner on the market.
YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED.
Thanks Turboscan for making the best scanner app even better..Version: 2.8.5
DeebaI love this app! I use it several times a day. (Tip: For products you buy, that you’ll probably want more of... take a picture of the package, using TurboScan. Then label it with searchable tags. Do the same with the instructions for your smoke detectors, and other important instruction books. Scan them, label them with searchable tags, and you’ll always be able to find those instructions.) There is one thing I’d like to request of TurboScan. Please get TurboScan working properly with Apple’s iCloud! The other great apps that I use to organize my life, (Clear, and Notability) share their data across all my devices! They do this, using the Apple iCloud. There has been no need to get another app (like "Documents", or some other thing) in order to have all my info in those, show up on all my devices. Everything in "Clear", and "Notability" just shows up... I didn’t have to do a thing to make that happen!! Why doesn’t TurboScan do that??? !!!.Version: 3.1.1
Powerful business tool!!This is one of the most useful apps of all time. If you are in business, you must have this app. When you are dealing with lots of documents on a daily basis, like I am, you can quickly use the app to photograph the document. The app then adjusts the edges of the document and makes you a nice, clean PDF of the document. You do not have to carry papers around, nor worry about losing paperwork. You have your whole set of documents in your pocket at all times. Also, you can easily email, text, etc a single page, multiple pages or the entire set of documents in a file quickly. You can even scribble notes on a napkin, take a photograph of the napkin and have a PDF document of your notes. I did that today. I cannot say enough good things about this app. God bless the person or persons who invented this application.

Scan any size document!From the first day I scanned an oversized landscape design and emailed it to my professor, I have used and loved this app!
Did you spend three hours compiling all of the medical and other paperwork for your little darling to go to overnight camp, (with an organization that still insists you print out everything and hand fill out forms!), then dutifully emailed it according to all of the directions, drive five hours to drop her off, only to find out that “something” went wrong on their end, and they don’t have any of your paperwork? No worries! You’re the smart mom who expects someone else to drop the ball; you always scan all important documents, email them and retain them in the app. So, with three clicks, you have resent them to the camp counselor, and your child is already running toward the first activity.

Great App! Developers are amazing!I love this App and use it almost everyday. But it has become slower since the latest updates to iOS. It will work fine for the first few scans, but then the camera will begin to lag, or processing time becomes 3, 4, 5, times longer. When selecting multiple docs for a batch upload, the selections are laggy and scrolling is slow. I’ve tried restarting my phone, which helps again for the first couple scans but then begins to show the same problems. To the developers, PLEASE optimize it for the latest iOS and my 6S Plus. I would very much appreciate it! :)
Thank you for releasing and update so quickly! I will be heavily using this app in a few days and would be very happy to have it operate quickly as it has been in the past. Thank you again for listening to your customers! 😀.Version: 2.9.2
Best app idea ever!I have been using this app since its start and it has always been my go to application for keeping track of whiteboards, napkin doodles, business cards, papers, documentation. Anything you have on paper that you want digital this is the perfect app for all your needs. It cleans up all shadows, old discolored "white"-boards and gives it a beautiful copy in digital form. It also can be used for grabbing recipes, articles you want to keep from magazines, or even the mound of scrap papers shoved in wallets and I would guess purses. Love it and it has been a consistent and solid performing app. FYI there is *NO* OCR or Business Card to address book integration. That is not its purpose. If you need these features I would look to Microsoft OneNote as it scrapes images for text. The mobile version of OneNote, the last time I used it, was horrible..Version: 2.8.5
My multitasking must haveI’ve been using TurboScan for at least 5 years now. I had gotten the app for one single use. I figured I’d delete it when I was done using it that one time. Clearly I never did delete it. I was always using it!
We’ve been through some pretty amazing times together. Updates, changes, bug squashing, you name it we’ve been through it. Seamlessly might I add. Never a glitch, hiccup or crash. Every time I whip out my phone and use it for one of its many uses; people are in AWE. Literally! Being my 49 year old self this of course makes me look pretty cool and definitely more techie than I really am. It’s an amazing multitasking app! You too can look cool and techie with TurboScan (that’s my line; don’t steal it)!! Techie with TurboScan is also mine. Don’t. Just don’t. LOL!
