Ideal Scanner and Document Organizer

Overall, Camscanner helped me get rid of manual scanners and helped me quickly scan documents, efficient storage and fast retrieval. I found the software quite helpful in creating my document repository. My camera is my scanner, and my handheld devices are my office filing system, and I feel powerful. I don't need a bulky office file management system for my important documents. My office moves with me. I can convert lousy pages into professional-looking documents. I can share my documents with my team quickly. The best part is that it does the job much better than any of the competing products.

Pros

1. It automatically scans your documents and converts the scanned documents with batch processing, where you don't have to do repetitive iterations. 2. The most impactful feature is its ability to apply magic color effects to highlight the document content. 3. Another great feature is the searchability option among tour scanned images. 4. You can group your documents the way you want for easy and quick retrieval. 5. It allows you to import documents and images from other apps and seamlessly convert them into a searchable document repository. 6. You can save your files on the cloud and retrieve them from anywhere. 7. It integrates well with other leading software like Adobe PDF and MS Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint). 8. You can directly share the documents whenever you want. 9. The interface is user-friendly and intuitive. It lists relevant options to reset, edit, adjust, and crop. 10. You can even straighten slant images and convert difficult-to-read images into readable stuff.

Cons

1. Sometimes, batch processing or auto conversion of documents crops the important portions of your documents, and you need to adjust every page again. Sometimes you don't even know that auto-cropping removed something, so it needs some improvements. 2. If you try to import multiple PDF files, it does not work at all. 3. Sometimes auto highlight feature increases or decreases brightness too much. Sometimes you do not want a dark background, and there is no way to remove it. 4. It may be useful to convert a scanned document directly into an editable word file with OCR.

Reasons for Switching to CamScanner

The new technology brings convenience with fast retrieval.

Scan and convert your documents to PDF on the Go!!!

Overall Experience is great so far.

Pros

It lets users to take a picture of their documents and convert them into one pdf file with ease. There are different features that you can use including which type of document you want to scan e.g. ID card, Single pager document, Batch, Book, Question Book, QR code etc etc. File conversion options are also available in CamScanner. It pretty much fulfills all the needs of a corporate employee.

Cons

Sometimes the application crashes on iphone. Especially after recent upgrade to new iOS version 14.7.1.

CamScanner and my work

When sharing PDF files, they are exported with a watermark, so each user must evaluate accessing the premium option, which also removes all advertising. In my work, many times my documents cannot have a watermark, so I have looked for other solutions.

Pros

The application has a free version and offers the necessary features to work. It detects the document to be scanned very well, the auto-cropping is smart and the filters are good.

Cons

The interface could improve order and clarity when sharing and saving scanned files. In addition, several options will require an account and the premium version, so continuing with the application will depend on each user.

CamScanner

This was the one app I used constantly up until Adobe Reader because it was easy to use and made things easy for me. However I never liked their imprint on the bottom of the image and it turned me off so much that I barely use it nowadays.

Pros

I really enjoyed using CamScanner for about three years up until I was introduced to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC and I have made the move to that software recently.

Cons

I don't like that the company has to leave their imprint on the bottom of the picture to show that the image was taken by CamScanner. That is the main reason I switched to Adobe Reader and I am not going back to CamScanner

Cam Scanner

Able to store my articles for future reference in the cloud and in case they are deleted on my mobile device plus it saves on storage space this way.

Pros

It is clear when scanning a document. And it has affordable packages depending on one's ability. What I love about Camscanner is the fact that it's mobile and doesn't require one carrying a printer when i want to scan my documents. As a Content Writer, I use CamScanner to store the articles i have written them it in the cloud and can get access to them at any time.

Cons

The only disadvantage is having a CamScanner watermark when using the free version.

Reasons for Switching to CamScanner

CamScanner is easier to use.
