Turn your Windows Phone device into a mobile scanner with CamScanner

Mentioned back at the Nokia World 2013 (Abu Dhabi), CamScanner for Windows Phone 8 makes its debut to the App Store. CamScanner transforms your phone into a mobile scanner allowing you to make soft copies of your documents the easy way.

Mobile Scanner for Windows Phone

To scan your document, launch CamScanner app and sign in to your account (register for a new account if you don’t have one already). Tap the camera button and take a photograph of the document you want to scan. It needn’t be well aligned as the CamScanner offers a unique feature that auto detects and crops the scanned image.

The cropped image undergoes series of processes and enhancements to make it a truly scanned copy. CamScanner for Windows Phone 8 offers 5 new modes – they are original, lighten, magic color, B&W and greyscale to enhance your document the way you want.

It also offers an ability to quickly convert the image into a PDF file.  After scanning you can search for text within the document, add/edit name, tag and notes to the document image. Pages can be copied, moved or even merged together to make a single PDF document.

The scanned documents are saved to the CamScanner account, you can upload, download and manage your documents anytime from camscanner.net. CamScanner is a cross-platform app available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone that can synchronise documents between various phones and tablets. There’s a web app available at camscanner.net which can let you manage the documents from the desktop as well.

CamScanner offers a couple of ways to share your documents which also includes SkyDrive sharing. You can email the JPG of scanned document or send a link of it or even save it to the camera roll.

CamScanner is compatible only with Windows Phone 8 devices and is available for FREE of cost at Windows Phone Store.

    VARAD CHOUDHARI WROTE: CamScanner is compatible only with Windows Phone 8 devices…

    MY RESPONSE: No, it’s not. It’s been an Android product, seemingly forever.

    SEE | http://bit.ly/1hrDFUE

    And available on the iPhone, too! | http://bit.ly/1hrE09P

    Why, then, are you lying to your readers? Are you trying, in your blind Microsoft allegiance and loyalty, to make it look like the Windows phone 8 can do something that other phones can’t? Are you *THAT* much of a Microsoft brown-nose?

    You get your own opinions about things, but you don’t get your own facts.

    Stop misleading people. Readers, here, deserve better. Shame on you.

    Relax Gregg. What he meant was that the app will not work on the older WP7 devices. Don’t get your woolies knotted over a non sequitur.

    I rather feel that your morbid hatred of Microsoft makes you so blind that you cannot see that the author clearly wrote…..

    “CamScanner is a cross-platform app available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone that can synchronise documents between various phones and tablets. There’s a web app available at camscanner.net which can let you manage the documents from the desktop as well.”

    I guess the shame is on you now!

    What I meant to say was that the app will only work on Windows Phone 8 devices and not Windows Phone 7.8 or older. About other platforms? I’ve clearly mentioned its availability on iOS and Android as well.

    OK, so I may have made a mistake, but what’s it with you, that you need to be so harsh! Did you not mistakes when you were young? Or have you forgotten already!

    HOTMAIL ALIAS WROTE: Relax Gregg. What he meant was…

    MY RESPONSE: And that’s all the further I needed to read. It matters not what he meant. What matters is what he wrote. Period. If he meant something different than what he wrote, then he should have written what he meant. It couldn’t be more simple.

    Moreover, I do not have a morbid hatred of Microsoft, as my body of postings around the Internet will facially attest. What I despise is those Microsoft disciples who are so brainwashed by it that they’re willing to join it in its lies and misdirections such as I’ve documented many, many times in my writings.

    I have pushing 40 years as an IT professional — beginning, I’ll wager, since before you were even born, sonny (or, if not, then when you were still pooping your diapers) — working predominantly with Microsoft products. I’ve installed more of their products into businesses, and trained more people how to use them, than I dare say you’ve ever even been in the same room with. No one who has a morbid hatred for Microsoft would ever do that… not, at least, unless s/he were a masochist, which I’m not; and I’ve FORGOTTEN more about such things than I’ll wager you’ll ever know.

    Finally, I stand by every single word of my initial posting. Shame, indeed.

    Your responses do not sound like it came from someone with 40 years of experience! I thought with age, came maturity – but does not look like in your case!

  • Caleb

    Don’t worry, mistakes happen.

    I stand by my previous post too, because the shame is on you for getting all worked up without reading the complete article. I will advise you to read the article again, specially the 5th paragraph from top (3rd from the end) and then apologise to the author and everyone on this thread. You’re also advised to stop advertising your shallowness anymore.

    Its not even a mistake. You wrote very clearly that this is a cross platform app available on Android, iOS and also on the web. Its just that the elderly gentleman failed to read it. Moreover, I understood very easily that you meant that the app will not work with WP7 devices. And don’t have 40 years experience as an IT professional. Heck, I don’t have even 1 month experience in IT. But I can read and understand English. :)

    You have your opinion, I have mine. Let the record, here, be what it is.

    The problem is that you’re entirely Windows-centric. That’s just as bad as being Apple-centric. Think more broadly, else you mislead. And once you deign to write for a website like this, you must be more careful. Go to journalism school and you’ll understand.
