[Android] Free - SkanApp hands-free PDF scanner (was $28.99) - Google Play


Another freebie for your Android devices. Apparently, while the UI looks old and outdated, the performance of the app is good.

From the website:

Having both hands free, enhanced by Augmented Reality buttons, lets you hold and scan stapled documents, folded receipts, books and magazines and even add voice remarks without touching the phone.
With the app's incredible speed of 250+ pages in 10 minutes¹, you can declutter your office by scanning all those documents in big three-ring binders and piles of folded receipts quickly and easily.
OCR (100+ languages) is done on the phone, Internet is not required.

The ability to create your own PDF Keywords in any language regardless of the languages used in the document, makes it easy to organize and find documents later.

SkanApp's Email service will automatically split large PDF files or groups of JPEG images into several emails with valid attachment sizes.

When used in a hand-held mode, especially outside on a sunny day when on-screen buttons are difficult to see, the SkanApp offers a convenient option to use physical, tactile buttons of your smartphone. Press the Volume Down button to turn on/off the voice notes recording. And use a single and double press on the Volume Up button to take pictures and blast them into the Cloud as JPEG or multipage PDF files.
The Augmented Reality Capture and Cloud buttons can also be activated remotely by any Bluetooth selfie stick, Bluetooth remote shutters and any headphones or audio cables (i.e. Cellet's Hands-Free Audio Cable, UPC 800768507113) with a Media button.

¹ Once scanning is finished, the app can be suspended/paused (Home button), and the long running tasks, such as OCR, will be completed by its background process.

  • Check the reviews first and in particular - the developer's response to negative reviews. It says a lot about who is behind this and really doesn't make we want to give them any access to my data!

    • Tell us who is behind this please. Curious to know what you think, especially given your username.😂
      Google? FB? Tencent? China?

  • I meant it tell you a lot about the type of person, not specifically anyone in particular. The way the developer has responded to negative comments is both condescending and unprofessional. A decent person would appreciate constructive criticism and try to attend to concerns raised, not insult and belittle the one who provides the feedback. If they don't take this seriously, how seriously do they treat things like security? Regardless, there's just no reason to treat people like crap and i refuse to support anyone that does - free app or not.

  • no bargain just another dodgey app from a rather rude developer
