What is Adobe Scan?

Adobe Scan is a free document scanning app from Adobe for smartphone, with integrated OCR technology to instantly recognize printed text and handwriting.

What are features of Adobe Scan?

Scan anything, anywhere, anytime

Capture forms, notes, and business cards with this mobile scanner. The Adobe Scan scanning app can be used as a library book scanner or business receipt scanner and even lets you scan multi-page documents and save.

Content scannable and reusable

The Adobe Scan to PDF scanner makes any content scannable and reusable. Free, built-in optical character recognition (OCR) lets you reuse scanned content by creating a high-quality PDF that you can work with in Adobe Acrobat Reader.


Remove and edit imperfections, erase stains, marks, creases, even handwriting.

Quickly find documents in photos

This powerful scanning app automatically finds documents and receipts in your photos and turns them into PDF scans, so you don’t have to. Automatic OCR turns text into content you can edit, resize and reuse documents.

Save BUSINESS CARDS to Contacts

Scanning business cards turns Adobe Scan into a fast business card scanner and reader. Contact information will be automatically extracted while using the business card scanner, so you can quickly add to and organize your device contacts — no typing needed.
