Adobe (Nasdaq: ADBE) has announced "Capture Modes" a new feature in its popular Adobe Scan app. The new feature enables users to toggle between a variety of capture modes to ensure that documents, forms, whiteboards and business cards are captured picture-perfectly as PDFs, every time.
Modes can be easily selected by swiping a thumb left or right, just like selecting picture modes in a phone camera app. Once captured, Adobe Scan uses Adobe Sensei AI to intelligently identify and sharpen printed or handwritten text while removing elements such as glare and shadows. Users can then store and share these PDFs, fill and sign them in Acrobat Reader mobile, as well as pull contact details directly from business cards into their phone’s contacts.
With nearly 30 million downloads and more than 140 million scans, Adobe Scan is now the leading scanning app on iOS and Android for creating high-quality PDFs. It is available for free from app stores.
Together with Acrobat Reader mobile, a free PDF reader built by Adobe that works seamlessly with Adobe Scan and is packed with essential PDF tools, users can work on-the-go as if they were in the office. Automatically search digital documents instead of flipping through stacks of paper, fill and sign forms with a few taps, and annotate and share trackable PDFs can all be done via a mobile device. With a subscription to Acrobat Pro DC, users can even edit PDFs from an iPad or Android tablet, convert Office files to PDF and back, and combine separate PDFs into one.
Meanwhile, Adobe has continuously added new features for Acrobat DC subscribers. A number of Acrobat DC updates including enhanced productivity, security and usability features were released. A few months ago, Adobe released the most collaborative, connected and mobile Acrobat DC ever, including a new way to share and review documents with just a link. In the past seven months, more than 50 million Adobe PDFs have been shared through links of Adobe’s products.
