There are many times having a scanner would be convenient, but how many of those times take place next to an actual scanner? If you need a quick digital copy of a document, you may not want to waste time fussing with a regular scanner, and you may not have one at all. However, iPhone users could just turn their cameras into a scanner. iScanner for iOS is a high-quality point-and-shoot document scanner, and it’s just $39.99 for a lifetime subscription.
A scanner that fits in your pocket
Have you ever been given a big packet to read and wished life had a search function? There’s no button you can press on a hard copy to find specific terms, but iScanner is an Optical Character Recognition (OCR) scanner, meaning your scanned documents may also be searchable. If someone hands you a thick tome to read through at work or school, scan each page into one document, then search for what you need.
“I am using it for scanning the documents of my small business. Scans are very detailed and precise, it is easy to use and has all the features one can imagine. You should definitely consider buying it if you have many documents you would like to save digitally,” writes reviewer Philip F. If you’re making scans for your business, iScanner also makes it easy to share your documents with the rest of your team. Attach scans to email or share and upload to Dropbox, Evernote, or Google Drive.
iScanner doesn’t just scan documents. If you’re in the market for a new apartment or home, you probably know all the tricks you have to deal with: fisheye photos that make rooms appear larger, “rounded up” dimensions, the works. Instead of pulling out a tape measure for every room you walk into, use iScanner for a quick calculation of a room’s total area. You could also calculate a specific object’s dimensions, or just point your phone at a written or typed math problem and get an answer.
With iScanner, the same app you use to access QR code menus at restaurants could tell you if your “walk-in closet” is all it’s cracked up to be. Or, as one user noted, you could use iScanner to keep records of all your expenses in order: “This scanner is a must have especially for people who wish to keep track of their receipts, it includes a counter, and a great UI.”
