Scanner Pro by Readdle is possibly one of my favorite productivity apps available. On sale for the rest of this week half off, regularly $6.99, this is an offer you don’t want to miss. This app alone has completely negated the use of my desktop scanner. Upon opening the app for the first time, you’ll be asked to create an account. This is quite simple.
When the application launches, a simplistic blue library can be seen. At the bottom of the page there will be tabs to scan and upload images. I couldn’t believe how easy and intuitive the interface ended up being. Certainly easier than an actual scanner. After scanning an image, the edges of the paper are automatically cropped, rotated, and centered. The whole process was extremely painless. You’ll also be able to edit contrast, brightness, rotation and filters. After your picture is finalized, it is thrown into a folder back on the original library. Under the sharing menu, your options are save, email, Dropbox, Google Drive, open in other app, Evernote, Web upload, print, fax, and password protect. Alternatively, you’ll be able to plug it into iTunes and retrieve it under the app sharing menu. Overall, the entire process seems perfected, although I haven’t tried to fax yet. Occasionally, you’ll receive Email updates from Readdle, but I find them quite helpful. In fact the latest one taught me how to batch scan documents. In conclusion, $6.99 is much cheaper than a scanner, and the convenience of having it right on your iDevice won’t be overlooked either.
