What you need to know

  • Scanner Pro has a new update out that leverages AI to help organize your scans.
  • Scanned documents are organized into categories based on their contents.
  • Categories include Receipt, Invoice, Book, Passport, and more.

Readdle's popular Scanner Pro has a new update available in the App Store, with this new release leveraging the power of AI to help people organize their documents more easily.

This new update automatically checks the content of your scans and then categorizes them based on what it finds — removing the need to manually do it yourself.

We understand how tiring and time-consuming it would be to manually organize the hundreds of scanned documents in Scanner Pro into folders and carefully name them so they're easier to find. That's why we're introducing Smart Categories in Scanner Pro. Scanner Pro now automatically recognizes & labels your documents by category, so they're easier to locate when you're looking for them.

Scanner Pro will put your scans into one of a number of different categories, including:

  • Receipt
  • Invoice
  • Form
  • Book
  • ID Card
  • Business Card
  • Passport
  • Magazine
  • Music Sheet
  • Note
  • Other

Couple the organization with search and it'll be easier than ever to find the documents you're looking for whenever you need them.

The updated Scanner Pro is now available from the App Store as a free download. Some features require the $19.99 per year Scanner Pro Plus subscription, however. There's also a seven-day free trial available for those who want to take those features for a spin, too.
