Turn Your Cell Phone into a Portable Scanner

This is such a useful web site - qipit.com.  So many times I have been at work doing the following simultaneously:

  • looking at a white board covered with notes or diagrams
  • attempting to quickly and neatly rewrite everything into my notebook
  • swearing

Qipit is a web site that allows you to take a digital picture of white board information, notes, letters, instructions, brochures, and anything similar and send it to the site, which then converts the image to a PDF.

So after 20 minutes of waiting and witnessing insanity unfold in my house, I had to grudgingly hang up the phone to deal with these issues.
