StandScan Pro Review


Technology is quickly evolving and growing to make our lives easier and more convenient. We have smartphones and wireless printers, but what about scanners? Everyone needs to scan and upload documents at some point, but scanners are bulky and are not portable. 

StandScan is a convenient way to scan your documents or photos no matter where you are or what you are doing. This product turns your camera-enabled smartphone into a portable scanner. The StandScan can travel with you in your briefcase, backpack, or in your car. It folds flat for easy storage and access.

The problem with taking pictures of documents on the smartphone is with the quality and resolution. Even when I take a photo of a document I need to upload, the image is blurry and I can't hold the phone still. I used my iPhone to test the quality of the scan, and the resolution was good. The document was clearly visible  and easy to read. 

How to use the StandScan:

1. Fold StandScan into place (takes less than 3 minutes)
2. Place document or photo into box
3. Place smartphone above the box and position phone 
4. Enable camera and take image

That's it!


The StandScan Pro has an AC power adapter that provides additional light for your documents. The adapter connects to a plug that is small and built into the StandScan Pro.

I travel often and spend a lot of time sending documents to my office. Business centers are costly and time consuming. With the StandScan I can use this without having to leave my hotel room and I don't need to carry any wires to plug into my laptop. I can email the documents directly to myself or colleagues.

I also tested the StandScan on a small photo of my dog that I carry with me. It works well on images too.


This would make a great gift for any smartphone user and for anyone who needs to scan while "on the go." This product would have been helpful to me when I was in college. It's compatible with any smartphone and you don't need to install any software. I would highly recommend the StandScan Pro as a portable and efficient solution for your scanning needs!
