Ever since prices on scanners started dropping a few years ago, you can't imagine having a home office without one. Instead of hooking up a fax machine, or running out to a FedEx Store to make copies, you just scan documents. Then, you email them or save a digital copy to your computer.

Of course, you can't always have a scanner with you. That would be convenient, though.

If you're out eating with a bunch of coworkers, you may want to keep a digital copy of the receipt for your records. If you're at school and want to save handwritten notes as a document, a scanner would come in handy.

Sometimes, people ask you to send them PDF copies of a document. If you're applying for a mortgage or a new car loan, that could include tax records, bank statements, utility bills and much more.

With Scanbot, you can scan any document and save it as a PDF file or a JPEG. Each image is cropped to the paper's edge and saved to the cloud. Scanbot is compatible with several cloud services, including Dropbox, Evernote and Google Drive.

Bonus: You can also scan QR codes with Scanbot, to instantly get access to a website, without typing its URL address.
