It is so easy to use that it has options to transfer the documents directly to any storage device or email it or post it on social networking websites.

Pros

Lectures Scanner makes your smart phone, your mobile scanner. As a pdf creation tool, it also provides additional legibility to documents that are blurry and of poor quality. As an added bonus, this tool can also create watermarked official documents. Just in case you want to combine two documents, you can use the merge provision and save it as a single document.

Cons

Although, the app itself proclaims novelty, sometimes, it takes a long time to click the pictures since the camera filters out pure image files. Due to this, at times, the app shuts down abruptly. Despite this inconvenience of slow response time, this app has created a revolution in application software and this seems to be only the beginning.

Summary

The developers are so true to their jobs and this can be seen in the physical look of the app. As soon as you click on the icon, the start-up screen consists of two options – Camera and New Document. The interface is designed in such a way that it gives an executive feel, with absolutely no space for flowery functions. This app is highly useful for professional people in the education and media domains. Want to experience the beginning of the futuristic era? Here try Lectures Scanner!
