Looking for a portable scanner app? Want to be able to scan photos, documents, and almost anything on the go? Then the Scanbot | PDF Scanner app from developer doo GmbH is just the perfect app for you!


Scanbot | PDF Scanner is an app that will replace your traditional document scanner with nothing more than your tablet or smart phone.

Simply load up the app, follow the simple app instructions, scan your document using the simple onscreen interface, tap a few optimization buttons (color, grayscale, black and white), and voila!

Forget having to purchase a big, bulky scanner! Scan just about any document with Scanbot; receipts, recipes, invoices, contracts, boarding passes, IDs and more. It really takes the haphazard nature of taking raw pictures of your docs and turns it into a professional quality, 200 dpi image that users should feel comfortable sending to others.

Furthermore, the export features are excellent: Scanbot allows you to email, print, and even share to the cloud.

Overall, I was very impressed with Scanbot. It worked quite well for me and I had no problems doing my “tablet scanning” instead of having to use an old fashioned scanner. The “print” option is great too, if you have a printer that supports connecting to your mobile device. All in all, a very impressive app!

Appearance and Layout

Scanbot  Android App Review

Scanbot – PDF Scanner rocks a professional layout. It is clear the developer didn’t mess around when creating this app; they have gone with a slick interface and sharp graphics that really look great.

I also like the camera formatting view when it takes pictures of the documents; it takes the docs and strips them down a true “scanned” feel, unlike my simple photos and make-shift scanning techniques of the past.

It’s also a layout that is truly easy to navigate, even for the first-time user. Finally, the optimization options and the signing features are well-implemented, allowing for great finished appearance of the documents.


I have frequently used both my digital camera and my tablet to quickly snap photos of important documents. Scanbot – PDF Scanner makes this process even more straight-forward, while offering even more professional results.

Sure, it’s a couple of bucks, but it is totally worth it. The high-quality layout, excellent user options and outstanding finished image scans all make this a solid app.

As we continue to move to digital from paper, it’s easy to forget about those times when you need a scan of a hard copy document. Scanbot is here to help; don’t be caught without it for all your scanning needs.

Scan3Scanbot | PDF Scanner requires 4.0.3 and up. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
