Scanner Pro App is my favorite scanning app to create PDF’s that can be opened in an annotation app such as PDF Expert (another Readdle app on sale!). We use this scanning app at our school (as well as for professional purposes) to adapt worksheets for students with dysgraphia. It is easy to use (our 4th graders use this independently…) and provides great scan quality. While there are many other scanning apps, Scanner Pro remains my pick!
For Readdle’s 6th Birthday (the developers of Scanner Pro) they are offering Scanner Pro for 1.99 (originally 6.99) -a great buy. Here’s some main features of the app (I love the fact that its workflow includes Dropbox, Evernote, and Google Drive – a bonus for Google Schools!)
Scanner Pro is not only great for completing worksheets for students but also is a great productivity app for administrative tasks:
+ Scan receipts to keep track of travel expenses
+ Convert paper notes and sketches into digital copies
+ Sign with a pen and scan a contract to email it back
+ Save interesting articles and book pages for further reading
Why would you use a scanning app instead of just taking a picture with the iPad camera? Quality, lighting can gray out your docs pretty significantly, with scanning apps, setting allow you to straighten, whiten and despeckle documents. So when you need a clean copy of something a scanning app can help. I recently had a few down moments and needed to scan a receipt for reimbursement and a quick scan (while waiting in my car…) then emailing it took care of that task in minutes, literally (don’t you just love it when you can be efficient?).
You know those forms that you have to sign and return? Scan them, fill them using Scanner Pro with your iPhone/iPad and forward them back in a jiff.
For Readdle’s Birthday they have reduced the price of all their quality apps, so if you are in the market for PDF management, or a calendar app you might check out the Readdle website. Also the folks at Readdle are responsive to questions and generous folks!
(For those of you who will be attending the OT’s with App’s Workshop in August, if you have funds I would suggest purchasing this app for 1.99!).
A great app for your teaching, personal, AT or OT mTool Kit!
Happy 6th Birthday Readdle! Thank you for your great apps!
