JotNot is a five dollar application, available in the iTunes store. Even though I had only had this App for one day when I recorded this video, it had already turned out to be one of the best Apps I own. JotNot turns your iPhone into a portable document scanner. I took a picture of a document, and performed optimizations right on my iPhone. That makes it nice so that sensitive information never leaves my control.
This is handy if you’re nowhere near a copier, scanner or fax machine. You can take pictures and organize things in an automated capacity. If you’re already going to have your iPhone with you, it makes sense to have a scanning application loaded onto it. You don’t just want to use your camera. JotNot lets you stabilize the camera, and then capture the image. Once you’ve done that, you need to define the edges of your document. You can’t do that with a regular camera shot!
Now you’re going to process your document. Choose your settings to save it as, the jpeg quality, the background color, and more! This could have been a receipt, or just a plain document. It’s optimized perfectly now for use as a document of any type. You can even scan in and manage multiple pages within one document! I can even export this scan via email so that I can print it out whenever I need it.
I don’t know how I lived without this App before. It’s a no-brainer – you really need this App if you have an iPhone. You’ll be surprised to find out how much you’re going to end up using it, and how much time it can save you in the long run.
