"A mobile document scanner"

Reviewed by / Dec 02, 2014

CamScanner uses your Android rear camera to scan documents


CamScanner turns your Android into a document scanner. You only need to point the camera to the document and take a photo from the app. Then, CamScanner provides you with different tools to crop, adjust and enhance the looking of the document to make it feel as it were truly scanned. It even allows you to create multiple page documents in different formats.

There are also interesting post-editing features such as OCR, commenting on documents, adding watermark and annotations.


The user-friendly interface and neat design. In addition, the "auto-adjust" and "auto-enhance" editing options help obtain better looking results. Extra features such as commenting and sharing with third-party services (Dropbox, Evernote...) add a collaborative layer.


Ads are intrusive in the Lite version.

    Muy buena aplicación. Faltaría un tutorial donde indique mas detalladamente no solo la aplicación, sino también donde guarda los documentos y demás detalles de la operatoria del mismo.

    Very easy to use, captures the doc and highlights it, can adjust the shot you're capturing, comes in very handy.

    I was hoping you could move the camera over the document to scan it a bit at a time then have it pasted together but as it is it has to take a whole picture. not accurate at all like that.

    I don't need conventional scanner. I scan any docs on mobile. Agreement, receipts etc I scan and email directly from my phone. Very helpful.
