One of our favorite – and expensive – apps for iOS has gone free for a limited time (a $7 value). We’ve got all the details and download link right after the break!
Readdle, the company behind a number of professional apps on the iOS App Store, has made its Scanner Pro app free for a week. The app is generally thought of the de-facto choice for business professionals who need to scan documents on the go using the built-in camera of the iOS device. The functionality within Scanner Pro seamlessly turns the installed device into a professional scanning tool, with its abilities and user-experience recognized by Apple who has made it their app of the week.
It’s not unusual for apps across multiple genres to go free or get a significant price adjustment for the holidays. With that said, Readdle seems extremely keen to get users on board with Scanner Pro by offering a 100% limited time discount, taking the app down from $6.99 to free for a period of seven days.
Anyone looking for an easy, mobile and effective scanning solution will immediately feel at home with this option. All scans made with the app, regardless of whether it is a solitary receipt or a multiple page report, are easily read by the app and rendered quickly into a high quality PDF document.
Scanner Pro also has a lot of smarts when it comes to detecting and processing images within a given document. Automatic edge detection plays an important role in ensuring the app smartly distinguishes between text and imagery, with the same intelligent logic being applied to border detection on the supplied document. The resulting PDF can also be adapted, with users being afforded the ability to interact with and rearrange pages within the PDF.
As you might expect, any saved scan can also be emailed directly from the app and can be immediately sent to third-party services like Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive or any other provided cloud storage service.
Users intending to download and use the app on multiple devices will be pleasantly surprised by the seamless iCloud syncing option. Scans can be created on an iPhone and immediately synced across to an iPad tablet using the same iCloud account. It’s not often that premium popular apps like this get a total price reduction so make sure to grab it now while it’s free.
