There’s nothing worse than forgetting an idea, or losing an important piece of paper. The one thing we never lose, and usually don’t forget is our phone - so now with the Dropbox Scanner App, you can save, organize, and share important documents right from your phone. Dropbox Scan is a standalone app that lets you quickly transform all your physical documents into high-quality PDFs. It’s everything you love about doc scanner in the Dropbox app—but even faster and easier to use. in English-speaking markets, and you can sign into Dropbox with your corp email or a Basic, Plus, or Professional account. Whatever the situation, whether it’s a piece of paper, a receipt or even a whiteboard of notes, you can conveniently save high quality scans to Dropbox.
Why would you even considder pandering to IOS when it only has a 27% of the market and Android has 71%? The only reasion I can thik of is some affilliation to this minority opperating system.
The ones I would be excited about would be photos, sketches, whiteboard, handouts, etc if it means that you can search thru it via search/ OCR/ whatever term you want to use.
To say that you want to digitalize things, to never lose a big idea, never be rushed about losing your meeting notes only works so far with scanned notes. If all it does is convert it to png/ pdf/ etc then it only helps to a certain point. Basically becomes a dumping ground since the more info you have the harder it is to find if you are limited to folders only without tags or the ability to add text notes
Searching within the images makes this very useful. Many times I use notes in class etc but once again it is only helpful to a given point if the OCR cannot search the handwritten text
It would also be helpful if there was an ability to convert images already in DB to searchable images vs finding the paper doc again (if you still have it) & scanning it.
