If you typ­i­cally snap pho­tos of doc­u­ments and save them in the Cam­era Roll, Scan­bot 6 is an app to try. The app pro­vides a far slicker user in­ter­face, plus a ro­bust set of tools to cap­ture, man­age and share sin­gle- or multi-page docs with ease. Au­to­matic edge de­tec­tion elim­i­nates the need for manual crop­ping, al­though recog­ni­tion tends to be slow in low light sit­u­a­tions or when doc­u­ments blend into the back­ground too much. How­ever, the qual­ity is fan­tas­tic, and doc­u­ments are saved in your choice of PDF or JPG files with a min­i­mum res­o­lu­tion of 200 dpi.

The core app is free, which in­cludes the abil­ity to also scan QR or other bar­codes, en­hance­ments (fil­ters, crop, ro­tate) and au­to­matic up­load to cloud ser­vices iCloud Drive, Drop­box, Ever­note, OneDrive and Ama­zon Drive.

Scan­bot 6 Pro au­to­mat­i­cally per­forms op­ti­cal char­ac­ter recog­ni­tion, which en­ables ex­tracted text to be copied or searched. Smart file nam­ing speeds up the process, along with We­bDAV and FTP up­loads, and the abil­ity to add pages to ex­ist­ing scans. Scan­bot is also a ca­pa­ble PDF ed­i­tor and has built-in an­no­ta­tion fea­tures.
