Did you ever need a digital copy of some paper document to send out, but there is no flatbed scanner nearby? Taking a picture from iPad / iPhone is intuitive, but the picture would be perspective distorted, with low-light environment or even has some shadows covered texts. The image quality will not be comparable with any decent flatbed scanner.
With FasterScan, scanning and sending a document as high-resolution PDF or JPEG is a matter of seconds. In addition, you can draw lines or annotate on the scanned image before saving it as a PDF document. The image quality is very close to what you can get from a flatbed scanner.
Besides, the fax sending function is convenient especially when you are out of office or have no fax machine at all.
No wonder iPad could be used as a portable scanner
that produces as sharp images as a flatbed scanner does.
