    Question Document Scanner

    I am going on a business trip next week and I know i will need to be scanning some documents to send back to the office. Does anyone have any recommendations or horror stories on any document scanners? I found a few on Appbrain, but I like to get people's opinion on apps before I shell out money. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Default Document Scanner

    I like "Document Scanner" a lot. It works great on my Droid. The best thing is you can try it full featured for a week and then decide to buy, maybe even after your trip. This app even lets you upload your PDF to Google Docs.

    I use Scan2pdf for basic personal scanning... nothing professional.

    Other than DocScanner, do any of the other apps have a cropping feature?

    I don't see that option (cropping) in Scan2PDF. While I was looking I did find a nice option I didn't know was in there. You can import any photos on the phone into the program and make a pdf. DInc

    I downloaded Document Scanner trial to compare it to Scan2PDF. I will be uninstalling it because it kept telling me the picture I took was low resolution, even though I have my phone to take pictures at high resolution (8 mp). DInc.

    What features are most important to you? Do you need it to make a PDF? Multipage scans? Cropping?

    Default Document Scanner

    My understanding is that Scan2pdf is highly overrated and priced given that it it basic scan app with no special features. PC World recently recommended Document Scanner.

    I just tried document scanner and was very disappointed in the results. I don't knwo if has something to do with my Droid X, or if it's this app. Basically, I scanned a 3 page document using the macro setting and the 8MP setting on the camera......the result was that the document was not legible for review.

    I noticed that in the camera settings within the app, they recommend (for large MP cameras) using the camera app within the aplication and not the stock camera function of your phone.

    I like Scan2Pdf, great outfit, used the Windows app for years, had an issue once, and got an immediate response. Can't say enough good. Tried another on the Droid which immediately hosed my camera and had to restart. This one does what it's supposed to.

    I tried to purchase DocScanner, but due to a market error the app couldn't be purchased, so I decided to beta test Droid Scan 2.

    It has crop features, perspective adjustment and contrast adjustments and it does work quite well for receipts (that what I've been using it for), but it doesn't have multi-page abilities or Evernote integration (it will allow you to SHARE with Evernote, but I find that it's an extra step compared with full integration.

    There is a demo available if you want to try (it IS the most expensive scanner app I've found, which may be a problem for many people):
