    I would like to introduce Genius Scan to MacRumors readers.

    Genius Scan turns your iPhone into a pocket scanner. It enables you to quickly scan documents on-the-go, send the scans by email or whole documents as PDF.

    Genius Scan features smart page detection, perspective correction and image post-processing.

    Key features:
    - Page frame detection
    - Perspective correction
    - Scan post-processing
    - Send scans as JPG
    - Send multiple scans as PDF
    - Documents are processed on the phone, not sent to a third-party server

    Here are what you might want to use Genius Scan for:
    - At the university, to take whiteboards in picture
    - On the road, to archive receipts
    - To make a copy when you have no photocopier available
    - To archive handwritten notes or share them with colleagues
    - Save the perfect recipe after cooking

    Download it there! It's free for a little while!

    We also enjoyed a lot making a screencast (we think it's cool :))

    Grabbed it up and I'll give it a shot. The screencast looks good.

    Hey Jellis,

    We are considering OCR but we don't want of a half-working/slow feature. We will introduce it when have something of good quality.

    Very good app !

    I just tried this app to scan some documents and it works pretty well ! It's easy to use and fast..
    I had another app that did pretty much the same but it was $5 or $6 !
    Thumbs up !
