Using Your Phone as a Scanner with the Tiny Scanner App | Apps

Tiny Scanner is a great app for those who need to use their phone as a scanner. The program, available for Android smartphones, provides simple functions for scanning any document or printed paper. The file can still be saved as PDF or JPG, and shared in different ways, such as via email, Google Drive, Dropbox, OneDrive, and Evernote.

When scanning, the user can edit the captured area and set the grayscale of the letter if the paper is black and white. Color documents can also be captured by the application, which has a quick page hue edition with five color contrast. Here's how to use your phone as a scanner through Tiny Scanner.

Step 1. Download Tiny Scanner from TechTudo. On the home screen, go to the camera icon to take a photo of the printout to be scanned. When positioning the phone's camera to capture the entire sheet, tap the icon to take a photo.
