Nowadays, so many of the things we do in life and business are so much easier to accomplish when trying to combine and navigate a busy personal life with an equally busy business life because of the ability to use our Smartphones to conduct business. Some may curse the constant connectivity our mobile devices provide, while others embrace and appreciate being able to conduct business on the go. I know I’m certainly one of the latter.
But not everything we’ve needed to accomplish when using our mobile devices to get things done has been as easy as apple pie. One constant has been the continuous struggle when attempting to scan receipts or PDF’s, and then find them again, on our phones, fast. The answer is an app called TurboScan, by PikSoft (not to be confused with TurboScanner by Tri Li). TurboScan turns your iPhone into a multipage scanner for documents, receipts, notes, whiteboards and other text. This little app makes it so easy to quickly scan your documents to store or email them as multipage PDF or JPEG files. Great for saving receipts and invoices when you’re trying to go paperless, or if you want to quickly shoot a document off to someone for review.
Users agree that the photo cropping tool is impressive as well. Much like a QR code reader lasers in on a code, the app identifies the document you wish to scan, even if there is background clutter (as in your desk is mess). The app focuses in on the document, crops it, scans it and uploads it quickly. TurboScan can be found in the iTunes store. While not a free app, it’s a mere $2.99. A bargain any way you look at it.
