Tiny Scanner, Big Relief
Hey Time Hackers! I hope life’s treating you well!
Today I want to talk about a new app that was recommended to me by a friend.
Let me give you some back story.
If you’re anything like me, your experience in offices has taught you that most of the time technology is an afterthought. I’ve worked in offices for about a decade and my only experience with office machinery used to be with these bad boys:
But luckily, as I’m moving up in the office world – i.e. as I moved to another company that has a strong emphasis on efficiency and technology that simplifies our lives – I’m discovering a whole new world.
Now, I’m no stranger to the amazingness of apps. If you read my posts My Top 10 Apps for Organizing Your Life – Part One and Part Two you’ll know that I rely on apps like Wunderlist to keep my life in order.
A few weeks ago I needed to sign and scan a contract for an event that I am running. In the past I would use the scanner at work or hand deliver a document (when possible). Luckily I didn’t have too many documents to scan so I never saw a need for buying a scanner for use at home.
And now I may never buy one – because there’s an app for that.
Tiny Scanner is an app that let’s you scan in documents on your phone and then send them out as a PDF.
My friend told me about this app and I immediately downloaded the free version, signed and scanned my contract, and emailed it right from my phone to my client in less than 5 minutes!
So I bought the paid version ($4.99 on iPhone) and now I’m able to scan and save important documents with ease.
Now THAT’S a time hack.
What office processes could you use time hacks for? Is there an app for that? Or maybe you have an app you’d like to share with me – let me know!
