Scan Thing is the quickest and easiest way to extract objects and text from images or photo documents.

Scan objects, people, animals, plants, and art.

Click, drag, release. Then, drag your scan from Scan Thing to your desktop or another app.

Capture books and documents with the original images intact and the text embedded.

Save your scan as a single or multi-page PDF with all its text fully searchable and selectable. Scan Thing supports optical character recognition in English, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Just the text?

Drag in a document or an image. Select the text you want to extract, and the text is automatically copied to your Mac's clipboard.

No nonsense. Just the app.

You don't need an account to use Scan Thing. You don't need internet access. Your scans never leave your device. Because your privacy is important (not to mention none of our business), we collect no data whatsoever and we don't use any third-party code. Your privacy is yours, and we think it should stay that way.

No nonsense.

A one-time in-app purchase.

No subscriptions. No ads. No shenanigans. You can try Scan Thing for free, and, when you're ready, you can unlock unlimited scans with one payment.
