Google Drive for mobile just recently released a feature that lets you do this well. In the app hit the plus button -> Scan. It's super streamlined and has great edge detection in crop. Plus you can rotate, change the color (B&W, color, etc), and add additional pages to the scan.
If you don't use Google Drive (first off, you're crazy), Tiny Scanner is another mobile app that works great. It's paid but still pretty cheap. There are a bunch of options, but once you find the right ones for your documents it's super quick to scan. Plus it backs up to your cloud accounts.
I am using Adobe Scan, and the best thing is i dont have to care about to saving it on pictures or File on iOS. You can connect Adobe scan with your adobe id and enable cloud, so then you can straight away edit stuff on your desktop.
Adobe Scan also have nice set of features like scan document, business cards and forms etc.
I use Office Lens by Microsoft. Great edge detection for documents and lets me save the file as an OCR Word Doc, a new note in OneNote (which I use a ton for book highlights), an image or whatever.
Scanners are ubiquitous and built into so many apps nowadays, it's hard to stick to just one.
I recently found that Excel has a killer scanning feature found only within the mobile app: you take a picture of a table and it's OCR will populate the values into individual cells in your sheet.
I know that it might seem as though Scanner apps are ubiquitous and the differences between each might be minimal, however, it depends on a lot on your use case. I have tried almost a dozen scanner apps and here are my top picks:
Scannable by Evernote (personal recommendation): Best app for B&W document scanning. It has a feature that enhances the text (removes pixelation and creases in the paper) which makes it seem like the PDF is a true PDF and not a scan.
Notes (iOS), Google Drive built-in scanner, any other default solution: I have noticed that these are fast, easy, and you don't usually need a separate scanner app. They do the job but that is about it. They don't have the special features of the other ones I talked about.
ScanBot Pro (paid): The most feature rich scanning app. It has different presets depending on what you are scanning for both B&W and color documents, pictures, business cards, etc. It has a lot of automation built-in for one-tap upload, print, email, etc.
Abode Scan or Office Lens (free): Decent. Nothing special. Great if they fit into your existing workflow
