Going back to school isn’t the only way to invest in your education. If you’re learning skills such as coding or ethical hacking, the software and gear you use can be just as important as the courses you take.
A digital scanner, like the discounted iScanner app, may be handy when working on group projects or handling instructor-provided materials like book pages and reports—especially with image-based scans.
Scan and Edit Documents With Your iPhone
iScanner is an iOS application that uses AI to turn your iPhone or iPad into a photocopier. It uses your device’s camera to capture high-quality scans of documents such as written notes, book pages, contracts, and even faxes, then saves them as PDF, JPG, or TXT files. Merge multiple scans into a single document and upload them to cloud storage services like Google Drive and Dropbox for easy sharing between collaborators.
Beyond taking a simple picture, iScanner also uses optical character recognition (OCR) to analyze scanned text—especially valuable for image-based documents; Rather than spending hours transcribing content, simply snap a picture and copy the text to your favorite format for sharing and editing. The program also reads QR codes and scans ID documents like passports, and features security tools like PIN codes for protecting confidential scans and the ability to blur sensitive info before sharing.
More Than a Photocopier
iScanner’s functionality doesn’t end there. If you’re stuck on a math problem, you can point your device’s camera at a written or typed equation and iScanner will solve it for you. Need to take inventory? Use iScanner to count similar objects automatically. The app even measures an object or an entire room’s dimensions, so you don’t have to carry a measuring tape.
Get a lifetime subscription to the iScanner App for $39.99—79% off the $199.90 MSRP—and, through Aug. 24, 50 cents of every purchase will be donated to an educational cause; keep an eye out for an email asking you to vote on a school or charity to receive the money.
