Open Genius Scan from another app


URL schemes can let you open Genius Scan from other apps.

The URL schemes of Genius Scan are:

  • geniusscan:// for Genius Scan
  • geniusscanenterprise:// for Genius Scan Enterprise


It's possible to start a scan flow in Genius Scan from another app using an intent. Genius Scan supports two types of intents:

  • the standard intent which enables capturing a single page and returning this page as a JPEG image.
  • a custom com.thegrizzlylabs.geniusscan.DOCUMENT_CAPTURE intent which enables capturing multiple pages and returning these pages as a PDF file.

Starting in Android 11, only pre-installed system camera apps can respond to the intent