Yes, I most definitely recommend this app :D.Version: 3.0.2
Love itI’ve been using this as my primary scanner for years and I can’t believe I haven’t reviewed it until now. The framing and focus is remarkably reliable compared to other scanner apps and I find the interface very intuitive. I stay organized with a couple of key notebook and file storage apps that have their own integrated scanners that work pretty well but I still find myself using TurboScan for plenty of documents that the others seem to struggle with for whatever reason. It stores and exports documents great on its own, it allows you to export in a variety of formats easily, and is just a really easy way to augment the abilities of your other productivity apps. I only spent a few dollars on it and it’s been a great go-to for years now - easily the best money I will ever spend in the App Store.Version: 2.9.8
Look no furtherI haven't tried any other scan apps because I haven't needed to. This one is excellent. I work on the road for a small charter airline and need to get documents to HQ taking pictures in less than ideal lighting conditions. Turbo Scan does a marvelous job w B&W or color. Easy interface. Never had crashing probs. Sometimes tells me I'm low on memory, but I ignore and have never had a problem. Highly recommend.
Dec 2015 update. Still awesome. They just updated so the 3X taking scan (photo) is just one click now. Good job folks.
Dec 2017 update. Sorry for the broken record, but still loving and using this app a lot.
April 2018 update. Not just because I want these programmers to succeed, but also because I use the app all the time. It’s great. You won’t be disappointed..Version: 2.9.0
Very handy for teachersI use this to upload documents to Dropbox or Google Drive for my students to download: handwritten notes from a student, chalkboard images, graded assignments, etc. It is fast and accurate and easy to use with enough options to be useful but not overwhelming. Since I got it for classroom use I've started finding more and more uses for it at work and at home. So much more useful than just taking a camera image, and so much more convenient than a scanner/printer, and it's the only thing that can easily grab my chalkboards and turn them into documents. Thanks for this app, I have been recommending it to my students and to friends and family.
Edit: continues to be updated with new features and usability improvements. Highly recommended..Version: 2.8.5
The best!Been using this for free for a couple of years now and it’s the easiest, simplest, most accurate, dependable, reliable, & useful scanner I’ve ever used. I can print from it wirelessly, can copy and transfer the files to an email, social media acct,etc. I can edit the image, color, clearness,& size of documents. I can take or pull- out any documents from my photo library, word files, files from other apps , etc., scan them and convert them to pdf or jpeg format when shared to others. All of its features are useful and significant in a day to day management of documents. My very first documents downloaded are still saved hoping that it won’t get lost and that there will be no limitations on the size or number of files you can only save. Get it!!.Version: 3.2.1
Still the best.Have been using TurboScan for about 8 years now. My best TurboScan story: I was asked to go to court to pull and copy some legal documents (70 pages)! The local copier was down at the court and the client was desperate. I launched TurboScan and was able to scan and email all 70 pages - and this was on my old iPhone 4s. I was a bonded courier for a while and could easily supply proof-of-delivery signatures while still at the delivery point without needing a separate device to record the signature. Still use TurboScan years later to scan everything. Like the framing ability, shade adjustment and direct-to-pdf functions.
The interface is just right. Not too busy, but every function can be gotten to quickly. If you need to record things on the go, get this app!.Version: 3.0.3
Excellent app.I am pleased with TurboScan. I have scanned numerous parts manuals that are actually very thick. I keep all of my receipts handy with this app. I also use it to scan documents that had to be filled out and signed and then emailed to whom ever. I have only had an issue one time in the passed, and that was while I was in the middle of scanning in a rather large manual I was just ejected off of the app for what ever unknown reason and all my progress was just gone leaving me to start over. This happened maybe 3 times then I gave up. I will say that I have no had this issue since. Perhaps it was a bug that popped up after a lengthy Time using the app that has now been resolved. I also use TurboFax as well and couldn’t be happier with both applications!.Version: 2.9.8
Really appreciate this app! Thank youI have come to rely on this app for tons of personal & work obligations. I never need a fax machine any more. Fabulous😘
The very first day I got this I was in Staples store in Alexandria Va making copies, and a young foreign exchange college student was trying to fax about 25 pages of important documents to her college... It would have cost her over $25... She allowed me to assist😊 I used Turbo scan and emailed all her documents safely free of charge. I have used it even to fax important signature pages on contracts!!
