[prMac.com] Frankfurt, Germany - Announcing that finarX GmbH, the developers of finarX Scan, has released the latest update for iPhone users. finarX Scan turns a 3G or 3GS iPhone into a portable scanner, complete with a myriad of flexible features. Users can snap a picture of any document, whiteboard, etc., edit it, correct perspective bias if necessary and handle the final product in a variety ways. This latest update expands the app's capabilities, offering Google Docs support and OCR integration, as well as Google's translation service.
Even before adding the Google support features, finarX Scan was listed in the Top Ten most sold Apps in Germany. The 3.0.0 release has catapulted it into the limelight. It is now the number one Business App in that country.
The reason for finarX Scan's success is simple. It does what it claims and provides good value for money. The application turns a user's iPhone into a top notch scanning device, complete with editing, saving, converting and email features. Now, users are also able to upload their scanned images to Google Docs and make use of the OCR and translation features.
Users can take saved images or capture new ones on their phone from handwritten notes, printed pages, whiteboards, flipcharts - virtually anything from anywhere. They can then edit to perfect and then do pretty much anything they need to with the resulting documents.
Options include the ability to crop documents, enhance color and image, correct perspective bias, convert to a PDF file, upload, download and of course, take advantage of the Google offerings that are now available from within the app.
