DocuWare Releases PaperScan for WhatsApp
Wednesday, June 29, 2016
WhatsApp has become a worldwide communication staple, especially for students. In combination with DocuWare's PaperScan, they can comfortably scan homework or any document with a smartphone and share it via WhatsApp. Since the scan app automatically adjusts and trims the documents, the result is significantly better than with a regular photo.
At the end of 2013, DocuWare released PaperScan, a free scan app that turns ordinary Apple and Android smartphones into mobile document scanners. In its new version, 2.1.1, the app works seamlessly with WhatsApp.
Users can now use PaperScan to quickly scan homework, reports or excerpts from books and newspapers with their smartphones and share them with friends via WhatsApp.
Here is how it works: Once a user holds his (or her) smartphone over a page, PaperScan will automatically detect the page and trim it to fit before scanning. The scan can then be easily uploaded to WhatsApp and sent to a single recipient or a group. Multiple pages may also be sent as a single document, since WhatsApp supports PDF as a file format. To send a chapter from a book or a newspaper article, the user drags a rectangle over the section in PaperScan before sharing it via WhatsApp. Thanks to several available printer apps, you can also print all of this in high quality.
DocuWare PaperScan for all iPhones (iPhone 5 and above) and Samsung models (Galaxy starting with S4), as well as similar devices, is available to download for free from the AppStore or PlayStore.
