** Note that Evernote provides OCR for Evernote Premium users; free Evernote users may not get text searchable PDFs in their Evernote account **
** Important Limitations on Google Docs OCR: If you are using ScanDrop to upload to Google Docs and select the Google OCR option note that Google is supplying this OCR and it has certain limitations. Google limits the amount of data that it will accept during the OCR process and rejects documents that are more than 2 mb in size if you have opted for Google’s OCR – this is usually one or two pages. Google’s OCR happens at the time of upload and will increase the amount of time required to upload the document. If you have problems with Google’s OCR please contact Google’s customer service, not OfficeDrop’s as OfficeDrop has no control over the quality, consistency, latency or reliability of Google’s service.**
**OCR Note: Dropbox, you local disk, gmail and desktop mail do not provide OCR.**
**Please try ScanDrop Lite before purchasing ScanDrop - it's a free way to test to see if your scanner is supported. No refunds will be given if you haven't tested first with ScanDrop Lite.**
What's New in Version 1.1.1
Fixes Evernote authorization issues.
Works well to scan to Evernote and Dropbox
I use this ap to scan just about all my paper into Evernote. Reciepts get taped to scrap paper first. I mostly use the sheet fed scanner on my HP OfficeJet 6500A printer. There are a few things I wish they would add (like type ahead catagory selection) but it's a solid solution.
It does take a bit of getting used to. Using command + , to call up the preferences when your in the program allows you to quickly change your scanning parameters (for me switching color / b&w, scan resolution and weather to scan using the sheet feeder or not.)
It allows you to rearrange pages - so you can scan multi-page double sided docs using the sheet feeder and then put the pages in the right order. (Yeah, it would be nice if it was smart enough to do that automatically but it isn't, and my printer can only scan single side at a time.)
A great application, thanks for the update!
Thank you for fixing the Evernote authentication issue which was a problem in the previous version. Now everything works as it should. This is a great application for those of you who need to scan receipts or any other paperwork, and want an easy way to upload the results to Evernote or other cloud services. As a small business owner, I scan every receipt, and customer payment to Evernote using Scandrop. It helps end the paperwork clutter.
Clumsy & Cumbersome
I'd like to scan straight to Evernote but this app is exceedly clumsy & cumbersome, and slow as a result. It's much quicker & easier to just scan with my regular software, save the file to my desktop and then drag it into Evernote. ScanDrop doesn't remember my scanner preferences or window size. To crop, I have to resize the window to gain access to the handles. This would be OK if I didn't have to keep re-doing it over & over again. I'm hoping the developers will upgrade and refine this app. It's a nice start but not good enough yet to be practical.
