HP Easy Scan is designed specifically for use with your HP scanner or multifunction printer. With features such as automatic photo detection, multi-page document processing, text recognition (OCR)[1], and PDF file output, HP Easy Scan will help you get the most value from your HP product. Easy to use presets let you quickly choose scan settings that are optimized for whatever you are scanning. Simply place your content on the scanner, select a preset, and click the Scan button. HP Easy Scan uses the Apple ICA scan protocol and will work with any HP device that is supported by an ICA scan driver. Make sure that you have installed the latest HP ICA driver for your product — available online from www.hp.com/support or via Apple Software Update. Notes: [1] Text recognition is only available on certain HP products.



  • Frustrated, then Thrilled!

    I've used HP Easy Scan for a few years with little trouble, but then I purchased a new Macbook Pro with Mojave OS and couldn't get this scan software to recognize my HP printer. However, with the right steps, it worked again! Regardless of whether your Macbook already recognizes your printer, go through the process of adding a new printer. While adding, you'll see Name, Location, and Use at the bottom of the window. The key is in the Use line...mine automatically selected AirPrint, but instead select the name of your printer and it'll search for appropriate driver from Apple. After new printer is installed, delete the old printer profile (minus button). Victory will be yours!
  • One document then freezes

    By MBColemanLopatic
    I can scan one document and then the app freezes saying there is a communication error. I have to constantly shut down the app and restart it. Each time, I get half of one or one (2-page) document done and then the error occurs again. PLEASE FIX THIS.

    "Scanner reported an error. HP ENVY 4500 series [934E58] is currently unavailable. Please check if it is turned on and connected, or try again later.” Everything seems right on my end. You had one job, HP.
  • Works Great!

    All I had to do was download this app, click scan, and I had my scans ready. An important thing to note is that you might have to download and configure the HP smart app first for this app to work alongside it since this app is an addition to the regular app.
  • Works Great

    By KylethePokéDude
    I see all the negative reviews about the software not working or their printer not showing up, but I haven't had any issues with it. My OfficeJet Pro 8710 showed up immediately and the process of scanning, as well as the software, was easy to use.
  • Needs Work

    By sgt.jason.navarro
    I am not sure if HP just decided to say “WE’RE DONE!” and just abandoned further improvements for this app. I installed the app and it won’t even show my fully functioning HP Printer/Scanner. I know that the connection between my iMac and my HP Printer is working perfectly because I was able to scan documents using the embedded web server. However; I want to be able to scan without having to open Safari and just by using the Mac App instead. C’mon HP, We need this app to be fully functioning you still have supporters and users,so please get this straighten up and update this app.
  • Does not work

    By greenmind39
    I’ve had my printer for a good ten years. Quality printer, (except for the insane ink price,) but scanning is impossible. I was only able to scan using my Macs System Presences in the Printers & Scanners tab. Then saving a useable scan is more difficult. I first got the message "no scan options" ten years ago, and was hoping that someday they would improve the App. Nope. I just tried it gain and get the message scanner reported an error 'The scanner is in use by application 'HP Officejet J4500 series.app’. Well no ****, how else am I supposed to use the app wt the scanner. I’ve read a couple good reviews here. How in the world did these users ever get the app to work?
  • Doesn’t work

    By scanNoMor
    Just spent an hour removing drivers, searching for more than the NEW HP “EASY” Start installer to attempt to get the scanner on my OJ Pro 8725 on OS X 10.10.5 working. I’m now giving up… In the old days it was easy to download the drivers individually and get them to work on all platforms, now with “EASY” Start all I have are problems. Time to get some new programmers HP!
  • HP Easy Scan with HP OfficeJet 8710

    By Gratefullytall
    I just bought the HP OfficeJet 8710 for my new laptap Mac. Finding a printer that works AND scans to a brand new operating system (esp. a Mac) can be challenging — but HP came through!! The HP EasyScan (New version 1.9.1)has helped me to elimate many retained “papers”. I am grateful HP!
  • Absolute fecal matter

    It doesn’t even recognize a laser printer/scanner.
