siliconreview Adobe introduces its ‘Scan App’ with text recognition for Android & iOS

The renowned American multinational computer software company ‘Adobe’ recently created a buzz with the launch of its all new document scanning app called Adobe Scan. Wondering why to decide on for Adobe's app over the other existing scanning apps available on Google Play store or Apple's App Store, then here is the reason, as the new scanning app comes with Adobe Document Cloud integration. Also the app is free to download and use all that a user need is an Adobe ID to get access to its features. The benefit of the app can be availed by Android and iOS users.

The Adobe Scan almost works like every other scanning app; it also offers its users an option to sharpen the scanned content and touch up scans or photos from camera roll. The users then can just simply scan multiple-page documents and then put aside the scans as PDF files with the help of Adobe Scan app. Regarded as one of  the key features accessible by the Adobe Scan is text recognition, it is just like the one offered by Microsoft Lens, which lets the users to scan images into editable documents and can come in handy for working professionals as well as students.

"The free Adobe Scan app turns your device into a powerful portable scanner that recognises text automatically (OCR). Turn anything - receipts, notes, documents, pictures, business cards, whiteboards - into an Adobe PDF with content you can reuse," the company says in the app description on Google Play.

"Adobe Scan represents a radical re-imagination of how to capture your most important document content," Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe, was quoted as saying in the company's release.

"Adobe invented PDF creation for PCs, and with Adobe Scan we're doing the same for a mobile-first world. As part of Adobe Document Cloud, new apps like Adobe Scan integrate with services in Adobe Sign and Acrobat DC, offering a modern document experience with unprecedented value to our customers," Lamkin said.
