CamScanner - Scanner to scan PDF Review
CamScanner is a simple utility that lets you take photos of documents, use optical character recognition for scanning texts, and create PDF files out of them. The app also lets you manage the documents you scan.
User Interface & Navigation
There is a brief overview right after the installation. But even if you skip it, you’ll feel at ease with the app. Run it, point the camera at the document, select its type (a picture, an image, and so on), take a photo, and then follow the wizard. This method makes the app easy.
As you take a photo of a document, the app automatically detects the area you need. The image is cropped to fit the page you scan. Enhancement algorithms make the text clearer and easier to read.
The most important thing for many users is extracting texts. The built-in module recognizes texts and lets you edit them after processing. There is even a search system, so you can proceed right to the fragment you need.
Convenience of use
As you have the document (or a TV screen or a monitor) before you, it takes seconds to run the app and select the area you want to snap. The area may be of a custom shape. After taking the photo, the app automatically applies enhancements, so you get quite a readable picture, better than the original photo. There are even filters for better visual style.
Alas, some features one might need, like e-signature or annotating, require either a subscription or an extra app. On the other hand, they are available right from CamScanner. And if you only need paid features once, you can enjoy a 3-day trial.
There are CamScanner versions for Android and iOS, generally similar in features. You can even sync between the two – if, say, your iPhone has a better camera for taking snaps, and your Android tablet has a larger screen for editing or vice versa. The cloud space you get for free is 200 MB; subscription expands it up to 10 GB.
