There are a number of document scanning applications on the App Store and Google Play Store. With so many choices available, it is difficult to select one that you can rely on for quality scanning. Luckily, I have just the app for you. After a lot of trial and error, I finally came across Fast Scanner. It is an app that surely stands out from the rest. Find out why in this review.
This app integrates effortlessly with your phone’s camera. As a result, it is possible to take pictures of any document and leave the conversion to the application. It supports white image capture, black, grey and color images. Fast Scanner has an automatic PDF export tool which scans documents and converts them to PDF instantly. You can send the PDF files via the email send option on the app. It also has an editing feature which allows you to add or remove text from your PDF file. Last but not least, you can print through the cloud. It is a very handy tool for professional and school use.
Fast Scanner is compatible with both Android Mobile and iDevices such as iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It requires Android 4.1 and up and iOS 9.0 or later respectively.
Ease of Use
This application is very easy to use. All you have to do is capture an image with your phone camera within the app, and the app will convert the picture to PDF. I like that the app is optimized to work very fast. This saves me a lot of time when I am scanning documents. I have also not experienced any challenges using the app. It doesn’t crash or freeze when in use. The developers have also proven their commitment to improving the app by updating it often. In the latest version, they have fixed bugs which has greatly improved the performance.
Fast Scanner has a straightforward and easy to use interface. The tools are self-explanatory, and they are conveniently organized on the screen for easy access. The design is quite simple. It does not incorporate numerous colors. Actually, it has only one color - blue. However, I think this design suits the app’s genre.
This scanning app is free, but it contains in-app purchases. The in-app purchases make it possible for you to upgrade to the PRO version which is ad-free and allows you to print documents externally to any PC or Mac printer among other things. This version goes for $4.99.
