Wirecutter Weekly: The App That Completely Changed How I Do Taxes: Reviews by Wirecutter | A New York Times Company
Are you a last-minute scrambler when it comes to taxes? Here’s your official warning—you have eight days left. My office is now pretty much paperless. I made the switch to scanning everything with my phone and shredding it. One of my Wirecutter colleagues recommended a mobile scanning app to me a few years ago, and it totally changed how I do taxes and receipts for filing expenses. No more digging around for papers or fishing for crumpled, illegible receipts at the bottom of my bag.
Our printing/scanning guru Ben Keough recommends Scanbot Pro for both Android and iOS. I talked to a couple of tax experts about going paperless and I realized I hadn’t been taking advantage of one of the best features on mobile scanning apps—optical character recognition (OCR). “Once I scan a document from paper, I turn on text recognition so that when I search for it I search not only for the document but for any element of the document I can recall,” said Gil Charney, director at the Tax Institute at H&R Block. (Disclosure: We recommend both H&R Block’s free tax service and TurboTax in our guide to the best tax software.) For more on how to organize and back up your digital tax files so you don’t have to scramble next year, read our post on how to go paperless in your home office. And if you think you may need to hire a tax pro, we have some advice on that too.

Scan even more efficiently with Scanbot 7 | iMore
The newest version of Scanbot includes filter adjustments, scan merging capabilities, and improved search tools, giving it a leg up on Apple's native scanning app.
In its first update since Apple introduces its native document scanning app in Notes, Scanbot is offering more features than ever.
For those of you unfamiliar with Scanbot, it's an award-winning scanner app that allows you to create high-quality scans of documents, receipts, sketchbooks, QR codes, and more. Once you've scanned them in, you can then turn them into tidy PDFs or JPGs which you can perfect with filters and upload immediately Google Drive, iCloud, Dropbox, or wherever else you keep your files. Scanbot 7, released today, takes this concept and builds upon it even more than in previous iterations of the app, giving you even more control over your scans.
Scanbot - Free with IAP - Download now
Now, when you apply one of Scanbot's five enhancement filters to a scanned document, you can meticulously adjust them so they're the of highest quality possible. Each filter has three sliders that allow you to fine-tune the brightness, color, and contrast of your document to make sure everything is visible and clear. If you've ever received a poorly-scanned, washed out handout in school that obscured parts of the text you were supposed to read for homework, then you know just how important it is to have the ability to account for differences in the documents you're trying to capture.
In addition to filter adjustments, Scanbot 7 now lets you string existing scans together into one cohesive PDF easily and efficiently without ever having to leave the app. This feature, called Merge, is incredibly handy for when you're scanning documents with multiple pages or if you want to create a "booklet" (so to speak) of information from different sources. You can even rearrange the order of the documents to best fit your needs. Once you've selected all the scans you'd like to join together, you can choose to replace the originals with the now-merged PDF or save the merged version as an entirely new file while keeping the original scans as well.
Finally, Scanbot's search feature has been updated for Scanbot 7, and now features search suggestions so that you can find what you're looking for more quickly than ever before. The devs also added a handful of new interface theme options like High Contrast that feature pure white and pure black, taking full advantage of the iPhone X's gorgeous OLED display.
If you're looking for a more full-featured scanning app than the one that comes with Notes, you can download Scanbot for free by tapping on the link above. And, if you decide you dig it, you can upgrade Scanbot Pro for $6.99.

App of the Week: Scanbot (and Scanner Pro) — Robby Burns
This week’s App of the Week is Scanbot! 
As years pass, I solidify my mainstay productivity apps. I might try 100 todo or scanner apps, but many of the ones I depend on have been on my home screen for years. For a very long time, Readdle’s Scanner Pro was my scanner app of choice for getting documents and sheet music from the real world into my digital database. Scanbot has recently come to challenge it. 
Rather than explain all of the features, I have simply embedded a quick screencast below that shows it off. Both Scanner Pro and Scanbot allow the user to very quickly get paper into their phone, make the text searchable, neaten up the edges, and prepare the document for sharing. Both apps make it easy to customize ways to send finished documents to specific locations in your file system. Scanner Pro does this through custom workflows and Scanbot does it by remembering my most commonly saved locations in my iCloud and Google Drive (you can see this on the last screen of the screencast). But Scanbot has a few nice touches that ultimately push me over the edge, especially considering how tedious scanning documents with a phone can be...
Getting the final scan into a particular location is smoother for me in Scanbot because it always has my most recently saved locations one tap away. I also really like the way that when selecting the edges of the paper, Scanbot has handles that drag an entire edge, whereas Scanner Pro only has handles in the four corners. Notice in the video how Scanbot even detects the edge when I get close and automatically snaps to the edge of the page. Note that both of these apps have an automatic mode that detects the edges for you and bypasses this step. I just wanted to demo the neat snapping feature in the video.
Both apps also create a folder in iCloud Drive that will automatically save all snapped documents so that you can instantly run over to another device like your Mac and get to your new files.
Scanner Pro does have a few unique features. First, its custom workflows are very powerful and can do multiple things with your finished PDF (for example: save a document to Evernote with specific tags, add it to a specific folder in Dropbox, and email it to a coworker all in one tap). Second, it can scan your camera roll for things that look like documents (maybe a business card or a page you shot on your camera in a hurry) and transform them into PDFs on the spot. Third, it integrates with Readdle's other great productivity apps, like PDF Expert.

🚩 » Why do I have to pay for Pro Features? Please make them available for free! «
Today we would like to address a fundamental question which we receive quite often…
We are continuously working on offering a high quality app that’s easy to use and delivers the best results. Besides making sure that the app is working as intended we’re also adding new features on a regular basis. This is only possible with a lot of knowledge and energy from a dedicated team, giving their best to provide you with a great mobile scanning experience.
No service is really free
Most of us use a lot of free services from Apple, Google and many other companies. But actually those services and apps are not really free. You are just paying for the service differently. These companies found feasible ways to easily make up for their expenses. Two very common methods are ads or providing user data to third parties.

Best scanner app for iPhone and iPad: Scanbot — The Sweet Setup
It’s the 21st century, and yet there’s still so much paper flooding into our lives: receipts, office forms, bills, letters home from our children’s school, and on and on. Owning a dedicated document scanner can help, but it’s not always nearby when we need it. Luckily, ever since the iPhone’s camera gained sufficient resolution to capture crisp text, there have been a number of document scanning apps that have put the possibility of going paperless much more in reach. After testing a number of document scanner apps, our pick for the best scanner app on iPhone is Scanbot.

ScannerPro or Scanbot Pro
I "scan" a lot of documents with my iPhone because I hate to accumulate paper and a lot of the time I'm far from my ScanSnap. I've used just about every scanning app available on the iPhone but I've settled on ScannerPro. I have no particular allegiance to ScannerPro so I gave the new version of Scanbot Pro a good try. I'm sticking with ScannerPro.
ScannerPro is simply faster to scan a document in my hands. Both apps attempt to find the page edges and adjust focus, but ScannerPro was about ten times faster. Scanbot often sat there declaring that it was adjusting the perspective or locating the page.
