No matter what you do there will most likely come a point in time where you'll need to scan something. Whether it be a picture, a document, or some form of identification, the time will come. Personally I have to scan at least a few things a week but that is just because of my job and I have to tell you there is nothing worse than having to use an actual scanner for this. In my use they are generally unreliable and a pain to use. There are just too many steps:
- Load your document into the scanner. Scan it
- Where is the file? Did the scan go through properly? This is especially tough at work where the scanners are networked.
- Find your file, load it into email, and send it.
Might seem like a small amount of steps but for me that is too much.
How about this for steps?
- Take a picture of the document using your phones camera.
- Send the document
This is what Genius Scan does. It has a lot of other options as well and the paid version has even more. Sure this wouldn't work for all your scanning needs especially if you wanted to scan a old picture, or something of that nature, but for me it works great.
