How to Scan and Save Document as PDF on Android

 Scanning and saving document as PDF is quite possible and easy with Android devices.


One day, I visited a public library in a neighbouring state and saw an interesting book.  I’ve been searching for this text book for a long time. I was happy when I found it, but I don’t have enough time to go through the book and there is no provision to borrow book from the library to another state. The only option I got was to come back and I don’t even know the time I will be able to visit the state again. I immediately brought out my smartphone to scan and save some pages of the book as PDF and later read it when I get back to my house.

I told a friend about the experience. I was astonished when he replied back with ‘could that be possible’? He went ahead and said even if it’s possible, I won’t be able to convert it to text. I sat him down and explained some fact about Android phone to him. I’ll also do the same here today.
