For some reason I am always having problems with technology. Printers/scanners/copiers are not connecting to my computer properly, they start to function very slowly or just not at all. It is so frustrating when you want to do something very simple, like scan one page and email it to someone. In comes JotNot, my new favorite smartphone app. It’s very simple and easy to use. You take a photo of your document and it converts it to a PDF document that you can email or save to your cloud. That’s pretty much it’s only function and it does it well. It’s all I need and it’s free!
I first heard about JotNot at a board meeting. A fellow board member had one copy of an event invitation that she wanted to circulate to the entire board so she used JotNot to make a PDF scan and then emailed it to everyone on the spot. It was amazing! Now I use JotNot in the workplace and at home to organize mail and bills. If you’ve been thinking about going paperless, I think JotNot would work great for scanning your documents. You’ll never loose a piece of paper again! And you don’t need to buy the fancy $400 Neat Scanner. Sure it does a lot more than JotNot, but are you really going to take the time to learn how to use all of the bells and whistles it comes with? Probably not. You are probably like me and just need to get the simple tasks done. In that case, get the JotNot app ASAP.
