How it works

Scanning application dedicated for mobile devices

ScanSnap Home (for mobile) is an application dedicated to mobile devices. The app provides a simple way for you to scan and manage your documents and photos and save them directly to the cloud using your smartphone or tablet.

  • Intuitive user interface for easy scanning and access to your scanned data
  • Scan data quickly and share on your mobile device
  • Set up "ScanSnap Cloud" without a PC


Intuitive user interface for easier operation

With a user-friendly interface, you can view scan settings such as file format and color mode and search and view scanned data quickly and easily.

Just tap to share scanned data with family and friends

Connect your interests quickly by sharing content across messaging, chat applications, and other social networks by tapping the share icon on your smartphone device.
ScanSnap is a great way to quickly scan and enrich communication with your family and friends at the push of a button.

Scanned images optimized automatically

A host of intelligent automatic image processing functions, such as Automatic Size Detection, Automatic Rotation, De-Skew, and Blank Page Removal, allows you to save optimal scanned data without the need for manual editing.

ScanSnap Cloud settings completed on mobile devices

Set up and manage ScanSnap Cloud right from your mobile device. After setting up ScanSnap Cloud, ScanSnap automatically recognizes the type of scanned document ("Documents", "Business Cards", "Receipts", or "Photos") and saves the data to your preferred cloud service according to your setting.
With ScanSnap Home (for mobile), you can also view the data history sent via ScanSnap Cloud.
For ScanSnap with a touch screen, ScanSnap Home (for mobile) also allows you to set multiple icons on the touch screen with any cloud service designated as the destination, as well as a function that enables scanned data to be emailed directly from the touch screen.
