    i tried lots of apps with the not 4 to scan documents into pdf files
    but all of the app add a watermark of itself on the bottom of the documents as a commercial
    is there any free app that do it perfectly with no any other watermark?!!!

    p.s. also a good app for answering machine directly in the note 4....?!

    Have you tried ScanWritr? It is a Photo to PDF scan app, it allows editing of the doc, too. The Pro version has a few more features and no banner ads on the screen. I don't remember it adding a watermark to my docs.

    Also, Google Drive has a PDF Scan to Drive from a photo. The major weakness right now, however, is that it doesn't allow editing.

    Not sure what you're asking for the last app. Can you be more specific?

    Try CamScanner or the License version. I don't remember any watermarks and gets great reviews.
    Good Luck!

    Camscanner is $1.99 right now. I'd say spend the money, it's well worth it.

    I agree buy Cam Scanner when it's on sale. It's the best I have found. This really isn't a Note 4 issue rather than just Android.

    ScanWritr is free. The Pro version is not. But the Lite version is.

    I highly recommend ScanWritr. It really is the best photo to PDF tool. Much better than CamScanner in my opinion.

    I am curious about ScanWritr now that I've been following this thread. What makes it "Much better than CamScanner"? I use Camscanner almost daily and like it just fine. I don't think it's the end all of scanner apps but it works well. I'm always open to try something different that might be better.

    I have used CamScanner for years.....I just did a test document and emailed it to myself right from the app on my my phone. The Document itself does Not have any type of watermarks on it anywhere.....only in the "Email" body it states it was sent from CamScanner.

    I like ScanWritr because I can do multi-page documents at one time, instead of one photo at a time. But I just downloaded CamScanner based on your post, and so far I like the UI much better than ScanWritr. Can't give you a side by side comparison quite yet.

    I may download ScanWritr and try for comparison as well.

    Anyway, thanks for the feedback. I'll be watching for your opinion.

    CamScanner has worked well for me over the years. I have scanned 12 page contracts into a single document and emailed all from my phone in the car! But my interest was peaked as well about the one you mentioned, so I am trying it out as well.

    I've been playing around with both now for a few hours and think both are very similar. Both do batch scans and have several ways to share the pdf. I'll probably stick with CamScanner only because it's the one I've been using now for a while. I don't think you could go wrong with either.

    This type interaction is one of the main reasons I enjoy AC so much.

    For starters, I like its editing features. I don't need to install a separate app just to use the marker, or put a signature on a scanned document. The next thing I really like, is the way I can open documents of various types (Microsoft Word for example). I don't think CamScanner can do that. Also when dealing with text documents, I find ScanWritr's document enhancement algorithm better than CamScanner's one. I rarely end up with "shadowy" documents after scan. I haven't used CamScanner for a while now, but I remember there was always a bit of shadow or gray area present at the edges of the document, that I couldn't even erase (especially if lighting wasn't great). Speaking of erasing - last, but not least - I love the eraser. Shall there be something that needs to get erased from the document (a slight border at the edge, or something like that), eraser comes greatly in handy.

    I hope that will help you :-)

    Where to find Camscanner at $1.99?

    Is it $1.99 one time fee? I thought paid version Camscanner is monthly subscription.

    Thank you very much for this information! I have been a long time CamScanner user, but I will definitely take a closer look at ScanWritr now!
