Scanning from a cell phone


The cameras in most cell phones make pretty good scanners.


That’s great for single images, but phones can also scan documents of several pages. 


On iPhones there’s a scanner in Notes. Open a new or existing note, tap the camera icon and tap Scan Documents. You can use the auto-capture option by bringing the document into the viewfinder, or use the shutter button or one of the volume buttons to capture the scan. 


For Android phones you can download an app called iScanner in Google Play. There are others, such as Adobe Scan. 


Once scanned, documents can be stored, emailed or sent in messages.
