Uses official Apple document scanner

The app uses Apple-provided screen to scan documents ensuring high-quality output and reliability. Same scanner is found in the Notes app for example. It supports multiple scans in one-go, edge adjustments, filters and more.

Text Recognition

Text recognition uses Apple VisionKit framework and gets better with every iOS release thanks to hard work by Apple's engineers. Many languages are supported and can be customized per-scan to get the best possible results.

The app applies custom formatting to recognized pieces of text to try to present in as nice format possible.
