Turn Your Phone Into a Scanner

by Natalie Houston, Chronicle of Higher Ed

The CamScanner app, which is available for both Android and IOS mobile devices, allows you to use your phone to scan items directly to PDF. Some of the features I have found especially helpful include:

batch scanning

editing of the scanned image, including cropping and rotation

creation of user-defined tags for documents

easy uploading to Dropbox or sharing via email, social networks, etc.

There is a free version of the app, which limits the number of documents you can create and adds a watermark with the app name to them. Upgrade to the full version is handled from within the app. Of particular interest to ProfHacker readers: A free upgrade to the full version of the app is available to anyone who registers it with a .edu email address.
