CamScanner – Phone to Scanner – So Good Your Head May Explode

CamScanner – Phone To Scanner

 

Let’s have a quick look at what handy functions my Android phone fulfills…

Phone, CHECK. Texts & emails, CHECK. Twitter/Facebook, CHECK. MP3 Player, CHECK. Camera, CHECK. Sat Nav, CHECK. Portable Scanner, CHECK. Wait what? A scanner. Yes that’s right, your Android phone is now a portable document scanner.

The crop selection screen is ace. There's even a zoom for where your finger is.

Using CamScanner you can scan and manage your documents simply by taking pictures of them with the camera on your phone. The app boasts a smart image cropping and enhancement algorithm to ensure the scanned images are clear and recognizable. The app comes with a PDF based tutorial that you can view in the app itself, this is worth a quick look so you can get to grips with how everything works. The app seems slightly daunting at first but after a small amount of use it soon becomes second nature.
Cam Scanner can be used with pictures taken on your camera or any pictures you already have saved in your gallery. The camera scanning side of things is very impressive, the cropping tools are intuitive and helpful so you’ll always get the exact image that you want. The built-in image enhancer does an excellent job of beefing up your scanned pictures so they look their best when viewed on a PC. Once your images are taken you can arrange what order they need to go in and then combine them into a PDF file that you can share with Dropbox, Gmail, Evernote, Google Docs or any other client that will support it. Just a quick heads up on the free version, it’s described as “limited docs/pages for trial version” but there’s nothing specific in just how limited it is.
Cam Scanner is a genius idea that works really well on a mobile phone. It may not be a tool that everyone needs but it does what it does very well.
