Scanner Pro: Turn your iOS device into a personal scanner.

This week we would like to highlight Scanner Pro for iOS as our App of the Week. Scanner Pro is a wonderful app that allows users to turn their iPhones and iPads into a personal, hand held scanner. Scanner Pro uses special algorithms to remove shadows, sharpen images and correct perspectives so that what you have from your iOS device camera is much more than just a photograph.

Scanner Pro allows users to share scans via email or to backup via Dropbox, Evernote or Google Drive. Scanner Pro also takes advantage of iCloud sync so that you have all your scans available across all iOS devices. Some of the more popular uses of Scanner Pro include:

  • Scanning receipts to keep track of travel expenses
  • Converting paper notes and sketches into digital copies
  • Signing with a pen and scan a contract to email it back
  • Saving interesting articles and book pages for further reading

We chose Scanner Pro as App of the Week because of its portability and versatility as an app. It solves a problem that a lot of people have (not having a scanner easily accessible) and is very affordable. Scanner Pro developer, Readdle, is actually offering the app at a discount to celebrate 6 million downloads. It is currently $2.99, which is 50% off of the regular retail price. There are also in-app purchases available that allow users to fax scans that they have saved. For more information on Scanner Pro visit
