OfficeDrop Updates iPhone and iPad Scanner AppsIncludes New Voice Search, Social Sharing and Other Major iOS 6 Updates (October 01, 2012)
CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/01/12 -- Today, OfficeDrop is announcing a brand new version of its popular iPhone and iPad scanner apps for iOS 6. Using the same technology that powers Siri voice recognition search, users can now find documents within OfficeDrop's online cloud storage system with voice commands. The new update also includes social sharing, so users can instantly send document access links and updates from their OfficeDrop account to Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.
"The OfficeDrop iOS 6 updates are some of our most innovative yet," said OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni. "We wanted to take some of the existing features iPhone and iPad owners are excited about and tie them into the app in a functional way. Both voice search and social sharing fit with OfficeDrop's mission to create a dead-simple way for small businesses to go paperless and find what they need in an instant."
Siri Search, Social Sharing and a Lot More!
Finding documents just got a step easier using Siri-like voice recognition technology paired with optical character recognition (OCR) search technology. OCR means that when a user scans a document, OfficeDrop can 'read' the PDF image and retrieve it in seconds. Now, users can speak a voice command of a word or phrase, such as "Marriott invoice from Charlotte, North Carolina," and instantly pull up any document scanned into their account containing those words. Watch a demo of the new voice search feature here.
The new OfficeDrop iPhone PDF app and iPad app also include the popular social sharing feature from our desktop scanning solution, ScanDrop for Mac. When users upload a photo of a document using the iPhone or iPad, they can automatically generate a social sharing link and post it to sites like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. Any of their friends can access the document instantly by clicking on the link. Click here to see a video demo of social file sharing.
Here's what else is new for iPhone and iPad users:
- Edge detection: Scan a document and the app finds the edges, no cropping required. The app also adjusts the perspective if users scan a page from an angle.
- Image enhancement: Push-button image enhancement makes mobile scans crisper for better OCR and text search.
- Favorites: Mark a file as a favorite on a tablet, phone or the web and it will automatically be saved on any device for offline access, anytime.
