Evernote today released a new iPhone and iPad app that adds scanning to its repertoire of available services. The new Evernote Scannable app debuted last year as a beta service and is now publicly available in the iOS App Store.

Similar to competing scanning apps, Evernote Scannable includes an automatic scanning feature that allows users to scan a document simply by launching the app. Upon launch, the app will locate the document in the camera's field of view, initiate the scan and sharpen the contents to improve image quality.

Once scanned, the document can be uploaded to Evernote in a format that makes it searchable. Alternatively, scans can be uploaded to iCloud or shared via AirDrop, text messaging or email. If the scanned document is a business card, the Evernote service will automatically associate the scanned information with the contact's LinkedIn account. The new Scannable app also will serve as a controller for the ScanSnap Evernote Edition Scanner.

Scannable moves paper forward. Scan contracts, receipts, business cards, and any paper that comes your way. Save or share documents instantly and move on.

Automatically capture high-quality scans anywhere
- Scan fast: Point your camera at documents, Post-it® Notes, or whiteboards. Scannable immediately captures them.
- Save time: Scannable automatically rotates, crops, and adjusts images so your scans are clear and easy to read.
- Share or save: Send documents to colleagues via email or text, or save them to Evernote and other apps.

The Evernote Scannable app is available for free from the iOS App Store. [Direct Link]

Another plus for Scanner Pro. Scanned my boss's notepad yesterday as asked and he was impressed at the clarity.
I've got a scansnap ix500 for the post now, and in fact I'm finally putting my trusty 3 year old Doxie on eBay this weekend as ScannerPro has taken over as my ad-hoc scanning solution.

My biggest use of the evernote app itself is taking photos rather than the doc photo - usually when we're in a shop and my kids say "I;d like that for a present" so it goes into the "wants" notebook. Makes Christmas & birthdays so much easier when asked by family what they would like!

Great use-cases! We are happy you enjoy Scanner Pro)

Our team is working on new update to Scanner Pro now. Stay tuned;)

Best regards,

Why would someone need this if they already have Evernote which has document scanning built in already?

I dunno. But it was much faster to open, acquire, scan and upload to my Evernote account than it was to use the Evernote app to do the same.

When you take the shot, it appears at the bottom as a gallery. If you click on it, it'll bring up a page and at the bottom it'll have the title you can click on and edit.

Excellent, thank you!
