    Would appreciate knowing which scanner app for iPhone
    works the best. Has anyone used both apps and reasons why you like one over the other?

    Can't offer a comparison but I'm very happy with Scanner Pro. I like it's ability to sync with MobileMe, as well as email scanned images. It works well, has a nice UI (IMHO) and hasn't crashed out. Works in grey or colour mode and handles multiple pages. My only niggle is that the PDF files it creates are quite large, even in greyscale, but the quality is very good. Even in relatively poor lighting it optimises the image well to produce readable text from the documents.

    Oh, and it also works with Dropbox and prints docs from the app using Print n Share

    Given it works for me, I've no need (or intention) of trying the other.

    The difference between Scanner Pro and JotNot
    Creates password protected PDF files: Scanner Pro - "yes", JotNot - "no";
    Supports documents in landscape orientation: Scanner Pro - "yes", JotNot - "no";
    Provides access to PDFs from a computer: Scanner Pro - "yes", JotNot - "partly";
    Copies documents to Dropbox: Scanner Pro - "yes", JotNot - "no";
    Allows manual light & contrast correction: Scanner Pro - "yes", JotNot - "no";
    Prints scans via Print n Share: Scanner Pro - "yes", JotNot - "no";

    Thanks for this info! It helped me decide on buying Scanner Pro. I already have Jotnot, but didn't realize that Scanner Pro had those extra features...I think I may switch.

    DocScan has greater image enhancement quality, i.e. shadow removal
    Check out those scanned samples here

    I've tried all three:

    • ScannerPro ($6.99)
    • Jotspot ($1.99)
    • DocScan ($1.99)

    I agree with Tim Chen (who seems to be the author of DocScan), that his product is superior in image quality.

    DocScan - best image quality
    ScannerPro - Best UX/UI

    DocScan is really really awesome at it's core task, scanning. However the UI/UX is really bad/clunky.

    Hopefully Tim can fix this.

    Hope that helps :)
