Now we are in 2021, we have everything from a camera to an alarm clock on our phones. But what about the scanner is your smartphone can replace our old scanners? After using those apps for a long time finally now I can answer this question. Yes.! they can actually, they are better than them in many ways.

First of all, you can carry your phones so you can use those apps whenever you needed them which is not possible with previous scanners. Otherway those apps can scan documents quite well. Those apps can also recognize text in scanned documents thanks to using of OCR. Sharing a scanned document was never easy before, you can either save scan document to the cloud or email it to someone.

Here are the top 5 apps which I choose according to those features.

  • Simple interface
  • Scan Quality
  • Fast processing
  • Multiple page scanning and editing

According to me, those are most wanted features in any scanner apps.

#1. Simple Scan

You can scan a document, photos, invoice, business card, bill, contract, or memo and save it. It detects edges and converts photos to image or PDF documents. It offers some extra features like password protection for documents and also a set of pdf sizes(Letter, Legal, A4).

#2. CamScanner

Documents scanning apps saved me many-time from ridiculous situations. I always messed up my bills, reports and my valuable written ideas. After using those scanning apps my problem is almost finished, each of them is very good at their job. They well organize your every document.

These are the best among apps the apps I found. Although those offers same core features, there is a slight difference between each of them. If you don’t use a scanner that much then it makes no sense to buy or download an extra app. In this case you can go with Google drive.

If you are confused which one to choose, then try each one of them and see which one suits you best.

  1. First off I want to say superb blog! I had a quick question which I’d
    like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally
    lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?


  2. Howdy! This article could not be written any better! Looking at this post reminds me of my previous
    roommate! He always kept preaching about this. I will send this post to him.
    Pretty sure he’ll have a great read. Thanks for sharing!
