Helping you save time since 2010.

In 2010, Eyjafjallajokull filled the European sky with ashes and grounded us in Chicago. Our flight was cancelled; we used the money from the ticket to purchase a MacBook and created Genius Scan. Since then, 30 million+ users have downloaded Genius Scan worldwide and scanned more than 200 million documents. Users love it, consistently rate it five stars and Apple features it regularly.

Following our goal of making it easier for individuals and small businesses to go paperless and manage their documents digitally, we launched Genius Fax in 2013 and Genius Sign in 2015 to make it easy to fax and sign documents from your phone.

In 2016, we launched Pyfl, an app that let users create the map of their favorite places, add a comment for each of them and get trustworthy recommendations from the maps of their friends.

We keep improving our apps (9+ years of updates!) and we strive to provide excellent support.
