Scanning a document is painful in today’s highly digital world. I always get the feeling that the traditional scanner is has been and not so convenient. If you feel the same, I will show you how to use something you always have in your pocket to scan and sign a document from anywhere. This has definitely changed my life. No need to look for a classic scanner anymore; use your iPhone.
How to scan a document with your iPhone?
You may use one of the most underrated app of your iPhone to scan documents. I use this app extensively. For to-do-lists, it’s amazing with the checkboxes. I just love it. You may pin the most important notes and you may edit it from you iPhone, Macbook & iPad. When you are on the move, you just add an idea or a to do in your Notes app. Let’s come back to scanning documents.
Long press on the “Notes” app until you have a menu displayed with the following options:
Edit Home Screen
Choose “Scan Document“. Your camera will turn on.
Place your document in view of the camera.
If your device is in Auto mode, your document will automatically be scanned. If you need to manually capture a scan, tap the Shutter button 🔘 or press one of the Volume buttons.
Readjust by dragging the corners to fit the page.
Tap of Keep Scan.
Tap Save or add additional scans.
How to sign your scanned document with your iPhone?
Tap on the scanned document from your Notes app.
Tap the Share button on the top right of your screen.
Tap on Markup.
Tap on the plus button.
Tap on Signature.
You may choose from your saved signatures or add/remove a signature.
Select your signature.
Drag and place it wherever you want.
You may then save the PDF.
