While I am not sure how well this will actually work scanR has a potential hit if it does. The idea is that you can take a picture of a whiteboard or notes from your BlackBerry and upload it directly to the scanR website. Once it is there you can extract the text and contact information if there is such which is very useful. You can also create PDF files and send them to others. In the future they plan on adding the ability to scan business cards and documents with the camera but they need higher resolutions.
I have to say that if the results are anywhere near what they are showing on their website then this will be awesome!!! The software even lets you combine pictures together. Look at what I mean below. I will let the pictures speak for themselves:
You can read more about the service by going to this link: www.scanr.com. The service is set to go completely live tomorrow. After that you will be able to download the BlackBerry application from their mobile website which we will mention tomorrow. You can see more of the conversion screenshots after the jump. So far the basic version is free which allows for 5 uploads a month. Their plans after that are pretty reasonably priced from $2.99 – $29.90.
