Adobe Scan is a free mobile scanner and OCR tool

Adobe Scan is a free application for Google Android and Apple iOS operating systems that supports scanning any document using the device's built-in cameras. Apart from that, it is also capable of detecting text using optical character recognition so that it may be processed further.

I looked at the Android version of Adobe Scan: PDF & Business Card Scanner with OCR, the full name of the application, for this review.

Adobe Scan requires that you create an account or use an existing one; you may use a Google or Facebook account for that, an Adobe account, or create a new one. Once that is out of the way, it takes you directly to the scan interface.

Note that you may select different scan modes that it supports. Next to the scanning of documents, you may use it to scan business cards (and turn them into readable data that you may import to Contacts right away), forms, or whiteboards.

The application is dead-easy to use which is one of its greatest strengths. Just point it at any document that you want to scan using the mobile device and hit the capture button to do so. You need to make sure that the document is visible in its entirety but don't need to pay special attention to the document borders as Adobe Scan is capable of identifying those automatically.

The automatic detection worked really well during tests but you may adjust borders manually should it fail (which it never did when I tested it).

Scans may be accessed in the app once they have been processed. Processing did not take long on the Google Pixel 3a smartphone and the quality of the scan was very good.

The viewer displays a number of tools at the bottom that you may use, and you may save the scan as a PDF file at any point in time.

Apart from adding pages (to create multi-page documents) and reordering pages, you may crop and rotate scans, change color filters (e.g. from a colored scan to grayscale), or use the cleanup tool to fill an area with a color (e.g. for removing information or smudges).

Text is detected automatically by the application. You may save scans to the local device at any time or share them using email or other means. Note that the share option creates a link to the document on Adobe Cloud and that anyone with that link may access the document. You may prefer to save the document locally to the device and attach it to emails or chats manually.
