ScanSnap Connect Application

Overview

ScanSnap Connect Application is a mobile scanning tool to support your fast‐paced life. Providing the option to scan to your iOS or Android mobile device, it is a reliable and efficient way to go paperless. Whether you are traveling, at home or in the office, you can organize PDF and JPEG images scanned with ScanSnap on any device. Access your scanned files on the go for ultimate flexibility.


The ScanSnap Connect app allows you to stay connected to all of your documents using ScanSnap Sync*, an embedded function that will synchronize files for access on your mobile devices. ScanSnap Sync automatically connects documents scanned from the ScanSnap Connect app to ScanSnap Organizer, so you can manage your information anytime, anywhere.


For more information, please view the Features tab.


*ScanSnap Sync utilizes third party cloud services Google Drive, OneDrive and Dropbox to synchronize data between Connect Application and Organizer. Initial account registration for the cloud service is required.

ScanSnap Sync

Thanks to the ScanSnap Sync function, by using cloud services *(to perform document synchronizations), the same document can be viewed from either a mobile device using ScanSnap Connect Application or a computer using ScanSnap Organizer regardless of where you are or what device you are using. With the ScanSnap Sync function, you can now edit documents scanned from mobile devices by using ScanSnap Organizer functions such as OCR or paper rotation.

[Notes]
There might be other limitations based on cloud services and contract type. The following limitations will be applied when available capacity of the cloud service or number of files exceed the limit.


Maximum number of files When using ScanSnap Connect Application (iOS or Android OS), the file limit is set at 10,000 files, and so lists which have more than 10,000 files cannot be displayed. In addition, if the number of files in a folder increases, then performance to display a list may be deteriorated and become slow. When the number of files is becoming large, it is recommended to create another folder in ScanSnap Organizer (Windows® or Mac OS), and limit the number of files stored in a folder to 500 files.
Maximum file size for each transaction Limitations based on OS (Desktop app)
  • ScanSnap Organizer (Windows® or Mac OS)
    Maximum file size for each transaction depends on desktop apps of cloud services. ScanSnap Organizer has no limitation on the file size for downloads or uploads.

  • ScanSnap Connect Application (iOS or Android OS)
    Maximum file size for both upload/download is 2GB. However, when using OneDrive, the size for upload is limited to 100 MB.

*The maximum file sizes shown above are applicable only when available space of cloud service is equal to or greater than file size.
Target file type PDF / JPEG
Available storage space required on the cloud service side Same as the file size of the scanned data targeted for sync.
Expected line speed/bandwidth Recommended environment: Broadband internet connection (*1)
In the case of wireless, stable line of IEEE 802.11n(2.4GHz/5GHz) or later.
Others Windows's reserved words such as nul, lpt1, com1, aux, prn cannot be used as folder name.

*1 Put a check on "Synchronize On WiFi Only" in "ScanSnap Sync Setting" (default setting is "on") if you would like to sync only while connecting via broadband connection(WiFi Connection). It prevents unexpected data transmission with the other connection(3G, 4G etc.).
