There has already been talk about “digital shoplifting,” this is where a camera phone user snaps a photo of an image in a magazine for purposes of haircut styles, recipes, etc. Well now Qipit might make the process of “scanning” text on the go a little easier, not that digital shoplifting should be considered its own purpose.
In fact there are times when you might need written materials, such as directions or instructions. In fact this would make taking notes at class or during a presentation quite easy. In these cases you can simply take a digital photo and then send it from the phone to Qipit, where it is transformed to a scan-quality document. A thumbnail is quickly returned to the phone, while a full-sized PDF file awaits in your e-mail box, and is also available at Qipit’s Web site.
