Adobe Scan turns physical documents into editable PDF files

Adobe Scan, a free app delivers a modern document experience, turning mobile devices into an intelligent scanning and text-recognition tool, while Adobe Sign has added ease of use and mobility improvements. Sensai is used for things like boundary detection, auto-crop and capture, perspective correction, and auto-clean to remove shadows, for example. Automatically capture a shopping receipt, paper document, business card or whiteboard, or choose an image from your camera roll and Adobe Scan will do the rest. "Adobe Scan, powered by Adobe Sensei's intelligent services, represents a critical step toward our broader innovation imperative for Adobe Document Cloud", said Adobe.

The finished PDF is stored in Adobe Document Cloud, and Scan works with free as well as paid Document Cloud accounts, although subscribers do get additional capabilities including editing, organising and signing.

What do you think about Adobe's new app? It also works with photographs of whiteboards (eg, in meetings) and presentation slides (eg, at conferences).

0In a mobile-first world, it doesn't make much sense that we still rely on bulky scanning machines to scan documents. The company has today announced a new app - Adobe Scan.

Using an Adobe app to snap, store and share those scans? All the documents are automatically saved on the Adobe Document Cloud. Cross-device signature capturing, custom templates, document stamping, and workflow customization are all being added. Users can capture a handwritten signature electronically, even when their computer is not touch-enabled, by sending a text message to a mobile device and signing it with your finger or a stylus, then finishing the job back on the desktop with one tap required to add it to a document.

Emails sent to request and confirm signatures are now fully customisable to reflect the corporate or brand style. Other apps may charge more, but they're also self-contained. That'll immediately upload your scan to Document Cloud. Global businesses like Deloitte, Diners Club, MasterCard, Perkins Cole, The Royal Bank of Scotland and Verizon are using Adobe Document Cloud and Adobe Sign to digitize customer experiences.
