editor's review




DocScanner is a no-frills and user-friendly OS X application that aims to help you to quickly and effortlessly get rid of all paper in your office by digitizing all your documents using a Mac.

Drag and drop GPU-based document processing for quicker conversion times

In order to convert a document to PDF using DocScanner, you have to drag and drop it onto its dock icon and it will automatically transform into PDFs. The app users your Mac’s graphics card to convert your files, so it should work fast enough even on older Macs, with lower specced system configurations.

Managing all your digitized paper documents after processing them using DocScanner is also quite a straightforward task because it comes with built-in Evernote integration. Thus, all that you have to do to have a searchable database of all your documents in one place is to create an Evernote account.

Inbuilt OCR engine for rapid transcription of any scanned document

DocScanner works with any digital camera or web cam and, you want to have the best results, you can also use a DSLR, to take advantage of the app’s innate capacity to obtain better results using better quality input images.

The DocScanner application also features a powerful OCR engine with support for 13 different languages and designed to help extract the text content out of any of your digitized documents with a few clicks.

Unfortunately, DocScanner does not come with the needed tools to allow you to quickly import documents snapshots created using a flatbed scanner or to download them from your camera using Image Capture.

Simple to use and fast utility designed with the business office that wants to drastically cut down paper usage

What’s more, it does not provide you with a batch editing feature and, thus, it practically forces you to either rotate your document’s pages or to extract text with the OCR tool one at a time.

All things considered, although DocScanner could be an excellent little tool for helping go paperless in a simple and effective manner, it does not quite live up to the expectation. You could give it a spin though to see if it does fit within your workflow.
