CamScanner – Scan Documents and Create PDFs With Your Android Device


CamScanner is an Android app that you can use to scan documents, business cards, receipts, or any other pieces of paper that you have.

To use CamScanner just center your phone or tablet’s camera over a document and take a picture. CamScanner then converts your image to a PDF that you can send to DropBox, Evernote, Google Docs, and many other online storage services. CamScanner provides options for trimming the edges of your scanned documents before converting to PDF. You can scan documents and save them as individual files or combine scans into one file.

CamScanner is available as a free Android app or as a paid app. The free version watermarks your scans and has advertising in the app. The paid version removes the watermarks and advertising.

CamScanner could be useful for teachers and students alike. If as a teacher you have an old document that want save in digital format without re-typing it, take a picture of it with CamScanner and save it. Give it a try, I think you’ll like it. I just used it to scan a bunch of toll receipts from a recent trip to Boston ($3 to cross the Tobin Bridge?! That’s ridiculous!)
