Handyscan (Lite) now available

JDB Pocketware introduced Handyscan some time ago for Windows Phone 7. Handyscan is a personal document scanner for your Windows Phone that uses your phone's camera to scan and save documents. Handyscan is a very good choice for those looking for a document scanner but some saw it a little on the pricey side.  For those who saw price as an issue, a solution has become available.

JDB Pocketware has now released Handyscan (Lite), a free version of the original document scanner. The key features for the lite version aren't much different than the pay version and include:

  • Automatic optimization of scanned images
  • Zoom in/out capabilities
  • Align and crop scanned document
  • Add text to document (fill in forms)
  • Scan multiple pages per document and save them as one file

The features the Lite version lack includes:

  • Choosing the format you can email documents in (JPEG or PDF)
  • Choosing the size and quality of scanned results you send out

If you need a document scanner for your Windows Phone and are hesitant because of the cost, Handyscan Lite may be the solution you're looking for. You can get your free copy of Handyscan Lite here (opens your Zune desktop) at the Marketplace.

Handyscan (Lite) now available

I've been using docMe (also $2.99 for the full version), but this seems like a good app too. I may trial it to see if it actually works better.

Handyscan (full version) works well. No OCR, but does not upload anywhere for processing. Saves multiple pages (photos) as a PDF document or ZIP filled with JPEG images. With good light, PDF image is very readable after printing or viewing on desktop. Completed files can be emailed directly from the app. Started out at $4.99 (that's what I paid) but now $2.99. Not really sure what you can do with the lite version as send via email is not available. Without that the files you create with the app (PDF and ZIP) are useless as all you can do is view them on your phone. Can't manually attach them to an email or sync/offload to desktop per WP7 restrictions.

I have the full version and it's perfect.Also tried the free/lite version, does it all except sending the outputs to email. You can only save the outputs to the Media Hub of your WP7 and then send them via email from there, not too handy anyway... With the full version its very straight forward, and most important it allows to PDF conversion.I also note the free version adds a tiny watermark at the bottom of the output images.
