Pros and cons of FineScanner - PDF Document Scanner App Free + OCR app for iPhone and iPad

FineScanner - PDF Document Scanner App Free + OCR app good for

This app does a great job scanning books. If you find yourself needing to digitize a few pages or even chapters, its Book Scan feature makes quick work of any length book.
Awesome on the go app. Helped me a lot fir my work. Easy, fast and convenient!
This power house is better than most of the big fully sized apps. I recommend this app to any professional on the hook it up with your printers email and you are good to go.
This scanner works extremely well. It was easy to figure out and uploaded my documents to cloud storage without any problems!
I use it all the time for receipts, menus, other documents I need yo save. Who needs a scanner any longer? This is it!
Great app use it every time I need it. good copies all the time

Some bad moments

I paid too much for this. I wanted it for book scanning. Does a terrible job and even uploads after 10 scans or so. It should store the whole book on your phone and upload when finished. I also own the Abby FineReader Mac OCR. Not any better. Years ago, I purchased Abby Fine Reader for my work and it worked wonders. Scanning seems to be much worse now. I would not recommend wasting your money.
I wanted to scan a book, so I purchased the BookScan add-on. It was a very frustrating experience. Pros * Splits scans into two pages. Works most of the time. Cons * Images have to be uploaded and are split in the server. They take a really long time, maybe almost one hour for a 250 pages book. Also, the images are not uploaded in the background. You have to stop scanning and wait for it. * Sometimes (quite often) it wont split the scans. Theres no option to reprocess the images. The only option is to delete them and rescan them again. * You might want to proceed with the scan in small batches and verify once in a while whether the pages are being scanned and split correctly. Now to get to the last pages you just scanned, you have to scrool with your finger, one by one, all previous pages you have scanned. Theres no "past page" button or quick access. Imagine this with a 250 pages book...
I paid for the suite of services from ABBEY and am now mad I paid. I thought the scanner would come in handy as I work in insurance and often need to scan or copy documents while on the road. I scanned a few policies using this app and the result has been a nightmare. Instead of considering the scan one PDF it stores the files almost like individual images. A 20 page document turned into a 100MB PDF! That is ridiculous and it causes trouble when trying to email, print, work with, etc. This scanner is brutal and not worth the money. Im going to buy a portable, desk top scanner now.
Every time I use the app, Im pestered for a review. Anything nice I might have is erased by the incessant begging.
Converting to searchable PDF is a miss. It does this thing where it looks the text is was printed twice. Not sure. In addition, it takes a long while for it to convert a PDF file. A 20 page PDF took me about 5-10minutes to finish converting. Im using an iPad Pro 9.7. If your looking for an app that converts pad files to scannable PDF. Try Scanbot. The app converts at half the speed quicker with no inconsistencies.
Own the desktop version. Not willing to pay $2.50 every single month.
