In the App Store there are already a bunch of really good applications for the iPhone allowing user to scan documents. Mostly they obtained their popularity thanks to the fantastic camera devices. This review will help to choose the most suitable iOS programs you can apply for scanning documents.
Scanner Pro - your pocket secretary for scanning any documents!
Price in the AppStore: $1.99
With this small and comparatively cheap iOS program you will be able to scan multipage documents, upload the scans to Dropbox and Evernote. The program is easy to use, but it doesn’t mean that it is not rich in settings that will allow you to scan any document you want.
The functional of this application provides the standard and smart scanning of documents, business cards, receipts, notes, etc. Scanner Pro can work with scanning multiple pages, allowing you to edit or combine them after a multiple scanning completion. The application automatically selects the type of document being scanned to provide the highest quality of a scan.
Upon completion of scanning a user can save it to PDF format and even protect it with a password and then send it to Dropbox, iDisk, Evernote, Google Docs or any other cloud or data storage servers. In addition, scanned documents can be sent by e-mail or fax. This iOs scanner is worthy of special attention. Functionality and quality of a scan put it in first place among and comparing to other iOS scanners this program works in the best way so far.
JotNot Scanner Pro – another good and cheap scanner for your iPhone!

If you didn’t like the major rival of this program Scanner Pr described above then JotNot Scanner Pro can serve as a good replacement. This application contains similar functions. JotNot is also able to work with multipage documents, supports sending scanned documents via fax, a cloud server, data storage online sites and it has the function of stabilizing the camera for better scanning. This scanner works with files in the formats PDF, PNG and JPEG. IMHO, it has the more appealing interface than Scanner Pro and the program itself is a really good choice fro the same price.

It does not matter what kind of document you need to scan - a book, poster, credit card, picture, article, map or something else – JotNot Scanner Pro will scan it in the best possible way.
