Neat Mobile Released - Access and Add to Your Scanned Documents Anywhere

Posted by Jeff Scott on July 10th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: :: Read Review »

Back in January at Macworld Expo we saw the first demo of Neat Cloud and Neat Mobile. Neat have been around for years providing hardware and software that allows archiving and then searching of scanned documents of various kinds. They produce two different scanners and desktop software to help you get documents into your database. The Neat Cloud update brings that database into the cloud and allows scanning and searching from the iPhone and iPad.

Not only can you use your iPhone and iPad to search your Neat data in the cloud while on the go, you can also use these devices to get items into the system. Utilizing the camera on the iPhone is a great way to get business cards, receipts, and other items onto your Neat Cloud while away from home. Take a look at the video from Neat below for more on the Neat system.

We got a few days to try out Neat Cloud, Neat Mobile, and one of the Neat Desk scanners. Here are some initial thoughts.

The Neat scanner is easy to set up. Just install the software and then plug in the power and the USB cable. Throw in a bunch go papers into one of the three custom guides in the scanner -- one for documents, one for receipts, and one for business cards -- and away you go. The scanning happens just about as fast as you can throw documents at it. Once documents are in they will be recognized and OCR'ed to get the data from them. From there they reside in your inbox in Neat for you to give them a check and file them in a folder that works for you.

You can also use the Neat mobile app to scan documents into your Neat database. In that case the document is sent to the cloud to be recognized and OCR applied. It is then send back down to your mobile device and to your Neat desktop inbox for sorting.

While the Neat Scanner works well if you have stacks of documents to scan in, in quick testing we found the iPhone camera to be produce quicker and higher resolution scans of most one and two page items. Both seem to have their place -- the scanner for stacks of documents and the camera for single items and when you are on the go.

Both the scanner and your iPhone captures will not only keep the original images of your document, business cards, receipts, etc., the system will also apply Optical Character Recognition (OCR) on them. The OCR will, if the document type is set right, also grab relevent data from your scans. For example the purchase total and credit card used for a receipt or contact details from a business card. You can then use that data to updated your contacts or use the receipt data at tax time.

All visible text in the document is converted to text for the database too. Because of this you will also be able to search not only metadata about the documents scanned, but also the full content as well. Great for instances where you are looking for documents about a particular subject, but can't remember more.

In quick testing of the OCR capabilities, everything seemed to work well with just a few recognition mistakes. In most cases the mistake was minor -- but some of the more difficult business cards I threw at it did cause it to return oddly converted text. Unfortunately no OCR system is complete scan and forget, they all need to be fine tuned.

Neat Cloud comes at an additional cost over the Neat scanner and software. A personal account costs $5.99/month but you'll need the Home & Office account at $14.99/month to use the mobile app. The Home & Office account does have the additional bonus of supporting two users, great for a household. In addition there is a higher level, the Business account that allows access by up to 5 users for $24.99/month.

Neat Mobile and Neat Cloud are available immediately. The link to the mobile app is below. To sign up for a Neat Cloud account, head to the Neat Cloud site.

Redesigned Scanner Pro Brings New Interface and iCloud Integration To The iPhone, iPad

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on July 6th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: BEST IN CLASS :: Read Review »

Scanner Pro 4, released in April of this year by developer Readdle, just got an update to version 4.1. Scanner Pro 4 brought a newly re-designed interface to the iPhone, as the app became a Universal binary, able to be used on any iOS device.

Today, Readdle touts iCloud integration as the next big feature to hit its document scanning app. iCloud auto sync allows any document that is scanned via the iPhone or iPad to be available on any other iCloud enabled device, all automatically and such. No more emailing documents from one device to the next, beaming, or copying to Dropbox, though those options and more are still supported.

Scanner Pro 4.1 also includes an updated iPhone interface, making it look and work more like the recently redesigned iPad UI.

Since launching in 2009, Readdle boasts that Scanner Pro has over 350 000 users using Scanner Pro regularly to scan documents, receipts and whiteboards, so you know it's a fairly good app. If those numbers don't sway you, our own reviewer called this one a best in class scanner, awarding it four stars in his review.

Scanner Pro Optimizes Its iPad Experience

Posted by Kevin Stout on April 18th, 2012

A little over two years ago, Jason Fanguy wrote up a review of Scanner Pro, a portable scanner app by Readdle (also known for other popular file management and productivity apps like Printer Pro and ReaddleDocs).

Many updates ago, when Scanner Pro was on version 1.2.5, Jason described the app as “best in class,” the interface as “refreshingly clean,” and was amazed by the clarity of the text-heavy documents he scanned. Now, many updates later, Readdle has released the 4.0 version of powerful Scanner Pro. This update focused on making Scanner Pro the best scanner app for the iPad.

Since the new iPad boasts such a powerful camera, it’s become the ideal device for an app like Scanner Pro. It’s now a universal app. But the iPad version isn’t just a scaled up version with better graphics. The app has been completely redesigned with the iPad in mind. Other important new features include faster image processing, folders to organize scans, and a search by name or date option.

Three major updates later, Scanner Pro is the same price ($6.99) as it was when Jason reviewed it two years ago.

Connect by Quickoffice comes in three tiers of service. Basic lets users view documents, access cloud files, have five shared folders, sync two devices, and sync up to 5,000 files for free. Premium adds document editing, an aggregated search, unlimited shared folders, 4 device synchronization, remote access, and 125,000 synced files, for $44.99 per year, with a $19.99 per year sale price at launch.
