Tried It Tuesday {Tiny Scan App}

As teachers we are always needing or wanting something scanned to share with our students, parents, or coworkers.  A teammate of mine told me about this app and how it helped her get her college projects completed.  (Oh, how times have changed!)

Turn your phone or tablet into a mobile scanner.

I do not have an iPhone or one that will download anymore apps, I seriously need a new phone but too cheap to buy one right now. However, I do have an iPad and downloaded TinyScan to it. :)  Tiny Scan works on both your smart phones and tablets.  If you have a document you need scanned, or even a picture, simply select the app, take a picture, and save it as a PDF.

I used Tiny Scan to create my Smartboards for the week.  I like to include an image of the sheets my students are working on in my Smartboards to help with giving directions and checking over their work.  I had a passage I wanted to include this week in an old (very old) book.  I used Tiny Scan to help copy it into a PDF and then added it to my slide.

I also used Tiny Scan last week to document a letter I sent home to a student listing all of her missing assignments.  I like the scan app better than using a picture because with the app I found the images to be clearer and easier to send to parents.


  1. This is a great idea! I can see many uses for this app, especially when creating my Smart boards as well. Thanks!

  2. Thanks for sharing this app! I'm always looking for new apps to use and this one really seems like it would be handy to have!
