The Genius Scan Iphone App: Scan Documents Easily

I would like to introduce you to an app that has really simplified my on-the go life. The applications name is Genius Scan and is available for free from the app store.

Genius Scan turns your iPhone into a mobile document scanner. I hate having to fill in a form, fire up the old PC, warm up the scanner, preview/scan/save as, and then attach to an email to get the document off. Well, no more of that. If you have a document that you want to scan, it does not matter where you are, pull out your iPhone (or iPod Touch 6th Gen) open the app, and snap-scan it with the phones built in camera. The quality of the scan depends on the quality off the camera, but I find that the 3Gs 3 mega-pixel cameras scan quality is more that good enough.

Genius Scan will then do a quality improvement process after which you can select the new document, and email as a PDF attachment. Really not much more to it.

This app is great for business men that quickly want to make a copy of a document at a meeting. A definite must download. Genius Scan is a free app, but having used it for more that 6 months, I’ll gladly pay for it as well.

Conclusion: If you are someone that keeps scanning and emailing documents, loves to have things done quick and easy then this is a must have application for you. You could get your hands on some Exchange 2010 hosting if you want to keep track of your emails and collaborate easily between your laptop and other computers too.
