Genius Scan - PDF Scanner - Latest Quality Issues
Oct 24, 2021
Photos are clear text recognition is nonsense
I expected, after paying $7.95 for the upgrade, to get a usable document of some sort. But what I got was a random stream of words. In order to make use of what I got, I would have to paste these words into a word processor and spend a lot of time editing. Very disappointing.

Not user friendly
Cannot open a scan after I email it to myself on

The last photo in the pdf is always cropped by the application. When scanning, the application turns the images, then you are tormented to turn over each. Saves "user data", taking up hundreds of megabytes, 800mb deleted. On what basis do you save user data if a user deletes uploaded files?! Then this data probably merges into the Internet! Not good.

Air upwards
Imported pdf files are totally blurred and unusable after forwarding e.b. with AirDrop, therefore only two stars.

Allowed me to export scan (JPEG) to photos just…once
I purchased the app so I could scan items and save/export. I exported one JPEG and then…no more ever again because it won't let me, despite enabling access to photos. Srsly, what gives?

Exporting to iCloud doesn't work
Export to iCloud does not work, I contacted support but they didn't respond
Oct 21, 2021
I used to use Genius scan for everything, but as of today it became totally useless. Every image I take with the app is so blurry that none of the text is recognizable even before the program turns everything to black and white. I've tried every setting, checked that my camera is self is not malfunctioning and up to date, and tried reinstalling the app altogether, but I keep having the same issue. Anyone else??
