A portable scanner is helpful when you travel, but it's another device to lug. If you need to digitize documents, including contracts, receipts and business cards, a better option is to use your iPhone or iPad camera as a scanner. Scanner Pro is among the best apps for the task. Scans are saved as PDFs and can be emailed or uploaded to Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote or another cloud service and then synced to other iOS devices via iCloud. The app scans well with automatic edge detection, but lacks optical character recognition (OCR). For that, consider CamScanner. (The basic app is free, OCR is available in the $50 per year premium version.)
