We all know (or should know) that we can scan documents natively with our iPhone’s camera from the “Notes” application. It is a function which is essential today on our mobile and we surely use it more than once.
But it’s one of those native functions that iOS integrates in a very basic way. I guess this allows developers to “make a living” by building much more complete applications to extend this work depending on the user. One of these is Genius scan
The application developer Grizzly laboratories has just released a major update to its popular iPhone and iPad application “Genius Scan”. He says they used cutting edge AI to better filter the captured image and create a document that looks as close to the original as possible on paper.
In his press release, the creator of the software points out the difference between a basic scanning application and one like Genius Scan which offers high quality results based on next-generation artificial intelligence deep learning
New algorithms to “ clean up ” the scanned image
Based on “Deep learning“, The application uses completely new algorithms which improve the document detection function. This update means that Genius Scan instantly focuses on your documents, even in more difficult contexts.
Now there is better color adjustment, white balance, delicate shadows are handled in your scans, and document edges are cleaned up. The new color filter
Genius Scan analyzes your document content and the naming patterns of your existing documents to display intelligent suggestions for naming your new document. Rename smart documents too detects the actual date of the document, instead of the date you scan the document.
There is a version of Genius Scan free on the App Store with a one-time purchase of 8.99 dollars for Genius Scan + which includes all premium features. Alternatively, you can opt for Genius Cloud storage for 2.99 dollars / month which includes Genius Scan +.