This app has never failed!!! Thank you very much! I really appreciate your app!! I also use it to document just about everything! I just finished copying all our flight itineraries, hotel info etc for or up coming trip!! All in one document AWESOME SAUCE!!! Thank you😊.Version: 2.8.5
Turbo ScanThis is the best scan app I have tried. It scans in black and white and color. It has improved from the last time I accessed it. The quality fax is a amazing. I have tried another app but I was not impressed. Find myself always using this. Don't get turned off if you take a picture of the document to be scanned and phone shadow is reflected on it. The end result will be flawless, if it is a black and white. Not sure what will happen if it is in color. I give it five stars because it is worth to have. You scan and email right from the app. How awesome is that. They also offer a fax app that has a cover sheet. You have to pay to fax. I have not used it but I have it on my phone if the need arise. Please try...highly recommended..Version: 2.9.4
Where is the upload to Google drive option?I used to be able to upload files from TurboScan into my Google Drive. The Google Drive upload option appears to be no longer available. This feature was one of the main reasons why I download it and purchased a TurboScan. Can you assist?
Thank you very much for the reply to the above comment. Know that I am unable to see a Google Drive option after selecting open in/AirDrop. Google Drive used to show up as an option and now it does not. I’m not sure what to do. Thanks again. I got your reply. Thank you. I looked all the way to the right and did not see Google Drive. I tapped on the three dots and did not see Google Drive in the available selection of apps. I reinstalled Google Drive on my phone. That did not work either..Version: 3.2.1
Excellent AppI am a real estate agent here in Tennessee and purchased this app 5 years ago for $1.99 and it has worked flawlessly ever since the purchase! Sometimes I'm in a customers home our out In the field and don't have access to a printer so I scan and email the docs straight from my phone as to comply with State Law in regards to providing my client with copies of what they signed immediately! The company keeps the app up to date and that's important with the ever changing technology market. This is an app that I have found myself relying on more and more everyday because I know it's always there and reliable and up to date! Gives you the option of sending your documents via text email or what ever else you may want! Excellent app!.Version: 2.8.5
Great app, smooth, practical, user-friendly, hand-held scanner and filingSaves lots of time and certainly beats using a scanner. The most useful feature: you can create multi-page documents and add pages to a previously scanned document. If you need to present trip receipts, for instance, you can scan each of them on the go and at the end of your trip have just one neat file with all of them scanned in time order! It's the non-desktop utility that I use the most! You can organize yr files in folders (receipts, IDs, health certificates) and easily send any of them by email or other app in different formats (pdf, jpg, etc.). It gas saved me on several trips when I needed to present copy of documents or remember their numbers and dates..Version: 3.2.2
I love it so much I've gifted it twice!This is one of the few apps I consider to be "indispensable".
I love it so much I have actually "gifted" it on two different occasions to two different people who insisted that they could simply take photos of documents and mail me those photos, but after we struggled with the bad quality of their photos and trying to adjust those photos, I just gave up fighting and sent them a copy of the app myself. Now they've each fallen in love with this app as well and have also become very vocal supporters.
To all you people not using this app and still using regular photos instead, stop wasting your time and everyone else's time – skip a single latte and buy this app and trust me, you will be much happier!.Version: 2.8.5
5 years later still my favorite appTurboScan is my essential Go-To app. I scan docs, receipts, pics, passports, meeting notes, shopping lists, then I email them to myself for easy search the titles have the year and subject. Or email them to someone else for their reference. Also when somebody sends me a document to sign I simply print the pdf file, sign the document file and scan the signed document back into a pdf to be emailed back to the sender. Scanner in my pocket. I can then dispose of the paper document because I can always find what I am looking for through Search. All this on my phone with a few seconds of app time. Love it. Resolutions are great. The new 3x capability is nice to have but 1x is so good I don’t find 3x necessary..Version: 2.9.4
What a great scanner !!This is surely one of my most beloved apps. I am a professor and write out lecture notes for my classes at Carnegie Mellon University, then copy them with this app and distribute the copies to my class. This app is great. I've been using it for the above purpose for many years. The only (slight) improvement I would request would be an option to have the initial framing be a tiny bit larger, so it would include my notes at the very margins. Sometimes those get cut off and I have to manually enlarge the frame. No biggie, but it would be nice to have the option to request larger framing from the get go. In any case, this is an absolutely awesome app.
