SnapLingo: The Future Of Doc-Scanner

When we think of scanner apps, document scanners are the first that come to mind. These are very useful tools for saving travel receipts, saving sketches or ideas scribbled on an envelope, or capturing notes from a whiteboard.

Here’s how they work:

Take a snapshot with your phone, edit and save the resulting scan. That’s it. No need for an expensive flatbed scanner or software for cropping and editing. You’ll be surprised at the speed and quality some of these apps can offer–and just how much time they’ll save you.

This may seem shocking, but unless you’re an accountant or archivist, you probably don’t need a traditional scanner—today’s smartphone scanning apps are simply that good. But after the ban of CamScanner, which was a China-based app, in India it was a bit tough to scan the documents. After spending hours researching many scanning apps and testing them, I’ve determined that my favourite is the lean and efficient SnapLingo (for Android). It’s dead simple to use, capable of beautiful scan quality, and equipped with excellent text-recognition capabilities. Best of all, it’s totally free. Three students of 3rd year from the Institute of Engineering and Management has developed this fantastic app which is a perfect replacement of apps like CamScanner with a lot more additional features.

SnapLingo is ad-free, compact (18MB) and highly compatible with a vast range of android versions (Starting from Android Version 5.0- Lollipop) document scanner app with lots of features and high security. It has guaranteed data security and offers password-protected pdf as well. SnapLingo is rated for all humans above the age of 3+, which is pretty evident that it is a user-friendly app.
