If your 2023 resolution is to boost your productivity, start by archiving all that paper you’ve got lying around. The iScanner app turns your iPhone into a document control tool that makes scanning, sharing, tweaking and archiving everything you have on paper a snap.
Simply snap, scan and send
iScanner earned 4.8 out of five stars on the App Store by combining optical character recognition (aka OCR) and machine learning, enabling your iPhone to read any document. Just snap anything — on paper, in print or handwritten — and iScanner turns it into editable digital text. And that text can be shared, marked up and otherwise worked with digitally.
You can extract the text to a separate document or preserve it as is to incorporate into your project. iScanner offers PDF, JPG and TXT formats to keep originals, convert data into sendable formats and reconcile digital and paper documents.
When you shoot a document, iScanner applies advanced color correction and noise removal to create a pristine image. It also provides formats and modes for certain types of documents to get the best image. Paperwork applications, financial information and other materials can be packaged and sent quickly and safely without having to go to a copy shop or haul out your laptop.
Turn your phone into a portable scanner
iScanner also has a convenient toolkit for daily information gathering. A QR code scanner pops open links in printed materials without needing to swap apps. Measuring tools check dimensions when there isn’t a ruler handy. iScanner will even count piles of objects and answer printed math equations as needed, leading to praise from Gizmodo and other outlets.
Paper is still a part of our lives, but it doesn’t have to overwhelm our spaces. A lifetime subscription to iScanner puts document control and protection in your pocket for $39.99. That’s 79% off the $199 MSRP.
