Scannable to the rescue!

If you follow my website and my YouTube channel you probably know that an important part of my productivity system is working paperless. That’s why I have one or more mobile devices available at all times. These are mostly my iPhone and my iPad.

Because I still receive a small amount of stuff on paper, I need to digitize those items as soon as possible. These days I almost always scan these items with my iPhone. I use Evernote’s Scannable App. In this week’s video, I show you why and how I use it.

All kinds of Sources

This is one of those apps that look simple and are very easy to use, while behind the scenes it is pure magic.

Scannable instantly recognizes business cards, receipts, and any other paper sources, even Whiteboards. It automatically crops and enhances your scans, and it also adjusts the orientation if necessary. As a result, you get High-Quality Scans that you can save or share.

When Scannable recognizes a business card, it will automatically pull the contact data from the card and hand you the possibility to save that information as a new contact. If you have LinkedIn connected to Scannable, it will even pull in LinkedIn information automatically. Furthermore, you have the opportunity to send that contact your digital business card. That makes it very easy to exchange contact information.

Excellent integration with Evernote

Scannable can save your scanned documents as PDF’s or as Images. It will automatically suggest the most likely format, but you can manually change that. You can also Crop and Rotate manually. When you’re pleased with your scan, you can save it to Evernote or send it through email or by using one of Apple’s share options.

I’ve used several scanning apps, but Scannable is my goto app for scanning ever since it was released. It’s fast, the scans are high-quality, and it has excellent integration with Evernote. I can highly recommend Scannable. It’s available only on iOS, and you can get it on the App Store for Free! You can find more information on this web page: https://evernote.com/products/scannable/

Thanks for watching and see you on the next one!
