How do I transfer my scans from Genius Scan to Genius Scan+?

Before you upgrade to Genius Scan+

Note that it is recommend to upgrade the free version of Genius Scan rather than purchase and install the paid version. This gives you access to the same premium features, and it will save you the need to migrate document between two apps.

If you already bought the paid app, you can request a refund for it and upgrade the free version of Genius Scan to premium instead (via an in-app purchase).

How to transfer scans

If you still need to transfer your documents between the free and paid versions of Genius Scan, you have two options:

Subscribe to Genius Cloud

This is the best option to have Genius Scan documents automatically synchronized. Not only will this copy your scans between all versions of Genius Scan for iOS, but it also works with Android devices and also make your documents available from your compueter at This is also a good way to keep your documents backed up in case your lose your phone.

Export your documents manually

Another method is to export your scan one-by-one between the Genius Scan apps that are installed on your device.

Select your document, tap export and chose 'Other Apps' in the export option. You can find 'Genius Scan+' as a destination.
