Although there are several apps for scanning physical documents, most of the applications have limited capabilities when it comes to editing the scanned documents. However, Adobe wants to change the practice as the company recently introduced a mobile scanner that turns scanned images into editable images.
The latest application Adobe Scan has similar functionalities to other popular scanning applications but the app uses Adobe’s AI programming to auto recognize text thus making it possible to edit the scanned document later.
Adobe Sensi also uses its AI to auto correct perspective errors. Adobe executive vice president and chief technology officer Abhay Parasnis said, “When you think of it, documents are the lifeblood of society, communicating data and information that spans contracts, textbooks, financial statements and everything in between. The challenge is unlocking the intelligence that lives in those documents, and extracting meaning that can be searched, analyzed and incorporated into digital workflows. Adobe Scan represents a critical step toward our broader innovation imperative for Adobe Document Cloud, and there’s much more to come.”
While the application is free to use, the application itself is cloud-based meaning documents are automatically uploaded to the included cloud storage. If you want to export the documents, you will need to purchase a $10/month PDF pack. Apart from exporting ability, subscribers will also be able to access extra features like the ability to add signatures and to merge PDFs. You can download the app from Play Store for free for casual works.