5 years later, still using it, still finding it one of my most beloved apps..Version: 2.9.8
Almost Perfect But No Password ProtectionThis is absolutely one of my favorite apps. Everything it does it does virtually flawlessly. Imaging is fantastic. Adding pages is a breeze. Copying to iCloud goes without a hitch. But it has one major fail and that is NO password protection for emailed documents. With identity theft rampant, you would think this feature would be an obvious one, but no. The only solution I can find is copy your jpeg to iCloud, open it with Preview on your Mac, and assign a password, and email it from your desktop, which completely negates one of TurboScan’s most convenient features. Password protection has been sorely overdue for years now. Until then, I can only give this near perfect app only three stars..Version: 3.2.1
Outstanding APPIf you don’t have it you should unequivocally have this on your phone. I don’t remember how much it was but it is so useful and handy in those few times you need that it is indispensable. I’ve had it about six months and used it about 12 times and it sure beats running to Staples or some other place you can’t find forget about the fact that it’s free and immediate once you pay for the app. So easy to use. I just scanned a plot plan and sent it to my engineer. The plan was rolled upWrinkled mess and I did the three times scan and it came out as good as anyone could imagine – and imagine that! It came from my iPhone and was sent to him immediately. Download it now you won’t be disappointed..Version: 2.9.0
Best ScannerThis App is amazing. It Keeps getting better, they add value often. I've had this App for a few years, and haven't used an actual Desktop Scanner since getting this. You can merge multiple pages into one pdf or jpeg and email right from within the App. It saves all previous scans too, in case you want to go back and find old scans. Highly recommended. With iOS 11 and a built in scanner app that lets you use Apple Pencil immediately after scanning to sign documents and email back, they need to add this functionality fast. I love this app but ease of use is always the better option, and i will use this app less and less and start knocking off stars..Version: 2.8.5
It's not just a pictureGreat app but every time I use it in front of someone they think I'm just taking a picture. It corrects the lighting and throws some kind of filters on it to turn documents into crisp black and white pictures ready to email. It's so much quicker than shlubbing to the scanner. And of course awesome when you're somewhere other than the office. Try it and you'll find yourself using it all the time.
My only small issue with the program is that if I am listening to music or an audiobook the app will turn the sound down to a very low volume. Seems kind of odd that it even has anything to do with the volume control. It would be nice if this was fixed..Version: 3.0.3
Exceeded my expectations!!!!I use this app mostly at work. I make PDFs of parent notes, tests, letters I receive from parents, notes from lessons for students who are absent--basically, anything and everything I want to keep a record of. I also use at home to make PDFs of anything that requires me to sign and return--forms, letters, applications, etc. I also scan any worksheets that I come across in my children's homework, which I think are useful for my students and email them as PDFs to my myself and colleagues to print and use. The quality of the documents I scan is excellent and it's so easy to email them as PDFs. I am impressed and I always recommend it to anyone needing a scanner. 5 stars and then some!!!.Version: 2.9.4
Fast, Simple, Easy to Use... Best App For Scanning !While traveling for business I need to quickly scan and log my daily expense receipts the moment I get them. Whether it be a physical paper receipt or an emailed copy.
Three reasons why Turbo Scan is Golden to me:
1. I can quickly pull my phone out at the point of sale and scan new receipts the moment they are printed. (That way I don't have to be constantly searching for tiny little slips of paper that are so easy to loose)
2. I can also import expense receipts that I receive via email (like car rental and hotel receipts, not always present when those are totaled)
3. Then most importantly when emailing my monthly report I just tap 'add attachment' , select Turbo Scan, scroll down to the appropriate scan log and attach it to my report.
All from my phone. No more paper. No more desktop printer / scanner combo.
It's important the scanning app works well within your phones OS so that you can easily import / export content to / from other apps and email, etc... and Turbo Scan does this well. That's why I give it FIVE stars ! It's made my life a whole lot easier ;-).Version: 2.8.7
BE$T app!I I use it multiple times a day, every day! And when I have to submit legal docs immediately, the receiver is always pleased and impressed by my TurboScans I use it multiple times a day, every day! And when I have to submit legal docs immediately, the receiver is always pleased and impressed by my TurboScans am a freelance contractor. I mostly I use TurboScan to send invoices to clients and my agents. I live in NYC and don't have the free time to personally drop them off.
