Document Scanner Nearly Picture Perfect

Price: $4.99    Score: 9/10    By Michael EssanyDocument Scanner

We finally inhabit an era where we no longer need to lug around bulky, expensive, and altogether unwieldy equipment in order to thrive as professionals on the go. And while the business of mobile office equipment is booming, the greatest of convenience results from new features and services provided by the devices we already have with us.

In this regard, the iPhone Document Scanner app from Zirak S.R.L. is the latest must-have application for the most mobile of mobile professionals.

The $4.99 app, appropriately titled “Document Scanner,” enables you to take pictures, enhance them, combine them into multipage PDF documents, and transfer them over Wi-Fi, e-mail or Internet. To understand how well the app works, its imperative to understand how well the iPhone works as a camera. In proper lighting, the camera works sufficiently well enough to make this app very purposeful. In less than ideal settings, however, like a poorly lit library or office, it may be difficult to secure the best scan possible.

But, truth be told, the image correction and enhancement components of the application are among the best available through any application.

The app itself, though, works seamlessly and includes all the attributes you would expect and demand of a scanner – but all for an unbeatable price.

Other notable features of Document Scanner include:

  • Combine pictures into multipage PDF documents
  • Store any number of pictures and PDF documents
  • Protect PDF documents with a password
  • Send pictures and documents via e-mail
  • Pictures can also be exported to iPhone’s camera roll or copied to the clipboard

If you’re wondering, Document Scanner only requires an Internet connection for sharing scanned images via e-mail or Google Docs.

Overall, its an outstanding application that will leave many wishing they had been privy to such an app much, much earlier in their professional lives.

Document Scanner requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later and is compatible with both iPhone and iPod Touch.

    I’m not sure I can understand why you would say that the program is compatible with the iPod Touch since the point is to take photos with the iPhone camera.

    I mean, the program may run on the Touch but what are you going to do with it?

  2. The developer states on iTunes that the app is compatible with both iPhone and iPod Touch, which is why that is stated in this review – but I’m inclined to agree with you that it’s misleading (unless you have an external camera accessory).

    Hi guys I’m Lorenzo from Zirak.
    – I have to to say that the statement: “Document Scanner requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later and is compatible with both iPhone and iPod Touch” it’s not ours. That part of itunes is written by the appstore staff. We only publish the description and the screenshots. So please be more careful when you accuse someone to be misleading.

    – By the way it’s also written that the app REQUIRES iPhone OS 3.1 or later, even if it’s compatible with iPod touch. Altought I’m agree it’s ambiguous but

    – The fact that is compatible with iPod Touch is because you can import pictures from external devices…
