How do you make a PDF with
your Android, iPhone or other Smartphone device?
With CamScanner. CamScanner app review.
CamScanner is an app that claims you can easily
create a PDF of any document by simply taking a
picture of it with your camera and then using their
app to convert it into a PDF. Yeah right. So how did
that work out for me? Perfectly.
I love productivity apps (see my review of the
Top Three Productivity Apps of 2011), but I
usually don't go looking for them unless I need to
be productive in a manner which requires an app that
I don't have.
So, there I was in need of a copy of my Driver's
License so that I could confirm my identity and get
paid by a client. But I wasn't near my computer or a
scanner. Enter Google Play and the CamScanner app.
I downloaded it, opened it and took a picture of my
license. When I was preparing to save it, the app
intuitively knew that I wanted only the license and
not the area around it, and cropped it perfectly for
me. I then saved it on my SD card and attached it to
an email which I sent to the client who then
forwarded my payment to PayPal.
The features of CamScanner include:
• Auto crop and auto enhance
• Ability to scan a multi-page document
• Share document by email of SMS
• Upload to cloud storage (GoogleDocs, Box, Dropbox,
And it all works as described. Life is good. So is
