VueScan Mobile App Now Available For Android - VueScan has announced that its hugely successful App is now available for Android too.
Hamrick Software announced it has released the VueScan Mobile Free App for Android devices, including Android phones, tablets and Kindle Fire. This follows the successful launch of VueScan Mobile for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch in 2011.
The VueScan Mobile Free App for Android devices is now available in the Google Play App store, the Amazon Appstore and directly from www.hamrick.com . VueScan Mobile allows you to seamlessly scan documents and photos straight to your Android device, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch from any HP, Canon or Epson WiFi printer/scanner. It works with Android version 2.3 and later, including small-memory Android phones.
VueScan Mobile uses the Wi-Fi connection on your device to find scanners connected to the same Wi-Fi network. If the scanner has a document feeder, VueScan first checks to see if there is a document in the feeder, otherwise it scans from the flatbed.
In addition to sending via e-mail and saving to the Photos App, VueScan Mobile allows you to save scanned images to your favorite apps that can open PDF or JPEG files such as iBooks, Dropbox, GoodReader and Evernote.
“We released VueScan Mobile in 2011 for iOS, and since then have received numerous requests for support for Android. We are very happy to be able to support Android, and we will be announcing support for new platforms over the next 6 months.” said Ed Hamrick, Partner at Hamrick Software.
“A year ago we also decided to make a reduced version for free – the VueScan Mobile Free App - which still contains all the essential features needed for scanning. We wanted to give everyone with a supported scanner the opportunity to experiment with VueScan without any obligation to pay.” said Ed Hamrick. “The VueScan Mobile Free App makes scanning extremely convenient. Simply press the Scan button and, in a few seconds, the document will appear on your Android device, iPad, iPhone or iPod touch."
The full version of VueScan Mobile App is available for $4.99 (£2.99) from the Apple App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch, or at www.itunes.com/appstore and will soon be available in the Google Play App store and the Amazon Appstore.
