Dropbox scanning & DEVONthink

Dropbox this week added a scanning feature to its iPhone app, which is a good option for DEVONthink users who need a quick and simple approach to capturing documents. Scan with Dropbox iPhone, save to a folder that is indexed in DEVONthink.

There have been numerous apps that scan, and scanner apps that save to Dropbox – so this is more of the same. Dropbox has merely made it easier by including the feature in its app. Downside: the scanned PDFs are not OCRd except for customers of Dropbox’s pricey “Business” plans.

The feature is also not (yet) available on iPads.
