Dropbox for iOS incorporates Scan Function

Dropbox for iOS incorporates Scan FunctionDropbox the cloud-based service has received an update to its iOS app recently. The update allows the app to scan and store multiple pages of a document hard copies in PDF formats. Though it is not a very captivating breakthrough, but the document getting stored in the cloud makes more sense.

In order to scan a document, users need to tap the ‘+’ button prominently visible in the app which in turn will provide you with three options Scan Document, Upload Photos & Create or Upload Files. By choosing the scan document option and access to the camera provided a box will appear on the screen to frame the document. Now a tap on the camera button will scan the document, to further add pages to the scan the small ‘+’ button on the bottom-left corner of the screen need tap. To complete the process users need to tap on next and successively choose a destination for the file to save it in the cloud-based storage of Dropbox. This is a seamless process. And the fact that file is saved in the cloud directly saves time and effort.

Though there are other apps that can perform a similar and additional function such as scannable, the Dropbox app is considered when you are a dedicated user or business subscriber and do not want to clutter up your app drawer (in the case of iOS the home screen).
