Docutain user reviews :

Pretty good app. It needs a way to group files together (folders) outside of just tags. Users should not be limited by a pointless design choice. If I can batch documents together when I scan them, I should be able to add documents to that batch at a later time. Other than that it’s nearly perfect. But that one issue means I can’t leave camscanner.

  • Thanks a lot for your feedback! We have consciously decided against a folder structure and explained the advantages of using tags in our blog article: You can edit/add scans even after saving a scanned document. Therefore, just go to the edit mode of the document and click on “+ camera” or “+ import”.

I was honestly shocked by how good this is. I have tried at least 15 different bloated, expensive, flashy apps for organizing and this finally ticks almost all the boxes. It’s clean and gives you great organizational options while the OCR quietly does it’s job in the background. PDFs are exported with the recognized text which is fantastic. The only crucial thing I would add is automatic PDF export to cloud storage (ideally with the tags in the file description). You’re doing amazing work!

  • Thanks a lot for the positive feedback! We have the PDF Upload into the cloud already on our todo list.
