Faisal is a very useful scanning application for iOS that turns your iDevice into a pocket scanner, fax, file store or air printer. As its developer Faisal Faruqi says "Mobile phones are now capable of doing what we used to do with our desktop computers and with more and more computing power and rich hardware capability in smart phones, the innovation in applications is taking the benefits of mobile technology directly to common users." So, to paraphrase that bit of technospeak: it basically means that you can now do most of the things that you do on your Mac or PC on your smart phones these days with their aid of a few great apps and this iScanner is one of them.
 
faisal turns your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch into the handy scanner that you can keep in your pocket. The faisal iScanner is a mighty seful app for both personal or business use that makes it easy to scan high quality multi page documents and create PDF, print to any AirPrint capable printer in your WiFi network, fax and download documents from virtually anywhere and store Microsoft Office, PDF and text documents and images. Alternatively, email it or save it to a document folder on your device, post it to Google Docs or fax it to any fax number - all from your iOS. You can easily view and store Microsoft Office and PDF files and unzip .zip files. Read Office documents on the go as iScanner's built-in viewer supports PDF, MS Office (Word, Excel and Powerpoint) and text, image and zip files. To read documents from other software like MS Project, Visio or OmniGraffle simply print them as PDF files and copy them to iScanner. There is a charge of 11 cents per page that Interfax charges for sending. All the other features in the app are free for unlimited use. The app price covers the fax integration with Interfax for a period of minimum one year.
 
The faisal iScanner is a very useful set of tools that gives users the freedom to use their smartphone as if it is their Mac or PC by allowing them to download, scan, print, fax, view and share documents on their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch iOS devices. It supports Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point, PDF, Text and a wide variety of sound and image file formats and users can download files from virtually anywhere. From the internet, from a computer in their wifi network, through a USB cable or from an external file management system like Google Docs. The iScanner is simple to use and features an attractive interface but most of all, it will probably turn out to be an app you will use on a regular basis.
