Has this ever happened to you? You're away from work--maybe in an airport or taxi--and want to scan a business card, receipt, poster, or some work-related paper that's within reach. What to do? Well, with DocScan HD Pro, you can use your iPad as a makeshift scanner.

This $4 app from iFunPlay allows you to use the iPad's camera (excluding the original iPad, of course) to scan multi-page documents as well as books, coupons, and even whiteboards. You can annotate and draw on DocScan's scanned images, which are automatically saved as PDF files.

You forgot Note Plus App - a much, much better note taking app. It converts written text to type written text and even lets you record meetings. If there is one note taking app to have, this one is it. I've tried a few and I think this wins hands down. And no - I have nothing to do with the company. In addition, if you're trying to organize your thoughts, the iThoughtsHD is amazing.
