We recommend using ScanSnap Home (for mobile), a more advanced mobile application.


ScanSnap Connect Application is a mobile scanning tool to support your fast-paced life. Providing the option to scan to your iOS or Android mobile device, it is a reliable and efficient way to go paperless. Whether you are traveling, at home or in the office, you can organize PDF and JPEG images scanned with ScanSnap on any device. Access your scanned files on the go for ultimate flexibility.


Improve mobility for better productivity

Without a desktop computer, the ScanSnap Connect Application allows your smartphone or tablet device to operate the personal document scanner ScanSnap and handle the scanned images.

Scan with any device

The ScanSnap Connect Application allows you to directly scan*1 from your smart devices without PC. While the device uses existing Wi-Fi environments in Access Point Connect Mode*2, connection is also possible in environments without Wi-Fi using Direct Connect Mode, as the scanner itself functions as an access point.

*1 Only available with iX1600/iX1500/iX1300/iX100
*2 Access Point Connect Mode requires a Wi-Fi access point or router.
