Adobe has today unveiled Adobe Scan, a new free mobile app that turns your phone or tablet into a powerful, intelligent scanning and text recognition tool. Powered by Adobe Sensei's intelligent services, Adobe Scan automates boundary detection, auto-crop and capture, perspective correction and auto-clean, removing shadows and making text crisp and clear.
Snap a picture of any document or anything with printed text and Adobe Scan will automatically convert it into digital text that can be selected, copied or annotated with Acrobat Reader DC or Acrobat DC. The content then becomes searchable and reusable in a secure and reliable Adobe PDF.
"Adobe Scan represents a radical reimagination of how to capture your most important document content," commented Bryan Lamkin, executive vice president and general manager, Digital Media at Adobe. "Adobe invented PDF creation for PCs, and with Adobe Scan we're doing the same for a mobile-first world."
