scannerproReaddle's popular document scanning app Scanner Pro has been named Apple's app of the Week, and as a result, it is available for free for the first time since its initial 2011 release.

Scanner Pro is one of the most highly rated scanning apps in the App Store and is designed to turn the iPhone or the iPad into a portable scanner for documents, receipts, notes, photos, and more. The app removes shadows, sharpens scans, and corrects perspective in order to make scans as "readable as possible."

It also utilizes edge detection in order to create fast, accurate scans, and it stores scans as PDF files that can be uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, or emailed/printed.

Scanner Pro transforms your iPhone and iPad into portable scanners. It allows you to scan receipts, whiteboards, paper notes, or any multipage document.

Scanned documents can be emailed and printed, uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote, or simply saved on the iPhone/iPad.

While Scanner Pro has been priced as low as $1.99 during sales, it typically costs $6.99 to download. For the next week, it will be available from the App Store at no cost. [Direct Link]

Curious why this popular App has only 34 reviews?

because this version was released on 12/27/13. like all apps, when a new version is pushed out, reviews are cleared out. tap "All Versions" to see the 7,786 ratings...

Cool. I 've just downloaded it.

I seriously thought about downloading it a while back but had reservations...then saw it recently go on ale and thought some more but hesitated.

Thank you Apple.

Wow... amazingly clean app. This will be useful when I'm on my awesome international spy missions! :D

Based on what I've seen so far from the "12 Gifts" app, it looks like Apple is focusing on entertainment titles for that promotion, rather than productivity tools or things like menstruation tracking apps.

I downloaded Scanner Pro a couple of weeks ago and should have done it sooner. It is first rate. I particularly like the way it can automatically upload document scans to Evernote. I can scan the things that seem important to remember and search for them later in Evernote. Very handy.

I purchased this app several months ago. It works pretty well. A few updates back, the functionality on snapping the scan seems to have a changed. It would tell you to hold still and a second or two would pass and take the scan. Now it tells you to hold still and it sometimes takes 15 seconds before it will take the scan. I think it has something to do with the border detection but I'm just guessing. I've tried changing all the option in different combinations but not change to the long delay some scans have.

You can try to reinstall the app. If it doesn't help, please send us an e-mail to rdsupport@readdle.com

"Turboscan" is a much better app. The Scanner Pro is just a regular camera app with a zoom + black/white filter. Turboscan is like a copy machine/real scanner.

You are kidding, right?

Cool.

But, explain to me why this isn't one of the "12 gifts" freebies?
