Scanner Pro by Readdle, one of the most popular and functional scanner-replacement applications for iOS, has received a major update. The update adds on all new iPad version that is super intuitive, easy to learn, and very functional. Scanner Pro for the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch uses your device’s camera to essentially scan any document onto your iPad. Like a real scanner, but more conveniently because you are using a mobile camera that can connect to the internet. That internet connection allows you to quickly upload your scanned documents to sites like Dropbox, Evernote and Google Docs.

The application was already state-of-the-art in terms of its image processing and features like custom page sizes and integrated printing, but today’s update adds a few more enhancements. Searching through your scan library is now available making Scanner Pro more usable for power users. Another important power-user (and consumer) feature is the ability to place your scans in folders. The folder system works and looks similarly to the iWork for iOS folder system, so users of those applications will feel right at home. The new update also adds improved image processing to make scanning documents and even quicker process. The new Scanner Pro (it’s a universal app and has iPad Retina support) is now available as a free update or for $6.99 for first time users.
