    What are some good apps to scan and organize receipts? Preferably apps that can capture and interpret numbers on receipts, and automatically enter the numbers into the correct fields.

    Have a look at CamScanner.

    I'm afraid you won't find this interpreting feature on Android apps.

    I already have CamScanner. CamCard as well, the Asian languages version. I'm looking for an app that's more, specialized.

    I tried one quite some time ago named Lemon Wallet. I was very impressed, but although it worked very well. My devotion to its use was lacking. It is a free app. The name is linked.

    Expensify is something very specified to your needs. You may want to look at Toshl as well.

    Does it do automatically now? I used it a while ago and had to enter everything manually. I gave up. It was too time consuming.

    Honestly, I would love something like Neat Receipts but they are not at all a reliable company so staying away from them and looking for an alternative. Something similar for android will be a quite a long shot.

    I read its user reviews, some of which mention it has a limit on how many receipts you can scan - unless you pay a monthly subscription for unlimited use. I ain't paying for any subscription. So I'm skipping Lemon Wallet.

    Lemon indeed.

    If your trying to organize the receipts for budgeting purposes, why not use a budgeting app that you can customize to your needs. (You will just have to enter these things in manually.) I use "CamScanner Pro" to scan important receipts and use "MoneyWise Pro" as my budgeting app that I enter all receipt info. into. Works really well.

    I downloaded and tried Expensify, and found out it charges TWENTY CENTS PER RECEIPT/SCAN after the first ten free scans.

    Let me repeat : that's TWENTY CENTS PER SCAN. Every time you use the app to scan a receipt, you incur twenty cents in expense. If you do not like the result of the first scan and rescan the same receipt again, that's forty cents.

    I did not even bother trying any of the first ten free scans. I uninstalled the app so fast.

    Expensify... aptly named.

    Just curious if anyone has any update to report.

    I am STILL looking for such app. With the long receipts we have in the US, its difficult to scan even on a flatbed scanner. Cam scanners have never worked with me so I tend to stay away from them.
