Quick Look: Scan2pdf Mobile (Video Demo and Review)

Scan2pdf Mobile has become one of my favorite apps. I’m a professor, and I give my students a lot of electronic readings. Scan2PDF mobile has made my semester so much easier. In this video,  I demo it and show how simple it is to use. There is one minor bug, and I show you why it’s not a big deal. I also give you some tips for scanning pages from books. Check the link below the video, and you’ll find a sample PDF that I created with this precious app.

    Thanks for this – (long time lurker, first time poster) – I am a Workers Comp. attny., and I send a lot of one page documents out to insurance carriers – this is an amazingly quick way to get a document off my desk and into an email very very quickly.

    It may work for you if you need something quick and dirty…for my purposes (receipt tracking), I found it not very useful. It doesn't appear to crop to the image in the foreground (it just makes the entire picture into a PDF), and it definitely isn't an image that I'd provide to clients/customers. To be honest…why not just take a picture with the built in camera and email it? Everyone can open a jpeg, right?

    What is the advantage to using this app instead of using your camera?

    Hi Chris,

    If I were doing smaller receipts, and there were no cropping function – then I'd snap a picture over some matching background. For example, if the receipt were white paper, set the receipt on white paper.

    Regarding both questions about using the camera instead. I think you might be right that for a single page, scan2PDF doesn't provide a significant advantage over the native camera client.

    However, for my purposes (providing students with electronic readings of books) the native camera is completely insufficient. Scan2PDF combines multiple pages into a single PDF document. To send my students an electronic reading of 20 pages, I'd have to email 20 different files.
