Dropbox – free
If you press the plus sign, a pop up menu will give you the choices on the right including “scan.”
Press “scan” and the camera will come up and auto-recognition will try to find document edges. Hit the camera trigger and on the next screen you will see the scan and an icon with a “+” sign to add an additional page.
On the same screen, you will see an adjustment button at the bottom where you can set the scan to b/w or original color as well as change the contrast.
If you do not have another page, hit next to store your document in dropbox using a jpg or png format.
After the document is saved, you can email or share the link.
Auto-Upload of photos.
Dropbox is backing off of this option for non-paid users because you take too many photos and it’s filling up the available 2 gigs of space. Keep them on your computer.
Create MS Office document
In the first “+” pop up menu in dropbox, there is a new “Create or Upload File” selection. If you select this choice, you can create a MS document, spreadsheet or powerpoint file . The catch is you must have those MS office apps installed on your phone. If you have the space, add them in. I had to take them off because they are HUGE, around 800mb each.
