Reviews

Introduction

Just because you aren't in the office doesn't mean you can't be productive. The Pocket Scanner app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone gives users all the power of a scanner right in their mobile device. You can easily convert your scans right to a PDF file, making this a multi-purpose tool. The app is professional enough that it can be used for business purposes but can also be used in your everyday life for all kinds of reasons. You can capture, then digitalize, and keep a record of any and all information.

Plenty of Uses

Perhaps you don't think you have much use for a scanner or maybe you don't need one for work and doubt you'd use it in your everyday life. What's surprising about the Pocket Scanner app is how often it can come in handy. Use this app to scan receipts, important documents, flyers, posters, business cards, notes, a check, a chalkboard, or whatever you like. And there's no need to worry if it's multiple pages because the app is able to support more than one page. All your scans can be shared by Dropbox, email, Box, GoogleDocs, Mydisk.se, SugarSync, and FTP/WebDAV.

What It’s Capable Of

The Pocket Scanner app is capable of quite a bit including the ability to perform quick scans even if it has multiple pages. There is an automatic edge detection feature, built-in document readers, you can manage your files from within the app, there is advanced image processing, and you can email your documents. The app also supports AirPrint so you can quickly print what you need. There are a number of tools that have been made specifically for iOS 8 users so those people will find they have an enriched experience.
