App Spotlight: Google PhotoScan

November 16, 2016

Photos from the past, meet the scanner from the future.

Scanner apps are already available for smartphones, but these are merely apps that take an image and add some bit of editing to make it look like it was scanned – but quality isn’t usually the best.

With Google’s new PhotoScan app, you can actually get a decent scan form just taking an image using your device’s camera.

PhotoScan is able to produce a reflection-free scan since the app is actually taking four photos when you click on the shutter. It will composite all the images together to remove the white areas and give you a proper scanned image.

PhotoScan is our App Spotlight for this and is now available on iOS and Android devices.
