How CamScanner Can Turn Your Android into a Scanner
If you’re a busy professional who needs to scan documents on the go, take a look at this helpful app that will let you scan from your phone.
In the last 10+ years, telecommuting jobs have grown 103%, with almost 3% of the American workforce now working from home at least half the time. It makes sense, too, what with the portability and ease of netbooks and simple word processing computers that can be taken and used everywhere. But not having a computer around doesn’t mean you can’t easily have an entire office set up right in front of you. In fact, it’s entirely possible to run a whole office’s worth of work right from your smartphone. One app that’s helping with this is CamScanner, a smartphone PDF creator.
CamScanner is a free Android app that allows users to scan, store, sync and collaborate on content across smartphones, tablets, and computers. CamScanner features a mobile scanner that works by using a camera function within the app. After snapping a picture of the paper you want to scan, the app then recognizes the corners of the sheet and outlines it to crop it in a way that makes it look perfect. The text is crisp and readable and the document is safe to share with other people.
With CamScanner, it is also possible to extract text from an image by using OCR (optical character recognition). Users can also instantly print out documents in the app with a nearby printer or directly fax documents to over 30 countries right from the app itself. In addition, it is possible to invite friends or colleagues to view or comment on the scans in a group, to make annotations or add customized watermarks on the scans, to set passcodes for viewing important documents, and to sync documents to any smartphone, tablet, or computer.
Apps like CamScanner are revolutionizing smartphone technology and expanding their reach and use in ways never before possible. If you’re planning on making your phone into a multi-functional tool, it’s important to make sure that it’s running safely and efficiently. That’s where PSafe comes in. PSafe not only provides software that keeps users safe from viruses, malware, and malicious attacks, but also gives information that educates them about best practices to avoid threats. It’s 2016. Make your smartphone work for you.
