Scanning a book using a smartphone app
Did you know you can scan documents using your phone's camera and save the files to cloud storage places like Google Drive or Dropbox?

If you've got an Android phone, your best bet is the free Google Drive app.  Just download it from Google Play, sign into your Google account, click the + and choose "Scan." You can scan multiple pages, and then save them as one file in Google Drive.  Easy!

If you've got an iPhone, you'll need to use an app like CamScanner or TinyScan in order to scan multiple pages.  Both of these apps have free versions that allow you to save the files as PDFs, and then open them in Dropbox, Evernote, Google Drive, or Box.
