Its been a long, long time coming, but Smile Softwares PDFpen Scan+, arguably one of the best scanner applications for iOS, has received an update adding touch-free scanning on the iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.
As such, users of the universal $6.99 application can now have the app automatically capture a document when their iOS device is pointed at a slip of paper. Much like rival apps, and most notably Scanbot, PDFpen Scan+ now snaps shots as soon as your chosen document is in focus and its edges are detectable. Weve tested this new feature, and in our experience it works great.
Fortunately, this has all changed as of PDFpen Scan+ version 2.0, which hit the App Store a couple of days ago. Besides making the above change, Smile Softwares application now also provides users with in-camera options for the appearance of your document including its color and page size configurations. All of this means PDFpen Scan+ is more efficient than ever before.
To recap, heres a complete list of new features:
Touch-free scanning on your iPhone or iPad camera
Detects page edges automatically when camera is focused and steady
Camera automatically crops scan
In-camera setting for color / grayscale / black and white
In-camera setting for page size: from legal, to business card, and receipts
