Pros
CamScanner is best application for scanning your documents and share the image as pdf or jpeg format. It has another fabulous option that it can convert your photo into text.
CamScanner is a great tool that I am grateful to have discovered. I will continue using it as long as it's free.
The fact that we can apply different filters which best suit our need is awesome. It also supports sharing of the document to various other messenger platforms and email which is very useful.
Cons
It has some issues while scanning document it got hanged or just stuck then we will have to close and again open app. Hope this problem will be sort out soon.
There is a required watermark on all scans unless you pay for them. I understand this, but it was my least.
If you are using it regularly then you won't face too many problems.

Best smartphone scanner application

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

- Adjust the scan quality so that the text is clear and crisp, also different filters can be applied on the pages of the document. - Share scanned documents by sharing a link to the document, emailing it, or uploading it on social media like WhatsApp Or telegram. - There are editing features and tools available for different uses. A passcode can be applied to protect documents.

Cons

- The trial version has a watermark, so you'll have to buy the premium version if you don't want the camscanner watermark on any of your scanned documents. - Advertisements begin to flow across the screen while using the application, making it difficult for users to scan.

Easily turn your phone into a scanner

Reviewed 2 years ago

I liked it very much, and it is easy to use and very fast in dealing with images and extracting them for you with the desired result, helped me to keep many important papers and documents in high quality in my phone

Pros

Many times we are in an academic or professional place and we want to keep a copy of important documents and papers, and because we do not have a scanner, we cannot keep them in a high copy, and at that moment we photograph them using the phone only, but they are very bad due to their poor quality, then CamScanner application came to solve this is the problem. It captures high-quality documents that...

Cons

The free version is full of ads that make it impossible to use and very annoying at times when we are in a hurry

SHAME on YOU CAM SCAMMER

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

No pros were added to this review

Cons

There is predatory advertising which YOU HAVE ALLOWED in the free version, which is a mimic of the working screen. When clicked, it takes you to an investment site. These people should not be allowed to do this. Sure, there are small letters saying advertisement but when you’re on the go, you click it thinking your are actually using the app but are taken to another site which is SAXO INVESTMENTS. Do something about this please! I have screen shots and an happy to share

Easy way to transform data and informations

Reviewed 3 years ago

It was awesome and still is. I being a student has to depend a lot on Camscanner. It was easy to operate and is versatile while sharing. Even when the picture data was not clear, Camscanner's MagicText used to make it clear which was life saving.

Pros

The way it allows us to convert pictures into pdf is the most valuable function. It uses lesser space so is compatible to various devices. The color fonts and trimming or cropping option are so advanced and can be modified as you like. It can convert pictures to word , excel, ppt, doc and many more. It has got functionality to save the created file in the software itself and has an easy option to share the formed files instantly to various platforms. The usage is so versatile various people prefer and recommend CamScanner.

Cons

The cons for the software is we cant access to other functions of not upgraded to pro version. It takes a bit longer time to transform files. Sometimes in old devices it gets crash which leads to loss of the progress.

Scanning with a camera

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

I'm amazed by the opportunity to have portable and easy to use scanner in my pocket, on my phone! It very useful for scanning, aligning, printing and editing documents. The greatest feature of it is that it is free. It is affordable for all regular users and can be easily upgraded with paid features when needed. I find it useful to be able to arrange the photos of documents and of other paper work in folders. I have used it successfully to store and classify my paper notes while studying.

Cons

In some cases, photos that I'm taking one after another are getting automatically sorted togetger in a separate folder by the app. I would like the app to have a feature for choosing whete to add the new photos to.
