FaxFile - send fax from phone
By Actual Software Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Send fax from phone. FaxFile sends fax files or documents, including PDF files, from your iPhone or iPad to any fax number in the USA/Canada and to most international locations. Send a fax from an iPhone as simply as selecting a file and entering the fax number.
FaxFile supports sending via fax PDF and Microsoft office Word documents (.doc or .docx). It can also send as a fax images in PNG and JPG formats - this enables you to fax images from your iPhone's, iPad's or iTouch's camera.
You will need to purchase fax credits through the app store to send a fax. Fax credits are not refundable in whole or in part (bad numbers still cost us).
We will automatically retry faxes that don't go through initially - no additional charge and you don't need to do anything.
Supports sending a fax to contacts or typed in fax numbers for a one-off fax.
There is no monthly subscription required in order to send faxes. NOTE: for international faxes, check the price in the application before purchasing credits to verify that the countries you care about are supported.
If a fax fails to go through PLEASE call the number and verify that a fax machine is actually answering. This is the number one problem with failed faxes. Don't rely on "of course the fax machine is working".
Fax formats of image files (photos of documents) takes quite a while to send as a fax.
Allow at least 3 minutes per page to fax if you are sending a scan or image (photo) file.
Requires network access. Supports Dropbox, Drive, etc.
What's New in Version 2.6
Improved feedback and validation when entering international numbers.
Removed file caching on user device for HIPAA compliance.
Easy to use, faxes transmit clearly
I like this app in comparison to the other faxing apps I have tried (several). It is easy to use, faxes go through quickly, faxes transmit clearly and the cost per page is comparable. I have sent several faxes using this app and I only have a few suggestions. So far I have not been able to find a way to view previously sent faxes. In addition, I have not found a way to re-name/title the faxes either so there is no way to tell which fax is which. This gets especially annoying after sending several faxes because they all seem to run together in my mind. Also, unlike other apps I have tried, there is no option to add a fax cover sheet from within the app. If you want a fax cover using this app, you will have to make it yourself, print it and scan it with the rest of the docs. There really should be a feature that allows people to create a cover from the app - this is especially useful on the go when you are unable to create one of your own. Other than those things the app is great. I have emailed support to determine if the app has these things and I just missed them somehow. I will add a new review if there is a way. If it had these missing features than I would have given it 5 stars.
Who owns a fax machine these days?
This app got me out of a serious pinch! I needed to rebook a plane ticket for a work trip while I was in the airport, and to do so I had to fax documents to my company for them to authorize a new ticket. Who owns a fax machine these days? Not to mention, where would I find one on the road? So, I googled "iPhone to fax apps," and FaxFile popped up as a top result. I took a chance and downloaded. It's cheap, simple, and works like a dream. The quick process, from downloading the app to taking a picture of my documents to sending them off took no more than ten minutes. My company had no problem with the image quality or delivery issues. You don't pay unless you send something, so it's handy to have and cheap to use. It saves fax numbers for repeated use. I would absolutely recommend!
I just wanted to reiterate what everyone else here has said. This app is just so simple and easy to use. Had a signed document that could only be submitted by fax. Was working at home that day with no access to a fax machine (who has those anymore?). Went to the App Store for a solution and decided on this app because of the reviews. Took a picture of the doc with my iPhone, grabbed it from my photo library with the app and sent the fax. Quick, easy and painless. A small fee was charged but that was small, fair and comparable. To occasionally get a few pages sent off, this is pretty awesome.
