TurboScan: quickly scan multipage documents into high-quality PDFs by Pixoft
DescriptionTurboScan turns your iPhone into a multipage scanner for documents, receipts, notes, whiteboards, and other text. With TurboScan, you can quickly scan your documents and store or email them as multipage PDF or JPEG files.
#1 business app in the United States and 33 other countries for 5 consecutive months recently!
"Its like carrying a copy machine in your pocket" (Mac | Life, April 2010)
"Unbelievably sharp. The best app Ive tried... The scan accuracy of SureScan mode is brilliant" (AppBank review, April 2010)
TurboScan uses advanced fast algorithms to auto-detect document edges, straighten the documents (correct perspective), eliminate shadows and set a perfect contrast.
TurboScan boasts a powerful yet easy to use interface. Get instant one-tap brightness, rotation and color controls all on one screen!
TurboScan also offers SureScan, our proprietary scanning mode for sharper scans (especially useful in low-light conditions.) SureScan requires taking three pictures of the same document with the iPhone camera.
TurboScan's handy "Email to myself" feature lets you send documents to a predefined address, or even upload them to online storage sites like Evernote, with a single tap.
All processing happens on your iPhone, and the confidentiality of your data is never compromised (no Internet connection needed.)

TIPS ON SCANNING
Note that if your iPhone model is 3G or earlier, you must hold it at least 10 inches away from the document to avoid out-of-focus scans.
Make sure your document is flat and well lit.

Customer ReviewsAm I Missing Something??? (2 stars)
There is no Optical Character Recognition and no auto-alignment of the document; a true 5 Star App should have both. It would not take more than a weekend to add the auto-alignment; the OCR could solve both problems. The search feature only works because you manually define it; aligning the file is also manual and you have to do each side separately (i.e. no way to lock opposite sides together is another flaw). This App is a minor upgrade
Does not perform OCR (1 star)
Be aware that this app does not perform Optical Character Recognition on text, meaning the PDFs created with this app are unsearchable, large in file size and tremendously less useful. OS X provides native PDF conversion through the print dialogue.
I did not read the hole thing! : ( (5 stars)
I have an iPod touch 4th gen and it works ok. But yea I will defenetly need to get an iPhone 4s to experience this app to its full potential.
