The long wait is over for the most requested feature of Scanbot, the popular document scanning app developed by Doo.
Since its launch on iOS in April last year, Scanbot has been continually updated by Doo with new features and capabilities, ranging from the ability to rename a scanned document to the quality-enhancing Magic Color Filter. But while those have been welcome additions, there’s one thing that’s apparently been the most highly anticipated among users of the app: support for folders.
And fortunately, support for folders has been added to Scanbot through its latest update, which brings the app to version 5.0.
Folders are finally here
More than one million documents per month are scanned using Scanbot, according to Doo. And for many users like me, Scanbot is an app frequently used for any number of purposes, from keeping copies of invoices to collecting recipes. The ability to sort documents into folders, then, is a big boon.
Previously, Scanbot only listed scans in a single feed grouped by recency — an arrangement that called for better organization.
But with the arrival of Scanbot 5.0, scanned documents can now be easily managed in folders and new documents can be scanned directly into them.
Folders are synced with iCloud Drive
As implemented in Scanbot, folders are synced exclusively with iCloud Drive, making them and their contents accessible across your iOS, Mac and PC devices. But folder syncing also works alongside Scanbot’s automatic uploading of individual scans to other cloud services such as Dropbox and Google Drive.
Note that support for folders is available only to users who have upgraded to Scanbot Pro.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad running iOS 8.0 or later, Scanbot is available on the App Store for free, with a one-time Pro in-app purchase offered at $2.99 for unlocking the app’s more advanced features, including the newly added support for folders.
Scanbot for education and business is also available on the App Store for $6.99, with all features already unlocked.
Scanbot 5.0 also features full compliance with Apple’s new API for right-to-left languages such as Arabic.
