iPhone’s camera, email it as PDF.

DocScanner has got industry leading (link to a benchmark test) image processing algorithms which automatically turn the picture to look like you have scanned the document with a flatbed scanner. Document gets automatically recognized within the view finder in real time.
Using custom algorithms DocScanner takes most of the iPhone’s camera and corrects perspective, whiteness, noise and other parts of the image to produce beautiful and clear scans.

DocScanner is not limited to paper documents only. You can use it to make clear captures of meeting notes on a whiteboard and later on include those to your presentations. You can scan multipage documents such as your whole Moleskine notebook. It is great for scanning receipts of your business expenses. You can even set up a synchronization rule to email all of your receipts to your accountant.

Search text within your document library.

DocScanner has an internal OCR-function that recognizes text and turns the documents you have captured with the camera to searchable text. The matching text in searched words get highlighted. In addition you can also copy the recognized text and e.g. send it with e-mail.

If you are unfamiliar with Evernote, it is a cloud storage service for documents with lot of additional document related functionality, such as search and handwriting recognition. We happen to love Evernote and use it by ourselves. We have been working closely with them to make DocScanner the best Scanner App to feed your Evernote account. It has various ways to send a document to Evernote for different use cases. You can also set a synchronization rule to define even more specific use cases. Once you are up and running with the setup you can sync with one tap. DocScanner can be found in the Evernote Trunk too. You can set Evernote account up for free or buy their premium plan.

    BTW, suppose you have a page with a lot of curl or your light or background is not all that contrasting, there’s a good chance that you’ll want to help with the corner recognition when you receive a preview. Many have been this far already, and have noticed that you can grab the corners and move them into place. But have you noticed that you need only touch close to the corner in order to move it? That is, if you touch on your screen such that you can still see the corner, docScanner will recognize that you are moving the nearest corner to your finger. Rather than have the corner hidden under your finger, in this way, you can see where the corner will end up.

    Why is one page of a 2-page doc landscape, the other portrait? Can I rotate?

  7. Dave says:

    It seems there is no way to edit OCR’ed text in place. Sometimes the recognition is not perfect and being able to edit in place would be great.

    Please can you add the ability to preset the pixel width and height in the custom set up. I scan a lot of business cards to Evernote and the best setting is 450 wide by 350 high. Currently I have to set this manually for every scan to have a choice of my own presets would be very helpful.

    How do I get the OCR to do anything? I “spool” a document but don’t see anything returned? IS this being emailed somewhere?
    PLEASE HELP – as it is its useless to me – I can’t find any instructions on how / where to setup?

    the syncronization with Flash in Dark areas is not really good. The Flash is off before the Picture is taken.
    Please check it.
