Scanner Pro

Scanner Pro is a great tool if you ever find yourself needing a copy of a document, but don’t happen to have a scanner with you. You basically take a picture of a page with your iPhone, adjust the brightness and contrast, and voila! You have a copy of the document stored to your phone.

Sounds a little like a regular photo app, right? Well, Readdle developed this app specifically to take good pictures and give you plenty of options. After you have taken a picture, set the corners or crop your photo, then adjust the brightness accordingly, after you are finished editing, pick your route of delivery. This is where I believe the app goes above and beyond a normal photo app that just takes good pictures. After editing the scanned copy of the document, you can email it as a PDF, upload it to Evernote, and my favorite, post it on Google Docs.

I played around with Scanner Pro for a while and although it can’t replicate an actual scanner, it comes pretty close. Just make sure you’re in a well-lit area with no shadows, and your paper is flat. I “scanned” some notes from my class as well as a typed paper. The notes came out ok, and the typed paper came out even better. I was able to adjust the brightness and that helped make my documents more clear. I emailed my PDF to myself, however, for some reason, it took about 5 minutes for the document to actually send.
The process to do all of this was easy; the iPhone app walks you through each stage. A map appears on the screen before you begin to scan your image, which gives you a clear idea of the steps you will take and your delivery options. I am using an iPhone 3G, this means I have a fixed focus lens; therefore my images came out clear. However, the iPhone 3GS doesn’t have a fixed focus lens and this may affect your pictures. Scanner Pro does have an image stabilizing setting you can turn on if you’ve got a shaky hand.

Whew! This is a long review for a reason, this iPhone app is packed full of options, making the scanner-less dilemma non-existent. I’ve had this app for two days and I’ve already put it to frequent use. For $6.99 this app is well worth the money for the convenience it offers.
