What makes it Genius?

Most people download Genius Scan as a substitute of scanner. It requires nothing more than your Smartphone, which you will carry everywhere you go. So, it is more convenient compared to portable and flatbed scanners. You can avoid paying for such expensive devices. As the app comes with advanced features like smart page detection, image enhancement, brightness adjustments, perspective correction etc, scanning time is also considerably less compared to real scanners.

Genius Scan algorithm can automatically detect the corners of page frame, and perform crops in order to avoid unnecessary areas. You don’t have to take perfect level photos as this automatically corrects the page perspective also. This cropped photo is subjected to post-processing, which will produce your desired results either in color or black-and-white.

Genius Scan keeps record of all scans in its own gallery. You can title or tag each scan for organizing them. You can later find those files using powerful search function. Genius Scan respects your privacy and therefore no post-processing is carried out on third-party server. Developer recommends sharing document over Wifi so that you can access it easily from computer. You can print the document through AirPrint.
