“Put away the desktop scanner” Says AppAdvice


Are the days of the trusty old desktop scanner numbered? Here’s what AppAdvice has to say:

“Almost everyone uses their mobile devices or digital cameras for snapping photos nowadays. But, what about all of those pictures you have in that shoe box, physical album, or even the drawer? Baby pictures, wedding photos, or family vacation shots from when you were a child are precious. With Pic Scanner you can quickly scan and then edit, save, and share them just as easily as the photos you take now.”

AppAdvice is a respected resource on the Web for people looking to discover iOS apps. They filter and vet the 1,500,000+ apps in the App Store to bring their readers up to date on news regarding apps, as well as providing detailed app reviews.

Pic Scanner offers portability, speed and convenience, and you can instantly post those legacy photographs on Facebook, Instagram, Google+ or the many other sharing and archiving options bundled within the app. You can even digitize directly from picture albums – no need to go through the hassle of taking out fragile pics, and putting them back in afterwards. A little better than the old fashioned “scan on desktop scanner and crop on computer” method!

To be fair, a desktop scanner can give you very high quality (600-1200 PPI) scans, TIF files and more. But do you really need those? Do you need to make six-by-four foot prints? Do you really want to store a thousand 30 MB photos on your computer? Can you always have your desktop scanner at hand whenever you want to scan photos? If not, go with the scanner you always have on you – in your pocket (iPhone) or the palm of your hand (iPad). And Pic Scanner app. You’ll be pleasantly surprised.
