Document scanning

Today’s smart phones come equipped with cameras perfectly capable of replacing standard cameras. Pictures taken with a mobile device, especially with good lighting, have decent quality. It therefore comes as no surprise that smart phone cameras can be effectively used for practical purposes beyond taking snapshots.  For instance, to scan a document or a bill. This is what Nimbus Note’s new camera mode, the document scanner, is intended for.

Here is how it works:

– Press Take a picture;

– Select Documents mode;

– Take a picture of your document;

– Check to see if the app defined the document borders correctly. If not, define them yourself. You can also rotate the picture.

On the filters page you can make the picture black-and-white (perfect for documents) or enhance colors (if scanning magazine articles).

Scanning business cards and recognizing the contents

Business card scan feature allows obtaining an image of any business card, saving its contents (name, e-mail, company name etc) as a note. The note can then be used as any other, for things like:
– copying information;
– calling the phone number of adding it to contacts;
– sending an e-mail;

and so on.

How it works

Place a new business card on a table or any other surface, press the picture note button (or press Take a picture from inside an empty note). Then select the Business Card mode and take a picture. Nimbus Note will digitalize the business card and recognize the data from it, creating a searchable note in your account that contains all the relevant and important information on the new contact (name, phone number, company, address etc.)
