[IMGCAP(1)]Welcome to our newest feature, App of the Week, where we highlight some of the top mobile business  apps used by accounting professionals and technology consultants alike; this week it is Scanner Pro by Readdle.

Scanner Pro, which as of press time was on Version 4.4, essentially allows users to turn their mobile device -- mainly iPhones and iPads for now -- into a scanner. The main uses, we've found, are for scanning receipts, whiteboards, paper notes, or any multi-page document.

Scanned documents can be emailed and printed, uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote, or saved on the iPhone/iPad.

The application also has the abilitty to make images sharper and more readable so you can convert paper notes and sketches into digital copies or sign document with a pen and scan it for

Scanner Pro scans any type of document and all scans are saved as a PDF. Users can also scan then send a document to a nearby printer. For more information or a download for $6.99 visit the App Store or the Readdle site.
