There are many apps that let you use your smartphone camera as a scanner to create PDF files and share those files. Which one is best? Here are review summaries of the top 11 apps for Android, follow the links to the full reviews.
Note: All videos in this series show the same task for each app. I edited out pop-up advertisements, sped up portions and made other small edits to fit in a 60 second video. Office Lens and Genius Scan did not require any edits. I was able to perform the complete process in less than one minute, in one continuous take. In fact, Office Lens only took 45 seconds. Many of the others required double that time or more.
These two apps are our favorites. After extensive testing, these are the ones we use.
Some of these apps may have features you need. We rank these as “the rest”, not in the top-tier.
