Scan Documents with the iOS Notes App

My Twitter PLN is such a gold mine! Here’s just one example. A longtime colleague and my friend, Debbie Boyer, posted the following tweet:

“Need a scanner while in school or @ home? The iCloud Notes app on an iPhone will let you scan multiple pages into one PDF file.”

I knew there were several apps to do this: OfficeLens, Genius, Kami or PDF Candy. But wow — I did not know the iOS Notes app had this capability.  No need to buy an all-in-one home printer. Cha-ching! Money saved, and my iPhone pushes another machine off my home desk.
