Using your mobile device to scan documents

Daniel Trout, a liaison librarian at Miner Library, reviewed three scanning apps in the recent June/July 2015 edition of the MLA News. 

Using your smartphone or mobile device to instantly scan documents can be inexpensive and convenient using the right tools.  TurboScan,  Genius Scan and CamScanner are available for both Android and Apple devices.  Some offer free versions, but the majority of apps cost between $4.99 and $6.99 and allow scanned documents to be emailed from the app and uploaded to a variety of cloud-based storage services.

Evernoteand Google Drive also provide the ability to scan documents via the application and upload to the cloud instantly.
