Gone are the days when one had to be at the office to scan and fax documents before the work day was done. The iPhone Scanner&Fax application takes the concept of mobile office gadgets to the next level by augmenting the iPhone with a capability that will be much appreciated by those who find themselves at work while on the go.
Developed by Zirak S.R.L., The Scanner&Fax app provides users with a pocket-accessible fax machine and scanner that effectively enables mobile professionals to conduct business beyond the cubicle’s boundaries.
It works as you might expect. The iPhone’s camera serves as a scanner. The application’s photo enhancing properties enables users to spruce up the look of the document before faxing it off, transferring it over Wi-Fi, or incorporating the scanned image into a PDF document.
Other features include:
- Store any number of pictures and PDF documents
- Protect PDF documents with a password
- Archive and share the documents
- Send faxes worldwide
- Send a cover-only fax
- Browse trough sent faxes history, and unsent faxes list
This one little app packs a pretty substantial punch. And, best of all, Scanner&Fax requires no Internet connection except for e-mail, Internet sharing and fax sending.
Fast and simple to use, the only potential messy aspect of the app is the possibility of a single fax spanning more than one page – that is, of course, if the scanned document’s dimensions extend beyond the dimensions of one page. Overall, it’s no different that similar glitches experienced by a real-life fax machine.
Scanner & Fax is a top notch app for a remarkably reasonable price.
Scanner&Fax requires iPhone OS 3.1 or later and is only compatible with iPhone 3GS.
