Watch this: JotNot

We first learned about the free JotNot Scanner for iPhone (and the 99-cent JotNot Scanner Pro) from a lawyer who uses the app daily to scan and send documents to colleagues. We immediately saw the app's potential for also sending along easy-to-read receipts, photos of whiteboards, and scans of other documents--whether for work or for daily life. Since the JotNot family of apps strips away photographic artifacts like shadows and other noise, it tends to focus on the text for clear comprehension. Other tools help keep scans looking straight and clean.