These get me paid on time! Even my agents ask me which app I use to recommend to others. I've even used it to send legal documents in lieu of a fax machine. Being able to resize the image is awesome. AND I can access all of my invoices in 1 app!! LOVE LOVE LOVE..Version: 3.0.2
Great, easy to use softwareI use this app every day to scan documents, checks, receipts etc. It works quite well, basically just like having a scanner in your phone.
One thing I would like to see: a document type/size setting for checks! When I shoot them now, whether the camera is held landscape or portrait, if I’m saving it as a letter size document it always rotates the page layout to match the check (longest dimension to longest dimension). But that’s not what I want. I want the check to be displayed roughly to size, oriented so it’s upright, on a portrait letter page (long dimension to short dimension), when I’m shooting it that way. It doesn’t want to leave it alone. :).Version: 2.9.7
Turbo scan.This is the first app I bought, several years ago and a couple of phones ago. I use it all the time, for real estate documents to send quickly to title or another agent or for recipes and articles found in magazines in doctors’ offices. The program was shown to me by seat mate on an airplane when I just got my I-phone 4, and as a contractor he used it a lot. It has saved me hours and miles in my business and life in general. I’ve recommended TurboScan to hundreds of people. I use it several times a week, as I am often out of the office, lacking such machines found there. My friends and clients are amazed at the quality of the scans, too.

Great toolI use this scanner app to scan hand written reports in the field for work. I can then search for any past report in the field. I bought it about 2 or 3 years ago. I forget how much I paid for it but it is worth ten times as much. I have been telling everyone about it. It is logical and well thought out. Push one button and the scan will automatically be emailed to you. You can also start files with a collection of scans. I use a file to keep track of my monthly expenses or traveling expenses...no more paper receipts folded in my wallet! You will not be disappointed. It has some high def features that I don't use..Version: 2.9.4
Fantastic app!Long gone are the days where we had to have a dedicated scanner with crappy software to hook up to a computer in order to scan household documents when requested from outside agencies or for archival which was followed inconsistently anyway because it was too much trouble to set up.
So easy to use TurboScan in the fly with great results even for 11” X 17” documents,
Can email as PDFs immediately, totally flexible for rapid response items to get things done with no nagging back of your mind “when I get around to it” procrastination. Retain cars proof of insurance docs, download from insurer and email to others on your policy. Too many uses to mention..Version: 2.9.4
Beats a scanner any day!When I upgraded my Imac to a new one, you would think that software would exist that would upgrade my scanner as well, right? Wrong! HP did have an upgrade, but it ran so slowly that the scanner was basically rendered useless. Then I discovered Turboscan. For a mere 5 bucks I can carry a high-resolution scanner with me anywhere! I tend lose hard copy, so I use it for everything important: important letters I receive, last months bill, paycheck stubs. Give them a name, and throw them into a folder on my Mac, easy to find by name, or even scanning visually. Would give it a higher rating but 5 stars is as high as it goes! Thank you, Turboscan!.Version: 2.8.8
Folders?!? My wish has come true!!I have absolutely loved this app since I first bought it in 2012. It was the first app I ever paid for but immediately felt it was so incredibly worth the small purchase price. I’ve recommended it to friends and even helped my technophobe boss see its many uses (she has been thrilled, and it made me look smarter!!). However, I’ve always secretly desired a folder function to help organize my many stored documents. Lo and behold... upon opening the app tonight I was gifted my heart’s desire: FOLDERS!!! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU, TurboScan geniuses, for making an incredibly useful app even more efficient and effective!! ~swooning.Version: 3.2.1
A Full Function Scanner in your PocketI have used this app for years. It is absolutely the best app on my phone (and I have some good ones). I use it for scanning, printing, documents, pictures, and recipes. It’s a great tool in bringing the”paper monster” under control. Scans are crisp, as good if not better than industrial printer/scanners I’ve used at work. The program makes it easy to send scans in a variety of formats- like pdf and jpeg. I have recommended this to my friends, who have marveled at the ability to scan on the go without having to go back to the office for the commercial scanner. I am currently using the app with an iPhone 7..Version: 3.1.1
