Good hardware, poor software
Every month or two my ScanSnap is 1500 will stop connecting to both of my iPads (it works with my iPhone). A few days later it will connect again. There is clearly a problem with the iPad software, but Fujitsu seems either unwilling or unable to fix this. Quite a shame, since I do like the scanner itself. Is anyone at Fujitsu listening?

Works As Expected
I approached the Scansnap iOS app with considerable skepticism. Experience has taught me that software designed for peripherals like scanners and printers is often subpar, a trend that seems to have persisted since the 90s. Moreover, mobile apps designed to control hardware are typically as pleasant as a dumpster fire, often leading to sheer frustration. With these expectations, I braced myself for an hour of tedious troubleshooting. However, to my surprise and delight, the app proved to be a rare exception. Drawing on my IT expertise, I started by power cycling my ix1600 and installed the app. In just a few minutes, I was connected to my wife’s scanner without a hitch. I managed to scan multiple 15-page documents, attaching them to an email directly from the app, and sent them using the native Mail app. The entire process was astonishingly efficient, taking no more than five minutes. Kudos to the team for making an application for a peripheral that works! I very rarely leave reviews on anything but, I was impressed enough to do so. Please keep up the quality control. Notes: Scanner: IX1600 - previously setup via macOS Did not try to edit any settings while scanning the documents. Therefore, cannot attest to any of the other features.

Limited connectivity
Does not connect to iPad Pro via direct USB, only slow & insecure WiFi (especially bad in a public or shared environment). Even on the very recent & expensive iX1600, with the latest firmware & appropriate cable, when both devices can see each other according to their device info, not even the most basic scanning operation is supported. (Thus one more reason we won’t get away from Macbooks any time soon even with similar performance…) Due to privacy and security concerns especially when handling sensitive documents, I can not comment on this application’s functionality beyond this. Not the least because ANY WiFi connectivity on the iX1600 would open the door to the internet & uncontrolled “cloud” & “diagnostic” leaks (even when opting out), with little to no recourse to ensure security short of a corporate-level firewall.

ScanSnap app a huge help for people with disabilities but one bug
A good app that mostly reduces the need for using the ScanSnap home software on a desktop. I rely on this app to help me organize my mail, bills and medical documents due to my disability, which saved me so much energy and a life saver to open the app and press scan. But my only request is to fix the bug in the app where I cannot scan longer documents and it says it’s jammed but it isn’t. The ScanSnap home software says to hold the scan button down on the machine for 3 seconds for documents longer than a certain length and it works on my laptop with the ScanSnap home software, but it does not work with the app. I believe it had no problem scanning longer documents before. Not sure what happened. Please fix this issue. Thank you

Please Fix Sync to OneDrive
Either stop advertising syncing to OneDrive or fix it once and for all. Works for a while until one day it crashes when you attempt to upload a scanned PDF file to OneDrive Personal or Business versions. Once that happens, ScanSnap will crash Every time it is launched during the refresh process. The only way to partially recover is to delete the App, re-install and Not configure the Sync to OneDrive feature. This occurs when using an iX500 or iX1500. No problems when syncing to DropBox but OneDrive is my Cloud Storage of choice, as it is for most users of Office 365 and it features 1TB of cloud storage. Please, Please fix this long-term bug with ScanSnap.

How about this for a review? I’m literally ready to tear my hair out trying to set up this piece of junk to work on my wifi. I somehow set it up at home and now I moved to a new location and a new wifi and it stopped working. Setting it up for a new wifi is a total pain. Why does it want me to connect it to my PC? Why do I need to download some junk installer to my computer to make it work? Isn’t it supposed to be a wifi scanner? Ahhhhhhhhhhh!

Hardware A+ Software C
Make no mistake about it... best hardware on the market. I can honestly say I’ve have sold at least 50 ix500’s the last 3 years. It works incredibly well. Just got the ix1500 and must say I think you did it again. The software, gets a C because I works reliably. A few areas to improve... - I find it hard to believe we don’t have an iPad version. I do most of my scanning from it. - Support for the iCloud would be logical. - Siri Shortcuts support would be amazing!!! - It would be cool if you somehow made it possible for 3rd party devs to scan.

App stopped working
After changing my backup service, the app refuse to stay open. After restarting both the app and next the iPad…nothing works. I also try deleting the app, then reinstall and got the same thing. I can’t change the cloud service that obviously have a problem connecting because the app won’t stay open.

Worst app
It’s already the end of the year! When are you going to fix the app? It crashes immediately when opened! I need to use the device I paid for!! All of a sudden wasn’t connecting to one drive. Then seemed like it was syncing - now it just crashes and does nothing. Can’t scan and can’t access files already scanned on phone. So annoying.

Discontinued support for ix500
Questioning the ethicality of this business. They discontinued mobile support for the ix500 model that I just purchased brand new last week. Is their future objective to force everyone into buying a new scanner because of software?? Wondering how long I’ll have before they also discontinue PC support and I’m stuck with a $420 paperweight.

