How to Digitize Your Smartphone Text

Has the child forgotten to give your permission for an excursion?  Have them take a picture of it and send it to you.  Then use your iPhone's Notes app to scan and sign it without having to download any third-party apps.

Maybe you have a flatbed scanner at home or maybe one of those “all-in-one” printers/scanners/copiers, but did you know that your smartphone’s camera can also double as a flatbed scanner?

Not only is it quick and convenient to scan something when you’re away from your computer, but the quality is surprisingly good, thanks to much better camera sensors and smarter software.

Your iPhone or Android device is also ideal for digitizing old photos (in picture frames, albums or hanging on the wall), documents (menus, contracts, vaccination certificate), notes, business cards, whiteboards and receipts (great for expense tracking or reimbursement) – and then save these images for when you need them or send them to someone else, if you prefer, via email or text.

Obviously a “scan” really means taking a “picture” of what you’re pointing the camera at, but the technology can go further than that.
