It’s been completely redesigned for the iPad and boasts a wealth of strong features. For starters, it can scan documents, business cards, receipts, whiteboards and even multipage documents. It also has links to Dropbox, Google Docs, and Evernote for file storage – a very nice thing to see.

I’ve been giving the app a quick try this afternoon with business cards and a couple random documents – I haven’t mastered getting the best out of it yet but it works well. I can’t say I often have a need for a scanning app on the iPad but (spoken like The Most Interesting Man in the World) I think I’m going to
prefer find Scanner Pro very useful.
Here’s an App Store link for Scanner Pro; it’s priced at $6.99.
