Scanner Pro named App of the Week, CBS to stream AFC playoffs to Macs and iPads

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Popular document scanning app Scanner Pro is now available for free after being named Apple's iOS App of the Week, while CBS announces it will live-stream its coverage of this year's NFL playoffs for the first time ever.

Scanner Pro



Apple on Thursday announced Readdle's Scanner Pro as the first App of the Week for 2014, consequently making the app free to download for a limited time.

A well-reviewed app, Scanner Pro is capable of scanning a variety of document types by using an iPhone or iPad's camera. Scans are saved as PDF documents that can be rearranged to form a single file in-app. The title also has hooks in Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote, as well as iCloud syncing across connected iOS devices.

Other features include real-time border detection, smart image processing, manual image cropping and faxing capabilities.

Scanner Pro is usually priced at $6.99, but is available as a free 29.8MB download for one week.

CBS to live-stream NFL playoffs



CBS Sports announced on Thursday that it will be streaming its portion of the NFL's AFC playoffs live to PCs and tablets for the first time, reports Broadcasting & Cable.

As noted on CBSSports.com, the network's coverage will kick off on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. EST with a wild card game between the Chargers and the Bengals. CBS will also be streaming two divisional match-ups on Jan. 11 and 12 ahead of the conference championship on Jan. 19.

Streaming may be blacked out for local markets as the same policies that apply to television broadcast are also relevant for Internet content. For example, if the upcoming wild card game does not sell out -- which is a definite possibility -- Cincinnati will see a coverage blackout.

The linked article mentions tablets; it may not include phones or touch devices? And this is Appleinsider....

Well, if it works on any form of iOS it's likely to work on all, but regardless, my point is it's not OSX/iOS specific.  It'll work just as well on PC's and other devices, as far as I can tell.

I down loaded it to try after reading this review as it seemed like something the wife, a Realtor, might find very useful on occasions. It's pretty impressive to be honest and the weird thing was I felt very '007' as I tuned over several documents to photograph ... 1biggrin.gif

I wonder how they determine where you are for "local"  My Internet connection comes from an IP pool in a distant city in an entirely different market.  I guess I could watch the game with Tor,  heheh

Readdle's apps are fantastic. Been using the free Documents for a few months and I've deleted every other pdf reader/document organizer/etc on my iPad. Now I can delete all the scanning apps. Since I don't need either function daily or on a professional productivity level in IOS I tend to try all the apps that go free before the pay ones. Many of them aren't worth keeping but the Readdle apps are as good as any pay versions, sometimes better.
