Genius Scan: Less Using An Actual Scanner!

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.  

Document not lined up? The app can help with that.

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.
