I'll let him give you the lowdown personally...
Spookily, I just happened to read a piece on scanR today over at MobileCrunch. My first thoughts were 'what does this app do that I can't already do with my camera and email?', but after further investigation and seeing the excellent manipulation that the server automatically does to the pictures, i'm sold.
Tired of spending hours and hours copying whiteboard diagrams down into a notebook? And then STILL having no way to share?
scanR for Whiteboards to the rescue! It's a Windows Mobile 5 application that, coupled with the camera in your phone, saves you from all that ink-stained tedium. Fire up the application, take a picture of the whiteboard, and get a PDF delivered right into your email inbox that you can send on to others!
scanR doesn't just forward the picture, it does its best to correct everything --look at:
scanR is currently running a beta being offered ONLY to MoDaCo readers.
What's in it for you? Free service, even after the beta ends -- all you have to do is participate!
What's in it for us? Well, we want the feedback and comments from the smartest group of people we could find -- and that's YOU!
The scanR beta application (for Pocket PC only) can be found at http://www.scanR.com...a2/scanR_b2.cab.
Note that the beta build is slightly slower than what we'll have in production because it generates extended logging (useful if you hit a bug to let us figure out what's going on). The debug logs won't exceed 1MB in size, so don't worry too much! And the final version will be much, much faster!
Give it a go, and post your thoughts here... besides, free lifetime service is not to be sniffed at either
