New release of mobile application for ScanSnap
- ScanSnap Home (for mobile)

PFU Limited (hereinafter “PFU”), under the direction of President and Representative Director Seiji Murakami, today, launches a new mobile application for ScanSnap, ScanSnap Home (for mobile).

ScanSnap Home (for mobile) is a new application that allows you to use ScanSnap directly from your smartphone. Now, anyone with a smartphone can take quick and easy scans at higher quality than with the camera application, and can use the scan data in a variety of ways, like sharing it with friends and family through a messenger app or attaching it to a business email, all without starting up a PC.

ScanSnap Home (for mobile) integrates the functions of the existing mobile application "ScanSnap Connect Application" and the ScanSnap Cloud App for setting up "ScanSnap Cloud", a service that enables direct connection from scanners to cloud storage. Users can scan and configure cloud settings with a more user-friendly and intuitive user interface. This first edition supports languages such as English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish and is released in countries where ScanSnap Cloud is available.(1)
The scan data transfer function from the existing mobile application "ScanSnap Connect Application" will be available in an update in August 2023.(2) (3)

In the future, there will be a series of updates that will allow ScanSnap to be used completely without a PC by providing functions currently available only on PC. This will include creating searchable PDFs, merging the front and back images of bi-folded A3 documents, advanced image processing functions such as correcting photos, a profile function that allows users to quickly switch between different scanning settings, and Chromebook support. In addition, we plan to support five more languages (Portuguese, Russian, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, and Korean) in future updates.

Join us in using new ScanSnap Home (for mobile)!

The user interface has been redesigned. The current scan settings can be seen at a glance and setting changes can be made intuitively from the main screen.
Link up with your regular chat applications, messages, and other social network applications by tapping on the share icon on your smartphone device. Share data with family and friends with just a few taps on your smartphone.

In addition, the ScanSnap Cloud settings function is integrated. By logging in with your ScanSnap account and specifying the cloud service you are using, you can save scanned data directly from ScanSnap to the cloud service you have set up.
