One of the great things about the iPhone camera is that it can essentially turn your device into a portable document scanner. TMA’s SteveNaka reviewed several of these apps in the past and found Readdle’s Scanner Pro to be one of the best he’s come across at the App Store. With the newly released 2.0 update, Scanner Pro features some nice improvements:
- Smart page edges detection
- Camera stabilization while taking images
- Password protection for the entire application
- Google Docs integration (upload scanned documents to Google Docs)
With the ability to upload to Dropbox, MobileMe, Google Docs and more, as well as scan from a range of items (business cards, receipts, whiteboards etc), Scanner Pro should come in handy for students or while doing business on the road.
Scanner Pro transforms iPhone into portable scanner in your pocket. It lets you scan multipage documents, email them and even upload to Dropbox, MobileMe iDisk or any other WebDAV enabled server. Evernote integration is there too.
