I am jazzed to hear about mobile, a new iPhone app available from scanR at the iTunes Store.  If you have an iPhone 3Gs, this app allows you to use your camera to scan documents directly into an account.  Translation:  free scanning and storage on-the-go. is an online colloboration site offered by Adobe.  Several levels of service are available.  The free account includes:

  • Five PDF conversions total
  • Three person web conferencing
  • Unlimited file downloads
  • Online office applications
  • Forum-based support

Paid accounts offer more features (unlimited PDF conversions, 5-20 person Web conferecing, etc.) mobile (free) + (starter account free) = Very good price. 

What do you think?
