I’ve been proud of my ability to run a business for over 12 years without a Fax machine. It always seemed like just one more extra thing to maintain. Probably once or twice a year I’ve had to ask a friend or neighbor to fax something for me. But most of the time I’ve been able to scan whatever I needed from my printer and email it. There have even been a couple times I’ve told people to snail-mail me things.
This changed about a year ago when I read about a fabulous app called Genius Scan, free for iPhone and 99¢ for the Android platform. Imagine using the camera of your smart phone and within moments having a pdf for emailing. It’s that simple.
