Scanner Pro and Mailbox Apps

imagesScanner Pro

“Scanner Pro is perhaps the best app for quickly scanning and saving a digital version of a paper document.” – New York Times.

“Scanner Pro is an excellent app for those who’d like to digitize and organize their paper worlds.” – Marc Saltzman, USA Today

Featured by Apple as the first App of the Week in 2014, according to the developer: “Scanner Pro transforms your iPhone and iPad into portable scanners. It allows you to scan receipts, whiteboards, paper notes, or any multipage document. Scanned documents can be emailed and printed, uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote, or simply saved on the iPhone/iPad. The application incorporates special algorithms that remove shadows, make scans sharper, correct perspective and make them as readable as possible.”

Currently priced at $2.99 for a limited time, Scanner Pro is typically priced at $6.99.

Mailbox

“The best email management app you’ll ever use.” – Ryan Lawler, TechCrunch

According to the developer, Mailbox is currently available for “Gmail, iCloud and Yahoo accounts with other email platforms coming soon. Mailbox is a completely redesigned inbox that makes email light, fast, and mobile-friendly. Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they’ll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what’s important now. Mailbox checks your email from the cloud, then delivers it to your phone securely. You can even get push notifications for new messages. Mailbox makes getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.”

Using the freemium business model, expect more feature rich experiences via in-app purchases over time. In March of 2013, Dropbox acquired Mailbox.
