First and foremost, Scanbot 3.0 adds support for two-way syncing via iCloud Drive, Apple’s new iCloud-based file hosting service. Just go to Scanbot’s settings section to enable iCloud Drive integration in the app.
The new version of Scanbot also features improved speed and accuracy, improved grayscale and color filters, and a new magnetic manual document cropping feature that automatically snaps the cropping borders to the sides of documents.
Furthermore, Scanbot 3.0 introduces passcode protection with support for Touch ID on iOS 8. Note, though, that this new feature is part of Scanbot’s Pro upgrade. Available via in-app purchase for $4.99, Scanbot Pro also includes optical character recognition, smart file naming, and themes.