Beautiful, invaluable app.I’m in industrial sales and travel in my work and often need to scan documents, drawings, etc. of various sizes while in a customers facility. I stumbled on Turbo Scan in a magazine several years ago and have used it 5 to 10 times a week ever since. Have recommended it to several business associates who also swear by it. I prefer it to a flat bed scanner because of its portability (it’s always with me on my phone) and it’s ability to scan from magazines or stapled documents without disassembly. Plus its ease of sending documents to others from anywhere from my phone. Wouldn’t be without it..Version: 3.0.3
LOVE this app!!I’ve been using TurboScan for several years now and absolutely love it! It is SO convenient to be able to scan items by taking a picture of them on my phone, instead of having to be at home, with an actual scanner, get on my computer, etc. I can scan a document anytime, anywhere with just a few clicks and immediately email or text them to whoever I need to. I’ve never had any problems with it and no complaints ever about an image not being clear enough, etc. Looks like it was scanned on an actual scanner every time. SO easy to use. Again, love this app and highly recommend it!.Version: 2.9.2
Best of the best. Been using for several years.I normally don’t write reviews, but I can honestly tell you that Turbo Scan is my go to app for tracking expenses and scanning receipts back to my corporate office for items purchased and saving items for tax time. I love the ability to be able to change from photo quality to black-and-white to color-unbelievable scanning app been using since the first iteration of the iPhone.
I don’t own any of the company I am not being paid anything from the company, (however I’d take a little bit of money if you want to give me some!) Just kidding.
Nice job guys, keep up the good work with the app..Version: 2.8.8
I can't live without this app anymoreAs the title states, this app has become an essential part of my job! I don't always have access to a scanner and this does the job nicely. Plus with some newer features like the password lock, I feel safer with my secure documents being on my phone without having to clear out my history due to HIPAA concerns. My only gripe is minor, namely that certain areas don't scan so well (large black spots for example) in the BW mode, it leaves a spotty white area inside the black. In all though would highly recommend this app to others especially if you deal with a lot of paperwork on a daily basis..Version: 2.8.7
Love scanner...lacks organization of scanLove the scanner but the organization of the scans is lacking. If I scan receipts and put them in a “Receipts” folder....I cannot sort them. They are stored only by date ....that’s a pain. Also I cannot edit the date of the scan if I scan a receipt a dayor two after I make a purchase, thus the receipt is put of chronological order and harder to find.
Looking fir a better source with great scanning and at least better organization ability as organization of scans is very important. I contacted the developer and they have not plans to add these features any time in the future..Version: 3.0.2
Mobile scanner For business peopleI have recommended this Turbo scan app to no less than 20 people and I know at least three or four have purchased it. (Maybe more) When you need someone to send you one or two signature pages from a document and they take a picture of it with their phone and send you something that’s completely unusable, you just tell them to buy this app for five bucks Now you get an absolutely perfect PDF with a picture that is as clear as the camera on your phone.
I want royalties for referring folks to purchase it. I use it every day. Best five bucks I’ve ever spent.Version: 3.0.2
OutstandingI frequently need to grab a copy of a jazz chart for practice after a rehearsal. Since I can't take a part with me, I use my iPhone camera to snap a photo for printing later on. Problem is that I usually end up with a dark color shot that is hard to read.
I have used TurboScan for a while now, and my only gripe is that if I need to scan multiple pages, while holding my trombone, it gets a bit tricky. It’s hard to hold my horn, and tap scan, then tap “done” on the top right, then “next”, the “+”, then scan another page. Can these all be in the same area on the screen, or toggled, like a soft-key?.Version: 2.9.8
Great appI use the app a lot. I hope the next update adds folders to keep all your scans organized..Version: 2.9.7

FeedbackGreat app for creating PDf file. It would be great if there would be option to select multiple pics from gallery rather than just one.

I use this app quite a bitI mostly scan letter size pages of field data. Because my pages tend to get krinkled and occasionally rained upon, they don’t usually feed into my printer/scanner. This app is really great. I use it almost exclusively, it’s quicker and better results than manually feeding into the printer..Version: 3.1.1
