My file cabinet was becoming overfilled. Something needed to be done. Even after switching most of my bank statements and bills to paperless delivery, I still got the occasional paper document that I needed to keep. I had long since gotten rid of my stand alone scanner. Could the iPhone help me digitize all these documents? With Scanner Pro by Readdle it is a breeze.
The app uses your iPhone or iPad camera to “scan” papers. Actually, the app is taking a picture, automatically finding the edges of the paper, cropping, and applying a filter to clean up the shadows. It works great and includes the ability to save as multi-page PDFs. You can then email it to yourself or upload it to online storage like Dropbox.
I really love using Scanner Pro. Although there are other scanner apps on the App Store, Scanner Pro shines bright because of its gorgeous UI, usability, iCloud sync between devices, and being a universal build.
