Genius Scan – PDF Scanner:
Genius Scan is another iPhone scanner app that lets you scan documents, receipts, etc. with ease. It’s a fairly simple scanning app for iPhone where documents can be scanned by clicking on the camera icon on the screen which then can be saved either in JPEG or PDF formats. Hand written documents, memos and notes can also be scanned the same way and shared easily. Scanned documents can be viewed on a PC also, using Wi-Fi sharing. But as compared to most scanning apps in the App store, it offers very little to the user. Most of the features are offered in a costly upgrade to the pro-version at the cost of ₹420 with features like export to Google Drive, One Note etc. and import pdf documents from other apps. These features are available for free in most of the iPhone scanner apps and thus in this respect it falls behind others. All in all, a good app for scanning but lacks many features.

It automatically detects the document in the image and excludes the non-relevant items from the image.
