Adobe, one of the biggest names in IT industry, has launched a free app named as Adobe Scan. The app helps users scan documents using their smartphone camera and save them as a pdf document.
In a statement at the launch of Adobe Scan, Kulmeet Bawa, Managing Director, Adobe – South Asia said that the app is launched to give an experience of portable scanning to the users. Mentioning that Adobe had first launched the technology to create pdf on a PC, the same has now been implemented on mobile.
Adobe Scan is a free app available for smartphones and tablets. The intelligent technology embedded in it helps recognise text and images and converts the scanned document into a clear pdf file. The technology also helps to read the text printed on the document and converts that into digital format. This feature within the Adobe Scan app might do wonders, specially, at a time when the world is adopting to a mobile-based culture.
With this app, the users can have a free Adobe Document cloud account, which will help them save, share and edit the files online. The statement by Adobe also mentioned that the R&D centre in India played an instrumental role in building this app.
