Our thanks to Smile for once again sponsoring the site this week. Scanning and saving documents from my iPhone is something we do often. The iPhone makes a great tool for capturing and saving business receipts when on the go. PDFpen Scan+ is one of the best scanning and OCR-ing apps out there. It’s super fast, easy to use, powerful, etc. Once you’ve “scanned” a document (by taking a photo of it) then what’s great about having the scanning and OCR all happen in-app is you can upload to Dropbox (or Evernote, or iCloud Drive, or Google Drive, or your own WebDAV or FTP server). It’s then easy to sort, search-for, and find those documents later if and when you need to.
