    i much prefer notability even with some new features to notes in iOS 11, but the document scanner looks really useful. Currently I'm using Dropbox as a document scanner which I then share sheet to notability, but with apple notes using arkit, I feel like the scanner might be better.

    What do you think?

    The scanner works, I have used it several times. My only complaint is that it takes some effort to get the scan out of notes and into something else like an email. I would like to see the feature expanded to other apps besides notes so I can sign a document and email it back via scan directly into a message. Unless I'm missing something.

    So I couldn't just scan a document and export it to notability? That's disappointing

    Just FYI, Apple Notes does not use ARKit for document scanning.

    I've heard multiple sources it does for document placement and alignment. Hmm
