Alpharetta, Ga. One of my favorite iPhone APPS is called “Genius Scan”. I probably use it every day for one thing or another. Essentially it is a camera application that allows you to shoot a picture of something and then store it into a folder that you set up. My primary use of this app is to use it to shoot pictures of business cards when I meet people and store them in a folder that I have labeled “Contacts”. This app will allow you to shoot a photo of an object then crop the photo, rotate it, and enhance it. It is simple, intuitive, and fast. I also use it to do the following: record all warranties so that when I need them I always can find them; record receipts when I buy things that I possibly might want to return at some point; shoot pictures of phone lists, leads, ideas I spot, resumes that people send me, news stories I want to keep, web sites I spot and like, and more. There is a free version and a $3 version. I highly recommend it. And Apple just keeps the products coming!
