    So every now and then for my work I'll need to scan a document and send it to an extended warranty company. Coming from the Note 10 the stock camera did this no problem, no app needed. Does anyone know of a decent free app I can use? The ones I found all want you to signup for a monthly fee, but I don't use this feature enough to justify a monthly fee.

    Another option is to use the stock Notes app. There is an option to scan documents there and it works pretty well. To do this, open the app, tap on the paper and pencil icon on the lower right portion of the screen. Then tap the camera icon, then tap Scan Documents. Once you've taken a photo of the document if you need to adjust the corners, you can drag the edges until your scan is framed to your liking. Be sure to tap on "Keep Scan" to save it.

    Excellent advice Annie

    To the OP I use Turbo Scan Pro it’s a paid app but has auto iCloud Drive back up and is great for managing your documents

    Also check out Acrobat which I believe is a free app

    I use Scanner Pro. Got it free while it was a "pick of the week" somewhere. I've also used Microsoft's Office Lens. Evernote has a scanner that integrates well with their main app. If you're an Evernote user then their scanner makes a lot of sense.

    Yeah I use stock scanner within the notes app. And you can use the scanner faster by putting “create new note” to the control center. Then you can use it wherever you are.

    I have been using the paid version of TurboScan for years and works great. Let’s me take pics of documents and create a PDF to send to my clients. I have steered many clients to this app and no complaints as of yet.
