SilverFast JobMonitor – The iPhone App

April 30th, 2015 · 4 Comments · News, Processing, SilverFast

Available now: SilverFast JobMonitor The iPhone App

Download the JobMonitor App from the App Store for free!

This App is an iOS monitor for keeping track of scanning and image processing jobs performed by main application SilverFast 8.5. The App serves as a status monitor for the SilverFast JobManager. The JobMonitor is included with SilverFast Ai Studio, HDR (Studio) and Archive Suite.

For scanning or processing large image files in SilverFast 8.5, the new JobMonitor App will comfortably display the progress of these scans or image optimization jobs on your iPhone, iPad or iPod using a Wi-Fi connection. You will find a preview image and a progress bar for every single image item enlisted on your current job queue. If a Wi-Fi connection is not available, a Push Notification will notify you once your scanner has finished its current job.

« Fantastic, having the JobMonitor App I no longer need to sit next to the scanner waiting for my high-resolution batch scanning to complete. I can devote myself to other tasks and I will automatically be notified when SilverFast has finished. I’ve been waiting a long time for exactly this feature. »

    I’m having trouble getting the app to connect with my software. Can I get some help?

    Have OS X 10.10.3

    Dear Brian,

    You need to activate the JobMonitor functionality in the main SilverFast application. In the Welcome Screen, please open the Service Dialog. If this doesn’t help, please get into contact with our Support Staff.

    Dear Linda,
    unfortunately the JobMonitor App is only available for iOS.
    Kind Regards
