Scan HIGH-QUALITY

In addition, various color modes, auto optimization and blur-reduction help you to get the most out of your scans.

Scan QUICKLY
Scanbot is blazing fast. Just hold your iPhone over any document, receipt or whiteboard and it takes only a second to scan a page and save it as a PDF or JPG. Thanks to Scanbot's latest technology, the edges of the document are automatically identified so that only the document itself is scanned. Scanbot captures the best possible image in the perfect moment.

Scan ANYTHING
Scanbot works on all occasions with all kind of media. Scan any kind of document such as standard paper documents, business cards, receipts, notes, whiteboards or post-its. Scanbot helps you save the documents that are important for you and get rid of paper clutter. No matter whether you are at work or on holidays, Scanbot is with you.

Scan to the CLOUD
Scanned documents can be emailed, printed or uploaded to a supported cloud drive. If you enable automatic upload and Scanbot will automatically save your scans to your preferred cloud service right in the moment your PDF scan has been created. With Scanbot you can upload to the following cloud drives:

Other Comments: 

This app just went free today December 11th 2014, I saw it wasn't listed on applevis so thought I would take the chance to try it.
I am glad I didn't waste any money on it, although of course no mainstream app will be better than knfb reader its always good to list inaccessible apps so those who can't afford knfb reader or who are looking for something cheaper don't waste money.
Normally this app is payed so that's why I have listed it as payed as its a holiday promotion.
