Genius Scan - PDF Scanner

The Grizzly Labs
Genius Scan is a scanner app in your pocket. Quickly scan your paper documents on the go and export them as multi-page PDF files.

*** Apple App of the Week *** 20+ million users *** 1000s of small businesses ***

Place any document in front of your device’s camera: our scanner app automatically recognizes the paper against the background, crops it, and cleans up the result. You obtain a crisp, legible scan. Batch scanning lets you scan dozens of pages in a matter of seconds. Powerful tools help you organize, share, or archive your documents.
