CamScanner - Phone PDF Creator Review

Review Standarts
Our main goal is to provide full and useful app reviews. Our authors strictly follow the rules: minimum 15 hours of the real app usage experience or gameplay, test on main Android and iOS versions, test on phones and tablets.

Making scans is essential for business and personal use. But even if you have a computer, a printer or scanner, you can’t always take them with you. That’s why when you’re on the road, CamScanner will be the most used and valued app.

Are you tired of taking too dark and illegible photos of documents to send them? Then you should try CamScanner, which is far superior and immediately takes high-resolution scans.

This app is a highly accessible and efficient document, receipt, and draft scanner. It will impress you with its simplicity of usage and carefulness. Whether you would like to use it at work or only for personal use, it’s an essential app to download on your device.

Functionality 4.5/5

Using this app is a perfect way to scan, store, synchronize and collaborate on various docs across smartphones and tablets. It allows multi-page scanning straight from your device. Even the free version provides you imposing functionality if you have to digitize documents instantly.

CamScanner gives you some exporting options of sharing the docs:

  • Gmail;
  • social media;
  • save to gallery;
  • upload / print / fax;
  • others.

Your action plan is quite simple. First, snap the photo of the document you want to scan. Then the app recognizes the corners of the sheet and outlines it to crop in a way that look like a perfect perspective. Finally, you get a crisp and legible PDF file. A private or professional document like this is safe to share with other people.

Here are the most important features:

  • mobile scanner;
  • scan quality optimization;
  • quick search;
  • extracting texts from images;
  • sharing PDF/JPEG files;
  • fax;
  • collaboration;
  • advanced editing;
  • important docs security;
  • synchronization across platforms.

Design 5/5

The first thing you’ll see after downloading and opening the app is the fact it’s beautiful and has a minimalistic look. CamScanner is similar to any other PDF scanner app for Android but still unique.

The design of CamScanner is just fine. It is good enough for the functions that it serves. The navigation is easy to understand and robust, which is an important feature of an app like this.

The layout is intuitive. There are five explicit icon buttons and a quickstart document with a guided tour in it. On the bottom of your screen, you’ll see a single camera button.

Usability 9/10

The app just makes high-quality text and images photos in any format and then uses a precise auto-cropper to remove the background, keeping only the needed information in your scan. Then it offers you some enhancement modes. In the end, you get an excellent scan that you may keep on your smartphone, in the cloud, share with others, or send.

With CamScanner it’s not difficult to scan your documents in a flash, organize your library of files, tag them, or invite others to leave comments. Moreover, the interface is smooth and lightweight.

Cross-platform use 4/5

Requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Also, CamScanner is compatible with the majority of Android devices.

In-app purchases

As an in-app purchase, CamScanner offers fax technology. It allows you to send digitized documents to fax machines. In that way, CamScanner can replace not only a scanner but a fax machine, too. This in-app purchase serves as an attractive addition to a free, highly functional mobile app that already contains each of your important documents and ready to fax them.

In the paid versions you won’t have ads and watermarks. You will be able to edit optical character recognition files, export them as text, and have a higher quality scan, which is quite enough for just $1.99. Willingly, you may have a premium account subscription to get even more features and online storage space for $4.99. We recommend you that to fully enjoy all of its features and get rid of the ads. Just give it a go and tell us what you think.


It’s always handy to have an app that lets you scan the documents and convert them into PDFs. Imagine how much better it is to do that instead of taking pictures using your phone and sending them, especially if you want to send or receive documents for official purposes.

CamScanner uses your phone's camera. You may take pictures of your document, crop, edit, create a PDF, and then share it without problems. There are also additional options like merging files, protecting them by passwords and watermarks. CamScanner is just packed with features and popular among users. Just try it and free yourself of paper documents.
