Cam Scanner

CamScanner is an app that I turn to frequently. As you might guess, it’s an app for, well, scanning documents. It’s turned my phone into a scanner and almost completely eliminated any need to use anything else.

CamScanner is very intuitive to use. Just hold your device over the document you want to scan and proceed. Once you have an initial scan, the app will crop, brighten and straighten out the image. Scans can be exported in a variety of formats including pdf and jpg and can be easily emailed or uploaded to social media. Best of all, the quality of the images made using CamScanner is significantly superior to anything photographed with the iPhone camera.

In Your Classroom

Cam Scanner makes it incredibly easy to take high-quality photos on the fly. Use it to:

  • Document students’ work
  • Save documents to your phone that you’d like to be able to quickly reference
  • Share documents with others or with your own cloud-sharing

To get CamScanner, download the iPhone app or iPad app. You can create an account to access cloud storage space (limited to 200 MB for the free account or 10G if you spring for a premium subscription) or just save your scans to your device.
