About a half-year or so ago, I needed a make a copy of my health insurance card so I pulled out my old flat-bed scanner. It wouldn’t warm up so I knew it was broken. I thought about it and decided to take a photo of the document with my smartphone. That didn’t produce the results I wanted either, but I more or less got by by editing it using a graphics app.

I started searching around the Net for a scanning app for my android smartphone. I probably tried about seven or eight different apps before I found ClearScanner. It shows ads, but they aren’t too bothersome and don’t interfere with its use. As for the scans, they’re as crisp and clear as those I used to make with my flatbed scanner.

ClearScannerアプリでスマホをスキャナに

半年ほど前に保険証のコピーが必要だったので古いフラットベッドスキャナを引っ張り出した。しかし、ワームアップまで行かなかったのでだめだと分かった。

次にスマホで写真を写す方に進んだが、出来上がった写真には縁問題があった。結局、写真をグラフィックソフトで修正して、印刷した。

それからネット検索でスキャナアプリを探し出した。78個のアプリを試したが、全てはいまいちだった。その時、ClearScanner: Free PDF Scansというアプリを見つけた。無料アプリで広告が出るが、邪魔にならない程度だ。スキャンの画質は前のフラットベッドスキャナと殆ど変わらない。満足だ!
