How to scan and convert documents into PDF

You just take a picture of the document you want to save – or you can get from your storage on the iPhone.

You create a category or select one.

You can then edit the picture or document  by rotating, cropping, or dewarping – you can also use OCR to recognise text on the page, to many languages.

You can then add more pages to this document or if you are finished you can save.

You then save it to a destination that you create and add some description.

Open a document

To open your document you go the catagory you selected or go to all if you can’t find it and you can look through your documents which are presented in a book case similar too iBooks

Tap on the thumbnail to view the document.  Now you will see the options to

  • save
  • email
  • enhance
  • edit
You can select a piece of text to edit right there on your iphone. You just click the T+ and you bring up a text board, where you can type.


You can then Open in Dropbox – Evernote – iBooks or for me the Canon iEPP to print it.

You can even email the document directly from the app and it will email as a PDF.

At anytime you can save it to your Photo library.

I must say to be honest, I just thought this was another way of saving pictures, and I wasn’t very excited with the thought of it, but once I started to use it, I was amazed by all of the features in Snap2PDF and it could really be very handy, for business and pleasure.  I especially like that you can share to dropbox or evernote so easily.  I’m impressed with this  one, try it yourself.
