What's New

Three years ago, we released our first version of FineScanner, and today we are proud to offer something more than just an iPhone/iPad scanning app. This is the most innovative and technologically advanced mobile scanning solution, a real alternative to desktop scanners, which is capable of scanning both documents and books. Try our new book scanning technology and check out the other improvements we’ve introduced in FineScanner 5.0!

+ BookScan technology for scanning books. Simply enable the Book mode in your camera and take snapshots of facing book pages. BookScan will split the opposing pages into two separate images and correct any distortions and lighting defects. It will then unbend any curved lines as if you pressed the book against the glass of a conventional scanner. BookScan requires an active Internet connection and is only available to premium-account users.

We thank all of the 200+ beta testers who downloaded and tried out the new technology and provided their valuable comments and suggestions. They were of great help to our developers.

+ New document ‘capture’ technology. It automatically finds the edges of a page and photocopies it without having to press a button. All you have to do is to place your smartphone on a document and scanning begins automatically.

+ New image editor. We have completely overhauled the scan editing GUI based on the results of usability surveys and your feedback. To make the editing process more straightforward, we opted for a simpler design and reduced the number of steps required to complete an action.

Your comments and five-star ratings for version 5 in the App Store have motivated us to produce the coolest mobile scanning app currently available. Please update your version to FineScanner 5.0 and tell us what you think!
