I grabbed Scanner Pro for free a few weeks ago via 9to5Mac. Awesome timing!
Previously, I was using a new, regular envelope each month to keep small paper receipts for over a year — shoved into a shelf in my home office.
I’m on a purging kick, so I aim to shred old receipts that aren’t important.
For receipts worth keeping, capturing with this app is quick, and the scan quality is phenomenal.
Which receipts are worth keeping? Here are some examples:
- Health–related co–pays, medication.
- Car maintenance.
- Non–grocery items (gadgets, non–trivial household items).
I’ve decided to scan all receipts, and I’ll archive the less important items into a ZIP file every month. I’ll also do the same in the rare case I take written notes.
If you’re intrigued, Scanner Pro for iOS is currently $2.99 in the Apple App Store — originally priced $6.99, about 58% off — for less than 48 hours.1
- I’m not sure when the promotion began, so just snag it. ;) ↩
