Adobe Scan, the OCR tool for scanning documents with iPhone

This is the latest development from Adobe, which will make available to us the ability to scan physical documents using an OCR scanner (Optical Character Recognition). Compared to other similar applications in theApp Store, this one has a great point in its favor over the rest, as it is totally free, without watermarks or any subscription.

The fact that it’s free isn’t its only plus point, because its interface and use is really simple ,we just have to open the app and put it in front of the document, sheet, poster or whatever we want to scan and the app will automatically recognize them. It will start by detecting the edges of the document, take a photo, touch the perspectives, lights etc., and after all this process, it will take the text inside it.

As we can expect, the documents after being scanned will be instantly transformed into PDF files, so that we can manipulate them as we please in a very comfortable way, as files of this type are very simple and can be modified without any difficulty.

Once we test it and put this into operation, the application will tell us the following: “Quickly switch from the paper version to the digital version. The free application Adobe Scan converts your device into a powerful handheld scanner that automatically recognizes text (OCR). Turn anything you want-receipts, notes, images, documents, business cards, whiteboards-into an Adobe PDF file with content you can use again.

To carry out this function, the application uses technology from its sister Adobe Sensei , which allows us to store all multimedia content automatically in our Adobe cloud. Something to keep in mind is that we can open this cloud and move the files with any application that is from this company.

Since Apple computers and devices are designed to have a work purpose, they are the most comfortable and agile when working, this would be a step forward in this field, since we would have a function that until now only printers had inside our mobile phone.

Most of the collaborations Apple has with other big brands are still successful, and we expect no less from this application, which will open many doors to small businesses and encourage others to continue growing, all thanks to the company of the bitten apple and Adobe.
