Do you remember seeing all those spy movies where the lead actor takes out a tiny device from his pocket to capture the plans of the enemy?


Your iPhone 6 camera is capable of doing something like that. Not to that extend, but it has the ability to do more than just take snaps.


Scanner Pro by Readdle is an app that lets you scan high quality document including paper notes, whiteboards, receipts, and other multipage documents. The scanned documents can be uploaded to cloud s

ervices and can be emailed as well.


How to use Scanner Pro for iOS 8

After downloading and installing Scanner Pro on your device, you get to scan documents in batches. Each batch is displayed at the top of the app. You can create folders to put the batches in, and once a batch of scans has been completed, it can be uploaded to several online services.


Scanner Pro


When it comes to scanning, you can take an image inside the app, or import an image from the camera roll. The latter option is an advantage if you have existing document photos, so you can still use the app for them.


Scanner Pro automatically tries to make a scanned image straight. But it does give the user tools to tweak the image; this can be done by dragging the four blue dots to a corner. The app provides a zoomed image on the side so you can move the blue dots at the right spots. After you’ve adjusted the four sides, you can move on to the next step.


The app also automatically adjusts the back text and white background, making the text as sharp as it can. The user can adjust the contrast and brightness manually by taping at the top left button. The button at the top right can be used to rotate the image. Also, you can set the document type to greyscale, photo or document.


Scanner Pro


Once the scan s created, there are several options on what can be done with it. Single scans can be saved to the camera roll, and documents can be printed through networked printers. Scanner Pro also lets you open InstaShare and Evernote, and has built-in support for uploading to WebDAV server, Google Docs, Evernote and Dropbox.


Final thoughts

Readdle’s Scanner Pro offers everything you need to convert your iPhone 6 into a heavy duty scanner. The developer has uploaded it for iOS 8 compatible devices and has added several exclusive features such as the use of Touch ID to protect the scans and iCloud Drive Support.


Scanner Pro is currently available to download at the limited price offer of $2.99. Let us know if you give it a try.

Despite the fact that iPhone 5 was released just 4 months ago, rumors of the next generation iPhone has already started to accumulate. A report from China Times claims that Apple will launch 3 iPhone variants this year. These models include an iPhone 5S and a new 4.8-inch iPhone dubbed as ‘iPhone Math’ for June release. In addition, the report says a third model will be launched before

Christmas.

iPhone math

The report claims that iPhone 5S and ‘iPhone Math’ will features 8MP camera; whereas, the third model is said to feature 12MP camera. The report, which has been translated by BrightWire, claims:


Apple will announce three new iPhone models in 2013, and two of them, the 4-inch iPhone 5S and 4.8-inch iPhone Math


(both featuring 8-mega-pixel cameras), will hit markets before the end of June, China Times reported citing Taiwan-based Commercial Times.


Citing Apple’s suppliers, the report added that the third model, which has not been exposed, will be launched before Christmas. The model will feature a 12-mega-pixel camera.


Rumors about iPhone 5S and a budget model has been around for quite a while now, however, this is first time we’ve heard about a third model. ‘iPhone Math’ is also something new from rumors mill. But it’s worth mentioning that 4.8-inch display iPhone rumors has been making rounds back in December too.


iPhone 5S and a budget iPhone rumor seems reasonable. But ‘iPhone Math’ name and 4.8-inch display seems almost unlikely.

When there are no actual news or notable app releases, I prefer investing my time in creating something for other people.


Continuing my ongoing series of tips on iOS URL schemes, here’s an adaptation o

Read More
f my existing Due bookmarklet to work better with Google Chrome for iOS (which, as I’ve pointed out several times, has a very nice URL scheme). The following code (to install it, simply copy it and paste the entire string into a bookmark) grabs a webpage’s title and URL and sends them to Due (also powered by a great URL scheme).


Thanks to x-callback-url, we can specify URLs to open in case of “error” (Due couldn’t create a new reminder) or “success” (Due created a new reminder and automatically showed the “Reminder” entry screen). In case of error, I personally decide to stay in Due; if the bookmarklet succeeds, I like to be taken back to Google Chrome after I tap the Add button.



javascript:window.location='due://x-callback-url/add?title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'%20'+encodeURIComponent(document.location.href)+'&x-source=Google%20Chrome&x-error=due%3A%2F%2Fx-callback-url%2F&x-success=googlechrome%3A%2F%2F'

As you can see above, in the x-success parameter I’m using googlechrome%3A%2F%2F — which is simply the encoded version of googlechrome:// (those scary characters give it the convenient name of percent-encoding). You can play around with encoding and decoding strings using tools like this. Because x-callback-url’s fields want encoded strings, I’m doing the same with due%3A%2F%2Fx-callback-url%2F and Google%20Chrome. Not encoding strings properly is one of the most common mistakes I kept making when I first started using x-callback-url.


(Question: Why am I using googlechrome:// instead of a full webpage URL? As far as I know, the URL scheme alone can’t reload an existing tab, even when relaunching the same URL (unlike Safari). Therefore, to simply “jump back” to Chrome, I, well, re-open Chrome.)


A note about the screenshot in this post: the dialog box is generated by Due using x-source — a parameter to give a friendly name to the “calling app” (in our case, Google Chrome). Unfortunately, though, we can’t give x-error and x-success different pretty names; both parameters will use the x-source name given in Due. That’s why, even if you want to launch Due, the dialog box will keep saying “Google Chrome”.


Interestingly, the bookmarklet works on Safari for Mac, but not on Chrome (obviously, you won’t be able to rely on x-callback-url on the desktop). You can read more about Due’s URL scheme here, and check out a quick demo video of the bookmarklet below.

Apps that rely on an active internet connection depend upon two sources; your Wi-Fi connection, or the mobile data of your carrier service. A new jailbreak tweak by the name Carnitine is now available that lets you connect to the Wi-Fi from with-in any launched app, the action you’re most likely to prefer over consumption of mobile data when downloading large applications.

ble or disable a tweak. After you’ve enabled it, you’ll be presented with an option for any app you open ‘Do I have to enable Wi-Fi every time you open this app?’. There options can be selected; Yes, No or Not Now. Yes button will switch the Wi-Fi on automatically every time you open this app. The No button won’t allow for the action, while the Not Now button will make it a pending decision.

Despite this useful functionality, there are some drawbacks. The app is only for ‘enabling’ Wi-Fi automatically, so when you close down an application, it won’t toggle itself off automatically. Furthermore, after you’ve selected a particular option for an app, the Settings can’t be configured again. This means the apps you’ve decided to enable the Wi-Fi for will be added to the permanent Wi-Fi enabled list.


Though the app is limited in functionality, it may useful for you if you’re certain about your Wi-Fi needs for particular apps. It’s a free of charge download through Cydia’s BigBoss repository. It’s compatible with iOS 3.0 +, and works on all iDevices. Let us know if you try it out and how useful it turned out to be.
