The American multinational computer software company Adobe launched a new scanning app known as Adobe Scan. The app is free to download and use on both platforms. The app lets users to scan anything from receipts, invoices, documents, etc and store them as PDF. Adobe Scan also comes loaded with text recognition which allows the users to edit their scanned documents.
You might be wondering that there are already many apps available that can do the same thing as Adobe Scan. The answer is Yes, but Adobe Scan comes with features like sharpen the scanned documents and touch up scanned documents or any photos from your gallery. One of the key features of Adobe Scan is the text recognition. This feature allows users to edit any of the scanned documents. This works just like the one from Microsoft, the Microsoft Lens. The text recognition feature can come in handy for working professionals and students.
That’s not it, One more feature which comes with Adobe Scan is the Adobe Document Cloud Integration. This feature allows users to save their scanned documents to the Document Cloud and access them from anywhere at anytime. The users can also scan multiple page documents and store them as a single page PDF. They can also review, reorder, crop and rotate the scanned documents according to their wish.
Bryan Lamkin, the executive vice president and general manager of Adobe quoted that ” Adobe can represents a radical re-imagination of how to capture your most important document content”.
“The free Adobe Scan app turns your device into a powerful portable scanner that recognises text automatically (OCR). Turn anything – receipts, notes, documents, pictures, business cards, whiteboards – into an Adobe PDF with content you can reuse,” the company says in the app description on Google Play.
