Scanner Pro for iPhone review

£3.99

Manufacturer: Readdle

Our Rating: We rate this 4 out of 5

To turn paper from on-the-road pocket clutter to useful information takes a scanner, and Scanner Pro is a great way to do so using an iPhone.

OK, a confession: I dislike dealing with most business paper. I'd much rather have the information in electronic form, where I can search for it, store it, index it, and use it in various useful ways. To turn paper from on-the-road pocket clutter to useful information takes a scanner, and Scanner Pro is a great way to do so using an iPhone.

Using Scanner Pro is simplicity itself. To capture the image, you point the iPhone's camera at the item you'd like to scan, and press the shutter button.

You're then given the chance to edit the image by changing colour for greyscale or adjusting the brightness and contrast of the scan. Finally, Scanner Pro prompts you to send the image to one of four places: an Evernote note, a Dropbox file, an e-mail message, or a file on any WebDAV server.

If you don't have a WebDAV server, that's OK - Scanner Pro has help screens that tell you how to use WebDAV to transfer images directly from the iPhone to a Mac or Windows computer.

The instructions are simple and the process quick, so the captured scan gets off the iPhone as rapidly as possible.

Scanner Pro: scan multipage documents, upload to Dropbox and Evernote Expert Verdict »

There are currently no technical specifications recorded for this product.

  • Overall: We give this item 8 of 10 overall

Scanner Pro is a very good way to capture the "I hope I remember that" images that are constantly cropping up on business trips, and it's a great way to grab images of receipts to accompany expense or activity reports. You learn that you have to carefully watch the iPhone's screen to make sure the camera's lens is parallel to the thing being scanned, but with a little practice the scans work well and are good enough to keep accounting off your back.
