David Sparks did this amazing video tutorial that shows you (almost) everything you need to know about PDFpen Scan+!

PDFpen Scan+ 1.3 includes these fantastic new features:

  • Improved user interface and usability
  • Effortless multi-page scans with post-process image editing
  • Adds “Receipt” and “Custom” paper sizes
  • Preview OCR text as page overlay
  • New scan cropping features improve precision and ease of use
  • Improved OCR accuracy and OCR text layout

PDFpen Scan+ enables you to scan multi-page documents, articles, receipts, and more, using the iPhone or iPad camera. Scans are cropped, sized to standard paper sizes, and visually enhanced for legibility.
