Appy Monday: Genius Scan

picture of phone in pocket Nokia LumiaDo you or your students wish you had something in your pocket which can scan documents to make them electronic? Meet Genius Scan. This clever app helps you to use your phone camera to scan in documents, instantly save them as a PDF file and then you can email these to yourself for later use.

This works well for placement students who often have printed documents which they need to get signed by their mentors but would like to send or submit them electronically. The app is free to use (although there is a paid for version with extra features) and can be downloaded on both the Apple Store and Google Play.
