Just got CamScanner HD installed on my iPad and very satisfied. Just miss  "Save to txt" of the OCR-results. Saving results to my Dropbox account.

I got PhotoGene a few weeks ago based on Denise's recommendation - at Roots Tech video conference, as I remember.

Caroline provides an overview of the DocAS app with screenshots (which I personally love) showing how to annotate as webpage directly on your iPad.

I just bought a new IPad.  I have an IPhone so I am somewhat familiar with how things work.  However, I'm trying to figure out how to use the IPad effectively in my genealogy research.  I'm looking forward to new ideas here.

I have used DocScan a few times and have liked the results so far.

If you want to receive notifications when iPad/iPhone apps are free, get the Apps Gone Free app - I've picked up some "expensive" apps at no cost.

I've gotten some wonderful productivity apps from this app AND it is a must to have if you have kids or grandkids that use the iPad.  They often have kid games and educational apps for free too!
