Quick Travel Tip: Use a Document Scanner App
Often I’ll get random pieces of somewhat-important paper while traveling – a receipt here, a document there.
After a while, it adds up to a pile of paper that I don’t want to (1) lug home, and (2) deal with filing away when I get home.
Even at home I’m paperless as much as possible anyway. Searching for a document that’s electronically filed is easier than trying to remember where I physically put a random piece of paper.
You just take a picture of the document with your phone or tablet. The app you lets make edits, then converts the picture to a PDF or JPG file. From there, you can email the file (to yourself and/or others) or send it directly to a cloud drive.
