Adobe Scan: PDF & Business Card Scanner with OCRfor Android

8

Adobe Scan scans documents using your device’s camera and adjusts them. It’s an easy way to take on-paper information and send it to the digital world.

Simple image transfers

Adobe Scan makes the process of photocopies portable and quick.

Taking documents with you is easy, but it's hard to scan a page into a PDF document when you aren't near a printer. That's what makes scanning apps such as Adobe Scan so handy. It's a simple and fast way to turn any physical document into a digital file.

Once you've taken a picture and processed it, you can enhance the image's resolution to make the document clearer and easier to view. This is important if your phone doesn't have a good camera. The better your pixel quality, the better the result will be. However, when you use the enhance feature, you can take a blurry image and turn it into a pic that’s more legible.

Once you've processed the PDF document you can email it or share it to other devices.

Your unscanned documents are found in your gallery, between all your photos and selfies. The app automatically detects tickets and other pages and sorts them into groups for an easier-to-browse list. Without this feature, you might spend hours sifting through different files.

You'll likely use the enhance feature often, as scan quality is inconsistent and is excellent on one scan and unreadable on the next. This’ll result in multiple attempts before some documents scan properly.

Where can you run this program?

Adobe Scan: PDF & Business Card Scanner with OCR is available for Android 5.0 and up as well as IOS 11.2 and later.

Is there a better alternative?

No. While there are other scanning apps on the app store, there are none with as many features as Adobe Scanner. But, in terms of quality, ScanBee is better with its page-fitting method.

Our take

Should you download it?