Never Worked with 2022 IPad Pro
I was never able to get software to recognize SnapScan iX1500 via Wi-Fi. All setup per instructions provided by app. Wi-Fi snooper could see the scanner on Wi-Fi. I tried to set scanner address manually, but this entry was ignored. Pretty useless app.

The mobile connection never works. I am experience with network administration, but now work in accounting. I have recently been promoted to CFO/Controlled so I will advocate that we abandon Fujitsu products in favor of vendors with functioning products.

Scan Snap used to be reliable and now it flat out stinks. Won’t connect to wireless devices even after troubleshooting, reconnecting, restarting, etc. I used to recommend to highly but now I’m in search of a new product.

It works but the UI is abhorrent
For what it is, it works. It scans the document to the iOS device. Two stars for basic functionality. The problem is that that's where it ends. If you use it enough on a daily basis, you soon realize this app is designed (if at all) by someone who does not use it. Case in point A: if a document fails to scan for any reason (fold detected, for example) the app asks you for a choice to discard or keep the scan. This is great except your choice doesn't make a difference. Case in point B: you can't move more than one file at a time to Dropbox or other cloud services from the app. In fact, you can't even "move" a file. It's always a copy operation so if you have scanned 200 files with your decide, you have to copy 200 individual files, one at a time, and remember to delete each one. Fujitsu, your hardware rocks but your software is terrible. I hope for the day when you stop relying on contractors and build a capable development team in-house. Lastly, the app is fugly. It hurts my feelings just by looking at the app icon on my home screen. Again, hardware rocks but software is terrible.

Wireless Scanning Is A Snap
Today I received notice from ScanSnap that the iX500 scanner can now scan wirelessly from a Mac. I immediately updated the firmware and turned on this feature. I didn't even know a WiFi card was built in! Later, I downloaded this iPhone app and tried it out. It works great! When you have the app open it takes priority over the Mac scanning app. You get the option of opening your scanned documents in Dropbox, Evernote, or several other options that I rarely use including sending to someone by email. Of course, your document is also available right on your iOS device. It's pretty slick, being able to quickly scan a document before I run out the door. My document is then available in the car or wherever I'm going. I recommend this app and the iX500 to anyone who needs to do a lot of scanning!

Connects great, interface and service are lacking
Ok, so the app does what it's supposed to do. It connects to my ScanSnap ix500, and it scans. That's the good part. Now on to the critiques: 1.) The app hasn't been updated to take advantage of the iPhone 6 or (I'm assuming) 6s screens. For a scanning app, it would seem like the extra screen real-estate would be useful. 2.) The app looks old. I know that sounds picky, but when you buy a $400-ish scanner, you'd expect that the accompanying app would keep up with the design language of the most current iteration of iOS (currently iOS 9.3 as of this review). 3.) The cloud syncing options are a bit too limited. I personally still use Dropbox, so it works for me, but there should be options for iCloud Drive among others. 4.) I know I can create a note in Evernote via the "Open In..." Menu, but this is a bit clunky. Evernote should be integrated at a deeper level, allowing the user to automatically create a new note with each scan. 5.) Alternatively to #4, instead of a simple "Scan" button, how about a "Scan to Evernote," a "Scan to Dropbox," etc... type configuration? Anyway, glad to have the app, but I'll be happier when the app looks like it belongs on the phone I'm using it on.

Worked well...
I have been using this app for 6+ months without many issues at all until I recently updated to iOS 9 beta. Understandably, there have been some glitches and bugs but this is only the second issue with a 3rd party app that I've seen. I couldn't find an easy place to supply feedback so I'm doing it here. The app will crash immediately upon attempting to trash a secondary page from a scan i.e. the back of a receipt. No other issues seen thus far. Thanks!

Lighning Fast
As for features. It has plenty if you use the software. That it's package with. But I have adobe acrobat pro. So didn't have to have that. But it's great to bypass. Makes it quicker to scan straight to word, PowerPoint etc... But the best feature scanning straight to mobile device. It is a lightning fast wifi process. I have never been able to scan this fast. You can scan 15 pages. Before another scanner starts. Buy a ix500. Get this app. Worth every penny.

Very nice
Makes the process of getting a fresh scan onto your iDevice very quick and painless. I would like to be able to not require a password, and being able to select a scan profile from the device would be wonderful. Finally, the window doesn't seem to close on my Mac after I do a scan, as the docs say it should. Overall, though, a great app that I hope keeps improving.

Happy with app. Works great with ix500
Coming from an older s1500 scanner, I'm really happy with upgrade to wireless ix500. I scan from ix500 wirelessly to computer and to my ipad using this app. Scanning to ipad app has been surprisingly easy and without problems. App scans fast, is simple and clean UI. One gripe I have it that it would be great for the app to prompt you what to name a file after scanning is complete. Options allow for varying formats of year/date/time etc, or allows you to create a custom filename which then adds a number to that name in subsequent scans. Right now I have to go to each file, edit and do a manual rename. I setup syncing with Dropbox, which was a breeze and works well.
