Adobe Scan turns your documents, receipts & more into editable PDFs

Adobe-Scan-e1496301178192

Users can scan on a phone and upload to Document Cloud to edit on a laptop then continue working with the document on a tablet. If you are wondering why you should opt for Adobe's app over the existing scanning apps available on Google Play store or Apple's App Store, the new scanning app comes with Adobe Document Cloud integration.

The documents you scan in on mobile will be automatically uploaded to your Adobe Document Cloud account, where you can store them online, share with others. But a lot of digital smarts are employed behind the scenes. Snap a picture of any document or anything with printed text and Adobe Scan will automatically convert it into digital text that can be selected, copied or annotated with Acrobat Reader DC or Acrobat DC. That image could be a photo of a receipt, business card or letter, but it also works with shots taken of whiteboards, video screens or even three-dimensional items such as a designer's mood board. Do you see yourself using it?

Thanks to Adobe's new app, you'll never need to painstakingly scan in documents ever again. The files can also be stored locally if desired.

That's thanks to the company's use of optical character recognition.
