We've reached a road-block here, sorry.
This tech-letter is for Apple users only - specifically the iPhone, iPad, and iPod ones. If you do not own any of these products, I'd suggest reconsidering your decisions. That being said, stick around till the end and I might have a solution for you too.
If you own any of the products mentioned above (iPhone, iPad, or iPod), you do not need to buy a scanner or install any fancy scanning app. Your scanner comes with your product ($1,100 for a phone AND a scanner? win-win!).
You know Apple's Notes app? In recent years, Apple has found a way to add extra use to this. You can now draw, add tables, create grocery lists, and all kinds of fun. But most importantly, the Notes app allows you to scan items straight from your phone.
This combines the best of both worlds - taking smartphone pictures of important documents, and making them not seem like ...smartphone pictures of important documents.
