My New Favorite App

Genius Scan

Genius Scan has become my best friend. I just snap a photo of any document, and I have choices of where I want to save it.


If you are like me, always on the move at meetings, keeping up with receipts and other important documents can be a bear. I’ve spent too much time looking through folders, bags, and boxes for those important receipts.

The best feature is that Genius Scan integrates with my Dropbox, where I can pick any folder and save documents. Now my habit is to automatically pull out my phone, snap a picture of a receipt or important document, and presto — I click to save them electronically. No more paper receipts to keep up with.
