It's now much easier to scan documents using Evernote for Android. The app's latest update adds an automatic mode that determines a document's size and type the moment you point your camera at it. Evernote even automatically crops and adjusts the resulting image to get the best copy possible. Just like Scannable for iOS, which is a standalone Evernote app, the Android application temporarily keeps scanned documents in a gallery. You can delete anything you don't want and save everything else to the service, so they don't take up space on your phone's gallery.

Any image you load adjusts to the width of the screen for optimal viewing. And if you want to annotate or scribble on it, you can now draw arrows and shapes on the photo, and even type in text. Besides these new features, the update also adds a couple of abilities if you have a Premium account. First is the capability to detect a business card if you're scanning one and instantly saving its details as a note. Plus, having a Premium account means you can annotate PDF files attached to notes the same way you can annotate images.
