The App Store is loaded with many apps that scan documents, but most of them seem to take an eternity to process files. Additionally, they aren’t always accurate. I’ve scanned business cards and manuals, only to go back and enter additional information in manually. There’s a new app that promises users that they will no longer have to wait and it boasts that it can produce PDF documents from any photo at a very high speed and at the highest image enhancement quality.
It’s easy to get started with JetScanner as a quick start guide helps users learn the ropes. There are two ways to create documents. Users can either tap the camera icon or tap the album icon. Once a document is created, users can make adjustments by tapping on the wizard icon to adjust the smart crop or edit additional processing options like adjusting color, making the image black and white or quickly reverting back to the original. Additionally, users can tap the information button in the upper right corner to change the paper size of the PDF.
Whole documents and pages can be shared as a PDF or Image. Users can then email it, open it in another app, print it or save it to an album. It’s even possible to share multiple documents and pages together by tapping on the edit button to select the items and then tapping on the share icon. The app also can batch process files at the same time. After sharing options are set, simply tap done and that’s all there is to it.
Just when I thought that the interface couldn’t be easier to use, JetScanner also comes loaded with useful gestures. Swipe to the left or right to delete lists, use a two-finger pinch to zoom in and out and double tap on any page to zoom in and out. These gestures make it a lot easier for those who need to speed up their work.
I was greatly impressed with how fast JetScanner worked as long as the app is used properly. Documents need to be flat, well lit and the background must be uniform. The stabilization feature really helps in low light conditions. Following these suggestions results in files that are scanned with lossless compression.
There was only one feature that I wish the app had and that is a way to organize documents on the home screen. I didn’t see an option to create folders, but there is a way to name files and sort them by date created, date modified and name.
JetScanner is a perfect for anyone looking for a scanner app, and it’s also a nice replacement for users who need a way to scan documents flawlessly and effortlessly. It's easily recommendable.
