Your feedback is our fuel. The newest version of Shortcut adds tons of value for you.

Document Scanner (iOS only)

The biggest change in this version is the camera. We removed the recognition mode as recognition is always on for magazines (Betty Bossi, Kochen, and KURIER) and QR Codes. We also added the possibility to switch between single- and multi-image mode. This saves a lot of time if you are only taking one image at the time.

Still, the best part is the new document scanner that automatically detects document outlines and cuts out the essential.

Image Cropping

If you add uncropped images from camera roll, you can now crop them within Shortcut.
