The beauty of having an iPhone onhand? You can take photos of stuff you have to remember, instead of jotting everything down. But there's an even better way, and it's called JotNot.

-The beauty of having an iPhone on hand? You can take photos of stuff you have to remember instead of jotting them down. But there's an even better way and it's called JotNot. I'm Jessica Dolcourt. This is CNET and you're gonna tap this app. JotNot is a free scanning app that's ideal for capturing things like whiteboard scribbles, receipts, and documents. Just take a photo of the document from your photo gallery or from the camera. You can rotate the image and define the corners, and there are also presets to make the scanned image look its best. The app goes beyond plain photography though because it removes image noise and shadows. After processing the picture, you can rename the file and tag it. Then, fax the image or print it for later if you have a printer paired with your iPhone. However, you will need to purchase credits if you want to fax the file from your phone. To help keep things smooth, JotNot has image stabilization and zoom settings, as well as sorting functions. You can add pages as well to create a multi-page bundle. And if you want to e-mail the picture, just save the image to your gallery and e-mail the photo as you normally would. However, if you upgrade to the premium app, you can go a step further and e-mail out a PDF, not just a picture. The pro software also strips away ads and lets you share or store your scan through Evernote, Dropbox, Google Docs, and more. You'll also be able to create a backup archive. That's not bad for just 99 cents. So, there you have it, a great productivity app for work or for documenting important notes. If you've got suggestions for more great apps we should cover, just e-mail the crew at tapthatapp@cnet.com. I'm Jessica Dolcourt. Until next time, keep on tapping.
