Scanner Pro adds iPad support, performance improvements
Readdle has released a major update to Scanner Pro adding native iPad support with a new user interface specifically designed for the new iPad. Originally released in 2009 for the iPhone, Scanner Pro allows users to “scan” documents using their device’s camera, allowing quick and easy capturing of business forms, receipts, paper notes and even handwritten sketches. Advanced image processing allows documents to be captured more effectively than simply taking a photo with a camera app, enhancing image quality for readability and providing such features as automatic edge detection, pre-defined page sizes, and previewing and saving results as PDF files with optional password protection that can then be uploading to services such as Dropbox, Evernote and Google Docs or sent out directly via e-mail.
Scanner Pro 4 is now a universal application with a new iPad user interface and significantly improved image processing performance. The higher-resolution camera on the third-generation iPad provides the ability to take reliable, high-quality scans within the app and the larger screen provides easier access for reading and managing scanned documents with the ability to view and manipulate the full document without the need for zooming and panning. The update also delivers near-instantaneous image processing, with speed enhancements of up to ten times faster than the prior version, allowing users to capture a picture and see a resulting PDF scan on their device in less than a second. Scanner Pro 4 requires iOS 4.3 or later and is available from the App Store for $7.
