Genius Scan - PDF Scanner

Android - Free iPhone/iPad - Free

Teacher Overview

If being able to fine tune everything about your scanned documents is the way you want to go, Genius Scan is an excellent option. You can separate documents into folders, name each document or folder, and even tag documents. This means you can have taxes from multiple years in different folders that can still be found by searching through your tagging system.
If having a clean and intuitive UI that gives you access to a few features without going overboard is what you're after, then it's Genius Scan that you should take a look at. The one flaw with Genius Scan is that to get access to the full sharing capabilities, you'll need to pony up $4.95 for a premium subscription.
