Scanner Pro for iOS has today received a hefty update. The latest update brings the app to version 7 and includes a host of new features, including text recognition, quality improvements, workflows, and much more.

The biggest new feature of Scanner Pro 7 is text recognition. Now, users can scan a document using their iPhone and Scanner Pro can automatically convert the scan into a text document that is able to be edited, copied, and selected. This feature is huge for people who want to modify the content they scan in, such as documents, notes for school, and more.

Scanner Pro 7 also makes several improvements to the quality of scans. The app includes improved distortion correction, so whenever you scan a document, it’s as clear as possible. Furthermore, there’s improved color processing to better handle documents with images.

You can also now set up workflows within Scanner Pro 7 to quickly do things such as send an email with the document to a predetermined recipient, upload it to Dropbox, or save it to a folder. With workflow support, these functions can be performed in just one tap.

Finally, there are a variety of interface tweaks throughout the application that the developers say make it faster and easier to use.

Scanner Pro 7 is available for $3.99 on the App Store for new users and is a free update to existing users.

What’s New in Version 7.0 We are super excited to announce a major update to the most popular scanning app for iPhone and iPad.

Scanner Pro 7 is MUCH better and all existing customers are getting it for free.
