It’s hard to believe that there are still companies and industries that use fax machines. Fax machines? WTF?
For those of us who are stuck dealing with ancient rituals as a result of these people, here are two ways to go paperless using your iPhone or iPad:
Scenario #1 – Someone Emails You A PDF That You Need To Sign and Return
In the past, you would have had to print the document, sign it, scan it and send it back. Or worse, fax it back… Today, one app is all you need: PDF Expert.
PDF expert allows you to open the PDF file right from your email app on your iPhone or iPad. Once open you can add your signature, someone else’s signature, add notes, comments, stamps, images and more. You can then email it right back to the person who sent it to you or even save it to Dropbox as a secure PDF file.
Scenario #2 – Someone Gives You Physical Documents That You Need To Sign and Return via Mail or Fax
This is the scenario that frustrates most people. Especially in the age of “now” that we live in. Thankfully, “there’s an app for that!” – Scanner Pro
Scanner Pro uses the camera in your device to take high resolution pictures of any documents and then converts them in to a black & white “scan” that you can easily email or fax right from within the app. The app is very easy to use and all you need is a flat surface to lay your document on while you take a picture of it. It’s capable of handling multiple page documents and the latest version is compatible with iCloud.
How easy is that? Say goodbye to paper, your scanner and your fax machine for good!
