Back-up Your Files on your cloud or device
SwiftScan will store all of your PDFs locally on your iOS device. However, if you delete the app, your local files will also be deleted.
If you backup and restore a device via iCloud, or backup and restore a device via your Mac or PC, all of your SwiftScan documents will also be transferred.
All Supported Cloud Services
In addition to local storage, SwiftScan Subscribers and VIP app users are able to sync their documents to a number of cloud service providers, including Dropbox, iCloud and Google Drive.
For a full list of all of our cloud services please see the link below:

- iOS: See content Below
If you have cloud sync enabled, you can delete SwiftScan from your device, all of your backed-up documents will be available in the cloud provider you have selected.
If you delete SwiftScan and have cloud sync enabled, you may wish to review your files in SwiftScan. Currently, iCloud is the only cloud provider supported that allows for the import of files into the app, following the deletion of the app.
Opening Files in SwiftScan
You may manually add documents from another cloud provider app on your device. For example….
- Download the desired file to your device
- Open the SwiftScan, close or save any pending actions
- Navigate to your file & folder page of SwiftScan, then go back to your phones home screen
- Navigate to your file app manager, such as Photos, and select a file
- While viewing the file, click the share icon
- If you do now see SwiftScan on the list, click more, and toggle SwiftScan on
- Click on the SwiftScan icon
- A pop-up will read: “Please open SwiftScan to finish your scan” (the message will close after a few seconds)
- Open your SwiftScan, and you should see the desired file open, as if you just scanned it yourself.
While some apps support a “share” or “copy to” functionality (Like Google Drive or locally stored files), not all do, nor is a feature that is maintained by SwiftScan.
Unfortunately, support for the iOS Files app is not available at this time.
