PocketScan Mobile Scanner: If You Can Touch It, You Can Scan It

 |  |  |  |  June 21, 2014

There are apps that let you use your mobile device to scan documents and images, but if you want a dedicated mobile scanner check out PocketScan. It connects to iPads as well as Windows and OS X computers via Bluetooth and has a built-in battery. Like LG’s Smart Scan Mouse, PocketScan shows you its image processing in real time, and automatically stitches together images by sweeping its sensor over them like a brush.


PocketScan scans at up to 400dpi and has optical character recognition (OCR), which means you can extract text from scanned documents and paste them into text editing apps. Manufacturer Dacuda said that PocketScan’s software can recognize and extract charts as well.

Pledge at least $99 (USD) on Kickstarter to receive a PocketScan as a reward.
