Almost on a daily basis, we come across some important documents to be filed or some useful newspaper ads to be saved or any newspaper article to be stored. A common way of getting all this done is by taking a quick picture from our smartphone camera and sharing with everyone on Facebook or Whatsapp. Though it is a feasible solution, you would have seen that the outcome is not pretty good. The pictures of newspaper articles or ads or any text documents are not clear enough for smooth reading.
For this purpose, mobile scanner apps have been made available by mobile app developers for Android and iOS. One of the leading document and QR code scanning app for iOS and Android devices is ‘Scanbot’. The biggest benefit with this document scanning app is that it doesn’t produce a blur image and so makes it relatively easy to read the text, however small it may be.
You can easily scan business cards, bills or receipts, newspaper articles, agreements, minutes of meeting, gift vouchers, etc. with this amazing PDF document scanner application.
In this article, we shall go through the features of Scanbot Mobile Scanner app and understand the process of how to scan documents and QR Codes in Android & iOS using Scanbot.
