  1. Hi Nicole and the Gang,

    After Hearing Your conversation on scanning old pictures and using flatbeds to do them, I figure I recommend a really good app for you and I never leave home with out it. its called TurboScan

    its free right now but i do remember paying for it, but its worth it.
    what it does is it take 3 pictures of your documents ie, receipts, pictures, or anything on paper. and converts it into almost anything (PDF, JPEG etc.)

    give it a go, its worth it. keep up the good show and always looking forward to the next one. Kris from up cold up north (Canada)
