'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

Although we've come to take the power of our phones for granted, it's still pretty mind-boggling when you think about what they can accomplish. You can book bargain vacations, perfectly match paint colors, and train for new careers. With the iScanner app, you can even turn your iPhone into a competent remote office

iScanner's AI lets you use your iPhone for everyday business, personal or educational tasks. For example, you can scan and compile pages into a single document and sign, edit, and fax them. This could be valuable for small business professionals like accountants, realtors, and lawyers, as well as students and teachers.

Scan your documents and photos into various formats, such as PDF, TXT, or JPG. iScanner also allows your phone's camera to read QR codes and uses OCR to recognize the text within scanned objects. You can even blur sensitive elements in documents if necessary.

More than a simple photocopier, iScanner's document editor offers color correction and noise-removing functions. The file manager is highly secure, as well — you can lock confidential data using a PIN. And document sharing is a breeze. You can upload scanned documents directly to your cloud storage accounts, such as Dropbox or Google Drive.

Best of all, iScanner isn't just for scanning and processing documents. Point it at a math problem to get an instant solution or measure an object's length to determine a room's total area. It's no wonder that users love it.

With over 70 million downloads, iScanner is the number one scanning app on the App Store, with an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars. Numerous outlets rave about its AI-based object counting feature, including 9to5Mac, Mac Sources, Gizmodo, and more. News18 explains why: "The feature comes with a wide use-case as it will prove to be useful in both day-to-day tasks, as well as in a commercial setting like inventory, merchandising, and more."
