Handyscan is a popular Windows Phone app that lets you scan and share documents with ease. This will be the second update in the past month for Handyscan taking the app to version 3.18. Along with fixes to address lag time and other bugs, Handyscan becomes more integrated with Windows Phone 8.

Version 3.18 now adds Windows Phone 8 Lenses support to Handyscan that will let you launch the app from the Windows Phone camera, making the app more easily accessible. The update also adds the ability to name scans before you begin scanning the document.


Overall the update improves upon a very nice document scanning app for your Windows Phone. Sharing options include Skydrive or Dropbox and you can email documents using a variety of resolutions.  Other features include adding pages to existing documents, use digitized signatures, and add text to documents.

There are two versions of Handyscan available in the Windows Phone Store. You have Handyscan Free that is free but lacks the PDF conversion, Email options (file size), and restore backup features. The full version of Handyscan is currently running $2.99, which you can find here in the Windows Phone Store.
