    I use a Fujitsu scansnap to scan all of my documents to turn them into searchable PDF files. I figured out the other day that with the use of the Good Reader iPad app, that I could very easily scan a document and in a matter of seconds be viewing that document on my iPad. The process involved manully dragging scanned documents onto the Good Reader app in the iPad Apps tab (below your listed of apps you've checked for install).

    What I would like to know is if there's a way that I can use an applescript, and automator action, or even a third-party app like Hazel, to automate the process of taking every newly scanned document and syncing it over to Good Reader... without the need for user intervention.

    The idea being that I could press the scan button on my scanner and without any additional user intervention required, I could have that scanned document synced over to my iPad.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

    You could enable wifi sharing in good reader and map it to a network drive and have it automatically save it to at location. Would only work when good reader was in wifi mode.

    Another option would be to sign up for a Dropbox account and have Hazel move the scanned documents to the Dropbox folder on your machine. Afterwards you can access the document through Good Readers Dropbox feature.
