Scanbot 7: Big update with many new features released (iOS and Android)

The big update from Scanbot for iOS and Android to version 7 is here. And as befits such a jump in the version, many new features are added. “In addition to new filters optimized by machine learning, a refreshed design with new color themes, the ability to send documents directly to DATEVcconnect online, there are many improvements that result in faster processing,” said the developer.


New filters

Scanbot 7 has been given a few significantly improved filters. Using technologies such as machine learning, the new filters should ensure that the scan results look even better than before. The paper should look strongly white and the text should be crystal clear. Great promise, but so far you are also used to a lot from Scanbot. Despite conversion, the new b / w filter is designed to preserve all the details of the original, while the grayscale filter is designed to provide more dynamics and clarity. The whole thing is complemented by the two filters “Magic Color” and “Magic Text”. Thanks to the now also available sliders, the filters can be adjusted even more finely by individually setting parameters such as contrast, brightness or saturation.

Also the design of the app has been improved once again. Modern is the motto here and of course Scanbot 7 should also offer a much better usability than the previous versions. The color themes of the app previously used by the users were reworked once again. In addition, many new themes have been added. Among them should also find designs that are intended for people with limited vision and provide a correspondingly high contrast.

New cloud service

According to the developer of Scanbot, one of the requests most frequently expressed by users was to partner with DATEV eG. This has now happened and provides Scanbot users with a professional background the opportunity to use the new DATEVconnect online interface. Here, the scanned documents can be further processed online after uploading to DATEV companies. For the time being, this interface will only be available for iOS users, but implementation for Android is already in the planning stage.

Otherwise, Scanbot 7 now also offers a new search, which thanks to automatic suggestions (location, date or keywords) should ensure even faster finding of searched documents. And while we are just “fast”: Text annotations can now no longer be drawn only with the finger, but may now be entered with the iOS keyboard. In addition, the logic of document creation and processing was probably revised in the form that especially smaller PDF files can now be generated much faster.
