CamScanner -Phone PDF Creator Review
CamScanner is an app for scanning documents with the camera of your smartphone. It is available for free on Android and iOS and has more than 100 million downloads in Google Play with an average rating of 4.3.
The interface of CamScanner is pretty good. It is very simple when it comes to basic tasks and is comparably easy to learn with advanced features. The features are properly categorized by different menus, which makes the navigation very clear.
It might require you to perform some additional taps and swipes to reach a specific feature, but it makes the interface much better and lighter. You will not get dozens of buttons on every screen with CamScanner, which is definitely great.
As for the features, CamScanner has lots to offer. There is a basic scanning feature selling the app, and it is great. The scanning is very accurate and easy to use, making it extremely simple and quick to scan a document with your phone.
However, scanning is not the only thing you can do with this app. It also allows you to quickly edit content, convert photos into PDF, Word, or other file formats, share files via e-mail, OneDrive, and many other cloud services.
The algorithms of CamScanner are pretty smart and do most stuff automatically: once the photo is made, the app instantly selects the edges of the document and recognizes the text.
The usability of CamScanner is almost perfect. The app is incredibly easy to use for basic stuff: it will not take you more than five minutes to figure out how the scanning and sharing work. It might require a bit more time to learn advanced features, but compared to other apps, they are also designed well.
The compatibility is pretty average with CamScanner. The system requirements for Android depending on the devices, and with iOS, you will need a version 12.0 or later installed. The supported devices list is rather wide, but the app seems not to be perfectly optimized for budget models.
Conclusion: Makes It Easier
CamScanner will definitely save you some time on trying to take a good photo of the document. It generates scans of good quality and is easy to use, so it is a great choice for making basic scans once in a while. Despite the fact it offers some advanced features as well, you might want to look for a more professional tool if you are planning to work with scans regularly.
- Lots of editing and sharing features;
- Extremely easy to perform basic features;
