Today Readdle announces the release of Scanner Pro 1.0, an iPhone application that transforms the device into portable scanner. It lets iPhone owners scan multi page documents into PDF files, send them by email, access over Wi-Fi and even upload to MobileMe iDisk or any other WebDAV enabled server. Scanner Pro is available exclusively on the Apple App Store at USD $6.99.
Scanner Pro is designed to scan multi page documents and transform them into industry standard PDF files. It allows people to set password on PDF document to protect data with 40-bit RC4 level encryption. This feature is very important for those who use iPhones for work since many business documents contain sensible information that should be protected from unauthorised access after scanning.
To overcome weaknesses of the iPhone camera, Scanner Pro uses special algorithms to enhance image quality. Aditionally, users can manually adjust brightness and contrast to make text look even better. Also, since major documents are text based, Scanner Pro can automatically convert all documents into grayscale thus greatly reducing size of the resulting document.
Scanner Pro supports a number of ways to share PDF documents after scanning. The file can be uploaded to MobileMe iDisk, Box.Net, Humyo and any other WebDAV enabled file storage; sent by email using current iPhone Mail account and even transferred to Mac or PC computer over Wi-Fi.
"Situations when there is printed document that should be send by email and there is no scanner nearby is familiar to many business people including myself," explains Alexander Tyagulsky, Readdle CMO. "Scanner Pro is made to save the day when this happens to you."
