Saving PDF documents with the CamScanner app

Scanning documents using the mobile phone as a scanner is the job of CamScanner, one of the leading applications of the genre for Android and iPhone (iOS). The app takes the camera from your smartphone to identify documents and convert them to PDF without help from the PC. Once saved, documents can be shared in a variety of ways, including email, WhatsApp, Google Drive, and more. The software is free to download and does not require login to release the main functions.

Step 2. If the capture is done on time, look at the document with the camera of the phone, preferably in a well-lit location. Moving forward, CamScanner opens an editor that allows you to crop the edges by adjusting the corners to prevent unnecessary things from appearing on the scan.
