iOS app myOffice adds scanning to its bag of tricks


When I went to a large city library a few years ago to do some family history research, I wanted to make copies of several pages from some reference books. The library charged 10 cents per page and before long, I had spent more that $20 at the photocopier.

The next time I need to copy book pages at the library, I’ll do it with MyOffice. It’s an iPhone productivity app that recently added document scanning ability. For the cost of the app - less than $6 - I could have all the pages I want stored as PDF documents.

Scanning is just one of many tasks myOffice can perform. I also like it’s ability to create a spreadsheet file that can be opened and edited in Microsoft Excel. It also opens documents that were created with Microsoft Office or iWork, converts them into PDF files and lets you annotate them with colors, hand-drawn sketches and highlights.

Documents can be shared from myOffice by sending them as email attachments or storing them on Dropbox, Google Drive or FTP sites. And the app comes with templates for creating a resume, meeting notes, business letters and other documents.

For the full list of myOffice’s features, check out the listing in the iTunes App Store.
