ABBYY Fine Scanner for iPhone Review

On November 5, 2012

Our review of the week is Fine Scanner from ABBYY.

We all have those days where we just need to quickly scan something, however instead of pulling out the huge scanner that’s lost somewhere in the back of the closet just collecting dust, it is much easier to simply grab your iPhone and get the job done. Currently the App Store offers several different Scanner apps, such as two popular choices, TurboScan and CamScanner, however Fine Scanner is really a worthy contestant for the throne.

What makes Fine Scanner good compared to many other apps is the fact that you can take several pictures in a row if you want your document to contain many pages, and then when exporting you can decide whether or not you want to send it as a whole document or in single pages. Another great feature is the file management itself, with its intuitive UI it really makes the app much easier to use.

Key features and benefits:

? Scan any printed or hand-written texts anywhere and anytime. With your iPhone in your pocket, you no longer need an unwieldy scanner!
