I've got a big old honking Canon scanner sitting on my desk. This is the device that replaced the 1980's fax machine. But it eats up valuable real estate and is somewhat of a pain to use. And I just found an incredible higher tech replacement for just 99¢!

Scanbot is a new scanning app that turns your iPhone into an incredible scanning tool. Doesn't matter if you are scanning an airport receipt or a 20 page legal document, Scanbot handles it with incredible ease. Just lay the document down on a flat surface and Scanbot will give you directions to get the perfect scan. Once Scanbot sees that your phone is aligned with the document, it automatically takes a photo and your scan is turned into a PDF.

Scanbot is now available in the App Store. Anyone want to buy a Canon desktop, flat-bed scanner?
