User Interface

This app has extremely simple user interface.  The only thing you can do is to take a photo (scan) of a document and save the file. The latest update has a feature that saves photos automatically for 30 days. This feature can be disabled at Advanced settings. You can also convert a JPEG file to PDF format. The latest version also allows you to drag and drop pages in order to reorder your files.

Evernote Scannable is completely free app. However, it requires iOS 8 or later, so users with older iOS versions cannot use the app. A good thing is that most languages are supported. This includes: German, Hungarian, Czech and many others.
