How to scan a document to email?
Prerequisites for documents scanning to email on the go:
In this demonstration, we’ll use an iPad and the iPhone scanner pro app mentioned above. This iPhone scanner app works on all iOS devices that support it, including the iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPhone 7, iPhone 8, iPhone X, iPad, iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad Pro, and so on. If you’re on a trip with your iPad and don’t have access to a Wi-Fi network or data service, you’ll be limited to scanning documents to iPad and attaching them to emails; once you have access to the internet, you’ll be able to send the scanned documents via email.
To run the iPhone scanner pro app, press the home button; the app’s home screen will appear as shown below. Its home screen by default displays all scanned documents.
To begin, tap the + Add icon in the bottom right corner to start taking new scans or scanning a document to an email. Now, aim the camera on your iPhone or iPad at the document you want to scan. To scan a document with your iPhone or iPad, press the blue round scan button. We use an iPad 2 in this demonstration, which has a low camera resolution. The scanning results will be greatly improved if you use this scanner app on a recent iOS smartphone, such as an iPhone 5, iPhone 6, iPad Mini, iPad Air, or iPad Pro.
You can search the same document several times in a roll to get the best results. You will also be given the option of selecting scanned documents. When deleting the unwanted part of a scanned document on the iPhone iPad, you can drag the border of the scanned document to cut, pick, or save only the part you want to save.
Once you’ve completed your selection, save it. You’ll then be able to save the final scanned document to your iPhone iPad or share scanned documents from your iPhone iPad.
This iPhone Scanner Pro app is extremely useful for attaching scanned documents to emails, printing scanned documents via iPhone AirPrint, faxing scanned documents from an iPhone, and uploading scanned documents to Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, Evernote, Box, OneNote, and other cloud storage services.
The scanned documents will be attached to a new email with your default email account installed on your iPhone or iPad when you tap the Share button, then select Email from the above screen. It may be an email account from Gmail, Yahoo Mail, AOL Mail, Hotmail, Live Mail, or some other provider. If you don’t have any email accounts set up, use this tutorial to connect a Hotmail account to your iPad or iPhone as a starting point. You can email your scanned documents to coworkers, customers, and employees from your iPhone. You may also use the emails with attached scans as an impromptu document archiving solution by sending them to yourself. When you need to access it, simply open your email on any device you want, including your phone, tablet, PC, Mac, or another computer. This is also the simplest method for scanning a document to a device without the use of a printer or scanner.
