Odessa, Ukraine – October 12, 2009 – Today Readdle announces the release of Scanner Pro, an
iPhone application that transforms the device into portable scanner. It lets iPhone owners scan multi
page documents into PDF files, send them by email, access over Wi-Fi and even upload to MobileMe
iDisk or any other WebDAV enabled server. Scanner Pro is available exclusively on the Apple App Store
at USD $6.99.

Scanner Pro is designed to scan multi page documents and transform them into industry standard PDF
files. It allows people to set password on PDF document to protect data with 40-bit RC4 level encryption.
This feature is very important for those who use iPhones for work since many business documents
contain sensible information that should be protected from unauthorized access after scanning.

To overcome weaknesses of the iPhone camera, Scanner Pro uses special algorithms to enhance
image quality. Additionally, users can manually adjust brightness and contrast to make text look even
better. Also, since major documents are text based, Scanner Pro can automatically convert all
documents into grayscale thus greatly reducing size of the resulting document.

Scanner Pro supports a number of ways to share PDF documents after scanning. The file can be
uploaded to MobileMe iDisk, Box.Net, Humyo and any other WebDAV enabled file storage; sent by
email using current iPhone Mail account and even transferred to Mac or PC computer over Wi-Fi.
“Situations when there is printed document that should be send by email and there is no scanner nearby
is familiar to many business people including myself,” – explains Alexander Tyagulsky, Readdle CMO.
“Scanner Pro is made to save the day when this happens to you.”

Pricing and Availability:
Scanner Pro is available exclusively on the Apple App Store at USD $6.99:

  1. As a music teacher, I will find this a very valuable app. I use a plethora of tech stuff in my classroom (laptop, projector, Office 2007, etc) and I create my own worksheets and scan them to save and show on my laptop. This method indubitably saves on using paper to make photocopies (I think I’ve made around 100 copies last school year). The problem was that my scanner was at home and I had to wait to make scanned copies of my worksheets. With this app, I can instantly scan my worksheets at work, send them to myself via email and have it ready to view for my classes. Yes, I could’ve used JotNot to do this but this app has been specifically made to make exceptional scans of documents. As soon as I get it, I’ll leave comments of its use.

  2. This is a great app! I am a teacher too (like Rob) and there are many times that I wish I had an ELMO in my classroom but they’re too expensive. This app allows you to quickly snap a picture of something, email it to yourself, and then you can pull it up on your tv or monitor in the classroom. Pretty handy.

  3. I love all you techy teachers!
