How To Scan Document Using Your Mobile Phone
|How To Scan Document Using Your Mobile Phone by blessingarizona: 6:14 am On August 23, 2018|
A good scanner is still great to have if you frequently need to scan a large handful of documents, but using your phone also works great if you only have a couple documents to scan every now and then. #Android and iOS is recommended when you need to scan a document using a mobile phone.
If you’re using an Android device, the best way to scan documents is through the Google Drive app, which comes pre-installed on every Android device.
You can scan documents directly into Google Drive by tapping the “+” button in the lower-right corner of the home screen >> Tap Scan>> Take a photo of the document you’d like to scan>> Adjust scan area: Tap Crop>> Take photo again: Tap Re-scan current page>> Scan another page: Tap Add>> To save the finished document, tap Done.
You can also make minor adjustments to your scans as you go. For instance, tapping on the painter’s palette in the top-right corner will allow you to change the scan’s color selection and cater it towards a specific kind of document. By default, the scanner will automatically pick the one it thinks is best.
Lastly, the three dots in the upper-right corner will let you delete, rename, and rotate the scan if need be.
Uploaded scans are added to Google Drive as PDFs and the names are written with the word “Scanned”, followed by the date and time. You can move, rename, or delete any of your scanned documents by clicking the three dots next to the file’s name.
You can also share your scanned documents from this menu by tapping on “Share Link”. This will share a link to the document on Google Drive, while “Send a Copy” will allow you to share the actual file over email, send it to Dropbox, and more.
To set up a shortcut to scan documents:
Open your Android phone or tablet’s widgets>> Find the “Drive scan” widget>> Touch and hold the widget>> Drag it onto your Home screen. You may be asked to select an account>> Choose the folder you’ll save documents inside. If you want to create a folder, tap New Folder >> Tap Select. You’ll see the folder name in the widget.
