TurboScan, the popular alternative to Readdle's Scanner Pro, has received an update adding optimization for Apple's iOS 7, along with a number of further useful performance enhancements. The app supports the iPhone and iPod touch, and can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99. Though Scanner Pro, which carries a $6.99 price tag, is indeed an effective application when it comes to "scanning" documents using an iDevice's camera, TurboScan offers users a similar experience for a few dollars less (we should note that a more minimalistic, less feature-heavy app from Readdle, Scanner Mini, is of course available free of charge for casual users). However, since iOS 7 launched, TurboScan users had been forced to suffer the app's pre-iOS 7 interface. That is, until now. Fortunately for iPhone and iPod touch users running iOS 7, TurboScan has received a glorious update adding support for the new mobile OS, along with a user interface overhaul. The application now looks great running alongside iOS 7, and features a more minimalistic interface along with support for the mobile operating system's icons and keyboard. But that's not all. Besides iOS 7 optimization, developer Piksoft has also made a number of performance enhancements to TurboScan. As outlined in the application's release notes, these include:
Furthermore, a number of bug fixes and more minor enhancements have also been made to the application. TurboScan 2.6.1 can be downloaded in the App Store for $1.99, and as mentioned, the application is optimized for the iPhone and iPod touch.
