FineScanner is a free document scanner app for iPhone, to scan documents or books and create digital copies of them. Whether it is a book, receipt, slides, magazine, printed paper or hand-written text, you can easily scan any documents and store high-quality digital (electronics) copies as a JPG or PDF files. All the scanned documents can be saved either in your camera roll or in various cloud storages, like Evernote, Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, Box, and more.
Similar to other document scanner apps for iPhone, “FineScanner” is also pretty useful as it turns your iPhone into a simple document scanner. When you capture an image of the document using the app’s built-in camera, it automatically processes the image in order to create a digital copy. You can also import your existing photos from your camera roll. It also lets you crop and apply filters like original, B/W, color, and grayscale to the images.
Note: Some of the additional features, like text-recognition, BookScan technology, PDF password protection, and no ads can be used after a single in-app purchase.
