Evernote's Scannable turns your iPhone or iPad into a scanner

Evernote has just released Scannable, a new app that turns your iPhone or iPad into a scanner. Like other scanning apps, Scannable can scan your physical documents to your device, and the app will even recognize different types of documents.

The app will produce the clearest scans possible. Your scanned documents are automatically cropped and enhanced for best results. Scannable can recognize documents like receipts and business cards. Details from business cards will be used to create new contacts, complete with LinkedIn data and a photo. These contacts can then be added to your device's contact list.

You're not limited to sharing with Evernote with Scannable. You can choose to send your documents to other services, as well as sending them with email, messages, or saving them as photos. You also have multiple ways to scan. In addition to your device's camera, you can also use the ScanSnap Evernote Edition scanner, which you can control through Scannable via Wi-Fi.

Scannable is a universal app, rolling out now on the App Store.
