Hi I need an app please to scan in white board diagrams, documents, notes etc.

In a perfect world I'd love to be able to take a scan/picture, rename the file to what i want and then app upload it to dropbox in a specific folder.

Any apps which do this please?

I use Evernote for this. It doesn't go to Dropbox, but it goes to Evernote on my iPad, iPhone, Mac and PC automatically.

If I needed it in Dropbox for some reason it would be easy enough to drag it there.

I use ScannerPro by Readdle for just that.

If you don't mind, can you give us some pro's and con's to the app. I have been looking for something like this. This looks very promising but I would like to hear from someone who has been using it.

Not only I am using it myself, but I was the one of its creators.
This is a short video of me talking how it works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7Na7-wdsfE&context=C334e7ceADOEgsToPDskJ4RQ_X_l-sJwmkXwl0tRa5

It is rather powerful app with lots of features such as password protection, Dropbox, GoogleDocs sync, etc.

The new version will have completely new engine, which makes scanning x10 times faster. In addition, it will be a universal app, so you will be able to use it on the new iPad.

I hope this helps :)

Hahhha. I didn't put two and two together till I saw this post and then read the post above about the product being from Readdle.

Thank you for the video.

I would hope not. This app looks very useful - I'll pick it up once the new version is out or it's confirmed the upgrade is free.

You don't have to pay extra for the iPad version.

The update is now live and you can download the app, which is Universal.
