Screen Shot 2012 08 21 at 1.52.17 PM 300x178 Good News About the Future of Document Scanner AppsThe major components affecting smartphone and tablet performance are evolving faster day by day. This progress is good news for the future of document scanner apps. Scanner apps require the most processing power during scanning and OCR. The faster the components, the faster the app can digitize and perform OCR.

We noticed in DocScanner 6 iOS‘s case that hardware processing power had increased significantly from the previous generation. For example, the third-generation Apple iPad can detect a document and digitize it in just a couple of seconds. The just released DocScanner S for Android does the same on Samsung Galaxy S III in about same amount of time. And when the iPhone 5 hits the shelves in September, it will surely reach the same level of performance as the iPad 3 and Galaxy S III.

Also the DocScanner app itself is getting faster. The latest version of DocScanner 6 iOS is 15 % faster than the previous one. It might be safe to say that in 1-2 years to come, you may expect a scanner app that is able to digitize a document in a blink of an eye with the latest hardware.

    Please fix the app as soon as possible: version 6.0.2 stops everytime after loading.
    When fixed, it’ll again be the best iPhone scanner app so far.
    Thank you!
