Problem/Task: Camscanner is a free iPhone app that will let you take photos of your receipts, organize them, and email them as a PDF.
These directions are for the iphone app. It may vary slightly for Android users.
1. Download Camscanner from the app store
2. Open the app
After downloading and opening up the app it will take you through a tutorial, check it out or skip to the end. After going throught the tutorial, you should end up at the home CamScanner screen whenever you access Camscanner.
Every receipt you scan will be added to a "document." As you can see below, the following user has created a new document for each month (as well as a personal document); each receipt has been orgainzed accordingly within the proper document.
3. Click the photo button at the bottom of the screen to take a photo
For a single receipt, keep the setting to "single." If you have multiple receipts to scan at the same time, use the "batch" option.
4. Frame the receipt with the cropping window, then tap the check-mark button
5. The "Auto" filter should work great for black-and-white receipts. Tap the check-mark button.
Optional: You can also edit the name of the receipt by tapping the "input page title" section at the top to name each individual receipt. Tap the check-mark when you're done.
6. Save your receipt into a new or existing Document
Be default, receipt images will be created in a document called "New Doc 1." Organizing your receipts is pretty simple:
If you want to move the current receipt into another collection you've already created, you can tap and hold your finger on the picture of the receipt and the tap "copy" at the bottom.
Use the "move" option so that you don't end up with duplicate receipts.
Finally, select the document where you want to move the receipt(s).
