Slipscan – Capture Receipts App

Have you ever wanted to return a product because it is faulty / not something you wanted, but lost the slip? Don’t lie, everyone has.

But no more! Now you can take a picture of the receipt on your phone, add a description, and store it safely on your phone!

Other use cases are:

  • You work for a company, and you need to claim back fuel costs. Just take a slip of the receipt and mark it as re-imbursable
  • Buy clothes you want to try on, its too tight. Return it because you have the backup slip!

Install it now:

Development comments:

  • Open Source! :
  • This is a hybrid app, not native
  • The app is supposed to be cross platform, but I have not created a windows / apple developer account yet (It costs a few bucks), so it only works for Android for now.
  • The app is a bit buggy, but its my first app so dont be too harsh. The code really needs to be refactored, but dont have the time now. //todo
  • I will move the source code to Github shortly! (currently on visual studio code git)


Created with the following tools / languages

  • Angular (1),
  • Ionic Framework (1)
  • JQuery
  • Javascript
  • ngCordova


Here is the blurp from the android store:

The app was designed to replace storing physical receipts. You can do it in three easy steps:
1. Open the Slipscan App
2. Capture the receipt via device camera or upload from your gallery
2.5 Add optional detail like description, company, reimbursable, mileage
3. Save, and throw away the receipt

Functionality include:
– Offline safe storage of receipts
– Capture receipt from camera
– Capture receipt via gallery
– Allows entering of receipt description like cost, mileage etc
– Search previously indexed receipts
– Conveniently stores images locally on your phone in a separate folder. The filename will contain all receipt descriptions you enter, so you will have everything you need even if you decide to use a different application in the future.

This is just simple application, no bells and whistles
– The app does not connect to the internet
– The app does not automatically scan and read image text
– The app does not backup your device on the internet (unless you already have a backup solution for your images)

The application will require two permissions:
Camera – To take the photos of the receipt
Storage – To save the photos on your device
