Readdle today announced the release of Scanner Pro 1.1, new version of their popular iPhone application that transforms the device into portable scanner. Scanner Pro 1.1 introduces highly anticipated Evernote integration that lets people convert printed documents, receipts and even handwritten notes into searchable information accessible from anywhere.
Scanner Pro processes a photo of a poorly lighted document, a snapshot of a business card at a wacky angle, or an off-kilter receipt into a straightened, cleaner version of its former self. Version 1.1 is capable to save these enhanced images directly to the Evernote accounts and allows Evernote recognition servers to convert these scans into searchable notes. Both free and premium Evernote users can use this integration.
To make integration more robust, Scanner Pro downloads information about tags and notebooks of the particular Evernote subscriber. Thus appropriate set of tags and notebook for upload can be chosen directly from Scanner Pro application.
"We are excited to discover new experience for iPhone users. Joint power of Scanner Pro and Evernote is so impressive that we can't even count all possible usages for this bundle", says Igor Zhadanov, Readdle CEO. "Capturing notes, business cards, gym schedules or even entire agreements combined with Evernote's flexible tagging system allows you to collect and access any information you may need in your everyday life."
At the same time Scanner Pro 1.1 implements several user suggested improvements like more stylish, intuitive and easy to use interface and significantly improved image processing engine. New version produces sharper and whiter images, features real time image adjustments and adds image export to iPhone photo library. The latter function allows usage of Scanner Pro together with popular iPhone fax applications.
Pricing and Availability:
Scanner Pro 1.1 is available on Apple App Store at $6.99 (USD) to the new customers and as a free upgrade for existing users. The application is compatible with iPhones running iPhone OS 2.2.1 and later.
