That’s why I’m interested in apps that increase my productivity and help me use my time wisely.
I have a couple of requirements for go-to apps; they must:
- Be available on both desktop and mobile platforms
- Integrate with other apps and services I use.
Scannable is dead simple to use; it automatically finds the document, captures it quickly and allows you to share or save it in whatever way you wish with one tap.
Heres how it works.
Hold your phone over the document you wish to scan (This happens to be my Word Origin of the Day calendar).
It’s important that the document is sitting on a contrasting background — white paper, dark desk or table. When the scan is finished, you’ll see this screen.
You can share your document via email or text, export it to iCloud apps, send it to Pocket, Facebook, Twitter or save it to your iPhone Camera Roll. I save my scanned documents to Evernote, which can process the text inside the document so it’s searchable.
I see myriad uses for this – scanning business cards, receipts, family documents … pretty much anything you need to keep, organize, and remember.
If you’re trying to reduce clutter in your home or office, try it out. Best of all, it’s free.
