Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
Hamrick Software, the developer of VueScan, the world's most widely used scanning software, has released VueScan Mobile version 1.2 for Android – adding the ability to use the camera as a scanner.
VueScan Mobile for Android was first released just two months ago in January 2013 - allowing customers to seamlessly scan documents and photos straight to an Android device from any HP, Canon, Epson or Brother WiFi printer/scanner.
The new camera scanning function allows anyone with a phone with a camera to easily take photos and store them in a JPEG or PDF format. VueScan Mobile automatically detects and crops the document in the photo, and allows it to be saved, e-mailed or saved to the clipboard.
In addition to sending via e-mail and saving to the Photos App, VueScan Mobile also allows customers to save scanned images to their favorite Android apps that can open PDF or JPEG files such as Dropbox, GoodReader and Evernote.
VueScan Mobile uses the Wi-Fi connection on the Android device to find scanners connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If the scanner has a document feeder, VueScan first checks to see if there is a document in the feeder, otherwise it scans from the flatbed.
“It has been essential to us to support Android – and our focus has been to release a product that is easy to use for all audiences” said David Hamrick, Partner at Hamrick Software. “We wanted to make sure that the camera scanning is of the highest quality – and we are very satisfied with the functionality we have added."
The VueScan Mobile App makes scanning extremely convenient. Simply press the green Scan button and, in a few seconds, the document will appear on your Android device. Ed Hamrick, developer of VueScan, said: “We recognised the demand for anyone to be out of the home or work place and need a reliable and easy way to scan anything. This totally opens up the world of scanning. Anyone who can take a photo with their camera can now email it directly, or store it for later. This makes VueScan Mobile even more of a "Scanner in your Pocket."
VueScan Mobile is available in two versions. The free version which scans with all supported scanners at 300dpi and can export JPEG images – this is available for Android, iPhone, iPad or Kindle Fire from Canon, HP, Brother and Epson WiFi MFPs.
The full version at $4.99 supports document feeders, duplex, document management and multi-page PDF. The VueScan Mobile Free App and the full version for Android devices is available in Google Play Store and the Amazon Appstore.
