Windows Phone app marketplace is growing rapidly with some useful application for the end-users. Today, we have found an application, named as handyscan, that claims to be a document scanner and keeper. With handyscan you can carry all your documents, images, recipes, class notes, magazine, newspaper, articles, souvenirs, balance statement, bank statement, contact card, digital signature, invoice and much more in your pocket.
Handyscan definitely aims to make Windows Phone much more useful with its unique features. Android and iOS owners are already enjoying such applications, but Windows Phone users shouldn’t feel left behind when it comes to basic needs like this. Document scanning feature is especially useful for businessman and social networking freaks alike who loves to share images and documents across different sources. Scanning a document with handyscan app for Windows phone is as easy as it could get. Documents scanning is just one click away using this app, but it doesn’t stop there. It gives you plethora of options to optimize your document before you could use it. As you would expect. it utilizes rear camera to scan the documents. Although, handyscan provides many useful features, but it still feel like a half baked application considering the features it has to offer.
Handyscan for Windows Phone
One of the lacking feature in Handyscan is that it doesn’t take a full advantage of tight social networking integration in Windows Phone. It would have been much more useful if it could let users share the document with Facebook, twitter friends. Basic needs like uploading to Skydrive account, Google docs are also shockingly missing, however, dropbox upload option could prove sufficient enough for many of us.
Below are some of the important features of this Windows Phone app
- Scan any type of document

Handyscan is worth trying on Windows Phone. It uses its own storage for scanned documents without eating much space on your phone. This is especially helpful when you’re running out of space. Of course, there is an option to save those images to your picture hub gallery so you can use it wisely and share it from picture hub gallery with your social network. Some features like sending an email and converting an image to PDF is available in paid version only. Let’s hope that some other app will offer this feature for free in near future.
Download Handyscan from Windows Phone marketplace.
