3. CamScanner - Document Scanner

CamScanner is definitely the best Scanner App in the market. But after the Chinese App ban in 2020 - it is not possible to download CamScanner in India.

4. Microsoft Office Lens - PDF Creator

Office Lens is a free app offered by Microsoft & is available for both iOS & Android devices. This app seamlessly integrates with all the Microsoft Office products but fails to offer as many features as other apps on this list. With Office Lens, you can easily convert your scanned documents to a PDF, Word, or PPT Format.

5. Genius Scan - PDF Maker

Genius Scan is another great scanning app that is available on both iOS & Android devices. Genius Scan offers great quality PDF Scanning & export but it has its own set of issues. Multiple features which you can find on other apps for free are chargeable on this app.
