Genius Scan - PDF Scanner



    Genius Scan - PDF Scanner's review

    Published: 2013-11-07, by Manu Galvez.

    Genius Scan uses your rear-camera to scan any document and convert it to PDF

    • Add images from gallery or back camera
    • Auto-detect borders
    • Automatic enhancing filters
    • Order and unify documents
    • We're missing customizable filters
    • Cannot import other files from your sdcard

    "Let's scan it!"

    Here in Androidzoom we've reviewed some scanner apps. However, the ones that makes the difference are there that apply some added-value features to boost the quality of the final outcome. Genius comes up with some of that tools. Let's focus on them.

    First off, Genius Scan easily detects borders from paper sheets, blackboards, screens or any other gadget that able to be scanned. Likewise, it allows to unify different scanned documents to generate a single PDF file. Let's put some order in your documents.

    In addition, Genius Scan automatically adjusts filters in order to enhance image quality. You can only set it black&white which is really useful for text documents. It would be great if we could control it but, anyway, the outcome is quite acceptable. I haven't mentioned it: you can add documents from your gallery or scan them with your cam. I'm missing an option to import other files from your memory (.pdf, .doc, etc.)

    Despite of this catches, Genius Scan is set in a good-looking layout and it's really easy to use. It's strongest point is auto-detect border and the outcome quality.
