PDF scanner apps

1.

CamScanner

-

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intsig.camscanner&hl=en

CamScanner is a breeze to use, and you can test out the

free version via the Market link above. Snap a
photo of your document and pull up the cropping tool. The app will auto
-
detect the edges of the paper,
but the slick drag
-
and
-
snap guides will help you fine tune the dimensions.

2.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.intsig.camscanner&hl=en


This app scans directly to PDF with ease. The interface
couldn't be cleaner, and while
he cropping tools
aren't as sna
zzy as CamScanner's, they get the job done.

There are image enhancement features, but in our testing, they weren't as precise as CamScanner's.

3.
Document Scanner

-

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pwnwithyourphone.documentscanner&hl=en

A
lso lets you upload directly to Google Docs, DropBox, and Box.net. It even has Evernote integration
--

a
nice touch. Scan multiple pages in succession
and email them to your heart's content.

The trial version will only last you seven days, but that should give you the time to decide if you're ready
to throw down four bucks on the real deal.

Price: Free / $3.98 for full version


3.

Droid Scan Pro PDF

-

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.trans_code.android.droidscan&hl=en

Droid Scan works similarly to the aforementioned apps with one exception

--

it'll send you out to the
system camera to grab the image. No big deal
--

in reality, the other apps are simply wrapping the native
camera with their interface.

Once you're done shooting, Droid Scan picks right back up where you left off and gets down
to image
processing quickly.

The app has smart edge detection, intuitive (if small) color and contrast controls, and a final menu that
lets you select the docs you want to save down as either JPEGs or PDFs (though PDF functionality is only
available in the

paid version).

Price: Free / $4.99 for PDF functionality

4.

Scan to PDF

Free
-

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.scan.to.pdf.trial&hl=en

Scan to PDF
scores big on interface simplicity. It's easy to start scanning or adjust the settings right from
the first screen.

The app jumps over to the system camera by default (though you can adjust this setting), and offers
great image processing and enhancement,
even in low light.

The cropping function is intuitive but can be awkward
--

rather than dragging and snapping at the
corners, you'll have to pull the edges. Occasionally, your fingers will run out of screen or they'll
accidentally drag the entire frame awa
y from the edge. However, This quirk is far from a deal breaker,
and the excellent gallery viewer more than makes up for it.

The free version of Scan to PDF does it all, but if you like it and use it regularly, you can show the devs a
little love with a $.
99 upgrade.

Price: Free / $.99 optional purchase for a job well done.


5.

PDF Scanner

-

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.melonmobile.and
roid.pdfscanner&hl=en

For those looking for the dead
-
simple option, PDF Scanner is the way to go. This no
-
frills app cuts right
to the quick.

Add pages by hitting scan. The camera viewfinder that appears has no buttons, so you'll have to just tap
the
screen to focus and snap.

The camera makes use of your phone's flash, which is helpful when scanning in low light. But be sure to
frame and focus your image carefully because there's no crop or image enhancement here. Snap away
until your document is compl
ete, then email the PDF to its destination.

Regrettably, there's not trial version of this app, but if you're looking for a way to generate PDF scans
quickly and easily, have no qualms dropping your coin here.

Price: $1.99
