Present generation smart phones such as android phones, iPhones and all otherwindows Mobiles can be turned as Scanners.
If you are on travel and want to scan a page/photo and send it to somebody. Instead of searching for scanner around the place you can simply use your smartphone such as Motorola DROID, Google Nexus One, Apple iPhone to scan documents.
This trick works if you install an application called ‘Scan2PDF‘ on your phone.
‘‘Scan2PDF‘ is a brilliant application, which scans any document provided your phone is equipped with camera with more than 1 Mega Pixel. After scanning you can convert it to PDF and can even mail.
‘Scan2PDF’ is available in Andriod Market and iPhone App Store. Very soon it will be available for Blackberry phones also.
Free version of Scan2PDF writes a watermark on scanned documents, still it is a better choice as it saves us from searching a Scanner/Photocopier/Fax machine.
Ofcourse there is a paid version also.
