Scanner Pro is an excellent tool for creating digital copies of documents, no matter where you are or what you need to do with them. With this tool at your disposal, you'll never have to worry about misplacing an important document or losing a receipt again.

Pros

Auto-detection features: This app does a nice job of automatically detecting the edges of your images and adjusting contrast to create clear images. You can also manually set the borders if you want to save only part of a document; and once you've captured an image, you can choose one of three options to find the right combination of Tint, Color, and Contrast to suit your purposes.

Camera Roll images: In addition to capturing document images through the app, you can also add them from your Camera Roll. This is a nice option because it allows you to take a lot of pictures in succession and then add them to the app whenever you have time.

Saving options: All images added to the app are saved as PDFs, and you can add a description to each so it's easy to locate later on. You can also link the app to your Dropbox, Evernote, or Google Drive account, and you can choose whether to compress the documents you save or not.

Cons

No importing: There is no way to import PDFs that you have saved in another location into this app so you can have all of your documents in one place. If you've used other scanning programs before, or if you receive documents directly as PDFs, there is no way to get them into the app, although you can send everything from the app to the same cloud account that you keep other documents in.

Bottom Line

Scanner Pro works well and creates high-quality documents that you'll never have to worry about losing, all for the reasonable price of $2.99. The auto-detection and saving options make it very convenient to use in all kinds of situations, and since it links with many kinds of cloud accounts, it facilitates keeping all of your important documents in one place.
