Scanner Pro 6 review: Portable document scanning in a snap

J.R. Bookwalter | July 23, 2015
Using an iOS device as a portable document scanner isn't the novelty it was just a few years ago, as app developers continue improving the experience by adding little conveniences to make it faster and more fun than using a dedicated hardware scanner on the desktop.

Last but certainly not least, Scanner Pro 6 now has the ability to re-edit scans, even after they've been saved. Change your mind about the cropping on a document? No worries. Want to switch a color receipt to black-and-white or vice-versa? You're the boss, dude.

Naturally, this update--absolutely free for previous customers, by the way!--loses none of the power of earlier versions, including the ability to sort files into folders, save in PDF format, open in other apps, or optionally send documents via an archaic fax (requires in-app purchase). Scanner Pro even includes an extension for applying its powerful crop and image enhancement skills to images right from the built-in Photos app.

Bottom line

Readdle teaches the proverbial old dog new tricks with Scanner Pro 6, making it easier and faster to scan documents on the go and save them to even more destinations.
