Adobe launched its document scanning app this week named as Adobe Scan. The newly launched app comes with Adobe Document Cloud integration. That makes it idiosyncratic from already existing scanning apps on Google play store and Apple’s app store. While the app is free to utilize, users will have to create an Adobe ID to get access to its features. App is available for Android and iOS.

While the Adobe Scan practically works like almost other scanning apps available on app store, it offers the option to sharpen the scanned content and touch up scans or photos from your camera roll. You can scan documents consist if several pages and save the scans as PDF files with the help of Adobe Scan app. One of the key features offered by the Adobe Scan is text recognition, replicating the previously offered Microsoft Lens feature, which allows users to scan images into editable documents. This accessibility is indeed very handy for working professionals as well as students.

“The free Adobe Scan app turns your device into a powerful portable scanner that recognises text automatically (OCR). Turn anything – receipts, notes, documents, pictures, business cards, whiteboards – into an Adobe PDF with content you can reuse,” the company stated in the app description on Google Play.

“Adobe Scan represents a radical re-imagination of how to capture your most important document content,” Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe, was quoted as saying in the company’s release.

“Adobe invented PDF creation for PCs, and with Adobe Scan we’re doing the same for a mobile-first world. As part of Adobe Document Cloud, new apps like Adobe Scan integrate with services in Adobe Sign and Acrobat DC, offering a modern document experience with unprecedented value to our customers,” Lamkin said.
