One of our staff members recently came across this Apple application which acts as a portable scanning facility It can be downloaded for FREE from the app store on your iphone.
The idea is you can use an image in your photo library/take a new picture then turn it into a quality image of a document you may want to send yourself or others by email. This can be useful if
- you are out and about and need to send yourself a PDF/JPEG document to your home email address to view later.
- you are out and you would like to send a copy of a file to someone else.
- you don't have a scanner.
To use the app (after downloading of course!):
- select an existing photo on your phone, or take a new photo
- select an enhancement option:
- no enhancement (leave the picture as it is)
- black and white
- email the picture as a PDF file or JPEG file with a small, medium, large or actual file size.
If you are interested in this app please refer to the official website.
