    By karhy3
    It is a good application, the documents go well, but it does not allow sending several documents together, that does not make it very practical for me.
  • Options too

    By llsrealtor
    Switch from one of my email address to the other. Example: business and personal
  • Does it OCR or not?

    By American Viking
    This could be a useful app but simply seems to be nothing more than a fancy camera. I didn’t see any obvious, intuitive way to recognize and copy OCRd text after the image was captured. Where’s all the power?
  • TOTAL WASTE OF TIME app does not work!!

    By Like_Jimmy
    It didn’t not save my scans after abt 10 minutes of wasting time! Shame on Adobe you will see many people with the same complaint on their website. Tried using this app for abt 10 minutes its absolute trash. CamScanner worked and saved to camera roll in 2 flipping seconds not 10 minutes wasted! I’m not idiot however I felt terribly stupid wasting my time with this app. Kept hitting “Save PDF” and the friggin crap just kept disappearing!! Maddening. 0 stars.

    This is a very nice app but would be better if we can create folders in order to organize our scans .
  • Worthless

    By BobReilly
    Cumbersome, balky, temperamental – loses scans, auto scans the wrong stuff! Drag and drop mechanism for re-ordering pages is antiquated and pitiful.
  • No auto capture, what you see if not what you get.

    By Nidi Wudu
    The auto capture is real pain. It took photos of the file anyway. When I cropped the pages, they are not saved the way I cropped. Pages flipped.

    Love this app!! Makes processing documents on the go a lot easier. I also like the ability to save business cards to contacts. But! I will say that if you could make it so that we could add fields during that process it would be even better! Ideally Job Title, Department, Address, & Middle Name to name the ones I’ve wanted so far but realty anything that can normally be put into contacts and wouldn’t have to be transcribed manually. Hope this happens!! 😇😇
  • Not bad. Not great either

    By Nonameneeededthanks
    Scanning and creating documents is easy. But that's like saying, "look at me! I did a big boy thing!" The app does a thing it's supposed to do. Great job at meeting minimal requirements. Files you want to share are auto uploaded to a service with no security. So assume any sensitive data can be read by anyone who takes the time to iterate through the auto generated link combinations. That’s what I’d do. There's no swipe to delete, no swipe the other way to perform another specified action (upload to creative cloud, send to Acrobat dropbox folder, send as email attachment, etc), I can't select a group of files and do batch operations (upload, email, delete, etc). These are basic functions that should be easily accessible and intuitive given the 10 years of device functionality we've all learned. This is a fine PDF maker, but don't expect high praise for minimum effort. Get better or quit asking me to review your app.
